Your tips were very useful to me, thanks a lot.

Tuesday, March 11th 2014

Thank you. I think that will be good, if you will start to make videos about listening tips. I have noticed many differences between English in the classroom, and English used by English native speakers.

Hello Emma
could you please tell me when the past tense of ‘must’ is ‘had to’ and when it is ‘must have done’ ?
thank you

Wednesday, March 19th 2014

    “had to” is similar to force.I had to do my project.It means I was forced to do that.”must have done” is expectation.I must have done my project by now,but I am late.The bus must have arrived by now.I hope it helps.

    Thursday, March 20th 2014

Friday, April 24th 2015

Hello Ms Emma,

I am preparing for a general IELTS exam which I have in a week, and I am taking a lot of advantage of your videos and those of other teachers here. I am very grateful and I will be translating that to actions soon :)

First of all, I would really like to thank you and all other teachers for giving time and effort to help us all.

Second of all, I have a few questions that are kinda bugging me regarding the IELTS, especially the listening part:

1- How important are spaces and hyphens in the answers? Let us say if I hear a word like “clubhouse” for instance, and I write it as “club house”, would it be considered wrong? (Note that word limits are 2-3 words). Similarly, if I hear a world like “North-west” and I write it “Northwest” or “North West” would it be considered a mistake?

2-When writing dates what is the best format? Sometimes they say “22nd of October”, I would write that (it is within word limits) and then I see the answer is “22 October” or “October 22” or “October 22nd”. Would my answer and any of the latter be accepted?

3- How to write timings? Should I write “8:30 AM” or “8.30 AM” ?

4- If I am supposed to choose two letters of write two words for a single question, how would I separate them ? Should i separate them using a space or commar or hyphen ? “A B” or “A,B” or what ?

Thanks and I appreciate if you can answer any time soon.

Kind Regards,

A huge fan ;)

Friday, May 22nd 2015

    I’m Yan. How did you pass the IELTS? Was it difficult for you? I’m gonna take it soon.

The English spoken in Canada is American or British???

Monday, September 28th 2015

    Neither; it’s just Canadian English, which has things in common with both American and British English.

    Monday, September 28th 2015

      OK.. But the Canadian accent is more similar to the American or the British accent?

      Tuesday, September 29th 2015

        American, but the north of the country. (People in the Southern and Western US have very different accents)

        Wednesday, September 30th 2015

Wowww, Thanks Emma, but the true I think is difficult at least for me… cause I understand but needs to be faster for answer. Yesterday, I saw a lot of Examples IELTS, tests, but they usually say for read all the answer before listening, and I’m not use to do that and not in all my courses nobody say that … They first read and then they ask you answer, understand me???

Monday, July 29th 2019

Hello Emma, I sincerely appreciate your time & energy to deliver this listening section. I got 9/10 but i disagreed with you that section 4 is more difficult among the sections, instead section 3. The conversations that involve more than 2persons are more difficult, because it has different conversations. Thanks

Saturday, August 3rd 2019

Thank you Ms. Emma.

Friday, April 10th 2020

9/10! Listening test was the difficult section when I studied at university. If I have Emma’s lesson at that time, I’d learn better than before.

Wednesday, June 10th 2020
