And after all, just write “I agree” and give a list of solutions is not a ride. It is necessary to substantiate the significance of the problem: why, in fact, we should attend to this issue. This is usually written in the introduction. Further variations are possible depending on the task. Somewhere you need to talk about the causes and effects. In another form, an essay will ask us to write about problems and solutions. In the third to agree or disagree with the statement and competently justify their opinions. I am engaged with all students to whom the level allows.
Firstly, for educational purposes. Secondly, in order to learn a language (surprisingly))) Thirdly, you never know who one day will need to take the international English exam. And if not? To not give up! Read and self-educate! Give yourself a problem. For example, I am doing this thing with some students. I give some topic or question and ask to improvise a minute or two. Topics should not be academic. On the contrary, the more absurd they are, the better. Humor helps to reduce the degree of seriousness and responsibility. Like this: What does the sun give us? Why do people like sunny weather? It seems to be some kind of nonsense, but such an exercise greatly helps to develop the habit of not getting lost, courageously improvising and thinking out loud. And everything is not as simple as it seems. In all matters, it is necessary to compare the advantages and disadvantages, provide arguments for different points of view, analyze and substantiate something. Just what is useful in writing an IELTS essay. Has the topic been revealed? Have you brought arguments and examples?

Divided into logical paragraphs? Used phrases-signals, leading the reader from one thought to another? Is academic style? Have you used advanced and relevant vocabulary? Grammar? Do you use text connectivity? Avoid replays? So, it is very difficult to write an IELTS essay if you don’t know what is wanted of you and how you will evaluate it. And if the criteria are in the public domain, then learning to follow them is another matter. A matter of practice. Naturally, to study English!)))
