Cause Solution Essay: The inequality between rich and poor nations

Posted On //
Helloo.., kali ini saya akan membagi esai IELTS hanya body paragraphs saja, yang tadi pagi 27 Feb 2019 saya tulis di kelas C 1 Band 7 English Studio Indonesia Kampung Inggris Pare. Oia, sebagai info, kelas ini didesain bagi peserta yang memiliki target skor IELTS Band 7. Kelas ini ditempuh selama dua bulan untuk menyelesaikan dua level yaitu C1 (7) dan C2 (7+).

Diantara banyak tipe esai IELTS, peserta didik yang saya training kebanyakan terjebak pada sesi Cause-Solution Essays. Terjebak di sini adalah peserta MERASA sudah MENJAWAB pertanyaan tapi sebenarnya mereka BELUM MENJAWAB pertanyaan yang ditanyakan.

Dengan adanya contoh paragraf Cause and Solution ini, semoga dapat menjadi referensi bagi para pemburu IELTS band 7+. Selamat membaca:





The inequality between rich and poor nations is now wider than it has ever been before. What do you think are the main causes of this difference and what do you think can be done to reduce the gap? Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.

One of the main causes for this huge gap is the education sector. That is to say such sector in developed countries is designed well with internationally recognized standardization while the one in underdeveloped ones is more often neglected. For example, in Finlandia, there is a board that measures students’ performance called PISA, the Program for International Student Assessment. How does it work? This attempts to figure out whether students can apply what they have learnt at school to real-life situations, acquiring social and emotional skills of students, and such a program has led this country to have better income economies with high development human index based on OECD, while in Nigeria since their declaring their independence, the education policies have not been set yet. This is what makes underdeveloped countries lag behind the wealthy ones as they still suffer from poverty as in conjunction with poor education 

What can be done to tackle this? As better education is a play an important role in human, social, and economic development of a country, putting to much concern on teacher development is a must. This is because a good teacher helps students to become good human beings in the society and good citizen of the country. Not only this, they can solve the global learning crisis and close the gap between poor and good quality education. For example, when Finland’s education system fell behind in the 1970s, the government started to reform the teacher training system where all teachers would be sent to master’s level with the same high-level standardization of teacher training, and this has resulted in Finland having successfully narrowed down a wide disparity to the UK  in socio-economy background.

Guessing Strategy in IELTS

Posted On //

Unlike other standardized tests, in IELTS, there is no penalty given for getting a wrong answer. When you have no idea about the answer, you can keep trying to answer as it will give you 20 until 25% chance of getting right answer. So, guessing is a thing that could give positive contribution for you as well. However, it should be noted that guessing in IELTS may not be done carelessly. There should be some considerations that are taken to have a meaningful guessing. 

There are some specific guessing techniques that you can apply.
1. Slang
It is better for you to choose an answer which sounds scientific than slang ones. For example,
A. To evaluate the outcomes of the two different kinds of treatment.
B. Because some objects insisted on getting one or the other of the treatments.
As choice A sounds more scientific compared to B whenever you should guess, pick A as the answer.

2. Extreme statements
You should avoid choosing a controversial choice as your answer. Pick an answer which is calm and rational. For example,
A. Abortion should be banned completely.
B. Though it has a lot of benefit, many doctors have suggested their patients not to take abortion as a merely way out for the unwanted pregnancy.
Choice B is better to take than A because it is less controversial. There is another consideration stated in this option as well.

3. Similar answer choices
When you find two answers which are almost the same, there is a big tendency that one of those answers is the right one. For example,
A. Use polyunsaturated cooking oil instead of other cooking oil.
B. Use polyunsaturated cooking oil is not even better than other cooking oil.
These two choices are almost the same, so there is a big opportunity that one of it is the correct answer.

4. Hedging
If you are dealing with a question about the conclusion, you can look for critical ‘hedge’ phrases such as likely, may, can, will, often, generally, mostly sometimes, etc. You could pick the answer which uses one of the above phrases. It will be better for you to avoid answer with phrases such as exactly, and always.

Still, you need to remember that being sure for the answer is always better than putting your selves in a “grey area” by guessing for the answer. But if you really need to guess, then guess in a smart way of guessing.

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.

IELTS Writing Task: Personal Letter Types

Posted On //
Personal letter is usually written to a friend or a relative. It does not have many strict rules. Here is one suggestion of the structure of the personal letter types of writing.

  • Greeting and Purpose
Start with greeting and an apology (if you forgot to write). Next after that, write the purpose of your letter.
For example:
“Dear Sarah,
I am sorry I have not written for so long. My work keeps me so busy, that I never
have a minute to myself. I am writing to invite you to my wedding.”
