PTE IELTS Essay Correction: Travel Necessary to Learn About Other Nations.

travel ielts pte

Some people think that travel is necessary to learn about other nations. Others, however, think that TV and the Internet are the best ways to learn about other countries. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

40 minutes, 250 words at least.

Please go through my answer HERE and another student’s essay HERE.

Answer:

Whether it is the Arctic or the Antarctic, the Himalayas or the Alps, the Amazons or the Sahara deserts, exotic attractions like these always sound exciting for to new visitors. While some people think we can effortlessly learn some knowledge a lot (knowledge includes the word learn) about foreign countries and destinations through TV and the Internet, I believe that it is the traveling experience to these places would give us the thorough and true taste of their beauties.

On the one hand, those who argue T.V and the Internet are the best ways are mainly convinced by the abundance of information (passive voice. Prefer active.) and easy access these tools provide. The proponents of television and the internet believe that easy access to these instruments and abundance of information enable people to learn about other countries. 

Indeed, the inventions of TV and the Internet both revolutionized common folks’ capabilities to visually explore the outside world. Very recently, the popularity of the Internet-based social media such as Facebook or and Youtube has broadened (tense mistake. Can’t be in the past tense.) human beings’ vision on other nations another step further with its great easiness and social nature(Avoid a few words to write in fewer words.)

So, with all these development in information technology in hand, it is natural to think we deserve the time as well as the energy to be saved by simply sitting on the couch and exploiting them. (this sentence is unnecessarily weird and complex) Consequently, these developments in information technology save time to understand the global developments.

On the other hand, those who insist travel is a better choice firmly believe that it is the personal experience that matters when it come comes (Subject-verb agreement) to getting to know knowing another country (Again, there are seven redundant words).

While enjoying the comfort and convenience by staying at home, you are also losing your chance to personally and physically expose yourself to another culture, which could be totally different. Your ideas could have been better expressed as: Unlike the television and the Internet, traveling exposes a person to local culture and teaches how to embrace diversity. 

For example, westerners who have been to China often hold different views on certain issues such as food and security from those who would just indulge themselves in news report on this country. Admittedly, once we visit a country in person that we have only been hearing of, we tend to change our ideas on it, which has been proved true by many people’s experiences (Please avoid passive voice.).

No matter how advanced and sophisticated information technology has become, TV views or the Internet browsers would always be left out of touch of true exotic joy. (27 words only. Please work on the conclusion and write between 40 and 50 words.)

Using Active Voice in IELTS Exam – Notes From Answer Checking.

active voice passive voice IELTS PTE.png

Image Courtesy: Pixabay.

An advice before you read this article:

“Compounding is the greatest mathematical discovery of all time” – Albert Einstein.

The secret of writing well is NOT to expect drastic changes in one day. Work on making continuous improvements every day and you will achieve your goal. With this message, let us begin our journey.

I’ve checked and published more than a hundred essays on this website so far and I’ve noticed that many students fail to use active voice. An active voice, with a clear subject in the beginning, is always better than the passive voice. I’ll present various instances in which students have committed this mistake along with suitable corrections.

It is contemplated by many (Passive Voice. Prefer Active.) that what should be taught to the young children: predominance of local history rather than the international history.

Rephrase: Many people contemplate whether children should be taught local history or international history.

The passive voice clearly makes things complex. Unlike passive voice, active voice places a SUBJECT at the beginning. Subject = Many People.

I am a resident of 43, Whitehall Close which was recommended by you (Passive Voice. Use Active.) as I have taken your services for finding this accommodation.

I took your services about a month ago to find the apartment I am living in currently.

The point is that if you eliminate the passive voice, things become simpler and ambiguity vanishes. Another active voice version of the above sentence could be:

“I am a resident of 43, Whitehall Close, which you recommended as a real estate agent.”

Let us look at another sentence:

I called you seven days ago but, unfortunately, any kind of service was not made available. (Passive voice. Prefer Active)

I called you seven days ago, however, you did not rectify the issue.

Isn’t active voice simpler to write and understand? It fetches you bands as well. Let us go through some more examples.

During the past two decades in Ghana, it has been reported by the local media (passive voice)  that prisoners who serve long-term sentences with difficult hardship turn out to be better and improved individuals after being released.

During the past two decades in Ghana, the local media has reported that prisoners who serve long-term sentences …..

