Dengan Bahasa Inggris Dasar NOL = 1 bulan bisa menulis esai IELTS

Posted On //
IELTS itu tidak gampang. Tapi jika punya niat untuk mempelajarinya, maka pasti selalu aja ada jalan. Selama 1 bulan terakhir ini di bulan Mei, tepatnya di periode IELTS ENGLISH RAMADAN 2019, saya mengampuh kelas IELTS Pemula (paling dasar), yang kemampuan bahasa Inggris peserta yang ikut di kelas ini sangat terbatas. Mereka belum mampu memproduksi kalimat-kalimat yang panjang dan komplek. 

Seperti yang saya bilang di atas, asal ada kemauan, pasti ada jalan. 4 peserta kelas IELTS dasar ini memiliki tekad yang kuat untuk mempelajari IELTS. Ini yang membuat saya semangat untuk mengajar mereka.

Yang namanya pembelajar pemula, saya perlu mengenalkan IELTS itu apa saja. Skill apa yang dibutuhkan untuk ditingkatkan agar mampu menjawab soal-soal IELTS, sehingga mereka mampu menggapai skor 5.0 dalam waktu 1 bulan ini. Pencapaian skor 5.0 bagi peserta yang memiliki kemampuan bahasa Inggris dasar merupakan mencapaian yang sangat luar biasa. 

Singkat cerita, saya men-drilling mereka tiap hari dengan kalimat-kalimat yang sudah saya siapkan. Perlu diingat, peserta BASIC sangat tidak dianjurkan mempelajari grammar yang terlalu detail. Cukup memperkenalkan KALIMAT dan FRASE. Ini membantu mereka disaat mereka melakukan drilling. 

Selanjutnya saya meminta mereka menghapal KALIMAT dan FRASE berdasarkan topik-topik ringan yang sering muncul di pertanyaan speaking dan writing IELTS. 

Menghapal bagi sebagian orang sulit, begitupun yang dialami oleh 4 orang peserta BASIC IELTS ini. Tapi dengan semangat yang ber-api-api, mereka mampu sedikit demi sedikit menghapal KALIMAT-KALIMAT yang baru dan aneh menurut mereka. 

Setelah mereka menghapal kalimat-kalimat yang sudah saya siapkan, kemudian saya mengajarkan mereka menyusun kalimat -kalimat itu menjadi sebuah paragraf, tentu saja dengan lebih dulu mengenalkan KATA SAMBUNG (linking words) dan mempelajari fungsinya dalam kalimat.

Cara belajar ini kami lakukan 9 jam sehari selama 20 hari. Apakah ada rasa BOSAN di sana? Ya betul, tapi kami selalu percaya, rasa BOSAN ini hanya sementara saja, toh akan hilang jika kita tetap terus melakukan aktivitas belajar. 

Di hari ke-19, sehari sebelum melakukan FINAL TEST, saya pun memberikan MINI-EXAM ke mereka untuk mengukur kemampuan mereka dalam menulis esai. 

Dan apa yang terjadi? Mereka mampu membuat 1 full essay dengan waktu 1 jam. Dan pencapain ini sangat luar biasa bagi peserta yang memiliki kemampuan bahasa Inggris dasar, hampir NOL, yang mempunyai tekad besar untuk mempelajari IELTS.

Kamu ingin juga seperti mereka?

Kemarin saya sudah membagikan contoh paragraf yang menggunakan komparasi YEARS dan GAPS.

Sharing kali, saya menunjukkan bagaimana Language of Change dan Language of Comparison digunakan bersama dalam paragraf. Perhatikan contoh berikut: 






In 2009, Nokia sold close to 450 million mobile phone, which was almost double the number of handsets sold by the second most successful manufacturer, Samsung. Over the following four years, however, Nokia’s sales figures fell by approximately 200 million units, whereas Samsung saw sales rise by a similar amount. By 2013, Samsung had become the market leader with sales reaching 450 million units.
The other three top selling mobile phone brands between 2009 and 2013 were LG, ZTE, and Apple. In 2009, these companies sold around 125 million, 50 million and 25 million mobile handsets respectively, but Apple overtook the other two vendors in 2011. In 2013, purchases of Apple handsets reached 150 million units, while LG saw declining sales and the figures for ZTE rose only slightly

Contoh paragraf komparasi GAPS and YEARS di LINE GRAPH

Posted On //
Sharing kali ini tentang contoh paragraph yang menggunakan teknik komparasi YEARS dan GAPS yang sering ditemukan di LINE GRAPH. Berikut Line Graph yang akan dibuatkan paragrafnya

The Graph below shows the number of university graduates in Canada from 1992 to 2007. 

Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparisons where relevant. 








Graduate numbers rose during the 15 years and reached their highest levels in 2007, but there were always more females than male graduates. In 1992, the difference was less marked, with just over 70,000 males and about 100,000 females. However, by 2007 there had been more significant growth on female numbers. That year, they rose to 147,000, compared to just 95,000 males. Thus the gap between the number of male and female graduates had widened. 

A more detailed look at the graph reveals that the overall growth in numbers was not always steady. Between 1992 and 1995, there was a slight increase. That was followed by a period of about five years, when numbers fell, then flattened out at just over 70,000 for men and 100,000 for women. After 2000, however, graduate numbers saw their strongest growth rate, and this was well above the increases that had been seen in the early 1990s. 



Note: 
Paragraf 1 tentang GAPS, menggunakan Language of Comparison
Paragraf 2 tentang YEARS, menggunakan Language of Changes

PENTING: Jika kamu ingin mendapatkan skor 7+, susun paragraf komparasi berdasarakan GAPS and YEARS

Contoh paragraf esai IELTS Line Graph Band 7

Posted On //




Sebelum tulisan ini saya bagi ke blog ini, saya lebih dulu mendiskusikan ini dengan peserta kelas IELTS Online via Whatsapp saya.

Di sana banyak merasa sudah menuliskan paragraf yang tepat, tapi pada kenyataaannya, paragraf yang tersusun itu TIDAK dapat mewakili kesimpulan dari graph di atas.

Permasalahan paling banyak saya temukan adalah, Peserta kelas IELTS online ini TIDAK memahami secara utuh informasi yang disampaikan.

Contohnya, The highest amount of water was seen and increased significantly from the first to the last year.

Di atas adalah contoh yang keliru dalam menuliskan kalimat untuk mendeskripsikan kalimat di atas.

Perhatikan contoh paragraf di bawah ini:


Roadways were the main source of transportation in the UK, which transported around 70 million tonnes of goods in 1974. The amount of transported goods hovered around 80 million tonnes till around 1996 from where it increased at a steady rate before closing at just under 100 million tonnes in 2002. Pipelines, in contrast, were the lowest in 1974 at around 3 million tonnes after increasing at a steady rate closed down at just over 20 million tonnes in 2002.
Railway and Waterways recorded to be transporting approximately 40 million tonnes in 1974, from where waterways showed a rise in transported goods till 1992 before declining by around 10 million tonnes for the following three years, it again rose and closed at about 62 million tonnes in 2002. Railways fluctuated between 20 million tonnes and 40 million tonnes and closed at just above 40 million tonnes.

Cara Sukses Menjawab Line Graph (Waste) IELTS Writing Task 1

Posted On //


Sebagai Contributor Essay Forum, tiap hari saya membaca tulisan siswa yang masuk ke forum ini. Dan tiba saatnya satu esai IELTS task 1 tentang Waste Graph yang menarik perhatian saya yang kemudian akan dibahas di blog kali ini. 

Berikut judul dan gambar dari grafiknya  :
The graph below shows the amounts of waste produced by three companies over a period of 15 years.

Hal pertama yang wajib kamu lakukan adalah dengan mengelompokan trend yang ada. 

Kali ini saya akan mengelompokan Company A dan B menjadi satu bagian paragraf yang sama, karena menunjukkan trend yang “menurun”, lalu Company C akan saya bahas di paragraf isi berikutnya.

Tapi sebelum menulis paragraf isi, kamu wajib membuat “Overview” yang menggambarkan trend grafik secara keseluruhan. Overview dapat kamu tempatkan di awal paragraf bersamaan dengan kalimat pembuka ataupun di paragraf akhir.

Berikut contoh yang saya buat:

Kalimat Pembuka:
This graph presents tonnes of waste produced in three different companies for every five years, from 2000 to 2015. 


Kalimat Overview:
The amounts of waste created from Company A and B 
showed dramatic decreases. This contrasted to the waste product of the Company C increasing gradually.


