...Topic: Money can bring happiness, do you agree or disagree? (Within 300 words, at least 250 words; IELTS for GENERAL TRAINING) As the most significant symptom of wealth, possessing a large sum of money has become a unique pursuit of many people, especially young generation, around the world. They are convinced of that happiness can bought by sufficient money. However, they could neglect the fact that happiness is not just determined by one factor but many others such as your friends, relatives, and pleasant experience. In my perspective, happiness does not always increase in direct ratio to the rise of money. Focusing on the illusion that money brings happiness may have an unexpected adverse effect that may lead to a misallocation of time. For instance, when some one reflects on how money would change their sense of well-being, they would probably tempt to think about spending more time in leisurely pursuits such as seeing a three-dimensional movie or traveling abroad. But in reality, they would have to spend a large amount of time working and commuting and less time engaged in experienced happiness. On the other hand, it is undeniable that money has a brief effect on life satisfaction, particularly after we have got enough money to satisfy our fundamental need. For example, people who get richer would feel they are better than their peers. Nevertheless, they will soon make richer friends. Therefore, their relative wealth will not be greater than it was before; people quickly...

...22000 ESSENTIAL WORDS FOR IELTS AND TOEFL Cũng có 1 chút kinh nghiệm về kỳ thi IELTS, nên hôm nay chia sẻ cùng mọi người.  Muốn đạt điểm cao ở kỳ thi IELTS, có 1 điểm rất quan trọng mà Bear nghĩ ai cũng biết: LUYỆN TẬP THƯỜNG XUYÊN.  Tuy nhiên, cũng có 1 điểm cực kỳ quan trọng mà đa số thường không chú trọng lắm. Đó là phần từ vựng dạng ACADEMIC (học thuật). Nên để đạt điểm cao trong kỳ thi IELTS, ôn luyện từ trong quyển 22.000 từ THI TOEFL/IELTS của Harold Levine là cực kỳ cần thiết. Mỗi ngày chỉ cần học 3 từ, thì lượng từ vựng của bạn sẽ tăng đáng kể.  Số từ vựng này giúp bạn trong cả 4 phần thi LISTENING / SPEAKING / READING / WRITING.  Ví dụ: Nếu bạn dùng từ: SIMULTANEOUSLY thay cho từ AT THE SAME TIME, hay PORTABLE thay cho từ EASY TO CARRY hay MITIGATE thay cho từ LESSEN … trong phần WRITING và SPEAKING thì điểm của bạn sẽ cao chót vót không ngờ luôn đấy. Chưa kể, nhất là trong phần READING, những từ trong quyển sách này xuất hiện nhiều lắm, và cả LISTENING nữa chứ.  Sự lợi hại của quyển sách này, chắc chắn chỉ khi nào học rồi, bạn mới thấy rõ.  Quyển này (nhà xuất bản TPHCM) đã hết bán rồi. Nên nếu bạn nào cần phôtô thì liên lạc Uyên Uyên: UyenUyen@englishtime.us  Tuy nhiên mỗi tuần Bear vẫn sẽ post lên đây 20 từ trong quyển sách đó, để nếu bạn nào ở xa, vẫn có thể học được.  Đương nhiên mỗi người có 1 cách học riêng và trí nhớ khác nhau.

Well as you can probably guess I come from Taipei and I have lived here all my life, although at the moment I’m studying in another city – Taizhong. I suppose if I had to describe Taipei, the first thing I would say is that it’s very crowded, maybe even one of the biggest cities in Asia I guess. It’s so congested that even the locals have problems finding their way around! Another significant characteristic is that it offers splendid examples of contemporary architecture. Actually some of the renowned landmarks are in the middle of Taipei, such as the Taipei 101, the second tallest building in the world. | Well, the main thing you need to know is that…(1) + (details)… On top of that I can also add that (2)…+ (details)… Something else that I need to say is that (3)…so actually…(detail) Starting-off Ok, then; actually; alright; well, you know; Point 1 The first thing I’d like to mention is … The main thing you need to know is … I’d like to begin by highlighting the fact … Point 2 In addition I suppose I should say … Another interesting point … Not only that, but _______is also exceedingly …..

Writing Ielts

...ªIdeas for IELTS topics Who is this book for? Many students have no ideas or opinions about IETLS writing topics. Even if your grammar is perfect, you will not get a high IELTS score if you do not know what to write. This book is for students who want to go into the writing exam feeling confident that they have excellent ideas, opinions and vocabulary for as many topics as possible How do you get an IELTS score of 7 or higher? The key to a high score is not grammar, it is not your use of words like “moreover” or “in addition”, and it is not your use of phrases like “this is controversial issue nowadays”. To get a high score you need to use good “topic language” (words and phrases that are related to the question topic). You need good ideas in order to answer the question well. How should you prepare for IELTS writing task 2? There is an enormous amount of advice on my website ielts-simon.com. Here is a summary of what I suggest: Spend more time preparing than testing When you test yourself, you find out what your level is, but you do not learn anything new. You will not improve if you only write test essays. Before writing an essay, study the topic and prepare your ideas, opinions and vocabulary. Steal my ideas If you only use the vocabulary that you already know, you will not learn anything new, and you will not improve. Practise linking my topic ideas together to write “perfect essays”. See the website for examples of how to do this. Use this book together with the......
