  • 9 band 9 verbs for IELTS writing task hi my name is Ben Worthington in this tutorial we

  • are going to look at 9 band 9 verbs you can use in your IELTS writing task today this

  • tutorial is divided into 3 parts first, we look at the verbs then I will explain why

  • they are band 9 this is quite interesting this useful to help you advance with your

  • IELTS writing thirdly, we look at examples of these verbs in IELTS sentences in IELTS

  • essays and this is really valuable because unless you get the context of the verbs then

  • you could be making a very serious mistake which is forcing the verb which I'll go

  • into in more detail in a minute of 9 band 9 verbs we have hinder, weaken, translate,

  • intensify, debate conceive, break, delegate, and lobby now some of these verbs have different

  • meanings for example I can say break as in I broke my arm yesterday and that's probably

  • around A2 or band 4 or 5 level now if I were to say that the media broke the story yesterday

  • then in that context with that usage then it's a C2 interestingly with these 9 verbs

  • the first four of them are extremely valuable for 3 types of IELTS task 2 questions the

  • 3 types of questions are discuss both views give your opinion and advantages and disadvantages

  • and the reason why these verbs are useful are because they lend themselves very naturally

  • to these types of situations so hinder is to limit the abilities so if we're discussing

  • the disadvantages we can say that new government regulations for road safety drastically hinder

  • the effectiveness of logistics transport companies for example can you see or new government

  • regulations drastically weakened the effectiveness of logistics companies so just random examples

  • there but they lend themselves very useful for these types of essays the other one, translate,

  • is very useful because it's quite versatile we can say government resistance for new regulations

  • translates into a lack of enthusiasm and ultimately a lack of protection for the environment so

  • translate is very versatile we can use it in lots of different essays now the other

  • ones have to be used with more caution except conceive conceive, we could definitely use

  • when we're saying discussing both views when it's give your opinion because conceive is

  • imagine and I'll give you examples about how we can use these verbs in IELTS sentences

  • in a second how do I know that these are band 9 and this is really interesting because there's

  • no other IELTS tutor that I know of who is doing this and it is quite easy I think as

  • you probably know IELTS is owned by 3 organizations it's owned by the IDP, British Council, and

  • Cambridge English language assessment those 3 organizations Cambridge English language

  • assessments are the experts who decide about the language criteria they deal with all the

  • language aspects of the test not all but pretty much most of it and these IELTS band scores

  • correspond to the common European framework for reference which is basically the European

  • Union's version of the band scores except they don't go from band 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,

  • 7, 8, 9 they go from A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2 now as you can see from the chart a C2 correlates

  • directly to a band 9 I mean not directly but there is a correlation there now if we click

  • on the verbs that I told you before and if we click using the Cambridge English language

  • dictionary remember this is the organization responsible for the criteria of the exams

  • or partly responsible for the criteria we find that the verbs that I give you the verbs

  • that I gave you correspond to certain levels here we go let's click on hinder I've got

  • it linked into the Cambridge dictionary we go there and what would you see look C2 C2

  • level and as I said before it's to limit the ability of somebody to do something you can

  • see that C2 look at that C2 to intensify to become greater more serious more extreme and

  • this is the case with all of them I think most of them are C2 now don't be confused

  • here it says B1 but the meaning that I was giving you okay is C2 to change something

  • into a new form okay so all of these are C2 or at the very very worst C1 okay so conceive

  • pretty certain like as a verb C2 debate now debate as a noun is B2 debate as a verb discuss

  • in a formal way C2 you see hinder okay hinder limit the ability of something abandoning

  • dated school buses would most likely hinder any efforts to improve road safety around

  • schools the main reason is that if each parent brings their own child the traffic around

  • schools would be horrendous so we can see here it's used correctly and it sounds very

  • natural and likewise disregarding a detailed list of activities for a free day would most

  • likely hinder any efforts to obtain the full potential of the said free day now in both

  • cases it sounds natural we could use these in the body paragraph we could easily use

  • them in the middle or the beginning because it would be a strong start to the body paragraph

  • but nevertheless, they're still useful and they're still valid it depends on your writing

  • style I think it would be good actually to use these at the beginning of the body paragraph

  • in a second in a minute I'll give you an example of a bad example I'll give you an example

  • of a bad sentence to use at the beginning of your body paragraph let's have a look at

  • the next one weaken cause something to be less strong hopefully you'd have spotted the

  • similarity between this sentence and this one okay so in this case they are interchangeable

  • but in this one it's not interchangeable at all and it's as I've noted here it's grammatically

  • perfect but it sounds forced okay so this one same as before abandoning dated school

  • buses would most likely weaken any efforts to improve road safety around schools the

