IELTS WRITING

Writing task 2
Some people believe it is better for children to grow up in the city while others say it is better to grow up in the countryside. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Интересно, что эту тему я использую на своих занятиях по подготовке к IELTS — легче не придумаешь. Обратите внимание, что в данном эссе достаточно только рассмотреть плюсы взросления ребенка в городе и в сельской местности. Минусы рассматривать не нужно.
 
Очевидные плюсы взросления детей в сельской местности:
(1) более здоровая атмосфера для ребенка, более здоровое питание, здоровый образ жизни
(2) жизнь в сельской местности предполагает меньший объем стрессов
 
Плюсы от воспитания ребенка в городе:
(1) качество образования лучше
(2) больше вариантов карьерного роста в будущем.
 
Итог: идеальной могла бы быть ситуация, когда ребенок до школьного возраста рос бы в селе, а образование получал бы в городской среде.

Writing task 2
Many criminals after serving their time behind bars usually commit crimes again. Why do you think it is so? Give causes and your solution to it.

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Чтобы заполнить Essay body 1 и 2, нужно найти две причины, почему преступники, выйдя из тюрьмы, совершают преступления вновь.

Например, причина 1: проблема адаптации в обществе после судимости. Имея судимость, человеку непросто устроиться на работу, что может толкать его на преступный путь, чтобы обеспечить себе существование

Причина 2: проблема окружения в годы отбытия тюремного срока. Окруженный преступниками в течение нескольких лет, человек меняет свои жизненные ценности и выстраивает свое поведение на свободе по принципам, привитым ему годами в заточении.

Путь решения проблемы: нужны программы психологической и медицинской реабилитации бывших преступников, и государство должно помогать им интегрироваться в общество.

 
 

Writing task 2
Nowadays most developing countries receive financial aid from international organisations. However, many people believe that help in a form of advice and skills is more important and useful than money. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Тема о том, предоставлять ли развивающимся странам помощь в виде денег или в виде обучения их граждан. Нужно рассмотреть обе стороны и дать свое мнение о том, что эффективнее.
 
Помощь в виде денег:
(1) Финансирование необходимо на текущие нужды — выплата государственного долга, на социальные выплаты населению или на инфраструктурные проекты.
(2) Финансирование необходимо в периоды природных катастроф — землетрясение или наводнение, когда срочно нужна помощь.
 
Помощь в виде advice/skills:
(1) Этот способ очень эффективен, чтобы стимулировать страну развиваться, а не зависеть постоянно от иностранного финансирования, которое подразумевает долги и проценты по этим долгам.
(2) Следует организовать программы обучения специалистов в ключевых сферах — наука, госуправление, экономика и прочее, чтобы специалисты затем смогли принимать более эффективные решения, влияющие на будущее страны.
 
Итог: нужен баланс между этими двумя способами помощи. В то время как прямое финансирование крайне важно в определенных ситуациях, помощь в виде обучения — это вклад в будущее страны.

Writing task 2
Some people think that you need more money to be happy, while others prefer to have more free time than money. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

 
 

Writing task 2
Some people think that children today are not as fit and healthy as in the past. Do you agree or disagree with this statement? Give you opinion, reasons and solutions.

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Тема говорит о том, что дети физически не так развиты и здоровы, как в прошлом. Нужно найти причины и пути решения этой проблемы.
 
Причины:
(1) неправильное питание (легкий доступ к нездоровой пище и ненадлежащий контроль со стороны родителей)
(2) пассивный образ жизни, который вызван засильем технологий в жизни детей.
 
Пути решения:
(1) контроль со стороны родителей в плане питания — возможно, родители сами подают пример неправильного питания и сидячего образа жизни.
(2) родители должны вместе с детьми практиковать активный образ жизни

Writing task 2
Nowadays the number of cars on roads is increasing incrementally. In order to change this trend strict road tolls should be paid on busy roads. To what extent do you agree or disagree? Give your opinion.

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Речь о том, что нужно вводить плату за проезд автомобилей по дорогам в районах, где наблюдается интенсивное движение, чтобы сократить количество машин. Согласен / не согласен.
 
Я бы построил эссе следующим образом:
 
Рассмотрим политику введения road tolls:
(1) плата за проезд заставит водителей задуматься о ежемесячных расходах и, возможно, подтолкнет их к использованию общественного транспорта
(2) эта мера может сократить движение, но те, кому нужно ездить по этим дорогам каждый день (скажем, на работу), будут согласны платить.
 
Однако нужно использовать и другие меры, которые помогут решить эту проблему:
(1) более действенным выходом из положения является улучшение дорожной инфраструктуры (расширить дороги, сократить число светофоров)
(2) развитие удобного и доступного по цене общественного транспорта, которым будет пользоваться выгоднее, чем автомобилем
 
Итог:
Одного введения платы за проезд по дорогам будет недостаточно для решения проблемы интенсивного дорожного движения. Я соглашусь с утверждением, указанным в теме, но при условии что и другие меры использовать также следует (улучшение транспортной инфраструктуры и развитие общественного транспорта).

Writing task 2
Consumers nowadays are faced with increased advertising from competitive companies. To what extent do you think consumers are influenced by these advertisements? What measures can be taken to tackle this issue?

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Влияние большого количества рекламы разных производителей на потребителей. Заметьте, что в теме стоит два вопроса! Второй вопрос какой-то непонятный в данном контексте. Видимо, человек не совсем правильно передал суть вопроса.
 
Ответ на вопрос: To what extent do you think consumers are influenced by these advertisements?
(1) реклама конкурирующих производителей влияет на выбор товара, и потребитель может сравнивать условия покупки и выбирать подходящий вариант — это плюс.
(2) засилье рекламы может путать потребителей, и они могут перестать на нее обращать внимание, и это снижает эффективность рекламы — это минус.
 
Ответ на вопрос: What measures can be taken to tackle this issue?
(1) рекламу стоит воспринимать критически, потому что в ней может содержаться ложная информация
(2) потребитель может смотреть отзывы о товаре/услуге онлайн или от знакомых, если рекламе он не доверяет
 
Итог:
реклама выполняет положительную функцию, информируя потребителя, но ее засилье может вводить людей в тупик. Рекомендуется проверять качество товара/услуги, читая мнения других потребителей.
