    I found this site to be an excellent practice site.
    I have my university students to practice reading the examples aloud so they are
    both hearing and speaking correctly. They love it. I teach in Korea.

    I just wanted to share with everyone what I did to get a 7 on the IELTS test. I found this Canadian site that offers live prep for people studying the IELTS. They were great – my first score was a 5 and I was seriously discouraged about not being able to get that 7 that I needed – but after about a month of intensive practice with TalktoCanada my IELTS mark went way up.

    If anyone is having problems with getting a 7 – I recommend talking with TalktoCanada – the live help really helped me see where I was having problems and what I could do to improve it. Plus they are Canadian!
