IELTS Reading: Read faster & remember more
 
05:21
On the IELTS Reading section, you have 60 minutes to read 3 different text passages (2200–3000 words) and answer 40 questions! That's CRAZY!!! To do well on the IELTS Reading, whether General or Academic, you NEED to be able to read quickly, and you NEED to be able to quickly identify important information. In this video, I'll share with you some of my tips on speed reading and also some tricks on how to quickly find the most important details in a paragraph. Your road to BAND 9 starts here!

IELTS READING: TRUE, FALSE, NOT GIVEN: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNyLs7YWFL8 5. IELTS READING: TOP 10 TIPS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PDgVEhfKso TRANSCRIPT Oh, what a great book. Thank you, Jessica Whitehead. Are you doing an IELTS exam or will you be doing an IELTS exam in the future? Special shoutout to Pedro, thank you for helping me on this, and rock your exam. You're going to do it, boy. If you're studying IELTS, there's one section in the test that is difficult. They're all difficult, but it's the reading section. So, when you're doing your test, you have to read the passage quickly, you have to get all of the wonderful information, and then you have to answer the questions. So, what I want to help you do is something really cool called speed reading. When I was in grade 2, my teacher taught me something that was amazing. Usually when you read something, you take your little finger and you read along like this. So my teacher taught me at the young age of eight to get a bookmark, and instead of reading each word, you're going to read one whole sentence with an eyescape. So, instead of reading word by word with your little finger, you're going to put a bookmark on the sentence and you're going to focus on the sentence. This allows you to read something much faster. So, put your little finger away and grab a bookmark or a piece of paper. So, number six is: Use a bookmark. It helps you absorb the information faster. Another thing that you can do or not do is when you're reading: "The pizza was a wide pizza with ham and pineapple. It was the most exiting flavours, it was..." Don't read out loud. Two reasons: One, there're other people around you that you're probably disturbing, and there's probably been a scientific study that if you move your lips, you're doing extra work and you're kind of wasting time. Try and close your mouth. Don't: "Ra-ra-ra-ra" under your breath, don't move your lips. Just absorb it and read it. This helps you go through it faster and ultimately get that high score that you've all been looking for. Another tip is to pay attention to important key words. So, these are going to be things like dates and times, numbers, and proper nouns. So, please tell me you know what a proper noun is. A proper noun is a place or a person. It starts with a capital letter. So, one really, really good thing you can do is you can take your little highlighter and circle the important words. When you come back to the reading section or when you've read it, it sticks in your brain more. This is good for practicing, too. Some articles and some things have special punctuation. So, dashes. Dashes are a little line here and a little line at the end. There's a very, very good reason why they've used dashes, and that is they're telling you that this information is really important. It's giving you something extra or something that changes the idea about the sentence. So, the information between dashes or even between commas is put there for a reason, and it's probably got some wealth of information, maybe the answer to question number seven. Some readings that you have not necessarily on IELTS, but a newspaper if you're reading something for fun... Do people read for...? Yeah, they do read for fun, Ronnie. Okay. Is a special font. So, if the words are bold which means they're bigger; or if they're written in italics which means, like, handwriting; or if the words are underlined - this is going to give you some really strong information that it's important because they made it like this. When you first begin your IELTS test in the reading section, always read the questions first, then you'll know what information you're looking for. If you just read it willy-nilly without thinking about the questions, you've wasted a lot of time. So read the questions first, then go back and get the information that you need. And about paragraphs, this is a tricky thing that they do. I want you to read the first sentence, it's called the topic sentence. The topic sentence has... We'll say "the meat" or the importance of the paragraph. […]

Band 3.5 – IELTS Speaking test sample – Part 3 (Harry)
 
04:22
What speaking ability does a score of IELTS Band 3.5 represent? Watch this Speaking test sample, where Harry from Vietnam talks about 'An interest or hobby you enjoy'. Here's why this performance was given a Band 3.5: "This test taker is unable to keep going without noticeable pauses as he searches for language. His speech is slow with frequent repetition and self-correction and there are some breakdowns in coherence. He links some ideas but can only use simple connecting words (so; because). Vocabulary is this test taker’s strongest feature and allows him to talk about topics familiar to him. However, it is sufficient for only limited discussion of unfamiliar topics (balance; relax; salary; ability; free time for chatting; rely on drinking – it’s not good for society or people’s health). Some ideas are repeated (good for their health). His grammatical control is weak. Some simple sentence forms are produced fairly accurately (has more ability to meet others; may be more developed) and he sometimes attempts more complex forms. Subordinate clauses, however, are rare, turns are short and errors frequent. He uses a very limited range of pronunciation features. His problems with hesitations and false starts have a serious impact on his ability to produce connected speech and there is little evidence of control of stress and intonation. However, it is his production of individual sounds which causes greatest strain to the listener. Final consonants are often not pronounced (becau(se); balan(ce); li(ke); heal(th)), and some are incomprehensible without context (wishen for ‘question’). Understanding requires considerable effort and there are patches of speech that cannot be understood. This test taker’s vocabulary is stronger than other features of his performance, but his pronunciation is poor, restricting his rating to a Band 3.5."

IELTS – 3 Reading Strategies
 
16:51

In this lesson, you will learn three approaches to the IELTS Reading section and their pros and cons. The goal of this lesson is to help you finish the test on time without compromising your understanding of the readings. Learn how to read less while answering more questions correctly. After watching, make sure to do the quiz to test your understanding. Good luck on your test! https://www.engvid.com/ielts-3-reading-strategies/ https://www.GoodLuckIELTS.com/ https://www.writetotop.com/ WATCH NEXT IELTS Writing: The 3 Essay Types https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJ-Vyqxn1To TRANSCRIPT Hi again. Welcome back to www.engvid.com. I'm Adam. Today's lesson is about IELTS. As usual, with IELTS lessons, I will be speaking a little bit faster than normal. It's good for your listening practice. But if you're not taking the IELTS, you can still listen and try to follow us as we go through this section. So, let's begin. Today, I'm going to look at the IELTS reading section. I'm going to look at three different approaches to tackling the IELTS reading section. Students always ask me: "What should I do with the reading? How do I do it? How can I finish on time? How can I answer more questions?" Right? So I'm going to give you three approaches, three different ways to try to do the IELTS. Okay? We're going to look at three different ways. They're completely different from each other. The most important thing I want to tell you before we start: you have to know what works for you. Okay? One of these approaches will work for you; the others may not. Practice all three. If you're comfortable with one and it seems to work for you, and your score seems to be getting better, stick with that one and practice that one. Don't try to do all three each time. Figure out which one works, and just practice that one the most. Okay? The most obvious one and the first one we're going to talk about: read the entire passage, and then tackle the questions. Now, a few things to say, good and bad, about this approach. So, you have 20 minutes, let's say, that you're going to start from the first passage, you're going to do about 17 minutes; the second passage, you're going to spend 20 minutes; the last passage, you're going to spend 23, 24, 25 minutes. So, you have to do this very fast. So: can you read the entire passage and do the questions in that timeframe? Okay? That's the question you must ask yourself. Are you a fast reader? Can you comprehend everything you're reading? How is your vocabulary? Things like this. Some people, they must read everything, from beginning to end, and then go to the questions. But they can also keep; they can retain the information they've read, so when they go to the questions, they know where to go back and look for the answers. Now, the good part about this is that you have all the information in your head once you've read the entire passage. The bad part is that you're going to be reading the passage twice. Okay? Or not the whole passage, but you're going to read big chunks of the passage twice. You'll have read it the first time, you'll go to the questions, and then you'll be reading again to find the answers, because you're looking for specific words now. When you get to the questions, sometimes it's only one word difference from what you read in the passage. So, do I recommend this? Yes and no. If you're a fast reader and you can comprehend, then yes, do that. If you're not a fast reader, then no, don't do this. You'll be wasting too much time and reading more than you need to. What I'm going to do with these two approaches is show you how to read less. So you don't need to read the entire passage; you just need to read the areas that contain the answers to the questions. So, the second approach: go straight to the questions. You look at the question. First of all, understand the type of the question. Is it a multiple choice? Is it a fill-in-the-blank, like a summary? Are you looking for like headings for each paragraph? Are you looking for the title? Etc. Figure out what you're looking for, read the question carefully, pick out the keywords in the question or the key idea in the question, and then scan the passage. Don't read the passage. Just quickly look everywhere for where that information ought to be.
IELTS Writing: Numbers and Pie Charts

