    hi,

    I noticed that in video writing task 1 video no 3, you used a present tense/present perfect. I am just wondering because its year 2017 now.
    in my exam i know i need to be careful with my tenses. I mean how would i know what tense to use.

    Hi Mariel. Good question. To know which tense to use think about the context and the question. ***In academic writing the rule is to use present tense as much as possible. This is because the present tense makes information currently relevant and interesting.
    In the speaking section, listen carefully for the tenses used in the questions; make sure to reflect the same tense in your answers.
