Re: IELTS Task 2 - Unhealthy eating

Hello! The basic arguments are valid, though you do make the classic error or confusing pre-prepared food with unhealthy food, which is not always true. Grammar and vocabulary are generally good. The only other issue is that the main paragraphs are quite short and lack development. All the best, David

Re: Please asses my task 2 essay

Hello! I'm always skeptical of the 'more awareness' argument. I mean, is there any adult in the developed world who has not heard of global warming? No? Then that kinda destroys your first main paragraph. Cleaning up plastic will do nothing - nothing! - to combat global warming. Hence, both main par...

Re: Please asses my Task 2 discussion essay :)

Hello! A lot of this essay doesn't make sense. The first paragraph is completely contradicted by the conclusion, so which is true or correct? The second main paragraph doesn't really answer the question. The ranges of grammar and vocabulary are the main problems. Ideas are expressed very simply, wit...

Re: task 2. museums

Hello! Overall, a reasonable essay. The points are clear, though you tend to the extreme. Perhaps the purpose of the entry fee is PARTIALLY to cover costs. Vocabulary is good with some topic-specific items. Points have some development and good examples. Grammatical range is limited, though accuracy...

Re: Please evaluate my Speaking Task-3

Hello! Fluency - Quite a lot of pauses. Speech is often quite slow as a result Coherence - Good use of a range of connectives Vocabulary - Not much detail in the answers. There is also a contradiction between some answers, e.g. sharing personal problems, so meaning is unclear Grammar - Good basic gr...

Re: Discuss both views essay

Hello!

The conclusion is not personal ... and is actually not very clear, particularly since it completely dismisses the points made in the first main paragraph.

Grammar tends to be simple and use of conditionals, modals and adverbs is limited.

All the best,
David

Re: Please evaluate my graph

Hello! revere? outraced? You do not mention enough of the data, so there is a lack of detail. However, you have got the main trends. The range of grammar is limited (although you have correctly used the past tense!). Overall, reasonable, but more detail and a wider range of grammar would make this a...

Re: [TASK 2] Evaluate my essay please thank you :)

Hello!

Drugs and medicines ARE tested on people.

Overall, not bad, but some sentences are very long and would be clearer if divided into shorter ones. some vocabulary is used incorrectly, but generally meaning is clear.

All the best,
David

Re: Please evaluate my essay (task 2)

Hello! The introduction is only a little shorter than the main paragraphs. This indicates that the main paragraphs are not well-developed. The argument about crime may be valid, but it doesn't really explain why people would still expose themselves to it by working in cities. It also doesn't relate ...

Re: Repost Task 2- Without the success of career, life becomes meaningless

Hello! I think the key thing to note is that you have not referred in detail to any other forms of success apart from at work. In the first paragraph, you seem to be focusing on a very select group of people. Do you mean that everyone who doesn't achieve fame is a failure? I don't think that vocabul...
