📘 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

This week we have a look at probably the singular most common mistake in HK-Chinglish that basically all of the candidates who fall below a 7.0 invariably make.
The following essay was written by a working HK professional in the IT industry who is currently targeting a 7.0 yet consistently achieves only a band 6.0.
Observe.
***********************
📝📝<<Student sample (as shown)>>
***********************
✅❎James’ comment on the student’s work:
The most common mistake the candidate, like so many others, repeatedly makes, is incoherence due to confusing the singularity or plurality of subject verb, indicated repeatedly in the essay by an S unequal to a P for singular and plural dissonance.

Next the candidate makes parsing errors, confusing verbs with nouns and in the process likewise confusing prepositions, all now corrected.

Spelling errors are not tolerated at the 7.0 band level.

Lexical Resource is somewhat limited and while not an absolute disqualification, nonetheless the candidate could benefit by improving the lexical arsenal.

Some very serious errors of solecism, or flat out broken sentences, are noted, and corrected, indicating the candidate’s gaucherie or inability at handling more complex sentence structures.

While some complex sentences are evident, many of these are arbitrary and inept clearly evidence of the candidate’s attempt at complex sentences merely for the sake of it without clear understanding of the nuance and syntax of the English language.

Finally, some third person singular conjugation errors are noted.

A single instance of singular plural incoherence, or third person singular error, or parsing error, will immediately lower an otherwise acceptable 7.0 down to a 6.0 and
only IF the candidate has a preponderance of watertight complex sentences will it then be upgraded to a 6.5, but in any case, all singular plural incoherence, third person singular, parsing, or use of infinitives instead of proper conjugation and participle, as well as indefinite article singular usage versus plural, are game over headshots as far as a 7.0 is concerned.

This essay is consistent with a 6.0, despite the presence of a modicum of complex sentences, which are the only saving grace that did not render the essay a 5.5.

<< Grammar: Capitalisation & Punctuations >>

<<Grammar: Capitalisation & Punctuations>>

Language makes it possible for us to communicate effectively but poor grammar can completely lose everything you are trying to say. Capitalization and marks of punctuation are one of the most important aspects of written English, but it’s often taken lightly.

This feature of writing not only gives meaning to the written words, it indicates pauses and changes in tones of the voice when speaking. A mistake in punctuation can express a completely different meaning to the one that is intended.

The most common punctuation marks in English: CAPITAL letters and full stops, questions marks, commas, colons and semicolons, exclamation marks and quotation marks.

This week we will take a look at a very typical example of a reasonably proficient second language English speaker who is also a Hong Kong working professional.
The candidate is targeting an 8.0 yet due to making some of the most common ‘HK-Eng’ mistakes, is therefore only a the global average for females level of 6.0 in writing.
Can you spot the most damaging mistake?
***********************
📝📝<<Student sample (as shown)>>
***********************
✅❎James’ comment on the student’s work:
The candidate’s task achievement, and coherence and cohesion, are sound.
A conspicuous lack of complex sentence structures is decisive in lowering the mark, which coupled with a patent lack of more sophisticated lexical items, results in the band’s foregone conclusion.
However, the worst and most common mistake the candidate has made, is the repeated incoherence of singular and plural conjugation between subject verb and object. This is even more damaging to the spelling errors, lack of sign posting through the use of discourse markers, inept use of prepositions, or unnatural and inappropriate lexical choices.

This week we take a look at a Writing Task 1 written by a Hong Kong working professional who is targeting a 7.0 yet unfortunately makes an all too common mistake. Can you spot this fatal mistake?
Have a look at the attachment before reading the comments below:
***********************
📝📝<<Student sample (as shown)>>
***********************
✅❎James’ comment on the student’s work:
Task Achievement adequate. Coherence and cohesion check.
Grammatical range conspicuously lacking.
“…and…” does NOT constitute a demonstration of a range of complex and sophisticated sentence structures, a red flag, used no less than 5 times; use in conjunction with, in tandem with, coupled with, not to mention, in addition to, as well as, etc, instead.
Grammatical accuracy is reasonably good.
There is at least one instance of solecism, or a broken illegible sentence, now corrected with proper complexity of range.
Some linking is used but could be improved. See amendments.
Some tense issues cause coherence issues.
