When I read other tools for writing task 2, I saw that intro paragraph should have 3 parts, general statement, referal to the viewpoint in the question and my answer to the question. When I look at the this model essay, it does not have a general statement, it directly starts with viewpoint in the question. Which one is correct?
Thank you everyone!
But I have a question about personal pronouns.
Can we use personal pronouns in our essay.
For example, If I want to say, “We will get fat, if we eat too much junk food.”or should I write that as ” People will get fat, If they eat too much junk food”
Hi liz, thanks for the good work. In writing task 2 essays, can I have the main ideas in the introductory paragraph while they are developed in the body paragraphs?
I practiced this essay and faced some conflicts. So I partially agree and wanted to present a balanced view, however in writing I had a lot of points, for both positives and negatives in mind and considering word limit, I was not able to elaborate properly.
The other extreme is completely improvising on the day. This could be the method for you, if you’re great at English- given you’ve studied your texts thoroughly enough. I tried this approach during my trial exams, because I felt I really knew my texts inside and out – especially Citizen Kane (Mod B). I had studied some main ideas I thought were really substantial, did some practice essays, and went in to the exam open to writing anything without any solid notes. This preparation is not without its faults.
Absolutely not if you want band 9. You must use natural language, not phrases and sentences you have learned from an academic writing website or book. Never learn sentences to put in your essay. Each essay is written uniquely depending on the topic. Any learned sentences are not counted by IELTS. I strongly suggest you get at least one of my advanced lessons in writing task 2 so you understand not only the techniques but what IELTS is all about in terms of how it functions as a language test:
Hi Liz, just read all of your tips about to to write a good essay. I am aiming for a perfect band 9. I just wanted to inquire about how to structure my response when i am about to write a band 9 essay. Suppose if the question asks me ” to what extent do you agree or disagree?
can i say like ” In this paper, the author will look at a number of studies which show that both viewpoints are, to some extent,justified. and then talk about both viewpoints( 1 paragraph each) and give a conclusion at the end by partially agreeing to one side?
Thank you in advance for your response.

And if it says to what extend do you agree or disagree do can we present both sides and take one stand or can we take 2 stands.
But when I Try to write an essay. I find it difficult to write/frame related sentences.
