Write about the following topic

Some experts believe that it is better for children to begin learning a foreign language at primary school rather then secondary school.

Do the advantages of this outweigh the disadvantages?

Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.

IELTS Writing Model Answer 01

This model has been prepared by an examiner as an example of a very good answer. However, please note that is one example out of many possible approaches.

Traditional, children have begun studying foreign languages at secondary school, but introducing them earlier is recommended by some educationalists. This policy has been adopted by some educational authorities or individual schools, with both positive and negative outcomes.

The obvious argument in its favour is that young children pick up languages much more easily than teenagers. Their brains are still programmed to acquire their mother tongue, which facilitates learning another language, and unlike adolescents, they are not inhibited by self-consciousness.

The greater flexibility of the primary timetable allows for more frequent, shorter sessions and for a play-centered approach, thus maintaining learners’ enthusiasm and progress. Their command of the language in later will benefit from this early exposure, while learning other languages subsequently be easier for them. They may also gain a better understanding of other cultures.

There are, however, some disadvantages. Primary school teachers are generalists, and may not have the necessary language skills themselves. If specialists have to be brought in to deliver these sessions, the flexibility referred to above is diminished. If primary language teaching is not standardized, secondary schools could be aced with a great variety of levels in different languages within their intake, resulting in classroom experience which undoes the earlier gains. There is no advantage if enthusiastic primary pupils become demotivated as soon as they change schools. However, these issues can be addressed strategically within the policy adopted.

Anything which encourages language learning benefits society culturally and economically, and early exposure to language learning contributes to this. Young children’s innate abilities should be harnessed to make these benefits more achievable.

Write about the following topic

Some people believe that unpaid community service should be a compulsory part of high school programmes (for example working for a charity, improving the neighborhood or teaching sports to younger children).

To what extent do you agree or disagree?

IELTS Writing Model Answer 02

This is an answer written by a candidate who achieved a Band 8 score. Here is the examiner’s comment:

The answer addresses all parts of the prompt sufficiently, focusing on the benefits for students rather than society. A number of relevant, extended and supported ideas are used to produce a well-developed response to the question. However, some ideas, for example the reference to the crime level, are not fully extended. The ideas are logically ordered and cohesion is consistently well managed. Paragraphing is used appropriately, and progression between paragraph is managed with some sophistication. A wide range of vocabulary is used to articulate meanings precisely, with skillful use of uncommon lexis, and very few inappropriacies. The range of grammatical structures used is also wide, with only occasional minor errors.

Answer

It has been suggested that high school students should be involved in unpaid community services as a compulsory part of high school programs. Most of the colleges are already providing opportunities to gain work experience, However these are not compulsory. In my opinion, sending students to work in community services is a good idea as it can provide them with many lots of valuable skills.

Life skills are very important and by doing voluntary work, students can learn how to communicate with others and work in a team but also how to manage their time and improve their organisational skills. Noways, unfortunately, teenagers do not have many after-school activities. After-school clubs are not no longer that popular and students mostly go home and sit in front of the TV, browse internet or play video games.

By giving them compulsory work activities with charitable or community organisations, they will be encouraged to do something more creative. Skills gained through compulsory work will not only be an asset on their CV but also increase their employ-ability. Students will also gain more respect towards work and money as they will realize that it is not that easy to earn them and hopefully will learn to spend them in a more practical way.

Healthy life balance and exercise are strongly promoted by the NHS, and therefore any kind of space time charity work will prevent from sitting and doing nothing. It could also possibly reduce the crime level in the high school age group. If students have activities to do, they will not be bored and come up with ideas which can be dangerous for them or their surroundings.

In conclusion, I think this is a very good idea, and I hope this programmed will be put into action for schools/colleges shortly.

IELTS Writing Model Answer 03

This model has been prepared by an examiner as an example of a very good answer. However, please note that is just one example out of many possible approaches.

Answer

A problem of modern societies is the declining level of health in the general population, with conflicting views on how to tackle this worrying trend. One possible solution is to provide more sports facilities to encourage a more active lifestyle.

Advocates of this believe that today’s sedentary lifestyle and stressful working conditions mean that physical activity is no longer part of either our work or our leisure time, If there were easy-to-reach local sports center, we would be more likely to make exercise a regular part of our lives, rather than just collapsing in front of a screen every evening. The variety of sports that could be offered would cater for all ages, levels of fitness and interests: those with painful memories of PE at school might be happier in the swimming pool than on the football pitch.

However, there may be better ways of tackling this problem. Interest in sport is not universal, and additional facilities might simply attract the already fit, not those who most need them. Physical activity could be encouraged relatively cheaply, for example by installing exercise equipment in parks, as my local council has done. This has the added benefit that parents and children often use them together just for fun, which develops a positive attitude to exercise at an early age.

As well as physical activity, high tax penalties could be imposed on high-fat food products, tobacco and alcohol, as excessive consumption of any these contributes to poor health. Even improving public transport would help: it takes longer to walk to the bus stop than to the car.

In my opinion, focusing on sports facilities is to narrow an approach and would not have the desired results. People should be encouraged not only to be more physically active but also to adopt a healthier lifestyle in general.

IELTS Writing Model Answer 04

This is an answer written by a candidate who achieved a Band 4 score. Here is the examiner’s comment:

This answer expresses a position on the topic, but the ideas are not always clear because of repetition and a lack of development (the answer is unfinished and under-length). The information is not organised coherently and it is difficult to follow a progression through the answer. Although some linking devices occur, substitution and referencing are not used, and connections between the ideas are unclear. The range of vocabulary is limited and repetitive, and inappropriate word choices, e.g. small country language; invest, make it difficult for the reader to follow the meaning. There are some attempts to produce complex sentences and some grammatical structures are produced accurately, but frequent errors and omissions in basic sentence formation and punctuation make the writing difficult to understand.

Answer

IELTS writing preparation: I agree about this opinion

Nowadays, several languages die out. I think this situation is right. In the world, already have to much languages minimum 100 languages include small country. But we know just some language, kind of English, French, Japanese and Chines.

At this moment, we live in the world, so we need first language in the world. Therefor several languages need to die out .

Also, small country language is almost difficult to learn and not useful. So we don’t need to learn this languages. Even if we learning this languages not using in the world. Just useful this country and we don’t small language education academy.

So I think small country language make spend money and time also we need find first language using all of country. This is very important for all country of developing.

After when decide first language our communication will be more easier with another country people. Beside, we don’t invest of another language education, and we can invest another part kind economic and developing by decrease education money.

According to this opinion.
