Thanks to Ann from Canada I can post these topics from a recent Academic IELTS exam. Good job, Ann, thanks for caring – your help is most appreciated!

We had a line graph about the number of inquiries received by tourist receptionist (by phone, by email/mail and in person) from January to June 2004.

Update from a General IELTS exam, held in Spain

Do you remember this beautiful tradition we used to have, when you shared your IELTS experiences with me and I made sure they are available for many other students just like you?

I’d like to invite you all once again – let’s keep doing that, because people write and tell me it’s really helping them. Take some time to put together a quick email , let me know what country you’re from – I’ll take care of all the rest.

And now to the latest news – we have an update from Spain (thanks, Gino).

Reading test

Reading included 10 advertisements and the questions were about which ad says they want the user to provide transport, which ad says a user can get a better bargain, so you have to read carefully, because some of the adds had the same ad as answer (or at least I thought that way, don’t know whether I was right till the result comes).

Writing test

Writing Task 1 (a letter)

Write a letter to a neighbor about the garbage problem that you have. In your letter

  • Introduce yourself
  • Explain the problem
  • Provide appropriate solution
  • Writing Task 2 (an essay)

    Small shops in towns and villages are closing and are being replaced by big stores. Do you think it is a good or a bad trend? Explain your opinion.

    Speaking

    They asked about my school, what I did on last weekend, and then went to ask about jobs in shifts, advantages & disadvantages.

    Well I messed up a little bit as I got a bit nervous. I suggest to everyone to stay in a relaxed mood.
