IELTS WRITING

Writing task 2
Some people say that the Internet is the most important invention. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement? Give your reasons and examples.

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Наверное, проще согласиться с высказываем о том, что Интернет – важнейшее изобретение, чем искать какое-то более важное изобретение.

Итак, чтобы заполнить чем-то Essay body 1 и 2, нужно найти ДВЕ причины, почему Интернет – важнейшее изобретение.
 
Причина 1 – Интернет сделал революцию в доступе к информации, а именно:
(1) помогает в самообразовании и общей росте интеллектуального уровня населения.
(2) дал свободу выбора того, что человек хочет изучать и познавать.
 
Причина 2 – Интернет объединил мир, а именно:
(1) средства коммуникации значительно упростились, и, таким образом, стираются границы между странами
(2) Интернет – один из компонентов глобализации, потому что является важным экономическим и политическим инструментом.

Writing task 2
Nowadays many big cities become overcrowded. Why is it happening, in your opinion? What measures could be taken to prevent it?

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Города переполнены людьми. Почему это происходит (откуда взялись там люди в таком количестве)? Какие меры можно принять, чтобы предотвратить дальнейшую миграцию в города?
 
Почему это происходит?
(1) внутренняя и внешняя миграция в города в поисках лучшей жизни – учебы и работы
(2) в городах более высокий уровень жизни, не только в экономическом, но и в культурном плане
 
Какие меры можно принять, чтобы предотвратить дальнейшую миграцию в города?
(1) предотвратить это полностью, на мой взгляд, не получится, но ограничить въезд можно с помощью регистрации постоянных жителей и затруднений для приезжих в получении прописки
(2) развивать другие регионы страны, чтобы равномерно распределять миграцию и не переполнять столицу или большие города

 
 


Writing task 2
Some people are convinced that mature age employees are beneficial to a company. Others think that younger employees contribute more and hence are more beneficial to a company. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Два разных мнения о пожилых и молодых сотрудниках и их пользе в компании. Нужно рассмотреть оба мнения и дать аргументы.
 
В чем польза пожилых сотрудников в компании?
(1) их репутация, знания и опыт важны для компании, и их можно передать более молодым сотрудникам
(2) пожилые сотрудники, как правило, более склонны к дисциплине и правильному порядку вещей, чтобы также немаловажно
 
В чем польза молодых сотрудников в компании?
(1) молодые приносят новые идеи и умеют находить ресурсы для их воплощения
(2) молодые более технически грамотны и в курсе технических новшеств, что помогает компании развиваться.
 
Мое мнение:
Компании нужны оба вида сотрудников, потому что знания и навыки пожилых, а также активная позиция молодых важны для работы компании.

 
 


Writing task 2
Nowadays congestion and traffic jams are a common and major problem in most cities. Some people believe it is a good idea to construct wider roads to resolve this issue. Do you agree or disagree with this statement? What can be the solution, in your opinion?
