ok,but in British English articles should include important or academic words...instead of good : exceptional and so on...articles tend to be more formal than informal....

Write to the Top (6 months ago)
Each type of writing has its own style and purpose. You should look for examples of each to see how they are different. An essay id more formal/academic, an article can be a little more casual, and a blog is personal and fits your voice.

My name so far is ‘Do you have what it takes to be a Red Rose?’ Can someone help me think of a shorter way :)
Cee Jay (6 months ago)
Or you can simply say, "Are You a Red Rose?" Sir Adam, is my suggestion OK? Hehe. Sir Adam, I'd like to know: Is it OK to write "OK" instead of "okay"? And is it OK to capitalize only the first letter of the first word in the title? Thanks very much, Sir Adam. By the way, I must say you are a very effective teacher. A new subscriber here.

Write to the Top (9 months ago)
This video is a about writing an article for a language test, not as much for blogging. That said, some of the basics are similar. The best way to learn how to write a blog is by reading other popular blogs and seeing what structure works for them. If they're popular, there's a reason for it. Essentially, a blog should be easy to get through, with simple language and a clear purpose.

"however" is considered academic? interesting. as a not native speaker the distinction between casual and academic is very unclear. when learning english in school there is no distinction between them and overall i would say more academic language is being taught.
Write to the Top (9 months ago)
"However" is more formal than "but". These days, writers don't worry about these distinctions too much, but the test makers do :)

Leonardo Mesquita (10 months ago)
how can i keep the title short if the expression "The main cause of" has 4 words ?? is it a exception ??
Write to the Top (10 months ago)
I'm not sure I understand the question. There is no limit to the number of words, but if you make it too long it isn't an effective title. The main causes of Obesity is 5 words, which is ok. It can also be a question: what causes obesity? (3 words). Is this what you had in mind?

#Write to Top Adam, Taking into account this is a writing video lesson, I'd like to ask you about punctuation. I read an article which says "artificial intelligence uses a neural network - a software which is intended to mimic the brain - to formulate questions....; Can I use this sort of "brackets" to add information on my IELTS writing task 2?. Thanks
Emilio Durán (1 year ago)
Write to Top got it, many thanks Adam
Write to the Top (1 year ago)
Yes, you can, but be careful. I've seen many test takers use this incorrectly. Keep in mind that the em dash )the long one) is used to emphasize the point in between. You can also put the same information between commas: Artificial intelligence uses a neural network, a software which is intended to mimic the brain, to formulate questions. By separating, you want to draw some attention to it.
Shanks Akagami (1 year ago)
Thanks, mister Adam but my teacher confused me about I should use however in my article like using linking words and also use examples and she also said the article have to be 5 paragraphs in which first 3 in favor and 4th paragraph have to against and conclusion at the end
Shanks Akagami (1 year ago)
really !! what's up with my teacher
Write to the Top (1 year ago)
It sounds like you are describing an essay. In the article you are not making an argument so there is nothing to be for or against. An article is a description of something and it should be interesting.

+Write to Top Dear Adam, Please write an article about products by using same rules, you taught us in this video. can you do it please, in order understand better. Secondly make facebook page where people can share their writing so you can quickly review to guide us in the right path. please do us a favor this kindness.
Akky Yadav (1 year ago)
Thanks for reply, you are correct.It should have words around 1000-1200. More marks given to essay closely to the subject and in orderly fashion, written concisely. I have no idea where to start on improving my writing skills. I am bad with representing my ideas and flow. Some time i feel i should visit wren and martin and sometimes the other. Please help me with giving me direction.
Write to the Top (1 year ago)
I'm not sure I'm qualified to help with this exam. As far as writing is concerned, the same principles apply regardless of exam. If I noted correctly, this essay needs to be about 1000 words. It's more a question of organization and presentation of ideas. Anyway, I'll do some more research.
Akky Yadav (1 year ago)
Could you be able to do a little research on indian civil services exam organised by UPSC (indian governing body) and make lessons on improving answers writing skills as well as essay writing skill? *It will benefit a huge no. of people in india as same exam used to be given by 20 Million people every year in india.
