Technology and its reach in human life have significantly increased over the past few years. This has had a lot of implications, including a dramatic increase in the number of children playing computer games. This essay will examine various impacts of this change and discuss possibilities to avoid any negative effects.

Talking about the positive aspects, playing computer games has numerous benefits. These can range from helping children develop cognitive skills to increase their logical reasoning. Games have developed into a whole industry. These have allowed children to test their abstract and logical thinking skills. Many of these games require children to follow various commands and try to solve complex problems with the use of logic. Such games are surely advantageous for a child’s mental progress.

On the other hand, people are raising concerns over the prolific use of violence and sanguinary elements that these games contain. These may be highly addictive, in the sense that they reward the players for being more violent, thereby setting a wrong example. Apart from being addictive, they contribute to arresting a child’s social development and lead to the inculcation of aggressive feelings of anger and hate in their thoughts and habits.

However, there are many steps that can be taken to minimize negative impacts. Firstly, video games are rated for different ages and parents can choose them for the children in order to avoid unsuitable content. Secondly, parents can limit the duration of playing games for the children to keep addiction at bay. Finally, parents should take an active interest in the children’s activities and encourage them to play outdoor games.

To sum it up, video games have a lot of advantages along with an array of disadvantages. Parents should supervise their children and take precautions to avoid any negative effects these might have on children.

IELTS Speaking Sample Answer # Films

Films form an integral part of our lives. Most of the people across all over the world love watching films, although of different genres. There are several movies that create an impact on our lives as an individual, there are even some that do impact the society in large. Well, then there are even some movies, that are purely for fun. This time let us have a look at some of the questions that can be asked related to films in the IELTS speaking section, part I.

Do you like watching films?

I do love watching films, but I am not a film maniac. So, you  will not find me every Friday standing outside any of the theatres looking for movies. Or for that matter, watching old movies on television or internet 24/7. Whenever a movie of great story does come in, say for example, barfi or an inspiring film like Chak De, I do go and watch them.

Do you prefer foreign films or Indian films?

I love watching both, the only thing that matters is that the story should be good. I like watching films in which you get your answers for leading a beautiful life. This does not certainly means I love motivational movies. but then even a romcom can teach you so much. So, for me the story matters, every thing else is secondary,

How often do you visit cinema for watching films?

For most part, I like watching films at my home under by blanket. But, when there are lot of my friends going out, I do company them. However, this does not happen very often. So, one can say, if the movie is really nice and we all friends want to have some fun together, we go to cinema.

How do people in your country react to cinema?

Oh! People in my country love cinema and it certainly plays a very important role in our lives. There are so many people who take advance tickets to watch films of their favourite starts. Also, there are people who would just bare standing in lines for the one ticket to watch a film. You could hear claps and then fights taking place or the teary eyes. So, yes people in my country do love cinema and feel connected to it.

What genre of movies do you really prefer?

i love romantic movies the most. For me, the emotion love is the most important emotion of all and I love it when two people fall in love with each other. Some of my favourite romantic movies have been, What happens in vegas, Notebook, crazy stupid love. But, apart from romantic movies, I also like watching comedy movies and sometimes the motivational movies, the ones based on true life incidents.

Which genre of movies do you try to avoid?

I really don’t like horror movies. Not primarily, because I get terrified but because I think movies are there to make you feel relaxed. For me, horror movies, give so much of emotion and excitement that it seems as if some work has been done.

Which was the first movie that you watched?

The first time I watched an entire movie was Stuart Little Our school took the students who had subscribed to the newspaper to a movie hall. For us, most of the class had subscribed. So, the entire class of VI B, that was my section, went to watch the movie in a cinema hall. It was an amazing experience, not only because it was the first time I was watching a movie but because with people I enjoy my school days.

What is your opinion on the people who blindly follow their favourite superstars?

In my opinion, blindly following superstars is like living in a falsehood. Because, when a person blindly starts following the other person, they somehow forget that they are individuals and they have their own identity. Their circumstances and people around are different from their superstars, leading them to a black hole from where it gets tough getting out.

