IELTS WRITING

Writing task 2 (Sri Lanka)

In many countries senior positions have higher salaries compared to those of young workers of the same company. Some people think this isn’t justified. Do you agree or disagree?

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Заработные платы у сотрудников на высоких должностях выше зарплат молодых сотрудников в той же компании. Некоторые люди полагают, что это несправедливо. Согласны или нет?
Рассмотрим позицию тех, кто согласен, и тех, кто не согласен
 
Более высокие зарплаты на высоких должностях оправданы
(1) у сотрудников на высоких должностях сложнее задачи и больше ответственности, поэтому размер оплаты труда оправданно выше
(2) опыт работы таких сотрудников зачастую шире, чем опыт молодых сотрудников
 
Более высокие зарплаты на высоких должностях не всегда оправданы
(1) молодым сотрудникам нужно платить соразмерно, чтобы удержать их в компании
(2) молодые сотрудники могут привнести в компанию передовые и современные знания и навыки, которых нет у старших сотрудников, и поэтому их зарплата должна не уступать зарплате тех, кто на высоких должностях
 
Мое мнение:
такая разница в оплате труда вполне оправдана, потому что молодой сотрудник должен показать себя в работе и пойти вверх по карьерной лестнице перед тем, как получить более высокий оклад.

Writing task 2 (Australia)

Some people think that air travel should grow without a limit, while others believe that governments should limit it. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Рост индустрии путешествий по воздуху не должен ограничиваться или все же государство должно ставить ограничения? Нужно обсудить эти две позиции и дать свое мнение.
 
Рост сектора air travel не нужно ограничивать
(1) рост этого сектора стимулирует приток туристов и вносит вклад в развитие экономики страны
(2) при условии удобного географического положения страны авиация может стать важным источником доходов с помощью транзитных пассажиров
 
Государство должно ставить ограничения на рост этого сектора
(1) беспокойство касательно негативного влияния авиации на экологию
(2) государство должно регулировать этот сектор, чтобы на рынке был только качественный продукт
 
Мое мнение:
оба мнения имеют право на существование в наше время, но я за то, что не нужно ограничивать рост сферы воздушных путешествий, потому что это положительно влияет на экономику.

Writing task 2 (Australia)

Nowadays many business meetings and training are happening online and not in real offices. Do you think advantages outweigh the disadvantages in this matter?

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Деловые встречи и тренинги в наше время проходят онлайн, а не вживую. Это хорошо или плохо?

 
Плюсы от встреч и тренингов онлайн:
(1) возможность собрать в одном месте людей из разных часовых поясов и делать совместную работу
(2) возможность размещать онлайн материалы встреч и учебные курсы для последующего их изучения
 
Минусы от встреч и тренингов онлайн:
(1) встречи — могут быть технические ограничения (недостаточная скорость интернета или отсутствие доступа к необходимому оборудованию или нехватка технических навыков)
(2) тренинги — нет живого контакта между тренером и участниками тренинга, чтобы выяснить более подробно нужды участников
 
Мое мнение:
плюсы все же перевешивают минусы, потому что такого рода мероприятия позволяют сэкономить время и деньги, и указанные выше минусы постепенно стираются по мере того, как все больше людей осознают удобство онлайн-коммуникаций.

 
 


Writing task 2 (India)

Some people think that giving homework to students is not a good idea. Others believe that homework is good and helps students achieve better grades. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Домашнее задание — это эффективно или нет? Нужно рассмотреть две точки зрения, а затем дать свое мнение.

 
Доводы в пользу домашнего задания:
(1) это возможность попрактиковать полученные навыки, на что не хватает времени на занятии
(2) домашнее задание может приучать к самообразованию
 
Доводы против домашнего задания:
(1) учебу и личное время следует разграничивать, и одна не должна смешиваться с другим
(2) домашнюю работу многие рассматривают как скучное занятие и поэтому ее мало кто делает
 
Мое мнение:
домашняя работа нужна, но ее объем и особенности должны регулироваться таким образом, чтобы не перегружать учащегося и давать ему право на личное время.

 
 


Writing task 2 (UK)

Some people say it is the government’s responsibility to fund school buses, while others think parents should be responsible for bringing their kids to school. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Два мнения о том, кто должен отвечать за то, как дети будут добираться в школу: на школьных (государственных) автобусах или на машинах родителей.

 
Государство должно финансировать систему школьных автобусов — почему?
(1) это облегчит задачу родителей, которые заняты на работе или не имеют личного автотранспорта.
(2) система автобусов важна для школ в отдаленных районах, где школа находится далеко от места жительства учащихся.
 
Родители должны сами привозить своих детей в школу — почему?
(1) родители контролируют безопасность своих детей на дороге.
(2) родители и дети не привязаны к четкому расписанию движения школьных автобусов, что может делать график более гибким.
 
Мое мнение:
Должен быть выбор — в некоторых вышеуказанных ситуациях без школьного автобуса не обойтись, но для некоторых родителей самостоятельная доставка своих детей в школу может быть единственно верным вариантом.

 
 


Writing task 2 (Malta)

Some people believe that children’s success in adulthood is related to the way they have been raised by their parents. Do you agree or disagree? Give your own opinion and examples.

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Успех детей во взрослой жизни определяется тем, как их воспитывают родители. Согласны или нет?

Наверное, стоит рассмотреть обе стороны.

 
Успешная жизнь ребенка в будущем зависит от воспитания — почему?
(1) ребенок имитирует поведение родителей, и есть мнение, что у успешных родителей часто вырастают успешные дети
(2) родители не только своими советами и воспитанием создают основу для успеха, но и организуют соответствующие условия для развития ребенка (обучение, развитие талантов, путешествия)
 
Успешная жизнь ребенка в будущем НЕ зависит от воспитания — почему?
(1) часты случаи, когда дети успешных родителей не повторяют примера родителей — избалованные дети
(2) успех зависит не только от семьи, но и от характера ребенка, а также от окружения вне семьи (школа, друзья)
 
Мое мнение:
На достижение успеха ребенком в будущем может как влиять, так и не влиять воспитание родителей. Часто склонность к успеху определяется совокупностью факторов — воспитания, достаток, условия для развития, а также окружение.

 
 


Writing task 2 (USA)

In some counties younger people are increasingly losing interest in teaching. Why is this happening? What can be done to improve the situation? Give reasons for your answer and include examples from your own experience.

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
В некоторых странах падает интерес молодежи к педагогической профессии. Почему это происходит? Что можно сделать, чтобы исправить ситуацию?

 
Почему молодежь не хочет работать педагогами?
(1) в эру технологий более востребованы профессии технического характера в силу возможности более высокого заработка
(2) роль учителя в учебном классе постепенно стирается, уступая место интернету и его безбрежным ресурсам для самообразования
 
Что можно сделать, чтобы исправить ситуацию?
(1) государство должно создать условия, которые смогли бы стимулировать молодежь выбирать такие профессии — достойная оплата труда, техническая оснащенность, инновационные методики преподавания
(2) развитие онлайн-образования, за которым стояли бы талантливые и амбициозные специалисты, которые совмещали бы в себе как педагогические, так и технические знания.
 
Мое мнение:
Резюме — профессия учителя непопулярна ввиду появления новых профессий и идеалов, с ними связанных. Решить проблему можно путем того, чтобы сделать систему образования более гибкой и основанной на технологиях, потому что именно ими можно привлечь внимание учащихся.
