    Dear Chris,
    I would like to say a big “THANK YOU” for everything you’ve done to your audience. I’ve seen a lot of websites and blogs with IELTS tips while preparing to my exam. They gave almost no information or the tips were general etc but YOUR website almost shocked me (:D)I can’t find words to tell you how thankful I am. Every single article is full of really useful info and your explanation are super-clear and simple. Your website was the only blog I was reading before IELTS and I had only 10 days to prepare myself. Yesterday I’ve got my results: listening 7.5, reading 8.5, writing 6.5, speaking 7.0 and overall 7.5.
    You are the best IELTS tutor I could ever find and I wish you and your family all the best.
    Merry Christmas and regards from Uzbekistan.
