It 8767 s very true that it doesn 8767 t matter if your writing is subjective or not. The way you express your ideas and construct your writing matter.
I make searches on the internet to find pals or community of beginning writers but of no avail.
I believe I should look for people who read my essays and find their faults, and I ,in return, do the same for them, or pay them (paying I don 8767 t know if be possible, since I live in Iran and transactions are impossible.)
I took the ielts recently, and i forgot to paragraph the essay, and i only got a 7. Im repeating it now. Do you think that paragraphing alone will raise that 7 to a or an 8?
I 8767 d like to ask you the part of sentence 8775 because historically has immigration caused as many problems as it solves 8776 ,is it the same as 8775 because historically immigration has caused as many problems as it solves 8776 ?
Incidentally, the rubric was changed to put the emphasis on the task itself and to delete 8775 complicated 8776 language such as 8775 written argument 8776 . The idea is supposed to simple and the key to understanding the new rubric is that it explicitly asks candidates to be 8775 relevant 8776 in their examples and that these support the main points.

Absolutely not. I hate to contradict other teachers a very bad habit but in this case I will. The rubric to the essay question almost always contains these words:
Just start on the first line. But if you start on the second line, it doesn 8767 t matter. There are really no rules about this. You could even start on the third or fourth line. The examiner will expect to read the introduction first that 8767 s all you need to think about 🙂
You have not seen a close friend for a very long time. You also still have a few of your friend’s belongings that were left at your house the last time she visited. In your letter include:
· Why you are writing
· What you’ve been doing since you last spoke together
· Apologize for still having the items and ask how you can return them
First of all, many of the technologies we take for granted today were originated thanks to space research. Take satellite technology, for example, which we depend on for broadcasting and weather forecasting. Without satellites, we would not be able to follow global events as they happen, nor give populations any warning of approaching storms. Space research has also led to the development of new lightweight materials that offer us heat protection and enable food preservation. Therefore, the challenge of sending human beings into space has often driven the development of new technologies that benefit our everyday lives.
Hi Liz,thank you so much for your wonderful advice and video lessons. Must I give an example to back my point in the two body paragraphs of the academic writing task7? Should I give examples only when it is feasible?
Although I have seen your sample essays that all contain 7-8 body paragraphs, but still its confusing because you also mentioned that to increase the score 9-5 body paragraphs are required.
Hi, Liz! Can I use cursive writing in my writing tasks? I was told never to use that because examiners will have a hard time reading the paper. I tried writing in block letters, honestly, I am not comfortable. Feels like I am dwelling with my ideas and thoughts for the writing itself and as the way I write. 🙁
hlo dominic i do not get the ideas while writing an essay,what would you like to suggest to do thats why my essay is always too short and to make it bigger i repeat some lines in diffent way.
I am not at least at the time thinking about writing fiction or poetry, just writing practical things: good essays, powerful one-page writings, writings which express my meaning concisely, accurately and learnedly in one page. To do this I have pressured myself into finding books any trying to instruct myself, but it 8767 s not been enough There needs to be some people around to be like a community. Without it I lose track or forget or lose interest (you know the last time I tried doing this, bettering my writing was this time last year and I do not even remember what I wrote then.)
