📘 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.

📚 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🔑】
***********************
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.

<<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 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.

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!

我們這位學生是一位上班族💼,平時都非常之忙,沒太多的時間可以上課⏳。但要移民的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👥,放工後就過來。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!
