Instant IELTS ‘experts’ have been regularly emerging, and there are established 'experts' playing all sorts of tricks. You, the student, need to be an intelligent consumer. You could easily waste a lot of time and money, and send your IELTS mark downwards. In this post, I’ll look at the …

The last two posts about Morocco show both the good and bad (or rather, the bad and the good). Yes, there is good, and we hope we can encounter it. But there is bad, also. This links to IELTS Preparation in this country. Let us look at what I wrote in the first Moroccan entry.

Continuing with my account about Morocco, I had some bad experiences in the north, so I fled down south, to a quieter town called Taghazout. There I spent three weeks studying French, to help me travel through Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia. Eventually, I decided to ‘hit the road’ again, but I could see the Atlas Mountains on the skyline. The Atlas Mountains are a series of three parallel mountain ranges that run through Morocco, and make this country a rather more interesting place than the flat ‘Saharan’ countries further inland or along the North Africa coast. So, I decided to take a bus up to a small village in these mountains [see the above picture]. I had a bad experience even getting onto the bus, with another hustler extorting money from me. Then I sat on the bus, and eventually relaxed a bit as it wound up the picturesque road into the mountains.

Continuing with my account about Morocco, I have to say that I had very mixed feelings about the country, and would be hesitant to recommend it to travelers. The issue results from when a poor country has decades of heavy tourism. That country eventually starts to depend on that tourism, and this can change the nature of many of the people. It can even corrupt them altogether, and this is the problem I had in Morocco. The average European traveler to Morocco is far richer than the average Moroccan, and every one in Morocco knows this.

Writing %26; Listening (night), Term 1, 2017.JPG

Well, everyone, another AIS Writing & Listening Course finished (last Friday), and that is the end of AIS Term 1. That means Term 2 begins on Monday (20th), with the next IELTS Writing & Listening Course (running every MWF). This is always popular, so there is the afternoon (2 - 5.15 pm) and the night-time (6.45 - 10.00 pm) course.

Yes, look at the picture, and try to guess where I am. Well, I guess the title of the book (and this is the cover page) gives away everything. Yes, I have led quite an interesting life, and the book is a travelogue about my travels across North Africa (right through the Sahara desert, right in the era of the first Gulf War, when no one (who was sane) ventured into that part of the world. It was a bit rough, more than a bit dangerous, but I got through it – just. And I even wrote this book about it.

Well, before giving more IELTS advice, I'll get a bit more personal today, showing a photo of a class which has just ended. This is the IELTS Winter Intensive Class, which finished last Friday. One of the students is not there. Amy has returned to Australia, and let's hope she has a great time there.

台灣坊間的補習班小從國小, 大到留學補習班幾乎大部分的老師都喜歡用考古題來 "教學" ,這當然也包括了大部分的雅思補習班和雅思家教老師,基本上這些老師寫作部分就是要同學背誦別人的寫作範例,口說就是背誦考古題的答案,以Andrew老師超過24年的雅思教學經驗,他說同學不管在哪一種科目用這樣的方式 "學習" 都無法提升自己的程度, 尤其是語言學習。

Here we go again, with collocation - the key to getting IELTS 7, remember. Try to improve the collocation (or logic) by changing the words in red. Remember, there can sometimes be different answers to this.

Okay, after the 'pigeon' interlude, we'll continue practising with collocation. Remember, (better) collocation is mentioned in the public version of the IELTS Band Descriptors in Band Score 7 and 8. This is important.

   Here we go again, continuing with the collocation. Collocation, or more specifically, bad collocation, is one reason people cannot achieve IELTS 7 or 8. It's certainly something to work on, and here is the next set of sentences for you to look at.
