Task 2

To sum-up your notes on the video, you are going to WRITE-in-a-fun-way.

Welcome to Tagxedo, word cloud with styles!

Tagxedo turns words — famous speeches, news articles, slogans and themes, even your love letters — into a visually stunning word cloud, words individually sized appropriately to highlight the frequencies of occurrence within the body of text.


Once you are ready, click here to start. Choose Create and follow the instructions. Save your work as jpeg in your computer. Go to Google Drive once again, click Create then choose Drawing. Type Tagxedo Project – your name on the title bar. Insert the Tagxedo word cloud you just created. When you are done, click File and send it as an attachment to my email.

Have fun!

Task 3

1. Read IELTS Information for Candidates.

2. Record a video of yourself of about five minutes summarizing your learning from the article. You may take down notes while reading or simply highlight important information for reference. You should not read the text directly when recording and you must re-phrase or use your own words when explaining. You may use your mobile phone or camera to record your short video and attach it to a new email via Google Drive  – WeVideo.  Send me for viewing and assessment.


Once you are ready, click the video below and get ready for Task 3. (the video will say Task 2 but it’s really for Task 3 🙂


Don`t forget to smile!