Please note that “the local media” is placed at the head of the sentence. Let us look at an introductory sentence from task 1, academic.

The two pie charts compare the access to world wide web by the different internet browsers (Passive Voice. Try Active Voice.) in 2001 and 2010.

The two pie charts compare the use of different internet browsers to access the world wide web in 2001 and 2010.

I’ll keep adding more examples of active and passive voice in this article. Keep re-visiting this article to learn more.

PTE Essay: Travel Necessary to Learn About Other Nations

travel ielts pte

Image Courtesy: Pixabay

Some people think that travel is necessary to learn about other nations. Others, however, think that TV and the Internet are the best ways to learn about other countries. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

20 minutes, 200 to 300 words at least.

Answer:

Please go through a similar essay for the PTE Exam.

Introduction: (Introduce the topic and MENTION reasons supporting both opinions. EXPLAIN these reasons in the body paragraphs.)

In a globalized world, we cannot survive without learning about other countries, and about international political and economic developments. Watching the television and surfing the Internet help us learn about global developments from experienced reporters and field experts. However, travel is a better way to learn since it offers a first-hand experience and helps in networking.

Body Paragraph 1: (Reasons supporting television and the Internet)

Global news networks such as the B.B.C and Al Jazeera along with newspapers and magazines such as the Economist and the New York Times have a team of professional journalists who offer deeply researched insights on different countries. Reading detailed reports from these networks on the Internet gives an individual an idea of events, ranging from business to politics, in various countries. Moreover, these sources broadcast any new information or news as soon as it is generated. Hence, it keeps us informed with the latest content.

Body Paragraph 2: (Reasons supporting travel)

However, the Internet and television fail to provide the first-hand experience that helps in a person’s learning and growth. Travel, on the other hand, enables an individual to absorb various global events using all sensory perceptions. A person not only sees the prevailing conditions with his own eyes but also listens to the first-hand accounts of the people. Thus, travel helps build a personal as well as professional network that television and the Internet cannot. Furthermore, without traveling in a country, a person cannot understand the local culture and traditions which are vital in the modern business environment, For instance, famous international investors such as Jim Rogers prefer visiting various countries such as India, China, and Russia before making investment decisions.

Conclusion: (Conclude the essay with elements of FUTURE and IMPACT)

In conclusion, while travel offers a better learning experience, it is painfully slow. On the other hand, television and the Internet offer immediate information without the benefit of depth of learning. To learn about other countries, a person should prefer an optimum mixture of both channels.

IELTS Task 1 Academic: Recycling Aluminum Cans.

The flow chart below shows the process of recycling aluminum cans. 

Write a report describing the information shown below.

Screen Shot 2017-08-29 at 11.34.16 AM.png

20 minutes, 150 words at least.

Answer:

The given flow chart presents the cycle of recycling used aluminum cans to produce new cans.

Firstly, the garbage collectors gather the used empty beverage cans from schools, homes, and parks, and transport them to the scrap dealers and recycling centers. These cans are then crushed and flattened to create bales, which are further crushed to small aluminum chips.

Afterward, the chips are fed into a furnace and heated at a mild temperature to remove paints and coatings. The aluminum without any paint or coating is then heated at 350 degree Celsius and the molten metal is cast into the ingots for appropriate shape. These are then hot and cold rolled in a sheet compressor and roller to manufacture thin aluminum sheets.

The aluminum sheets are finally cut and molded into new aluminum cans. These cans are then used and again collected by garbage collectors.

IELTS/ PTE Essay Correction: Local History is More Important than World History.

history IELTS PTE.jpg

Image Courtesy: Pixabay

Local history is the important part than world history. To what extent do u agree or disagree?

IELTS: 40 minutes, 250 words at least.

PTE: 20 minutes, 200 to 300 words at least.

Answer:

It is contemplated by many (Passive Voice. Prefer Active.) that what should be taught to the young children: predominance of local history rather than the international history. Rephrase: Many people contemplate whether children should be taught local history or international history.

I firmly dispute the resolution (You’ve not proposed any resolution.) and believe that the global history should be the prior concern due to some reasons which would be followed in the preceding (preceding = before. Wrong word usage.) paragraphs. (Prefer mentioning the reasons in the introduction. Never write “… which will be followed in the paragraphs below.”)

