95% of the students, seeking Band 7 in ILETS OR 65 IN PTE, find themselves just shoet of the traget,.

Mu techiniwue is very simple, once you have got the basics in place, lexical resources, grammar, sentence construction, paragraphing and the outline of the essay, go through a series of topics and build up a template heavy in quality but kight in qualtity. Apply the same balm all the time and you will get your Band 7 or score care 65 in PTE.

Those looking for 79 in PTE, THE APPROCAH HAS TO BE DIFFERt.

We cannot deny the fact that writing is the most important module of IELTS. There are multiple ways through which we can improve our writing. In this essay, I will highlight some of the errors which a candidate often make while attempting an Essay in IELTS. First and foremost factor which a student should consider is, grammar. Usually, it is seen that students do some common mistakes as like putting ‘s’ where there is plural subject and forget to put "s" with singular subject. Apart from it, they mainly write in active language instead of passive language. That’s why, they do not get good bands as they expect. Moreover, I personally believe that many of the times data is given in past but they opine in present and even they do not bother about future wherever there are projections.

Secondly, the problem which I have encountered while making corrections in writing Essay of students is: Spelling. Spellings are also the major problem which is usually done by Indian students. Due to their more inclination towards most of the people are writing emails in their day to day life which is often corrected by systems. Which ultimately has removed their habit of keeping words in their mind. Because of this, their bands get deducted. So, this is the huge requirement to work on it.

Thirdly, the another important aspect is their usage of active language instead of passive language. Most of the time, it is observed that they use active language which somewhere isn’t able to meet the expectations of examiner. A student should have complete knowledge about the usage of passive language. It can be improved by reading newspaper up to much extent.

Fourthly, the usage of good vocabulary is highly required in IELTS. The candidates who are studying, they are not able to put heavy words while writing an essay. Some of them have less knowledge about it and some do not take pains to work on it. On the other side, Professionals who are using English in their daily lives are quite familiar about them. At
the end note, it is completely apparent, the vast knowledge of words is highly required to crack the test with good bands.

Apart from it, it is manual exam so it’s very much important that you should have good handwriting. Because a candidate is going to represent his/her ideas through words that are written by his / her writing. So it is pretty much important to work on your handwriting also.

Furthermore, it is frequently seen that students start writing soon as they get the paper so in this way, usually they are not able to line out their ideas in sequence. It is highly advised that they should plan the topic first. Each and every paragraph is properly planned otherwise the things which are needed to put initially are written in the end which adversely effect on the band score.

To recapitulate, I would like to conclude my ideas by saying that all the above things should be taken into consideration while preparing or scoring well in IELTS.

In the IELTS writing module task 2, the first lesson is to ensure the word count. As per the instructions, the candidate is instructed to write ' at least 250 words ', therefore, follow the instructions. At least 25/30 more than the requisites, so around 275 words should be the norm.
The next important requisite is grammar and vocabulary. In this lesson, I am just emphasizing on this and will post a lesson in the near future. Here, I want to discuss the structure of the essay.
The three steps every candidate must gain mastery on is Argument, Idea, and Evidence.

1. Argument is the point you want to discuss or argue upon. It is the overall point of view that you have and should be the starting point.

2. Ideas are your support system, every idea that you develop must reinforce the argument, support the argument that you have presented. The sequence must be very clear, your argument must be supported by the ideas that you have.

3. Evidence is the strong pillars on which your argument and your ideas rest upon. Without evidence, the arguments and the ideas are hollow and fall all over the place and coherence is lost and there is no clarity.

Once these very basics are understood and imbibed, the candidate must have a long and hard look at the topic given. The topic could have just one single sentence or a number of sentences. Quite often, a question or two could also be a part of the topic. A candidate must be able to judge a statement for what it is and sometimes turn it into a question. Similarly, a candidate must develop skills which will turn a question into a statement.

