you can use it. 
IELTS Grammar: because 
Students often make mistakes when using the word "because". You can't use "because" to connect ideas 
in two separate sentences. Put both the main idea and the reason in the same sentence.

Which sentence is NOT correct? 
1. Some children behave badly at school because their parents are too lenient at home. 
2. Because parents are often too lenient at home, discipline in schools is becoming more difficult 
to enforce. 
3. Children's behaviour is getting worse nowadays. Because parents are not strict enough. 
CORRECT ANSWER: 
Sentence 3 is NOT correct. 1 and 2 are fine. 
... 
Chutarrat, 
You can use "Firstly,..." or "First,..." I normally use "Firstly" but it's find to use "First". 
All the best

CORRECT ANSWER CONTINUED... 
Sentence 3 should be written as one sentence with no stop or comma: 
"Children's behaviour is getting worse nowadays because parents are not strict enough".

IELTS Grammar: 'because of' 
Last week I looked at how to use the word 'because'. One of my students then asked me to explain the 
difference between 'because' and 'because of'. 
Compare these two sentences: 
I stayed at home because the weather was bad. 
I stayed at home because of the bad weather. 
The important difference is the use of the word 'was' in the first sentence. After 'because', you need a 
subject and a verb (e.g. the weather was). After 'because of', we don't use a verb, only a noun, nouns or 
noun phrase. 
IELTS Grammar: 'however' and 'whereas' 
Written by Ngoc Bach 
Page: https://www.facebook.com/tuhocIelts8.0 
Website: www.ngocbach.com Page 26 
You can't use 'however' and 'whereas' in the same way. Follow these general rules in order to avoid 
grammar mistakes: 
Use 'however' (followed by a comma) at the beginning of a sentence to contrast with the previous 
sentence: 
 Some people believe that schools are responsible for the behaviour of their students. However, 
others argue that discipline is the responsibility of parents. 
Use 'whereas' (after a comma) to contrast two ideas in the same sentence: 
 Some people believe that schools are responsible for the behaviour of their students, whereas 
others argue that discipline is the responsibility of parents. 
You can use 'on the other hand' or 'by contrast' in the same way as 'however'. You can use 'while' instead 
of 'whereas'. 
IELTS Grammar: while, whilst, whereas, as 
Joshua asked me the following question: 
"Can you explain while, whilst, whereas, as? Either can be used to connect two sentences, but I am not 
sure how to identify them and quite often I use them wrongly." 
Here's my simplified explanation: 
1. While and whilst are the same, but whilst is a bit more formal (according to one famous 
grammar book). 
2. Whereas is always used for contrast. While/whilst can be used for contrast, OR to mean "at the 
same time". 
3. As can mean "because" or "exactly at the moment when". 
Try to write an example sentence using each of these words. Feel free to share your sentences in the 
"comments" area below. 
IELTS Grammar: subject + verb 
Question: Which of the following is a correct sentence? 
1. Learning a foreign language. 
2. Firstly, learning a foreign language in order to improve your career prospects. 
3. For example, learning a foreign language by living in a country where that language is spoken, 
and communicating with native speakers on a daily basis. 
Answer: None of these are correct sentences. None of them has a main verb. 
To make a sentence, you need a subject (noun/noun phrase) and a verb: 
1. I am learning a foreign language. OR, Learning a foreign language isuseful. 
Written by Ngoc Bach

2. Firstly, many people learn a foreign language in order to improve their career prospects. 
3. For example, some people learn a foreign language by living in a country where that language is 
spoken and communicating with native speakers on a daily basis. 
Some students really need to work on writing correct "subject + verb" sentences. Missing the verb in a 
sentence is a serious mistake that will definitely affect your score. 
IELTS Grammar: correct the mistakes 
The following sentences contain mistakes. Try to correct them. 
1. We are friends ever since we first met. 
2. If people work in teams can help them to achieve more. 
3. If we consider unemployment is another important issue. 
4. It is difficult to live in a new country, it is also difficult to speak a new language. 
5. Many children behave badly, could be because their parents are not strict enough. 
CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON: 
1. We have been friends.... (present perfect - from the past until now) 
2. If people work in teams, THIS can help them to achieve more. 
3. Unemployment is another important issue. 
4. It is difficult to live in a new country and speak a new language. 
5. Many children behave badly, perhaps because their parents are not strict enough. 
Note: 
I have tried to give the easiest solution, but many of the students' answers above are also correct. 
... 
Hi Clement, 
I guess the answer would be true (it's a bit confusing without the full context). 
Look through my reading lessons for more practice. 
IELTS Grammar: find the mistakes 
Correct the mistakes in the sentences below. 
1. With developments in nuclear technology, the risk of accidents are being reduced. 
2. Scientists need to make more researches to improve the safety of nuclear power stations. 
3. Using of nuclear power not only does it produce cheap electricity, but also it does not have any 
pollution. 
I'll put my answers in the "comments" area tomorrow.

