IELTS WRITING

 

Writing task 2 (Saudi Arabia)

Some people think cars are a better way of transportation around the city, while other prefer cycling. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Тема предлагает обсудить две позиции и выбрать свою.
 
Преимущества автомобиля как средства передвижения в городе:
(1) скорость передвижения и разветвленные автомобильные сети в городе позволяют легко перемещаться в городе
(2) комфортные условия (удобные сидения, климат-контроль в любое время года)
 
Преимущества велосипеда как средства передвижения в городе:
(1) значительно дешевле автомобиля: стоит дешевле, не требует бензина, обязательного техобслуживания
(2) способствует здоровому образу жизни
(3) в более выигрышном положении в загруженных автотранспортом городах, потому что велосипеду пробки не страшны
 
Мое мнение: велосипед, потому что дешевле и полезно для здоровья
(с таким же успехом можно выбрать и автомобиль, указав его преимущества)

 


Writing task 2 (Hong Kong)

Some believe that modern technology is increasing the gap between rich and poor people, while others disagree. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Непростая тема. Есть точка зрения, что современные технологии увеличивают разрыв между богатыми и бедными. Но есть и противоположная точка зрения людей, кто не верят в это. Нужно обсудить две эти точки зрения и дать свое мнение.

 
Почему технологии могут увеличить разрыв между богатыми и бедными:
(1) люди, которые имеют доступ к современным технологиям, имеют более высокие шансы улучшить свой уровень образования, здоровья и дополнительный заработок. не все бедные имеют этот доступ.
(2) есть мнение, что передовые технологии намного более доступны в развитых странах, чем в развивающихся, что косвенно ведет к разрыву между богатыми и бедными в мировом масштабе.
 
Почему технологии НЕ могут увеличить разрыв между богатыми и бедными:
(1) технологии становятся более доступными всем слоям населения через гибкую ценовую политику на рынке электроники и через систему кредитов.
(2) современные технологии создают широкие возможности по самообразованию и возможности заниматься бизнесом онлайн для любого мотивированного человека, будь он богат или беден.
 
Мое мнение: бурное развитие технологий не является причиной растущего разрыва между богатыми и бедными, потому что предоставляет много возможностей улучшить свой образовательный и финансовый статус.

Writing task 2 (Denmark)

Nowadays people are affected by social media and the Internet. Is it a good or a bad trend in your opinion? Explain it by giving your own examples.

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Социальные сети и интернет оказывают влияние на людей. Позитивное или негативное? Рассмотрим обе стороны.

 
Позитивное влияние социальных сетей и Интернета на людей:
(1) возможность беспрепятственного общения — как личного, так и профессионального.
(2) Интернет расширил возможности для образования и культурного обмена.
 
Негативное влияние социальных сетей и Интернета на людей:
(1) может теряться контроль времени, проводимого в Интернете, что может негативно влиять на продуктивность человека и здоровье.
(2) как мощный вид масс-медиа, Интернет может быть инструментом для манипулирования общественным мнением.
 
Ответ на вопрос «Is it a good or a bad trend?»: несомненно, плюсы перевешивают минусы, потому что Интернет и социальные сети становятся главными платформами для поддержания контакта с внешним миром и увеличения образовательного уровня.

 


Writing task 2 (Germany)

Childcare training courses should be mandatory for all parents. Do you agree or disagree with this statement? Give your own opinion and include relevant examples.

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Родители должны ходить для специальные курсы, где их научат воспитывать детей. Согласны или нет?
Эссе лучше построить на «за» и «против», а в конце дать свое мнение.
В этой теме нужно было аккуратным и не «скатиться» в описание того, как принято воспитывать детей в странах пост-советского пространства, иначе легко можно уйти от темы и занизить себе балл.
 
Доводы «за»:
(1) такие курсы, скорее всего, ведут профессиональные детские психологи и врачи, которые могут дать квалифицированную консультацию и компетентно ответить на вопросы молодых родителей.
(2) на таких курсах можно встретить других родителей, которые могут дать полезные советы и поделиться своим опытом.
 
Доводы «против»:
(1) в некоторых культурах в воспитании детей принимают активное участие бабушки или даже прабабушки, потому что сразу несколько поколений живут под одной крышей.
(2) это исключает необходимость для молодых родителей идти на такие курсы — семья и ее старшие члены помогут разобраться с воспитанием.
 
Мое мнение: такие курсы, безусловно, полезны молодым родителям, у которых нет рядом старших родственников, способных помочь разобраться в уходе за ребенком.

Writing task 2 (Iran)

The trend of increased consumer goods production is damaging the natural environment. Why is it still happening? What are the solutions for this situation?

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Растущее производство потребительских товаров наносит урон окружающей среде. Почему это все еще происходит? Каковы могут быть решения в этой ситуации?
 
Почему это все еще происходит?:
(1) причина 1 — растущее население требует увеличения объемов производства еды и продуктов потребления (например, одежда или бытовая техника).
(2) причина 2 — производство является бизнесом, который не только приносит прибыль владельцам, но и дает рабочие места населению, поэтому развитие производства неизбежно.
 
Каковы могут быть решения в этой ситуации?:
(1) использование новых экологически чистых технологий производства.
(2) переработка мусора, который можно использовать повторно, тем самым сократив вредные выбросы в окружающую среду.
 
Итого: главная причина этого явления — растущее население, которое требует постоянного наличия продуктов потребления; главные решения — экологически чистые технологии производства и recycling.