These are the very basics of starting your essay. which means that you must Understand the topic to the best of your capability. Merely looking at the topic and giving it a cursory glance and then starting your essay could and would lead you to completely miss the basic and main thesis of the topic and, in such a scenario, a very high level and mastery of the language will only take you so far and no further. To achieve a high band in the IELTS test (Band 7 or more) understanding the topic given and then handling it with all the nuances is the key.

Having understood the topic, next step is to ponder over it. Look at it from this or that angle. Look at Yes and No from all the perspective and sort them out in your mind. Consider the pros and cons, the advantages and the disadvantages and sequence them out or, better still, write them out in a miniature form, a sort of 10/20 words note which will help you to write the complete 250+ words essay.

Proper paragraphing or lack of it, is a very important cog in the complete machine that drives the essay to a higher and higher level. Therefore, you must have a complete Plan in your mind, you must be very sure of how many paragraphs are needed, what your introduction will look like, the body paragraphs and their exact content must be clear and concise (before you begin writing) and the conclusion must bear a touch of finality, a sort of summing up the whole issue in a sentence or two, with absolutely no ambiguity in the mind of the reader, in this case the examiner.

The last and final trick is to always Check. I am sometimes extremely surprised with a touch of annoyance bordering on irritation when, some of my students whom I consider to be good and, in fact, are good, show a sense of immaturity and make a silly mistake because they simply did not check or re-check their sentences. It will come as a great revelation to everybody if you just go through your own writing after a while, you will always realize that a comma here, an article here or there, a change in the format of a word can make a significant if not a huge difference.

Writing is one of the important module of IELTS. It is checked manually. So the expectations of the examiner are quite high. To meet the expectation, it is really important to learn writing skills. The below tips will help you to score 7+ in IELTS writing:

Read the questions very carefully. Often the question will ask you to do three or four different things, aside from the main question. Jot them down and make sure you address all of them in your answer.

The IELTS examiner will be checking for this.

Practice writing tasks within the given time limits. It really doesn't matter if you can write a beautiful answer in two hours. Always recreate the conditions of the exam as closely as possible, when doing any kind of practice exercises.

Plan before you write Even though you feel under pressure for time, spend the first few minutes planning your writing. Decide what you're going to say and how you'll expand on it. When you know what to write, you can concentrate on howto write it best. Experiment with the great variety of outlining and mind-mapping techniques to help you sketch out a plan quickly.

Write in an organized way When you've planned in advance, you'll end up with a more organized, logical piece of writing, which will earn you higher marks. There are many ways to be organized – linear, circular, etc. – but in the end the final product must be cohesive.

Stay on topic You will be penalized if you stray off topic. This is where the initial few minutes of planning can help you a great deal.

Divide your writinginto paragraphs. It is confusing to be faced with a block of writing, with no divisions. You wouldn't expect to read a magazine article or book like this. Always divide your writing into paragraphs.

Write clearly This is not the time or place to experiment with new vocabulary or idioms. Use simple, clear English to get your ideas across in a powerful way.

Write legibly Though marks are not granted or taken away for poor or messy writing, the examiner should be able to read what you have written without undue difficulty.

Spell correctly Yes, this does affect your score so avoid careless mistakes. A careless mistake is when you have spelt the same word in various ways in the same piece of writing or when you misspell a word which is already given in the exam topic and all you have to do is copy it correctly. That's not okay. Watch for this when you're practicing and resolve to overcome it.

Don't use slang This is the time to show off the best English you know. Find the correct way to express your thoughts and convey your ideas, without resorting to slang. Be aware that certain expressions, such as "kids" instead of "children" and "guys" or "gals" instead of "men" or "women", also fall into the category of slang and should be avoided.

Don't use contractions

In the Academic Writing tasks. In English, contractions are used in informal writing, and the Academic tasks demand formal writing.

Use rich vocabulary You have learned English for many years and this is the time to use what you know. Stay away from over-used adjectives such as "good" or "bad". Instead, use more dramatic, expressive words, such as excellent, wonderful, superb, or adverse, horrible, terrible, etc. Choose the more precise word over the more general one. This will make your language come alive, in speech or in writing, and earn you higher marks.

