Congratulations to the 2017 Winners!

There are two statements needed only. The background which introduces the issues in the essay question and the thesis which contains the main poitns (your answer). Anything more is a waste of words and a waste of time because it won’t help your score.
All the best

In the last body paragraph, I expanded my opinion which I included briefly in the introduction. I believe that children should make choices depending on their exact age.

Duke, Chinese Culture/Economics

In the second body paragraph (about the importance of decision-making by children on everyday issues), I stated that children learn how to be independent, as they are taught by experience and create their own personality. I presented an example of the way a child chooses to dress up, as clothes allow people to express themselves in a unique way.

1,200-2,500 words. 2-3 or more high-resolution photos strongly preferred.

Your main ideas are not off topic at all. You’ve organised your ideas and paragraphs very well. But some of your supporting points might less focused. For example, in your first body paragraph you are absolutely right to write about children becoming self absorbed which could continue into their adult life. This is relevant because the essay question is about a society of individuals. But your point about parents not being able to control them is not on topic – this is not about parental control, it’s about selfishness. Even with minor points lacking a bit of focus, it is still possible to hit band 7 in Task Response.

hello liz,Can i draft my essay tast 1 & tast 2 in all capital?

Thank you so very much! I will follow your guidelines.

Hi mam,
Its very helpful to see your videos. Now i have a question regarding introduction.
1. Do we have to write the only the paraphrase of the question whether the question is?
2. What we have to do if the question say about an argument directly like
“Governments should spend money on railways rather than roads. To what extent do you agree or disagree”
I write like this “Many people believe that government should pay a lot of money to improve our railways more than roads. I believe that’s the good idea to expand money to the railways not in the roads…”
is this type of introduction correct or not.
Mam please give some suggestions because i feel worried about writing.
