IELTS Essay Sample Answer # Violence

You should spend 40 minutes on this task.

World history suggests that violence and conflict were more evident under male leadership than under female leadership.

So, for peace to prevail, female leadership can be considered as a better option than male leadership.

Discuss both sides and give your opinion.

Write at least 250 words.


SAMPLE ANSWER

The wars and struggles are part of the world history for a very long period. However, with advancement in technology, it has all become much faster. Although, the ware has been evident, some people believe that the world is at more peace when a female is at power, rather than male. In my opinion, this can be because of the characterstics of women, however, it is about great leadership than gender of the leader.

The history has showed us some of the most ruthless rulers, and mostly they have been men. It was Hitler, a male, who contributed significantly for the world war 2. Even more, the first world war was mostly caused by the male ego, assassinations and conflicts of interests among men. Very few female leaders contributed taking decision to have war with other nations in their period of ruling a country.

However, on cannot forget, Queen Isabella of Spain, Queens Marry, a.k.a. Bloody Marry, Victoria, and Elizabeth of Britain, all of them have ruled over vast spectrum of power and  they often have done so ruthlessly, achieving goals with an iron hand.

But, there is other side of the coin as well. When the world saw Hitler, it also saw, Winston Churchill, Mahatma Gandhi and when it witnessed Queens Marry, we also noticed, Mother Teresa, Aung Suu Kyi.

Overall, in my opinion, it is the lust of power that causes wars, gender is just a biological existence.

IELTS Essay Sample Answer # Fear Of Crime

You should spend 40 minutes on this task.

Many people are too scared to leave their home because of a fear of crime.

Some people think that with better government and law, the problem can be solved, however, others are of the opinion, that nothing can be done.

Discuss both views and give your opinion.

Write at least 250 words.


SAMPLE ANSWER

We are living in an era, post the world war, and although, several peace organizations have been build, the fear of crime has developed among people. To add to this, several terrorist activities, also with the other crimes, have added to this fear. Although, some people believe that there is no way out of this, others are still hopeful. In my opinion, nothing can be done alone, but surely with the combined efforts of people and government, we can improve on it.

There are several reasons why people are skeptical of any improvement. Firstly, it is believed that fear is a state of mind which is perpetuated by the media. For example, we are often bombarded with negative news, the moment one opens the television or newspaper, you can find maximum of negative news. Secondly, an opinion has formed that the crime is because of the structural issues in the society which cannot be handled. Like, a person with no food or money is likely to steal.

On the other hand, there are even people of the opinion that there is still hope. If only the government can increase the police in local communities and encourage more ‘neighbourhood watch’ schemes, there are chances of improving the situation. Even more, media must also be encouraged to present more positive stories in the news about how crime is being tackled rather than the focus on the negative.

Overall, a wide opinion is formed that nothing can be done for the crime rates. However, there are some views that we can improve the situation. In my opinion, we can reduce fear by combined efforts of media, government and individuals.

IELTS Essay Sample Answer # Animal Rights

You should spend 40 minutes on this task.

A growing number of people feel that animal should not be exploited by people as animal rights are same rights as humans, while others argue that humans must employ animals to satisfy their various needs, including uses for food and research.

Discuss both views and give your opinion.

Write at least 250 words.


SAMPLE ANSWER

Animals are a part of nature, as humans are. However, in recent times the exploitation of animals has increased, causing animals to extinct. Some people believe that humans have the rights to exploit animals for their own benefit, while others disagree.

There are several reasons for people believing that animals can be used for the benefit of mankind. Firstly, there is a common belief that humans are the highest of the species in hierarchy. This means that if by experimenting on animals we can fight and find cures for diseases, then this takes priority over animal suffering. Secondly, animals are assumed to feel no pain or suffering as humans do, and therefore to kill animals is morally acceptable.

However, some people are of the opinion, that animals are very much the part of nature as we humans are. To prove this fact, several experiments have been done on animals which clearly prove that they feel the same amount of suffering and loss as humans do. Even more, a considerable amount of research on animals are done for cosmetics, rather than diseases, so it must be avoided. Also, it has been proved that humans can get all the vitamins and minerals from green vegetables, which makes eating or exploiting animals avoidable.

Overall,  although some people argue killing animals for research and food is ethical, in my opinion, exploiting animals will extinct them and cause imbalance in nature.

IELTS Essay Sample Answer # Advertisment

You should spend 40 minutes on this task.

Advertising has become an inevitable part of our lives. Some people believe that it is a positive aspect of our lives while others are of opposite belief.

Discuss both views and give your opinion.

Write at least 250 words.


SAMPLE ANSWER

Advertisements have surely become an important part of our lives. The way consumer buys a product, depends mostly on the advertising model of the company. Although, some people are of the opinion that we have become more aware and are able to take better decisions because of advertisements, others are of the opinion, a clutter has been generated because of it.

Looking at the negative impact, advertisements surely have had many. Firstly, it makes consumers buy things that may be they don’t need. For instance, a woman who sees an advertisement of a new product is more likely to buy it, even if not required. This often causes financial tensions in some cases. Secondly, often times people make fake advertisements. Like, an ad in newspaper saying eat this medicine to become slim in ten days. People tend to buy them and face the consequences.

However, ads are also helpful for the consumer. For example, an ad that tells about the effects of smoking and urges people to stop smoking, is more likely to have a broad effect. On seeing visuals, people are more likely to get affected. Secondly, it allows business people to start a business or a product. Such as, a company that opens a new line of product, can easily make people aware of it using advertisements.

Overall, advertisements, like everything, have both sides i.e. negative as well as positive. In my opinion, we need to be more smart to look through if the advertisement is real or fake.
