Did you know…? You can see the ISS yourself. It is the third brightest object in the night sky. The light looks like a plane but it moves much faster. To learn when and where to watch out for it, go to http:// spotthestation.nasa.gov/.

Language tip The author says “‘get up’ is the wrong verb when there is no up!” So what can we say when astronauts leave their beds? Is ‘get down’, ‘get over’, ‘get through’ or ‘get about’ better? There are a lot of verbs that have ‘get’ and another word. We call these multi-word verbs.

Recognise the opinion of the writer. Use multi-word verbs.

‘Flipped Learning’ – an innovative approach Get Ready for IELTS’ flipped learning approach, in which students do pre-class preparation, maximises the usefulness of time spent in class ensuring teachers are able to focus on key skills development and exam strategies in the classroom. Here are the three steps to the Get Ready for IELTS flipped learning approach. Step 1 – Pre-Class Preparation

Step 2 – Skills Development

Step 3 – Exam Practice

Students prepare for their IELTS class with the language development activities in the online resources on Collins Connect. By learning vocabulary and grammar in advance, students can focus on learning the skills and strategies for passing the test in class.

In class, students learn the skills they need for the exam through the skills development activities in the Student’s Book. Strategies for achieving good IELTS scores are also highlighted. Teachers can support students as they work through the course.

Each unit in the Student’s Book contains exam practice which gives students the opportunity to practise the skills they have been developing. The format follows the actual exam and teachers can use this to check their students’ progress towards being ready for the test. This part of the Student’s Book can also be set as homework giving teachers further flexibility.

Alternatively, students can do this pre-class preparation in their Workbook.

Work on your... Accent

CEF level: B1–C2

Authors: Helen Ashton & Sarah Shepherd Clearer pronunciation for better communication Work on your Accent helps students to speak clear English that everyone will understand by softening the influence of their mother tongue. Professional accent coaches Helen and Sarah demonstrate how to pronounce each sound, and show learners when to use them. They also help students to recognise why their native language makes it difficult for them to pronounce certain sounds and which sounds they need to focus on. Includes DVD-ROM with visual and audio material illustrating physical articulation and pronunciation

Exercises help students practise the sound Work on your Accent

Lightly squeeze your lips together, all the way along.

2

Start to breathe out, and let a little air build up behind your lips.

3

Don’t let any air out through your nose!

4

Let your lips spring apart quickly, and continue breathing out.

The sound you produce can be voiced /b/ or voiceless /p/ (see page 15).

Not adding an extra puff of air for a /p/ sound. Make sure to allow a small extra puff of air as your lips spring apart if:

/p/ is the first sound in a word (‘pen’) or it is in the stressed syllable (‘appear’),

and

it is followed by a vowel

You don’t need this puff of air if the /p/ is followed by a consonant (‘price’), is unstressed (‘carpet’), or is at the end of a word (‘cup’).

The writer makes reference to the opposing point of view to indicate that he has ‘tested’ his idea.

Unit 12 – Task 2 Human beings have long struggled with the difficulty of ensuring both freedom and fairness in society. Some people argue that a good society is necessarily one that ensures equality for all. However, in my view, this is neither feasible nor desirable in practice.

Each body paragraph begins with a generalisation.

Firstly, it is difficult to define universal standards of achievement. For some, achievement means material success, for others it may mean something else: a simpleto but altruistic life, for Model answers with commentary help students example. Bill Gates and Mother Teresa were very This example understand what is expected in the IELTS test different but both achieved a great deal. Because supports the main people define achievement in different ways, it is point. difficult to determine what equality of opportunity might mean in practice.

Reading for IELTS The writer signposts each key point.

Secondly, people differ in terms of their talents. Some people can make the most of scanty resources; others do very little with inherited wealth or educational opportunities. Many highly successful individuals have had little of either in their early years, yet achieved a great deal. The relationship between equality of opportunity and personal success is not straightforward.

Finally, it is not easy to ensure a level playing field without damaging the incentive to do well. It is natural for parents to work hard in order to confer advantages on their children: private schooling, for example. It is difficult to see how equality of opportunity in education can be achieved without capping the aspirations of those who work hard.

GUIDE TO THE TOEFL® TEST

» CHALLENGE 3: “I have trouble talking about opinions.” SOLUTION: Know when you will be required to express opinions. Question 1 asks you to describe the opinions of the professor while Question 2 requires you to give your opinion. Knowing this information will help you prepare before you take the test. Use the table below to help you know when and how to use opinion language.

Guide to Reading The reading section is the first part of the TOEFL® test. It tests your comprehension of written English with a series of reading passages followed by a set of questions based on each one.

