Many students ask me a question "I am weak in English. How do I improve my scores?". My answer to them is simple. why are you weak in English? I ask them because you have neglected it. I tell my students to listen to BBC news daily make notes and paraphrase and then discuss. I as them to write small blogs on familiar topics. Read small newspaper clips and articles, which can improve their reading speed and develop their vocabulary. Immersion in learning is very important. I have discussion forums and train them on the art of thinking and articulating, writing and expressing their ideas. When you read an article pay close attention to how ideas are organized. Read for understanding rather than just reading in a mechanical way.

Be focussed and committed. Make a timetable follow it meticulously. IELTS is a test of your skills on reading, listening, speaking and writing. This is not unfortunately like the memory test s that you have written all these days. It is rather skills that are tested. A lot of of practice is required. First, you must identify your areas of weakness and then work on it systematically to improve upon them.

Many people believe that social networking sites have had a huge negative effect on both individuals and society. To what extent do you agree with this? 

Social networking websites have undoubtedly changed the way people communicate in this modern era. Adults and children alike spend hours on the social media meeting people from around the world. It has been suggested that these outlets of communication have a detrimental effect on individuals and society as a whole. In my opinion, although these online platforms have revolutionized the concept of human communication,certain negative effects of these on users and society cannot be ignored.
 
To begin with, easy access to the internet at the workplace has made it possible for employees to visit the social networking sites at regular intervals. They steal time to catch up with their friends or update their status forcing their work responsibilities to take a backseat. These virtual distractions often interfere with their productivity and dedication towards their employment. It is not surprising that several organizations have already put in place a social networking policy for their employees during work hours. Further, the long exposures to these online platforms can also have a negative impact on their health. Constant exposure to computer screens not only promotes a sedentary lifestyle but might affect their eyesight too.
 
One major negative impact of the social media on society at large is the fall in communication among its members. People would rather spend their free time striking up relationships with individuals in faraway locations sharing information about their interests and opinions. Being hooked to the world of online communication, many hardly step out of their homes and interact with those who live nearby. As a result, many societies have become fragmented or isolated to a huge extent. It is for certain that human relations will be less strong if this trend continues.
 
To summarise,the social media will continue to play an important role in our lives. It is the responsibility of every individual to ensure that its use will not make the bonds between him and the community he lives in less strong.

There are many different types of music in the world today. Why do we need music? Is the traditional music of a country more important than the international music that is heard everywhere nowadays?
 
Our association with music begins as early as in childhood and continues throughout our lives indulging in it often,deriving excitement or solace.Music is not directly important for our survival,but for most of us life would be less interesting without it as we still have not come up with a better way to communicate our emotions,intentions and identity.Among the different genres of music in the world today,in my opinion,the traditional music of a country is more important than the international music that is heard everywhere nowadays.
 
In the first place,music is an essential part of how most of us enjoy our leisure time.It is so engrossing that we forget about our trials and worries of everyday existence.It has the power to elicit deeply personal and specific patterns of thought and emotion in us.Further,we need it to celebrate special occasions.Without music,it would not be the same celebrating at sporting events or embracing landmark moments such as wedding or birthdays.It also has the potential to help us perform better.Exposure to music activates and engages different areas of the brain,and has been shown to enhance memory and other cognitive functions.
 
What makes traditional music more important is the role it plays in preserving a nation’s culture,history and identity.It reveals the evolution of a society in terms of livelihood,values and aspirations.The knowledge can motivate its members to work towards achieving common goals and sharing their concerns. However,it is admitted that global music might always have wider audience as it plays to universal human feelings namely love, loneliness and loss but it can never fulfill the functions of traditional music better.
 
To conclude, the creation and performance of music maybe the exclusive domain of a few but its appeal permeates age and region and will never lose its sway in our lives.

The IELTS test is a standardized test taken by non-native English speakers; hence a lot of preparation is essential before clicking for your test date.

In my experience I have often seen students feeling intimidated when told that they speak "Indian English" or they need to hone their skills in the language. Again, I have seen students coming to seek professional help after taking the test many times or doing badly in a few of the four components, which would have resulted in a bad score. Either ways, it is the test taker who loses out his or her money, time, effort and self confidence, which can be demoralizing.

Instead, I personally feel, our test takers, especially Indians, must compulsorily go through a refresher course in English, study their strengths and weaknesses in the subject and then appear for the IELTS test after realizing that their Indian ways of speaking or writing will fetch them only lower band scores.

Next, after a thorough understanding of sentence structures, ways of speaking and interacting, familiarizing themselves with native accents and exposing themselves to a lot reading materials, they must set aside some quality time to either attend a coaching centre or study on their own. I have students who are regularly irregular and repent that they missed out on doing well in the test, even though they were capable of performing well! This late realization must not be your cause for repentance in later days!

Thus, after brushing up your language skills, going through a systematic process of tackling the components must you think of looking at the test dates. I am of the opinion that multi-tasking, feeling overconfident or taking the test lightly will not fetch you the desired result.

The evaluation process for each component in IELTS--speaking, reading, listening or writing--is so scientifically designed and systematically assessed that IELTS test takers must be aware of their weaknesses and work towards proficiency to avoid bad results.

So, aspirants, try, try, try again … must not be your philosophy here. Instead, ‘one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration’, combined with the adage ‘practice makes perfection’ must lead you towards getting a high band score at one go!

 Best Wishes,

Sheila Sudheendra
