Sample Answer to real IELTS Task 1, June 29th, 2019

Just a little while ago (on Saturday June 29th), the following Task-One Question appeared in the real IELTS test. This is a bar chart, but the design is unusual, and there is not a lot of information given (which might make this difficult for some). Also, there is no change over time (COT), and the trends are not that clear.  So, a difficult one, but we can just follow the system given in my Writing Task One book. But before I give a sample answer, can I just put this reminder.   …

The ‘Roll in, Roll Out’ IELTS Course’ [TTWOF] (1 of 2)

Concision Rides Again (12 of 12): An Entire Essay // Remember, IELTS Speaking Seminar scheduled for this Thursday, 2.30 pm

First Part Concision Rides Again (12 of 12): An Entire Essay Good writing, remember, is concise, like the mathematic equation above: E = mc2. Beautiful precision, clarity, and concision. Think about that in this final post, where I will give an entire essay, of 304 words. The student writes fairly well, and with honesty – which is good – although I have corrected the grammar, wrong words, and logic errors. The message is clear; however, there is very much over-wording, repetition, and irrelevance in the content.  …

Concision Rides Again (10 of 12)

Concision Rides Again (10 of 12) No one wants an IELTS 5, right? Let’s look at the original paragraph from the previous post.   Another cause of the losing of culture of aboriginal groups is that the youth of these native aboriginals usually do not understand the importance of protecting their unique and traditional customs. These days, most aboriginal children need to go to the city to get an education, and most of them stay and do not go back to their hometowns after they graduate from university. As a result, they usually lose the opportunity to undertstand the history of their culture. [79 words] …
