Gone with the Wind - Margaret Mitchell

Margaret Mitchell's epic novel of love and war won the Pulitzer Prize and went on to give rise to two authorized sequels and one of the most popular and celebrated movies of all time. 

Many novels have been written about the Civil War and its aftermath. None take us into the burning fields and cities of the American South as Gone With the Wind does, creating haunting scenes and thrilling portraits of characters so vivid that we remember their words and feel their fear and hunger for the rest of our lives. 

In the two main characters, the white-shouldered, irresistible Scarlett and the flashy, contemptuous Rhett, Margaret Mitchell not only conveyed a timeless story of survival under the harshest of circumstances, she also created two of the most famous lovers in the English-speaking world since Romeo and Juliet.

15 Days' Practice for IELTS Writing

15 Days' Practice for IELTS Writing



Every candidate in the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) exam knows that the writing section is a huge challenge. Moreover, the writing section of the IELTS is different when a candidate is taking the Academic or the General Training module. However, in general, every candidate has to practice hard to write correct essays for this section of the exam.


Writing

The IELTS writing section has different content in both Academic and General Training modules. In the Academic test, candidates have to interpret a graph or a diagram. They need to describe the data given using words and expressions that will best illustrate the facts on the data. In the General Training, candidates have to write a letter – formal or informal depending on the recipient of the letter – based on a given situation. Guide questions are given to help candidates organize their thoughts in their writing. The second task is an independent question wherein candidates are given a statement and are asked about their own opinion. The independent type of question is both in the second task in the Academic and the General Training.

Writing takes a lot of practice but with determination, it is possible for anyone to improve their writing skills in just 15 days. Here’s how you can compose good essays for the IELTS writing:

Day 1 to 5

- Gather information about the IELTS writing. Know how many words you need to write and how many minutes are given.
- Look for writing topics for both the first and the second tasks.
- For the Academic module, it is best to find different materials for graphs such as line, bar, and pie.
- For General Training module, find materials that would require candidates to write a formal, semi-formal and informal tone of letter.
- Know the criteria on how writing essays are evaluated.

Day 6 to 10

- Review on the rules of grammar and punctuation. It is important for essays to be grammatically correct and appropriately punctuated.
- Improve your vocabulary by learning expressions that will show the rise and fall of numbers, changes in the trends and the like. Choose words that will best describe the facts in the graph or diagram.
- Learn how to outline. Outlining makes the writing easier and the flow organized. Create a timetable on schedule of writing practices for the next five days.

Day 11 to 15

- Write at least two sets of writing tasks in a day. Have them checked by someone you are confident who is good at the English language.
- Be open to feedbacks on how you can improve your writing.

This kind of schedule is usually followed in an IELTS review center. In these centers, candidates are given lectures on grammar and writing skills. Following this, examinees are exposed to different writing exercises that will hone skills for the data or correspondence writing for the IELTS test. Writing teachers will check, evaluate and provide comments on how essays will be become more appropriate for the IELTS test.