Don't write more or less words than you need to Writing too many will take too much time, and there is a greater possibility of making mistakes. Writing too few is worse – it will cause you to lose marks.In the essay, don't repeat major chunks of the question

In your answer. Instead, state what you understand of the questions and what you plan to include in your answer.

To recapitulate my views, I would conclude by saying that It is required to work really hard to improve writing skills before one goes for IELTS test. The all upper tips will surely help to attain good bands in IELTS.

Universities should accept equal numbers of male and female students in every subject. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
 
Universities are centres of higher education and research,offering a wide range of courses in various fields.Feminists around the world often advocate these institutions accepting the same number of male and female students in each discipline,to promote gender equality.However,many academicians are opposed to this idea of considering the sex of an applicant before offering a place. In my opinion,the criteria for admission of students at the tertiary level must be merit and aptitude to study.
 
To begin with,it would not be realistic for any university to stipulate the admission of the same number of men and women to any course offered in any discipline.It is a well known fact that different individuals have a varied amount of interest in different subjects.For example,in any country the proportion of females choosing to pursue nursing at the graduation level is higher than that of males.If fifty percentage of these positions are reserved for the male applicants,many females aspiring to become nursing professionals would be at a disadvantage. Therefore,it stands to reason that the meritorious must have the opportunity to study the subjects of their choice,with their gender identity not interfering.
 
Further,another important criterion in any university ought to consider is the aptitude of an applicant for his chosen field of study.Successful completion of a course by an individual is not only dictated by the amount of hardwork and research put in,but to a huge extent on his flair for it.If it is the only yardstick applied in the selection procedure before acceptance is a person’s gender identity,the quality of a nation’s future workforce would definetely be affected adversely.
 
To conclude,the efforts to promote gender equality must be encouraged,but it should not be achieved by compromising on potential and talent.

Some people think that children should learn to compete, but others think that they should be taught to cooperate with others. What is your opinion?

Some parents encourage their children to be competitive both in studies and contests, instilling in them the significance of individualism and personal achievement while others encourage collaboration among little ones,emphasising the need of cooperation in life. In my view, cooperative learning is preferable despite some of its obvious drawbacks.

In cooperative learning students work together towards a common goal, enjoying feelings of bonding with other members of the group. It not only promotes a sense of teamwork among them but provides a platform to enhance their communication skills too as the process involves adequate face to face communication.

Further, this model of learning allows them to utilise their individual strengths in achieving the task. Working as a team each member is assigned a responsibility conforming to his strength and expertise,enhancing productivity and efficiency.

Similarly, the team members will also want to explore how well they can function as a single unit throughout the process and how strong personal relations can be.

However,It would also be relevant to consider the amount of benefit young ones can derive from the individual model in terms of knowledge and skills.As it is more suited for ordinary or slow students,the more inquisitive and eager ones might find the exercise of little use and feel disenchanted over time.

A practical solution to overcome this situation is to conduct inter group contests which would mitigate the adverse effect of individualism and sustain the interest of the outstanding ones.

To conclude, the onus is on the teachers to identify the most suitable learning style for students and contemplate its outcomes.In cooperative learning success stems from collective efforts but in competitive learning one succeeds at the cost of other participants

It is sometimes said that a high salary is the most important factor in choosing a job. Do you agree?
 
In this modern world the measure of professional success often appears to be the salary an individual draws at his job. Although it is not disputed that a sufficiently high income is necessary for one to lead a healthy lifestyle, there are several other factors worth considering prior to choosing a particular employment.
 
First and foremost, the environment a person needs to work in can definitely be decisive in bringing about job satisfaction. If the environment is positive, colleagues supportive and affable,coupled with the employer providing the adequate resources to accomplish the tasks he would definitely carry out his professional responsibilities contented, not only contributing to the growth of the organisation but improving the quality of his life in general as well. Further, he would be more satisfied in his present job if he believes he has exciting prospects of promotion which could fetch higher compensation and respect.
 