One of the most contentious phenomena of this issue is that to embrace the young learns as a “global citizen.” (How is this a contentious phenomenon?)

The reason of this is that firstly, in terms of international business, the acknowledgment of global history inevitably promote the world business leader. This is due to that this (this is weird. Makes no sense.) attachment with the contemporary international trade and marketing policies enable them to grab the world market (Contemporary is opposite of history. How does this link with the topic – world history?).

As a result, no nations could not only remained within a border but also break through the barrier of a certain boundary. (The meaning of certain boundry and within a border is not clear.) Consequently, an understanding of global history makes a society more international and less isolated.

In addition, impoverished nations have been transformed to middle- income ranged economy to step into the multi-dimensional economy. Therefore, it is admitted that the school- bred children encouraged to emerge as successful world leaders. (You’re using over-complex words that do not gel into the sentence’s meaning. Switch from nation to children is without context and flow.)

Another pivotal issue to comprehend the global learning is that to accelerate the concept of humankind within the fresh learners. The contemporary and past issues of the annihilation in World War 1, 11 (write comelete: world war – 2), Syria, Gaza wars in Syria and Gaza, the refugee crisis, terrorism, catastrophic effects of global warming have been teaching them the humiliation of human rights and interruption in the global harmony. For instance, one of the most respected and admirable figures in the world history, Mother Teressa, is well- known for her generosity and humankind philanthropic activities (Link between Mother Teresa’s example and global wars is not clear. Example must be related to the idea of the paragraph.). If the young children known to came across these people’s biographical literature, it is projected that more and more Mother Teresa’s reincarnation would be observed (How does this link with our topic – world history or local history? Lost context.). Thus ample evidence suggests that the world history is vividly a subject matter of homogenous integrity. (Homogenous integrity? What is that?)

In conclusion, it is admitted that the gravity of world history is the most widest (widest includes most) factors of all (This is vague. What do you mean by widest factors of all?), however, the scope of local history is much narrower, from my perspective (The entire essay is your perspective and the examiner knows that.). The governments of nations should take this subject as the top most priority to include in the school curriculums to mitigate global conflicts.

354 words. Too long. Please write in a lucid manner with words that perfectly fit in the sentence’s meaning. Your ideas are fine. However, the choice of words makes things vague and reduce understanding.

IELTS Grammar Lesson: May vs Might

May Might IELTS PTE Grammar.jpg

The sentence above refers to a possibility. Image Courtesy: Wikimedia Commons

A lot of students confuse the usage of may and might. Let me clear the distinction between the two.

May is used to either ask for a permission or suggest the possibility of something. For instance: May I borrow your laptop? I may rain today.

Might, on the other hand, is used to refer to possibilities. The difference between may and might is that the latter is used to refer to smaller possibilities.

It may rain today. = There’s a possibility of rain.

It might rain today = There’s a small possibility of rain.

Please note that may have and might have are used to refer to the past as well.

There might have been some trouble, but I didn’t anticipate it.

Had it not been raining, I may have reached in time.

Had it not been raining, I might have reached in time.

When we are writing counterfactuals (something may/ might have happened), we prefer might over may. For instance, in the sentences above, “I might have reached in time” is a preferred construction.

IELTS PTE Essay Correction: Assess Students’ Ability Through Exams.

exams IELTS PTE.jpg

Image Courtesy: Pixabay

Some people believe that schools should not assess a student’s ability through exams but instead assess the by their course work and project work over the whole academic year. Do you agree?

IELTS: 40 minutes, 250 words at least.

PTE: 20 minutes, 200 to 300 words.

Answer:

There are various assessment methods used by schools to evaluate the level of ability of a student. It is argued that the course work and project outcomes should be the assessment criteria instead of examination. In my opinion, project based practical knowledge and theoretical education of learners should be assessed by educational institutes. Therefore, both assessment methods should be in cooperated in academic evaluation (Repetition of previous sentence in different words.). This essay will discuss the reasons why both assessment methods should be used by schools(Please go through any of my Writing Task 2 or PTE essays to learn the elements of a good introduction.)

An (Missing Article) examination is used to assess the level of understanding of the theory learned in the class room. Theoretical knowledge is essential to handle practical issues they would face in the industry. For example, students who study biology should know the symptoms of a disease and the first aid treatment by heart so that they can promptly attended in attend an emergency situation. Therefore, the (Missing Article) examination should be one of the assignment assessment methods at schools.

