Woman pay and promotion # IELTS WRITING TASK 2

WRITING TASK 2
You should spend about 40 minutes on this task.
Write about the following topic:

In spite of many advances women have made in education and employment, they continue to be at a disadvantage when it comes to pay and promotion. In your view, what should be done to promote equality of opportunity for men and women in the workplace?
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge and experience.
Write at least 250 words.

ANSWER:

In many regions of the world, women have achieved a social status which is on a par with that of men. Definitely, the credit for this progress goes to their sincere efforts in acquiring the highest educational qualifications and professional skills. Nevertheless, females continue to experience gender discrimination and lack of promotion in workplaces.
Some experts may argue that this issue is never likely to be solved as men’s feeling of being superior than women will always prevail in society. Therefore, this problem can only be minimized and never completely erased. But, in my view, we just have not worked and analyzed the problem enough to claim defeat.
A possible approach would be for the government to compel organizations to follow two rules. Firstly, equal salaries must be paid to all employees for equivalent work. Secondly, the percentage of promoted employees should be equal for both genders. At the same time, regular checkups should be conducted on all tax paying companies to ensure that the measures are strictly followed. This approach appears quite promising. However, the problem is that it would take too long to execute. It can also be seen as an overly excessive measure. Not to mention that big companies could easily fake the data.
A more feasible approach would be for the governments to take the lead and ensure that no discrimination takes place on any of its own grounds. In all government organizations, women must be treated properly and their work must be recognized accordingly. This policy would be more realistic as it would enable the government to grab the problem by is roots instead of trying to yank its stem out along with the roots. In addition, these steps would establish equal payment as an unspoken norm. They would also make the government an ideal role model for other private companies. In fact, countries such as Sweden and Iceland have proven the effectiveness of such measures.
To sum up, it is most likely true that the situation will improve with time but that should not stop us from putting a little more effort so as to solve it quickly or put it to rest once and for all.

IELTS Essay Sample Answer # Leisure Time

You should spend 40 minutes on this task.

Some people believe that people must do activities that develop mind during leisure time such as reading. However, others are of the opinion that it is important to give one’s mind rest during leisure time.

Discuss.

Write at least 250 words.


 SAMPLE ANSWER

With the advancement in technology, the world is moving at a faster pace than ever before. People are doing more things and juggling between different activities, leaving them with little leisure time. Some people believe that during this time, activities that involve mind work should be done, however others are of the opinion that one must relax and keep mind at peace during leisure time.

Doing less of any activity during leisure time makes sense to many for different reasons. Firstly, after working for so many hours or days, one needs some time to relax. For instance, a person who is may be working ten hours a day, during his/her rest time, prefers either to go to movie or massage, so as to boost energy for the next day. Secondly, everyone has their own choices and priorities. Like, a doctor who is already tired of working throughout the day might not prefer a five kilometers run.

However, doing mind work during leisure time is an effective way of relaxing for those who are involved mostly in physical work. For example, a footballer who is most of the time either practicing football or playing a game, might prefer reading a book during the leisure time.

Overall, in my opinion, what a person chooses to do depends entirely on the kind of work they do otherwise. Although reading or doing mind activity is right for some, others can very rightly prefer another activity.

Effects of Smoking # IELTS Speaking

The post below talks about the effects of smoking.

You should spend 40 minutes on this task.

Owing to the ill effects of smoking, some business have banned smoking in their office area. 

Discuss.

Write at least 250 words.


SAMPLE ANSWER

With increased awareness regarding the ill effects of smoking, most of the organisations have banned smoking in the campus area. Although some believe that it is a way of imposing restrictions on the employers, others believe it is a right way to ensure health for other employees.

Imposing restrictions on smoking in business area brings with it great benefits for the employees. Firstly, it ensures that people who don’t smoke are not affected by its ill effects. Even more, some people are either allergic or cannot stand the smell of the smoke, a no smoking office, provides them with a healthy environment to work in. In addition, the people who smoke are often under pressure and don’t realize the ill effects smoking. Banning it would surely reduce the consequences on them.

On the other hand, although banning smoking has several advantages, it could also be a point of frustration for many. For instance, a person who is habitual to smoking and needs to smoke every hour to carry on the work, might not like the idea as it would hamper his/her work efficiency.

Overall, smoking surely has its own reasons and banning it entirely might reduce the overall efficiency of the company . In my opinion, instead of stopping people from smoking, different zones must be made in a company. Like a place where everyone can smoke and relax and come back to work.

IELTS Essay Sample Answer # Computers Vs Teachers

You should spend 40 minutes on this task.

With the increase in technology, computers are increasingly being used for education. Some people believe in the tryst of computers vs teachers,  soon their will be no role for teachers in the classroom.

Discuss.


Computers have brought about incredible change in the education system and the way information is retrieved. The search for information has become easier and amusing, and connectivity has expedited the data availability. Although experts have made computers more intelligent and interactive, they have yet not become a substitute of human interaction in the process of learning. In my opinion, there is a need of change in the teacher’s role but complete disappearance might not be the most pragmatic thing to do.

Acquiring knowledge through computers is undoubtedly the more fun and easier. At the younger age, the mere fact that the information that you want is just a click away instigates lot of excitement. This, accompanied by the software interactivity contributes to a better grasp of new knowledge. Even more, at higher levels, with the availability of online courses, learning has become more broader.

However, although software have come a long way and with the concepts of smart classes existing, one cannot deny the importance of human interaction in the process of learning. The expertise of a teacher in how to explain and adapt complex concepts to different individuals can hardly be mimicked by a computer, no matter how sophisticated its software is.

Overall, technology has surely come a long way and made learning lot more easier. But, a teacher helps in understanding tougher concepts and creating a motivating environment. In my opinion, what is needed is that teachers understand the technology and  bridge the gap between technology and students.
