How many times do you think you use the phrase, ‘I think’ on a daily basis? For almost all of us, it is a lot! However, in IELTS, students need to show some variety and a little more adventure in their vocabulary.
Here are three examples variations of ‘I think’ you can start to use and practice, and IELTS preparation lessons at SI-UK will ensure you are ready for the IELTS exam.
Alternative IELTS phrases
1. ‘In my opinion…’
- Example: “In my opinion, sustainable energy is one of the crucial features in the discussion of environment preservation.”
2. ‘From my point of view…’
- Example: “From my point of view, this is one of the most important reports being debated this year in the European Parliament.”
3. ‘I would say that…’
- Example: “I would say that childhood is one of the most important periods of your life.”
Note: This phrase is more suitable for speaking rather than writing.
Advance IELTS tips
It is important to remember that you always need to explain the reasons when you present your opinion in academic essays. You cannot make the statement without rationalisation.
By justifying your perspectives, you can paraphrase your writing in more sophisticated manner.:
- Example: “Statistics indicate that wind power generation has prevented deforestation 60% more than thermal power generation. Considering this result, sustainable energy is seen as one of the most crucial features in the discussion of environment preservation.”
