Re: examine my essay

Hello! Basically, not bad, but you haven't really developed the ideas well or clearly. In particular it's not clear how you come to the conclusion that the benefits outweigh the costs. Vocabulary and grammar are reasonably good, but you haven't used them to create a good argument. All the best, David

Re: Please Assess my GT Writing Task 2

Hello!

Great question!

Most people? Really?

We need examples of the actresses. And the creams.

Overall, vocabulary and grammar are good, but the development of ideas is incomplete and it cannot be easily ascertained whether they are true or not.

All the best,
David

Re: Writing Task 2 can someone give me a feedback? thank you!

Hello!

Whoops! If what you wrote in the first main paragraph is true, then the conclusion must be false. If people cannot afford the technology ....

The range of grammar and vocabulary is good, but you have not created a good argument.

All the best,
David

Re: Task 2 importance of music and traditional music or international?

Hello! This is a standard answer to this question. Like other candidates, you have failed to provide any examples to support your opinion, thus making your essay a list of assertions that may or may not be true. Which basic skills? Which feelings? What culture? What traditions? Vocabulary is good en...

Re: kindly assess my task 1 many thanks!

Hello! All main points covered. Most of the report seems clear, though the second paragraph has severe grammatical issues. The vocabulary is often incorrect - owned, show, distribution, comment, supplement, appropriate, noticeable, highly required, admitted. So, overall, the main issues are with the...

Re: Please assess my writing task 2 and give some feedback. I will be profoundly grateful for you support.

Hello! You haven't really explained how your solutions will mean less work (or less demanding work) for students. Grammar is quite good - nice range and accuracy - but vocabulary isn't really used effectively to answer the question. In fact, it could be argued that all the extra project work and act...

Re: Task 2. Effects of global warming. Please evaluate

Hello! First main paragraph, second sentence - CO2 IS a greenhouse gas, so saying CO2 leads to more greenhouse gases ... That example does not demonstrate a 'tremendous' threat. (At the very least, you have missed out some other steps.) Therefore the following sentence is not logically coherent. Abs...

Re: Task 2. Transport topic. Please evaluate

Hello! Introduction - Is the subway 'agreed' as the most convenient form of transport? Why isn't is already more widely used? Why don't more people in cities with subways use them? The two main paragraphs basically raise the same point. I went to work using the subway in Beijing. I had to walk 30 mi...

Re: Task 2. Environment topic. Please evaluate

Hello! There are a few obvious problems with the arguments presented in this essay. 1. Essentially, the two points are the same. 2. You say 'the effectiveness of that suggested approach can be seen' but then ... nothing! What effectiveness? Global warming has not been reversed, according to the clim...