My name is Emma, and in today's video, I am going to talk a lot about the IELTS test, specifically writing task one. I'm going to teach you about a certain thing you might see on the IELTS, and that's a pie chart. I'm going to explain what a pie chart is, and ways to talk about pie charts in order to improve your vocabulary mark for the IELTS. Many students get really, really confused when they see graphs on the IELTS, and they get really confused trying to talk about numbers, specifically. So, in this video, I'm also going to talk about: How do we describe numbers when we're looking at pie charts? How do we describe percentages? You know, and how can we make our vocabulary very varied? Okay? So, let's get started. The first thing I want to do is talk about: What is a pie chart? So, I have here three different types of graphs. Three different graphs you might see on the IELTS, in the writing section, in the very first part of the writing section. Okay? You might see a picture like this, like this, or like this. So, one of these looks like a pie, something you eat. Which one do you think looks the most like pie? If you said this one, you are correct. This is what we are going to be talking about today. We can call it either a "pie chart" or a "pie graph". Both are correct. You might also see this one, this one is called a line graph; or you might see this, which is called a bar graph. So, let me write that on the board. So, "pie chart", "line graph", and "bar graph". You might also see a process, a diagram, or maybe even a table on the IELTS. But for today, we are only going to be focusing on pie charts. Okay, so what is a pie chart? A pie chart shows us percentages. Okay? So, if we look down here, I have here what I spend my money on. Okay? I want you to imagine each month, all the money I make, all my salary, this is what I spend it on. I spend some of it on rent, I spend some of it on food, I spend some of it on transport or transportation, and I spend some of it on fun. Okay? So, on the IELTS, you might have to describe something like this. It might be more complicated. Sometimes you might actually have two pie graphs or pie charts that you might have to compare and describe, but in this case, let's start out a little bit easier. So, I want you to imagine you're writing the IELTS, and you've been told to describe this pie chart. What are you going to say about it? Okay? Well, the very first thing you should do is you should think about: What does it all mean? And by that, I mean: Think about how much percent is each thing? Okay? So, for example, for cost of living, how much is this? What size does this look like? Although we can't be sure, because I'm not the best artist and this is not a perfect circle, I would say this is about 50%. Okay? And this, what does it look like to you? Maybe 25%. So, food is around 25%. Transport we might say... Let's say 15%. And fun, maybe 10%. Although, we're not sure. So, on the IELTS you might see something like this. You might actually have the percentages written, so you already know what it is, or you might actually have numbers. Okay? So, this might actually be money, and so it might actually say, like, $500 to rent, $200 to food, and so forth. Okay, but the first thing to do is really think about: What are the percentages, here? Okay, so to begin a sentence when we're talking about the pie chart, these are three different sentences that are very great... Really, really good sentences to use on the IELTS when you're talking about pie graphs. The first one is: "According to the chart", you can also say: "We can see from the chart", or "We can see from the pie chart", "The chart shows that", okay? So these are good ways to open up the sentence, and then to actually talk about what you see here.

Improve your Writing: Show, Not Tell
 
06:08
Become a better writer, no matter what you're writing! I'll show you how to take simple, boring sentences and turn them to vibrant, expressive writing. As you practice this technique in your writing, you will find it carries over to your everyday spoken English as well. Before you know it, you'll be a more dynamic, compelling speaker and writer. Next, watch this video to improve your vocabulary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxjsWwgPjwM Take the quiz on this lesson at: https://www.engvid.com/english-writing-show-not-tell/ TRANSCRIPT Welcome back to engVid. Here we are with a writing lesson. We are looking at the skill of showing, not telling, and it's going to transform your writing as long as you put it into practice afterwards. "Show, not tell. What's he talking about?" When we're writing we want to avoid simple statements that don't really add any description or flavour. For example: "The man was stressed." [Snores] Boring. Instead, I want you to paint a picture, I really want you to describe the man is stressed without telling me that he is. So how can you do that? We're kind of trying to avoid this word, and describe it instead. So what's he doing? "The man was fidgeting. Ah, he's fidgeting. He's so stressed, he can't sort of stay still. And biting his nails." Okay? So pick out a couple of details that show how the person was. Next one: "The room was messy." Again, it's a simple, simple sentence. It's just one sort of main clause and it's not very interesting. Much better to describe the items in the room that make it messy. For example: "There was a leftover pizza, dirty clothes were strewn"... I'll write that word for you. That means they were covering the floor. "...and there were dirty plates and cups". Okay? These details give us the idea that it is messy. Example three: "The woman was confident." Okay, but it would be much more effective if you described how she was confident. So, how does she move? How do other people react to her? "She strode", that means she walked, but with purpose. Okay? So I've picked an interesting verb. "She strode into the room, and everyone turned their heads to notice her." Okay? Much clearer, more vivid idea of confidence than just saying she was confident. Example four: "The boy was careful." Tell us how he was careful. "He placed his favourite magazine in the top drawer of his cabinet." Okay? So we need to say exactly what he is placing, the object there has been missed out. "He placed"... There's no room for me to write it. You get the idea, he places his favourite book or magazine, and look how specific it is: "the top drawer of his cabinet". Next example: "The stadium was full." Again, I'm bored with this simple sentence construction. We need to make it more interesting. "The sound from the stadium was deafening", okay? And then give us some main action perhaps: "The sound from the stadium was deafening as the crowd rose up to chant the player's name." Okay? Give the sense that the stadium is full from what you can see and what you can hear. Okay? A couple of ones to describe weather. "It was hot." Okay? Well, a very young child could write a sentence like that, so if you're sort of a teenager or an adult, it's time to raise the bar. How can we tell that it is hot? Well: "The sun was causing damage to", "The sun was melting", "The sun was burning", "The sun was causing the lady's skin to turn red". Okay? Pick out details that show the effect. "It was cold. It was cold." How do we know it was cold? How cold did it feel? What can you see? "Drainpipes were freezing, ice was as thick as"... I don't know. "It was three inches thick." Whatever, you've got to show details rather than just stating things. -"It was windy." -"The umbrella was totally bent out of shape. The umbrella"-you know for keeping the rain off us-"was totally"-that means fully-"bent"-Yeah? Bent-"...out of shape", out of its normal position. "He found it funny." Right? How funny did he find it? Okay? Better to... For us to get the idea to picture what he was doing: "He was rolling around the floor in hysterics." Okay? When you're so... Find something so funny, you're like: [Laughs]. Okay? He can't control his body he finds it so funny. "Hysterics", that means like totally lost control. "Hysteria". Okay? Hysterics. "In hysterics" means finding something really, really funny. "The castle was captured." Right. I want to get a sense of drama. I want to imagine what's happening there at the castle. Is the king having his head cut off? Are the new army marching in? What's happening? "The new flag was hoisted up on high, greeted by a cheer from the crowd." Okay? Paint pictures, pick out details. Okay? It's good to have a range of adjectives, but how can you show those adjectives? How can you describe them instead? Thank you for watching today's video. Have a go at the quiz after this, and I'll see you very soon. Remember to subscribe. Bye.
IELTS Speaking: The Secret Method
 
