Do you think people can be happy without much money?

My name is Jose and I took the IELTS test examination 3 times. My results in writing were as follow 6,6.5, and 6. I was quite shock when I got my last result, as for my third attempt I studied harder and I knew more vocabulary. As result, I checked the IELTS criteria and I found out for the first time that I was not using complex and compound sentences in my essays! I believe other students are making the same mistakes as well. Many people on the internet advice to check old essays in order to imitate them. However, if you do not know the theory behind each sentence construction, it is very hard to imbibe the knowledge. It would be very beneficial for the community if you emphasize this point in one of your videos.

What other factors contribute towards happiness?

Lending money more on public services instead of spending any music and theatre would not be ever fruitful, and I believe authorities must invest in them.


Can you let me know what type of essay question is this.

More and more businesses as well as individuals are choosing to communicate either professionally or socially using technology rather than being face to face.


Why do you think that is the case?

Is it correct to write therefore in the middle of the sentence. For example you have written “it does not necessarily follow that people without money are, therefore, unhappy.

If the question starts as “can people be happy without much money” instead of starting “Do you think people can be happy without much money”, still do we need to give my opinion???

Current IELTS exam topics and questions:

if i divided this essay into
Intro:includes paraphrasing ,and thesis that includes my opinion
BP1: Admittedly,there r some benefits 4 money,,,,
BP2:Nevertheless,despite ,,,,,,
Conclusion:conclude my opinion
is it ok?

How can these problems be solved?

So in this task all that we need to do is simply answering the question ? It would be no need for a paragraph with our opinion ( like in the opinion essays) ?

What are the advantages of international communication online?

hi Liz
please mention all the styles of asking opinion in the question. Yet, I have problem to understand the question about asking for opinion.

Are there any disadvantages to this?

Hi Liz, your lessons are amazing! Thank you so much for all that information and useful advices. Regarding the latter conversation I’m always in doubt about plural and singular when referring to individual people in academic writing so could you please tell me in this sentence ”For instance, an accountant will never know that singing bring/s them/him? more happiness, if they/he do/does? not decide to make a change” should I replace all singular with plural?
Your help will be highly appreciated. Thank you once again.