CORRECT ANSWER FROM SIMON: 
1. With developments in nuclear technology, the risk of accidents IS being reduced. 
('risk' is singular) 
2. Scientists need to DO more RESEARCH to improve the safety of nuclear power stations. 
('do research', not 'make researches' - never use the plural, 'research' is uncountable) 
3. There are several ways to write this. Gopi's suggestion is a good one: 
The use of nuclear power produces not only cheap electricity, but also less pollution. 
Thanks for your suggestions. 
Simon 
PS. Kim: 'developments' is just a normal plural. The meaning doesn't change. 
IELTS Grammar: more mistakes! 
Try to correct the mistakes in the following sentences: 
1. I am completely agree that job satisfaction for workers are important. 
2. On the other side, maybe it is difficult for all workers to be happy in their jobs. 
3. Although, we all need to work in order to pay our bills etc, but we also need to enjoy our jobs. 
Be careful with "although". Most English learners make mistakes with this word. 
CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON: 
1. I completely agree... IS important. 
(NEVER "I am agree") 
2. On the other HAND, it may be (2 words) difficult... OR: perhaps it is difficult... 
(Don't use "maybe" at the start of a sentence in formal/academic writing) 
3. Although (NO COMMA) we all need to work in order to pay our bills, (NO "BUT") we also need to 
enjoy our jobs. 
Also, don't use "etc." in your essays.

IELTS Grammar: using Google 
If you are unsure about the correct way to use a word, Google can often solve the problem. Here are 2 
examples: 
1. Yesterday I googled "drink driving" and "drunk driving". Both are correct, but which is more 
common? 
Written by Ngoc Bach 
Page: https://www.facebook.com/tuhocIelts8.0 
Website: www.ngocbach.com Page 29 
2. I wanted to explain the use of "having had", so I googled "having had grammar" and found this 
page from the BBC. 
Google and Wikipedia are two of the best tools for improving your vocabulary and grammar. Try them 
the next time you have a language problem. 
IELTS Grammar: find the mistakes 
Find the mistakes in the sentences below. 
1. The graph shows the number of people travelled to and from UK. 
2. In 1979, the number of people visited UK was 10 millions. 
3. Turkey was the least country in terms of the number of people visiting it. 
Feel free to share your answers in the "comments" area below. I'll post my answers tomorrow. 
CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON: 
1. WHO travelled (or TRAVELLING)... THE UK 
2. WHO visited THE UK... 10 MILLION 
(no "s" on hundred, thousand, million etc. after a number) 
3. You can't say "the least country" - change it to "least popular country".

LỜI KẾT 
Các bạn đã đọc đến dòng cuối của ebook này. Nhƣ tiêu chí ngay từ đầu, mình viết ebook này là dành cho 
những bạn tiếng Anh chƣa tốt, mới bắt đầu tìm hiểu về IELTS nên mình hƣớng dẫn rất cụ thể và chi tiết. 
Nếu các bạn tin tƣởng, học theo đúng hƣớng dẫn của mình -> chắc chắn các bạn sẽ đạt mục tiêu điểm 
IELTS của bản thân. 
Cuối cùng, lƣu ý rằng IELTS chỉ là một kỳ thi và dùng IELTS để đánh giá năng lực tiếng Anh của một 
ngƣời là tƣơng đối không chính xác. IELTS 8.0 cũng chƣa nói lên đƣợc gì cả. Sau khi thi IELTS xong, để 
phát triển khả năng tiếng Anh một cách tự nhiên, các bạn nên xem phim, đọc truyện tiếng Anh, gặp gỡ 
các bạn nƣớc ngoài, cố gắng tiếp xúc với tiếng Anh càng nhiều càng tốt. 
Hy vọng nếu các bạn đọc ebook này mà thấy có ích, thi IELTS đạt kết quả tốt thì có thể mes lại cho mình 
vào page: https://www.facebook.com/tuhocIelts8.0 để mình biết là những gì mình viết có ích với các bạn 
:D 
Cám ơn các bạn !
