What is Coherence in IELTS Writing Task 2 ? - understanding coherence "Visually"

There are many frequently discussed terms roam in the  mind when we start exploring IELTS . Some terms are little bit tricky to be understood clearly .Coherence and cohesion is one of the four elements assessed  in your IELTS writing task 2 (General and Academic) and widely spoken about, in various IELTS mentoring sites . Let me take "coherence" for this post today.

Coherence


If you want to know in a nut shell ,I would say coherence is "Central point of the paragraph " . You build a paragraph on one main idea and maintain it properly with carefully developed phrases ,words and examples .

For instance , let's see the following task on a "Coherence Map" which is  invented and illustrated by Knowledge Universe for the first time(2016)

IELTS Academic Writing Task 2 Vs. IELTS General Writing Task 2 - what are the differences ?

Most of the General IELTS test takers used ask this question in the classes . Main difference between the AC-Writing task and GT-Writing task is the mode of Task 1 of the both exams .



While you need to think about various types of charts,presented data and technical terms for them to describe the flow of information  given in the Academic Task 1, just  worry about  a handful of formal and informal letter types for  General Module Task 1.

in a nutshell ,Task 1 is  bit more different among the both modules .But task 2 is almost same for both modules .
