Preparing for the IELTS test with Holmesglen Institute of TAFE
The writing component
The IELTS writing test takes one hour. In this time you are required to complete two tasks. TASK ONE is a report based on some graphic information provided on the question paper. With few exceptions, the graphic information will come in one of five forms – a line graph, bar graph, pie chart, table or diagram illustrating a process. You are required to describe the information or the process in a report of 150 words. This task should be completed in 20 minutes. It is important that you are familiar with the language appropriate to report writing generally and to each of the five types of report. TASK TWO is an essay based on a topic given on the question paper. You should write at least 250 words in 40 minutes. It is important that you keep within the advised time limits as Task Two carries more weight in your final band score than Task One. Remember that illegible handwriting will reduce your final score.

Writing task one: single line graph
Task description You will be given a graph with a single line. Your task is to write a 150 word report to describe the information given in the graph. You are not asked to give your opinion. You should spend around twenty minutes on the task. Task one is not worth as many marks as task two and so you should make sure that you keep within the recommended twenty minute time frame. What is being tested is your ability to: ♦ objectively describe the information given to you ♦ report on a topic without the use of opinion ♦ use suitable language to describe the graph

Countrywide Ban Needed

...CountryWide Ban Needed In today's modern society, almost everyone owns a cell phone. Although the use of a cell phone may be a convenient way of communicating, they should not be used while operating an automobile. Cell phone use while driving has dramatically increased over the past years in the U.S., and studies show that the risk of having an accident significantly increases when a person is talking or texting on their phone. Due to this increased risk, I believe Florida, as well as the other forty-nine states, should ban cell phone use while driving. Using a cell phone while trying to drive is not only a major distraction, it can be extremely dangerous or even fatal. In a recent study done by Strayer and Johnson, they found that "cell phone conversations made drivers more likely to miss traffic signals and react more slowly to the signals that they did detect" (Strayer and Drews 128). The awareness of one's surroundings is vital in safe operation of an automobile. When a driver "disrupts performance by diverting attention from the external environment associated with the driving task to an engaging context associated with the cell phone conversation" (Strayer and Drews 129). The U.S. Department of Transportation National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that the use of cell phones while driving is the number one cause of driving distraction leading to car crashes and accidents (Cramer, Mayer, and Ryan 181). Although many people......

Managerial Skills Needed by Teachers

...aggression, power, recognition and affiliation. Being a Mathematics teacher, in my opinion, the following strategies can be adopted to motivate the students: * The teacher himself/herself must be seen as being motivated Teacher motivation can be defined as “willingness, drive or desire to engage in good teaching” (Michaelowa, 2002, p.5). Hence, mathematically speaking, teacher, motivation is equivalent to efficient teaching and consequently, efficient learning. * Find suitable ways to make students love the subject One of the reasons why some students dislike mathematics and find it boring is the fact that they do not know about its application in real-life. Hence, the teacher needs to instruct the students about the real-life application of mathematics on the first day to make them aware of its importance in the everyday life and how, without mathematics, many things would be unachievable or nearly impossible. * State the aims and objectives of the subject matter This should be done on the first day of the course. It is important to make them aware what is expected from them and in turn, what qualities or behaviours they are expected to have at the end of the course year. * Let the students know that the teacher is always available whenever someone is having difficulties in his studies. * Set-up the classroom rules and regulations in collaboration with the students. * Use different teaching styles in order to match the diverse learning styles of the......

Mercy Needed for Killing?

...Mercy Needed for the Killing? Meggie, your family’s pet dog has recently turned fifteen years of age; that is one hundred and five if you are counting in dog years. Once a playful, excited, and enthusiastic puppy has now become an un-energetic, lazy old dog that has lived and experienced all that life has had to offer her. Meggie is faced with numerous unbearable diseases due to her old age and cries regularly and refuses to take her medication, for she is ready to face her death in-order to put an end to her misery. As Meggie’s guardian and caretaker, what action must you take in regards to Meggie’s continued life? Fully aware of your dog’s pain and misery, aware of the fact that she is waiting for the arrival of her death, ready to pass on to the next stage; should you be given the right to decide whether she continues to live her miserable life or to grant her wishes and put her to sleep? Should it be your decision to make? Of course not! It is Meggie’s life that is in question, and for that reason it becomes her decision, whether she chooses to end or continue living her life. Meggie’s decision to orchestrating her death by refusing medication is a parallel representation to a wide-spread argument across the world today, known as Euthanasia. While it is viewed as an unethical and demoralizing act to most people, euthanasia must become legal and recognized as a possible solution to those with terminal and catastrophic diseases within the United States of......

...The Psychologist I sleep to build walls to the world. To protect other people. No one would say that a person sleeping is not trustworthy. If there is, I’ll kick his butt in. First, I’d like to congratulate you, "You’ve seen me in my most trusting". I think a lot. I rationalize and interpret words and actions. Similar to what Psychologists do. I see intentions. Actual intentions and thoughts through people's eyes. Then I make correct prognostications just by observing. This is a privilege to me since I can manipulate. Similar to what psychologists do; there’s professional dissociation: But in my case, it's a selfish act because I’ll play. Habitual. Oftentimes, it results to some selfish and self-aggrandizing acts. Someone might be on hold for some delusions I’ve built. This could have made my conscience to haunt me. And I don’t like being hunted by my conscience. Because it makes me believe in Karma. It is better I’m seen with closed eyes, sleeping, for I can be trusted of not making persuasion through innocence. I'd rather don’t think than to hurt and be sorry. Unconsciousness is a sanctuary for me and you. ~Hannah Rheena Duldulao Truth Talambuhay ni Dr. Jose Rizal Si Dr. Jose Protacio Rizal ay ang Pambansang Bayani ng Pilipinas.

