    I can’t confine your endeavours just into words but with respect, to say lovely and zealous in didactics. One thing I would confirm and require details regarding the grammar. Is grammar has an inevitable role in IELTS (Academic and General) or could be avoidable. If role exists than what features or areas of strength are required to secure 7 plus bands ? Thanks

    • You are asking me if English grammar is part of an English language test? I think the answer is obvious. Google IELTS Band Score Descriptors.
