Have you seen the name of my blog? ALL MY GOOD THINGS? I have so many Good Things in my life that I can be thankful for! I want to challenge you to join me for the entire month of November in a campaign of Thankfulness.
Thanks a lot for all the valuable info posted in the site.
I have a question regarding thesis statement and have mentioned below.
While answering advantage and disadvantage essay would it be fine to write the thesis statement in the following way,
This essay will argue that remote working is clearly beneficial in many cases. It will show how the main advantage is time for yourself and will discuss how a possible downside is isolation.
If you haven’t had training in presenting a partial agreement, then it’s better to choose one side. Making a mistake with the way you present your opinion could seriously affect your score. For this reason, my advanced lessons about opinion essays is 1 hour long – this is the only way to avoid such complications:
I am thankful for all that my family has done for me and all the technology that they have provided me. I am most grateful for the food we have and my music. If I didn’t have music than my life would be different because I listen to music in the car, at home, doing activities, doing homework, and when I go to bed. But above all I am grateful for everything that people have done for me.
Hello, Liz and everyone who follows this awesome blog. I have a question which is really important to be answered, either by Liz or anyone who can offer me some help.
Yesterday I wrote an essay on the following topic:
“Some people believe that allowing children to make their own choices on everyday matters (such as food, clothes and entertainment) is likely to result in a society of individuals that only think about their own wishes. Other people believe that it is important for children to make decisions on matters that affect them. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion”.
Hi Liz, I did my exam tod2ay but I am worried. For my essay paragraphs, I made sure the paragraphs ended at the middle of the line.
However I did not indent or leave a blank space. It’s very obvious that it’s a different paragraph but no space and indentation. Would I be penalised for this? Should I forget it and just write another ielts?
Your main ideas are not off topic at all. You’ve organised your ideas and paragraphs very well. But some of your supporting points might less focused. For example, in your first body paragraph you are absolutely right to write about children becoming self absorbed which could continue into their adult life. This is relevant because the essay question is about a society of individuals. But your point about parents not being able to control them is not on topic – this is not about parental control, it’s about selfishness. Even with minor points lacking a bit of focus, it is still possible to hit band 7 in Task Response.
Each paragraph should have a central theme , a central topic. In an opinion essay, each paragraph contains one main point for your view with supporting points. In a advantage/disadvantage essay, each paragraph has a central theme – advantages in one paragraph and disadvantages in the other. Body paragraphs for writing task 2 should be reasonably balanced in length – unlike task 1 where they can be of different lengths. See the model essays for task 2 on this page:
And now, here comes my question: are those ideas off-topic? I have not presented them the way I did in my essay (as I know that Liz does not comment on writing anymore). But, do they seem irrelevant, at a first glance? I am really concerned about this and I would appreciate a reply, either by Liz or whoever could help me. Thank you in advance, and I apologise for the long post.
There are too many times that I focus on the negative and feeling sorry for myself. (Maybe you focus on the bad & negative too?) What I really need to do is stop and look around and see all the Good Things in my life! There are so many. How many Good Things can you name? Can you see 10? 15? 30? Let’s challenge each other to be thankful and to shout it out!
