James’ Tips ️

This week we take a look at a sample essay that is typical of HK’s working adults’ standard.

This sample was written by a HK working man targeting a 7.0. Observe:

📌 = = Comments = = 📌

  1. spelling issues
  2. abject lack of a range of complex sentence structures
  3. oversimplification of sentences
  4. perfect tense issues
  5. more range issues
  6. HK Chinglish issues
  7. lack of clear paragraphing
  8. “The Wall” style of writing
  9. no clear thesis statement but mere prose
  10. no clear conclusion

Generally, the rampant solecism or sheer volume of grammar errors coupled with the decided lack of complexity, spelling errors, tense coherence issues, and paragraphing structural issues, which dramatically and adversely impact performance, overall render a 5.5 performance. More grammar accuracy, clear paragraphing and grammar range, are needed to boost performance.