Definition

QUICK GUIDE:

Question

Whose Opinion to Give

Expressions You Can Use

Question 1: Academic Reading/ Listening Synthesis Task

State the professor’s opinion. The professor will clearly agree or disagree with the main topic and give reasons. Do not give your own opinion on this task.

• The professor feels that… • The professor says she supports… • In the professor’s opinion, X is good/bad • The professor agrees/ disagrees with…

TOEFL® Test Reading Section

Question 2: Give your own opinion Personal Experience about whether you agree or Task disagree with the statement.

The reading section tests your ability to understand written academic English. The section includes different types of reading passages that are based on a variety of academic subjects.

• understand basic academic vocabulary in context.

• understand how information is organized.

SOLUTION: Learn basic citation skills. On the academic reading / lecture synthesis task, you have to talk about attitudes that come from either a reading passage or an audio passage. Use the following citation expressions to indicate whether the information came from the reading or the lecture.

• understand inferences, relationships, paraphrases, and the purpose of a passage.

*The author/professor thinks/feels/claims that…

• answer questions within the given time.

*The author/professor agrees/disagrees/opposes, supports...

• quickly scan a written passage and understand its main ideas and supporting details.

*According to the passage, professor…

The reading section includes 3-5 reading passages. Each passage is usually 650–700 words long. A typical reading section consists of three reading passages, each of which will appear on your screen and remain there while you answer the questions based on that passage.

*In the conversation/reading/lecture the author/professor argues/states/makes the point that… *The author/professor supports X by saying/arguing/pointing out/giving an example of…

Questions

There are three different types of passages in the reading section: expository, argumentative, and historical. In addition, each passage is arranged according to a particular organizational style, which include compare and contrast, cause and effect, problem and solution, theory and support, and classification. For more information about passage types and organizational styles, see page 12. There are typically 12–14 questions per reading passage. The questions are multiple choice and can usually be classified as one of the following question types: detail, vocabulary, referent, sentence summary, negative fact, passage summary, function, add text, inference, table completion

Timing

Reading Passages

Targeted Skills

In order to do well on the reading section, you must be able to:

• In my opinion, … • While some people think that X, I … • I agree/disagree with the idea that…

You will have 60 minutes to read and answer the questions for a set of three reading passages.

When you do library based research, you usually have to work on your own. This gives you the opportunity to become a more independent learner and to show that you can think for yourself. These are qualities that are highly valued in academic settings within the English speaking world. However, working independently does not mean that your research is not connected to the work of other people. One of the main purposes of universities is to produce knowledge, that is, to create, evaluate and disseminate new information and ideas. Producing knowledge usually involves many scholars working in different times and places. When you do research as part of your course, you are learning skills which will allow you to participate in that wider effort. You have the opportunity to develop the ability to: ■

Create a research question and an argument to answer it Evaluate the research that has been done by others – that is, to consider it carefully and make judgements about it Disseminate your research by writing it up and submitting it for a mark, and, in some cases, by sharing what you have learned with other students on your course

How do you know if your research is good? What is research? Writing 978-0-00-750710-8 Glossary

In simple terms, when you do research, you are looking for information in order to answer a question. In academic settings, research can take many different forms depending on the subject discipline and the kind of question you want to answer. If you are studying a scientific subject, your research may take the form of an experiment to answer a question which begins with the phrase: ‘What will happen if…?’ if you are studying a social science, your research may take the form of a survey of a group of people’s thoughts, feelings or experiences. In any case, no matter what your subject discipline, at some point you will have to do some research which involves investigating what other scholars have said about the topic you are interested in. In other words, you will have to do some ‘library based’ research.

Research 978-0-00-750711-5 subject discipline = In an academic setting, a subject discipline is a particular topic or specific area of study.

In some parts of the world, students are judged according to how well they retain information given to them. In the English speaking world, when your research paper is being marked, the marker will normally use other criteria for judging how well you have demonstrated the skills involved. These are the questions the marker may ask themselves: 1

Has the student created a worthwhile research question (or interpreted the set research question in an interesting way)?

2

How well does the student know what other scholars have written about the topic?

3

How skilfully has the student evaluated the work of other scholars? 3

Animals become endangered for a number of different reasons. Some, such as the black rhino or the Sumatran elephant, are hunted for the ivory that their horns or tusks provide. Others, such as the Bornean orangutan, and many species of tiger and gorilla, become endangered when their habitats are destroyed to provide land for housing or farming, or by pollution from factories or rubbish. But by far the most worrying addition to the list of endangered species in recent years is bees. Any animal that becomes extinct or critically endangered creates an irreversible knock-on effect to the ecosystem. However, bees pollinate many plants which humans and animals alike rely on as a source of food. The disappearance of bees could create an international food crisis with devastating effects in as little as a few years.

