Ini dia tips dan trik Menulis Writing Task 1 Map

Posted On //

Kemarin tanggal 2 Juni 2017 di kelas IELTS Modular English Studio, saya dan para peserta membahas Writing Task 1 Map. Agar kamu dapat menyelesaikan penulisan Map ini dengan cepat dan akurat, lakukan 2 langkah ini:

1. Kamu cukup memfokuskan pada perubahan yang nampak pada Map.
2. Gunakan deskripsi paragraf dan kelompokkan objek-objek tadi berdasarkan tahun yang ada.

Berikut contoh esai writing task 1 yang kami selesaikan di kelas Modular kemarin.

The development of a coastal area of Brightsea chronologically from the past condition to the recent one and the blueprint of its future design is presented in the diagram. Those maps are compared based on the changes made
With regard to business centre, café and shop has replaced fishermen’s cottages in the north east of the map. In the planned development, these two business assets are predicted to be demolished, and therefore restaurant will be built while supermarket will be established in the east of Lighthouse. Again, the north-east development is forecast to construct some apartments and another development is the hotel in southeast of the coastal zone which will be extended to the east.
Turning into the public service, people visiting this place can park their car next to supermarket as the planned development. There will be a sailing club around the area of the hotel, and the south west area, people will see a Ferry Wharf with Telecommunication Antenna, while there are no changes in the main road in the east of the map. 
Kamu juga dapat membaca contoh tulisan saya dengan topik yang sama. Skor esai ini band 7.5 versi testbig :
The ongoing development of a coastal belt of Brightsea from the 1950s onwards appears in the map.
Before the commercial purpose could take place in 1950 onwards, the Brightsea’s local government started to build a house for lighthouse keepers and a lighthouse, which was under constant close surveillance day and night. Also, there were few cottages of fishmongers down to the small detail with a jetty.
A more detailed look at the map shows that in today’s development the cottages and the house of lighthouse keepers have been demolished. This may be because the central activity in the Brightsea area takes place in the commercial purpose, where can be clearly seen from the map that a hotel, café and shop are built into the zone, while a ferry terminal and a main road for commuters have also presented recently. Surprisingly, several years further on, there will be telecommunication antennae in the peripheral zone of the ferry terminal. Again, the shop is reversed into a large supermarket with valet parking for visitors. In the northern part of this coastal belt, the development will consist of a family residence and restaurant, which was used as a cafeteria.
What can be drawn from the map of the coastal belt of Brightsea? Fast forward now to the 1950s the development has dramatically changed. While the lighthouse is the constant landmark, there seems likely that the ferry wharf will have a more significant change.

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.

3. Bring your ID. It can be your passport or national ID according to identification that you provided in IELTS application form. If you do not have the correct identification document, you will not be able to take the test.

4. Bring stationery. Pens ? Pencils ? Eraser ? Take the stationery you need to stay comfort on test but not too much.

5. Check-in your personal items. No personal items to be taken into the test room. Test day staff will collect and safely store your personal belongings. Items which are forbidden from the test room include: mobile phones, hand-held computers, cameras, hats, scarves, wallets, books or notes.

7. If you have problems during your test, do not hesitate and raise your hand. Remember that your test's supervisor is there to support and assist you.

8. Stay calm. Everybody has their own way to keep calm, there are people that walking around and around to make themselves calm. Some may have to listen to the music for calming down. Do whatever make you calm, but do not disturb the others.

Introduction to Reading IELTS

Posted On //

In reading IELTS, you have to deal with three reading passages with some questions as a companion. These reading passages are given based on its level of difficulty. These passages show increasing difficulty.

For each reading passage, there will be about 500-900 words existed. You have total 60 minutes to answer all questions about those three passages. The passages might involve information in form of tables, diagrams, charts, etc. Therefore, you need to have enough practice to understand on how to read those forms. Don’t be afraid of a topic that is unfamiliar for you. You will not be accessed about the knowledge of any particular subjects. You will be access merely on your skill to answer questions which are based on the reading passages. You may give marks on the question paper, but you should write down the answers directly to the answer sheet. Different from listening section, this section does not give you extra time for copying your answers to the answer sheet.

In reading sections, you could find several types of questions as follows.
  • Short answer
  • Multiple choice
  • Matching
  • Classification
  • Completing sentences
  • Completing notes
  • Completing a summary
  • Completing a table
  • Completing a form
  • Completing a flow chart or diagram
  • Selecting headings for paragraphs and sections
  • Recognizing a writer’s views or claims
The same as listening section, you cannot predict which type of question you will have to answer. Reading IELTS might give you some combination of the listed types of questions to answer.

