IELTS Writing and Reading Practice for Nurses

Ervin Nil Temporal CEO 9.0 Niner: So I'll be asking for topics or questions from the audience, from the participants, and I'll throw the questions at him. Now, writing is further subdivided into two. Task one is different for academic and general training test takers. Writing task one. If you are going to the United States of America, it has to be the academic module. And that means to say you'll be given a graph, table, diagram or chart. And based on this, you're supposed to write at least 150 words. I understand that nurses who are going to the United States must take the academic module. It's just that we also have general training candidates worldwide who have a different writing task one. And for them, it's letter writing. So what have I decided to do for tonight writing task? Two, essay writing exactly the same for all IELTS examines worldwide. Apparently, there are four criteria that IELTS examiners will be looking at in your performance. And what are they? The first one is task response. How well did you respond to the question? The second criterion that examiners will be looking at in your writing performance is coherence and cohesion. So this is the one that assesses the organization, the flow of your essay. The third and fourth criteria are the ones assessed in both writing and speaking. And what are they? The next one? Lexical resource in simple words. It's vocabulary. And the last one, grammatical range and accuracy. In 2017, I attended the International Conference on English Language Assessment, and this one took place in Shanghai, China, where I met some of the biggest bosses of IELTS in Asia and the world. And what is it that I've learned during that time that all over the world, a lot of candidates do not get the record ban score in writing because of number one, inappropriate vocabulary. And number two, wrong grammar. Exactly why, in our next slide, I'll be showing you a problematic paragraph. So this is supposed to be a lecture. It's not supposed to be a monologue. That's why I'd like to encourage the 150 live viewers for tonight to participate in our discussion. So what is it that IELTS examiners expect in your writing output for vocabulary? Number one, the words must be correct. Meaning to say you have to consider the context of the sentence and make sure that the word is used appropriately. Number two, it's not enough that the words are correct. The words must also be varied because if you frequently repeat the words, that is going to invite the examiner to give you a lower Mark or lexical resource. Now, the third consideration for vocabulary, you can't be redundant. A lot of people are asking what's the difference between repetitive and redundant. Repetitive is when you're using exactly the same words. Redundant is when you use the different words in pertaining to exactly the same idea. That is why for tonight, I'll show you this problematic paragraph, and I need you to tell me what's wrong with the underlined words. So let's begin with the first line. It says commercial advertisements. Earlier, I have noticed that we have participants or viewers worldwide. There are plenty of you based in Asia, Africa and Latin America. So, guys, I need your audience participation for this free IELTS class to become successful. Will you please tell me using the comments section, what is wrong with commercial advertisements? Hopefully it's moving already from my because I'm looking at my phone for the Facebook Live session. It seems. Yes, Kenny Bell, that's actually my problem. It's not moving. So what I'm going to do now is I'll just do it one by one, share screen. Hopefully the next time that we're going to do this, we won't have any of these problems. Okay, let's try this one if you can see it now. Okay. There you go. I'm seeing it already on my Facebook Live session.

So commercial advertisements. Lanny Caballero and Carnashan Mariela Boo Enria? Ezil Kenny Bell. All of them mentioned that commercial advertisements, as the phrase is considered redundant. Why redundant? Because therapy commercials are advertisements. So what are you supposed to do, guys? You don't put them together, you drop either of the two. So in correcting the error, you're supposed to write the commercial or the Advertisement, but you don't put commercial Advertisement together. Now let's move on.

It says here on the boob tube. Before I explain what the error is, will somebody tell me what is boob two? Again, I need you to use the comment section of our Facebook Live session. This is for me to know that you are with me. We have to work together. It is 9.09 duty to teach, but it is your duty to learn. Guys, will you please tell me what is wrong with boob tube? Anyone who can tell me what boob tube is?

Okay. Nancy Ching Calderon responded and she said television. She's actually correct. It's just that in the IELTS we do not encourage words that are not easily understood by an average person. That is why people in the Academy use the term boot or idiot box in pertaining to television. And why is this the case? That is because for most academicians, the more you expose yourselves to television, the more idiot you become. That is because the television does not necessarily present us with information that we need in order for us to become better people. But sometimes television presents info that's just trivial meaning to say it's not really the information that will help us to become better people. It's just that not everyone understands boob too. So iOS examiners prefer that you use television, which is easily understood by an average layman. There has to be clarity and communication in the IELTS, there is no sense when you write and the other person does not understand what you are writing.

