Going Over the Word Limit --> IELTS Course Jakarta Utara

In IELTS Writing Test, one of the important requirements that should be fulfilled by the participants is writing with the required length and certain amount of words. IELTS Writing Task 1 will ask you to accomplish writing of a report or letter with the length of at least 150 words, while Writing Task 2 will ask for a 250-word-minimum essay.
When doing writing, part of answering the question correctly is actually by having at least the minimum word count limit. The examiner will count every word, so do not think you can get away with just writing around 150 words of Writing Task 1, for instance. It must be more or you will lose marks.
During the international IELTS Test, you will not have time to count how many words you have written. Here are some tips to avoid writing insufficiently:
·         The best thing to do is practice with the official IELTS exam paper and count how many words you write on that. You will then be able to see how much of writing 150 or 250 words looks like.

·         Try to write about 10% over 150 words for a report and 250 words for an essay when you are practicing. By doing this, it will help you to secure the limit number in the exam.

·         Plan your writing before you start. Having an outline of your writing before starting will help you a lot in managing the length of your writing. It is always good to know when to add some more sentences and when to stop giving too much explanation.

·         Providing examples in your essay will definitely boost your word count. However, you need to make sure that your examples are necessary to support the explanation. In the end, it is not smart to put examples that are redundant with your explanation.

·         Do not repeat words or phrases. One thing you should avoid is aiming to write long by repeating your sentences or adding irrelevant information in order to make a longer writing. If you have to extent the writing and you are out of ideas already, the one thing that you can try is paraphrasing certain main ideas from your body paragraphs in the conclusion. Do avoid adding new information in the conclusion part as it will damage the purpose of the paragraph.

Tackling True, False, Not Given Questions --> IELTS Course Near Kebon Jeruk

IELTS Reading Test will have several types of question given to assess our skill in understanding passages. One of the possibilities is ‘True, False, Not Given’ question, which requires you to identify if information in a text is true or not in comparison to a number of factual statements.

Here are some tips to tackle these questions:
·         Read the instructions carefully and make sure you know if it is a TRUE/FALSE/NOT GIVEN or YES/NO/NOT GIVEN question. TRUE/FALSE/NOT GIVEN questions deal with facts. YES/NO/NOT GIVEN questions deal with opinion.
·         Ignore anything you already know about the topic and don’t make assumptions. You should answer based on the text only.
·         Read all the statements carefully. You should try to understand what the whole sentence means rather than simply highlighting keywords.
·         Don’t skim and scan the text to find the final answer. You will have to read the appropriate part of the text very carefully in order to understand what the author means.
·         Don’t look for words that exactly match those in the statements. You should also look for synonyms. Remember that you are matching meaning, not words.
·         Focus on the statement and carefully read the matching part of the text to establish if it is true or false. The meaning should exactly match that of the statement if it is true. Underline the words that give you the answer, this will help you focus and you can check back later.
·         Identify any words that qualify the statement, for example some, all, mainly, often, always and occasionally. These words are there to test if you have read the whole statement because they can change the meaning.
·         Be careful with verbs that qualify statements, such as suggest, claim, believe and know.
·         On most question sets, answers are in the same order they appear in the text. Just keep on reading.
·         If you can’t find the information you are looking for, then it is probably ‘Not Given’. Don’t waste time looking for something that is not there.
·         Also, if you have no idea what the answer is put ‘Not Given’. You probably have no idea because the answer is not there.
·         There will be at least one of all three answers. If you don’t have at least one ‘True’, ‘False’ or ‘Not Given’, then you have at least one answer wrong.

As the continuation of article before about Guide to IELTS Letter Writing (Part 1), here are additional suggestion that certainly need to be considered in order to improve your letter writing :) 

4.       Open and close the letter correctly
Open a formal and semi-formal letter with a formal sentence. Don't try to be friendly, as you do not know the person you are writing to. Get right down to business and indicate the reason you are writing.

Dear Sir/Madam,
I am writing to inquire about…/I am writing with regards to...
Dear Mr. Smith,
I am writing to inform you.../I am writing in connection with...
End with: Yours faithfully/Yours sincerely

Open an informal letter with a general, friendly paragraph. We have a broader relationship in the context of which the communication is taking place. So it is best to acknowledge that friendship first.
Dear John,

How are you doing? It was such a pleasure to see you again last summer. We sure had a great time catching up with each other after so many years. You have always been a cherished friend of mine.
Anyway, the reason I'm writing is that I have some good news—I am getting married this summer...
End with: Best regards/Warm wishes

5.       Learn and use standard written phrases and the correct spelling of commonly used words
In conventional letter writing, we actually use a number of standard expressions and phrases and add on to them the specific information we wish to communicate. By learning how to use these expressions, you will find the task much easier. You can also prevent yourself from losing marks by learning the correct spelling of commonly used words and expressions which you are likely to use in the test.

6.       Stay on topic and make sure you write at least 150 words
IELTS Letter Writing does require you to make up a bit of a story to complete your letter, but don't make it so complicated that you run out of time. Stick to the point and write the required amount of words within 20 minutes. It is essential to include all three bulleted points. If you exclude one of the points given in the question prompt, you will lose valuable marks. You will also lose marks if you write less, but not if you write more; the only restriction on writing more is in terms of time, not the number of words.

The first task in IELTS Writing Test for General Training (GT) module is writing a letter. Here are some tips compiled for IELTSJakarta.com to guide you to achieve the best test result.

1.       Read instructions carefully
You will be given instructions and three points to include in your letter. The instruction tells you about the purposecontent, and recipient of your letter. Moreover, it is essential that you use the three points to structure your letter and provide foundation for the information.

2.       Identify the main purpose of the letter
Letters can be based on different content which will affect the style of the letter. Are you asking for help, apologizing, inviting someone, complaining or thanking someone? Learn appropriate and polite expressions that will support what you need to say.

3.       Identify the type of letter 
The entire tone of your letter is based the type of letter. Adjust your style and choice of words according to the type you have been asked to write. There are three types of letters in the IELTS: a formal letter, a personal/informal letter, or a semi-formal letter.

 Formal letters: writing to someone you don’t know. If you have never met the person before and you don’t know their first or last name, then you should use a formal style. You should definitely use a formal tone for letters of application and when making complaints. Formal styles allow us to sound respectful and professional; however, if we use this tone with someone we know it can often sound cold or unfriendly.

Personal letters: writing to someone you know very well. If the person is a friend then you should use an informal style. With people we know well, we don’t need to sound too formal and the letter should have a relaxed tone.

Semi-formal letters: writing to someone you don’t know well. Semi-formal is often the one that confuses people. Semi-formal is used when you know the name of the person, but it is within a professional or official context. Imagine writing a letter to a colleague or someone from a different company you know. If you write in a formal style it will sound unfriendly, but informal might sound disrespectful. In this situation we should use a semi-formal style.
