It has been said that Kool-Aid makes the world go 'round. Let it be advised, however, that without the proper tools and directions, the great American beverage is nothing more than an envelope of unsweetened powder. There are five simple steps to create this candy-tasting concoction. Picking the proper packet of flavoring is the first step in making Kool-Aid.
Really speaking all your blogs are helping me slot in understanding the task response. I just want to ask that if I want my writing to be checked by someone who is expert, then what should I do. As I say the rest of the site is excellent.
Dominic Cole July 24, at You have failed to understand what this is about — clearly I need to go back and rewrite. There is nothing prescriptive here.
I simply describe what the functions of the different parts of the essay are and suggest a process for producing a good essay in exam circs. I do in fact emphasise that the smart candidate will adapt what I say.
Did you miss that bit? What I say has little or nothing to do with academic writing but I suspect you knew that alreadyit is an adaptation of what is to be found in many IELTS and general English coursebooks. The focus is on the exam and being practical. Where you perhaps disagree is the suggestion that it is unwise to reproduce pre-planned essays but to spend time thinking about the question in front of you.
Is that the problem? If that is the prob, we need to agree to disagree. What these candidates have done is to understand the principles of good essay writing — which is what this lesson is supposed to be about.
The ideas though will remain the same. I am sorry now that I posted. I repeat once more I think this blog is excellent and many of the model essays with their colour coding to focus on linking words, coherence, vocab ….
I am just not convinced that a lengthy analysis of process writing is the way to go, No offence meant. Congratulations on your impresive website.
Dominic Cole July 24, at 6: I smile in your general direction. It was to me an extremely interesting comment. Its presenting the idea that there are different stages in writing an exam essay and that it can help to break the process down into steps because you wan to focus on something different at each stage.
You also make a very pertinent point to me at least about the length of the piece — which I should perhaps try and explain.
It is long and does almost certainly need pruning. The length though is intentional and has a purpose. The only way I can really explain this is by outlining what I intend to produce on this site.
What I intend to produce is a form of multi-layered course that can be accessed at different levels according to need. There are a lucky few for whom this level of advice is all they need. The English is there, they just to know a few ins and outs of the exam.
For most though more is needed. That level will lead down into a slightly more detailed layer where ideas are explained with exercises and examples. Some of the ideas though may need more explanantion — so that layer will lead down into a deeper level of advice looking at very specific skills.
It is mostly this deeper level that I am producing a first draft of now. It is fairly heavy at times, but I try to compensate with 7 word sentences, 3 line paragraphs and BIG headings.
Ultimately though it will almost disappear from sight unless people intentionally go looking for it.View MBA application requirements for Columbia Business School's MBA programs. Start your MBA application today. Get your paper written by a vetted academic writer with 15% off!
