Things to Avoid in Formal Writing

At one point in your life, you were required to submit a thesis, a report and a proposal, among others. What do these writing genres have in common? They are written in an objective and formal manner.

In the future, especially after acing your IELTS exam, you will need to produce another formal write-up, be it in the university or in the workplace. For example, in the university, your professor obliges you to submit a term paper as a final requirement for the program. Meanwhile, in the workplace, your immediate supervisor or boss asks for daily/monthly reports to monitor progress or proposals to tap clients. When you enroll in IELTS review center, instructors provide carefully thought topics and exercises to students to enhance their language skills.

Basic Sentence Patterns

When you take the IELTS exam, you are assessed based on how well you responded to each task. This means that examiners are particular with the quality of your answers—clarity and accuracy.
