Would you go to a doctor who didn't have a degree, and no experience?  I hope not, because it might kill you. It is similar with IELTS Preparation teachers. It seems new 'experts' are appearing every day, popping up like mushrooms. I normally don't put Chinese on this blog, but this time I will, because if you are thinking about preparing for the IELTS, it's very important for you to know exactly about the IELTS Test, and about me. The most important aspect of any IELTS teacher will ALWAYS be their quality, qualifications, and experience.

In IELTS Writing Task Two (the essay), you are asked to give 'examples from your own knowledge and experience'. This means that 'such as' is often used, but it is often used wrongly. We need to look at 'such as' closely. Here is the fourth of five ‘such as’ issues.

The instructions In the IELTS Writing Test for Writing Task Two (the essay) ask you to ‘give examples from your own knowledge and experience’. To do this, ‘such as’ is often used, but it is often used wrongly.

In IELTS Grammar Tip (3), we looked at collocation (putting words together in accepted patterns). One of these collocations is V+adverb (e.g. to carefully insert the needle). The following 10 sentences all have correct collocation of the verb with the appropriate adverb, but all of them are strange, unnatural, or just wrong. Can you see the problem?

So, right now I am writing in my pixnet ‘blog’ (= web + log), but it connects to my face book. My immediate thought is … what is the difference between the two? As far as I can tell, a blog is like a diary, while face book is like a magazine. But that raises the issue: the posts I have written for this pixnet blog (which is supposed to be a diary-type entry) go also to my face book ‘Andrew’s IELTS Stuff’ (which is supposed to be a magazine-type entry). So, how do I write my posts? Blog-style or magazine-style? Well, pixnet (which I am using now), which is meant to be the ‘diary’, actually has hard and solid IELTS tips, so it’s not really a diary at all. This means that I’m really mixing it all up, right?

Okay, here, in this post, I’ll write a true ‘diary’ type message, and, although it will go to the face book, ‘Andrew’s IELTS Stuff’, I’ll argue that it is still a text to read, and any reading text is preparation for the IELTS Reading Test [See my IELTS Reading Book, Tip One, Strategy Seven, p.6]. So, how can I get personal and diary-like here? What about talking about the cutest and most lovable human being in the world – obviously, my son, right?

Do you want to sound like this British 'gentleman'? Maybe you are being taught to speak this way. If so, you definitely need to read the previous post, and this one.

IELTS Grammar Tip (3): Collocation

The public version of the IELTS Writing Band Descriptors mention that an IELTS 7 writer shows an ‘awareness of style and collocation’. Collocation is the act of putting the right words together. For example, in Chinese, you can say …

Bad Trend (1) // About Pairwork: 2nd and final part

Continuing my response to the claim of many school and teachers here: ‘you don't talk to fellow students; you just talk to the teacher’, I can first say what I said in the 1st part – that it is a bad trend which will severely 'crash' your learning. All the evidence and research argues against this trend.
