      Academic report writing demands the development of specific skills such as the use of formal language, knowing how to cite your different sources properly,and how to develop clearly your ideas in the body of the report, to name just a few.

      Undoubtely, these tips will help us to develop better and better academic reports.

      Absorbing video lesson Rebecca.

      Thanks for sharing your valuable experience with all of us.

      Regino

    Great! All the best.

carlos 2138

Thank you,Ms.Rebecca I like this one very much.

danny perez

Thank you Rebecca,

The video was informative. However, the excessive repetition of the words ‘okay’ and ‘alright’ was frustrating to some extent. The former was said 14 times and the latter was only four counts below it. This equates to the word ‘okay’ being uttered almost every 30 seconds of the video. In some instances these occurrences were only 5-10 seconds apart. This trait somewhat diminished the overall quality of this lesson.

Ihaveamessage

    Noted, and thanks. All the best to you.

    Rebecca

The video was informative and helpful.

rebecca…can you help me? actually my english in bad state..how can i master in english within 3 months? i need your idea…

sohn ieva

    Find an energetic and experienced teacher, join a class, read, write, listen, and use English as often as you can! If you are determined, you can achieve amazing results, but it does take a lot of effort. Have fun with it and keep saying “I speak English” every day, so you can start thinking of yourself as an English speaker. All the best to you.

2. Which of the following sentences would be inappropriate in an academic paper?
The committee can’t understand the reason for the labour dispute.
The committee cannot understand the reason for the labour dispute.

Can you explai why the second sentence was not right. ( whereas, in the first sentence they have used contraction)

Manoj Acharya

    Because the main word in the question “inappropriate” so you had to choose the first sentence…

    Puddy

    You are right. The first sentence would be inappropriate because a contraction was used. The second sentence is fine. All the best!

    Rebecca

I got 90%. Thank you Rebecca it is a smart lesson.

9/10 In the second question, I made a precipitated reading and as a consequence, I choosed wrong answer. Of course, we must never use contractions.
In conclusion, if you have an academic IELTS in your horizon, you ought to speak and write English, formal and objective.

Jorge Pedroso

According to this video, the considerable issue for me are that: 1) I do not know too much high level English; 2) I do not know which word is belongs to high level English…

Hi Rebecca, and everybody,
I was teached to write as you mention, but one thing disturbed me in the last days, it is about this quote:

“Here is a lesson in creative writing. First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you’ve been to college.”
Kurt Vonnegut

What do you think about it? THANK YOU

PabloPy

    Well, famous people can afford to make jokes! In real life, which tends to have pretty standardized expectations, it’s not so bad to write like you’ve been to college. All the best!

    Rebecca

This lesson has considerable improved my knowledge of Academic English. Once again excellent teaching. Thank you.

    Rebecca

Appreciated. very helpful.

Mjafari

Thanks for such an informative lecture. Although, I have done my studies with english as a medium of learning, but yes I find a gap. Essentially, I find this gap during speaking sessions or at the time of writing a research paper- an academic part. I believe in myself that I can improve both my writing and speaking part with your informative lectures. May God bless you – Amen.

loneharoon

    Thank you kindly. You do write well. I wish you all the best.

2. Which of the following sentences would be inappropriate in an academic paper?
The committee can’t understand the reason for the labour dispute.(correct as per quiz results)
The committee cannot understand the reason for the labour dispute.(correct as per your lesson tells)

Teacher Rebecca can you please justify above question? as you taught us in the lesson that avoid contractions in academic english use “is not” instead of “isn’t” but your above answer of question confuses me…Help!!

Amicable

sorry i misunderstood the word “inappropriate” mixing it with “appropriate”…please ignore my above stupid query

M. Arip Gunawan

Hello Rebecca,

I hope you will be able to read my comment because this is the only way I can ask you a question. I got perfect 10 on the quiz. By the way, my question is related to the IELTS exam. In IELTS academic writing are we still need to avoid idioms? Or it is just applicable to Universities and colleges?

Thank you for taking time reading my comment.
