IELTS Grammar: affect or effect

Almost every week I see mistakes in the use of "affect" and "effect". These are common and important words, especially in the IELTS writing test, so you need to get them right.

"Affect" is a verb. Dont write "affect on".

  • Smoking affects your health. (smoking affects on your health)
  • The Internet is affecting our way of life.
  • Children are affected by what they see on television.

"Effect" is a noun. Do write "have an effect on".

  • Smoking has a harmful effect on your health.
  • The Internet is having a significant effect on our way of life.
  • Television can have a negative effect on children.

If you use these words correctly, the examiner will be impressed.
