I have a question about an 8775 Advantage Disadvantage essay 8776 . When I see question like this: 8775 Do you think the advantages of economic development outweigh the disadvantages? 8776 may I state my opinion in the thesis statement? Or should I leave it impersonal?
Hi Liz, I did my exam tod7ay but I am worried. For my essay paragraphs, I made sure the paragraphs ended at the middle of the line.
However I did not indent or leave a blank space. It 8767 s very obvious that it 8767 s a different paragraph but no space and indentation. Would I be penalised for this? Should I forget it and just write another ielts?
Even a native speaker needs to prepare for the writing test. It is skills based as well as language based. This is the reason why having excellent English is not enough. When is your next test?
The model answers from IELTS are not designed to make essay writing easier for you. They don 8767 t want to make their test easy. But teachers work hard to make it more achievable which is why their models are better. It is best if you spend more time learning about how the writing is marked and how to improve your score based on the marking criteria.

Hi Liz hope you doing well.
I am fahim from have scored 7 bands in academic ielts on 9th Jan. This is my bad luck that i was not aware of this site before my exam.
I am currently working as a assitant teacher in my classes from where I had tutions of ielts.
I will have most of your site for my juniors. You are doing best job keep it up.
MAY GOD BLESS YOU.
You need to spend more time reviewing the band score criteria for speaking and writing so you understand what the examiner is looking for. See my main pages. Also make sure you aim for accuracy in English for speaking and writing rather than try to impress the examiner. For reading and listening spend more time working on paraphrasing skills and also techniques for question types.
All the best
The main thing I have learned from teaching my students these methods is that no one method is suitable for everyone. You have to try each of them out and see which one works for you. When you are practicing remember, the examiner is looking for relevant ideas that you can support by explaining them and giving examples. You should also use the one that gives you ideas quickly. You will only have 7 or 8 minutes for idea generation in the exam. Don 8767 t worry if this is taking you a lot of time at the moment, you will improve with practice. Pick a method below, set yourself a time limit and practice with some old past exam papers.
So as you can see, in a couple of minutes we have generated many ideas by asking ourselves just three of the five questions. These ideas are much more than we need to complete the task, so always remember to choose the ones you feel comfortable writing about after you generate your ideas.
