James’ Tips ️

This week we take a look at a Writing Task 2 written by a Hong Kong working professional targeting a 7.0. There are a number of issues in this sample, including a rather subtle but common issue with many HK students. See if you can spot it:

✅❎ James’ comment on the student’s work:

Task achievement check.

Coherence and cohesion adequate.

Examples and arguments sound.

Better paragraphing, or, more careful topic sentence forming, will help. It is not necessary to put examples in a topic sentence, but rather, to articulate the point, followed by in the next sentence, examples, illustrations, analogies, etc. Possibly, since the two examples seemed central, to have them each in their own paragraph, with a paraphrased – not repeated – topic sentence that echoes and supports the thesis.

More effort in paraphrasing will help give a good first impression to the examiner, which of course, requires

some lexical resource.
Spelling is essential at 7.0 and above.
A “time out”, is essentially, temporary prison for children, not exactly time away from the classroom, thus slightly awkward.

Some over use of “and” indicates lack of practice and flexibility with complex sentence structures not withstanding at least one solid instance of a complex sentence.
To make an argument, make an argument; not, maybe, make an argument.
Consider as a conclusion closing sentence, rather than “could, should, may, might”:

Demanding that children grow in knowledge and creativity while pigeonholing them is both an antithetical oxymoron, and worse, cruel and inhumane.

📚 你需要考哪一種雅思 IELTS?

雅思分為學術類(General Training 以下簡稱 G類)和培訓類(Academic 以下簡稱A類)兩種。那麼辦理那種到底要考那種簽證呢?

🇦🇺 澳洲移民局要求:申請移民需要考G類雅思。如果你是通過工程、IT等專業做獨立技術移民的話就可以考 G 類雅思4 個 7 分或者 4 個 6 分。

🙋 那就會有很多學生會問:為什麼會計的學生申請獨立技術移民就需要考 A 類雅思4個7分呢?

在這裡解釋一下:🖍 會計學生之所以需要考A類雅思4個7分,並不是移民局的要求。而是會計職業評估機構CPA在做會計職業評估時需要雅思A類4個7分。

還有的學生會問:如果考A類雅思可不可以用來申請移民?答案是可以!A類雅思用於G類雅思用途,但是反過來G類雅思不可以用於A類雅思的用途。

而留學簽證則需要A類雅思。因為留學屬於培訓範圍,就必須要考培訓類雅思。根據現在的留學要求,學生只要考到A類雅思5分就可以拿到學生簽證。之後在根據課程的具體要求在加語言課程。比如學生報讀的是專科文憑課程(Diploma),簽證需要5.5分。

綜上所述,凡是跟學習和學歷有關的,都需要考A類雅思。跟移民局要求有關的,就可以選擇A類或者G類雅思。

🎉 James’ Tips ️

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 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.

💑 真 實 學 生

💞 夫婦的 IELTS 成績正正見證了他們的努力

最近有對夫婦爲了移民去加拿大,需要拿到一定的分數。他們夫妻一齊上堂再一齊溫習,經過不到兩個月的training 他們已經比在第一次做評估時的程度有著明顯的進步。最初他們只是 IELTS 5.5 的水平。

👍 最近的成績
.
6.5 / 7.5 / 6 / 6 (L / R / W / S)
.
就看到他們的努力沒白費。現在他們會以這次IELTS成績先通過第一輪的移民的 Skill Assessment 然後會繼續努力上堂,達到目標!

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.
