Firstly, I want to thank you for putting up this website. I will be taking my exam this May and I find your website very useful and easy to understand. I do have a question on the introduction of the model essay, I’m confused as when to use however in a sentence. I know it is a linking word used to contrast but from the paragraph above, is it applicable to use however? In my understanding, however is used to disagree with the first statement which is “Social networking sites, for instance Facebook, are thought by some to have had…” In this case disagreeing with it means that your opinion is that you don’t agree with the first sentence but at the end of the paragraph, you stated that you are agreeing with the statement. Shouldn’t we omit the word however instead?
Your website is super helpful and informative for those of us who aim for a high band score in the IELTS. Thank you for taking your time to publish all these sample essays! I have two questions though, and I was hoping you’d be able to answer them. Nothing too important, just something things I’ve been wondering while studying for the IELTS:
