In this video, I’ll show you the key steps you need to take to reach your target band score.

thanks Adam this video is really helpful you certainly did a great job with this illustration thanks again
Oh one incorrect ? Adam , That was a great lesson .It will help me out. Thanks million trillion ☺
Thanks for the lesson Adam. I do think that strong English language accuisition is the best way to score your (desired) band, however, thanks again for the useful tips.
Thanks Adam, this lesson was great..Now I know how to do the test..
Could you please help with these sentences to see they are correct?
1. I did a wheelspin to my car
2. I had a wheelspin in my car
3. The car did a wheelspin or The car had a wheelspin?
Maybe you mean “I did a wheelspin with my car.”
Thank you Adam for this lesson.
Thank you, Adam! im inspiring to deal with the test.
hi adam, thanks for this lesson, maybe i am just a begginer i haven’t thought yet that i will take tests like these tests but according what mentioned in the videos, it looks so hard and it scared me .why don’t put a full example of this test on this website?.
You should visit ielts.org. They explain the test format and supply sample questions there.
Thank you very much for this link!
HI Adam, I got 9/9, useful lesson,thanks a lot, now I know, that my route is still have brain in english :)
Thanks Adam, but now I am in doubt. Isn’t the test valid for 2 years only?
Yes, it is, but once you have your score, you should take advantage of it. Most people need the test just once to get into school or for immigration. After that, most people don’t need the score again.
Wow, what a long exposition and explanation about IELTS (International English Language Test Student), although I didn’t think that I would have the chance or possibility to pass this exam before but now I find it very interesting, improving my skills about reading, listening, writing and speaking. I believe I should focus it on my daily study, aiming to encourage my motivation about this topic of the IELTS. Thanks a lot teacher Adam.
Sorry I think I had a mistake spelling IELTS, it will be International English Language Testing System, then the error is fixed. Thanks.
Thanks Adam, interesting and useful ideas to be aware of before taking any test.
Very good lesson! Thank you, Adam! I am thinking about my abbility and readyness to do IELTS test.
I think this one can be a good and necessary lesson for those who want to take the IELTS as you mentioned. Thanks a lot.
I just want to say, you awesome.
Good job teacher but would you advise to take the TOEFL or any other type of test to get a better job?. Is it necessary?. Regard!
In some countries, employers want to see a test score. For example, in Asia, the TOEIC test is quite commonly asked for. If you can get a good score on the TOEFL, that could be useful as well. The best thing to do is find out what the requirements in your country are.
Good luck ;)
Thanks, Adam, love your class, thanks for your clearly expression. You are wonderful!
Nice lesson I got 6 out of 9
mr.Adam my favorite teacher on this site. Thanks a lot!