Now let's continue are ideally designed in order to publicize a particular product in this way. Look at these guys, the vast plethora of the masses. Before we continue, will someone tell me what is wrong with that? Lester, so far, a lot of people have responded to the previous question. So there's Jackie Calderon, there's Marie Antoinette Cruz, there's Shane, Shane, there's Roughenedio, there's Glenda Marie Pinocchio, there's BTC Shane, there is Arlene David, let's move on to vast plethora.   Will someone tell me what is wrong with vast plethora? Mariela Boo responded by saying it's redundant. Rose Anne also mentioned it's redundant. Class, look at this one. Plethora is a word that's not understood by everyone. There are plenty of people worldwide with this notion that because IELTS is an English examination, you have to impress the examiner by using fancy words. The problem with this one is there is a possibility that the person reading the essay might not understand if you're trying to use big words. Our goal in IELTS writing is to express, not to impress. So instead of using that plethora, what this 9.9 suggests based on what I have learned from more than 20 examiners I have met in my lifetime, ever since I started attending writing workshops that were conducted by examiners. They would rather you settle for something that's easily understandable, like the overwhelming number of the masses. That's more like it in the IELTS.

Now let's continue are made knowledgeable in the different facets of a particular product for consumption. Notice that I highlighted particular product. Why? Because exactly the same words appeared in the previous sentence. If you go back to the third line of this slide, it says publicize a particular product. It's just that if you look at the second sentence, exactly the same words were used particular product. So what is the suggestion of IELTS examiners? You have to do everything in your capacity to replace the words without using exactly the same terms. So may I ask the attendees for tonight? Let us replace particular product. Will you please give me alternative terms for a particular product? I'm just waiting for the others to finish typing, knowing that there is a three second delay from Zoom or stream yard when it's shared on Facebook. Anyone here who would like to replace particular product? Hello to the 168 live viewers that we have anyone who would like. Okay, Amarachi Echewardo, thank you very much. Specific item for consumption. So I'm glad that Amarachi gave that as an example.

So moving forward, we have to avoid particular products. We also need to avoid specific item. That's because we already use it in the second sentence. Now let's see if you can see the next slide, because if not, I'm going to do what I have done in the last few minutes. I will stop sharing. And then, oh, guess what? Technology now is cooperating with me. Let's move on. Through advertisements, we are made aware of the existence of manufactured artifacts. Ladies and gentlemen, using the comment section, will you please tell me what is the meaning of the word artifact at the back of the mind of the writer? Maybe he was looking for words to replace product or item. The problem is the word artifact is not acceptable as an alternative because in the first place, artifact is not synonymous to product or item. Let's take a look. So far, there have been suggestions from other attendees to replace particular product. Thank you regine for using the word certain. Thank you, Pedro, for using the word certain.

Now I have someone who just responded to the question. It's Karen. Elizabeth. Yes. Artifact is more of a relic. Usually. Where do we find artifacts? In museums, exhibits, galleries? It's just that you do not manufacture artifacts. Usually, what do you do with them? You discover artifacts. If we are done with the word products, we're finished with the word item. Let us think up something to replace the word product and item and make sure that the word is appropriate in the context of this sentence. Thank you so much, Kenneth. Spiritual, that is an acceptable way of replacing products. So the suggestion of Kenneth goods, we have another suggestion. This one is from Catherine Ebaniez. Lapa commodity. Very good, Kenneth. Very good, Katherine, for providing alternatives to the word product so far would have me use product, item, and this time either goods or commodity as suggested by the live viewers.

Now let's move onto this one. Innumerable, recompenses and remerations in our dirinal lives. Wow. This one is something that we don't get to encounter in our day to day conversation. How you write in IELTS, how you speak in IELTS must resemble how you communicate in real life. Because what is IELTS assessing our ability to listen, read, write, and speak in casual conversations while we are maintaining an academic tone one by one, let's take a look at these words. What is the meaning of innumerable? The root word here is numeral. Now, if you put the suffix above, that means to say it's something we can count. Now if you put the prefix in before numerable, it's the other way around, right? It means to say something you cannot tell. Therefore, another term for innumerable is plenty. let's move on. What about the word recompense? Compense is synonymous to compensation or salary. Looking at the next underlying word, it says renumeration. The problem, though, there is no such thing as enumeration. Using the chat box, will you please tell me now what is the correct word in English? It's not enumeration, but it's supposed to be what? Let's wait for the 156 live viewers to respond. For those who joined us just now, what you're seeing here is an example of a wrong paragraph. So the problems, the underlying words, the issues have something to do with inappropriate vocabulary. So the error could be, number one, the word is wrong. Number two, the word is repetitive, or number three, the word is redundant. Thank you so much, Edric Dejarme, Nahan, Fable and Mayra Vera. You guys are correct. There is no such thing as remuneration. It's supposed to be remuneration. Correct.

