🎉 James’ Tips

This week we take a look at a sample essay that is a mishmash of positives and negatives.

This sample was written by a HK working professional attempting to get an all 7.0, just like everybody else. Can you spot the mistakes:

📝 Comments

  1. single plural incoherence
    2. Hong Kong English awkward lexical choices
    3. Hong Kong Chinglish grammar, ie, Chinese grammar calqued to English
    4. parsing, parts of speech incoherent
    5. determiners
    6. numerous spelling errors

📘 Introduction has no thesis statement, a common mistake.
Considerable use of complex sentences coupled with discourse markers a decided plus;
Generally, the preponderance of persistent errors lowers the mark to no cigar.
