A Sneak Preview

Hi everyone.

Here is a sneak preview of some of the new material that I am working on for the redesign of my site.

This exercise asks you to identify the weakest scoring rubric (either TA, CC, LR, or GRA) for introductions written in response to each of the five IELTS essay prompt formats. To make things interesting, one of the introductions has no particular weakness.

Feel free to message me with your response. I will reveal the answers later this week.


Question Introduction
Some people fail in school but end up being successful in life. Why do you think this is the case? What is the most important thing to succeed in life?


Education is traditionally viewed as a springboard to success. People struggle academically but nevertheless enjoy success in their lives. The teaching methods employed in schools do not suit all students, so individual drive and determination is the key to a life of success.


Some people think that the only way to have success in business is to have a unique product. What factors, do you think, influence the success of a company?


A unique product is good for success in business. Some people think that having a unique product is the only way to have success in business.   In this essay I will argue that a unique product is important, but that so are other things.


Some experts believe that it is better for children to begin learning a foreign language at primary school rather than secondary school.  Do the advantages of this outweigh the disadvantages?


The acquiring of a second language become a more difficult task to achieve as one grew older. Some pundits are argued that primary school is the preferred setting for learning a second language, in opposed to secondary school. In this essay I will argue that the benefit of acquiring an additional language in this fashion is outweighing by far the costs.


Some people think that art is an essential subject for children to study at school, while others think it is a waste of time. Discuss both sides and give your opinion.


The process of developing school curricula often leads to passionate debate. Some argue that the study of art should be at the core of teaching plans, whilst others consider it to be without merit. This is a perfectly understandable position given the increasing cost of education today.


Every year several languages die out.  Some people think that this is not important because life will be easier if  there are fewer languages in the world.  To what extent do you agree or disagree?


The extinction of minority languages is a gradual but inexorable process.   Some feel that a world with a reduced linguistic diversity would in fact be an easier one to live in. I disagree with this notion entirely, and in this essay will explain that the loss to humanity when a language is lost far outweighs any gains in terms of simple convenience.
