Greeting SJM would you please help me ?my question is about the task2 understand ( task achievement )some times I can brainstorm very quickly of the good ideas it is means I understanding the topic ?
if those ideas match the topic it would be leading me to product the good paraphrasing ?

B : City Bridge
D : Newtown

If the question is like that
some countries the average weight of people is increasing and their levels of health and fitness are decreasing.

What do you think are the causes of these problems and what measures could be taken to solve them?
Shall I write my opinion?


Sorry, I'm not sure I understand your question correctly. 'Task Achievement' is in Task 1, in Task 2 we call it 'Task Response'.

Also, 'paraphrasing' is when you take someone's idea and put it into your own words.

If you are talking about the essay, then some questions will always be easier than others, because you know more about some topics than others.


This type of question is asking you to identify some causes and solutions. The focus of the question is on highlighting them to the reader. You can certainly add an opinion in the essay (for example, 'I believe the causes are serious') however this is not completely necessary.

Theres no audio for this type of question..i want to practice with the use of this diagram..can anyone help me please.thank u
