    Hi All,

    I am preparing for IELTS exam, for now i am preparing on writing section. I read all the tips and trice and then took up the Gender essay first one. Wrote the essay and checked to see if all the points got covered,
    but how do i get this essay written by me evaluated by experienced IELTS trainer?

    Is there a place where i can post and get it evaluated?

    Listening 4.5
    Reading 5.5
