IELTS WRITING

 

Writing task 2 (Iran)

Some people think that children should start school sooner while others believe they should not start it before the age of seven. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Некоторые люди полагают, что дети должны идти в школу до 7 лет, а другие думаю, что лучший возраст – именно 7 лет. Обсудите обе позиции и дайте свое мнение.

Мнение 1 – дети должны идти в школу до 7 лет. Почему?
(1) в этом случае дети закончат школу раньше, чем обычно, что позволит им раньше поступить в университет и впоследствии раньше начать работать.
(2) уровень грамотности современных детей, как правило, выше, чем раньше. Все это благодаря новым технологиям, которые помогают развитию детей с раннее возраста. Поэтому многие дети готовы приступить к учебе в школе раньше 7 лет.

Мнение 2 – дети должны идти в школу, начиная с 7 лет. Почему?
(1) 7 лет – оптимальный возраст для детей с психологической точки зрения, потому что практика показывает, что именно к этому возрасту дети становятся более восприимчивы к знаниям.
(2) академическая нагрузка в современных школах увеличилась, и дети до 7 лет могут быть не готовы к ней.

Мое мнение: я придерживаюсь традиционного подхода – большинству детей уместнее будет начинать ходить в школу с 7 лет. Однако система образования должна также учитывать, что количество детей, готовых начать школьное обучение раньше 7 лет, растет, и школы должны учитывать это при планировании набора детей.

 


Writing task 2 (Brazil)

Some people argue that competitive sports are good for bringing together different people and cultures. Others argue that these sports can cause problems and increase conflicts between nations. Discuss both points of view and give your own opinion.

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Есть мнение, что спорт, предполагающий соревновательность, – хорошее средство для объединения людей разных культур. Однако есть люди, полагающие, что спорт может вызвать проблемы и породить межэтнические конфликты. Обсудите обе стороны и дайте свое мнение. (Разве не любой спорт предполагает соревнование? Не совсем ясна логика авторов этой темы.)

Спорт – хорошее средство для объединения людей разных культур. Почему?
(1) Принадлежность к той или иной культуре не должно быть препятствием для занятий спортом, поэтому в настоящее время многие виды спорта объединяют представителей разных культур. Качества спортсмена, а не его этническая принадлежность, определяют его успех.
(2) в современном спорте известно много случаев, когда в спортивной команде работают представители разных культур, что сближает не только спортсменов, но и их фанатов. Пример: футбол.

Спорт может порождать межэтнические конфликты. Почему?
(1) Конфликты возникают из-за все еще живущих предрассудков относительно рас и этнической принадлежности, что может вызывать конфликты как внутри спортивных команд, так и среди фанатов.
(2) Возможно, представители определенных наций не получают адекватного вознаграждения за свой труд, что также может служить причиной конфликтных ситуаций.

Мое мнение: Я принимаю первую позицию, имея в виду, что спорт не должен быть инструментом дискриминации по этническому признаку. Спорт, как и любой другой вид деятельности, который объединяет представителей разных культур, должен одинаково уважительно относиться к спортсменам и принимать во внимание только их таланты и способности.

 


Writing task 2 (India / China)

In some countries it is illegal for employers to reject job applications on the basis of age criteria. Is it a positive or negative development? Give reasons for your answer and include examples from your own experience.

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
В некоторых странах считается противозаконным, если работодатель отказывает в трудоустройстве по возрастному признаку. Это хорошо или плохо? (Обратите внимание, что речь в теме о том, хорошо ли, что такая практика объявлена противозаконной или нет).

Отказывать в трудоустройстве по возрастному признаку приемлемо и это не должно считаться противозаконным:
(1) в зависимости от характера работы молодые сотрудники могут стать более ценной альтернативой для работодателя, нежели пожилые люди. Пример: новые технологии.
(2) некоторые виды работ требуют физической или психологической выносливости, и в данном случае молодым сотрудникам следует отдавать предпочтение. Пример: пожарный.

Отказывать в трудоустройстве по возрастному признаку неприемлемо и это должно считаться противозаконным:
(1) отказывать человеку в работе по возрастному цензу может считаться дискриминацией, потому что это человек может продемонстрировать лучшие результаты, нежели более молодые работники.
(2) при приеме на работу должны учитываться навыки и умения потенциального работника, а не его возраст.

Мое мнение: вопрос, поднятый в теме, является спорным, и считать отказ в работе пожилому человеку противозаконным не всегда является правильным. Я поддерживаю точку зрения тех, кто придерживается подхода предоставления равных возможностей будущим работникам, несмотря на возраст.

 


Writing task 2 (India)

Some people say that sport is very important for a nation’s development, while others believe that sport is no more than a leisure time activity. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
Некоторые люди считают, что спорт очень важен для развития нации, в то время как другие думают, что спорт – не более чем способ чем-то заняться на досуге. Обсудите обе стороны и дайте свое мнение.

Доводы сторонников того, что спорт важен для развития нации:
(1) спортивные достижения страны стимулируют определенную часть населения заниматься спортом, что способствует улучшению здоровья, что крайне важно для работоспособности людей.
(2) инвестирование в спорт косвенно помогает государству культивировать модели здорового образа жизни, чтобы повысить уровень жизни в стране.

Доводы тех, кто считает спорт одним из способов провести досуг и не важным фактором для развития страны:
(1) каких бы высот ни достигали спортсмены, в стране всегда есть и будут люди, которые не будут брать пример со спортсменов.
(2) кроме спорта есть много других способов повлиять на развитие страны – например, инвестирование в образование, борьба с коррупцией или развитие туризма.

Мое мнение: значение спорта для развития страны трудно переоценить, и поэтому усилия спортсменов и их победы крайне важны для воспитания молодого поколения, которое и будет отвечать за развитие нации в будущем.

 


Writing task 2 (Vietnam)

Some people think that private companies should pay for pollution clean-up, while others say it should be a government’s responsibility. Discuss and state your own opinion.

комментарий от www.myielts.kz
По мнению некоторых людей, частные компании должны платить за устранение загрязнения окружающей среды, в то время как другие считают, что государство должно брать на себя ответственность за это. Обсудите оба мнения и дайте свою точку зрения. Под частным бизнесом здесь понимаются компании-производители в экологически вредных отраслях.

Почему частный бизнес должен платить за устранение загрязнения:
(1) потому что частый бизнес порождает это загрязнение, и часть его прибыли должна идти на эти меры.
(2) бизнес должен инвестировать в разработку экологически чистых технологий и тем самым косвенно решать проблему загрязнения.

Почему государство должно платить за устранение загрязнения:
(1) т.к. расходы на охрану окружающей среды могут быть настолько высоки, что только государство может их себе позволить.
(2) государство как гарант благосостояния в стране должно осуществлять постоянный контроль уровня загрязнения и принимать своевременные меры.

Мое мнение: Должно иметь место сотрудничество между частным бизнесом и государством в охране экологии и устранении загрязнения, потому что в сообща решить проблему может быть проще.
