James’ Tips

This week we take a look at yet again, the most persistent HK-Chinglish errors that nearly all of the HK students are making in the IELTS exam. Although there are many mistakes in the following essay, all of which have been corrected, this analysis will focus on the most critical errors, or headshots, that even one of which will derail a 7.0 attempt.

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, consistently still getting a 6.5. Can you spot the mistakes:

📌 Comments

☑️ 1. stronger paraphrase
☑️ 2. more LR (lexical resource)
☑️ 3. spelling errors
☑️ 4. some solecism
☑️ 5. more range
☑️ 6. singular plural incoherence, a fatal and careless mistake

Notwithstanding the candidate demonstrates above average lexical resource with some sophisticated complex sentence structures, adequate usage of discourse markers and clear progression of ideas, some careless and fatal mistakes are also made, including single plural incoherence, overuse of simple words, some broken sentences, lack of coherence or development of introduced Task Achievement topics, wrong use of pronouns mistakenly used as conjunctions which they are not, ultimately rendering the attempt a reasonably strong 6.5 but no cigar and no champagne.

// James’ Tips //

This week we take a look at a more typical example of Hong Kong’s level of English which in fact is already considerably above the mean or local standard.

This essay was written by a HK working professional currently targeting a 7.0, which is rather superfluous to mention really, considering EVERYBODY is targeting all 7.0.

📌 Comments:

🔖 REASONABLE RANGE; INCOHERENCE OF PLURALITY; SOUND UNITY; COGENT ARGUMENTS

🔎 Task Achievement check.

🔎 Coherence and Cohesion check.

🔎 Grammatical range suspect and faulty.

🔎 Grammatical accuracy rather atrocious.

🔎 Lexical Resource displays some flexibility albeit jinxed.
Some words very accurate, others not.

🔎 Linking and signposting could be better.

💡 Generally, range is conspicuously lacking notwithstanding some choice lexis, which coupled with the preponderance of incoherence ultimately renders this a rather average performance of 6.0 even though in fact its lexical display is somewhat above average, say strong 6.5 or even 7.0

🎄 // James’ Tips //

This week we take a look at a rather strong essay that is attempting a 7.0 which yet unfortunately persists in making one of the most common mistakes so many Hong Kong students are making that derails the attempt.

Can you spot the fatal error?

📌 Comments:

🔖 GENERAL GOOD EXAMPLE OF RANGE WITH UNFORTUNATELY TOO MANY INSTANCES OF SINGULAR PLURAL INCOHERENCE

Task Achievement sound.
Coherence and Cohesion adequate.
Grammatical range extensive. More has been supplemented, see suggestions.
Grammatical accuracy suspect.
Lexical resource displays some flexibility albeit with minor inconsistencies (admittedly, deserved).
Spelling is an issue; singular plural coherence issues persist; one sentence forgot a verb, a serious penalty.
Overall this is very near a 7.0; however, singular plural incoherence is a headshot rendering this most likely to be a 6.5 leaning slightly towards a 7.0 but not quite cigar.

📘 James’ Tips

“How can I get a high band (7.0) in IELTS?”, many students ask.

While there are four skills that are assessed, ask anyone who has taken the exam and you will learn that invariably, the most difficult skill assessed is, yes, writing. There are many techniques necessary to achieve this which would be outside the scope of a quick tip, yet as you know, a good start is not only have the task but is also absolutely vital, to giving the examiner a good first impression.

In India, 15 IELTS test-takers caught for cheating��

In India, 15 IELTS test-takers caught for cheating��

College students fraudulently posing as candidates for a written examination of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) at Amritsar, India last week have been handed over to the police.�

IELTS is a highly pressured exam. Candidates take the Reading (1 hour), Writing (1 hour) and Listening (40 minutes) papers in 1 morning, and then the Speaking in the afternoon. For many candidates, this is a tiring and stressful experience, especially as 7.0 requires test-takers to meet highly specific criteria they may not be aware of.
