Answer (Band Level 7.5)

Children are believed to be our world’s future and this is why they should be taught to become responsible members of society. Both parents and school are supposed to shape the children into excellent human beings. They are born with some traits and others are adopted during their growing stages.

Parents are the ones who imbibe good morals and etiquettes in their children at home during their initial stages which they maintain for the rest of their lives. It is the environment provided by them that mould the children into the human beings they grow up to be and their treatment of people around them. It is at home with the parents they discuss about the world and its vices, in order to distinguish between the good and the bad. The parents lay the foundation stone of their children upon which they grow into and become good Samaritans.

On the other hand, school is where they spend more of their time in the later stages. When in school, the teachers are their sole authority and are responsible for their growth and development. Children have to follow the rules and regulations set by the school in order to lead a disciplined life, inside and outside the school vicinity. It is in school that the children learn academically and socially which makes them well rounded individuals. They learn how to cope with situations and deal with people which is important for them to subsist as good beings in the real world.

In conclusion, it can be said that for children to become a responsible and conscientious human beings, the involvement of both the parents and the school in teaching them right from wrong and good behaviour within the society is necessary. Separately, they cannot be held responsible for the children’s overall growth and development into ethically good members of our society.

Request Compensation or Refund # IELTS Letter

Answer – (Level Band 6.5)

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am a regular customer at your restaurant because of the excellent quality and an array of delicious meals that you offer on your menu. This is regarding the meal I had at your restaurant last week. I took my friend for dinner whom I had raved to about your delectable cuisine.

Both my friend and I sat and went through the menu to decide the order. As we sat there, neither did anyone fill up our water glasses, nor did they come to take the order. I had to literally go up to the front desk to request the water as well as place the order. Even after having placed the order, our meal arrived an hour later and that too cold. It was quite embarrassing and disappointing for me as I had given excellent reviews about your food and service to my friend.

After finishing the unsatisfactory meal, I still paid for the food and left a tip for the service staff. I am unsure about the reason for such sloppy and distasteful service and it would be nothing except common courtesy to refund the bill. I request you to look into this matter so that I would once again be confident to visit your restaurant.
