    Red face Help me decide on a title for a book I've written

    Hi fellas
    I'm trying to choose a nice catchy name(title) for a book on IELTS speaking skill.
    Which do you go for?
    Liven up your IELTS speaking
    Fix up your IELTS speaking
    Garnish your IELTS speaking
    ....
    I'm not a native speaker of English, and the book is about IELTS speaking questions with answers.
    Names such as, IELTS booster, build up, maximizer, etc. Have already been taken.
    So you are kindly asked to suggest any suitable title you can think of.

    Thanks

    I don't like garnish, so use one of the first two.

    The word 'garnish' is not right at all. The words 'liven up' and 'fix up' have quite different meanings, so it's not a simple matter of which one to choose. What is it that you mean to say exactly? What is it that you think the book will help its readers to do?

    Have you written this book yourself?

    Thanks.
    Welcome to the forum.

    There is no need to use a greeting in future posts, nor to thank us before we've done anything. Thank us after we help you, by clicking on the "Thank" button.

    As the others have said, "garnish" doesn't work at all. If you can tell us in what way your book is supposed to help people, we'll be better able to make suggestions.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