Furthermore, course works and projects are given to the students to gain practical experience and to improve their innovative thinking. Examining these work works will help to understand the capability of a student in implementing what they learned at in school in a real-world situation. In general, practical learning is different from theory. So, the schools have the responsibility to develop the thinking and provide practical experience to the students in order to face the real-life situations. Hence, course work and projects should be evaluated to see the capability of handling industrial projects.

Overall, this essay discussed that the student’s ability should be evaluated through examination and project work so that the students will have confident confidence in theoretical and practical knowledge which is are highly needed to act wisely at work place. (Please avoid this essay will discuss; this essay discussed. Not advisable.)

IELTS Essay Correction: Education is Important for Success in Life.

Success Education IELTS PTE.jpg

Image Courtesy: Pixabay

Some people believe that education is important to achieve success in life. To what extent do you agree or disagree. Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience. 

(Not less than 250 words… 40 minutes)

ANSWER

Indubitably, we cannot overemphasize the role of education in the achievement of success in our society today. Certain persons are of the opinion that education is indeed vital to one’s fulfillment in life. In my view education grants individuals a sense of value among in the society and gives persons them the opportunity of being employable. However, in some situations, focusing more on one’s talents and passion brings success(Excellent that you have MENTIONED some of the reasons supporting your view.)

To start with (You have already started with introduction), education offers individuals a sense of value in today’s society. Most people in the society (word repetition: society), especially the unlearned illiterate, respect persons that who are highly educated. To these persons (Word repetition: persons), the hallmark of one’s life is when an individual pursues a career in a chosen field and attains it. In Africa, for instance, people hold firmly to this believe belief, hence parents often strive to render their children quality education. (Avoid word repetitions. Learn pronoun usage – who vs that.)

Contribute to ELTEC

Help us remain a free service to the community. If you have benefitted from our service, please make contributions. Please choose multiples of $ 2.0. Thank you.

$2.00

In addition, individuals are employable when they are highly educated. When persons (Please try a different word) are educated to a significant extent in important careers such as medicine, engineering, and law, they stand a good chance of having a relevant reliable source of income. Success, to a degree, can be defined as when individuals are handsomely paid in the organizations they work for. For example, engineers in England earn as high as two million dollars annually.

However, in some scenarios, people succeed in life when they focus more on their passions and engage in their talents. The famous Argentine footballer, Lionel Messi, did not partake in the basic primary and secondary education. However, he has gained mastery of the sport by practising and doing intense training right from his tender a young age. He is known to be indeed successful as he is the richest footballer till date.

I’ve not mentioned this correction in the essay: Whenever you use “HOWEVER”, please start a fresh sentence and use a comma after however. “However, ……”

In conclusion, while education is cardinal universally because it commands people’s respect and brings job opportunities, I still believe focusing on individual endowments and passion will go a long way to accomplishment and fulfillment in life.

PTE Essay (IELTS task 2): Researching Family’s History.

Family History IELTS PTE.jpg

Image Courtesy: Wikimedia Commons

In some parts of the world, it is becoming popular to research the history of one’s own family. Why do people want to do this? Is it a positive or negative development?

IELTS: 40 minutes, 250 words at least.

PTE: 20 minutes, 200 to 300 words.

Answer:

For a change, I will not write an answer but give a suitable structure along with an explanation. Firstly, IELTS is an English language test. Do not make your essay technically strong. You will be awarded bands for better expression rather than technicalities.

Firstly introduce the topic with a 40 to 50 words introduction. Do not forget to mention the reasons why people search their history. Give two reasons that you’ll explain in the body paragraphs. Let me give a sample introduction:

“History of a family is a record of the family tree extending back to several generations. People in various countries prefer researching their family background since it helps in preventing many genetic diseases and scientifically denounces the idea of racism.”

The body paragraphs should explain the above-mentioned points in greater detail.

Body Paragraph 1: Genetic diseases + example. (About 50 words)

Body Paragraph 2: Idea of racism (Similarity among all humans) + example. (About 50 words)

Body Paragraph 3: Advantages and disadvantages. (70 words)

Conclusion, as I have mentioned in several previous essays, should contain the elements of FUTURE + IMPACT. Try to keep it as positive/ optimistic as possible. For instance:

“In conclusion, developing a family tree depicting the history of a person’s family promotes the feeling of unity among people and prevents many diseases. This helps in making a community socially more stable and sustainable while promoting the ideals of unity in diversity.”

