Whether you are going for academic or general mode, a.k.a dummy mode, please be inevitably interested. First, you can just show up looking like this.
Q : IELTS test has been widely used as an international standard for english testing. some people think that it is a good measure of english mastery, while some people don’t. to what extent do you agree or disagree.
The sample answer would be:
IELTS test has been done by international students for over a decade as an international english skills measurements testing. However, i dont think so because in the real world wide world, no one actually speaks and talks like that.
For example, in speaking test, how can you answer ‘ do you prefer sunny weather instead of rainy weather’ in the most academic way? Who likes to be outside and being all damped anyway. Duh! It is obviously a ‘Yes and No’ questions but if you are a very straight-forward-human-being, you will fail the test. As ridiculously mentioned above already, let’s talk a little bit further.
First of all, it is a very expensive way to test your english skills. I mean, with $330, you could have got Rebecca Minkoff Micro Motto Cross Body Bag on Farfetch.com or by physically entering the shop and greet, speak, try to bargain, and pay in ENGLISH.
Second, according to what most international students already been through and learned in school, college or university in English spoken country, it is obviously proven that we can speak english in ‘sexy’ accent, of course.
Last but not least, when you try to speak like the local, you might also fail the test. As it is socially accepted to use the word ‘ like’ a couple of times in one sentence. Like, I mean like you know like but it was like a little bit like much of likes. It is ironic, because actually by talking like that, we also have shown great social skill. Another mistake that most students made is ranting like Kanye on the Ellen show.
To sum up, IELTS test is an irony that most of international students have to deal with and opportunity cost for their more substantial lifestyle.
P.S. Good luck good if you have IELTS test coming!