...In the story “The Moon and Sixpence”, the main character named Charles Strickland sacrificed everyone and everything just to follow his inner vision, which is to paint. He does not care about society as well as material things; he just lives for ideas and is indifferent to everything else. As a man of social strings attached, he is the heartless, selfish and irresponsible one but as an artist, he is surely the great, brave and devoted one. To begin with, Charles Strickland is the heartless, selfish and irresponsible person as far as an ordinary person is concerned. The story, as it is told, Strickland is “worthy member of society, a good husband and father, an honest broker”. However, one day in a natural movement of absolute freedom, he just leaves. Afterwards, in meeting after meeting with the narrator, Strickland proves himself to be nothing else but empty of normal response “Then, what in God’s name have you left her for?” “I want to paint” He just “want to paint”, which is an extremely mild way of putting that he needs to madly pursue a genius demon inside of him. He merely repeats “I’ve got to paint” until finally he is confronted with “you are a most absolute cab” to which he replies “Now that you’ve got that off your chest, let’s go and have dinner”. His dryness makes you laugh. But then you realize that he is seriously empty and the ordinary emotions turn to sadness and then disgust for him. He is absolutely indifferent and inhumane. He thinks that he......

Most of the students do not go to bed early, and often time they have to stay awake until the middle of the night in order to study, complete their assignments, participate in campus’s activities, or even some late night hang out with friends.

Corpral Punishment: Is It Needed?

...Corporal Punishment: Is it needed? Research shows that there is an ongoing debate over corporal punishment and non-physical disciplinary measures for children. This debate asks to numerous questions: Do you spare or use the rod? The results can vary for both, sparing the rod can be damaging to establishing order in your child. As well, using the rod can affect the child’s long term mental behaviors, social norm, and the parental relationship. An article by John Fletcher titled, “Positive Parenting, not physical punishment” he addresses some of the concerns regarding corporal punishment. “Is spanking wrong? Clearly, hitting anyone in anger or when losing an argument is bad behaviour. To do this to children sets a bad example and may only teach them that violence is a means to getting their own way” (J.Fletcher 2012) By exploring the need of corporal punishment as it relates to it effect on children’s cognitive behaviors to punishment, alternative punishment methods and non-physical discipline may prove to be the best disciplinary method for children today. According to Miriam Websters Dictionary, corporal punishment as it pertains to children is defined as “punishment administered by an adult (as a parent or a teacher) to the body of a child ranging in severity from a slap to a spanking.” (M. Webster n.d.) Corporal punishment as it relates to children is sometimes administered in a school setting by administrators or teachers, however most corporal punishment is......

Additional Funds Needed

...Financing Costs of Additional Funds Needed: A Modified Equation Approach By: Daniel T. Winkler Winkler, D. T. "Financing Costs of Additional Funds Needed: A Modified Equation Approach," Financial Education and Practice, Summer 1994, pp. 149-154. Made available courtesy of Financial Management Association International: http://www.fma.org/fm.htm ***Note: Figures may be missing from this format of the document The additional funds needed (AFN) equation is a popular forecasting model for estimating additional funds requirements (Brigham [3]). Academicians regard the AFN equation as an excellent pedagogical tool; practitioners find it highly beneficial for many forecasting needs. To apply the model, an analyst needs to know the amount of assets required per dollar of sales, the amount of spontaneous liabilities available per dollar of sales, the change in sales, and additions to retained earnings. Additions to retained earnings are calculated by multiplying the net profit margin by forecasted sales and the retention ratio. The equation is shown as follows: The first term on the right-hand side (RHS) of equation (1) is the increase in assets required to support the change in sales. The second term subtracts the increase in spontaneous liabilities associated with the sales increase. The third term deducts additions to retained earnings. As useful as practitioners and academicians find the AFN equation, it is subject to considerable estimation error when financing costs change...

Education Is Needed for Women

...Education is Needed for Women Education is one of the basic needs of human life. As a human being education is needed for women as well as men. Education is the only way for women to uphold their position in this male dominated society. Women’s education is needed in every society because without the contribution of women it is not possible for men and the whole society to cope up with dynamic world. Women have also the potential to do anything perfectly and it is seen that in some cases than women are more effective than men. At past, women were exploited by men. They couldn’t go outside also and kept inside the four walls. Because they were deprived from the light of education. Education was the only thing that made them aware of their rights. After getting proper education wpm en protest against all of exploitation, came outside and started contributing for the family, society. So it is seen that the freedom of women was only possible for education. Women should be educated because according to Nepolion, “give me an educated mother, I will give u an educated nation. That means, women do not need education only for their job, it also enriches individuality. An educated women bring up their child more effectively than an uneducated women. Because they have a knowledge of health, sanitation, birth control, education and many other things. An educated women can create awareness among the society about any danger and always chose the best things for her......
