Задания из IELTS в июле 2017

Начинаем собирать задания по Writing и Speaking с официальных экзаменов в июле 2017 года. Используйте их для подготовки! Темами делятся люди, сдававшие IELTS. Мы даем свои комментарии на особенно интересные и каверзные, на наш взгляд, темы.

Конечно, не стоит надеяться на то, что эти темы будут повторяться на будущих экзаменах (хотя кто знает), но помните, что чем больше тем вы проработаете, тем понятнее вам станет формат IELTS и тем подкованнее вы будете. Тематика по сути имеет свои пределы, и, возможно, темы их подобных сфер жизни могут оказаться на вашем экзамене!

Указанные темы взяты с отличного англоязычного сайта для подготовки к IELTS www.ielts-blog.com. Для вашего удобства я собрал темы в один пост.

IELTS WRITING

Writing task 2
Some people believe that radio is the best way to get news while others think that TV is better for this purpose. Discuss both views, give your opinion and relevant examples.
 

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Радио — лучший источник новостей, думаю одни, а для других — это телевидение. Тема просит порассуждать об обеих точках зрения и дать свое мнение.
 
Плюсы от получения новостей через радиостанции:
(1) новости на радио обычно подаются в коротком формате, что делает их удобными для восприятия и не занимает много времени.
(2) новости на радио можно слышать довольно часто — возможно, ежечасно, что делает доступ к новостям легким.
 
Преимущества получения новостей по телевидению:
(1) визуальный аспект, который возможен только на ТВ — эффект от новости сильнее, если она сопровождается «картинкой».
(2) новости на ТВ имеют более аналитический характер, что помогает понять суть ситуации лучше.

 
Итог:
Мое мнение — новости на ТВ имеют больше эффекта и раскрывают новость лучше из-за более глубокого анализа и визуального сопровождения. Тем более радио постепенно теряет популярность и доступно ограниченному кругу людей.

Writing task 2
There is a trend of increasing amount of noise in our life. Why could this be a problem? What can be done to reduce it? Give your own opinion support it by examples.

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Вопрос о том, что объем шума, который нас окружает, растет. Почему это проблема? Что можно сделать, чтобы снизить количество шума?

 
Почему шум — это проблема?
(1) шум способствует появлению стресса и неспособности расслабляться
(2) шум влияет на здоровье: порождает нервозность и тем самым оказывает негативное влияние на работу мозга, а значит — на весь организм
 
Что можно сделать, чтобы сократить объем шума?
(1) на уровне каждого человека: проводить больше времени на природе, в парках и сократить контакт с техникой.
(2) на уровне государства: эффективнее планировать развитие городов, чтобы смягчить воздействие от шума, вызываемого транспортом и промышленными объектами.

 
Итог:
Шум негативно влияет на психологическое состояние человека и, как результат, физическое. Нужны меры со стороны государства по снижению шума, а каждый конкретный человек может больше проводить времени в местах, удаленных от источников шума (парки).

Writing task 2
Many countries aim to improve their standard of living through economic development. Sometimes this may bring loss of social values as a result. Do the advantages of higher standard of living outweigh its disadvantages?

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Не завидую тем, кому придется писать эссе на эту тему. Ее суть в том, что многие страны пытаются улучшить уровень жизни через экономическое развитие, и это может привести к потере социальных ценностей. Переводим на очень простой язык: люди ставят деньги выше моральных ценностей. Нужно рассмотреть плюсы и минусы и определить, что важнее. Можно подумать над этой темой с точки зрения каждого человека и с точки зрения страны. Хочу обратить ваше внимание на то, что такое эссе лучше писать отстраненно — «одни люди полагают, что…», «однако есть и противоположное мнение, что …»

 
Плюсы экономического развития
(1) Экономическое развитие в масштабе одного человека — мир движим законами рыночной экономики, а это, в первую очередь, стремление сделать жизнь более изобильной и приятной. Это вполне естественное желание любого человека.
(2) Экономическое развитие в масштабе страны — улучшение благосостояния населения, развитие уровня образования/медицины, что ведет к росту продолжительности жизни. Это тоже очень хорошо.

 
Минусы экономического развития с точки зрения социальных ценностей
(1) Однако делая акцент на погоне за богатством, люди могут забывать о семейных ценностях или использовать других людей в своих корыстных целях, потому что они думают только о том, как увеличить богатство.
(2) На уровне страны: такое отношение к жизни может в долгосрочной перспективе разделить общество на богатых и бедных — тех, кто сумел достичь успеха, и тех, у кого этого сделать не получилось.

 
Итог:
По идее, тут должно идти мое мнение и ответ на вопрос: «Do the advantages of higher standard of living outweigh its disadvantages?».
Я считаю, что улучшение уровня жизни должно всегда иметь место, потому что плюсов все же больше. Потеря или сохранение моральных ценностей — это результат поведения каждого человека, потому что известно много примеров богатых людей, жертвующих большие суммы на благотворительность.

Writing task 2
Scientists believe that in the near future cars will be driven by computers. What are the reasons behind it? Would it be a positive or negative development, in your opinion?

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Компьютеры будут управлять автомобилями в будущем. В чем причины? Будет ли это хорошо или плохо? Два вопроса — два абзаца essay body.

 
Причины того, почему будущие автомобили будут управляться компьютерами
(1) Причина 1 — компьютерные технологии развиваются настолько быстро и проникают во все сферы нашей жизни, что и транспорт уже давно зависит от них (например, авиация). Поэтому компьютерное управление машинами не за горами.
(2) Причина 2 — машины-компьютеры могут стать хорошей альтернативой для управляемых человеком транспортных средств в сложных ситуациями (например, в труднодоступных местностях, при пожарах).

 
Это позитивная или негативная тенденция?
(1) Положительный эффект: такие машины помогут сделать поездки более комфортными — водителю не нужно быть в напряжении, находясь за рулем.
(2) Отрицательный эффект: вероятные ошибки, совершенные компьютером, могут иметь серьезные последствия для людей; профессия водителя может постепенно исчезнуть.

 
Итог:
Укажу вкратце две упомянутые причины и скажу, что все же положительный эффект от таких машин-компьютеров очевиден.

Writing task 2
Some people think advance technology such as the Internet is a powerful source of information. Others, however, think that books are also a good source of information and entertainment. Do you agree or disagree with this statement? Give your opinion and examples.

комментарий от www.myielts.kz

Интернет — мощный источник информации по мнению одних, а другие думают, что книги — тоже хороший источник информации и способ занять время. Согласны или нет? Очевидно, имеется в виду, согласны ли мы с утверждением о том, что интернет — более мощный ресурс, чем книги.

 
Доводы в пользу интернета как источника информации
(1) Интернет часто дает бесплатный и более быстрый доступ к информации, в то время как книги можно дольше искать и нужно покупать. Некоторые ресурсы нельзя найти в виде книг
(2) Интернет дает платформу для обмена мнениями и возможность делиться информацией.

 
Доводы в пользу книг как источника информации
(1) Книга, в отличие от интернета, сфокусирована на конкретной теме и дает более структурированную информацию, в то время как интернет может отвлекать от предмета поиска.
(2) Некоторые редкие книги могут предоставлять информацию, которая не доступна в цифровом виде, т.е. в интернете.

 
Итог:
Мое мнение — согласен с тем, что интернет дает намного больше возможностей, т.к. предоставляет больший объем информации и позволяет вступать в обсуждения, которые дают дополнительные знания.