Paragraf isi 1:
After reaching a high of 12 tonnes in the first year, the amount of waste produced by Company A continued to decline dramatically to the 2000 company's B figure. As it can be seen in the Company B, the amount of waste generated rose gradually to 10 tonnes in 2005, but the converse would be true for the subsequent years and then hitting a low of 3 tonnes over the ten-year period.

Paragraf isi 2:
Although company C was close behind when it came to waste product in the 2000, this trend showed an upward trend from 4 to 6 tonnes in first 5 years and then continuously rose to overtake the figures for Company A and C in years of 2010 onwards. 


Jika digabungkan, isi keseluruhan esai sebagai berikut: 
This graph presents tonnes of waste produced in three different companies for every five years, from 2000 to 2015. The amounts of waste created from Company A and B showed dramatic decreases. This contrasted to the waste product of the Company C increasing gradually. 
After reaching a high of 12 tonnes in the first year, the amount of waste produced by Company A continued to decline dramatically to the 2000 company's B figure. As it can be seen in the Company B, the amount of waste generated rose gradually to 10 tonnes in 2005, but the converse would be true for the subsequent years and then hitting a low of 3 tonnes over the ten-year period. 
 Although Company C was close behind when it came to waste product in the 2000, this trend showed an upward trend from 4 to 6 tonnes in first 5 years and then continuously rose to overtake the figures for Company A and C in years of 2010 onwards. 
Oke, sementara itu skil IELTS yang saya share kali ini. Semoga dapat membantu meningkatkan pengetahuan kamu tentang IELTS Writing task 1, khususnya Line Graph.

Cara menjawab soal IELTS Writing task 1 ala Kampung Inggris Pare (with a score of 7+)

Posted On //


Banyak jalan menuju Roma. Hal ini juga berlaku dalam penulisan Writing Report Task 1 pada perolehan skor 7+.

Salah satu cara yang paling cepat dan mudah digunakan dalam penyusunan report writing task 1 adalah dengan membagi paragraf berdasarkan tahun. Contohnya sebagai berikut:

Body Paragraph 1
  • 1900 and 1950
  • Key Features: Agriculture = the highest vs the lowest one = Business and Financial. 
Berikut contoh kalimat yang saya buat: 
The figure for the Agriculture sector in the UK economy accounted for 48% in the initial year. This continued to rise slightly in the 1950 year. The contribution made by the other sectors: Business and Financial was very low, although this showed a slight rise from 1900 to 1950, between 3% and 8%, an increase of 5% in a 50-year period. This contrasted to the sector of Manufacturing experiencing a downward trend to 40% in the second year.          
Body Paragraph 2
  • 1975 and 2000
  • Key Features: Decrease for manufacturing and agriculture vs Business and Financial = increase
Berikut contoh kalimat yang saya buat: 
1975 to 2000 saw downwards in the Manufacturing sector at 18% followed by the trend for Agriculture coming last in the eventual year, at almost 1%, and those contributed the small percentages. The reverse appeared to be true for the importance of Business and Financial increasing to the 1975 year Manufacturing’s sector in 2000 and therefore this became the most important sector from all described on the graph.
Saya sengaja tidak menuliskan Introduction and Overview, karena saya memberikan Anda kesempatan untuk melakukan itu. 

Jika Anda telah menyelesaikan penulisan Introduction and Overview, atau Anda memiliki cara lain dalam menyusun paragraf isi (body paragraphs) yang dapat digunakan dalam menjawab pertanyaan yang disajikan pada sesi Writing Task 1 di atas, silahkan posting jawaban Anda di Group Facebook di sini, dengan senang hati saya akan memberikan feedback terhadap performance Anda.

* Dalam penulisan Introduction, Anda cukup membahasakan ulang dengan bahasa Anda (paraphase) judul yang Ada di atas: The graph below shows the contribution of three sectors-agriculture manufacturing, and business and financial services- to the UK economy in the twentieth century.

