Re: Please check my answer [ Task 2 ]

Hi! Well, to be honest, if you really have no idea about the topic, there’s nothing you can do. In IELTS writing and speaking, you must be prepared for a wide range of topics. I’m NOT saying this is you, but in the real test, you would be amazed at how many business students cannot discuss business ...

Re: May you please critique my task 2 writing?

Hi Hazem, (critique 12/4) Apologies for the late reply. In the main paragraphs you actually do not give YOUR opinion (supporters believe, other people refute). You give the general opinions of OTHER people, but not your own. Of course, giving the opinions of others is fine, but somewhere in the essa...

Re: I need your feedback in Task 2 essay!

Hi Aky, Sorry for the late reply. In the conclusion you say that you think it is up to the government (fair enough - no problem) but you don't say why NOT the individual. The money argument doesn't really work, because many people can afford healthy food or even gym membership. On YouTube there are ...

Re: Please evaluate my essay and suggests area of improvments

Hello! Actually, in China, the congestion that 'lasts days' really concerns trucks delivering goods, not people in their everyday lives. The introduction is longer than the first main paragraph and almost as long as the second. The odd-even system hasn't worked yet. Nor has the idea of increasing th...

Re: Please assess my IELTS Task 2 Essay and also provide the score.

Hello! Overall, a mediocre essay. The main problem is that the ideas in the two main paragraphs do not connect very well. I accept the points, but you fail to explain how, if the students are using the computers to get better knowledge of the world (paragraph 1), this results in being disconnected f...

Re: Please evaluate my essay

Hello! 1. The introduction is too long - longer than the first main paragraph. 2. Why WILL the facilities motivate people to do physical activities? (will = 100% for sure) 3. Creates curiosity? 4. People certainly should tire after doing vigorous exercise! (That's usually one of the purposes!) 5. "p...

Re: Please Asses My Task 2 GT. Thank You!

Hello! Overall, a good essay, but there are some obvious ways of improving it. 1. Why do so many candidates think that wild animals only live in forests? Go to YouTube and you'll see this is simply not true, particularly for fish and dolphins! (And cheetahs don't live in forests either!) 2. "loose t...

Re: GT letter, please assess my writing

Hello! This is a very good letter. The organisation is very clear and you have covered all the points well. Vocabulary and grammar are both very good and you have used a suitably friendly tone throughout. There are some obvious errors, including 'fulfill my demands' which is a phrase commonly used b...

Re: Please advice may exam next week

Hello! The points mentioned in the first main paragraph may be country specific, so you should say which country you mean. (There is no problem with referring to problems or situations in your own country.) The points you make are good and there is some good development. Vocabulary is good with some...