So, as a result, Consequently, I and my family my family and I have to suffer a lot owing to hot summer days. You could have merged the two sentences to create one complex sentence. Unfortunately, the apartment’s coolant system stopped working last week, and my family and I have been spending the hot summer days in utter misery (suffering).

It is really giving miserable wet to us. (Explain your misery in a greater detail – which family member suffers from which problem?) Consequently, my wife and I can not cook food in our kitchen without drenching our clothes in sweat. My father, who suffers from a heart disease and needs an appropriate temperature to maintain his health, has seen a rapid increase in his blood pressure. My daughter’s grade 10 exams are just a week away and she can not concentrate on her studies due to extreme heat in the house.

We are not able to relax at home as it is a pre-requisite of us in summer days.

For making you aware of this issue, I called you seven days ago but unfortunately, any kinda kind of service was not availed (Passive voice. Prefer Active). I am really very disappointed by this with the problem as well as your response.

Therefore, I want quick service from your side for removing the glitch. I hope you will consider my problem seriously. which will make me grateful ultimately.

Yours Sincerely,

IELTS Essay Correction: Development of Technology Causes Traditional Ways of Life to Die Out.

Traditional Skills IELTS PTEImage Courtesy: Pxhere.

When a country develops its technology, the traditional skills and way of life die out. It is pointless to keep them alive. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?

40 minutes, 250 words at least.

Please read the structure of this essay HERE.

Every country has its own traditions and ways of living. It is very important to keep traditions to help younger generations to know about their countries country’s history. However, when a country improves its technology, the traditional skills and way of living changes change automatically. I partially agree with this statement (Which statement? You never mentioned “It is pointless to keep them alive”). I believe that both the technology and traditional skills are required for a (Article missing) country’s growth.

Initially, every country tries to develop its technology. Because the improvement in technology gives a lot of benefits to a (Article missing) nation. (Both these sentences should be linked. Otherwise the latter sentence is incomplete.)

Moreover, (You’ve not stated the first benefit yet. How can you use Moreover?) it reduces the time requirement to required for a particular work and gives more productivity. For instance, in the past, farmers use used animals and some of the iron equipment to make for cultivation and transportation facilities. After the improvements in technology, nowadays, they use automobiles for farming and transportation purposes. It gives the productive time to work. This has improved the productivity of farmlands.

On the other hand, the traditional skills and ways of living also play an important role in a (Article missing) country’s growth. (You have not explained the first point (growth), you have raised a new point.) So that people remember their old skills and way of living. Without the past things, we might not develop our technology because they are the basic things to make growth in every country. (Vague sentence. Repetition of first two sentences.) There also

There also lot of uses by keeping our past skills alive. By using them, there is no heavy pollution. (You need to learn how to create a complex sentence by merging two simple sentences.) Furthermore, it gives quality product output. The lands also have good strength for farming.

NOTE: You’ve raised several points explaining the benefits of traditional skills. However, you have explained none of them. This will cost you bands in the exam.

To conclude, a country also develops its technology, by keeping the traditional skills and ways of life alive a country can develop technology while maintaining traditional skills and ways of life. I believe that these both are required to for a nation to improve grow sustainably.  Because the two have their individual importance on a nation. (The sentence is vague and makes little sense.)

IELTS PTE Essay Correction: Learn About Other Countries.

travel countries IELTS PTE.jpg

Some people think that travel is necessary to learn about other nations. Others think television and the Internet are the best ways to learn about other countries. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

40 minutes, 250 words at least.

In today’s epoch (wrong usage of epoch. It is aloways followed by of. EPOCH OF peace; EPOCH OF globalization, etc.), globalization is one of the controversial aspects of this world. A few people believe that travelling is an essential part to explore about other countries while others opine that Television and the Internet are robust alternatives of to travelling. This essay will have comparative analyze on both sides, to conclude. (Writing “this essay ……” is not recommended.)

