  1. Thank you for so many useful tips and for a checklist, of course. I will share and attach the article on my wall, especially that my students have problems with creation cohesive and grammatically correct sentences. Without a doubt, contemporary teachers need to solve problems of so-called text or digital generation. 🙂

  2. Hello
    i am a doctor working in Ireland keen to take Plab exam for registration with GMC.
    i attempted ielts three times previously but couldn’t get required band in writing, although i got excellent score in the rest of three components.
    So 7 is the minimum in all components i would need ,and in all the previous attempts i didnt manage to get more than 6.5 in writing.
