Try to impress the examiner with one or two idioms in your Part 1 responses. Do you know any idioms related to family?

Your friends

Remember to use the present simple when you are talking about your routine habits

Your hobbies and interests

Your holidays

Remember to use the present simple when you are speaking about your preferences

Your health + fitness

A good way to express your past habits is by using 'used to' + the infinitive of the verb: I used to play cricket when I was at school

Your cultural activities

Remember to use the 'present perfect' to talk about your life experiences such as what you have done, things you have seen and places you've been to

Your entertainment

Think about a book, a film or a TV show that you can talk about before you have your test

Although I had 6 overall before I started my undergraduate courses, English was still a huge problem for me, especially for writing academic reports/papers. So, I decided to improve my writing with professional help. First three months, results were horrible, approximately 4-5 in the exam terms. Recently, I found my results are good, approximately 6-7. I go through all my feedback which Jenny and Nigel corrected for me, and the toolboxes, which tell me how to construct a proper English eassy. Frankly, I wish I could find this website earlier, I might save hundreds of pounds. My friends who struggle with IELTS, it is absoultely unnecessary to waste money hiring a personal tutor. Using iPass IELTS, genuine English can be provided at any time via Internet. Not only Jenny and Nigel have the real expertise in teaching English, but they are very nice, they are willing to answer you any concern related to IELTS.