Now look at recompense and remuneration. They are related to each other. So another error that IELTS examiners worldwide have noticed. A lot of people use several terms in pertaining to exactly the same idea but in the end they end up to be redundant. If I were you, stick to either of  the two, use the term compensation or Saturday without putting the two of them together. Now let's take a look at the next underlined phrase. Everyone understands the word lives. But what about diurnal? Look at the word day Diary Journal. So in this context, diurnal lives must be replaced with something like daily lives because there are several errors in this sentence. Let's go back to the top of that sentence. So now guys, how are we supposed to correct this one? Through advertisements, we are made aware of the existence of manufactured goods and of their countless benefits to our daily lives. That's how you're supposed to write in the IELTS. Now let's move on. Advertisers who are engaged by manufacturers are tasked to configure TV ads. One moment please. Before we look for the correct word, will someone tell me when do we usually use the word configure? To configure is to find out something that is wrong. In this case, we do not configure TV ads. Why is it that when watching television shows or movies, there is such thing as executive producer, we have production managers and production assistants at the same time. That is because the ideal word when dealing with TV shows, movies and ads is produce. So we cross out the word configure and we replace it with produce. Let's continue produce TV ads that will vividly parade the pleasant points. I understand that when you use the word parade, it means to say you are introducing something to the people around you or to the audience. But if you look at this sentence, the word parade might be inappropriate. It's out of context. So the suggestion of IELTS examiners is to stick towards that are easily understood. So in this case, that will vividly show or highlight. Let's move on. While I read this one, I need you to think of the meaning of the word invagal. Let's continue the pleasant points of products in order to inveigle potential customers to purchase. Guys, the word invadal is something that we don't use regularly. Say, for instance, when you go to McDonald's or you go to KFC, the cashier is not going to tell you, oh, excuse me, sir, or ma'am, I'm going to invade you to upgrade your fries and drinks. Having said that, the word invadal is something that we need to avoid in the IELTS because itdoes not contribute to clarity in communication.More often than not, it causes what?Misunderstanding or confusion.So now, using the chat box, will you pleasetell me what is a better term for invagel?Okay, Jing Estim used the term lure.I think Jing is correct.Here's another suggestion, this timefrom James Nexon attract. Very good.It's more appropriate in the context of this sentence.Christopher Domingo recommended catchthe attention off. Perfect.This one is from Nahan Pable atrapKenny Bell to influence or to encourage.Hanna said persuade Edric.Use the term entice.You know what, guys?All of you are correct.All of those are better alternatives.So calmly avoid the word in bagel,but you may settle for it.Persuade, encourage, attract, entice, lure, and so on.