The Colosseum (sometimes spelled Coliseum) in Rome is a great architectural triumph of the ancient world. This amphitheater, built in the first century BC, could hold 50,000 spectators. It was used for animal fights, human executions, and staged combat. The elliptical shape allowed spectators to be closer to the action. It also prevented participants from hiding in the corners. The arches are an important part of the building. They are an example of a Roman improvement to the simple arch. Each arch is

USAGE NOTE

10.67 With passives, be is often, but not always, kept after a modal.

used in the negative.

However, with perfect passives, you can just use the auxiliary have or has. For example, you could say, Have you been interviewed yet? I have.

‘ I don’t mind telling you what I know.’ – ‘ You needn’t. I’m not asking you for it.’ ‘ You must tell her the truth.’ – ‘ But, Neill, I daren’t.’

Note that when a modal with have is used for a passive or progressive verb phrase, been cannot be omitted.

Similarly, the verb is only omitted after the modal expressions had rather and would rather when they are used in the negative. However, the verb is sometimes omitted after had better even when it is used affirmatively.

I’m sure it was repeated in the media. It must have been. She was not doing her homework as she should have been. English sometimes add done to the group. For example, instead of saying He says he didn’t see it but he must have, they sometimes say He says he didn’t see it but he must have done.

Language and usage notes

‘ Will she be happy there?’ – ‘ She’d better.’ It’s just that I’d rather not.

10.73 You can also leave words out of to-infinitive clauses. Instead of using a full toinfinitive clause after a verb, you can just use to, if the action or state has already been mentioned. Don’t tell me if you don’t want to. At last he agreed to do what I asked him to.

He hadn’t kept a backup, but he should have done. American speakers repeat only the auxiliary verb have.

You can also do this in conversation.

He hadn’t kept a backup, but he should have. It would have been nice to have won, and I might have done if I had tried harder.

‘ Do you ever visit a doctor?’ I asked her. – ‘ No. We can’t afford to.’ Note that there are some verbs, such as try and ask, that are also often used on their own, without to.

Similarly, British speakers sometimes use do after modals. He responded almost as a student might do.

They couldn’t help each other, and it was ridiculous to try. I’m sure she’ll help you, if you ask.

American speakers do not use do after modals. Note that when the verb used in the first mention of an action or state is the main verb have, instead of using do after a modal in the second mention, you often use have instead. ‘ Do you think that academics have an understanding of the real world?’ – ‘ No, and I don’t think they should have.’

10.69 Usually, the clause with words omitted comes after a clause in which the action or state has been mentioned in full with a main verb. Occasionally, however, for a deliberate effect, it comes before the clause that mentions the action or state in full. The problems in the economy are now being reflected, as they should be, in the housing market

In conversation 10.74 People often leave words out in conversation in replies and questions. When this

Examples from Collins Corpus

happens, it can involve leaving out the main verb in the ways that have been explained above (see paragraphs 10.60 to 10.73). This is common with questions that show that you find what someone has said interesting or surprising, or that you do not agree with them. These questions always have a pronoun as their subject. ‘ He gets free meals.’ – ‘ Does he ?’ ‘ They’re starting up a new arts centre there.’ – ‘ Are they?’ ‘ I’ve checked everyone.’ – ‘ Have you now?’

meant. The question can consist of just a wh-word.

It was the largest swarm of wasps that had ever been seen or that ever would be seen.

contrasting objects and adverbials 10.71 Note that if you want to contrast two different things affected by an action, or two different factors or circumstances, you can put a new object or adverbial in the second clause, with an auxiliary or form of be.

‘ Someone’s in the house.’ – ‘ Who?’ – ‘ I think it might be Gary.’ ‘ But I’m afraid there’s more.’ – ‘ What?’ ‘ Can I speak to you?’ I asked, undaunted. – ‘ Why?’ – ‘ It’s important.’ ‘ We’re going on holiday tomorrow.’ – ‘ Where?’ – ‘ To Majorca.’ Note that you can also use why not. ‘ Maria! We won’t discuss that here.’ – ‘ Why not?’

Cook nettles exactly as you would spinach. You don’t get as much bickering on a farm as you do in most jobs. Survival rates for cancer are twice as high in America as they are in Britain. No one liked being young then as they do now.

Clear, simple explanations

USAGE NOTE

10.72 You can omit a verb after the semi-modals dare and need, but only when they are

Note also that you can use a wh-word after a reporting verb, especially why. I asked why. They enquired how.

However, the main verb is sometimes repeated. Can’t you at least treat me the way you treat regular clients?