Thank you Mr Adam
Hi Adam! Very nice video, even I am not going to do the test, I am sure this lesson is really useful to improve my English.
So nice website, thank you.
Thank you Emadkamil :)
Can someone tel me where I can find free videos lessons.
You’ve found them here Yoonis :)
You can also search YouTube for others.
Sorry, our videos are only available on YouTube. Our teachers make money from YouTube ads, which lets us offer all these lessons for free. We hope you understand. ?
thanks Adam!!! great ideas for me
Thanks Adam good work.
Can I have a link for Cambridge IELTS books which you have mentioned in the video.
If you go to amazon.com and type ielts in the search you will find many such books.
So much thanks Adam, I enjoyed of your expression, I’m trying to improve my listening and speaking on the other hand, I’m not going to pass exam so I’m relax really.
Hello!! Thanks again! Adam I have a question it doesn’t have to do with this but I hope you can answer please… Is there any difference between “I have no … ” and ” I don’t have …” Do I explain myself? thank you so much Adam!! =D
I have no + noun (I have no money)
I don’t have + any + noun (I don’t have any money)
They both mean the same, but the structure is different.
That was quite useful as well!
I like you so much , what an amazing lesson is this !
I got 9/9, very helpful and generous Adam :)
Need a Speaking Partner, I am going to take IELTS in Jan Please Need help
Skype ID: ehtisham.hussain.kokab
Good luck Ehtishamhussain :)
I’m looking for the guide how to prepare to TOEFL test. I have worked with many of videos on Engvid.com with the different teachers. All of them are amazing, but for me your videos work the best. I understand better, learn faster and with a great desire. So, can you, please, help me to find some kind of guide to study English in a certain order, like having a plan what to do 1st, 2nd … Or, may be you already have it somewhere on your channel, but I just don’t know. Thank you in advance.
Ideally, the first step is to build vocab and increase reading speed. You can do both at the same time. Also, get as many practice tests as you can and work with these. Practice note-taking, and find someone to give you feedback on the speaking and writing sections as well.
Hello, Mr Adam. Thanks for such an informative lesson! Although I took IELTS in May 2015 and got 7.5 overall, I am going to take it a second time and get at least 8 next summer. One of the most helpful resources is youк own website, which I recommend to everyone because of its great value. Thank you for making me pay proper attention to some aspects of academic writing that I somehow ignored in the past (or simply didn’t know:)). I hope your hard work is appreciated all over the globe.
Thank you Dior. I appreciate it :)
Adam – you are great teacher! It’s the nice lesson. I want to ask somebody to help me with English and speaking with me in Skype or any other program. I hope for you hepl! peace!
Hopefully someone here will contact you Nikolay. Good luck :)
I got 89 thank you Adam
Very useful, thanks, Adam.:)
Got 89,Thank you teacher it was a great lesson I never had this information.Teacher would you please help me understand this sentence,I came across while i was reading a news on “The Telegraph”
Who has was involved in the crash?
I haven’t ever seen such sentence stucture before,there for unable to figure out whether to which tense this sentence belongs to.
please explain me the use of “already” in these sentences,since I just can’t get any meaning out of these sentences because of the use of already here.
Geez…quit doing stuff like this,already.
Stop blaming me,alredy
Is this the sentence: Who has was involved in the crash? If yes, then it’s a typo (the editor missed it). the ‘has’ is unnecessary.
The already in the samples is just there for emphasis and to show that the speaker is frustrated.It doesn’t serve a purpose in terms of timing or experience. If you take ‘aready’ out of each sentence, the meaning will remain, but the tone/mood will change.
Does this help?
Thank you Teacher it really is of great help
Thank you for you nice lectures
Tanks Adam for this useful lesson
hi Japir , where are you from in Sudan ? .
Do you know a really good web site for preparing exams? I’m used to visit “Duolingo” but I have to admit its level is low. What do you recommend?
I love your web site! Thank you very much and good luck!
Have you done a google search for your particular test? There are lots of sites online. Which test will you be taking?
Hi Ms Adam
I am so worried of IELTS ,because I started to study English seriously From the beginning 4 months ago then I want to do IELTS in 4 months
Now I am studying at home what must I do ?
either complete newheadway books or start preparation for IELTS?
It depends on your level. You should try doing an IELTS practice test and see how you score. If you are below 5, you should work some more on your English. If you are 5 or higher, you can work on the test.
I am sorry
Mr I have written (ms)
no worries ;)
Thanks Adam, interesting and useful ideas
Thanks so much Adam, your illustration is really helpful

hi. thanks a lot. 10/10.
I am learning English.I am gonging to develop speaking skill.could someone help me?
Thank You Mr Adam
there is any good source of ielts exams examples?
Hi Sabdooo. The best suggestion I can make is to Google “IELTS Practice” and see what sites come up.
You can also try ielts.org
Fantastic lesson as usual! I appreciate it a lot. Although I am not going to do the IELTS (I will neither immigrate nor study abroad), anyway your tips and advice are helpful for most of the tests we do in or everyday life.
It is also good to listen a native speaker speaking a little bit fast, so as to get used to it.
I am looking for some foreign partner to practise English on Skype. If there is someone here interesting, please let me know.
Thank you, Adam. I’m beginner. I have more disavantage study IELTS :)
It just takes time and practice Cmint7 :) You’ll get there.
thank you my teacher adam
thank u teacher adem
Thank you for good advice.
Thanks Everyone :P)
can u please overview this:
The provided line graph provides the information of fish, lamb, beef and chicken used to eat in a Europe from 1970 to 2004. Here solid line shows the fish use by European people on the other hand dotted lines show the other available meats in grams per person per week.
In general, it illustrates the comparison between the use of fish and other meats.
As is observed from the graph, fish consumption in Europe did not change too much in these years. However, most interesting consumption was beef. In 1979, beef consumption was around 225 grams having few fluctuations. Beef value kept decreasing till 2004 and it is expected beef use will go down further.
On the contrary, as it can see the graph, chicken and lamb had an inverse relation. Both had about 150 grams consumption in 1979 but after that chicken had an increasing trend and reverse was true for lamb.
In addition, from 1979 to 2004, the chicken was the only meat whose consumption increased by about 100 grams while other meats consumption decreased. However, in these years fish consumption remained almost unchanged.
I’m afraid I can’t really go over samples here, but I will suggest you try to do a self-edit and find the grammar mistakes in it. Go sentence by sentence and identify your independent clause in each and the see if the idea comes through.
Thanks teacher for the tips, all are going to be very useful.
Thanks for your good skills teaching
I am very glad to be in touch with all of you.
I consider passing IELTS Academic version.
