Hello Atul,At the outset, I would like to profoundly thank you for the invaluable guidance posted on this site, along with the videos. These were of immense help to me and increased my confidence to sit for the test today, 19th November.
I have a thing to be clarified with regards to the Writing Task 2 question in today’s paper. The topic was
“Some people say that staying in a hotel in a foreign country when on a holiday is not the best way to get to know about the country and its people”
Discuss your opinion
Give answers to your opinion and include relevant example from your experience….
My question is if I did not specifically used the keywords like ” As an example” or “To illustrate”, yet provided my opinion based on my views, do I stand to lose marks for Task completeness?
I hope you clarify this for me and the other readers.
