Please read before sending me an email…..

I love to hear from people who use my site, but I also get up to 400 emails per day! This can be a little overwhelming because I have to read each of them, understand the problems and then write a reply. This can take several hours a day, so I’d really like it if you could help me out.

99.99% of your questions are answered in the pages of this website. I know that this requires you to do a little work and look for the answer, so I’ve created some cool searching tools below.

First, you will find a search box below. Put some keywords from your question in there and it will magically take you to a full guide that will help you out

Next, I have a list of the most frequently asked questions. Take a look at these and you will normally find a short answer to your question. If you still need help after that, have a look at my contact form below. Thank you so much for your help. Chris.

Check out my Task 1 Grammar and Vocabulary Guide below for more help on this:

Task 1 Grammar and Vocabulary

Four:

Introduction

Overview

Details 1

Details 2

You can put the overview at the end if you like.

You should not write idioms for Task 1.

The only time this is acceptable is if you are doing General Training and it is an informal letter.

No. A conclusion is a summary of YOUR ideas and your opinion. Task 1 is simply reporting what you see, so there shouldn’t be any of your ideas or your opinion.

Instead of a conclusion you should write an overview.

The reason lots of people get confused about this is some teachers, books and even one British Council website call the overview a ‘conclusion’. It’s not a conclusion, it’s an overview.

Finally, it does not matter where you put the overview paragraph. I teach my students to put it after the introduction, but it is also fine to have it as your final paragraph.

Most people think that it's difficult to practice speaking at home, but there are lots of options, all you have to do is look.

First of all, you can practice past exam questions at home by yourself and record your answers. Listening back to these will really help you understand your strengths and weaknesses.

There are also lots of language exchanges online that allow you to practice with someone online.

Finally, there are a tonne of Facebook groups full of people wanting to practice IELTS. Click the link below to go to the official IELTS Advantage one:

Idioms and phrasal verbs will help boost your score for vocabulary, which is 25% of your total mark, but only if you use them correctly.

If you use them incorrectly, it will lower your score.

Below is a full guide on this:

Idioms and Phrasal Verbs

Absolutely not! You’ll probably sound ridiculous. There are no extra marks for having a ‘British’ accent. The key is to sound clear and for the examiner to be able to understand what you’re saying.

Yes, I do. It is called IELTS Writing Academy and it is a complete step-by-step guide for people hoping to get a 7 or above.

There is lots of help from me, including one on one Skype lessons and personal writing corrections, so the number of people allowed to join is strictly limited. For this reason, I only open it up to the public 2-3 times per year.

If you would like to join, you should go to this link and add your name to the waiting list. I’ll email you when it opens again.

The next question I normally get asked is ‘Can you correct my writing for free?’

Sorry, no. If I did this for free I would have to correct hundreds of tasks per day and this is just not feasible. If you want free stuff, check out the hundreds of free articles on my site. If you want my time, you will have to pay.

Videos and Emails

I wish I could, but this is an automated system and you will have to wait for the next video. Don't worry, the next video will come very soon.
Access to the course is very limited. I give you lots of one on one help in the course and I have to keep the numbers very low. We will be giving you more information about how to join in Video 3.
When this happens it is normally because of the browser or device. Please try viewing the videos on a different browser or device. If that does not work, please clear your browser's cache and/or update your browser. Many thanks and I hope you enjoy the videos.
This normally happens because you have given us the wrong email or the videos have gone into an email folder that you have not looked in yet. Please check all email folders, including spam.
Look in your deleted emails folder.
