因此，通过阅读经济学人，同学们能够很好地掌握一些地道的搭配（collocations）以及如何有逻辑地组织信息和观点（logically organizing information and ideas）。通过以下一小段经济学人的节选，我讲演示如何很好地运用经济学人来写雅思的大作文。
Some people think that problems caused by international travel outweigh its benefits. To what extent do you agree or disagree.
（1） 读第一遍的时候，将可用的collocations 用紫色标出
low-cost carriers+ the rise of services like Airbnb
the share of Newbies who are making their first trips and often want to visit famous landmarks has soared
crowds converge on the same places
overcrowding brings costs, which are borne by local residents, such as clogged pavements, roads, and cycle lanes/late-night hooliganism in party towns/litter-strewn beaches and polluted water in island resorts.
（3） 最后大家可以尝试着把从这篇文章中学到的collocations 以及ideas 放在自己的雅思大作文论证中。
Low-cost carriers like Reynair have boosted international tourism. The rise of services like Airbnb, that allow locals to rent their homes to visitors, means that a place’s capability for overnight stays is no longer limited by the number of hotel rooms.
Partly as a result, the share of tourists who are making their first trips has soared. Newbies often want to visit famous landmarks. In Amsterdam almost all first-time visitors head for the Van Gogh museum and Anne Frank’s house, says Geerte Udo of its tourist authority. Meanwhile tourists from China and India often dislike tanning and therefore skip beach destinations, adding to crowds converging on the same places.
Such overcrowding brings costs, which are borne by local residents. City dwellers find that pavements, roads and cycle lanes are clogged. In party towns, like Amsterdam and Prague residents must put up with late-night hooliganism. Island resorts suffer from litter-strewn beaches and polluted water.
雅思作文评分标准之一是“词汇使用的幅度”，尤其是对“不常见词汇”（less common items）的使用。
