Hello. Welcome to Study English, IELTS preparation. I'm Margot Politis.

0:19

Today we're going to talk about simple present tense, definitions and technical vocabulary,

0:27

all the things you need to know and use to write a report.

0:30

First, we'll listen to someone talking about copyright - the rights people have to their

0:36

own work.

0:37

It's structured like a simple information report.

0:41

Copyright's a passion of mine. Copyright is the exclusive bundle of rights, which is awarded

0:49

to the author or a creator of work, to entitle them to market it, to get economic reward

0:56

for their creative endeavour and to entitle them to say when, how and on what conditions

1:02

their work may be used.

1:04

Once I put my book on the internet anybody can access it at the push of a button, or

1:09

click of a mouse. Anybody can download it, copy it and transmit it without my knowledge,

1:15

without my consent a hundred times over to every country in the world without me knowing.

1:21

There is a misconception about work, which is submitted to the internet, and it's that

1:26

if you've given it to the internet, it's gone to a public domain, therefore anyone can use

1:31

it as they will, when they will, and that is a very seriously ill-founded misconception.

1:37

The fact that you submit work to the internet does not affect your legal rights in relation

1:41

to that work.

1:42

OK, so we heard Celine McInerney present an information report.

1:48

An information report presents information about a subject.

1:53

Its purpose is to classify and describe a subject using a range of facts.

1:58

The subject is usually a general topic or area, rather than a specific person or place.

2:05

For example, the general subject of today's information report is copyright.

2:10

But whatever the subject, there are a few common features that all information reports

2:15

have.

2:16

You might notice that the report is in the simple present tense.

2:19

Listen again.

2:21

Once I put my book on the internet anybody can access it at the push of a button, or

2:27

click of a mouse. Anybody can download it, copy it and transmit it without my knowledge,

2:32

without my consent a hundred times over to every country in the world without me knowing.

2:38

The simple present tense is used in information reports to describe qualities and features

2:44

of the subject.

2:45

This is one of the key features of an information report.

2:49

Let's look at some other key features.

2:53

Information reports often begin with an opening statement that introduces the subject. This

2:58

is the topic sentence.

3:00

Listen to the Celine's first sentence.

3:03

Copyright's a passion of mine.

3:05

She uses the simple present tense to introduce the subject of the report.

3:11

Copyright's a passion of mine. Copyright is a p
