You will need to develop your English until you are familiar with speaking English and have a range of vocabulary readily available to use. The only thing you can do is practice, practice and practice. Go through all common topics again and again until your answers come quicker and more naturally.

This is much better and is certainly a band 7. However, it not a case of making changes to main points and paragraphing to get 7.5. It get 7.5 you must have less grammar and vocabulary problems. You must work on your English language to achieve that score. Why don’t you try another essay title to see how you get on.

Good luck. Try to aim for accuracy in your English to reduce errors. And remember that having a clear meaning is more important than complex language if your English is not too strong.

Thank you so much for your beneficial website. I have taken IELTS exams several times, however, I could not achieve a bad score of over 6 in all of them in writing, providing that my score in speaking was 7.5. My English teachers believe that my writing level is high and I have should scored 7 and above.
Can I write an essay on the necessity of law in the first paragraph and talk about the importance of educating people the benefits of recycling in the second paragraph?
You need to understand that synonyms do not ever have 100% the same meaning. Each word in the English language is unique. Synonyms have similar meaning so each time you use a synonyms, you need to decide if it is appropriate for the topic. As the topic of “society” has already been introduced, the paraphrase of “communities” is fine.
An IELTS essay should be between 270 and 290 words more or less. Your introduction alone is around 90 words instead of 40 to 50. You’ve also included creative, imaginative ideas – spider and webs – this is inappropriate for an IELTS essay. You’ve clearly got good English but you won’t even hit 7 unless you learn the right techniques. I highly suggest you think of getting my opinion essay lesson to learn the right techniques:
Chomsky's theory is that there is a "pro-drop parameter"which is "true" in Spanish and "false" in English, and that once wediscover the small set of parameters that describe all languages, andthe values of those parameters for each language, we will haveachieved true understanding.
Much energy has been invested in trying to identify a concrete, flesh-and-blood male lover whom Dickinson is supposed to have renounced, and to the loss of whom can be traced the secret of her seclusion and the vein of much of her poetry. But the real question, given that the art of poetry is an art of transformation, is how this woman’s mind and imagination may have used the masculine element in the world at large, or those elements personified as masculine—including the men she knew; how her relationship to this reveals itself in her images and language. In a patriarchal culture, specifically the Judeo-Christian, quasi-Puritan culture of 19th-century New England in which Dickinson grew up, still inflamed with religious revivals, and where the sermon was still an active, if perishing, literary form, the equation of divinity with maleness was so fundamental that it is hardly surprising to find Dickinson, like many an early mystic, blurring erotic with religious experience and imagery. The poem I just read has intimations both of seduction and rape merged with the intense force of a religious experience. But are these metaphors for each other, or for something more intrinsic to Dickinson? Here is another:
And yes, it seems clear that an adultspeaker of English does know billions of language facts (for example, that onesays "big game" rather than "large game" when talking about animportant football game).