08:17
To get a good level in your IELTS Speaking, you need to speak MORE! That means you need to extend your answers. In this quick lesson, I'll give you an easy way to make simple sentences into more complex, impressive ones by using RELATIVE CLAUSES. If you're not taking the IELTS, you can still use this method to take your spoken English to a higher level. http://www.engvid.com/ielts-speaking-the-secret-method/ http://www.GoodLuckIELTS.com/ TRANSCRIPT Hi, there. Welcome to EngVid. Today, we are looking at how to maximize your points on IELTS speaking tests, in particular one and three. I'm going to be giving you some very valuable tips for how to make the most and how to do your very best in these tests. So what do you need to do? You need to answer with a little bit more detail. You need to extend your answers a little bit, okay? Answer the question that they ask. Okay. It doesn't matter if you prepare something and they don't -- they ask a question that your answer is no good for, drop it. You have to make an effort to answer their question. Now, today, we're going to be looking at using some relative pronouns and some relative adverbs to lengthen out your sentences a little bit, okay? So extending your answers, answering the question. As you may be aware, IELTS speaking tests one and three, they're particularly looking for you to give information about yourself, to tell people about yourself, okay? So I'm saying that these pronouns and adverbs are going to be particularly helpful. So these pronouns you put in the middle of sentences to continue the sentence and give a bit more. So you'd use "who" to describe people. "The person I met who is a shopkeeper" -- "The person I went to school with who is now a famous movie star" -- okay? So "who", when you're giving more information about the person, okay, who's doing something, who's the subject. Okay? You can also use "whom", but it's not so common. "Whom" would be the indirect version of this, someone who's not doing something. Now, you'd use that when you're describing things. Okay? "I went to Bath on Saturday. That was a fantastic place to visit." Okay? So I'm describing the activity of going to a place. Okay? Bath itself. So? So it's a proper noun. "Which" I can throw in there when I want to also describe things in a sorted of non-defining clause sense. "The film which I saw on Saturday was really good." Okay? You can get some more information on this on another one of our videos. "Whose" when I'm describing a possession. So, "The car I drove whose owner was Charlie" -- okay? So I'm describing an element of possession. Okay? Now, looking on to the relative adverbs. I can use "when" when I'm talking about times. "I went to school when I was aged 13 to 18." Yeah? I can use "where" when I'm talking about the place that something happened. So "I went to the actor's temple, where I learnt a lot about acting." Okay? So giving more information about that particular place. I can use "why" -- I mean, "why" normally results in a question. It's difficult to include "why" and then end in a full stop. So you could say, "I decided to cross the road today. Why do you think that is? Well, I went to go and buy some food." Now, I'm going to put some examples here to show you how we can use these. "I went to school with Charlie who" -- okay, so now the next bit gives more information about the person, okay? -- "the man who helped me pass my driving test who" -- so I'm giving even more information about this person -- "now lives in a place in the north of England." "I enjoyed playing" -- "I played football at school, which was fun." So "which" there is talking about, you know, the activity as I mentioned here. "The teacher whose expertise" -- so I'm talking about the skill that that teacher had. Possessive, okay? -- "the teacher whose expertise helped me pass my exam." Now, I hope I've shed a little light. I know some of these might be unfamiliar to you. Should we just have a quick recap of this? So I'm going to use "who" when I'm describing people. "The person I went to school with, who is now doing well. The person I met at the shop, who was a very nice person." Okay? So these are kind of small little chunks that you kind of put on to the end of the sentence. Yeah? "The place that I went today was really great." So "that I went today" is the extra bit of information. "Which" -- "The sandwich, which I had at lunch, was really good." So "had at lunch" is that little bit more information. "The car, whose owner I really like, was very good to drive." So if you've got a sentence, you're putting in a little bit more information here, and then finishing it here, okay? "The car, whose owner I really like, drives fast." Okay? So you'd separate it with two commas.

