IELTS task 2 writing bandscale descriptors
You should do your best to address all parts of the task and write at least 250 words. If your essay is short, you will perhaps only get a maximum of four for the task. In addition, you will automatically incur a 1 or 2 point penalty depending on the length of your essay.
After the test you will review APA style and look at some examples of APA formatted in-text citation markers and APA formatted references taken from an academic paper. Please download the files and bring them to class.
