Reply Moderator November 9, 2014 Dear @chinmayatspeaking, The score: 3/4 Response is mostly coherent, sustained and conveys relevant ideas/information. But, it exhibits some inaccurate use of grammatical structures and is somewhat limited in the range of structures used. Reply yeeaa November 1, 2014 Your browser does not support the audio element. Reply Maria January 7, 2016 That is the best aswer that i have ever heard.HAHAHA Reply Arieta November 2, 2014 I prefer outdoor activities more than indoor activities. The first reason is because you are free to enjoy the nature in which way it comes to you which means you feel the nature closer, secondly is because you can get more inspired or get that much inspired by the nature or the places around that you can compose a song or write a poem. And thirdly because you’re not closed somewhere like you’d be on indoor activities. You can just take a deep breath, let it all out and just have fun. You’d also get the chance to meet more people that share the same interest on the activity as you do ,so the number of people being part of it wouldn’t be limited. Hence, I prefer more outdoor activities than indoor activities. Please review and rate this as ETS would! Your browser does not support the audio element. Reply Moderator November 3, 2014 Dear @Arieta, Score: 4/4 The response fulfills the demands of the task. Generally fluid expression. Clear progression of ideas. Some systematic grammatical errors are noticeable but do not obscure meaning. Instead of “The first reason is because / Secondly is because / Thirdly because”; You may just say “First of all / Secondly / Thirdly” (without because) Instead of “I prefer … more than …”; I would say “I like … more than …” or just “I prefer … (without more than)” or “I would prefer outdoor activities rather than indoor activities.” Reply Abhishek December 8, 2014 review.. Your browser does not support the audio element. Reply Moderator December 9, 2014 Score: 3/4 The response addresses the task appropriately, but falls short of being fully developed. Minor difficulties with pronunciation are noticeable and may require listener effort at times. Response exhibits some imprecise or inaccurate use of grammatical structures. This affects overall fluency, but it does not seriously interfere with the communication of the message. Reply amjad February 7, 2015 There are many activities I really enjoy when I do it whether it is indoor or outdoor. However, I prefer outdoor activities more than indoor activities for number of reasons. First, I love beautiful nature. I like to see wildlife animals especially cats and birds because the color of the birds bring me to exemplary world. I feel like you must live happily with your family and friends and do not care about your temporary problems. Second, to live in a healthy way, you should breath a clear oxygen from atmosphere. My town’s park is a very comfortable place and I feel calm in it. Last, but not at least, l love my family, friends, and my relatives and outdoor activities get us to be close to each other. For these reasons, I would prefer outdoor activities rather than indoor activities. amjad February 7, 2015 Please score me moderator Thanks for help Reply Moderator February 13, 2015 Dear @amjad, The Score: 3/4 The response addresses the task appropriately. Response is coherent, sustained and conveys relevant ideas / information. Relationships between ideas are clear. Well done! Response exhibits some imprecise and inaccurate use of grammatical structures. Instead of “There are many activities I really enjoy when I do it” I would say “There are many activities I really enjoy doing” “I prefer outdoor activities more than indoor activities” is not correct. You should say “I prefer outdoor activities to indoor activities” “for a number of reasons” (“a” is missing.) Instead of “you should breath a clear oxygen from atmosphere” I would say “you should breathe fresh air” Also be careful! “breath” is noun and “breathe” is verb. “Last, but not at least,” is not correct. You should say “Last, but not least,” (without “at”) Instead of “outdoor activities get us to be close to each other.” I would say “outdoor activities get us closer to each other.” You don’t need to say “to be”.
