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.

🔖 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!️🎉

點解我哋嘅 「皇牌老師」咁受歡迎 ?

Elite 其實已經有超過十年嘅教學經驗,一直以 IELTS 爲 主。其實我地嘅創辦人 Stephen Van-Linge (澳洲人),他曾是 IELTS 考官。他對 IELTS 考試確實瞭如指掌,Elite嘅導師全都係經過 Stephen 本人親自 interview,師資不但勁,教學經驗更係豐富,專業。

有一點大家可能不太清楚。一個不但學歷高師資好既導師,最重要係懂得如何 「教」 IELTS。

其實老師嘅質素同教學經驗更爲重要,考 IELTS 嘅策略極為關鍵,只要拿捏同掌握得到考試嘅技巧,就能做到無懼考試亦能發揮到最好!

究竟 British Council 同 IDP 報 IELTS 考試,哪一個比較好?

十多年來的經驗,我們真的被學生問過無數次“我應該去哪一間報考試?British Council 好 d 定係 IDP 好 d ?”

其實真的沒分別,無論 test papers / examiners / marking guidelines 都是統一的,詳細可以看看這裏
http://ieltsliz.com/idp-or-bc/

⁉️ 但是……有幾點是需要注意:
✔️ 考試日期
✔️ 考試場地
✔️ 考 Listening paper 是用什麽來播放!

其它的就沒必要 challenge 吧!

🔖 究竟IELTS Appeal真的這麽難嗎?
我哋嘅經驗話你知!

就在上星期提及的“Appeal 成功例子”,我地想分享多些關於IELTS Appeal的經驗。一直以來,我們也聽過部分的學生申請 Appeal,當中有不同的原因:認爲分數不合理,當天的Examiners不夠專業,考試當天身體不適等等的理由。但當中有多少個真的 Appeal 成功呢?

😍 根據我們的經驗,Writing的機會真的很微,因爲它們的評分標準也相當嚴謹,所有的Markers都需要經過training而且IELTS Writing 的評分標準本身分爲4部分 :Task achievement; Coherence and Cohesion; Lexical Resource; Grammatical Range and Accuracy而且每一份卷都需要送回澳洲再重新評審,所以是有一定的難度。反而Speaking的較主觀所以也有Appeal的空間。但在此提提大家,如果真的發現有問題,要儘快通知test centre一旦成績出了才跟進,一般都很難。

在此我們想分享多一點 Elite 從經驗對IELTS教學的方向。其實十多年來,我們都聆聽每一位學生的需要和要求從而去幫助他們。當中有些曾經考過IELTS或是完全沒有經驗,爲了移民也有,爲了升學也有。有些準備的時間比較長但有些會比較急。所以我們會配合學生的條件從而幫他們安排最適合的課程。👍

// James’ Tips //

This week we take a look at a more typical example of Hong Kong’s level of English which in fact is already considerably above the mean or local standard.

This essay was written by a HK working professional currently targeting a 7.0, which is rather superfluous to mention really, considering EVERYBODY is targeting all 7.0.

📌 Comments:

🔖 REASONABLE RANGE; INCOHERENCE OF PLURALITY; SOUND UNITY; COGENT ARGUMENTS

🔎 Task Achievement check.

🔎 Coherence and Cohesion check.

🔎 Grammatical range suspect and faulty.

🔎 Grammatical accuracy rather atrocious.

🔎 Lexical Resource displays some flexibility albeit jinxed.
Some words very accurate, others not.

🔎 Linking and signposting could be better.

💡 Generally, range is conspicuously lacking notwithstanding some choice lexis, which coupled with the preponderance of incoherence ultimately renders this a rather average performance of 6.0 even though in fact its lexical display is somewhat above average, say strong 6.5 or even 7.0

🎄 // James’ Tips //

This week we take a look at a rather strong essay that is attempting a 7.0 which yet unfortunately persists in making one of the most common mistakes so many Hong Kong students are making that derails the attempt.

Can you spot the fatal error?

📌 Comments:

🔖 GENERAL GOOD EXAMPLE OF RANGE WITH UNFORTUNATELY TOO MANY INSTANCES OF SINGULAR PLURAL INCOHERENCE

Task Achievement sound.
Coherence and Cohesion adequate.
Grammatical range extensive. More has been supplemented, see suggestions.
Grammatical accuracy suspect.
Lexical resource displays some flexibility albeit with minor inconsistencies (admittedly, deserved).
Spelling is an issue; singular plural coherence issues persist; one sentence forgot a verb, a serious penalty.
Overall this is very near a 7.0; however, singular plural incoherence is a headshot rendering this most likely to be a 6.5 leaning slightly towards a 7.0 but not quite cigar.
