Sample Band 7 Answer

Presently, English language is now considered as globally speaking language. In my perspective, the draw backs of english as international language are eclipsed by its benefits, and support of this opinion will be presented with elaborations to justify my inclination in the succeeding paragraphs of this essay, followed by a conclusion.

One of the primary advantages of english is that foreign students of underdeveloped countries are now getting admission in universities of developed states, because these countries are mostly english speaking countries. Moreover, students migrating for the purpose of acquiring knowledge are getting education from these states, and english has helped these foreigners in communicating easily with their teachers and native residents. Take US, Canada and Australia as examples of this situation, where youngsters from African and Asian countries are immigrating for attaining tertiary education, because english is helping them making connection with other nationals. In addition to this, english is assisting scientists to share their research findings with other researchers across the border. This means that selecting english as a dialect to convey message, because it creates understandable conversation in every part of the world. This is shown in research projects executed bilaterally by Chinese and Pakistani scientist, both countries have different national languages but with this language they are working mutually.

Conversely, one of the major concern in making english as widely used language is that new generation will forget their native language, if they are utilizing english in their learning institutes and in work place, they will definitely not going to speak in their traditional language. For instance, parents from Pakistan and India living abroad are facing these issues; their children are not speaking their mother language. However, this issue can be ameliorated easily if elders and parents speak their native language in their home with their offspring. It has been successfully experimented by my brother and his wife living in Canada. Thus, they convert this drawback in advantage, and their son is the only bilingual child in his peer group.

To conclude, in the light of aforementioned paragraphs, I reckon that merits of english that are helping foreign students to study abroad and facilitating scientists outweigh the solvable demerit which is elimination of mother language.

Examiner Feedback

TA – the writer’s view is clear throughout the essay// CC – there is a balance between cohesion & the use of conjunctions. I feel the bands are borderline and I don’t like the repetition of “This” in para 2. Using a participle clause would help// LR – “reckon”? “drawbacks” is one word as noted by Victor. . “experimented by my brother “? “solvable demerit”?// G – it should be 5 because of “english” but I’ll ignore this. Articles are a weak area and when put alongside other minor, but noticeable errors, means it is close to having faulty grammar. I’m concerned about the overuse of the present continuous tense (children are not speaking their mother language), There are a few verb pattern errors and clumsy sentences (“they will definitely not going to speak in their traditional language”/”This means that selecting english as a dialect to convey message, because it creates understandable conversation in every part of the world)
So, I’d say:
//TA – 8
// CC – 7 (closer to 6 than 8)
// LR – 7 (closer to 6 than 8)
// G – (5 if I note “english”). 6 (perhaps a little strict but the majority of sentences contain some kind of error
// Overall = 7.0.
