IELTS Writing Test www.jroozreview.com

One of the most common rules in writing is show don’t tell. Instead of telling that your essay will do this or that, show it instead. Discuss your opinions and include them in your essay and don’t just say that you’re going to. Using this sentence only duplicates the exam’s instructions and adds nothing to your essay.