  • main reason is that if each parent brings their own child the traffic around schools

  • would be horrendous so exactly the same as before here disregarding a detailed list of

  • activities for free day would most likely weaken any efforts to obtain the full potential

  • of the said free day weaken any efforts why does it sound unnatural because there is not

  • a strong force or movement or group of people or any effort for that matter of people like

  • actively promoting that do not make plans for free days okay so this is why it sounds

  • forced okay and the way you start to spot verbs or words that are forced into sentences

  • is by improving your language skills so it almost becomes natural that something sounds

  • off or that it sounds unnatural and this is a long process to get to that ability however

  • if you're writing for IELTS if you can find more lists and more examples then it's going

  • to speed up your learning curve or it's going to speed up your advancement or your

  • learning regarding academic writing it's going to speed it up considerably let's have a look

  • at translate abandoning dated school buses would most likely translate into congested

  • and dangerous roads around the school furthermore the air quality could only worsen translate

  • yeah it's quite straightforward this is very useful to have this verb the reason is it's

  • because it's quite versatile i.e. you could use it in a lot of different essays the other

  • ones but these ones you could probably use in the discuss both views and your opinion

  • and advantages and disadvantages quite easily whereas this one you could use in most essays

  • okay because it's basically saying this means this which is an essential part of your paragraph

  • because it's you developing your argument and your position now second example disregarding

  • a detailed list of activities for a free day would most likely translate into a sloppily

  • organized day replete of spontaneous distractions and unforeseen costs this is writing rather

  • aggressively okay because there's no doubt in the reader's mind after reading this

  • about my position on this issue and the issue basically was you know should you plan your

  • day or should you leave it to be spontaneous without planning and replete by the way is

  • a very good word it means full of spontaneous distractions okay a day full of spontaneous

  • distractions and unforeseen costs let's move on intensify this is my favorite so abandoning

  • dated school buses would most likely intensify any road safety or pollution issues the school

  • district might already be facing so here it just makes it to become stronger it intensifies

  • these issues okay now once again I can't use intensify because there's no real sort of

  • like issue around unplanning or not planning a day okay so once again this is why the list

  • is very useful if you want to start using these and also examples and as I said before

  • on the online course there are lots of lists and examples to help speed up the learning

  • process to help you to get you writing better you're going to improve your writing faster

  • let's go debate to discuss in a formal way those who debate in favor of abandoning school

  • transport may have forgotten important issues such as air quality, road safety, and dual

  • income families and you see so in this way I've used it more as argue in favor of okay

  • and once let's see this one again not really suitable because there's no real debate here

  • yes there is no -- you cannot imagine two groups of people arguing whereas in this case

  • you could easily imagine a group of parents arguing with another group of parents saying

  • bring back school buses no each to their own everyone's got their own way of transporting

  • of transport so this is why debate well this is why some verbs are more suitable or more

  • useful than other ones here well as you saw before we could definitely use hinder, translate

  • we can but we could definitely use some of the others for the free activities essays

  • now final one conceive here this is just let me share a useful spelling rule and that's

  • 'I before E except after C' you probably know that already anyway it is difficult to

  • conceive any benefits of abandoning school transport okay I won't go into it anymore

  • into more detail but here what I wanted to say is that two things this is a useful word

  • because we're talking about opinions we're talking about the advantages and disadvantages

  • or we're talking about discussing both views so here it's quite versatile we can conceive

  • of the views of that question we can conceive both views can you see how it's much more

  • versatile than some of the other ones so conceive is definitely useful and as we saw before

  • this is C2 level which equates to band 9 second point if we were starting the body paragraph

  • like this it is it would be terrible -- well not terrible but it's just not good form and

  • the reason why is because it creates reader strain I'm going a bit off-topic now but

  • it's useful it creates reader strain because I have to wait until the middle of the sentence

  • until I find out what this object pronoun refers to this is why I put those dots and

  • this is why this sentence we couldn't use it as the topic sentence to introduce the

  • body paragraph or to start the body paragraph we would use the 'it 'in the middle of

  • the or would use 'it' later on in the body paragraph when it's clear what the 'it'

  • refers to and it would be useful to use 'it' because it would improve our cohesion and

  • coherence score because we don't have to keep repeating the issue that we're talking about

  • we can just refer to it as 'it' so this is why if we do start a sentence with an object

  • pronoun it's better when it's crystal clear what that object pronoun is referring to next

  • one here it is difficult to conceive any benefits to planning a valuable free day perhaps a

  • more optimized schedule but the stress of okay so here it's quite versatile again so

  • this is why it's quite useful there we go 9 band 9 verbs for your IELTS writing task
