Hello Bassam,

For most people, the best thing you can do to prepare for the IELTS is take an IELTS preparation class. If that doesn't work, however, there are also numerous online resources that I can recommend. Our IELTS section has some general advice and TakeIELTS has a lot of other useful information and specific advice on how to prepare for the test. In addition, our Facebook page has useful links from time to time, and I'd also recommend checking out the British Council YouTube channel's IELTS playlists.

Good luck and let us know how it goes!

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

My Favourite sport is swimming. because while swimming swimmers all major muscle strain. At swimmers beautiful figure. Swimming is an international sport. I love to swim in the sea in summer.

My favorite sport is skating because this sport makes people strong and health. I prefer to play sports, it's very interesting. I don't like football but it is very popular in Russia . It's a national sport . Russians love football.

Interesting your comment because you don't like football but your country likes. In Brazil is very popular and I like.

My favorite sport is volleyball. I like that the game involved two teams, as in many sports ball games. But special distinction, for example, football is a team that plays as one. There is such a large field, so the players the team can at any time to support you.

My favourite sport is chess. because:
1)chess teachs to be accurate.
2)chess teachs to be patient.
3)chess teachs to be competitive but it takes a lot of time.
As for me I prefer to play sports, it's more exciting. Football is very popular in Russia despite our football team doesn't win. I'm not a football fan.
