Hello adeel,

I think with practicing we can improve our skills, and here a plenty of topics, lessons, so on you can make search which will give you a subject you need.
Either, in my opinion BBC learning English is useful too so so.

Hi Sir,
Indeed I do not have a teacher yet for teaching me English, because I was attend a class with Arabic teacher who taught me and sometimes he was laughing and all the class about my pronunciation for some words in English which give another meaning. Also he stopped me when I need to speak because I had some mistakes in grammar but I have been an ability to speak with confidence and effectively.
Any way, that done, and nowadays I study only at home by using a lot of sites here which have been helping me more and so so.
So, I was wondering whether I could go on that way only to reach an Ielts exam to sit there on 31th of May? I have been preparing for all models daily for nearly four hours at least. I tried to improve my English language in all skills as much as I can. So what is your recommend in that if you please could you inform me what is your advice in that? Thank you a lot.

Hi mysa72,

It's great to hear that our site has been helpful to you. To help you prepare for IELTS I would recommend another British Council site: Take IELTS. You can find practice materials, tips and advice and mock exam papers there - it's a great site, specially designed to help IELTS candidates.

Best wishes and good luck!

Thank you Sir for your replying, Actually I have been studying there a lot of things either I always have gotten benefits and follow all tips either.
I practice their lessons daily, I hope achieve my goal in one month, my level intermediate and my score there 5.5 with practicing not real test. So, I need 7 in all models. Hopefully.

hello everybody,
I would like to improve my writing abve all how to write a review and an article

Hello felhi,

Our Magazine has articles on different topics, and the internet is full or reviews and articles - see, for example, the BBC or search for the name of your favourite film or book plus the word 'review' and I expect you'll find some.

If you're referring to the review and article writing tasks on Cambridge ESOL exams, I'd suggest you do an internet search for the name of the exam plus the type of writing, e.g. 'FCE review'. You'll see there are lots of useful pages and even videos on Youtube on the subject.

Good luck!

I have writtnig exam next friday at BC. So i need to write best. But my grammer knowledge is not good. So could anyone help me?

Hello nishi,

What kind of writing is it that you'll need to produce? It's important to read and practise writing the kinds of texts that you need to produce. Become familiar with how they are organised, how formal or informal they are and what kinds of phrases are typical of them. Try to imitate all of that in your own writing. There's more general advice on improving your writing on our Help page.

Good luck!