IELTS Reading
 
05:52
Do you have to take the IELTS? Are you nervous about the test? I can help. In this lesson I will tell you what to expect in the reading section of both the general and academic versions of the IELTS. You will learn about the amount of time you have to do it, the number of questions on it, how much you will have to read, and much more. I'll also give you some tips about how to use your time. Take my quiz at the end to make sure you know what to expect on test day. Once you know what will be on the test, you can do exercises to practice for your test. Be sure to check out engVid's IELTS section at http://www.engvid.com/english-exams/ielts/ for many more lessons to help you prepare for the IELTS. Good luck! http://www.GoodLuckIELTS.com/ http://www.engvid.com/ielts-reading/ Hi, there. My name is Emma. And in today's video, we are going to learn about the reading section of the IELTS. So it's very important before your test day to learn as much as you can about the test. If you know what's going to happen on the test, you're going to feel less nervous, more comfortable, and you'll do a better job. So in this video, I will explain what happens in the reading segment of the test. So first thing to know is there are two different versions of the IELTS; one is for general and one is for academic. If you're doing the IELTS for things like immigration, you will probably be doing the general, whereas if you're doing the IELTS for... For to get into a university in Canada, England, Australia - you will probably be doing the academic. So there are a lot of similarities in terms of the reading passages on the general and academic versions of the IELTS. The readings are different, but there are some things that are the same. In both cases, on the general and the academic, the reading module lasts for one hour. So it lasts for one hour. In this hour, you are going to see three texts or three passages. So there's three sections. Another thing to know is that you will also have to transfer your answers on to an answer sheet. That will also be a part of this one hour. For both the general and the academic, there are 40 questions. The text in the general usually are social, work related, there's often one academic text as well; whereas in the academic, all the text are maybe something you would read in an undergraduate or graduate course. In terms of also the general, you might see advertisements, you might be reading about... You know, comparing different products; whereas in the IELTS, they're usually more scientific or more academic articles. Another thing to keep in mind is for both tests, usually the readings go from easy to difficult. So the first part of the test is going to be the easiest part, second section is going to be a bit more difficult, and the third section is going to be more difficult than the second. So keep this in mind when you're planning your time for the IELTS because if you spend all your time on the first section, that's actually the easiest. It's better if you spend less time on the first section, more time in the middle, and the most time at the end. So in both the academic and the general, you're going to see a variety of questions. Okay? There are many different question types. And the best way to prepare for the IELTS is to learn about these question types. You might see multiple choice where they'll want you to pick: "A", "B", "C", "D", sometimes "E". Short answer. Sentence completion. You might see tables, charts, diagrams. You might have to read something and then fill in a diagram based on the information you read. Sometimes there's summary completion. Paragraph headings where you have to match a heading with the correct paragraph. You might need to locate information. You might have to write about a writer's view or claims. You might get a question on classification. Or you might get a matching question. So, the main point here is that it's important to know there are many, many different question types you can get on the IELTS. In terms of the IELTS also, it's very important before you do the IELTS to take a deep breath and to relax yourself. Especially with the reading section, you might see a lot of passages you have to read - take a deep breath, you will do fine. It's also important to know with the reading module of the IELTS where it comes on the test. The first thing you do on the IELTS is listening, the second thing will be reading, and then after that, writing. So just so you're aware of where it comes, reading is in the middle. So, I invite you to take our quiz to see if... How much you know about the IELTS, the reading module. Come visit our website at www.engvid.com. Good luck. Until next time.
How to write a good essay: Paraphrasing the question
 
14:39
Do you sometimes struggle to begin writing an essay when taking an exam? Good news! There is an important writing skill that will help you improve your essay introductions. This technique is called "paraphrasing", and it means rewriting something using different words. In this lesson, I will teach you how to paraphrase successfully and how to change essay questions into your own words. These skills are very useful for university and high school students, as well as any students writing English proficiency exams like the TOEFL or IELTS. TAKE THE QUIZ: http://www.engvid.com/how-to-write-a-good-essay-paraphrasing-the-question/ WATCH NEXT: Essay Writing – 6 ways to compare: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8WSzwBD7GQ TRANSCRIPT Hi, there. My name is Emma, and in today's video I'm going to teach you something very important for if you're taking any type of test that has a writing component. So, if you are taking the IELTS, the TOEFL, the CELPIP, even just a university test, it can be any type of test, but if you're asked to write something like an essay or a paragraph, this video is for you. Okay? So I'm going to teach you a very important skill that will help improve your marks when it comes to writing on tests. So, let's get started. So, I have here an essay question. This question is actually... I've seen it on the IELTS. You know, you have similar types of questions on the TOEFL, sometimes in university. The question is this: "Education is the single most important factor in the development of a country. Do you agree or disagree?" Or maybe: "To what extent do you agree or disagree?" So, this is an example of a question you might be asked. Now, a problem a lot of students have is in their answer to this question. They see this, and they think: "Okay, education is the most important factor in the development of a country, yes, I agree." So then they... Or: "I disagree", and they start writing. And what do they write? Usually the very first thing students will write is this: "I agree that education is the single most important factor in the development of a country because..." So, what is the problem with this? Is there any problem to start off your essay with something like this, or to start off your answer? There's a big problem. So I want you to take a moment and think: "What could be the problem with starting your essay off with this sentence?" Okay, well, if you noticed, you have here the word: "education, education, is, is, the single most important, most important factor". If you notice, these are the same. They're the exact same, except for: "I agree that" and "because". The student, here, has used the exact same wording that is in the question. So, if you do this on the IELTS-and many students do this, same with on the TOEFL-you actually will lose marks, and same with in university, because you're not showing your abilities; you're just copying what somebody else has said or what the essay question is. So, in this video, I'm going to show you first off... First off, I'm going to tell you: Don't do this, don't copy. And I'm going to teach you ways in order to improve yourself and your answer by changing this wording. How can you change your introduction so it's different than what the question is? Okay? So, let's look at how to make these changes. Okay, so what we are going to do in order to change the question into a proper answer that doesn't just copy the question, is we are going to paraphrase. So, the word here is: "paraphrase". This might be a new word for you. What does it mean to paraphrase something? Well, when we paraphrase, it means we take a sentence that, you know... We take somebody else's sentence and we change it into our own words. Okay? So, we change the words of a sentence, we also change maybe the sentence structure, but we keep all the same meaning. Okay? So, the meaning from the sentence you copy, it stays the same, same meaning, but different words and different sentence structure. Okay? So it's in your words, but this other person's meaning. So, we are going to paraphrase this example of a question into our own words. So, first we're going to look at how to do that using vocabulary and synonyms. So, we have here the same question: "Education is the single most important factor in the development of a country." How can we put this into new words or our own words that keep the same meaning? Well, we can use synonyms. So, this might be a new word for you, too. A "synonym". "Synonyms" are words that have the same meaning, but are different words.

English Listening Practice: Improve your vocabulary!
 
