I think it would be grammatically correct if those sentences were written as follow:

1-I like eating white chocolate,containing milk,because I do like sweet chocolate, while dark chocolate tastes bitter.

2-I am obsessed with all chocolate types,because my father used to reward me bars of chocolate for good behavior.

3- I like all chocolate types, but my preference is the dark chocolate.

4-I do not like dark chocolate, it doesn't taste good.

5-I like chocolate similarly to what many people like.

1. To me (NOT for) me, I prefer (NOT like) sweet one.
2. Gave (not was giving) cause GIVE is one-time action.
3.Would is not necessary here.
4. Excite (not exite)
5. Got access to: I'm not sure if it has proper meaning

Regards

hello simon
i hope you are doing well
i took the ielts test (academic module) on january 14th in my own country Iran. i faced difficulty writing task 2 since the topic was a bit strange to me.however, with a bit of luck, i managed to get 6.5 out of writing part. here, i would like to share the question that i received in the test so you can possibly discuss it.

many people think, consumer goods is the most important thing in life.
do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages?

1. I like eating white chocolate which containing milk,because I do like sweet chocolate, while dark chocolate tastes is
bitter.

2. I am obsessed with all chocolate types,because my father used to reward me with some bars of chocolate for good behavior

3. I like all chocolate types, but my preference is dark chocolate

4. I do not like dark chocolate,because it doesn't taste good.

5. I am certain that I detest dark chocolate because it does not excite my palate.

6. I'm into chocolate just like most people. You know, it is hard to forget when you have got access to it.


1. "Because" instead of "cause";
2. "...always give me" instead of "..was always giving me";
3. "I love" instead of "I'd love";
4. I think the whole sentence is wrong;
5. I think the whole sentence is wrong.

1- I like white and milky Chocolate, because that dark chocolate tastes bitter to me, I prefer sweet one.

5.I'm into chocolate just like most people. You know, it is hardly forgotten when you have got access to it.

Corrected:
5.I'm into chocolate just like most people ARE. You know, it is hardly forgotten when you have got access.

I hope these minor but grave mistakes,which I have done,are well realized :)

I hope these minor but grave mistakes,which I have MADE,WERE well realized ;)

1.I like white and MILKY Chocolate BECAUSE dark chocolate TASTES bitter THAN milky one. SO, I like SWEETER one.

2.I adore all kind of chocolates and the reason behind this interest is that when I was young, my father USED TO GIVE me chocolate as a prize for A good behavior.

3.I'd love all types of CHOCOLATES, but my favourite is dark one.

ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

Here are my corrected sentences:

1. I like white and milk chocolate because dark chocolate tastes too bitter to me; I prefer a sweeter taste.

2. I love all kinds of chocolate because when I was young, my father used to give me chocolate as a prize for good behaviour.

3. I love all types of chocolate, but my favourite type is dark chocolate.

4. I hate dark chocolate; I don't like the way it tastes at all.

("excite my palate" is a phrase that only professional food critics would ever use! It sounds very strange in our context)

5. Like most people, I love chocolate. (the rest of the sentence didn't make sense)

1. I like mixed blended chocolate with cocoa and Ground nut flavours.
2. i like all kinds of chocolates.I used to eat chocolate from my childhood when father usually gave me reward for my academic success.

3. I specially ignore white chocolate but love dark one

4. I think that white chocolate are full of milk, so I hate milk chocolate.
5. Most people like chocolate. I am one of them.

Hi Simon,

Hello, Simon,

3. I love all types of chocolate, but my favourite type is dark chocolate.

Thank you,
