The professor and Mike in section 3 have same voice sound! This is so unfair and confusing. What do you think?
Anyway, thanks for your material

Thank you Sir for your wonderful website. After a couple of weeks I am going to take the IELTS (General) test and for that I solely rely on your website.
I have a question whether the READING section for General and Academic module is the same or it will be different? If different then please send me the GENERAL MODULE READING TESTS MATERIAL.
Thanks you so much!

You can check out the Reading General Test below to get a deeper insight into it:
I also sent some General material via email for you. Please check it 🙂
All the best!
