IELTS Writing and Analysis

In recent years, the number of students and immigrants, more and more the number of IELTS rapid growth year by year. IELTS is divided into four: listening, reading, writing and speaking. In this four-part, basically all agreed that the writing of Chinese candidates are the most vexing. The reasons are summarized below.

First, the state of mind

IELTS four parts from the point of view, the candidate is generally believed that reading and listening with a lot of problem-solving skills, as long as the problem-solving skills mastered, it will soon improve. The spoken language also has a series of measures to cope with methods and examination room. However, relatively speaking, writing is the embodiment of comprehensive ability in English, candidates within a few months time that the basic unrealistic leaps and bounds, so the writing holds a panic mentality.So muddle along, as long as the writing will on the line, your better to spend more time listening and reading up to help their “pull.” China holds such a view a few candidates, resulting in such a situation: most of the candidates were not enthusiastic about writing, a lot of time and effort spent on reading practice listening to the end writing in general have not practiced a few times that can not find a rhythm of writing and feeling. To the examination room, and certainly not true writing because of the level of play led to scores is not ideal.

Second, the weak foundation in English

Many candidates take the IELTS test is not English majors. There are also some high school students out of undergraduate, did not learn much. Or have some candidates for immigration, the basic never learned English. In this case, in general, Chinese candidates generally low standard of English, base was weak. In such a state difficult to achieve IELTS IELTS requirements, in particular writing needs to reflect the comprehensive ability to use English.

Third, the words of a traditional and a framework for writing and blind obedience

Some training institutions and some market information for the IELTS Writing IELTS writing a series of writing developed to make use of the universal and on the whole article it’ll have a master template and framework. These words of a traditional and templates and the candidates chosen to be vigorously sought after and loved, because the template through the words of a traditional and simplified the task of writing the candidates, so that writing becomes relatively easy and easy, but does not know the words of a traditional and templates, but was sometimes fatal. First of all, it’ll have a very rigid and inflexible template, resulting in the expression of candidate mechanical point of view and sentences, out of touch, giving an uncomfortable feeling.In addition, the examiner had the experience of many so-called template article was very offensive, because the template is not the article reflect the candidate’s proficiency in English but the memory. Third, it’ll have and templates, who are mostly empty words, do not have practical significance. Therefore, this article certainly will not score high.

Fourth, ways of thinking and habits of mind

Some scholars have proposed a cultural mode of thinking on the impact of discourse that Western thought is linear, while the Oriental is the spiral of thinking. When writing the West must be better than the indirect expression of directly expressed, and the speaker’s position remains the same, do not use irrelevant to hide the true point of view. Therefore, generally a straight line to start writing in English. Usually contains four parts: leads, themes, support, conclusion.

Conversely, Chinese people are spiral thinking, writing, when thinking of the hair on the back to even out, let it fall on the original starting point. Such thinking led to the Chinese expression of round spiral structure that is repeated but the development of the spiral form of a question to start, try to avoid the subject directly, like to use descriptive language to detour instructions. This way of writing is inconsistent with the requirements of IELTS writing.

Fifth, lack of ideas and views of the narrow

IELTS relatively wide range of topics, many candidates writing subject in the face of the blind spot of knowledge often encountered, leading to no write. Another case: Some candidates usually too lazy to think, not been trained divergent arguments, which also resulted in the exam is not open for ideas, thinking not enough arguments to support the article so that only the expression of the same arguments repeated for said. Third, usually on a topic related to reading and writing, lack of accumulation of points, resulting in a simple test to get a topic which has no points available.

Sixth, lack of logical thinking

IELTS Writing Part II requirements of concern to the general public under a controversial topic to write a discussion paper.Argumentation is the author analyzes a problem or something, reviews, shows that their views, positions, attitudes, perceptions and ideas of a style. Great emphasis on accuracy and logical reasoning. Argumentative Writing in Chinese candidates in addition to English to express the difficulties and lack of understanding of the content of certain topics, the most noteworthy is the argument to facilitate the lack of logical thinking ability. Mainly reflected in the arguments of the arguments supporting the unity and when the divergence of the paragraph is not enough. Conjunction with another disorder, of unknown relationship between Sentences. Because of these issues before the candidates focus on learning English vocabulary and grammar is the accumulation and learning, basic training for the zero logical thinking, it is difficult to obtain IELTS writing scores.

In short, the writing ability of a person the most realistic use of language reflects. For the above, it should be active efforts to seek some appropriate and reasonable solution to allow the candidates to really fight to improve writing skills and ability.
