學生 Melody 經過 James 一個課程既教導後,由之前IELTS屢次失敗,最終達到全7既成績去移民

全職媽媽既 Melody 她爲了兩個小朋友決定移民到澳洲。IELTS 她需要每份 paper 最少達到7分既水平(全7)。其實她之前也考過亦清楚知道自己最大既問題就係Writing所以當她黎到我地 centre 時已經好清楚想瞭解如何提升Writing。

我們建議她可以上16堂既課程,畢竟她 Writing 比較弱。當時她有好多顧慮因爲家裏有兩個小朋友需要照顧,好難抽身。所以最終她決定自己再嘗試多一次但最後都需要回來求助。

她一黎到就立刻報名,連 timetable 都印定出黎,highlight好所有既堂。不出一個月完成16堂就馬上報考IELTS,雖然一次未能考到理想分數但也有明顯進步,再接再厲既她再補多幾堂,第二次也不負所望,成功通過更開心既係達到她可以同家人小朋友移民既心願!

This week we will be looking at a Task 1, and one of the techniques that students may use to show analytical ability as well as ensure they have enough word count, which is fatal otherwise.
This essay was written by a HK DSE student targeting a 7.0, however, due to the preponderance of syntax errors, is at the moment still around a 6.0 bank.
.
✅❎ James’ comment on the student’s work:
Third person singular errors, as highlighted in the essay, are damning around a 6.0
The candidate demonstrates some ability with a range of complex sentence structures, yet some gaucherie as well, thus nullifying somewhat the effect.
Spelling errors are not permitted at 7.0
Candidate makes the mistake of using HK’s favorite incorrect preposition “on”, corrected in the essay based on context.

✏ Singular plural incoherence is decisive in a 6.0 band, and no higher than 6.5 if there are few errors, which this essay is not the case.

Finally, in the conclusion, the candidate attempts to interpret the data, which, though not necessary, does present an opportunity to demonstrate skill and analytical ability if done so skillfully within the parameters of the topic. It is generally frowned upon to attempt to interpret the data which minimally requires that one report, not interpret, it.

However, there is something to be said of, nothing ventured, nothing gained, and what better way to stand out from the candidate pool than by astutely demonstrating incisive clarity, within reason. The key is to say, “the data suggests” rather than “I guess”, with the caveat of the limitations of the data. This candidate has done so, as appended.

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.

This week we take a look at a sample essay that is a mishmash of positives and negatives.

This sample was written by a HK working professional attempting to get an all 7.0, just like everybody else. Can you spot the mistakes:

📝 Comments

  1. single plural incoherence
    2. Hong Kong English awkward lexical choices
    3. Hong Kong Chinglish grammar, ie, Chinese grammar calqued to English
    4. parsing, parts of speech incoherent
    5. determiners
    6. numerous spelling errors

📘 Introduction has no thesis statement, a common mistake.
Considerable use of complex sentences coupled with discourse markers a decided plus;
Generally, the preponderance of persistent errors lowers the mark to no cigar.

️This week we take a look at a very typical mistake far too many students attempting the exam in Hong Kong routinely make.

This sample was written by a HK working professional attempting to get an all 7.0, just like everybody else. Can you spot the mistakes:

🔖 Comments

  1. single plural incoherence
    2. determiners
    3. made up vocabulary
    4. spelling errors
    5. a critical lack of a range of complex sentence structures

📌 Observe, the Introduction, and Conclusion, the two most important parts of the essay, in the former, have only 2 complex conjunctions, adequately used, but not quite a 7.0, while the latter, has none.

Range or die.

James’ Tips

This week we take a look at a reasonably strong candidate who very nearly got a 7.0 in this Task 2 essay but made a very few, serious mistakes which very quickly foil the attempt.

This sample was written by a DSE student attempting to get an all 7.0, just like everybody else. Can you spot the critical mistakes:

📌 Comments

  1. single plural incoherence
    2. parsing, parts of speech incoherent
    3. some tense issues
    4. solecism, some complex sentences are broken
    5. No conclusion

📘 This essay has extensive use of complex sentences, linkers or sign post language as well as flexible descriptive lexis, however, the candidate begins to run out of time in the end, and suddenly starts making more mistakes, not using enough linkers, and ultimately runs out of time and omits the most important part of the essay, the conclusion. This is a classic case of a student who actually has a 7.0 level ability on a perfect performance, but due to poor time management, a problem some 80% of students suffer from, made just enough errors to lower the result.

Time is key.

No one kills time; Time kills every body.

James’ Tips

This week we are delighted to ablate yet another instance of incorrigible HK-English, victim courtesy of the HK DSE education system.
The following essay was produced by a HK working professional targeting a 7.0 for immigration yet consistently hovering at best at 6.0. He has made the most common HK-English mistake with regards to prepositions, using the one “skeleton key” or master key preposition that HK second language speakers is a panacea for all
situations. It is not.

Do you know which preposition is the most commonly mistakenly used in HK?

It has been circled, 7 times in the essay.

✴️ = = = ✴️

✅❎James’ comment on the student’s work:
In addition to the aforementioned preposition error, the candidate makes a number of mistakes, parsing issues, confusing adverbs and adjectives, nouns and verbs, missing verbs, singular and plural incoherence or dissonance, absence of sign posting and discourse markers, inability to use auxiliary verbs correctly, starting sentences with “But” or “Yet”, gaucherie with the passive voice, and more subtle yet omnipresent, erroneous use of the present progressive tense in lieu of the present simple. Why do HK English second language speakers do this? Ask the DSE ‘teachers’.

This week we will look at an all too common HK-English mistake, that countless upon countless students are still making, courtesy of the unqualified and fraudulent
teachers that the HK government bureau of education endorses in the DSE system.

This sample, and we are specifically looking at the 釜conclusion paragraph, arguably the most important paragraph in the essay, was written by a working professional who like most Hong Kongers, imagines themselves to have near native proficiency or 7.0, yet are duly humbled when they see the reality after numerous attempts at the exam, and find they have only a 6.0, the global average for second language speakers.

Period, full stop.

James’ Tips

This week we will be looking at a case study in Hong Kong English as opposed to proper English, revealing some of the many common mistakes that Hong Kong’s students are
unwittingly prone to.

The following sample was written by a Hong Kong working professional targeting a 7.0 for immigration purposes, yet due to many Hong Kong-English mistakes, remains at the
global average, 6.0
***********************
📝📝<<Student sample (as shown)>>
***********************
✅❎James’ comment on the student’s work:
His mistakes include, spelling, passive voice, parsing, third person singular errors, lack of appropriate prepositions, and most importantly, singular versus plural dissonance or
incoherence of subject verb conjugation, which is probably the number 1 most common HK-English mistake that students make landing them in the 6.0 band.
