Hi Liz, your videos are really v.helpful for IELTS takers.

Liz i am planning to undertake computerised IELTS, can u plz guide me is it really matter if i spend 30 minutes on Part 1 and 30 minutes on Part 2 of IELTS writing.

Could you please provide a video on writing task 1 with a bar chart and pie chart together?

Can we make 3 bp ??

Is the ceteris paribus usefull in ielts writing task???

Hi Liz, I am preparing to IELTS Academics. I would like to know is there any way to check out the whole written essay online? What grammatically mistakes I have done and where I need to improve while writing. Please help.

Hi Liz! You really are the best IELTS online teacher out there! I have a quick question: In the video, you advocate putting the introduction and overview in two separate paragraphs. I usually write about what the graph shows and the main feature/s of the graph in the first paragraph. In other words, the introduction and overview together as one introductory paragraph. Will I lose marks for coherence and cohesion if I write task 1 in this way? Many thanks in advance.

Writing a letter to a colleague, who’s leaving the organisation and you are not able to attend his party.
Will it be semi-formal or Informal?

Mam video on writing for general ielts exam please

Is it a must to have 4 paragraphs? Because I heard that some people put the overview and introduction in 1 paragraph. So overall they have 3 paragraphs.

Can we use numbers in overview, for instance (Obesity problems were more frequent in older groups in year 1955 and 2015).

Hi Liz, you are the best!

I wrote my exams on the 1st December 2018.
The results came in as
Listening. 8
Reading. 7
Writing. 6
Speaking. 7
Need to sit for IELTS again

Can you provide a lesson for task 1 general training.

Good teacher

Hi Ma'am Lizz.
Happy Friday in UK!
The structure described in this video is only applicable to academic IELTS test? Or also to General IELTS?
Please let me know.

Thank you so much liz for making these videos . They cut all the time wasting out and taught me what is most important. You’ve taught me exactly what the examiners are looking for . I took your advice and stuck with your methodology. I passed my IELTS general with a score of 8 and actually scored 9 in speaking. Once again keep doing what you do and God bless you as you make lives easier( you give us a chance at changing our lives , moving to more developed countries, earning a better living, looking after their children and… Read more »

i am a new learner, just started watching your videos.
I want to know about other type of writing task one . what i mean is other than Charts
for example, "given pictorial diagram and summarize the information and reporting the main features and make comparison where relevant" .
here no data, no fluctuating trends no lines, graph etc
if you have such lesson please share the video link.

Some teacher say that you need to write more and more proverbs such as "every garden has weeds" and so on my questions is that it will enhance my score or it will mitigate my score please help me I'm confused

Hello Liz and co-learners , I have appeared for ielts twice , the second time i was expeting 7.5 in writing but got 6.5 . In the other three sections i have 7.5 or more . Could , you please suggest if i should opt for EOR .

Moreover, Some are saying, it's better to write in 5 paragraphs. so,plz suggest….

It was good. But, how should we divide Paragraph A n P. B? for IELTS General Writing real-time guidance

I am confused if I need to write both advantage and disadvantages of the topic
Or if i am agree then only positives of the topic??

Greetings Liz ma'am,
I want to ask you that can we write basic statistics or derive statistics from the data given in Academic Writing.
For example, if pie chart shows satisfaction score of five variables (very satisfied, satisfied, neutral, dissatisfied, very dissatisfied) in percentage, then can we write mean of the data (after calculating) in the second paragraph(overview) after paraphrasing.

Hi. I have a question. Writing a letter to a friend telling him/her about a new job opportunity can be written in semi formal tone or not? I sat exam few days back and wrote semi formally with Formal Language + Short Forms and bottom salutation as

Fantastic tips, thanks a lot.

Can I use I'll, 'I'd instead of I will/shall and I would in Writing Tasks 1 & 2?
