I took the IELTS test on the 79/59/7567 in Australia. Writing task two was challenging as I didn t know how to address the task. I would like to have some ideas on how to solve it as I couldn t fit it in any of the 9 categories of essays.
Dear Teacher Sjm,
Since you are here, could you please explaining this sentence to me? I do not understand what it means. Thank you very much!
On the societal level, by forcing people to choose particular university subjects, governments can ensure that any knowledge and skill gaps in the economy are covered.
I have seen it in a Task 7 essay written by Teacher Simon, but I do not understand what he means by that.
What we need, then, is practice in handling long sentences. It is relatively easy to feel confident in writing shorter sentences, but if our prose is made up entirely of shorter structures, it begins to feel like "See Dick run. See Jane jump. See Jane jump on Puff." Primer style (pronounced "primmer" in the .), it's called, and it would drive a reader crazy after a while.
Remembering just a few simple rules can help you use the correct punctuation as you introduce quotations. There are some exceptions to the rules below, but they should help you use the correct punctuation with quotations most of the time.

Notice as well the punctuation of the sentences above in relation to the quotations. If there are no parenthetical citations in the sentences (no author's name and page number in parentheses), the commas and periods go inside the final quotation mark ( like this. ). For whatever reason, this is the way we do it in America. In England, though, the commas and periods go outside of the final punctuation mark.
Keep in mind that each of these words or phrases may have a slightly different meaning. Consult a dictionary or writer 8767 s handbook if you are unsure of the exact meaning of a word or phrase.
Notice that there are only two punctuation marks that are used to introduce quotations: the comma and the colon (:). Note that a semicolon ( ) is not used to introduce quotations.
In this case, the transition words 8775 Despite the previous arguments, 8776 suggest that the reader should not believe paragraph A and instead should consider the writer 8767 s reasons for viewing El Pais 8767 s democracy as suspect.
What a wonderful list: thank you for sharing. I 8767 m going (with your permission) to use it with my EAP class. I have other lists (including from the Manchester phrase bank) but this is a list of phrases that have been used rather than could be used.
