Re: Pleases evaluate my speaking (Leisure time)

Hello! I see that you have posted 2 topics. I appreciate the enthusiasm, but it's probably better to wait for an evaluation and then do a second set a few days or a week later. Fluency - Speech is a little slow and there are quite a lot of pauses and some repetition. This is clearly your weakest poi...

Re: [Task2] Please check this essay Thanks :)

Hello! Your points are very good! The development isn't great, but good enough. Vocabulary is very good, with some topic-specific items. The range of grammatical structures is wide, but there quite a lot of errors. However, these do tend to be with complex structures. I suggest cutting down the leng...

Re: Kindly evaluate writing task 1

Hello! This graph is a little tricky, but your report is quite good. You have a good summary, but the details are lacking. You definitely need more figures. I suggest taking each line in turn and leaving a comparison mainly for the summary. Vocabulary and grammar are both good. You use some good 'ch...

Re: Kindly evaluate task2 we go to work to earn a cash

Hello! Great question!!! First main paragraph - The first 3 sentences are wrong. Some people inherit a lot of money. Others rely on welfare. Then there is charity. The rest of the paragraph is, to me, a little incoherent. I'm not totally sure what you are trying to say ... or even which side of the ...

Re: can someone check my writing task 2

Hello! Overall, quite a good essay. The main problem is that you express yourself very simply. Your writing lacks adverbs of frequency and degree for example. Your points are good and developed to some extent. The range of grammar and vocabulary is good and mistakes are relatively infrequent. So, no...

Re: writing task 2

Hello! Ah, a classic question where almost everyone forgets one thing! Let's see how you do ... First main paragraph - good. A little more detail would be an improvement. Second main paragraph - Almost all candidates fail to provide a solid reason/example for the 'loss of culture'. You have at least...

Re: Please evaluate task2 (saving water) Thank you:)

Hello! Your points are basically reasonable, but I think that you need to develop them in a clearer way, for instance by using specific examples. One or two points are a little unclear and need clarification, e.g. how to reduce water use and are people really unaware of the cost of water? Vocabulary...

Re: Universities should accept equal numbers of male and female students in every subject

Hello! Overall, a reasonable essay. Your points are good. The development is reasonable, but a little repetitious and I think you would do better to use specific examples. The grammar is quite good, though I'd prefer to see a wider range of structures, e.g. conditionals. You do tend to use 'will' in...

Re: Kindly evaluate writing task 2

Hello! This is a good essay. A more personal conclusion would be better. Points are clear and developed. Organisation is also clear, with a good range of connectives used correctly. The range of vocabulary is very good, with some topic-specific items. However, the range of grammar is quite limited, ...