13:26
Want to practice your listening and learn some new vocabulary? In this video, you will play an English listening game. First, I will teach you some new vocabulary and review English prepositions which we will use in our fun listening practice. Next, you will listen to me describe a picture and you will draw the picture. At the end of the lesson, you can see how well you listened to my instructions. Are our pictures the same or different? You can listen to this video as many times as you like to get more practice and you can play this listening activity with your friends or classmates. Try my quiz at the end to see how many new words you remember. https://www.engvid.com/english-listening-practice-vocabulary-prepositions/ TRANSCRIPT Hello. My name is Emma, and today we have a great lesson plan for you. In today's lesson we are going to practice listening. Okay? We're going to practice listening, and we're also going to learn some new words, we're going to learn about shapes, as well as prepositions. Okay? So, in this video you will also get to do a listening activity and I'll explain a little bit about that in a moment. So first we are going to learn shapes, and these are some examples of shapes, then we are going to learn about prepositions. You might be wondering: "What is a preposition?" Well, a preposition is a short word like: "on", "above", "below". And after that we're going to do a listening activity where you're going to listen to me describe shapes and prepositions. For the listening activity you will need two things: A piece of paper and a pencil or a pen. This is an active video so you will actually be doing something while watching. Okay, so let's get started on shapes. So I have here some major shapes in English. We have a triangle, we have a circle, square, a heart, and this one is a star. In our listening activity later, you will be drawing a triangle, a circle, a square, a heart, and a star. Okay? So these are the words we'll be using in this video. We will also be using some prepositions. So a preposition is a short word that shows the relationship between two things. So that's confusing to a lot of students. An easier way I like to think about prepositions is they can... They can describe where something is. Okay? So they often answer the question of: Where? So, for example, I have here our triangle and our circle, and I have the preposition "on". So if we look at this, I could say: "There is a triangle on a circle." So: "There is a triangle on a circle." So we will be using the preposition "on" later in our listening activity. We also have "inside". "There is a triangle inside a circle." Another preposition is "outside". We can say: "There is a triangle outside the circle." So, here, the triangle is inside, whereas here the triangle is outside. So these are very common prepositions we use when describing where something is. Okay, we also have "above". So, "above" is a little bit different than "on". If you notice the circle, the triangle is on the circle, meaning it's touching, whereas when we're looking at "above" it can be touching, but it can also be just above. So it can touch or it can also just be above. So, for example, we have a triangle above a circle. Okay, now we have "below" and "under", two more common prepositions which we usually use in the same way. So we have here the circle. We can say: "There is a circle". Or actually we can say: "There is a triangle below the circle." Or: "There is a triangle under the circle." Okay? And now we have "to the right". We can say: "There is a triangle to the right of the circle." So notice how they're beside? This side is to the right, whereas this side is to the left. So if we look at the triangle, the triangle is beside the circle and it's also to the right of the circle. Now, compare this to "to the left". We have a triangle and a circle, and we can say: "The triangle now is to the left of the circle." Okay? So these two are opposites: "to the right" and "to the left". So these pictures help you understand these prepositions, which answer the question of: Where? So, again, we have: "on", "inside", "outside", "above", "below/under", "to the right", and "to the left". Okay, now, for the listening activity we are about to do, there are three more expressions that you will need. You will need to know: "in the center". Okay? So if I'm looking at this board, about here is in the center. Okay? So I can say: "My finger is in the center of the board." I can also say about corners. We have a corner, a corner, another corner, and another corner. Okay? So those are called corners. If I'm looking at my piece of paper from earlier, we have a corner here, a corner here, a corner here, and a corner here. So, what I can say is... If I ask you to draw something, I might tell you to draw something in the top corner, which might be here.
IELTS & TOEFL Academic Vocabulary - Nouns (AWL)
 
07:27
http://www.engvid.com/ Are you studying for TOEFL or IELTS? In this lesson you will learn academic and technical nouns which commonly appear on the tests. The vocabulary you learn here will be especially helpful in the reading section but will improve your score in the reading, writing, speaking, and listening sections as well. I will teach you nouns such as: "aspect", "disposal", "indication", "substitute", "trend", and others. Take the quiz: http://www.engvid.com/ielts-toefl-academic-vocabulary-nouns/ Check out the detailed academic vocabulary list in our resources section: http://www.engvid.com/english-resource/academic-word-list/ TRANSCRIPT Hi, guys. I'm Alex. Thanks for clicking, and welcome to this lesson on IELTS and TOEFL academic vocabulary, with a focus on nouns. So, today, we will look at 10 academic nouns that you may see or hear on the IELTS or TOEFL tests, and this could be either in the reading, writing, listening, or speaking sections. Now, today, you may see some words that you are familiar with, and you may see some words that are totally new to you. If you're familiar with the words, that's excellent - but don't get overconfident because the purpose of today is not only to learn new words, but to look at words that you may be familiar with, but perhaps, you know, you're not sure how to use it appropriately in a sentence, and more specifically, in an academic sentence. And when you're done here today with this video, don't forget to check out a more extensive list of academic vocabulary on the www.engvid.com resources page. Okay, so let's begin. First word that we're going to look at today is: "aspect". Now, an "aspect" is a part or element of something. So, for example, the sentence we have on the board is: "Vocabulary is just one aspect of language." So vocabulary is just one part of language. Second, we have the word: "component". And, if you notice, it has the exact same definition of "aspect", so it's a part or element of something as well. And the sentence we have here is: "A laptop has many complex components." Now, you might be asking yourself: "Well, are these words exactly the same?" And the answer to that is: not really. They are the same, in that you can talk about abstract aspect and abstract components to things, but when it comes to physical things, you're more likely to use the word "component". So, for example: here I'm talking about the components of a laptop, so I'm talking about the board inside, and the RAM, and the memory, and everything like that; so I'm talking about the physical parts of the laptop. Again, you can use both of them to talk about the abstract parts or elements of something, but if you're referring to the physical part of something, I would stick with "component". All right, the next word we have is: "consequence". I'm sure many of you are familiar with this word. It's a result or effect of something. So, for example, the sentence we have here is: "Obesity is a consequence of overeating." And, again, "overeating" just means eating too much and "obesity" is the physical problem of being overweight to the point where it's not good for your health. So, one thing about this word, if you are going to use a preposition after it... The most common preposition we use with "consequence" is: "of". So we say: "This is a consequence of this.", "That is a consequence of this." Okay? The next word we have is: "disposal". The meaning I give for this is: the act of arranging or distributing. So think of "disposal" as the distribution of something and the arrangement of it. So, for example, in the army: "The general is responsible for the disposal of troops." Now, when I say "troops", I mean soldiers, people who are in the army, for arranging them and where they're going to go. And finally, we have the word: "function" which is the working purpose of something. So: "Today's phones have numerous helpful functions." And again, "function" is another word, another noun where if you want to use a preposition after it, use the preposition: "of". So: "What is the function of a cellphone or the function of a camera?" Etcetera, etcetera. Okay, guys, let's look at five more words. Okay, so the next word is: "indication". So, "indication" means a sign or a token of something. So if we look at the sentence: "The melting of ice caps" - of polar ice caps - "is an indication of global warming." So, if you're making an argument about science, for example, in one of your papers, this might be a sentence that you would write. So, "an indication of". Again, you're using the preposition "of" after: "indication". Okay? The next word is very common - I'm sure you're familiar with it - and that word is: "option". So again, an "option" is basically a choice, and usually it's a choice of one of several possibilities. Right? So: "This is one of several options." One of several choices.

How to improve your English with MUSIC and MOVIES!
 
