Development guide for article Writing IELTS

In the process of exam writing, IELTS, learners often focus more on aspects such as structure, vocabulary that sometimes see the light part, developing ideas for articles. An essay is appreciated only when the idea is used correctly and have the arrangement and development in a logical way. Today I will guide you how to develop the for the essay.
1. Narrow content:
When read the title (topic), psychological general of takers is worried if there is no knowledge about this field, especially about areas not specialized by yourself. So, the only way to customized solutions in the fear of “narrow content”, i.e. put the alien theme there about what's familiar, close.
For example, the topic “Does modern technology make life more convenient, or was life better when technology was simpler?”

Words like technology at first seems "big gun", but if you think 1 way closer then "modern technology" might be the everyday things you are using -> computer, network, facebook, smartphone,... Such as from a subject is very huge, you've narrowed down the content and can easily grow more.
2. Causes-consequences
The first thing to think of when reading 1 topic is the causes and consequences of the problem mentioned in the topic there.
For example:
“Some people think that technology is increasing the gap between the rich and the poor. Others think the opposite. Discuss and give your own opinions.”
With this, you need to brainstorm ideas in the direction: why "technology development, they increase the gap between rich-poor”?
Cause: The technology developed very fast, however only the new rich have the opportunity to reach these new technologies, even the poor can't because they don't have enough financial ability.
Effect: so the result is the rich are increasingly acquiring more is the new knowledge, new skill to work better, even the poor do not get necessary skill as computer user will ever do manual labor, forever poor. (note that title is Some people think and Others think the opposite)
Sometimes, not necessarily to think of all causes, the results of which just 1 in 2.
3. Reverse thinking:
For the topic discussion, 2-way, definitely you have to think in both 2 directions. However, even with the requirements, agree or disagree, also can develop according to the 2 sides to look objectively.
If you just want to discuss 1 direction (agree/disagree), then try to think from the angle of “the other side”, maybe you'll somehow created a rebuttal yourself. At times I join the discussion groups, divide the 2 sides agree and disagree, argue 1 feedback how well can people see their own absurdity, quarrel with members of their own always.
4. So books and find ideas against each other:
this Idea is similar noted above, however, more simple. When thought out main idea for 1 issue, you can develop the idea small by comparison with the opposite properties or similar.
For example:
“Although listening to music on CDs is very pleasant, it is not as good as a live concert.” -> comparison between listening to music on CD and listen live.
1 few words for orientation in the process of brainstorm ideas in this way is: Similarly, Likewise, too or However, In contrast, On the other hand, Meanwhile.
5. Take out the illustrative examples
Often, students will think the main idea first, then supporting ideas, and finally the examples. However, occasionally you should also try reverse process of see, know will be effective.
Example topic: “Outdoor activities help children develop fully.”
Instead of following the traditional entrance is to think about the benefits of outdoor activities, I will think of the specific example of outdoor activities such as playing sports, joining social work.
These activities will be useful, what for?
1. Play football -> physical development. This can become the main idea for 1 passage always.
2. Join the society -> development of the soul, know love, concern, help the people around. Apparently this is also 1 idea can grow
However, when using specific examples, you need to rearrange for logic.
6. Advantages & Disadvantages
Direction of development is very familiar and easy to deploy: evaluate the benefits and harms of the 1 problem, from that give an opinion agree or not agree.
Example topic: Studying the English language in an English-speaking country is the best but not the only way to learn the language. Do you agree with this statement?
Will normally follow the form listing the benefits, harms, and then start comparing to see which party easy-to-grow Italian, more.
I will list the advantages and disadvantages of learning English abroad.
Advantages:
- Have more opportunities to practice, esp. listening and speaking skills.
- The best way to learn a language is learning its culture
Disadvantages:
- Culture shock
- Homesick, loneliness
- Much more expensive than studying in your home country
All viewing 1 post sample analysis of this towards the advantage and disadvantage like I said:
Studying a language in a country where it is widely spoken has many advantages. It is, therefore, a good idea to study English in a country such as Britain. However, I believe it is not the only way to learn the language.
In the first place, most students in non-English-speaking countries learn English at secondary school and sometimes at university nowadays. Although their spoken English is not usually of a very high standard, their knowledge of grammar is often quite advanced. This is certainly useful when students come to an English-speaking country to perfect the language.
Secondly, studying the basics of English at secondary school is less stressful than learning the language while overseas. This is because students living at home do not have to worry about problems such as finding accommodation, paying for their study and living costs, and trying to survive in a foreign country where day to day living causes much stress.
However, there are obvious advantages of learning English in Britain. Every day there are opportunities to practise listening to and speaking with British people. Also, students can experience the culture firsthand, which is a great help when trying to understand the language. This is especially true if they choose to live with a British family, as exchange students for example. Furthermore, if students attend a language school full-time, the teachers will be native speakers. In this case, not only will students' speaking and listening skills improve, but attention can be given to developing reading and writing skills as well.
In general, even though it is preferable to study English in an English-speaking country, a reasonable level of English can be achieved in one's own country, if a student is gifted and dedicated to study.
7. Problem-Solution
For example:
“People spend too much time on watching TV. For example, some children stay up late watching TV in their bedroom instead of getting a good night's sleep. Consequently, they arrive at school tired and unable to learn. If households just have one TV in the main living area, then it will be easier to control how many hours are spent in front of it. This will lead to better results at school.”
-> The Main idea of this passage is the consequence of watching too much television, but pegged back by direction solved: Only 1 tv and only to in the living room and the result: better results at school.
8. Mind map
All the house can draw out of 1 diagram (mindmap) in the process brainstorm ideas to easy to arrange. There will be an article detailing instructions on mindmap in the IELTS exam, you pick up see.
