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.

🔖 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 lesson is on the necessity of avoiding fatal mistakes.

The following question and sample was submitted by a candidate who works in IT and needs all band 8.0. Therefore, the feedback given to this candidate who is taking only private lessons, is much more targeted and is needless to say, quite different from the feedback given to a student who would be targeting a 6.0, 6.5, or even a 7.0.

8.0 is the cream of the crop.
The candidate’s performance could have been an easy 7.5 except they made 2 fatal mistakes, which immediately would have made it as low as a 6.5 or even a 6.0. This inaccuracy was augmented with considerable complexity of sentence structure that was somewhat mitigating. Very common mistakes that virtually all of the candidates in Hong Kong make.

What fatal mistakes?
***********************
➡Topic Question:
Some people think that a sense of competition in children should be encouraged. Others believe that children who are taught to co-operate rather than compete become more useful adults.
Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.
***********************

✅❎James’ comment on the student’s work:
It is not helpful to open the essay with a simple sentence.
The introduction makes a damning mistake, and the result is thus sealed.
Better sign posting or linking has been supplemented which was lacking.
The conclusion has improved upon past performances yet still uses rather common complex sentences.
An alternative that leaves no doubt as to the caliber and band has been suggested for reference.
***************************
Would you like to try?
Submit your task today for assessment. Must be submitted before the end of the day’s business hours.

James’ Tips

Today’s tip is on the importance of clear paragraphing.

The following example is by a typical Hong Kong DSE student who is targeting a 6.5 and has at the moment only a 5.0 approximately skill level.

❓ Question:

Many parents feel that competition should be encouraged among children. Others believe that other skills or qualities are more advantageous.

Discuss both these views and provide your own opinion.

📌 Comments:
Parsing issues, ie, patient (adj.) or patience (n.)
Syntax and grammar issues.
Absence of linkers.
The essay is 1 giant block with no clear paragraphing.
The grammar has been corrected and linkers provided.

A better flow and progression of ideas, using only the same ideas in the essay, would have been:

💢 💢 Introduction 💢 💢
Paraphrase the topic; give a clear thesis statement.
️🎉 Body 1:
The benefits and drawbacks of competition.

️🎉Body 2:
Cooperation as a superior alternative.

Conclusion:
Reiterate why competition is not desired and why cooperation is a superior alternative.

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.

☑️ 1. tense issues

☑️ 3. 3rd person singular
☑️ 4. passive versus active voice
☑️ 5. punctuation
☑️ 6. range; a range of complex sentence structures
☑️ 7. linkers
☑️ 8. appropriate lexical register
☑️ 9. “and” does not qualify as range for anything higher than 6.0
☑️ 10. over use of “on” as HK-Chinglish’s favorite no. 1 preposition, which is NOT a master key.

🔖 只靠 Paper Marking,IELTS Writing不出兩個月就達標了!

在十月分介紹了我們專攻 Writing 的 paper marking 服務。當中也提到很多的學生都非常感興趣,尤其是工作較忙碌的在職人士,他們特別贊同這個改卷的服務。同時也分享了一個學生她正正就是需要Writing的指導,她其他的 papers 都已經考得相當不錯,已在 Reading / Listening 同 Speaking 都達到8.5的分數,唯獨 Writing 又是上不到 7.0。

👍 繼上次十月的分享,學生 👩 Bonnie 她在八月份考得 IELTS 8.5/ 8.5/ 6.5/ 8.5(L/ R/ W/ S) 的成績,然後在九月就已經開始了在 Elite 的 paper marking 服務,很快就報考了十一月的 IELTS test。這裏我們也分享了Bonnie 的成績表,她在短短的時間裏輕輕鬆鬆地達標了!️🎉
