🎉 James’ Tips ️

This week we take a look at a sample essay that is the quintessential stereotypical archetype of Hong Kong professionals attempting the IELTS exam targeting a 7.0

This sample was written by a HK working professional attempting to get an all 7.0, just like everybody else, and just like everybody else, makes in addition to a few smaller common mistakes, makes the one unforgivable mistake. Can you spot the mistakes:

🔖 Comments

  1. single plural incoherence
    2. reported speech / passive voice
    3. abbreviated colloquialisms
    4. missing prepositions
    5. HK-Chinglish grammar 📌
    6. spelling errors
    7. inability to handle the perfect tense
    8. limited lexical repertoire
    9. inadequate sign posting
    10. missing be verbs
    11. lack of range

In addition to the potpourri of grammatical gaucherie, notwithstanding the introduction paragraph suffices an adequate display of a grammatical range of complex sentence structures albeit the impact is mitigated for being so verbose, the conclusion paragraph is conspicuously salient in that it displays an abject lack of grammatical complexity. Specifically, the candidate errors in mistaking the use of “and; therefore; hence; thus; so” etc, in lieu of complexity proper.

Range or die.
Range or die.
No, really:
Range or die.
