    New questions. Need help!!

    Sir, I'm preparing for the Ielts test in 20 days. The most puzzled thing to me is the speaking part and the writing part. Though I can do well in the other two parts--Reading & Listening, I'm always so upset with Speaking & Writing.

    As you know, Ielts test is of the most importance in applying for the MA in UK. More and more students in China have to take it. Thanks for the Chinese traditional education system, we're not so good in Speaking & Writing as Reading & Listening. And Ielts is so different from Toefl and Gre test. It's new to me. When I was preparing, I felt that it seemed to me there was no way to get a good band.

    I'll appreciate any help I can get here. Thanks a lot.

    The adjective is puzzling. Thus, it should be: "The most puzzling thing to me...." Also, say: "Thanks to the traditional Chinese educational system...."
