by leo liang
below is one paragraph about negative effect by IT, which i write for practising my coherence
Technology has led to significant improvements in people’s life, do u agree or not?
A particularly dire effect of developments in technology is lack of family bonding. This is because people’s behavior has been changed by modern technology. For example, in recent years the younger generation tends to enjoy their time on their online life such as checking facebook rather than interact with their families at their free time. If they expose to this situation for long time, they may only live in their own virtual world. As a result, it will not only decrease their communication skills, but also limit their social opportunities with people from outside.
Phrases for Giving Examples
A question comes to my mind. In writing task 2 I plan to clarify a point of view. can I say that "To illustrate this point of view, ....."
"One the one hand, some people think that parents are responsible for children's education. to illustrate this point of view, ......"
What are the best IELTS writing cohesive devices?
Hi to all.
I have studied your marvelous sample writing task 2. If we like to write multiple ideas, which one of following structures is better? I mean which one get the better score.
In this structure, I use the 'firstly' and 'moreover' to separate ideas. please take a look at this example:
Sth has several disadvantages. Firstly, one of the most important item is that sth is useful. Moreover, another disadvantage of sth is that it is free.
In this structure, 'one of the most important item' and 'Another disadvantage of sth is that it is free', are added, we must not use 'firstly' and 'moreover'. Please take a glimpse on following example:
Sth has several disadvantages. one of the most important item is that sth is useful. Another disadvantage of sth is that it is free.