12:56
You learn the most English if you're having fun doing it. So today, I'm going to teach you how to improve your English by watching movies and by listening to music! Many of you already listen to English music and watch shows and movies that are in English. I'm going to teach you some activities that will make you active with the language you hear. You'll also learn fun games you can play by yourself or with a friend that will help you learn vocabulary, expressions, and pronunciation. By learning English from movies and music, you'll also sound more like a native speaker. http://www.engvid.com/how-to-improve-your-english-with-music-and-movies/ TRANSCRIPT To be, or not to be - that is the... Hi. James from engVid. Just practicing my Shakespeare. Well, not really. I just wanted to show you acting. Acting, being an actor can be a good way to learn English. And today I want to show you two fun ways to practice English doing things you already love to do. Okay? So, let's go to the board. Mr. E is saying: "I sound like Madonna!" That's not here yet, but that'll be the second one, but today or right now this part of the lesson is about movies, acting. What we want you to do or what I want you to do is go find a movie you love in English. I'm sure there's... If you're watching me, I'm sure you've watched some English television program or movie. I mean, I'm speaking a lot of English so I know you're used to it. What I... What I want you to do is pretend you are an actor in a movie, and we're going to take a few steps to get there. So the first thing is: Pick a movie that you love watching, because some of you watch it again and again. Star Wars, yeah, yeah? Or Harry Potter, if that's still out there, or Bond, James Bond. Right? Any of those movies. Okay, so you pick your movie. The second thing I want you to do is go through the movie and watch the scenes you love the best when the actor says something like: "Punk, do you feel lucky, punk? Well, do ya?" And then pick a couple of those scenes. All right? The third thing I want you to do is go to this part, and it's i-m... It's www.imsdb.com. It's where you get scripts. Now, right now you're probably going: "What's a script?" Well, in music the words in the music are called lyrics. Okay? So when you're looking at the words in a song they're called the lyrics. But when you're looking at the words in a movie, it's from a script. And one actor has his part in a script, another actor has her part in a script. And these are the lines they say. This particular website has amazing amount... An amazing amount of movies with scripts, so you can go and find any of the latest ones, like of Jason Bourne, or I'm trying to think of something that came out. I don't know when you're going to see this, so just say Harry Potter, maybe Ironman. Okay? Go check it out, you'll see the scripts, you can go and look at it. The reason why I asked you up here is to pick out scenes is you can go to the scene on the script where it may say: "Car chase scene", "Gun scene", "Kissing scene", and you can look at it, and all of the words the actors say are there. Because I know sometimes you don't know what the actor is actually saying. Sometimes we have what's called relaxed speech. In relaxed speech, they might say: "What do you want?" and it comes out: "Whatda ya want?" And you're like: "What?" It's English. Now, we have a video on relaxed speech, you can go and check it out, and it will explain: "Whatda ya want?" and other ones. Okay? So, the lines that will be there, you might notice a big difference between what the actor says and what is actually written for what you should explain or you should understand. Okay? This is good, it's going to help you with your ears as well. There's a thing you can pick up from listening. Okay? So we want to look at the scripts and then listen. Now, watch the movie at your favourite part. So now you've got the script in your hand, you're going to watch that part. Read. Here's the funny thing, a lot of times people read when they're watching a movie, like they read the subtitles-you know the little words?-and they think: "My listening is good because I understand." No, you're reading, but it does help because it helps you put a picture, a word picture to the words you're hearing. And we're much better with pictures. Think of it this way: Have you ever walked up to someone and said: "I remember your name, but I don't remember your face." No, you don't do that. We always remember faces and we forget names. Those kind of words and sounds are hard to remember, but the picture we always keep.

You should say: Who the parent is; How you know him or her; What kind of person he or she is; And explain why you think he or she is a good parent. Well…the first good parent that comes to mind is my uncle. If memory serves correctly, my uncle’s 45 now. He works at a university as a history professor and he has a daughter who’s in second grade. I live really close to them and I hang out a lot with my uncle, so I know him and his family pretty well. Like most Chinese parents, my uncle considers his child’s education a top priority. He often reads books with her and discusses many funny topics with her at their leisure . Therefore, his daughter’s reading ability and expressive ability are excellent for her age. Besides busy work, my uncle loves to accompany his kid in doing lots of interesting things. For example, he even enjoys playing video games with his daughter! You know, it’s pretty funny that an audlt in his mid 40s enjoys playing video games like a teenager. So it’s not surprising that my cousin always says her best friend is her dad. As for why I think my uncle is a good parent, it’s mainly because of his good parenting. He never tends to push his daughter a lot; instead, he tries to be a role model in daily life, which can influence his child over time. Besides, he genuinely respects and treats his daughter as an equal so my cousin always seeks her father’s advice when facing problems.

IELTS & TOEFL - The easy way to improve your vocabulary for English exams
 
08:42
http://www.engvid.com/ Is your English limited to "good" and "bad"? Learn how to improve your vocabulary FAST by using more advanced, descriptive adjectives. Having marked thousands of student essays, I know this one simple change can help you get a higher score on any English exam, especially the TOEFL, IELTS, and TOEIC. You can move from lazy English to powerful English in minutes! Take the quiz on this lesson here: http://www.engvid.com/ielts-toefl-improve-your-vocabulary/ TRANSCRIPT Hi, my name is Rebecca, and in today's lesson, I'm going to show you how to stop using lazy English and start using energetic English. How do you do this? Very easy. For the next few minutes, I'd like you to participate in a little experiment with me. I'd like you to pretend that you are a professor, and join me in checking these sentences on the board. So, six students wrote these sentences in an English exam, and what I'd like you to do is to help me to decide which students, which two students should get the highest marks. Let's start looking at the sentences. Number one wrote: "It was a good lecture." Two: "It was an interesting lecture." Three: "It was an informative lecture." Out of these three students, which student do you think should get the highest marks? Think about it. Well, according to me, it would be the third student. Let's look at another set of sentences. Number four wrote: "I had a bad week." Student number five wrote: "I had a tiring week." And student number six wrote: "I had an exhausting week." Again, put on your professor's cap and tell me: which student do you think should get the best marks? Which one? Well, according to me, it would be student number six. Now, why did we - I think you probably chose the same ones as me -, why did we choose student number three and student number six? Why did we choose these responses and why didn't we choose one and four? Because one and four use the words: "good" and "bad". And what I'd like you to learn in this lesson is to use any words when you're speaking or writing other than: "good" or "bad". Why? Because "good" and "bad" are overly used, they're rather boring words, and they're not very descriptive words; they don't tell us anything specific, they're very vague, they're very general. What I'd like you to do instead is to do what these other students went on to do which is to be more detailed, more specific, more descriptive, more energetic, more dynamic in your speaking and in your writing. This one change will make a tremendous difference in the way that you speak and definitely in the way that you write. This is a really important lesson if you're planning to appear for the TOEFL, or the IELTS, or the TOEIC exam, or any English proficiency exam, or even if you're just in school and you're submitting assignments and essays. This one technique of getting rid of the words: "good" and "bad" and replacing them with more interesting words is going to give you a much higher score. Next, I'll show you exactly how you can do this. So, now I'll show you how to avoid using the lazy words: "good", "nice", or "bad", and start using more powerful words instead. All right? You're going to go from the basic, to the intermediate, to the advanced level word or you could say the more vague word, general word to a clear word, to a more specific word. Okay? That's what you want to keep in mind when you're coming up with your words. I've just given you some examples, but you can certainly come up with lots of other examples. Let's look at some of these. A "good" meal. A "tasty" meal. A "delicious" meal. We had a "nice" evening. Okay. We had a "fun" evening. We had an "enjoyable" evening. It was a really "good" meeting. It was a "useful" meeting. It was a "productive" meeting. You see how I'm adding so much more information with the more powerful vocabulary. Right? More detailed vocabulary. We had a "nice" holiday. Well, what is "nice"? "Nice" is a very general word. If you want to stay general, you can still use a better word. So here I've given you an example: we had a "pleasant" holiday. We had a "relaxing" holiday. Okay? So... Oh, I'm sorry. We had a "pleasant" holiday. Or: we had a "delightful" holiday. That's if you want to stay more general. If, by "nice holiday", you meant that it was really a quiet holiday, then say: "quiet". A better word than "quiet" is: we had a "relaxing" holiday. Okay? So you see how you're being more specific because when I say: "I had a nice holiday", it doesn't tell you very much; just gives you a very general impression. Let's continue with using the word: "bad". Also, another very overused word. It was a really "bad" journey. It was a "difficult" journey. It was a "problematic" journey. "Problematic" means there were many problems that you had or that you encountered on the way, during your journey.

