🎓 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.

【 TOEFL vs IELTS: How Are They Different? 】

Students are asked to submit a TOEFL or an IELTS test score is needed as a part of a student’s application to an English Speaking University. These are the standardized tests to determine English level by assessment of reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. Both the test differs in their exam structure, test format, scores, teaching criteria and more. In the article, we will explore the differences between the two. 👉 Source : http://bit.ly/2MvJ2KA

🎉 James’ Tips

This week we take a look at a Writing Task 2 written by a Hong Kong working professional targeting a 7.0. There are a number of issues in this sample, including a rather subtle but common issue with many HK students. See if you can spot it:

✅❎James’ comment on the student’s work:
Task achievement check.

Coherence and cohesion adequate.

Examples and arguments sound.

Better paragraphing, or, more careful topic sentence forming, will help. It is not necessary to put examples in a topic sentence, but rather, to articulate the point, followed by in the next sentence, examples, illustrations, analogies, etc. Possibly, since the two examples seemed central, to have them each in their own paragraph, with a paraphrased – not repeated – topic sentence that echoes and supports the thesis.

More effort in paraphrasing will help give a good first impression to the examiner, which of course, requires some lexical resource.
Spelling is essential at 7.0 and above.

A “time out”, is essentially, temporary prison for children, not exactly time away from the classroom, thus slightly awkward.

Some over use of “and” indicates lack of practice and flexibility with complex sentence structures not withstanding at least one solid instance of a complex sentence.

To make an argument, make an argument; not, maybe, make an argument.

Consider as a conclusion closing sentence, rather than “could, should, may, might”:

Demanding that children grow in knowledge and creativity while pigeonholing them is both an antithetical oxymoron, and worse, cruel and inhumane.

James’ Tips

This week we look at a sample by a Hong Kong working professional currently targeting an all 7.0.

Can you spot the positive and negative objective marking criteria?

  1. Chinglish
    2. prepositions
    3. determiners
    4. singular plural coherence
    5. spelling
    6. third person singular
    7. lexical accuracy
    8. more range
    9. parsing
    10. passive voice

📌 Comments 📌

Ideas trenchant, but no marks are awarded for good ideas; au contraire, it is the grammatical accuracy, grammatical range, and lexical sophistication, and precision, that renders the mark. Just too many errors, which can be overcome with adequate reading immersion and exposure coupled with writing practice.
