Happy New Year 2014!

Dear readers! This is Simone Braverman, happy to welcome you on the last day of 2013, here on I would be very surprised if many people visited our website on New Year’s Eve. Surely you have friends and family to celebrate everything you achieved in 2013 and to share your hopes for 2014.

I don’t want to keep you from the table full of delicious food and from watching the fireworks, so instead of my usual long speech I’ll just say this…

Happy New Year 2014!2013 was an amazing year for me, and for This website yet again broke all records receiving over 4 million visits and getting over 13.7 million pages downloaded. Our Facebook page grew from 12,000 fans to over 50,000 and counting!

For me personally the biggest achievement of 2013 was publishing a new book “IELTS Success Formula” together with Stephen Slater. It took years of research and hard work, but finally it’s out! We are very excited because it will enable more people to pass their IELTS exams with scores of Band 8 and up!

I truly am grateful to everyone who contributed to IELTS-Blog in 2013, to all the visitors who came here searching for the latest IELTS updates, to all the teachers who used this website and recommended it to their students, to everyone who referred their friends here to get help with IELTS, to people who sent their feedback and helped us to improve. Your support means more than I can put into words.

I love you all, and hope you have a wonderful 2014!
