Hello Simon!
Could you tell me is it a compound sentence? Please!
Parents play a huge role in their children’s lives, and shoulder more of the responsibility for their upbringing than school teachers.

Dear Simon

It is taught in my IELTS Acadamy that we can write all the answers in the capital letters in listening and writing test.

Is it fine or not? Plz answer me for this.

Regards

Jyot

YES YOU CAN write in Capital letters

I mean its OK to write your LISTENING and READING Answers in CAPITAL letters, so this way you will not make errors in answers such as Name, Name of street etc.

FROM SIMON:

These are the words I used, with a few alternatives in brackets:

1. role (part)
2. responsibility (burden) - singular is better than plural
3. formative (early, preschool, important, crucial etc.)
4. models
5. basis
6. exert (have)

Hi Tariq,

Yes, it's a compound sentence.

...

Hi Rex,

Well noticed. I've added the 'do' - it's not vital, but it's nice to include it.

...

Hi Jyot,

Yes, capital letters are fine.

Hi Simon, Please tell me ,for writing task 2, 280-290 words are over the limit or fine? What should be the best maximum word limit for it?

Thanks a lot Simon!

Sorry for inconvenience Simon!
Is this the compound-complex sentence? Please

Parents are the major role models for young people, who copy the behaviour that they see on a daily basis at home, and it would be wrong to expect schools to exert a greater influence than the family.

Hi! Simon what is cyber technology???
I have found one essay question and its very difficul for me. Could you help me with your ideas??
Question:
With a advancement of cyber technology, electronic data and wireless communication have blossomed. This has led to increase in online gambling and illegal wagering. Explein the possible causes that have contributed to this trend and their consequences. Provide ways in which we can eradicate these illegal operations.

Dear Farukhbek, although I am not Simon but perhaps you could take something from what I wrote about cyber technology in my explanation and in my essay on your question.

Cyber - an adjective used to describe anything related to computers

Cyber technology - (digital technology) it does mean computer, science technology that involves the internet or cyber side.

Cyber refers to the mass of computers and networks that form an information technology infrastructure where users are anonymous to each other.

Essay:

Cyber technology has brought so many possibilities for humans to use. However, some of these gains seem to be at least controversial, if not a serious threat. One of the problem is worldwide spread of gambling and wagering online. Considering this, two questions arise - should this even be allowed, and, if yes what should be done to stop its illegal forms.

To start with, there are many reasons why the different types of gambling online are so ubiquitous. Some people always liked to play games, take risks to earn easy money without hard work, looking for thrill. So, gambling is still being practising in many forms. However, easy access to the internet, via computer or wireless connections such as smart phones, mobiles makes it much easier to perform with no need to go out. On the other hand, some people use these possibilities to make their profits. Thus, the numerous private gambling companies, with permission or not, created their websites and activities like poker, casinos, sport betting, bingo, horse racing betting, wagering in play. Even, governments as to outweigh their influences have built their own systems such as National Lotteries.

Consequences? Apart from a doubtful and short lasting pleasure, it is players ’waste of money and time while the profits go to organisers. Their income is enormous, counted in billions of pounds, and especially illegal companies may be unscrupulous. Conversely, our real chance to become a millionaire by the win is an extraordinary small, and psychological and social consequences for serious gamblers are the same like in other addictions.

Unfortunately, the trials to ban totally gambling online by the law acts have been proved to be unsuccessful, for example, in America. In EU there is no yet one clear and homogenous rule. Thus, probably it would be a better idea to accept some forms of gambling, controlled by governments or giving the rights to lead some activities by honest companies with the systems of special licences. Of course, those who do not keep standards of safe and fair play, doing it illegally should be banned with serious fines or being sent to prisons. There should be no advertisements and no encouragement, especially for children. Technically and practically cyber technology themselves may also introduce some protective methods with coded information and blocked access.

In conclusion, there are many reasons for gambling online development with its impacts. However, there are some measures that could be implemented to reduce the scale of the phenomenon, especially in their illegal form.

Hey Farukhbek,

Thanks, for you information.

arents teach their children vital skills and habits, such as the ability to speak, eat and behave. Parents are the major role.

Some people believe that man and women have different abilities that's why man have suitable jobs,women do others works
