We use the present simple tense: • to make general statements about our world: The earth moves around the sun. • to show a pattern or general truth: People work in order to meet their basic needs. • with adverbs offrequency: always, usually, often, sometimes, never: People who are too lazy to walk often use their cars instead. • with expressions such as: nowadays, these days, today (with a general meaning): Many students today do their research via computer rather than through books. • for verbs showing opinions or feelings, e.g. believe, think, hope: I think that we should all do as much as we can to improve our environment. We form the present simple tense with the base form of the verb. We add s or es to form the 3rd person singular: I play I watch you play you watch he/she/it plays he/she/it watches we play we watch you play you watch they play they watch 2

When we talk about a specific large number, we do not add s to the number: 200,000 = two hundred thousand (not two ,'1ul'ldl'edthous{1l'l{is) 10,000,000 = ten million (not'lmillions) The noun that follows is always plural: There must have been at least three thousand students at the protest.

One is more formal: If I won a million dollars, I would probably take a year off and travel around the world. The president promised to increase the health budget by one million dollars. ~ We usually use numerals for numbers that cannot be written in one or two words: More than two million people attended last year. but: 2,001,967 people attended last year.

...Topic: Money can bring happiness, do you agree or disagree? (Within 300 words, at least 250 words; IELTS for GENERAL TRAINING) As the most significant symptom of wealth, possessing a large sum of money has become a unique pursuit of many people, especially young generation, around the world. They are convinced of that happiness can bought by sufficient money. However, they could neglect the fact that happiness is not just determined by one factor but many others such as your friends, relatives, and pleasant experience. In my perspective, happiness does not always increase in direct ratio to the rise of money. Focusing on the illusion that money brings happiness may have an unexpected adverse effect that may lead to a misallocation of time. For instance, when some one reflects on how money would change their sense of well-being, they would probably tempt to think about spending more time in leisurely pursuits such as seeing a three-dimensional movie or traveling abroad. But in reality, they would have to spend a large amount of time working and commuting and less time engaged in experienced happiness. On the other hand, it is undeniable that money has a brief effect on life satisfaction, particularly after we have got enough money to satisfy our fundamental need. For example, people who get richer would feel they are better than their peers. Nevertheless, they will soon make richer friends. Therefore, their relative wealth will not be greater than it was before; people quickly...

Đó là phần từ vựng dạng ACADEMIC (học thuật). Nên để đạt điểm cao trong kỳ thi IELTS, ôn luyện từ trong quyển 22.000 từ THI TOEFL/IELTS của Harold Levine là cực kỳ cần thiết. Mỗi ngày chỉ cần học 3 từ, thì lượng từ vựng của bạn sẽ tăng đáng kể.  Số từ vựng này giúp bạn trong cả 4 phần thi LISTENING / SPEAKING / READING / WRITING.  Ví dụ: Nếu bạn dùng từ: SIMULTANEOUSLY thay cho từ AT THE SAME TIME, hay PORTABLE thay cho từ EASY TO CARRY hay MITIGATE thay cho từ LESSEN … trong phần WRITING và SPEAKING thì điểm của bạn sẽ cao chót vót không ngờ luôn đấy. Chưa kể, nhất là trong phần READING, những từ trong quyển sách này xuất hiện nhiều lắm, và cả LISTENING nữa chứ.  Sự lợi hại của quyển sách này, chắc chắn chỉ khi nào học rồi, bạn mới thấy rõ.  Quyển này (nhà xuất bản TPHCM) đã hết bán rồi.

Writing Ielts

...ªIdeas for IELTS topics Who is this book for? Many students have no ideas or opinions about IETLS writing topics. Even if your grammar is perfect, you will not get a high IELTS score if you do not know what to write. This book is for students who want to go into the writing exam feeling confident that they have excellent ideas, opinions and vocabulary for as many topics as possible How do you get an IELTS score of 7 or higher? The key to a high score is not grammar, it is not your use of words like “moreover” or “in addition”, and it is not your use of phrases like “this is controversial issue nowadays”. To get a high score you need to use good “topic language” (words and phrases that are related to the question topic). You need good ideas in order to answer the question well. How should you prepare for IELTS writing task 2? There is an enormous amount of advice on my website Here is a summary of what I suggest: Spend more time preparing than testing When you test yourself, you find out what your level is, but you do not learn anything new. You will not improve if you only write test essays. Before writing an essay, study the topic and prepare your ideas, opinions and vocabulary. Steal my ideas If you only use the vocabulary that you already know, you will not learn anything new, and you will not improve. Practise linking my topic ideas together to write “perfect essays”.
