      Hi Jiss
      It’s time I did something more on task 1. I promise to do something later this week – probably Thursday/Friday. I’ll look at two graphs/charts as a few people have asked about that recently.

    Dear Dominic,

    I’m preparing for my IELTS next Saturday and bit confuse of punctuation of sentences. These sentences are taken from one of your article.

    “Another reason is that it is often more effective to help the victims in their own country as it can cause them more stress if they have to move to another country with a different language and strange customs. ”

    When I use punctuation, please tell me whether I’m making errors with the two commas for separating the sentences.It would be grateful if you could provide a guidance.

    “Another reason is that it is often more effective to help the victims in their own country, as it can cause them more stress, if they have to move to another country with a different language and strange customs.
