Sample Answer

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am Parag Dutta. I had applied for the Master’s in Social Work (MSW) course in your college. Yesterday, I received a letter of acceptance for the same. I am writing to apologize for not being able to start this course immediately and to discuss its future availability.

I am very keen to pursue a Master’s program in Social Work. It would greatly boost my career growth. But, work commitments have interrupted my plan of studies. I have been working with a Non-governmental Organization for the past 3 years.  Recently, we have started an overseas project. I am a member of the team and I have to go to Sri Lanka for at least 6 months.

Since this course starts in July and I am supposed to leave for Sri Lanka in the first week of August, it is not feasible for me to start it right now. Anyway, please let me know if I could join it after February, 2018 as I will be back by then.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully
Parag Dutta

Sample Answer

Dear Gagan,

I believe you receive this letter in pink health and high spirit. I’m writing to invite you for a reunion party on next Sunday, 12th May, at Den’s Cafeteria in Defence Colony, Dehradun.
It’s been 6 years since we completed our graduation. Sadly, most of us haven’t met each-other for a long time. Everyone got busy with their careers and personal life after college, making it difficult to stay in touch with fellow students.
It’s quite understandable. Life is very demanding these days. Having a fine balance between work and personal life is almost impossible. I’ve been working as an assistant professor in Graphic Era University, Dehradun for the past 3 years. Final exams are just over and I thought of using this opportunity to organize a small reunion party for all our batchmates.
I have made all the arrangements which include a few games, followed by dance and dinner. We shall reach the venue by 6 pm and then enjoy together till late. I hope this time is convenient to you.
See you on the 12th of May!

Yours lovingly
Vishal

IELTS Cue Card # TV Series

IELTS Cue Card # TV Series

TV is a popular medium of entertainment in the world. This time we are looking at a cue card that touches upon the favorite television series of the speaker.

Describe a TV series you like.
You should say:

  • what the TV series is
  • who the actors are
  • plot of the series

and explain how you feel about it.

SAMPLE ANSWER

I have watched many television series. As a kid, I liked Dragon Ball z, Pokemon, Lizzie Mcguire and others. Growing up I fell in love with Suits, Friends, Sherlock Holmes, How I met your mother and others.

Today, I’m going to speak about one TV series that is still close to my heart. Its name is Sherlock Holmes. It is the story of a detective, Sherlock Holmes, who along with Dr Watson, his friend, solves crime mysteries.

Many renowned TV actors have acted in this series. But, I loved the pairing of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as Sherlock and Watson. It’s is perfect. Their co-ordination and dedication to the mission are commendable.

In every episode of Sherlock Holmes, one can find a new case that comes in front of Watson and Sherlock and then for the next one and half hours one gets glued to the screen in amazement. The complications of the plot, the suspense and the way the crime unfolds, all capture my interest.

Coming to how I feel about this series, it’s is a great program. I find it very entertaining and informative. It gives me a deep insight into the lives of detectives and the risks involved in this profession. At the same time, it informs me about the intricacies of crime cases and the efforts required to solve them.

IELTS Essay: Free university education?

IELTS Writing task 2 Essay: Free university education?

Write about the following topic.
Students should pay the full cost of their own university studies, rather than having free education provided by the state.
To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?
Write at least 250 words.
You should spend 40 minutes on this task.

Sample Answer

In the contemporary world, tertiary education has become paramount. However, a lot of deserving students are unable to enroll in colleges and universities because of financial limitations, which is really very sad. The only rescue for such candidates is the free higher education provided by the government. Some people argue that students must bear the cost of their university studies instead of utilizing the state funds. But, I disagree with this notion.

First and foremost, the tuition fee in universities is generally high. The cost of accommodation/hostel, commuting, examinations, books and stationery further add up to the expenses. Hence, if a person is not from an affluent financial background, it becomes very difficult for him/her to pursue higher education. Quite often, bright students lose the motivation to study in colleges or universities and instead start working after completion of secondary school. This is a serious flaw that deprives young adults of equality of opportunity and promotes discrimination in society.

Furthermore, tertiary education offers numerous benefits to individuals and society. College/University graduates have greater intellectual, problem-solving skills and civic mindedness as compared to their non-college counterparts. Higher economic and job security, improved standard of living, increased tax revenues and greater workforce productivity are some other tangible plus points of higher education. These factors are pivotal to the development of any nation. Free university education to all is therefore justifiable.

To sum up, education is a fundamental right to all. I believe that it should not be obligatory for scholars to pay their higher education expenses, especially if they are worthy of it. Free education to the needy is a great encouragement which should be promoted in the future. (277 Words)
