  • It’s a balance! In our course, you learn exactly what numbers the examiner must see.

    • Even native speakers do not include overall trends in their essays, because they don’t know it has to be there!

 

 

You cannot put in your opinion.

  • No opinions, no predictions.
  • Only describe what you see.

You must use interesting vocabulary.
