IELTS Doctor: Positive or Negative Development Essay

Next Video: More Complex Advantages & Disadvantages Essays

What a minute! Didn't we learn in the last video that 'positives' and 'negatives' are good synonyms for 'advantages' and 'disadvantages'. Well, yes, we did. But actually they also indicate a totally different type of IELTS essay. And one that has become more and more popular over the last few years.

In this video, we will learn

  • how to identify a Positive or Negative Development essay
  • how they are different to Advantages and Disadvantages essays
  • how to make sure your ideas are relevant
  • how to organise a Positive or Negative Development essay

And, I should say that even though this IS a new type of essay, one positive is that it isn't a difficult type to understand. (I'm sorry about all these puns. I just can't help myself. In fact, is anybody still reading these overviews...... or is it just me laughing in the dark on my own? Do the practice exercises.......)