Now, if you are aiming for band 7 or for band 8, you are probably going to enter into the labor market and would start working soon. So let me tell you a quite funny story about when I was working and then we'll just jump straight into the essays I promised. So one day my boss came in to work with his brand new car. It was really a real model, really expensive. So I said, “Hey, wow! That’s a sweet car. Amazing! Well done.” And he just said -- well, I’ll you what he said afterwards. Okay, because it's important, if you’re looking for a job. So let’s have a look first. Essays that scored band at 6.5: they addressed the topic but the argument wasn’t fully developed. So probably they didn’t put a reason in there and they probably didn't give any example, and it probably wasn't the strongest example. Maybe it was structured in a way of, “My friend in my town once bought a car and he was the boss, blah, blah, whatever” okay? Here the structure, the essay structure, this is critical. It’s really easy to learn but it must be structured in a certain way. I mean a very good way is the general to specific. That will help you a lot and also a single argument. Let’s go to the next one. So if it scored an 8, all parts of the writing tasks -- all parts of the writing task were addressed and fully understood as well, because I've seen it so many times. Maybe it's a problem- solution essay question and the essay is totally focused on the problem and two paragraph all dedicated to the problem. So we need to be 100% certain that we’re actually addressing task response and here’s a quick tip. You want to double-check your plan. When you see the question write your plan and then just check that it corresponds to the question, okay? And having a good vocabulary range will also help you avoid errors. For example, if you misunderstand one of the words or you don't understand it entirely, then there's a good chance that you're going to write an essay about a slightly different topic. And these are small changes that can clearly affect your essay.

IELTS Vocabulary: 3 Easy ways to get the vocabulary you need

IELTS Resources: Free IELTS Ebook: https://www.ieltspodcast.com/sign Prepare for IELTS Online here: https://www.ieltspodcast.com/online-ielts-course/ IELTS Essay Correction: https://ieltspodcast.com/essay-correction-service/ IELTS Vocabulary: Three easy ways to get the vocabulary you need to pass IELTS. Okay, in this video we're going to look at lexical resource and let’s look at techniques to get that lexical resource and it's important to get it because it’s 25% of your score. And it’ll also tell you a very funny way to get vocabulary that you'll definitely enjoy. But before that, I want to tell you about just one thing that what to do if your neighbor owes you $500 or 500 pounds and won't give it back to you. It’s quite funny but first let's jump into this, into the vocabulary. So there's different ways of getting it. One of the good ways is the Academic Word List. This will help you use the vocabulary you need to get your writing into an academic style. Now, personally I find this list a little bit stale, a little bit boring because it’s just a list of words. I think the best way would be to to identify in that list maybe look at the top 20 or top 30 groups of words. There are the top three groups of words because those are the most frequent ones used in academic literature. And then what you can do is go to Google, okay, and put into Google crime PDF or global warming PDF and get it and you can see here that it's ac.uk. That means it's like academic writing which is exactly the style you want. What you can do is just go through it. This is just right at the beginning and you can see the whole sentence here and this is the style we’re wanting to write into. We’re wanting to emulate or copy. And we can say or we can just take this sentence and say, “A robust finding is that criminal activity is negatively associated with high levels of education.” And so here we could just say, “Global warming” and change the vocabulary, yeah. Or here we could say, “positively associated” and we could say, “with high levels of employment, high levels of pollution.” Can you see what I mean here? We’re building our sense of structures and we're building our vocabulary and this is a very quick way to improve. But it's also -- and this is very critical, it's written in the academic style of English that you want. And as you can see, London School of Economics and Political Science. This is not any blog writing that we’re going to be copying. This is solid academic writing. And you'll get this just by using ‘.ac.uk’ and that will help you get your academic writing. And like I said six sentences, change vocabulary; practice with this, get some feedback. If you want some feedback on your essays, you can check out sentenceguide.com or you can go to ieltswritingtasks.net. Both of those places offer robust essay checking. Let’s carry on. So you can create work from this. This is really easy as well and it's a fast way and it's a smart way as well to boost your vocabulary because if you know the formula, let me just jump straight into it. So go to Google again and let's put verb, adverb, adjective lists. Then go do an image search. Now, if we know the roots, for example, decide and then we know the formula for changing it into the adjective, into the adverb, into the noun, we've expanded our vocabulary considerably. Now, there's two ways of doing this. One, memorization which is painful, not painful but it's boring, I think. But the best way is to learn the formulas. And so, for example, in some of these words depending on the origin, we can put ‘ive’ and get the adjective. On some of them we can put ‘able’ on the end probably if it's from French a French [line 00:04:16] whatever. Now, we can get the adjective. So this is a really fun way to boost your vocabulary. Now, while I've got this in front of me, I'll just share another way. And that's if we learn the prefixes and suffixes. For example, if we put ‘un’ at the beginning then we can have uncreative and then just by learning that one prefix, we've got uncreatively. We’ve boosted our vocabulary. If we say indecisive, we've got the opposite. Indecisively, indecision, maybe we could say that; indifference, indifferentiate -- I don't think – indifferent, indifferently.

