Советы по IELTS Writing Task 2

Во-первых, в связи с тем, что IELTS - тест на знание английского, мы настоятельно рекомендуем в период подготовки как можно больше читать, писать, говорить, слушать английскую речь; так сказать "обложиться" английским со всех сторон и, естественно, все подготовительные материалы должны быть только на английском! Ведь ваша цель не научиться искрометно переводить со своего родного языка на английский, а начать думать на английском как англоговорящий native speaker.

Одной из самый сложных и проблемных ля большинства из нас была и остается Writing part. Поэтому предлагаем вашему вниманию последовательную краткую инструкцию как успешно сдать вторую часть Writing теста.

1.            Introduction. This will be a short paragraph of only 2 – 3 sentences. It should clearly introduce the topic and claim made in the Task question. And it should clearly state your opinion and general answer to the call-to-action part of the Task question. See How to Analyze the Essay Question and How to write introductions quickly for IELTS Task 2.

2. First Main Idea. Here you provide your first main reason of support for your opinion. Add supporting details and examples.

3.       Second Main Idea. Here you provide your second main reason of support for your opinion. Add supporting details and examples.

4.            Conclusion. Simply restate your opinion.

Let’s look at an example of an Agree/Disagree question:

1.            Introduction. I paraphrase the first sentence about requiring teenagers to volunteer in the community. I state my opinion that I agree because it benefits both the teenager and the community.

2.            First main reason why I agree – it benefits the individual teenager. Explain how it benefits them and give examples – opens their eyes to the problems of others, instills discipline and commitment, helps their communication skills as they have to work with others, etc.

3.            Second main reason why I agree – it benefits society as a whole.  Explain how it benefits society and give examples – helps create stronger bonds within communities if teenagers are involved, communities always need helping hands in various projects – clean ups, setting up free events, providing services for elderly, sick or poor, etc.

4.            Conclusion – restate that I believe that community volunteering is important to both teenagers as individuals and to society as a whole.
