📘 James’ Tips

This week we take a look at a student who has already achieved a 7.0 but is struggling to raise performance higher to an 8.0, having not yet grasped and incorporated the necessary standard.

Comments:

🔖 LACK OF DETERMINERS, SINGULAR OR PLURAL AWARENESS, AND THE IMPORTANCE OF SOPHISTICATED LEXICAL ITEMS.

📌 Task Achievement check.

💡Coherence and cohesion sound.

Grammatical accuracy reasonable yet with some hiccups.
Grammatical range evident, though more is always better.
Lexical resource seems a bit lagging in effort or flexibility particularly initially albeit this is somewhat mitigated towards the end yet gives the impression of too little, too late.
Some fatal errors regarding the lack of awareness with the indefinite article, or determiners, singular or plural, see corrections.

📚 Too many small mistakes regarding singular or plural, indicating a lack of mature native grammatical awareness, coupled with overly simple words such as happiness.

Not only the higher one aims the smaller the margin of error, but also the greater the need to do something flamboyant and dashing, particularly above 7.5, which can be achieved either with winding and accurate complex sentences, precise circumlocution, or lexis that is both colourful as well as accurate: as Mark Twain said, “the difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.”

📌 真實學生 : IELTS Writing 數堂就從 6.5 到 7.5 📈

我地既學生Rex本身英文不錯,他需要全7既成績去移民。每次上堂他都表演得很滿意亦經常當面稱贊James,落堂後他都會很高興地表示 James 幫了他很多,教了他很多!

IELTS 考試最大的困難都莫過於 Writing 同 Speaking, Rex只上了幾堂(5堂左右)私人班(每次一小時)就已經有很明顯的進步!但他想達到全8的成績,所以他會繼續努力, 再嘗試多幾次的課堂,待續…

📘 James’ Tips

This week we take a look at the difference between a 7.0 and an 8.0 as we now have numerous students who need or are not satisfied with a 7.0

📚 The following essay was written by a working Hong Kong mom who already achieved a 7.0 in writing but is determined to rise to an 8.0

Observe the comments:

EMBELLISHMENT.

Solid.
🔖 Just not amazing.

8.0 needs to be amazing. Top 1%.
You demonstrate some lexical flexibility, in tandem with near perfect natural syntax, see suggestions to make it more fluid. There is really only 1 grammatical error, a missing preposition, as well as only one instance of unnatural second language or beginner collocation: see suggestions. Salient complex conjunctions, sign posting linkers, or synonyms and examples of lexical resource, are noted.
🔖 However, not enough grammatical range is demonstrated, a fatal flaw, nor any scintillating lexis.
Good, not great. Close, but no cigar, no champagne.
Your best sentence was “considering that”. More like this will help.

Some suggestions are made to make the essay embellished and more refined as expected of the standard of an 8.0

Eg: “… when I will not only be able to settle the outstanding balance but further would be delighted to continue as your longstanding and grateful tenant.

I thank you in advance for your kind attention and further await your indulgence.
Cordially yours,”
Etc.

📘 James’ Tips

This week we take a look at an example with some strong positives to raise performance and achieve a 7.0, as well as some common mistakes that students too oft make in Hong Kong.

🔖 This essay was produced by a Hong Kong working professional working in one of the hospitals, who is currently targeting a 7.0.

Comments:

📍 THE IMPORTANCE OF A STRONG FINISH.

Task Achievement solid.
Coherence and cohesion ample.
Grammatical range evident yet with one significant error of a broken down sentence or instance of solecism.
Grammatical accuracy evidences persistent errors such as with passive voice, parsing or parts of speech, awkward prepositions, missing subjects, a very damaging error, and missing determiners or indefinite article, as well as overuse of the definite article, a minor error in terms of the detrimental impact on performance.
One hiccup with a complex sentence essentially derailed the attempt, as well as some collocation and parsing issues.
A strong plus, however, in the conclusion paragraph served to raise performance considerably, as the sample demonstrates as advised, a triple example of at least 3 complex conjunctions, and fortunately, with zero mistakes. If the paper had just a few less errors, this would definitely be a reliable 7.0

【 James’ Tips🔑】
***********************
This week we take a glance at a more common essay that so many HK students are struggling with, right at the 6.5 cusp but no cigar.

This is written by a HK working professional currently targeting a 7.0 yet at the moment still hovers between 6.0 and more often 6.5.

Can you spot the reasons why?

***********************
📝📝<<Student sample (as shown)>>
***********************
✅❎James’ comment on the student’s work:
Despite some evidence of complexity of sentence structure, much repetition persists, indicating some inflexibility and limitation of skill level.

Some lexical resource is evident, a plus.

More linkers could be effectively employed in order to raise coherence.

Numerous instances of solecism or broken sentences persist, indicated and remedied by a star with appropriate complex conjunction usage.

Ultimately the candidate makes too many mistakes as well as is too repetitious with sentence structure, in particular, “so that” ad nauseum. This is not only an all too common ‘conjunction’, technically a compound one, but is boring to tears after 5 uses.
Some tense issues, past tense instead of present tense, as well as the all too common HK-Chinglish habit of using present progressive in lieu of present proper.
Try to understand, only the top 5% of candidates world wide, that is 1 person in 20, gets a 7.0. Thus, if you talk like everyone else talks, not to mention make the same mistakes everyone makes, then why do you deserve a 7.0? To distinguish yourself in the eyes of the examiner, you need to employ more sophisticated complexity as well as lexis with few or better yet no errors. Common sentences get, guess what, a common result, and 6.5, is a common result, only a hair better than the global average for females of 6.0.

<< 5 reasons to love Christmas in Australia >>

Christmas movies, books and stories from our childhood have defined much of what we think of as a traditional Christmas. Most of the traditions we know and are familiar with have come from the Northern Hemisphere, where kids play with snow and families feast on turkey, warm puddings and fruitcake. Since Christmas happens during summer in Australia, we embrace the holiday season in blistering heat and get as far as we can get from long-established traditions. Let’s look at some of our favourite summer Christmas experiences.
