James’ Tips

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.

Although, no buts
But, no although.
Period, full stop.

🔖 學生的讚美,加上成績的見証,就是最好的實例 —學生對導師的教學認同,更幫她在考試中大有進步!

我們這位學生平時都非常之忙,沒太多的時間可以上課。但她一定要達到聼講讀寫4個7的成績。她知道 Writing 和Speaking 都不能單靠自己,所以選了一星期一堂的私人班,一有時間就過來。經過幾堂的操練,她嘗試去考試,當然不能一次就立刻達到最理想的成績,但她已經有了明顯的進步!最重要是學生真心認同導師真的幫到她!每次聽到學生拿到他們的成績很滿意既時候,就是我們教育的最大成就!💕

James’ Tips

Today’s tip is on the importance of maintaining coherence in the singularity or plurality of subject verb conjugation, probably the single most common mistake amongst second language English speakers in Hong Kong.
The following sample was written by a candidate whose target is 7.0 but is still getting a 6.0 or 6.5 at best due to these serious mistakes.

***********************
📝📝<<Student sample (as shown)>>
***********************
✅❎James’ comment on the student’s work:
Some range of complex sentence structures is evident
Some lexical resource is evident
Task achievement sound
Coherence and cohesion adequate
Grammatical accuracy generally communicable

📌 However:
Singular plural dissonance
Incorrect third person singular
Which constitute rather serious mistakes being that they are such basic grammar criteria.
Absence of indefinite article
**********
For example:
Children’s life? No. Children’s, plural, lives, plural.
Letting… leads to. (singular, singular)
Allowing… contributes to (singular, singular)
A helper or a grandparent… who does (singular, singular)
Singular or plural subject verb congruence is a basic requirement above 6.5.

🔖 Elite 好消息分享,IELTS Appeal 成功例子!

我地有位同學仔申請 Appeal 成功啦!Bambi 一開始一心打算報幾堂就去考試,很明顯第一次的成績當然不太好。之後發現準備唔夠其後直接再報了最少堂數的課程。雖然他英文不算差但一般都知道IELTS也挺重視技巧,所以對於分數有要求的學生都明白碰運氣是不可靠。

最近他考到很不錯的成績,只是跟他的目標還差一點點。由於 Speaking 只有 6.5 而其它的papers都達標,所以Bambi決定申請 Appeal,最後由 6.5 去到 7,完成了他 All band 7的移民夢。📈

在這裏分享多少少… …Bambi 英文本身不錯所以他只報了最少課堂的課程,後來他心急要考到所以 Elite 針對了他的情況,給他一個最佳建議去安排上課。最後,他花了很短時間只上了 Writing 的小班加幾堂的單對單就考到理想成績。

其實 IELTS 由 6.0 到 7.0 和 6.5 到 7.0 的分別不大,你們知道嗎?個案一分享!

剛在上一篇,我們提及到我們的學生 Winnie 雖然 Writing 還差 0.5 才達標但Reading, Listening達到滿分 9.0 和Speaking7.0 的她。爲何Writing還是一直卡住在 6.5 呢?上次也提到IELTS其實由 6.0 到 7.0 和 6.5 到 7.0 的分別不大,可是大部分他們都認爲 6.5到7.0 只不過是 0.5 之差,所以很多考生通常要達到 7分之前都會徘徊在 6.0 至 6.5分。在這可以分享我們曾經遇到的真實例子。

🔖 個案一:一名考 Academic paper 的學生他需要取得All band 7的成績,考過好幾次就唯獨只差 Writing 0.5的距離。然後他一次過book了一個月的考試,總共 4 次,一星期一次因爲 IELTS Academic 通常每個星期六進行,所以這個學生他相信總有一次會達到 Writing 7.0,最終他那拿著4張成績單發現其它的papers有 0.5 的 up & down 可是Writing完全是沒有變,依然停留在 6.5。但正正就是技巧的問題,最終都是要一定的training才能突破 6.5 的框框。

📘 James’ Tips

This week we take a look at a Task 2 essay that arguably is a 7.0 depending on the examiner’s purview being stringent or lenient, as well as explaining objectively why, so as to increase student’s awareness to avoid making unnecessary mistakes.

Comments:

📚 THE DANGERS OF POOR TIME MANAGEMENT AND MENTAL EXHAUSTION AT THE FINISH

Task Achievement check.
Coherence and cohesion sound.

🔖 Pluses: preponderance of a range of complex sentence structures that are generally error free; some entire paragraphs have not a single error in them, a strong plus. Some lexical flexibility is amply demonstrated by sound paraphrasing. In general, few errors.

📌 Minuses: some over experimentation with lexis resulting in strange, awkward, “google-translate”-esque speak, now amended. Trouble with definite articles, as always. Don’t forget linkers, punctuation, every jot and tittle, ie, dot your iii’s and cross your ttt’s. Some mental exhaustion is apparent at the finish line of the conclusion with some otherwise avoidable mistakes. Some collocation and parsing issues. Don’t forget your singular or plural determiners, such as in the first sentence of the introduction, which ironically is also the most damaging mistake in the essay.😍

On the whole, there seem to be more good than bad things, which may serve to tip the scales, just barely.
Greater consistency in accuracy, would remove all doubt. Lexical flexibility is good, but don’t take an untested weapon to war.
