Parallel Structures

Picture information: Looking at you here in the incredibly beautiful and talented Emilia Clarke. Popular for her role as Daenerys Targaryen in the wildly popular Game of Thrones. The picture is copyright Vidigy!

If there is proof that certain aspectsof English appeal to the aesthete, it is parallel structures. Parallel structures can make what you write and what you say memorable. If you closely observe most the quotable quotes, you will start noticing that most of them have parallel structure hidden in them. Take a look at this for instance:

“My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”
So, how are these relevant to IELTS, GRE, or PTE coaching?
For language tests, they will help you get a better score in speaking and writing. And in tests like GRE and GMAT, they will help you understand the nuanced differences. It is sad that more coaching sessions do not focus on this beautiful part of language!
