IELTS Academic Writing - Task 1

The diagram explains how old newspapers can be recycled and reused at home.

Firstly, you should tear some old newspapers and place the pieces into a bowl. Then, add 250 ml of water and leave the paper to soak for an hour. Next, using an electric mixer beat the mixture for about 45 seconds until it forms a pulp. When it is ready, pour the pulp into a shallow tray and add a further 100 ml of water. Mix it together by hand. Then use a piece of mesh to carefully place the pulp mixture inside.  Lift the pulp mixture out of the tray allowing the water to drain. Next, open up an old newspaper and put the pulp mixture inside. Then, using a rolling pin, press the paper down and force out any excess water. Finally, leave your new paper to dry in a warm place for at least 24 hours.

It takes a little over a day to complete the process of recycling paper at home using water and an old newspaper. All that is required in this simple procedure is a mixer, mesh and a rolling pin.

  1. I have seen teachers fail because of lack of rapport, feedback, and some other characteristics you mention!. Respect is key. Creativity, fun and humor are essential, too. What I always remember is what I once read: show your students you are there for them, share thoughts and feelings, show them you are also a human being, but REMEMBER they are your students: Not your friends". Shocking! Well, I have so much to say that I do not know what to add first!.For my luck I found one of those awesome teachers - . That was one of the reasons to start English course online. I guess this is inspiring me to write something as a follow up activity.
