Happy Holidays!

Dear readers,

We’d like to wish you a happy holiday season!

You are a great multicultural crowd, so chances are some of you celebrate Christmas, others Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or Omisoka – and the list goes on.

In this festive season we hope you enjoy the break and take a bit of time off before returning to your studies with all the energy you regained.

We will continue supporting your exam preparation by posting more IELTS materials on IELTS-Blog over the holiday period (except 24,25,31 December 2016 and 1,2 January 2017).

Wishing you the gifts of the season — Peace, Joy, Hope.
