IELTS Writing Task 1 e 2: una bella ‘prova’.

Ti stai preparando per l’esame IELTS? L’IELTS Writing Task 1 è forse una delle parti più ostiche e complicate di questo test. Tutti noi crediamo di poter scrivere ad un livello accettabile e questa fiducia eccessiva ci può costare molti punti nell’esame.

l’IELTS Writing Academic e General Training non sono il tipo di Writing che siamo abituati a svolgere di solito. Quanti di voi scrivono gli ‘essays’ (saggi) tutti i giorni? Oppure dei reports (relazioni) su dati forniti da uno studio? Credo non in molti.

Personalmente ho visto molti studenti prendere un Band alto nello Speaking, Listening e Reading e perdere punti nel Writing, abbassando così la media in modo drastico.

Quindi non puoi trascuralo se vuoi avere successo all’esame. Come fare l’IELTS Writing 1 e 2 allora?

La prima cosa da fare è capire cosa ti viene richiesto dalla commissione IELTS.

Se non sai in base a cosa verrà valutato il tuo IELTS Writing? We got your back! Qui di seguito ti abbiamo elencato esattamente come viene valutata la prova di Writing nell’esame IELTS. Capire i 4 criteri di valutazione è infatti fondamentale per ottenere il Band che desideri.IELTS Writing Task 1 e 2

i 4 criteri di valutazione  nel IELTS Writing Task 1 e 2

1. Task Achievement/Response

Task Response si riferisce alla completezza delle informazioni nella Part 1 dell’IELTS Writing.

Task Achievement si riferisce invece alla qualità e alla completezza della risposta nella Part 2.

2. Lexical Resource

Questo si riferisce alla capacità di saper utilizzare le parole giuste e alla varietà lessicale, evitando quindi ripetizioni ed errori di registro. Si tratta quindi di collocations, phrasal verbs, idioms, figures of speech ecc.

3. Grammatical Range and Accuracy

Questo criterio fa riferimento alla capacità di utilizzare la grammatica in modo appropriato. Ovviamente sarà possibile ottenere un Band più alto se si utilizzano strutture complesse in maniera corretta. Clicca qui per vedere un video che parla delle strutture grammaticali che dovresti conoscere per l’esame IELTS.

4. Cohesion and Coherence

Cohesion si riferisce alla coesione del testo scritto. Le idee devono essere ben collegate tra di loro utilizzando i discourse markers (but, although, however, so, in the end ecc). Tieni sempre presente il destinatario. Il testo deve essere inoltre ben organizzato in paragrafi così da facilitare la lettura.

Guardiamo qualche esempio di prove ufficiali e di risposte con le valutazioni degli esaminatori IELTS. Questo ci aiuterà a capire come funziona il Band (voto) finale e i vari criteri di valutazione.

Examiner’s comments
This answer covers all three categories and shows a good level of grouping and comparison of information in each category. The descriptions are supported by accurate data. Organisation is clear (introduction and overview, one paragraph per category) and there is evidence of cohesive devices [The first option I The second line I The last option]. Vocabulary is generally adequate and appropriate for the task, in spite of occasional errors [questionare I questionnaire I amost I almost]. Grammar shows a mix of simple and complex sentence structures with a reasonable level of accuracy. A wider range of vocabulary and/or grammatical range would help to improve the score here.

Answer

In some countries the ownership of peoples’ home is an important matter. In these countries it is very important to own your own home rather than renting it. It might be indifferent for some, but for these people it matter.

Why is that the case? You might wonder. I think it is because your home is supposed to be exactly what it sounds like, your home. As a human I think we long after having stuff to call our own, doesn’t matter what it is, but humans will always want to claim ownership. This is nothing new and it has been like this through human history, like colonies for example, which later once again became the same country before lead by its own inhabitants. People will always want to be the one to decide what happens to them and when you rent your home you can’t even paint it with the owner’s permission.

If you as a person are renting an apartment there might be a lot of stressors in life. A scratched wall can cause you a major headache because the wall was not yours. The bedroom you are currently sleeping in might not be available as long as you hope, things happen in life and may be the next landlord won’t want to have you as a tenant.

In other perspective, not owning your home could be a relief when it comes to your finance. As a renter you won’t have to pay mortgage, take loans, or spend an awful lot of money on buying the property. You wouldn’t have to worry about the house market crashing or a natural disaster destroying your expensive home.

Bottom line, as a human I feel like we need to have a home and calling it your own can make that more special. I personally would rather own my house, because then whatever happens it is on me and no one else.