Now let us move on to the next slide. It says here one good example of this technique is by enlisting the aid. Guys, may I ask you, when do we use the term endless? Apparently, there are two possible contexts of the word enlist. Number one is to enroll, say, for instance, you enroll in a course or you're going to list them. In this case, you do not enlist the aid. Usually, what do we do? We ask for the aid, so avoid enlist. I'd rather that you go for ask. Looking at the next highlighted word, prevailing celebrities. The moment I hear the word prevailing, what enters my mind is that something it can be compared to communicable deceased, right. In this case, what is the best adjective or best descriptive word to be used in dealing with celebrities? Okay, James Nexon said famous. That is correct. So famous celebrities better than prevalent celebrities. Moving on to the next underlined word sanction. Guys, what is the meaning of the word sanction? Usually we use this term when we want to impose punishment on something. Say, for instance, we sanction the citizens who are non law abiding, the violators, so to speak. It's just that celebrities do not sanction products in the first place. Products do not have life, so they won't feel any punishment. Most of the time. What is it that celebrities do? Okay, thank you. Sgrtn rinse. They promote that's right. Looking at the next underlying term, it's products. But wait a minute, we're done with the word product, right? So far, what are the suggestions? Earlier we use the terms item goods. The word commodity was also suggested by your classmate. So if the word goods was used earlier, then now is the perfect time for us to use the word commodity. So once again, one good example of this technique is by asking for the aid of famous celebrities to promote such commodities. Let's now move on to the last sentence. People who venerate them. Guys, may I ask you, when do we usually hear the term venerate? Definitely we don't use the term venerate in pertaining to people. Most of the time the word venerate is used in the context of what? When do we use venerate? When you're dealing with the Saints, the gods people as they are, we cannot venerate celebrities. So what do we do with celebrities? Maybe we just admire them or we idolize them, but we do not venerate. Thank you, Christopher Domingo, for pointing out that the word venerate is used with Saints. Same thing for Hannah Flores. You idolize something. Now what do we do with celebrities? We admire them. We idolize them, but definitely we do not venerate them. Now let's move on. Would automatically hanker after the same products? It's such a pity that it took you five minutes to think of the word hanker. It's just that your hanker is wrong. You could have used those five minutes in thinking of a different word instead. So what could be a better alternative here? People who admire them would automatically go after the same products. So now, ladies and gentlemen, we are done with product, item, goods, commodities. Anything else that you'd like to suggest to replace the word product? We still have more than 140 live viewers for denied another term, perhaps, aside from product. Okay, merchandise. Thank you so much, Cathy Cogana.  thank you, Katherine Ibaniaslapa, for giving exactly the same term as an alternative to product. So for tonight, we have learned four other words that we can use in our output to avoid using the word product the second time around. And what are those? Item, goods, merchandise and commodities? Let's continue that these celebrities are sanctioning. The word celebrities here is used correctly. The only problem is repetitive. If you go back to the same paragraph, the previous sentence, the word celebrities was used already this time around. Let's think of something different. To replace celebrities, why not use something like these personalities or these endorsers? Now, the last word sanctioning. Remember, it was used in the previous sentence. It's just that that one was used incorrectly. Unfortunately, it was repeated in exactly the same product and still it's wrong. So earlier, if we use the word promote this time around, why not go for something like endorse? So what I have shown you guys is an example of a problematic paragraph highlighting errors pertaining to vocabulary. Now for our next slide, what we're going to do is to look at a problematic paragraph. But this time around, we're going to focus on grammatical errors. So for our grammatical errors. Okay, what I want you to do now is to put yourself in the position of your coaches to identify the error and correct the error. So, guys, here we go. Literacy is fundamental for learning at school. Apparently, preposition is a common area of difficulty. A lot of people have problems in dealing with in add on by with two, four from, and so on. So now, using the comment section of our Facebook Live session, will we please replace the word at? What is the proper preposition for us to use instead of at? So while you're thinking in add on, we usually use the word on when you're pertaining to a Street, Avenue, road, or highway. What about Inn? We use the word in most of the time when pertaining to a place with a defined territory. Say, for instance, a town, county, municipality, city, province, state, region, country, continent. We use the word at when we are pertaining to a very specific address. So if this is the case, we cannot use the word on because it's not a street or Avenue or road or highway that we are dealing with. At the same time, we cannot use the word at