I sometimes think that the world that I live in is very different to the one that IELTS test-takers live in. For example, when I was a child, my sister and I played a lot of computer games. The result? A lot of happy memories and good hand-eye coordination. However, if you ask IELTS test-takers what the result of playing computer games is, the answer is always the same: blindness, lack of social skills, and maybe, a life of crime!

Episode Notes
In IELTS overgeneralising is specifically mentioned in the band descriptors as a mistake that stops students getting an 8.0 for Task Response or higher. So, if you are a student who is looking for the very highest scores, then this episode is for you!

In this episode, we will discuss

  1. what hedging is and why you should use it
  2. how to come up with ideas that are less "dramatic" for your cause and effect essays
