Causative Verbs: Make, Have, Get

BY almio harjanto ON May31, 2017 
In IELTS writing, the very essential evaluation of your essay is grammatical range. We have to be aware that even a very simple grammar aspect is taken into account. The example of it is Causative Verbs.
Often times wewant to describe someone, or something makes us do something, or helps us to do it. In this case we need to use causative verbs. While it might seem like a daunting word, causative verbs are actually really easy to use.
a)      I made my brother carry my suitcase.
b)      I had my brother carry my suitcase.
c)       I got my brother to carry my suitcase.
Make, have and get express the idea that “X” causes “Y” to do something. When they are used as causative verbs, their meanings are similar but not identical.
In a): My brother had no choice. I insisted that he carry my suitcase.
In b): My brother carried my suitcase because I asked him to.
In c): I managed to persuade my brother to carry my suitcase.

Causative Make

d)      Mrs. Lee made her son clean his room.
e)      Sad movies make me cry.
Causative make is followed by the simple form of a verb, not using “to”.
Incorrect: She made him to clean his room.
Make gives the idea that “X” gives “Y”no choice.

Causative Have

f)       I had the plumber repair the leak.
g)      Jane had the waiter bring her some tea.
Causative have is followed by the simple form of a verb, not using “to”.
Incorrect: She made him to repair the leak.
Have gives the idea that “X” requests “Y” to do something.

Causative Get

h)      The students got the teacher to dismiss the class early.
i)        Jack got his friends to play soccer with him after school.
Causative get is followed by a to and simple form of a verb.
Get gives the idea that “X” persuades “Y” to do something.

Once we are well versed with the use of the explained above, we could definitely boost IELTS Test especially in writing.

The Duration Needed to Study for IELTS Preparation

In life, there are always obstacles which appear and need to be overcome so those in trials would emerge victorious. This type of understanding actually applies to every aspect in people’s lifestyle no matter what their background is. In respect of the mentioned case, the same point of view is necessary to be used in IELTS Preparation as well, especially when the participants need to achieve incredible score of IELTS. Nowadays, the basic instinct of most humans is procrastination, which is the dangerously infectious activity to delay every work or task using various excuses with a sole purpose of not doing it right away. Unfortunately, it is also quite common to find this epidemic disease affecting students and applicants who want to nail the IELTS test.

Based on a personal experience, it is always best for everyone to study three times every week consistently, regardless of the subjects. This positive awareness also needs to be applied to IELTS Preparation and the mentors in SpecTa Education know how paramount it is to always remind the students to study effectively for 2 – 3 hours every meeting, which should happen 3 – 4 times a week. Therefore, improvement in IELTS could only be attained when a participant studies regularly, but they also need to know that having a good rest for the body and brain is important for fast progress as well, due to the fact that studying hard without rest is ineffective. Last but not least, www.IELTSJakarta.com perpetually advises the candidates never to postpone their duties and responsibilities, no matter how troublesome their situation might be, because when there is a will, there is always a way.

Tips for Reading Test

IELTS Jakarta Preparation Programs helps students to prepare for their test by providing some strategies to tackle different types of questions given in the IELTS Test.

Here is some compilation of tips to help you do the IELTS Reading Test:
  • ·         In Academic Reading, begin by going quickly through each passage to identify features such as the topic, the style, the likely source, the writer’s purpose and the intended reader.
  • ·         Reading tasks sometimes have an example answer. Study it and decide why it is correct.
  • ·         As you read, don’t try to understand the precise meaning of every word or phrase. You don’t have time, and those parts of the text might not be tested anyway.
  • ·         Skimming is the quickest way of finding out what a text, or part of a text is about, and once you know the general subject, it is easier to read for detail.
  • ·         When you have to match headings to paragraphs, skim each paragraph in turn. Decide what the main point of the paragraph is, then find a heading that means the same thing.
  • ·         Scanning is the most efficient way of locating the information you need to answer exam questions. It is important to underline or highlight key words or phrases in the questions. This helps you to focus on the information you need to find in the text.
  • ·         Some tasks require you to use words from the text in the answer; in others, you should use your own words. Check the instructions carefully. The instructions may also include a word limit, e.g. use no more than three words. Keep to this by avoiding unnecessary words in your answer.
  • ·         In True/False/Not Given questions, use the questions to help guide you through the passage. Look for clues in the questions to find the correct part of the passage then read this section carefully.
  • ·         Numbers can be written using words or figures. A number or symbol counts as one word.
  • ·         Hyphenated words count as single words.

Best wishes of luck from IELTS Jakarta!