because there is no specific address provided. In this case, the ideal word to use is in correct. Now let's move on. The next error has something to do with preposition once again. So while I read this one, kindly used the comment section. Let's replace the word in with the correct preposition. It has an impact blank. Can you fill in the blank? What is the proper preposition for us to use instead of in? Kenny said at. What about the others? Impact blank? Okay, Joe said on. What about the others? Is it impact two? Is it impact with impact four? Zane responded on. Christopher, recommended to. Joanna said on. Amarachi said on. Ladies and gentlemen, it has an impact on instead of learning big words, what I need you to do is to make sure that you know which preposition to use correctly. Why? In IELTS we go for accuracy more than anything else. If you are accurate, that's when you move to the next level. That's when you learn the fancy words or the uncommon words. But I always go back to the fundamentals and basics. You cannot move on to the next level if you are not familiar with the basics. So let's go for accuracy first. Before you even try to use big words, let's continue impact on an individual's ability to participating. While I explained the error, I need you to tell me the correct form of the word that we are supposed to use in this sentence. Two is always followed by the simple form of the verb. That's why you do not write to participate. You do not write to participating. It has to be what to participate. Thank you so much, Hannah Flores. Moving on to participate in society and to understand important public issues. For our next sentence, it starts with the word end. Before I explain the error, will you please tell me the word end belongs to which part of speech is and a noun, a pronoun, a verb, an adjective, an adverb, a conjunction, or a preposition? Once again, the word end is highlighted because it's not in its proper place. So before I explain the error, will you please tell me the word end belongs to? Which part of speech is it a noun, a pronoun, a verb, an adjective, an adverb, a conjunction, or a preposition? Okay, we already have the correct answer, and this one is from Poline me Santilipe. It is a conjunction. The word end is supposed to connect words within a sentence, but it must not be written in the beginning of the sentence. That is why to correct this sentence, drop the word end. We can use this one in the beginning of an informal sentence, perhaps in speaking where it's supposed to be casual and conversational. However, in the context of the writing subject, we must stick to formal tone. Having said that, the word end must appear in the middle, not in the beginning, not in the end of the sentence. Let's continue. It provide look at the word provide. This word is in the plural form, but if you go back to the subject, it is in the singular form, right? So what are we supposed to do? It provides we usually add the letter S to the verb to denote singularity, so it provides the foundation upon which skills needed in the labor market. The word labor is underlined, not because it is wrong, but this is a friendly reminder to all IELTS examinees worldwide. The moment you start with American spelling, it has to be American spelling all throughout. If you start with a British spelling, it has to be British from beginning to end. It is a mortal sin in the IELTS to combine British and American spelling in exactly the same essay. So to give you an idea, in America it's spelled S-L-A-B-O-R. In Britain it's spelled as L-A-B-O-R. Some people assert that British spelling usually has more letters as compared to American spelling. So I'll give you more examples. Say, for instance, the word program in America is spelled as P-R-O-G-R-A-M. However, in Britain it's P-R-O-G-R-A-M-M-E-I also need you to know that for the word traveling, American is spelled with one L. For British traveling, it's spelled with the double L. However, I'd like to remind everyone that British spelling is not always longer than American spelling. Let's consider the word defense. In America it's D-E-F-E-N-S-E but in Britain it's D-E-F-E-N-C-E. So notice exactly the same number of letters.It's just that in America they use letter S,but in Britain they use the letter C.Or another example to prove that Britishspelling is not always longer than Americanspelling for the word enroll E-N-R-O-L-L.If it's in America, but outside ofAmerica it's usually enrolled with one L.So we have just debunked that misconception thatBritish spelling is usually longer than American spelling.Let us continue.The next underlined word is. Now you know that it's wrong because it'sunderlined, but let's replace the word is.What are the alternative words that wecan use in replacing the word?Is it supposed to be had?Is it was?Is it have?Is it had?This is what you're supposed todo when you edit your work.Remember, never submit your outputwithout proofreading the errors. Why even the award winning writers commitmistakes when they are writing?Because to commit a mistake is part of human nature.To Earth is part of our essence as humans.Moving on, identify the error before you correct it.The problem here it's not is because theword that you're supposed to use as basisand determine the verb is not market.It's supposed to be skills.That's the problem in English. Why?The subject matter is not alwaysthe word before the linking bird.Sometimes it's over there inthe beginning of the sentence.So if our subject here is skills, then it's notsupposed to be is, but it's supposed to be R.

