IELTS Test. At every IELTS Course standards of writing styles are simplified. The following are three of many guidelines for simplifying how your IELTS Writing can bring forth colossal IELTS Test result.
1. Minimize Personal Style
“Personal style” refers to treatment of specialized terminology and treatment of spelling, capitalization, numbers, or punctuation that differs from the norm. This individual writing habit should be dropped and or otherwise rectified. Some instances of house styles are as follows: spelling a word differently (for example, writing archeology instead ofarchaeology), capitalizing generic words (“The Company is dedicated to excellence”), using a numeral rather than spelling the number out (“We have 5 guiding principles”), or going against custom in formatting punctuation (for example, employing single quotation marks instead of double quotation marks).
2. Always Use the Serial Comma
Serial commas are often omitted in many publications especially those of journalistic-styled articles in magazines and/or newspapers. A serial comma is the last comma in a list such as “apples, oranges, and pears.” Deleting this punctuation will certainly complicate matters particularly when a list contains an element that includes a conjunction: “apples, oranges and tangerines and pears.” The sentence organization is unclear thus compromised. To make it clear and simple, always include a serial comma: “apples, oranges and tangerines, and pears.”
3. Capitalize Only When Necessary
Capitalizing comes only when there are proper names, and job titles before names. Generic abbreviations of entity names (“the company,” “the board,” “the department”) and references to concepts (“human resources”) are not proper names (though “Human Resources” is correct as the name of a specific department). Capitalization rules about art movements, medical and scientific terminology, geological and historical eras, and other scientific or cultural phenomena can seem (and sometimes are) arbitrary, so double-check reliable editorial resources.