IELTS Writing Task 1: Understand the Importance of Vocabulary

Posted On //

One of the most important points in execution of IELTS writing task 1 is to mastery so many vocabularies. There are some aspects which include in scope like correct spelling, words duplication, and vocabulary utilizing in the broad sense. A reliable resource said that the participants of IELTS prohibited to do vocabulary writing excessive for maximizing the score. The structure of grammar and vocabulary will determine the score. There some types of vocabulary test that will be explained below:


1. IELTS Vocabulary for Conditional Purpose
In this section, you’ll find some sentences that show a requirement to do something. Usually, the writing of these sentences use “if” as the marker of a condition.
Examples:
  • You can borrow my book if you return it before you go home.
If can be replaced by providing that. From the sentence above we can see that the first person want to do something for the second one if the second person do something wanted by the first one.
  • You can’t go abroad if you don’t have any passport.
We can replace the word under the red circle with unless. In this sentence, the person can’t do something because he or she doesn’t fulfill something required.
The word “if” can also be replaced by another words or phrases like no matter how, as long as, on condition that, however many, and wherever which all of these, have the different condition.              

2. IELTS Vocabulary for Changes
In addition of explaining a condition, a word may has more than one meaning at the different context of sentences. Let’s take a look for some examples below:
  • We need some batteries to adapt this flashlight. adapt means recharge
  • The Palestine societies have to adapt the politic condition of their country. adapt means conform or fit in.
3. IELTS Vocabulary for How Something Works
We can explain the use of an object with a phrase or vocabulary. For example, there are some steps of making tea with no hot water available:

  • Fill the kettle with water.
  • Heat up the water on the stove.
  • While waiting for boiling water, prepare a glass fill with tea and some sugar.
  • After the boiling water is ready, lift the kettle from the stove.
  • Pour some boiling water to the glass prepared.
4. IELTS Vocabulary for Writing Letter
There are some phrases that commonly used in writing a letter like the example below:
  • Dear Sir/ Madam explain greetings to somebody who sent the letter.
  • I would like to….. explain the intention of letter.
  • As you requested, I enclose…… explain eligibility which has been asked before.
  • I look forward to hearing from you soon explain a response to wait a reply of letter.
  • Thank you for your attention saying thanks to mail receiver.                                                            
5. IELTS Vocabulary for Presenting an Argument
For example, there are some sentences that being randomized. These sentences explain about somebody who is confusing to choose whether going to university or spending a year travelling around the world after school. Arrange these paragraphs to understand the arguments.
  1. Not only getting a job immediately, but also getting a good job with a good salary. (4)
  2. After that, if I have spare time, maybe I can follow a trip around the world. (5)
  3. I have to decide should I go to university or spend a year travelling around the world? (1)
  4. But, there are many advances of going to university. (2)
  5. Because I will get my qualifications immediately and I can find a job early. (3)
  • I have to decide should I go to university or spend a year travelling around the world?
  • But, there are many advances of going to university.
  • Because I will get my qualifications immediately and I can find a job early.
  • Not only getting a job immediately, but also getting a good job with a good salary.
  • After that, if I have spare time, maybe I can follow a trip around the world.
I hope this article can help you to learn about IELTS writing task 1 especially for understanding the use of vocabulary. Good luck.

9.     Fluid tank (D)

We can finish this task by the solution below:

In outline, the diagram illustrates the performance of a hydraulic lift. The system also consists of some parts like the lift carriage where the passengers stand on it, a piston that cause rise and fall the load and a pipes track that carry hydraulic fluid.

The passenger could raise or lowering the lift by pressing the “up” control button that causes fluid movement from the tank into the bottom of the fluid tank. We will see that the piston get pressed up. When the fluid fills up the piston, its position will be rise. The lift carriage that related to the top of piston will be forced up to. As we can see at the diagram, the flow of hydraulic fluid represent by the blue arrows. The process when the passengers want to get down almost the same with the previous case. The differences are located on the control button that should be pressed, followed by process flow of fluid and the piston. An electric signal is sent so the pump will be switch off when the “down” control button pressed. Simultaneously, a signal also sent to a valve in front of the pump to cut the fluid’s flow from the piston back to the fluid tank. The reversing flow shown in the diagram represent by the red arrows. The piston and lift would be brought back down caused by the gravity. 

From the discussion above we can see that there are three main parts of describing a process like:

  • Process
    • In this part we have to describe the performance of an object. We need to watch this stage carefully.
  • Object
    • We should describe something or someone that related to the diagram.
  • Data
    • We should describe the changes and trends of the data.
