I don’t understand when i should present only my opinion and when to present both sides
For example in the above essay the questiom was ” to what extend do you agree?”
But the model answer he gave the point of view but also discussed both advantages and disadvantages.
It is not possible to learn sentences and put them into your essay. The examiner is trained to spot learned phrases and they will not be accepted. To get band score 6, you must have band score 6 English. This is ultimately a language test, you must have the level of English suitable to the score you want to achieve. My recommendation is to improve your level of English so you can write complex sentences without too many errors. Learn ideas to apply but not fixed sentences.
All the best
Your website is very useful and had brought about a lot of positive impact on my performance. However, I’d like to inquire whether it is advisable to use “It is considered by many that..” or “some people claim” or the use of statistics as examples in opinion essays
Firstly, I want to thank you for putting up this website. I will be taking my exam this May and I find your website very useful and easy to understand. I do have a question on the introduction of the model essay, I’m confused as when to use however in a sentence. I know it is a linking word used to contrast but from the paragraph above, is it applicable to use however? In my understanding, however is used to disagree with the first statement which is “Social networking sites, for instance Facebook, are thought by some to have had…” In this case disagreeing with it means that your opinion is that you don’t agree with the first sentence but at the end of the paragraph, you stated that you are agreeing with the statement. Shouldn’t we omit the word however instead?
some times I confuse in detect the topic in opinion essay, for example in this question:
(Due to the development and rapid expansion of supermarkets in some countries, many small, local business are unable to compete. Some people think that the closure of local business will bring about the death of local communities.). I have confused if the topic is (inability of local business to compete) and other information is supporting or it is (closure of local business will bring about the death of local communities) , so how can I identify the main topic in such question ?
Thanks a bundle
