Pronounciation can and should be improved!

IELTS candidates should be aware that 99% of English language learners need to work on their pronunciation. This pronunciation practice is not something that should be done just before the IELTS exam – it should be started months before!! Poor pronunciation in the IELTS speaking exam might ruin your chances of getting the highest IELTS band score you can.

Also I have been to Rome in which there are a lot of famous monuments and museums.I have visited different places.I have tasted the Roman cuisine and I have gone shopping to the local markets.I have had a very good and relaxing time there.

What are you doing at the weekend?

For this weekend I plan to spend some time outside.On Saturday I am going on an excursion with my friends to Chania.I am spending a lot of time on swimming and sunbathing We are visiting some picturesque villages and we are going to go for a walk at the countryside.
On Sunday I am going to playing football and,after that,I am going fishing.I am relaxing at the end of the day.
These are my plans for this weekend.

What do you do every day?

I ususally wake up at 9 o'clock.My free time is quite enough to do the things or activities I want because I have not been working lately.After waking up, I take a shower and get dressed.Afterwards,I eat breakfast and I surf on the internet.I communicate with friends via social networks,like facebook,check my e-mails or read articles.At about 11 o'clock I go to the gym.When I finish at 1 o'clock I return home and I eat lunch.Usually I watch television after lunch.In the afternoon I sometimes go for a walk,but I usually have some coffee with my friends.Then I return home.The most common thing that I do is to see a movie or go out for a drink.After that,I sleep at 12 o'clock the latest.This is my everyday routine.
