Hi,Simon
Yestoday,I met a writing task 2 question:

Some people believe that giving aid to poorer countries has more negative effects than the positive effects. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

Is it the same as the question:“Do you think the negative effects of giving aid to poorer counties outweight the positive ones?”and I have to discuss both sides?

Please explain you plan of this essay introduction.
Thanks!

No.3 can be also 'Not Given' that is a little confusing because it says actions are not enough for introducing laws not the government is unlikely to introduce laws to reduce carbon emissions.
can be a little bit tricky no time in reading test to think in my way :D

Hi Simon,

1. NOT GIVEN
2. FALSE
3. TRUE

Hi Simon,

Do you how many points I can miss if I do not write 150 words in the writing task 1? I have been working hard but I usually write 140 words.

Hi Amran,

Congratulations on getting such great scores! Good luck with your career in medicine.

...

Hi Veena,

Don't worry about that - there will be no difference.

...

Hi Leona,

You don't have to discuss both sides when it asks "do you agree or disagree?" - you just need to give your opinion and support/explain it.

It's basically the same question as the one I did in the lesson below, so you could use my structure and ideas:

...

Hi Paula,

Try to write just 10 more words! If you write less than 150, there is a danger that your description is missing some information.

Hi Amran,
Congratulations on your success and good luck in your career.
It would be a great help if you share your study tactics.I also need band 7 for medical registration.
Thanks.

Hi Simon,
I want to ask u something about the Reading. I am really confused about No and Not Given in the Reading test. Can u show me the difference between No and Not Given in Reading test and give me some examples? i have made mistakes in this section. Thank you very much!

Hi Thanh Truc,

The answer is false/no if you can show that the opposite or a different answer is true.

The answer is not given if you can't find any information for that question.

This difference is difficult for everyone. You will get used to this type of question if you do lots of practice. Try some of the "true, false, not given" exercises in the reading lessons here on the site. Analyse the 'false' and 'not given' answers carefully.

Hi Simon

Here This text extracted from Official IELTS :

The average person can detect at least 10,000 odours . Being able to identify those smells is another story . If blindfolded , most people can put a name ('roses' , 'fish' , 'oak' ) to fewer than a hundred scents .


Question(True/False/Not Given) :
The average person can name thousands of smells.


I would be thankful if you explain it to me

The answer given :FALSE

Hi Mh,

It says that we can "detect" thousands of smells, but we can only "name" FEWER THAN 100.

The question is about how many we can NAME, so it's false.

Hi Simon,
my answer is NG,F,T.
thanks

Hi Simon

1.T
2.T
