  1. Hi,

    This is such a great idea to have this topic posted in your blog. Apart from any other tips, rules and ideas on IELTS writing, I do agree that spelling is one of the most important. That's why it is certainly important to proofread an essay in order for the writer to check his/her spelling, punctuations and grammatical errors. TheIELTSSolution.com
