  12. Hi Liz
    What all types of questions comes in writing section for ielts general training?

  13. I've been visiting all kind of websites for this matter and even payed online courses, but this is the first time I really understood the structure in a very simple way. Great teacher.

  14. I wonder when I should use words such as proportion, percentage, number, amount, level … in the plural form. For example:

    1. The percentages/percentage of boys in 6-11 and 12-16 age groups participating in basketball were/was 89% and 78% respectively.

    2. The proportion/proportions of Vietnamese people living under the line was/were 20% and 5% in 1980 and 2010 respectively.

    3. The number/numbers of grades 9 and 10 are 200 and 300 respectively.

    4. The amount/amounts of beef and fish used was/were 10 grams and 20 grams respectively.

    Please help me understand the mechanism of this one. Thank you!
