    :) It can’t hurt, Annie, but I understand.

Hi Adam. Such nice a quiz. A lot of tricks ;) Actually in the real IELTS test questions like these appear one after another, thus having found the first answer you have to find next one. If next answer Is, for instance, the third one, therefore the second answer will be “NOT GIVEN”. Since I applied the technique I have never made a mistake in this type of questions.

Please correct grammar ;)

    Don’t be frustrated, Nguyen. This is advanced English for a difficult test. If you’re not planning to take this test, then just use this as a goal to reach in the future.

Hi, Adam.
I know it’s not related to the topic, but I would like to ask a question as to usage of “about” in the context to be mentioned.
Is it right to use “about” instead of “on” in the sentence below?:
I don’t have any money on me (I don’t have any money about me).

Profile photo of Najiba Nuri Najiba Nuri

    Hi Najiba,

    In this case, no. On me means on my person, which further means cam carrying it. About can mean around, as in There are many people about me, so i should be careful about my wallet. :)Does this help?

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      Yes. Thank you:)

      Profile photo of Najiba Nuri Najiba Nuri

Hi Adam, I really don’t know what to say? It was my first attempt, and yes it’s difficult but i would like to take the challenge and improve myself..:)

Profile photo of Natpaphat Natpaphat

Thanks, Adam.
I would like to ask this sentence is correct or not? “The course is of 3 months duration” or “The course duration is 3-month”

Profile photo of Sophie Sophie

    Hi Sophie,

    To be honest, I wouldn’t use either:

    It’s a 3-month course.

    The duration of the course is 3 months.

    The course is of 3 months’ duration (notice the apostrophe)

    Hope this helps.

It wasn’t easy for me i got 3/10. but i will keep working

some of the answers were a bit confusing..
Please can you guide what should be done…I mean any effective strategies??

    In a comment, there isn’t much to say Ashmi. You should get a good practice book, build your vocab, and look for other lessons here to help. Mostly, practice.

Mr. Adam I need help! #spelling

I know my comment is not about the video above, BUT! is screaming for IELTS help.

I will take the IELTS soon and as a self-taught, I noticed I am having problems in the listening section with spelling. Sometimes, you think you know the form of a word until you write it down. To illustrate my point: eyesight, audioguide, farmland, newsletters, and clubhouse are words that apparently must be written together. As a Spanish speaker, I made mistakes in writing them apart. I was trying to find online a list of common words in English that must be written together. However, I found lists of compound words with a hyphen.
Please, I need help, I am tired of losing1,2 or 3 points during my home practices because of silly mistakes.
I will appreciate your collaboration.
PS: Thank you for everything you do.

Well, 6 out of 10… Not bad! The four wrong answers were related to Not Given. Really difficult to find or interpret.

Profile photo of pmmarques pmmarques

I thought my English was advance, until now!
Wow! It was a challenging quiz. After failing I was glad to see the answers explained. Sometimes you miss one mark for just a tiny but significant factor. Excellent lesson Adam!

Profile photo of NOA1991 NOA1991

Paraphrases are really difficult for me. Should try my vocab level up more than now.
No way to get 7.5 IELTS points at present level.:)

vocabulary used in the paragraph is too passive to understand

Profile photo of Uday Singh Uday Singh

Hello, Adam and everyone.
True/False/NotGiven questions (to be more accurate the answers to these questions) are often not following the common sense. Q#1 in this quiz is an example.
The text gives clearly only the fact that author believes that ‘conspiracy theorists in the US distrust their government’. This fact does not anyhow imply the opposite. Therefore, we do not know from the text for sure whether the author DOES believe ‘that the authorities suspect conspiracy theorists’ or DOES NOT believe it.
In other words,the statement “Group A distrusts group B” does not imply “Group B does not suspect group A”. It just contradicts the basic laws of formal logic.
There are always one or few questions like the one I described in the test. That is why many people (including me) dislike IELTS exam. Btw, CAE i’ve passed with strong C1 level.

9/10 I am more than satisfied with the result. I had one NO/NOT GIVEN mistake, which is a common problem, IMHO, of course.

Profile photo of dentistHR dentistHR

4/10 Oh my god. Even worse, actually, I just got tired at the end of the quize and simply gessed the last one answer. So, I`m not bad as a witch, but really bad in reading, hah.
All this time I thought, I`m good in reading. Kill me, Adam.

Profile photo of Nivelena Nivelena

I learned English in Canada for 6 months. Before I went to ESL school I got a CLBT test and my reading level was 8 which was relatively high. I was a bit tired before taking this quiz but I tried to take this quiz as best as I can but I got 2 out of 10. I was shocked and frustrated. As you said, it’s all about vocabulary and reading practice. I won’t be frustrated.