Moving forward, how are we supposed to rephrase this one? It provides with the letter S, the foundation upon which skills needed in the Labor L-A-B-O-R just to make it consistently American from beginning to end. Market are built. As I'm looking at the suggestion of the attendees. Okay, this is not to take it personally against Joanna, Madonna, Michelle, Annie, regime, aura they used the word was. What is your clue? Everyone goes back to the first sentence. It says literacy is fundamental. The word is apparently is in the present tense, which means to say the entire paragraph has to stick to the present tense. Having said that, you cannot use the word was had where? Because all three of them are in the past tense, you cannot time travel from one tense to another. Well, it's like in real life, right? Past or rather, present and future can actually be together. Why that's? Because your present may still be your future, but in real life, past and present can never be together. Now let's move on to the next slide. This one, it says technology and the science behind it permeate all aspects of our lives. Guys. They're rule in English words in between commas are not part of the subject. So what are you supposed to do? You go back to the word outside of the hummus. So technology, that's singular permeate. That's plural. So write it this way. Technology permeates subject and verb must agree with each other. So technology permeates all aspects of our lives from how we work and communicate to what we shop. Just literally drop the word act and how we pay our bills. The complexity of today's world mean, guys, what's our subject here? Complexity. Complexity is singular. Therefore, the complexity of today's world means moving on, which individuals need to have some level of proficiency in reading, mathematics, and science in order. Blah. No one says in order for so. Now let's correct this error. Let's replace the word for what is the appropriate preposition. It has to be what in order. Once again, the complexity of today's world means which individuals need to have some level of proficiency in reading, mathematics, and science in order to correct, to understand and participate fully in economic and social life. Well, earlier you have read examples that are flawed. They contain errors and mistakes. But this time around, I'm going to give you a model paragraph answering the question, do you agree or disagree with the statement that technology is beneficial to society in IELTS writing tasks to the usual types of questions include agree or disagree. Discuss both views. Open ended questions. Do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages? Now, if this is the question I have with me, here a sample introduction that was contributed by our quadruple Niner, Sir Philip Edward Aitana, who got 9.0 overall banks or nine in speaking, nine in reading, nine in listening, and an eight in writing. That means the sample introduction that I'm showing you guys is worthy of 8.0 in writing. That's because it's the Great Serpent got when he took the IELTS. Now may I read the sample introduction for you? The increasing reliance of modern society on the efficiencies brought about by technology has led to the widespread use of gadgetsin their incorporation into everyday life. So, period. Notice I highlighted the words the keywords that must be present in the introduction in what are those? There's the word technology, which is the main topic. There's this concept of dependence on gadgets and technology. That's why Philip thought of something different. He used the term widespread use.

