IELTS-CUE-CARD-#-TALK-ABOUT-A-BEAUTIFUL-CITY,-IELTSBAND7-DEHRADUN

Sample Answer

There are many beautiful cities across the world. I am quite fascinated by a few European cities but the one I find most interesting is Amsterdam. It is the capital city of Netherlands and is a remarkable feat of planning and development. For a metropolitan city, it has quite laid back feel to it. The city has managed to gel in the modern world aptly while preserving its culture and heritage at the same time.
I am a well informed person when it comes to cities and my geography is pretty good too. Even though I have known about Amsterdam for a long time it’s only recently that my friend came back from there and he gave me a lot of information in detail about the city. At first, I wasn’t impressed and thought it to be like any other city but after seeing pictures on his phone, I realised that I was mistaken and promptly started searching for the city.
Well right now, I am a bit occupied with other work and studies. I’ll be free in the coming summer so that’s when I am planning to visit Amsterdam. It’ll be once in a life kind of experience and shortage of funds is something that should not bother me while, I am on the trip. I am working overtime right now and saving every last penny for the trip. As of now there are two of us planning to go and currently in conversation with a few more friends as the more the merrier. We might even go to France from there but let’s see how it goes.
It is a beautiful place and it has great infrastructure. The city is full of canals and coffee shops. What fascinates me the most is the preferred mode of transport of the locals. More than half the population uses bicycle as a mode of transport and I’ll be doing the same too. The national history museum is quite famous too and it houses some of the most lucrative pieces of artefacts mankind has ever witnessed. Since I am quite fond of clubbing and Amsterdam is the EDM (electronic dance music) capital of the world I’d try and visit as many as I can on my trip. (375 Words)

IELTS Letter complaint #Faulty Phone

IELTS Letter #Phone faulty phone complaint

You recently bought a high-end Smartphone from a renowned manufacturer. The phone you received is faulty. Write a letter of complaint to the company head describing what the problem is, the action you took and what you would like them to do about it.

IELTS LETTER COMPLAINT #FAULTY PHONE, IELTSBAND7 , DEHRADUN

Sample Answer

Dear Sir/Madam,
I am writing this letter in regards to a Smartphone that I bought from your retail outlet based in west Delhi.
The purchase was made on 13/09/2018 and I was given a bill and warranty card along with the phone. The very next day the screen went blurry and the phone switched off completely. As I spent a huge amount of money on this phone I did not feel like taking any risks and took it back to the store immediately. The technician was not present at that time and I was asked to drop the phone and follow up later.
The reference number for my complaint is B57921 and rather than being informed about the phone, I had to visit the store myself after 5 days to find what’s wrong with it. The services I was offered were quite poor and the technician present there was not able to give a clear explanation about the phone’s faults. They managed to temporarily fix and it broke again the following day. I am not very sure if I want the same phone again. For a company of your size, the services are quite poor and the quality of the handset is not up to the mark.
Can you please issue me a refund for the full amount as I am very disappointed with the services provided by your company.
Yours sincerely,
Pooja Panday

IELTS ESSAY # Health and fitness is decreasing

IELTS Essay # Health and fitness is decreasing

You should spend about 40 minutes on this task. Write at least 250 words. Write on the following topic:

In some countries the average weight of people is increasing and their level of health and fitness is decreasing. What do you think are the causes of these problems and what measures could be taken to solve them?

IELTS-ESSAY-#-HEALTH-AND-FITNESS-IS-DECREASING,-IELTSBAND7,-DEHRADUN

Sample Answer

All countries across the globe are witnessing a substantial increase in the weight of their citizens. Declining health and fitness levels are becoming a matter of concern. In this essay, I will discuss the reasons behind this problem and discuss a few measures that can be taken to address this issue.
In earlier days, people used to carry out their daily tasks themselves therefore, had better fitness levels. The current generation, on the other hand, follows an inactive and sedentary lifestyle. In my view, this change in the lifestyle is the major cause of the problem. In addition, people these days prefer to use different forms of transportation, rather than walking as it is more convenient and is less time consuming.
Furthermore, physical activities such as running, cycling etc have become less common and more of a hobby. Another major reason is the change in the eating habits. Today’s generation prefers to have unhealthy and fatty fast food over a proper nutritious meal. The rapid rise in the popularity of fast food joints such as Mc Donalds, KFC, Burger king etc is a telling example of how people ignore their health and well being just to satisfy their taste buds.
To recommend a few ways, the government should advertise the harmful effects of junk food and impose heavy taxes on the sale of fast food. Bicycle stands and separate cycle lanes should be constructed in different parts of every city across the globe to promote cycling. The governing bodies and local councils should encourage people to use bicycles as it is less harmful and it has health benefits too .Research has shown that such initiatives are very successful. Amsterdam is an ideal example of such a city that has integrated cycling as a major mode of transport for its inhabitants. Due to these measures less than 10 percent of its population is obese.
To sum up, the sedentary and inactive lifestyle of today’s youth and poor diet are the major reasons as to why, people are not as fit as they used to be. The need of the hour is to run advertisements about fitness and make people aware about the ill effects of obesity. (365 Words)

IELTS Essay # Reading entertainment books

IELTS Essay # Reading entertainment books

You should spend about 40 minutes on this task.
Write at least 250 words. Write on the following topic:

Some parents believe that children should not waste time by reading entertainment books, but instead they should spend time to read educational books only. What is your opinion about this?

IELTS ESSAY # READING ENTERTAINMENT BOOKS, IELTS BAND7, DEHRADUN

Sample Answer

Growing up we have several forms of entertainment and books are an integral part of them. The fact is that kids nowadays are occupied with academics and rarely get time to read other forms of books such as comics, story books etc. Few parents insist that rather than wasting time on children books kids should only read educational books. I, wholeheartedly disagree with this statement and in this essay, I will support my arguments with examples.
Firstly, kids already have a huge burden of school education and in their leisure time they should be allowed to read whatever is apt according to them. Secondly, confining them to a certain type of books will hamper their mental growth. Hence, this can even affect their thought process and it may become very one dimensional. This can have long term implications on their behaviour too.
Finally, childhood is one of the most important phases of one’s life and pressurizing tender minds into one direction is abhorrent to me. Entertainment books not only amuse the kids but teach lifelong lessons. For example, simple story books give moral values on the basic principles of life. Being thankful in life for what we have or treating everyone with respect are some of the lessons I can recall from my own storybooks when I was a kid. Not to mention, how reading books for fun can influence a child’s ability to be more imaginative.
To sum up, by making a child read a particular kind of book we will be hindering their progress. It can have both long and short term psychological effects. We need to discourage such practices for the betterment of younger generation. (278 Words)