Admittedly, travelling serve serves as a veritable tool to receive authentic information regarding any country because all the exploring experiences are live ??? and can be re-confirmed quickly (What do you mean by reconfirmed? Sentence meaning is not clear.). Take for instance China, where the government provides free tourist visa for people aged 18 and above to encourage and revive touring around the world. Later year (Nothing called later year exists in the English language), the statistics showed (You’ve earlier used the present tense and now you’ve switched to the past tense.) an increase in socializing behavior and general knowledge, in particular among the young generation. As a result, it enhanced (Tense problem) the social and intelligence quotient.

However, in this era of cutting-edge technology, Television and the internet are considered as effective modes to broadcast any information by just a single click. It helps to save both hard-earned money and time together. For example, the National Geographic team telecast travelling telecasts travel documentaries along with launching internet tourism blogs all together to keep update the people (about what?) anywhere around the world. It helps improve impart information about the facts and figures of the desired country at any time.

In conclusion, I strongly believe that effort of a (Article usage) voyage holds more importance for the long-term impact on interpersonal communications and longevity in any community (the question is not on communications or longevity. Rather it is on learning about a country.) rather the virtual tours with lack of experiencing the real life adventures.

IELTS PTE Essay Correction: Self-Employed or Working for Companies.

Some people prefer to be self-employed where as others like working for companies or institutions. Which is the better approach?

PTE: 20 minutes, 200 to 300 words.

IELTS: 40 minutes, 250 words at least.

Answer:

Everyone has to do some kind of work to earn bread and butter. Some people believe that doing own business has more benefits whereas others are in the favor of doing jobs. In my opinion, although one can earn more profit from own personal business, getting experience from jobs cannot be neglected. (Introduction is still not strong enough. You can make it better by MENTIONING the reasons supporting your opinion)

Those, who are in the favour of self employment, (The presence of two commas makes this a MODIFYING clause which is wrong.) assert that one becomes ones one’s own boss at workplace meaning that one not only has flexibility in timings but also has own rules. (the sentence is too long and weird) Those who favor self-employment assert that one becomes one’s own boss allowing flexibility of time and creating own rules.

They (You can’t suddenly shift from one to they) do not need to ask anyone before taking any decision. Moreover, If your (from one to they to your. Not correct.) business is successful, you merely will be given credits and you can decide your own salary. If u ???? want more, you can work more; that is the bottom line. Badly structured.

Those, who support job in any organisation, (Mistake of MODIFYING clause repeated) believe that one neither need needs to invest a lot of money nor need needs to take any risk, if he or she is doing any job. Apart from this, Moreover, a person will get salary at a particular time regardless of any loss to business. To illustrate I am a working professional. Although I have not invested any money or have not taken any risk, I get my salary at a particular time even if my company is going in loss. ()

In conclusion, combination of both is required. Firstly, an individual should go for doing job in that the field in which he wants to start business. After getting experience he or she can opt self employment. A recent survey by Forbes magazine shows that 70% seventy percent people who failed to run own business were freshers who just started their business after completing studies. (This is not a conclusion. This is just another body paragraph. You need to understand a conclusion’s structure. Please go through this essay and study the exact structure of conclusion.)

IELTS Essay Correction: Modern Communication Technology and Social Relationships.

communication technology IELTS PTE

Many people think modern communication technology is having some negative effects on social relationships. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?

40 minutes, 250 wor

It has been claimed that the cutting-edge communication technology has an adverse effect on the social connections of an individual. I agree because this may lead to misunderstanding, isolation to oneself, and losing the value of real friendship. (38 words. Perfect! Mentioned the reasons supporting your opinion.)

The modern way of interacting or communicating with others such as text messaging and online chatting have has (the subject is modern way, a singular) undesirable effects towards a person’s social relations. First and foremost Firstly, this can cause misunderstanding between two people. To illustrate, by just sending a simple text message, the receiver might not understand fully what he reads because it has no emotion or tone and cannot see the facial reaction of the sender. As a result, misinterpretation of the message will happen, hence creating a (Article mistake) misunderstanding between them.

Another issue of the modernized way of communication is that it Secondly, modern communication (11 words replaced with 3. There was a LOT of redundancy in the sentence. BREVITY.) can make an individual be isolated from the society. Since he would be staying at home chatting online of and sending emails to his friends. Thus, his social interaction with other people is less, consequently reducing his socializing skills that may lead to isolation and be distant distance from others. (Rule of Parallelism violated. Please go through my article on parallelism.)

