Second example ” We should help children to become responsible citizen” or Should I write that as ” Adults should help children to become responsible citizen”
Many thanks for your consideration and help
I want to know in writing do we need to speak both sides of question?
for example the advantage and disadvantage ? or we can speak only one side.
It is not possible to learn sentences and put them into your essay. The examiner is trained to spot learned phrases and they will not be accepted. To get band score 6, you must have band score 6 English. This is ultimately a language test, you must have the level of English suitable to the score you want to achieve. My recommendation is to improve your level of English so you can write complex sentences without too many errors. Learn ideas to apply but not fixed sentences.

On the other hand, it is common knowledge that not all children possess the same intellectual abilities for learning grammar and vocabularies of a new language, exposed to them. The mother-tongue of Mauritian children is creole language. Various teachers have observed that Candidates, at primary level, tend to use creole vocabularies in their French essays. Moreover, certain countries may face an increase in their educational budget expenditure, as additional staffs dispensing foreign language education , will have to be recruited.
hi,i have been writing essay for a month but im quite disappointed because i cant keep track if my writing is in progress or not, no body is available to check my writing,please help me evaluate m writing guys..
I have had many IELTS teachers asking such questions to me in the past. The latter approach you mentioned is less direct. While this is a good approach for many academic essays and may draw the attention of the reader, it is unnecessary for IELTS. An IELTS introduction should serve two purposes, as you said, to introduce the essay question and present your position. Anything more is unnecessary. This is a short academic essay with a strict time limit. The main bulk of the points awarded in IELTS writing task 2 come from the body paragraphs so extending the introduction further is a waste of time and words.
You give as few or as many examples as you want. It is entirely your choice and doesn’t affect your score. Vocabulary should be appropriate. You should aim for accuracy rather than just trying to impress. Yes, you can use “I am convinced” but it won’t change your score unless all your essay contains the same level words.

It is about answering the issues in the essay question. There might be one or two. It’s about using relevant ideas and supporting them. It’s about how you present your ideas and your answer. See here for more information: . A similar page can be found in writing task 1.
Your website is super helpful and informative for those of us who aim for a high band score in the IELTS. Thank you for taking your time to publish all these sample essays! I have two questions though, and I was hoping you’d be able to answer them. Nothing too important, just something things I’ve been wondering while studying for the IELTS:
I don’t understand when i should present only my opinion and when to present both sides
For example in the above essay the questiom was ” to what extend do you agree?”
But the model answer he gave the point of view but also discussed both advantages and disadvantages.
We use for example to give an example but if we can use it is a good embodiment of it or it is a good manifestation of it? if it is appropriate to write this line instead of for instance?
I would like to know if for an opinion essay like one above do we have to write counter arguments.
And if it says to what extend do you agree or disagree do can we present both sides and take one stand or can we take 2 stands.
i want ask you something about writing,i discussed with my teacher that i can write overview in task 1 he said no no because you can’t write but i watched your video but you said overview is necessary …………..so i want you tell me about this i’m confuse because after 2 days i will be appear in exam………………….
some times I confuse in detect the topic in opinion essay, for example in this question:
(Due to the development and rapid expansion of supermarkets in some countries, many small, local business are unable to compete. Some people think that the closure of local business will bring about the death of local communities.). I have confused if the topic is (inability of local business to compete) and other information is supporting or it is (closure of local business will bring about the death of local communities) , so how can I identify the main topic in such question ?
Thanks a bundle
