【 James’ Tips🔑】
“How can I get a high band (7.0) in IELTS?”, many students ask.
Having a strong introductory paragraph is a good start.

🗣James’ comment on the student’s work:
– It is not necessary nor desirable in fact, to start every single Task 2 essay with “controversial / hot topic”. The phrase is hackneyed or has been used to death by all the candidates. Just don’t use it, if you want to sound different that is.
– Single plural incongruence right from the beginning is a nice head shot. The chances of surviving a head shot though not non-existent, remain slim.
– Lexical resources evident.
– Incorrect prepositional usage.
– Linking evident. Some linking arbitrary.
– Some collocation issues.
– Some range carelessness.
– “Tendencies / the tendency”. Lack of awareness regarding the indefinite article, the definite article, or plurality, remains the more persistent problem you are struggling with.
– Some good descriptives.
– Continue to bolster your lexical repertoire.
– Tighten up accuracy with grammatical range, as well as try extending it.

📝📝From student⬇:
Task 1 (IELTS 10 Test 2)

The following table collates information in the UK, Switzerland, Denmark, Belgium and Sweden on the sales condition in Fairtrade-labelled banana and coffee in the year of 1999 as well as in 2004. In general, the sales of coffee in five European countries has risen from 1999 to 2004. In contrast, the sales of banana in Sweden and Denmark have a downward trend whereas other countries have an upward trend …

✏✏By James⬇:

The above IELTS Writing Task 1 Introduction paragraph, was recently written by a secondary student from Hong Kong currently studying in the UK, whose target is also a 7.0 in order to get into one of the top universities, yet like the overwhelming majority of Hong Kong students, has a very typical English level of approx. 5.5 fluctuating to 6.0. Slightly better than Hong Kong’s average in fact.
Can you spot the mistakes as well as well done techniques performed by the student? 🧐

➡➡Comments:

-Inaccurate preposition usage, particularly the use of HK-Chinglish’ number 1 favourite and almost always incorrect preposition of, “on”. No, it is a not a master key.
-The noun form was incorrectly used. It should have been plural when referring to the general sense.
-Unnatural lexis choice; amended.
-A summary linker was used, which is good. The definite article was dropped; not good.
-A main trend was given, very good. Most candidates are lazy and don’t do this.
-The perfect tense is used, which is very rare. Approximately only 1% of HK students can manage effective use of this tense.
-Descriptives are not adequately used.
-Another link; not bad.
-Lexical resource is “adequately” displayed, a polite word that means “not enough”.
-A single complex sentence is made. This is better than nothing, but not quite strong.