Now let's move on to the second sentence. Some of these tools have become so widely used that possessing them has become a necessity to function effectively. Writing has to agree or disagree always  requires a stand in the introduction. In what is the standard stand? Although there are advantages to this, I believe it does more harm than good to the community. When I met Global Examiners, they noticed that majority of the IELTS candidates worldwide. And I'm not pertaining to just the Filipinos, but everyone taking aisles on Earth, more than  50% majority of the candidates use. I agree. I disagree. How will your writing tasks stand out from the rest if you use exactly the same words that other candidates are capable of using? That's why in this case, I need you to tell me what is the stand of Philip? Did he agree? Did he disagree? Notice he mentioned his stand without using the overused words. Agree and disagree. What is your clue, hero? It does more harm if you go back to the question, is technology beneficial to our technology is beneficial to society? Agree or disagree? Because Philip wrote, I believe it does more harm. That means, according to him, technology is not beneficial. So he decided to disagree with the statement. Sometimes people are saying, but I think that is wrong because technology is actually beneficial. Ladies and gentlemen, people all over the world. An important lesson that you need to remember in IELTS. There is no moral judgment whatsoever of your answer. Agree is strike. Disagree is strike. But how will your examiner agree you this is based on how you explain your side. Why do you agree? Why do you disagree? You need to have a sound judgment in reasoning. Okay, now, yes, you are correct. He decided to disagree, but he did not use that same word. That's overused by candidates all over the globe. Now, I cannot show you the sample body because this is just supposed to be a bonus class. But now let's take a look at the sample conclusion. If you want to screenshot this one, go ahead. By all means. For you to have an idea how you're supposed to put an end to your essay in writing tasks. So I'll read it first, then go back to the important words and phrases. Here we go. Sample conclusion. In conclusion, the society owes much of its progress to the capabilities given to it by technology. But here's the big but guys communities prosper primarily not by the strength of its tools, but by the passion and ingenuity of those who use them. I assert that a nation that allows its fascination with machines to victimize its men, cripples itself with a disability that is ultimately self destructive. Now, in your own words, I need you to evaluate the quality of Sir Philip Edward iconic conclusion. What do you think of this conclusion? English wise, grammar wise, vocabulary wise, or ideas wise? While you are typing your thoughts in describing Sir Philip's sample conclusion, let me go back to what you mention in his body. Because, like what I've said, this is supposed to be a bonus class. I did not show you the entire thing in his body. Sir Phillip actually highlighted the advantages, the benefits that humanity got from technology. It made our lives easier. It gave us access to quite a lot of things. There's ease, there's convenience, there is comfort. The only problem with technology, the reason why Sir Philip decided to disagree with the task description is because technology is a tool for discrimination. Because, let's admit it, not everyone has equal access to technology. Only people who can afford technology have access to it. So instead of helping everyone, technology favors only those who are rich and privileged, because they are the only ones who have access to technology. That's why if we go back to Sir Philip's conclusion, the society, the community needs to thank technology in all the ways that matter. That's what he wrote in the first two lines. However, there is this emphasis that nations, societies, communities become prosperous not actually because of technology itself, but because of the people behind the technology, putting premium emphasis on people instead of science and technology person. So for Sir Phillips conclusion, he said the last sentence, a country that allows its admiration for technology to control the people is actually suicidal or self destructive. In the end, I hope you were able to take a screenshot of the sample conclusion. I need you to read it all over again because this is the kind of English that will allow you to get a high score in the writing subtest in the actual examination. Why? Because, number one, the idea is not superficial. It's rather uncommon because most of the time people think that technology is beneficial. But here's what Sir Philip is doing. He presented us with a different view of technology, that it's more of discriminating and harmful than an equalizer reading served Philip's conclusion. He did not use big words just to intimidate the reader. He is using words that are easily understood and presented in a very Scholastic tone. Now, as I was told, I am given 45 minutes for this presentation when we started at 10:00 P.m., but now it's 11:09 P.m. Philippine time. I actually prepared a presentation for reading, discussing true false, not giving, and some sample exercises, but I don't think we still have the luxury of time. So 9.09 is supposed to present once again here at Kinetic College on June 27. So before I move on to the question and answer portion, let's use the next few minutes to solicit ideas from the crowd. Like number one, what is it that you'd like 9.0 Niner to feature on June 27, would you like number one, the discussion of true false not given. So that is one option. Number two, would you like to see Sir Brian Martin Shawson make an essay on the spot? Like you provide him with a question and he's going to come up with an essay in front of you guys. Or number three, would you like us to feature Philip Ipana, who got nine in speaking? You throw the questions and then he'll answer the questions exemporaneously. Or if you have other suggestions, maybe you want free lessons and grammar or vocabulary, just shoot it. Just use the comments section. Okay. Ms. Jennifer is very supportive. I'd like to thank her for being there for all the Connetics nurses. The reason why Connetics is able to produce dozens of passers every single month and sometimes 100 passers in one month is because Ms. Jennifer is always there to respond to the needs of the Connetics nurses worldwide. Even if Miss Jennifer is based in the United States, she communicates with everyone from all continents just to make sure that their preparation is going smoothly. And hopefully when they take the IELTS, they'll get the required 7.5 over all that score in order for them to go to the United States of America. From all the nurses from all the frontliners worldwide, a big fat thank you, Ms. Jennifer. So Sir Fan, also known as Marcus Aurelius, said, we actually love all of them. You can do the true false, not given session. You can focus on the on the spot writing. You can have the on the spot speaking. So far, we have three votes for number two, one vote for number three. And here it's Annie Shasas Morgana Marjana saying thank you and you're welcome. Apart from the Filipinos who are present here tonight, I've also noticed that we have a lot of friends from Latin America and Africa. 9.9 is determined to help you guys in getting the required band scores in the IELTS. That is why for non Filipinos, I repeat, non Filipinos, you can send me a personal message on my Facebook account and I will schedule a free one on one coaching with our instructors. Like what I have said we are non native speakers but we have taken the examination to establish credibility and reliability. Like you guys, we are non native speakers and we understand the needs of people whose first language is not English. And because of this we'd like to offer a helping hand free one on one coaching. So if you are not a Filipino all you have to do is to message me directly on Facebook so that I'll create a group chat together with my coaches and instructors for you to be given that one in a lifetime opportunity of free one on one coaching in this Egyptian subtitles. So far, do we have anything from the audience? I think it's over time. We started at ten but now it's already 11:14 p.m. But I hope that I did not really waste your 60 minutes. I hope you learned something from our presentation tonight and getting thank you here. You're welcome guys.  So before I end my presentation for tonight I'd like to thank Ms. Melanes, Ms. Luciana, Ms. Jennifer, Ms. Tanya, Ms. Lisa, everyone at Connetics for making this possible. Hopefully you will also learn more when you attend the other live classes of Connetics College featuring Swoosh, English aspirer, RN and iPASS online Academy. Having said that, thanks for tonight I have to sleep because I have face to face classes tomorrow at Niner. Pcampa. Espana Manila this is Urban Temporal from Manila staying good evening.
