(Essay contest!) You have 1 week to submit your essay to my contest!

Let’s get writing!

This week, I am running an essay competition that IELTS students around the world can enter.  It is completely free of charge to participate.

I am hoping this contest will turn into a helpful lesson for everyone.  I am going to analyze the most and least effective essays I receive in an upcoming video that I will post to this blog next week (I won’t share the names or personal details of the entrants).

To enter the contest, all you have to do is write an IELTS essay in response to the following essay question:

Someday paper money and coins will be replaced by credit cards and online methods of monetary exchange.

Do you agree or disagree?

Send your response to my email (ryanthiggins@gmail.com).  Please write ‘IELTS essay contest’ as the subject of your email.

You have until 11:59 pm on Wednesday the 23rd of November to submit your essay to me.

Looking forward to reading your response!

    Hi Ryan,
    am swetha need to do my ielts again because i only got 6.5 in reading,i need 7 in each section.I have a question today, can i use volatile trend instead of unchanging.I came across this word in your task 1 material.When i looked at the meaning for volatile it says unstable or unchangeable.Am stuck here unstable and unchangeable has different meanings?????

    • Ryan says:

      Hi Swetha,

      I’m not sure where you could have seen ‘volatile’ meaning ‘steady’. It is a word used to describe changeable or inconsistent.

      Good luck,
