      I am very happy. that you write me my teacher Rebecca. It’ something great. Thanks a lot

      Tuesday, January 20th 2015

it looks that the seventh answer is incorrect as it refers to the first choice as the correct one,whilst it should be the third.
am i right?

Sunday, December 7th 2014

    I really didn’t understand you, maybe because of my bad English, but the 7th question’s answer is “Could you to repeat that please” and the 2nd and 3rd answers are correct to say but don’t suit the question.

    Wednesday, December 10th 2014

    Remember, the question asked which answer was WRONG!

    Sunday, January 11th 2015

Hi, Rebecca! I want to pass bec vantage exam next year. But I can’t get enough preparing materials. Could you advice me something? Thank you

Monday, December 8th 2014

    The best option is to order materials related to the BEC Vantage exam of course, but I see from the Cambridge website that you can download samples of their exams.

    Once you do this, check the kinds of reading, writing, listening and speaking tasks that are included. You may be able to use guidebooks for the TOEIC and the IELTS to help prepare for this exam as well, but first make sure you understand exactly what is included in your own exam, so there are no surprises. You could also try to find a private teacher who might be able to help you by researching what’s required to do well on that exam. All the best to you.

    Tuesday, January 20th 2015

Rebeca, like always yours lessons are excellent. Carry on putting various vídeos. You are the better teacher. Congratulations. I wish talk to you one day for training my english.

Tuesday, December 9th 2014

    Thank you kindly for your feedback. I am happy to hear you find the lessons useful. I wish you all the best.

    Tuesday, January 20th 2015

100% :3
I’ve something to say for you, maybe we shouldn’t memorize answers, but at least we should take a general idea about the answer and train answering beside prepared answers, aren’t I right?

Tuesday, December 9th 2014

    train answering beside prepared answers,شو بعني؟ ممكن توضح …

    Sunday, December 14th 2014

    Yes, I agree, you should practice answering the questions in your own words after studying model answers. The model answers will teach you how to structure your answers and may also give you useful vocabulary. Learn these lessons and apply them to creating your own answers. I wish you all the best.

    Tuesday, January 20th 2015

Thank you for your great tips <3 <3

Wednesday, December 10th 2014

thank Rebecca very much.

Wednesday, December 10th 2014

Hey teacher, if “kids” is a slang word then why would the British Council name their website by “Learn English Kids British Council”? would you explain please?! :) Thanks

Wednesday, December 10th 2014

    The British Council decided to use informal English on their website, which they have a right to do. After all, they are not appearing for any exams! I would recommend that students use proper, formal English on their exams to get the highest scores. My best to you.

    Tuesday, January 20th 2015


Thursday, December 11th 2014

10/10 thanks for your great tips. it’s very useful for us.

Friday, December 12th 2014

Thank you Rebbecca I will pay attention to these tips.
Can I follow these tips also in formal interview?
Thank you

Friday, December 12th 2014

    Yes, in terms of being formal, grammatically correct and business-like. In an interview, though, sometimes it depends on the style and personality of the interviewer and the job you are applying for. You have to adapt to that style while being convincing. All the best to you.

    Tuesday, January 20th 2015

Speak loudly, and not softly and quiet made my score be 90%. Ok, next time I will speak so loudly, but so loudly. Hihihihihi. Thank you teacher.

Friday, January 2nd 2015

    Could you repeat that please?

    All the best.

    Tuesday, January 20th 2015

    Okay, I understand. You misunderstood question number 7. You were supposed to choose the answer that was INcorrect.

Wednesday, January 7th 2015


Friday, January 9th 2015

i scored 90 it is very useful thank you

Friday, January 16th 2015

Hi, Rebeca
Firstly I want to say thank for giving some amazing lessons. I have watched all.
Secondly, I would like to aks you how do I learn/build IELTS vocabulary? I went to the library and they have 50 books about it.
* 400 words you must know
* 1100 words you must know
Which book should I choose and how to use/build it effectively?
Thank very much.

Friday, January 16th 2015

    Thanks for your feedback. When you look through the books, you will find many strategies to improve your vocabulary. I would recommend choosing the books which please your eye and which use the methods you enjoy the most, because then you will feel like studying more often and in effect, learn more. You can also take badly designed books with good vocabulary and create vocabulary learning methods of your own. The more you interact with the vocabulary, the easier it will be to master it. I wish you all the best.

    Tuesday, January 20th 2015

100% I really like your lessons my brilliant teacher

Saturday, January 17th 2015

    Thank you kindly. My best wishes to you.

Please do check the many useful resources on http://www.goodluckielts.com to help you get a higher score.

Monday, April 20th 2015

Hy Rebeca, I think that a question doesn’t show the correct result.
Because, I think that the auxiliary verb “could” doesn´t can be followed of the infinitive verb only base verb. (Question 7)

By the way, thank you for exercise.

Thursday, April 23rd 2015

Thanks a lot for your teaching, and it makes me easier to learn how to speak well.

I just start to prepare for IELTS, so sometimes I don’t know how to prepare at the beginning. Could you give me some advice to follow please? ><

How to improve our speaking????????
plz show me a good way to i improve my speaking…

Monday, September 14th 2015


I think I’m sure thick “c” for number five. But that’s not dilemma at all. 8 of 10 was so impressive personally. Next time should really take a look carefully and not to rush to fill the answer like in the number seven.

By the way, I would like to take an IELTS test next month and my last simulation test was far away from piece a cake. If anyone who would like to find partner to practice, I will try to arrange my time, so we can achieve our purpose together. My aim is pass band score 7, especially on speaking. Here’s my Skype: Yudha_Saputra91

I’m very appreciate for your effort and time to add my Skype.

Ups, and, I would like to thanks to Rebecca for the comprehensive tips from the lesson. I wrote it down on my white paper so I could prepare and practice when I’m offline.


Friday, September 18th 2015