Finally, advancement of communication can exploit the true meaning of friendship. Many had have (Please understand the difference between Present Perfect and Past Perfect tense.) experienced scam and extortion from the people they meet online. This has been the new modus of criminals online (repetition of the word: online), befriending their potential victim by building and gaining their trust on social media. After that, this victim is conned to send money, only later they will realize that they had been scammed.

In conclusion, I believe that this progression is detrimental to people’s social connection relationships and therefore, people should be cautious in utilizing this advanced technology of communication. (Conclusion is fine. Not too powerful. Please go through THIS ESSAY’s CONCLUSION and try writing a better conclusion in the comments box below.)

IELTS Speaking Vocabulary – Point of View and Opinion.

IELTS Speaking Interview

Image Courtesy: Pixabay

I’ve read in umpteen Facebook groups students’ looking for a vocabulary book to improve IELTS speaking and writing scores. There are two types of vocabulary you need to score well in the IELTS speaking test.

  1. General English vocabulary.
  2. Topic related vocabulary.

Most students I’ve interviewed tend to repeat a particular word or phrase to express an opinion. For instance, some students prefer “well” while others say “I think” to express a personal point of viewThis tends to make a conversation monotonous and reduces your band score. Try the following expressions:

  1. In my experience/ in my view/ in my opinion.
  2. I believe that.
  3. I’d suggest that/ I’d say that.

 

In several follow-up questions (part 3 of speaking test), the examiner asks for your opinions. For instance, in a follow-up question to a cue card on technology, an examiner asked: “Do you think the invention of the wheel was important?”. You can use the following expressions:

  1. Of course.
  2. I couldn’t agree more.
  3. I agree with that (you) entirely.

Or you can choose to disagree with the opinion. Common expressions to show disagreement are:

  1. I don’t think so.
  2. I’m afraid I have to disagree.
  3. I’m not sure about that.
  4. Of course not.

IELTS PTE Essay Correction: Animal Rights – 1.

Animal rights IELTS PTE

Image Courtesy: Wikimedia Commons

Some people believe that humans should be able to use animals for their own benefit, while others argue that the rights of animals should be protected. Discuss both these views and give your opinion. Give reasons for your answer, and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.

40 minutes, 250 words at least.

Please go through my answer on this topic and that of a student.

Answer:

Animals should be of benefit to humans. (Both the sentences have the same meaning. Repetition.) Although, many people will be of the opinion that humans should be able to use animals for their own benefit. (Incomplete sentence. Correct Construction: Although X, Y) (The introduction is too short and does not contain proper structure. Please go through my answer above to learn the structure.)

However, in terms of people using animals for their own benefit, it has its own using animals for human’s benefit has both positives and negatives. In terms of sports, humans over the years have used animals to make a substantial amount of money, example (Dog and Horse racing) (Do not use parenthesis – brackets – in your answer). Furthermore animals like cow, goat, lamb, ram are being reared for sale and for food. In terms of agriculture, humans have benefitted from the use of animals like such as cattles cattle (cattle is a pronoun), as they are still being used for subsistence farming in some parts of Nigeria, as they are being used (Repetition. Do not use two reasons in the same sentence.) to plough plow through the farm to create ridges for their crops. The animals (feaces feces) serve as manure which is being used to make their crops grow faster increases agricultural productivity.

On the other hand, the rights of animals should also be protected because there are some  (Some = Certain) certain animals going becoming extinct because of human invasion interference. For example, elephants are being killed for their tusks; tigers, snakes, and crocodile are being killed for their skin. Currently, because of this invasion human greed, there is only one remaining white rhino left in the world. Meanwhile, some other animals are being killed to be used as trophies which is not right (the examiner knows that the entire paragraph is devoted to this theme “which is not right”. Need not say this.). Of course rights of animals should be protected in other to keep the animal population figures in check, that way it will be able to curb the rate at which certain animals are going extinct. Repetition of the first line. Redundancy.

In my opinion, animal rights should be protected because it will help the animal population grow enormously. For example, Pandas were almost extinct sometime in 2014, but due to the necessary rights granted to these animals in, Pandas were being protected and today, Pandas are no longer on the verge of extinction, the numbers are growing higher by the day because they are living and reproducing naturally in the normal habitat. Examples are meant for body paragraphs only. The conclusion has its own structure. Please follow that. For more, go through my answer.
