In this lesson I explained that there are two things that we need to work on: 1) method i.e. exam techniques 2) improving your English language knowledge.
Let's look at an essay introduction (writing task 2) that a student wrote. The topic is: should children be punished?
There are different views regarding on question that should children be punished to learn the discrepancy between wrong and right. From my perspective, some sorts of punishments as well as rewards are necessary to teach children, however, parents and teachers should apply soft and simple forms of punishment.
Read the introduction above. What should this student work on: method or language? In other words, is there a problem with the way that the introduction is written, or with the language that it contains? I'll tell you what I think in tomorrow's lesson.
