I have changed my mind...

Dear Simon, i have a question:
if someone asks the test centre to reassess the paper, does it affect on the further test? for example, checking the answer sheets with obsession for whom asked that before? because i asked to recheck a paper in january, i would like to know, does it affect on the 20 february test?

Hi there, Simon. Could you do me a favor and explain the answer?

IELTS trainer TEST 3 READING PASSAGE 2


The first Western cookbook appeared just over 1,600 years ago. De re coquinam (it means 'concerning cookery') is attributed to a Roman gourmet named Apicius, It is probably a compilation, of Roman and Greek recipes, some or all of them drawn from manuscripts that were later lost. The editor was sloppy, allowing several duplicated recipes to sneak in. Yet Apicius's book set the tone of cookery advice in Europe for more than a thousand years. As a cookbook it is unsatisfactory with very basic instructions. Joseph Vehling, a chef who translated Apicius in the 1930s, suggested the author had been obscure on purpose, in case his secrets leaked out.

I. In the 1850s Isabella Beeton published The Book of Household Management, Like earlier cookery writers she plagiarised, freely; lifting not just recipes but philosophical observations from other books.
If Beetons recipes were not wholly new, though, the way in which she presented them certainly was. She explains when the chief ingredients are most likely to be in season, how long the dish will take to prepare and even how much it is likely to cost. Beeton's recipes were well suited to her times. Two centuries earlier, an understanding of rural ways had been so widespread that one writer could advise cooks to heat water until it was a little hotter than milk comes from a cow. By the 1.850s Britain was industrialising. The growing urban middle class needed details, and Beeton provided them in full.

FROM SIMON:

Thanks for your answers guys.

Shakhzod,

I can't see any clear keywords that give us the answer. Please note that "IELTS Trainer" does not contain "official" exam papers, the tests in those books might not always be reliable - I personally only trust the official books of past exam papers.

(1) The active and passive parts of language ability.
the active: speaking, writing / the passive: listening, reading

(2) The three types of bilingual person.
compound bilingual, coordinate bilingual and subordinate bilingual

(3) The name of a language learning hypothesis or theory.
Critical period

(4) Some benefits for the brains of bilinguals.
- holistic view
- less emotional bias
- brain healthy

1. Active parts of language ability are speaking and writing.
Passive parts of language ability are listening and reading.

2. The three types of bilingual person are compound, coordinate and subordinate bilinguals.

3. The name of a language learning hypothesis or theory is the critical period hypothesis.

4. Brains of bilinguals are more healthy (bilingualism can help delay the onset of diseases, like Alzheimer's and dementia), complex and actively engaged (executive function, problem solving, switching between tasks and focusing while filtering out irrelevant information).

Hi Simon,
Thanks you so much for sharing more useful tips in listening IELTS for us.
Actually, I have got the problems about listening the lecture in IELTS. I have almost lose scores in this section. Would you mind sharing with me some advances? I absolutely need the solutions for that matter. Thanks you.

FROM SHAKHZOD

Thank you for your advice and attention.

Active: Speaking and writing,
Passive: Listening and reading

The types of bilingual:
Compound
Coordinate
Subordinate

the name of the hypothesis:
The critical period hypothesis

The benefit of bilingualism:
help your brain health, complex, actively engaged

All of the answers above are correct!

Hi Simon,

I have a question. Why listening section of academic ielts in some countries is held via headphone, while in others (England, London - once I have taken there) via speakers?

How should it actually be?

As for me, it must be held by means of speakers. Since everybody is gonna listen to professor at university not by means of headphone, but by ears that listen to whole sound in the auditorium.

1. Language ability is typically measured in two active parts -speaking and writing and in two passive parts --listening and reading

2. The three types bilinguals are : compound , coordinate , subordinate

Compound bilinguals develop two linguistic codes simultaneously with a single set of concept.
Coordinate bilinguals work with two sets of concepts.
Subordinate bilinguals learn a secondary language by filtering it through their primary language( which one do I belong ? Still confused :(


3. Critical period hypothesis

It is well known that the brain's left hemisphere is more dominant in analytical and logical processes while the right hemisphere is more active in emotional and social ones .Though, this is a matter of degree not an absolute split .The fact that language involves both types of functions while lateralization develops gradually with age has led to critical period hypothesis .According to this theory , children learn languages more easily because the plasticity of their developing brains lets them use both hemispheres in language acquisition while in most adults language is lateralized to one hemisphere ,usually the left .If this is true , learning a language in childhood give u a more holistic grasp of its social and emotional contexts .

4. Bilingualism dose make our brain more healthy ,complex and actively engaged .

For example , firstly ,it delay the onset of diseases like alzheimers and
dementia by as much as five years .
Secondly , bilingualism helps you strenthen executive functions of the brain makes u good at problem solving ,switching between tasks and focusing while filtering irrelevant informations.
