Write about the following topic:

Living in a country where you have to speak a foreign language can cause serious social problems, as well as practical problems. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?

Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own experience or knowledge.

Write at least 250 words.

SAMPLE ANSWER

I agree that there would be social problems and practical problems when many people live in a country where they have to use a foreign language, but the question is whether these problems are serious.

On the one hand, the problem would be insidious for ones who are not fluent in the language of the country they are living. Of course, for simple daily task such as go to grocery store, it could be solved simply with body language used. However, it is frustrated for them and others when they have to use the language, for more difficult communication situations at work, or understand dirty jokes or more serious conversation. As the result, they might struggle to socialise, then isolate themselves from local community. Perhaps, this could be done with international languages such as English, but it would be matter if they live in areas where these languages are less popular.

On the other hand, I do not see serious problem that ones with high ability to use the foreign language have to face. They can simply crack the local people’s jokes and fully understand such ‘jargons’ and slangs which seems to be only used by local people. They can successfully make comprehensive conversation at work, and comfortably socialise. They would be embarrassed with their misuse of their words or inaccurate pronunciation, but they have capability to cope with and clarify their messages.

In conclusion, I think that people with low level of using language will be struggled with the social and practical problems. However, with a higher level of language proficiency, these problems will be not complicated.

Summaries the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant. Write at least 150 words.

SAMPLE ANSWER

The chart compares the percentage of hose owning and renting of British and Welsh people from 1918 to 2011. Overall, homeownership was more popular, and people in these countries preferred to own than rent accommodation in recent years.

In 1918, nearly 80% of British and Welsh lived in rented houses, in comparison with just over 20% of people who owned houses. In the following years, the percentage of property owner decreased gradually, but it still by far higher than the homeownership rate which also went up. By 1971, the percentage of household living in their accommodation were similar to the percentage of those who rented house.

From 1971, most of British and Welsh people lived in owned house, and the rate of homeownership were by far higher than that of household in rented accommodation. From then onwards, the percentage of accommodation owners rapidly increased then slightly felt to just over 60% in 2011. Meanwhile, the percentage of household who rented accommodation went down and recovered relatively to nearly 40%.

Write about the following topic:

Some people believe that nowadays we have too many choices. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own experience or knowledge. Write at least 250 words.

SAMPLE ANSWER

In modern life, many people believe that over choice is becoming a phenomenon. I totally agree with this opinion, and this essay will attempt to find the reason for this.

Many people blame the increase of options to select on our modern life and modern technology that we use to find our options for each decision we make. Examples of having too many choices include university options or travel options if ones use search engines as advisors to find the best decision. Then, they have to make selection for one option from thousands of equivalent availabilities of choices. Not only that, the decision-making process tend to be overwhelming with the overloaded information about the outcomes and the risks of our selection.

Write about the following topic:

Some people say History is one the most important school subjects. Other people think that, in today’s world, subjects like Science and Technology are more important than History. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.

Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own experience or knowledge. Write at least 250 words.

SAMPLE ANSWER

I agree with the idea that history is one of the most important subjects at schools, and I agree with people who think scientific subjects such as Science and Technology are now more important.

I think children should be taught history even in today’s world. It can show children the origin of our modern society and how it came to be. Otherwise, children can have insight into historical events which are of similar nature so that they can possibly learn from them, both successes and failures. Thus, I think history is one of the best ways to teach our children critical thinking when they can examine the how and why of the events, and this means that they may ideally avoid the similar mistake in the future.

On the other hand, I believe that subjects associated with natural science are more important than history. It is a fact that math and science and the advance of technology are the basis of much of the fabric of our modern society, and ones who are behind the race of high-tech would be likely unable to offer the high quality of life for their people. It is and should be the highest priority of our society rather than the lessons of the past, and to win the run, we need to invest into the future of science and technology by the current education in this area.

It is a pervasive and problematic idea which maintains that scientific school subjects are more valuable than history. However, I am of the opinion that scientific subjects are more important as they seem to be the better investment for the future.

The plans show how the current layout of the sports centre of a university changes to the new layout. Overall, the main change for the layouts involves additions of new areas for new sports, and there will be an improved entrance.

Now, students can go swimming at the centre with a 25-meter pool, and they can use changing room or take a seat to watch the game. After redevelopment, 2 outdoor courts in the west and east of the old centre will be replaced respectively with a sport hall or a new pool where students can use for leisure time. They can also change in 2 locker rooms in each area. In the future, students can take dance classes at 2 new studios which are next to the sporting hall. Otherwise, they can do gym at a gymnasium which will be doubled in size.

At present, students can go into the centre through reception. On the future layout, they can also walk straight into sport hall and leisure pool without go through reception, or they can stop at a sporting shop or a cafe, right at 2 sides of the entrance.

Write about the following topic:

In spite of the advances made in agriculture, many people around the world still go hungry. Why is this the case? What can be done about this problem?

Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own experience or knowledge. Write at least 250 words.

SAMPLE ANSWER

Many technological breakthroughs have been already made in the field of agriculture, but there still are many people who are in need of urgent food. In this essay, I will explain some reasons and suggest possible solution for this.

One of the reason for famine is that crops are unlikely grown as harsh natural conditions like deserts, and it is likely that embedding innovative agricultural technologies, they can grow and feed themselves. However, the fact is they might be unable to access or purchase these technologies as they are developed and owned by developed countries. Of course, they can be transferred as international aids but more often as political advantages for other benefits. Many starving countries such as African countries let their people dying in hunger rather than receiving those aids. Therefore, the solution would be not out of developed countries’ hand.

There also other reasons for food emergency around the world. First, natural causes included natural disasters such as droughts and floods destroying crops and resulting in food shortages. I think the urgent action in this case is food aids. Second, the crop production in previously stable fertile areas has been severely stifled for years by the conflict so that people lost their livestock, flee their homes and then starved. There would be no better way than the conflict coming to an end by diplomacy perhaps.

In conclusion, many people believe that technology in agriculture would create a future without starvation. However, I think that technology seems to be a long-term solution rather than the more urgent cooperation of countries to appeal for aids and stop the conflict.