IELTS Speaking - Full Test | Topic "Exciting Experience"
 
13:21
IELTS Speaking Part 2: IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card. Talk about exciting experience (Describe something you did that was new or exciting). You should say: what you did where and when you did this who you shared the activity with and explain why this activity was new or exciting for you. [You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you're going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.] For more IELTS Videos, Please click the links below: Speaking Videos: https://goo.gl/4vHa6M Listening Videos: https://goo.gl/UeWdgC Academic Writing: https://goo.gl/y24N46 General Training Writing: https://goo.gl/zgCu5B General Training Reading: https://goo.gl/2Ubswh Academic Reading: https://goo.gl/Jjesp2 Sample Answer: I know what to tell you about here! I’m going to tell you all about what I did, where and when it was, who I shared the activity with and why it was both new and exciting for me. I love trying new things. I’m not particularly brave, but I hate missing out on adventures, and I am curious about the world. On balance, even if something is uncomfortable, or positively frightening, I’d much prefer to ‘give it a go’ and face the consequences than walk away from the opportunity and wonder what might have been. Last year I went on holiday to a fitness boot camp. It was in Northumberland, right by the sea. This is a wild and beautiful location in the north of England. The week involved lots of different activities, abseiling; hill walking; river kayaking; climbing (I was rubbish at that); body boarding; orienteering even learning how to build wild shelters out of scraps of wood. Lots of those activities were new and/or exciting, but there was one thing in particular we did that gave me a massive adrenalin high! Coasteering! Now I’d never even heard of this before, so I think you might also need me to explain a bit more about what exactly it is! So the activity was coasteering, the location was Northumberland, and the timing was August 2015 I think. In terms of who I shared this with, well, I went out with a group of about 6 other fellow holiday-makers and our very experienced, patient and lovely guide Bruce. We all wore full wet suits and old trainers to protect our feet as well as life jackets (buoyancy aids) and helmets. Even so, I was very apprehensive as we walked over the slippery seaweed covered rocks towards the crashing waves. The first challenge was just climbing into the water as the waves seemed huge and the water was freezing. However, once you have literally taken the plunge, the shock of adrenalin and the effect of the wet suit soon warms you up! Our leader was very safety conscious thankfully, so although I was a bit scared (I’m not all that strong a swimmer) in fact he carefully checked each route before we followed, using a rope to link us all together where necessary. As the time passed we got ever more confident, at times the waves washed us off rocks like we were droplets being shaken off the coat of a wet dog, but after a bit you start to realise that even though you feel like you are being tossed around in a giant washing machine it is actually pretty safe. The buoyancy aid makes it impossible to sink, and as long as you don’t fight the currents, but go with them, it is really fun. You do have to surrender control to some extent which feels weird and unsettling but once you do, oh my what a ride! It was incredibly exciting. You are seeing the landscape (coastline in this case) from a really new perspective, in amongst the waves, gazing up at huge rocky cliffs, jumping in and out of rock pools, and screaming with laughter as you are swept along. Without the necessary equipment and guidance, it would be terrifying, you’d end up drowning, or injuring yourself by being battered against the rocks but this way it was enormous fun. So coasteering was new and exciting because it was something I’d Although it was hilarious, it was challenging. I’m really, really glad I did it, once. However, I don’t know if I’m quite brave enough to do it again! That said, I’ve already admitted I do have a terrible fear of missing out, so I think I probably would! You should too, if you ever get the chance, but please make sure you trust your guide first, and don’t even think about it without proper equipment, it would be all too easy to get swept away, the oceans are a powerful force, and not to be trifled with! It is being in amongst all that power of nature that made the experience so awesome and memorable!

IELTS Speaking Part 3: Hobbies (Band 3)
 
05:11
Examiner Comments on Candidate Band 3 This candidate is unable to keep going and her responses are limited to short, simple utterances that convey little information. Her speech is hesitant and repetitive with frequent corrections, and punctuated by very long pauses while she searches for language. She uses simple vocabulary and seems dependent on the language of the question, indicating that her range is not sufficient for less personal topics. She can produce some basic structures, but many of these are short, easily memorised phrases (Many Koreans like; it is helpful; it is important). She rarely completes any accurate grammatical sentences. She attempts a very limited range of simple sentence forms with a lot of effort. Her pronunciation is relatively clear, but the samples of speech are so short that there is only evidence of a limited range of acceptable features and this limits the band. This candidate's pronunciation is a slightly stronger feature, but this is not enough to raise her above Band 3.

4 pages every IELTS student needs to follow on Facebook or Twitter (Lesson 3)
 
08:21
This video gives you the 4 best pages to follow to improve your English, as well as relevant examples that you can use in your IELTS and Cambridge English exam. These 4 pages have up-to-date relevant news that will help you write and speak with confidence in your exams. Free IELTS workbooks: https://hippo-campus.teachable.com/p/ielts-workbooks-lessons Video Transcript: Hi everyone, I am Niamh from Hippo EdTech and I know for many of you preparing for your IELTS Task 2, in the exam, is pretty difficult. And can be quite scary because in the essay question they ask you to give examples and any relevant information that you have from your own experience. Now, sometimes, based on the topic areas, this can be really difficult because you might not have a lot of relevant examples and so a lot of students begin to panic. Now, I want to tell about, in this video, I want to tell you about four great resources that you can follow on Facebook or Twitter, that’s up to you, that will give you relevant information, great examples and that they are all pretty similar to the topic areas that you will be tested on in the Task 2 essay. Now, remember that there is, we have another video on the main topic areas, OK, so you can look at that as well. And in this, I identify 8 main topic areas that you will be asked, so for this reason, this is why I have chosen these four pages. Now, I’ve chosen them as well because I use them, I use them for my own personal reading and I also use them for teaching and any teachers out there, should also use them because they are great authentic examples and relevant to things that are going on around us today. So, the first one is TechCrunch. TechCrunch is all about technology, obviously, and if you are a technology fan then perhaps you already know about this. But, we know that technology is a really big area of questioning in the IELTS exam and this extends not only in the writing, but also in the speaking. So, on TechCrunch, they have amazing articles that they update hourly. They are really, really relevant. You can read their information through articles or you can watch their TechCrunch TV. And they have a news roundup every day. So, you can improve your reading skills and your listening skills if you want, but also get up-to-date information about technologies that are disrupting a lot of industries, such as, UBER and the driverless cars. And it’s a great source of information that can be used in your essay. The second is I F**ing love Science, and I do, I do F**ing love Science, so this is my favourite resource. I’m a big science fan and I read a lot of the articles that they release throughout the day. Now, they describe themselves as the ‘lighter side’ of science, so they do present the science in a way that is more digestible and you know, it’s not always so heavy. So, even if you’re not a fan of science or know a lot about it, what they do is release during the day a lot of science jokes and just funny things related to this area. OK, so it really kind of engages you in a great way. As well as this, it also has subsections and these include health, the brain, physics and chemistry. Now some of them, like health, is a topic area that we come across a lot in the IELTS exam. So it does focus in on those sections and maybe if you’re interested, you could just read those sections for yourself. --- Visit Hippo Educational Technologies where our goal is to improve your English fluency & skills to succeed at university and beyond.