Alternatif Lain Dari Penggunaan Kata “Good” (Bagian 2)

Bosan menggunakan kata “good” dan tidak tahu harus menggunakan kata apa selain “nice”? Berikut adalah daftar kata-kata pengganti lainnya untuk melengkapi artikel sebelumnya di Bagian 1:
Exceptional” berarti seseorang atau sesuatu berada pada kondisi di atas rata-rata. Kata ini memiliki konteks yang cenderung formal sehingga cocok digunakan bila ingin terdengar canggih. Contohnya: “I think Indonesia is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. The scenery is exceptional.”
Terrific” dapat pula diartikan “very good” atau “great”, namun kata ini memiliki makna antusiasme sehingga hanya cocok digunakan untuk sesuatu yang sangat disukai. Misalnya saat mendeskripsikan hasil kerja seseorang, “I’m very happy that you did a terrific job on this project”. Namun, kata “terrific” juga dapat bermakna sangat buruk, tergantung pasangan kata bendanya, contohnya “terrific storm”.
Outstanding” menjelaskan suatu hal yang bersifat lebih menonjol dibandingkan yang lainnya. Misalnya “outstanding book” berarti buku tersebut lebih baik daripada buku-buku yang lain. Kata ini dapat digunakan baik dalam percakapan santai ataupun formal. Perlu dicatat bahwa “outstanding” juga dapat berarti belum terbayar, misalnya saat mengacu pada kata tagihan.
Kata “pleasant” mendeskripsikan sesuatu yang dapat dinikmati atau disukai. Kata ini dapat digunakan untuk menjelaskan orang, tempat, atau pengalaman. Kata ini dapat pula digunakan untuk menggantikan kata sifat “nice” yang memiliki makna tersirat bahwa suatu hal tersebut baik, tapi bukanlah yang terbaik. Contohnya: “We had a nice time at dinner. It was a very pleasant evening.”
Secara teknis, kata “awesome” merujuk pada sesuatu yang menimbulkan kekaguman. Namun, “awesome” juga dapat digunakan untuk hal lainnya yang sangat baik atau mengesankan, seperti “your new watch looks awesome”. Kata ini bermakna kekinian sehingga kurang cocok untuk kondisi formal.

Tentunya masih ada kata-kata lain yang dapat digunakan pula seperti kata “great”, namun setidaknya, rekan-rekan IELTSJakarta.com dapat segera move on dari kata “good” dan mengusahakan hasil penilaian vocabulary yang lebih baik pada IELTS Test. Be SpecTacular! ;)

Alternatif Lain Dari Penggunaan Kata “Good” (Bagian 1)

Rekan-rekan IELTSJakarta.com mungkin sering mengalami kesulitan dalam hal vocabulary sehingga terjebak mengulangi kata yang sama pada saat menjelaskan sesuatu. Hal ini umum terjadi pada saat Speaking Test dan sangatlah penting untuk dihindari. Artikel ini akan memberikan beberapa pilihan lain untuk menggantikan kata “good” supaya dapat membantu dalam IELTS Test.

Kata “excellent” digunakan untuk mendeskripsikan sesuatu yang sangat baik atau berkualitas tinggi. Hampir semua hal yang dapat diungkapkan dengan “good” dapat digantikan dengan “excellent”; biasanya tersirat penekanan bahwa hal tersebut tidak hanya baik, namun sangat baik. Jika ditanya “how are you”, dapat juga ditanggapi dengan “excellent”.

Wonderful” sama artinya dengan “great” atau “very good”. Berbagai hal dapat dideskripsikan dengan kata “wonderful”, termasuk orang, pengalaman, dan hal lainnya. Kata ini dapat digunakan baik dalam percakapan formal ataupun santai. Contoh penggunaannya: “She’s a wonderful person.”

Selain berarti dingin, kata “cool” juga dapat diartikan “very good” atau keren. Kata “cool” juga dapat digunakan untuk mengekspresikan persetujuan atas suatu usul, namun dalam konteks kekinian sehingga tidak terlalu cocok untuk percakapan yang terlalu formal. Misalnya, ketika diajak pergi menonton bioskop, bisa saja dijawab dengan “Cool! I’ll see you at 6pm”.

Kata ini mendeskripsikan sesuatu yang tak bercela atau cocok/pas dengan yang dibutuhkan. Hari yang menyenangkan dapat disebut “perfect day”, atau sebuah restoran bersuasana romantis dapat disebut “perfect for couples”. Menyetujui ide yang diusulkan juga dapat mengatakan “that’s sounds perfect”.

Fantastic” digunakan untuk mendeskripsikan sesuatu yang sangat baik atau menyenangkan. Kata ini dapat digunakan dalam konteks formal dan informal; memiliki makna positif dan antusiasme, sehingga harus diucapkan dengan adanya penekanan atau seruan. Contohnya: “My trip to Bali was fantastic!”

Masih ada kata-kata lain yang dapat dicoba pula, baca alternatif lainnya di artikel Bagian 2. Be SpecTacular! ;)