IELTS Speaking Sample Answer # Emotions

We all have so many emotions. Sometimes we are happy, angry, sad, numb. There are so many things that can trigger emotions in us. It could be your family, love life or career. A bad day or a lovely day, and we all express what we feel through our emotions. Let us today have a look at some of the questions related to emotions.

Do you think it is good to show your emotions when you are angry?

I think to express the reason for anger is good and should be done, because until then nothing can be done to solve the situation. However, harming oneself or others without trying to solve the main reason for anger, is not a very great thing to do. Because, it not only harms you but also others. However, there are other ways to show off anger. Some write, paint or scribble. I think until it is not harmful, anger should be expressed like every other expression.

Do ill mannered people tend to upset you?

Ill mannered people do sometimes tend to upset me because there is so much negativity that they bring along with them. Often times there is no logic behind what they are saying and no reasons for what they are doing. It just becomes in their nature to behave badly, which tends to get annoying. However, if someone behaves rudely rarely, I prefer finding out the reasons for it.


In your opinion, do women show their emotions more than men?

If we go by the stereotype, women tend to show emotions more than men. But, in my opinion, both the genders tend to show emotions equally. However, the emotions that they choose to show are different. For instance, a woman is less likely to show anger as compared to her male counterpart but more likely to show her tears. Also, when a woman is happy she tends to share it with others in a very calm way, however, a man is more likely to show off in a grandiose way.

Does  it upset you when you see children or animals being abused?

It surely does irritates me because these are the two section of society that I believe deserve the love most from us. Children being so innocent are rarely able to raise any voice, accepting every abuse as their destiny. Often times, there are few who raise the voice but their voices don’t get the ears they deserve, may be because they themselves are not able to express well. With animals, I think it is more of shame for us humans to treat them badly. We often forget that they, like we, are equally part of nature.

What is your opinion of the politicians who make promises but are unable to keep?

I believe, often the promises made during the elections are just a glimpse of what they  will do if they get selected more often. So, for example, if the government gets a tenure of say 10 years they might be able to fulfill all their promises. However, when it does not happen, we tend to assume the government did nothing. But, it is also true that more often governments make promises they themselves know are not feasible, keeping the country men in dark.

How do you feel or will feel if your partner flirts with some one else?

I am sure I won’t like it much, who will? But,then it also depends on the situation. Like, sometimes you know, that no matter what the other person is saying is not considerable because of the tone they choose and the mood of the entire situation. However, sometimes one just gets to know that the words being spoken are very literal. I think if ever I felt that I might be cheated I am more likely to leave the relation.

How does a slow computer or mobile phone makes you feel?

Oh!! it makes me feel like a loser, trust me. You know there are times when you want to do things and then when the gadgets starts showing up, it becomes so irritating and when the work if of some one else, you cannot even tell the issues, it is  up to you to face and do something about it. Even more, it spoils the entire mood of doing things.

Sample Answer

Imprisonment is one of the most common forms of punishment in several parts of the world. However, the effectiveness of this system has been in question for a long time! A high percentage of prisoners relapse into crime once they are released into the community. In my view, sentencing criminals to time in prison fails in most cases and in this essay I will explain why.

Firstly, offenders enjoy a comfortable life in prisons. Many of them have access to luxuries such as televisions, mobile phones, free internet and sport facilities etc. In other words, instead of being a place where lawbreakers should learn a life lesson, prisons become holiday camps. If the penal system really expects prisons to act as a deterrent, then I think it should be tougher.

Secondly, separation from society is not the solution of problem for most offenders. Take pickpockets and shoplifters as examples. Keeping these petty criminals in the same cells as rapists, murderers or violent criminals actually worsens the situation. This is because after serving their time in prisons, juvenile and minor offenders often turn into habitual and professional criminals.  Sadly, governments and tax payers have to bear the cost of keeping these recidivists (= a criminal who continues to commit crimes even after they have been punished) in jails. I think punishing them through fines, community service or other non-custodial means etc. is a better option.

To conclude, I do understand that criminals who pose a threat to society cannot be allowed to roam freely. For such people, imprisonment is necessary. But, for other offences prison is not the answer. In my view, the severity of the crime committed should be taken into consideration before deciding on the punishment.