In addition, job satisfaction can also be impacted by the opportunities an employee has at the workplace to learn new skills and ideas. The position can involve adapting to new situations and tackling unanticipated challenges which would not only require putting to application one’s academic skills but sharpening ingenuity too. The newly acquired expertise and exposure will definitely prove to be a source of glee as they can be useful in enhancing chances of rising from the ranks or securing the employment against dismissal.
 
To summarise, although financial considerations can heavily influence one’s choice of employment in any field, evaluation of the work surroundings and potential for learning more can undoubtedly be quite useful in arriving at an appropriate decision.

Making air travel cheaper would be detrimental to the environment. To what extent do you agree with this?
 
Gone are the days when air travel was a luxury only the wealthy could afford. In this era of globalisation, hundreds of thousands of people travel by air worldwide thanks to airline companies lowering their fares and operating more flights. However, it is contended that the economic viability of flying could have a deleterious effect on the environment.
 
It is undeniable that the heat, noise and gases emitted by aircrafts endanger the environment and human health and air travel the largest unrestricted source of carbon pollution in most developed countries.However,the policy of opposing the move to make traveling by air more affordable would be very unpopular with everyone keen to travel long distance. The measure can only restrict the number of journeys made beyond a country and people will still travel by road defeating the objective of bringing down pollution.
 
On the other hand, if more people traveled across the world, it would promote a deeper understanding of different cultures promoting better relations among nations and world peace. More visitors from other countries will stimulate tourism which would increase tax revenue providing governments more disposable funds to invest in fields such as education,infrastructure and health. In addition,global travel has been widely regarded as a physically and mentally healthy pursuit.The benefits of traveling to faraway locations range from a break from mundane and hectic lifestyles to exploring places of scenic beauty or historic importance.
 
To conclude,tackling pollution is not a matter of what mode of transport people use.The solution to the problem lies in developing environmental friendly fuels and promoting fuel efficient airplanes.

‘IELTS ‘   A PIECE OF CAKE?

IELTS, a test which tests individual's proficiency in English language is one of the most recognized and accepted language test. It is getting popular among students and foreign job seekers, leaps and bounds. But to score high is a daunting task .this feat can’t be achieved until to strategies all the four sections and other sub sections. In this article, very first to start with ‘describe image’ in ‘writing section1’.

WHAT IS ‘DESCRIBING IMAGE’?

Unlike other academic images types this required a complete new approach which means a comparative and analytical approach in order to write data in words. First we need to know what’s this task type-this is basically a writing task needs to be written within 150 words. Describing images are of following types:-

  1. Chart or graph - bar chart, flow chart, pie chart etc.
  2. Table-tabulated table.
  3. Cycles – progression,development,and transformation etc.
  4. Real or virtual images- any natural image like human, animal etc.

But it’s not an end itself; it’s just the means to an end. Now the proper strategy and smartness of sense of language will pave the way for getting high score in exam. There are following steps need to be taken means there are certain parameters such as –

 

  • English phrases
  • Data vocabulary
  • Coherency among statements
  • Data analysis  

 

The entire content vis a vis comparative analysis will revolve round it, with the help of written grammar rules.
The other daunting task is how to frame the information given in graph. In order to make it coherent, divide the whole part in three segments.

  1. Introduction.
  2. Body.
  3. Conclusion.

First and foremost important task is to recognize what kind of graph or image is that and then to give overview of the graph. Then comes to body it needs to be structured and coherent and explicitly mention the extreme changes in graph. Good vocabulary and suitable statistical phrases are prerequisite for writing success.

Conclusion is vital for an ideal piece of writing like image writing and essays etc.it must have been carried a weight, like –It should be positive and optimistic. Conclusion in such exams carries lots of weight. Overall range of the English is actually needed which will be prerequisite for effective writing.
