Mobile Day

The Story of My Mobile Day

My mobile is the closest friend I have. It really is because it connects me to my family, friends, and my home country in the blink of an eye. But this is not its only use. There are tens of other things that I do in my mobile because it’s easy to carry and I can have it everywhere I go. It has also made it possible for me to make best use of my spare time, which would have been wasted otherwise, like the time I’m on the subway, or I’m waiting for someone. So I use my mobile not only every day but every hour.

For me, the most useful apps are Google map, WhatsApp, Telegram, Chrome, and MS Teams. The moment I get out of home, I start using Google map. It is my favorite app as it provides me with all the information I need. It shows me my destination the moment I want to go somewhere, like a fast food restaurant near me; to be honest, it has introduced me good pizzerias. It tells me how to get there, and what is the working hours of my destination if it is an office or a store. So I always have something to consult with Google map. However, there are times that the app shows me longer distances for getting to my destination. I sometimes search the app for the shortest way possible but I see that the other way that I know is shorter than what the app suggests me. It’s very disappointing especially when you totally rely on the app, and you see that others who have not used it get to the destination faster. As a marketer, I recommend the team to try to provide more relevant and tailored results for the customer’s search in the shortest time possible.

The next app I use regularly is WhatsApp. I mostly use this app for connecting to my family. Both messaging and video call features of the app are what I need for seeing them and getting to know the latest news about them. It’s also of much use for sharing ideas with classmates. So the moment I want to connect with someone and I donot have the time or possibility of meeting them in person, this app comes very handy. I love everything about WhatsApp except that you cannot delete a message without leaving a clue for the receiver! Sometimes deleting a message in WhatsApp is more controversial than letting it remain as it is. As a marketer, I suggest to the app to remove this drawback and make deleting messages more convenient because it is very likely that the customer sends a message by mistake (in a messenger app).

Third comes Chrome. It’s the app that connect me to my favorite search engine, Google. Actually Google covers my know moments, want moments and buy moments. I think it is there for us to serve us with whatever knowledge we need for increasing our awareness based on which we make decisions like considering something, and concluding to buy it or not.

I also use Telegram quite frequently. It is the app for me to follow the news especially those about my country. I’ve been always made aware of the latest news through my Telegram news channels so it helps me to feel being update when using it. It also gives me the possibility of transferring large files easily.

And the fifth app I use, is MSTeams. I’ve started using the app since I’ve become a student. It is what I need when I want to follow my lessons, submit my assignments, connect to my classmates and professors, have online meetings and share ideas or files. My learning moments are usually facilitated by this app.

 From a marketing perspective, I believe the apps need to provide the customer with more tailored results through more precise personalization.

How to Improve Your IELTS Score with Less Effort

IELTS
Take IELTS Easy

Do you feel overwhelmed with IELTS countless recourses? Are you tired of spending days and nights studying IELTS material?

Many people feel anxious about taking IELTS test because they believe either they have to learn a great deal of new English material or getting the desired band score is beyond their abilities. But this is not always the case particularly in WRITING and SPEAKING skills. You can improve your score with much less effort than you imagine!

How? I’ll tell you in this post.

Let’s focus on IELTS writing (task 2). Your performance in this skill is evaluated based on four criteria described and published by IELTS owners in a document called IELTS Task 2 Writing Band Descriptors. The standards include:

1)      Task response

2)      Coherence and cohesion

3)      Lexical resource

4)      Grammatical range and accuracy

Familiarizing yourself with what the examiner expects to find in your answer sheet would go a long way toward achieving success. So continue reading this post to learn more about IELTS writing criteria and see how this easy step helps you to make the best out of your current English knowledge.

IELTS writing tips

 

1)      Task Response

The first factor to be evaluated is task response. Here, the examiner expects you to stick to the question. So

          Make sure not one part or even one keyword in the question has been left unaddressed.

          Do not go off topic and avoid including any irrelevant information in your answer.

          Keep an eye on question whenever you want to introduce a new idea, and continue elaborating it only if you find it in line with one part of the question.

          Number different parts of the question in order not to miss one, and draw a circle around keywords to remember what to include in your response.

 

2)      Cohesion and Coherence

Next component of IELTS writing standards is coherence and cohesion meaning how logically you have organized the information and how easily the reader can follow your ideas. There are three main tools that come handy here.

          Organize information in paragraphs, and focus on one main idea in each.

          Use appropriate punctuation all through the writing. Notice that comma (,) and full-stop (.) mostly suffice for both writing tasks so do not waste your time and confuse the reader by using a variety of punctuations.

          Use cohesive devices to clarify your logic but notice that overuse of such devices can hurt your score. So resist the temptation to show off all cohesive devices you’ve learned.

 

3)      Lexical Resource

As the third factor, your lexical resource, that is the range of the vocabulary you use, is evaluated. Obviously, the more vocabulary you know the better. But do not forget vocabulary knowledge is not limited to knowing a word and its meaning. The most important factor here is to know the other words that go together and the appropriate contexts. Therefore, the recommendation is

          Instead of memorizing tens of fanciful isolated words, focus on reviewing collocations of the words you already know.

          Try to choose more precise words from your lexis inventory while writing.

          Avoid using general words like issue, thing, stuff, and so on.

 

4)      Grammatical Range and Accuracy

And the last criteria, as mentioned above, is grammatical range and accuracy. The examiner expects you to use a range of grammatical structures including complex sentences in an accurate way. Do not panic! It is much simpler than it sounds. Use simple and compound sentences for the most part but keep the following tips in mind to improve your score.

          Fulfill the grammar requirement by simply using linking words you already know like because, while, although, if, and so on. This helps you to have some complex sentences in your writing.

          Try your best to make some complex sentences even if you’re not sure about their accuracy, as your attempt to do so is considered a positive quality.

          Keep in mind not to exceed word count limits too much because while there is no reward for that, it increases the risk of making more mistakes and losing marks.

 

In brief, IELTS wiring and speaking tests have some standards based on which you’ll be evaluated. Paying attention to these criteria effects your score way more than mere use of newly-learned complicated grammatical structures and strange vocabulary. As for the writing skill, addressing all parts of the question and avoiding irrelevant ideas, sequencing information and ideas logically, using complex sentences sporadically, and resisting the strange words are some hints that tell you how to use your current knowledge to enhance your score.