In this section your skills in the following aspects will be tested.
  • Identifying the gist of a passage
  • Finding detailed factual information in a passage
  • Identifying relationships between ideas or information items such as cause and effects, order of events, and comparison
  • Making inferences
  • Distinguishing between fact, assumption, or opinion
  • Understanding text organization
  • Summarizing information

IELTS Reading Task: Short Answer Question

Posted On // 1 comment
There are three types of short answer questions in the IELTS reading:
Type 1. Questions.
Type 2. Lists.
These questions will usually tell you to write your answer in no more than three words. So you can answer with one word, two words or three words but no more. However, this is not always the case, so check the rubric carefully.

For these questions, like the multiple choice questions, you have to apply both skimming and scanning techniques. Also note that the answer should not require a hyphenated word (e.g. non-smoker) or contraction (e.g. They’ve).

If the answer requires a number, you can write a numeral number (e.g. 6) or a word (e.g. six) or a combination of a numeral and a word (e.g. 6 million).

Try this examples below.

How to do the short answer questions:
-          Read the instructions carefully and check how many letters you need to circle.
-          Skim all the questions quickly. As you do this,
o   Underline the keywords.
o   Try to get information you need to find in the next.
o   Look out for question words like ‘where’ and ‘who’ which indicate you should listen for specific things like places and people.
-          Go back to the first question. Decide what part of the text you need to read.
-          Read the part carefully to find the answer.
-          Use your own words. You don’t have to write a complete sentence but it does have to be grammatically correct.
-          Remember:
o   If you don’t know the meaning of any of the words in the questions, look at the other questions. They might have some associated vocab in them to help you guess the meaning.
o   The answer could be one word, two words or three word but not four or more.
o   If you think you need more than three words your answer is probably incorrect.

Predicting what is in the passage of reading IELTS

Posted On // Leave a Comment
The problem that most of test taker deal with in reading IELTS comes from fear that they have even before they start reading the whole passage. Reading IELTS will be academic text which is sometimes not really familiar for test takers. In this case, you need to remember that being panic does not give you anything. Now, let us learn on how to predict what is the passage in the reading section is about.

Reading passages are only text. They have some items in every passage such as titles, paragraph headings, sub-headings, italicized or bold type, pictures, diagram and other visual information, and tables and charts. You can use these items to have ‘smart guessing’ on what kind of information that the passage is going to give. For example, when you see a picture, you can ask yourself some questions such as:

  1. What is happening?
  2. Who is doing it?
  3. Where is it taking place?
  4. Why is it being done?
  5. What is needed to do it?
  6. What other things do I know about this?

You can try to ask such kind of questions to help you get the prediction. You will be more confident in answering questions and finding the information in the passage because you are using your prior knowledge to help you. Actually, that is the thing we do every day every time we read something. However, it should be noted that for answering the section of T/F/NG, you need to be very careful because may take a wrong answer when you merely use your prior knowledge. Remember that prior knowledge should only be a kind of help for you to predict what is the passage is about. Still, you need to check the answer from the reading passage.

As your daily exercise, you can try to read English newspaper. You can write some questions about a newspaper article after looking at the headings and pictures. Then, find out whether you can find the answer in the passage.

Menyebutkan Perbedaan Formal dan Informal

Posted On //

Jika anda sedang mempersiapkan modul untul IELTS Academic, baik Task 1 ataupun Task 2 dalam tes Writing adalah formal. Bagi kandidat General Training, task 2 dalam tes Writing selalu formal, dan Task 1 bisa formal atau informal.

Seperti yang telah diketahui, Task 1 untuk modul GT adalah surat, dan jika topiknya meminta anda menulis surat pada seseorang yang anda kenal, maka surat tersebut dalam bentuk informal – dan sebaliknya jika ditujukan pada seseorang yang tidak anda kenal, maka sebaiknya formal.

Perbedaan antara gaya formal dan informal lebih pada kosakata. Kata-kata informal adalah yang digunakan dalam percakapan sehari-hari dan formal adalah yang biasa digunakan dalam buku, kontrak, surat bisnis dan essai. Jika tugasnya meminta penulisan formal – hindari penggunaan kosakata informal. Jika tugasnya meminta penulisan informal, seperti surat untuk teman, hindari penggunaan kata-kata formal yang “berat”.

Terlepas dari kosakata dalam penulisan informal sangatlah baik menghindari kata-kata seperti “I”, “you”, “we”, kecuali anda mengungkapkan sebuah pendapat. Misalnya dalam sebuah essai ketimbang menulis “You would find it difficult to get a job without proper qualifications”, tulislah sesuatu seperti “One would find it difficult to find a job without proper qualifications”, atau anda dapat menulis “Finding a job without proper qualifications would be rather difficult”.

Bagi anda yang tidak tinggal di Negara berbahasa Inggris dan tidak berbicara bahasa Inggris dalam keseharian akan sulit menyebutkan perbedaan antara kosakata formal dan informal, yang dapat anda temukan pada daftar berikut. Anda dapat menghapalnya dan menggunakannya dalam tulisan anda sambil berlatih – dengan demikian kemungkinan anda menggunakan kata yang tepat dalam tes yang sebenarnya dapat meningkat.
