Sample Answer

I am from a small town. I haven’t had enough opportunity to visit many places out of my home city. There is one particular metropolitan city where I always dream of visiting that is the capital city of India, New Delhi. Delhi has a lot to offer to everybody. It has a great history. Every stone in Delhi has a story to narrate.
Delhi is known as Lutyens’ Delhi also as the whole design of construction of this city is idealised by the British architect Edwin Lutyens. New Delhi has a lot of monuments reminiscent of the British rule. Delhi is divided into New Delhi and Old Delhi. The house of parliament, the Connaught place and the prime minister’s office are a few structures that can be seen in New Delhi. It has a number of monuments, historical buildings, educational institutes and gardens.
Old Delhi presents all the lively picture of Medieval India. It has many old buildings. The Red fort and Jama Masjid are also situated in Old Delhi. I am excited to visit all these places about which I have been studying and watching since long.
Delhi is a great hub for shopping also. Across the country, people come here for buying and selling things. I am a shopaholic, for me it’s going to be a great experience.

Children using tablets and smartphones Best IELTS Band 7 Coaching in Dehradun

Sample Answer

In the past few years, modern technology has become accessible to society at large. More and more parents are relying on computers and laptops to make their children learn new things. In this essay, I will discuss both merits and demerits of using technology for learning.

Let’s begin by looking at the advantages of using tablets and smartphones. The main positive is that it supports social interaction and enhances communication skills. In other words, children can easily connect with their family and friends. Moreover, due to their advanced features, compact devices like mobile phones have become more than just a calling device. They can be used for entertainment and learning as well. Children get the chance to learn through various educational applications. Furthermore, playing games on smartphones, increases their mental stimulation and concentration.

Turning to the other side of the argument, excessive use of electronic devices makes children devoid of physical activity. It not only hampers their personal growth but also physical development. Another issue is that, children prefer isolation and become addicted to these devices. As a result, it adversely affects their interpersonal as well as social skills.

Considering both the sides, we can conclude that balance is the key. Although, smartphones and tablets have multiple benefits, reading and other physical exercises are also necessary for children’s overall development. I believe, the educational benefits of using electronic devices outweigh any drawbacks.

Spam mail Best IELTS Band 7 Coaching in Dehradun

Sample Answer

These days, many companies and brands are using spam for advertising their products or services. Spam or commercial emails are sent to random customers. They often contain misleading subject lines and badly crafted messages. Even though it is a fast and cost-effective way of approaching customers, I consider it unethical.

Let us start by looking at the problems people face due to spam mails. One of the biggest disadvantages of such mails is that they are not targeted to the right people, and the recipient may delete your email or unsubscribe. Moreover, the ‘click through rate’ of such emails is likely to be very low. Hackers can use this method to spread viruses and malicious software hidden in e-mail attachments.

Another issue is that, companies sending spams do not comply with privacy and data protection rules. The willingness of recipient to receive the mail is completely ignored by the sender. Hence, receiving these mails becomes troublesome as it irritates and annoys them. In addition to this, most of the time, there is no useful information provided in these emails. Sometimes it becomes difficult for the users to filter important mails from the inbox full of spam.

Turning to the other side of the argument, sending mails in bulk to a large group of customers repeatedly is the major advantage of a spam. This is a very cost-effective and eco-friendly method of advertising as no advertising cost and printing are involved.

All things considered, spam cause problems for the e-mail users. Instead of opting for  advertising through spam emails, companies should go for other online marketing techniques. Personally, I believe the negatives of spam eventually outweigh any positives. In order to avoid it, people can have an updated antivirus program. Moreover, we should never share our email address and personal information with any unreliable source.

A-FAMOUS-MONUMENT-YOU-VISITED Best IELTS Band 7 Coaching in dehradun
Sample Answer

In my country there are many historical monuments. My country is known for its rich cultural heritage. I am from the capital city and there we have many old buildings, some are from Mughal era and some represents the British era. As I have great interest towards history that’s why I have visited many of them like Red Fort, Old Fort and Qutub Minar.

Recently my college organised a historical trip to Agra as this city is famous for the most famous monument of our country that is the Taj Mahal. It is situated on the banks of the river Yamuna and is surrounded by a beautiful garden. The mausoleum is made entirely out of white marble and decorated with many other precious stones.. It is one of the most beautiful historical buildings. It is also one of the seven wonders in the world. This is very famous among people as a symbol of love. It was built by the Mughal emperor, Shahjahan in the memory of his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who died during child birth. It took 20 years of time to construct this pristine beauty. But it has one more story behind it that Shahjahan chopped off the hands of the architect who designed the whole idea of this building. It is said that he never wanted that the world has another monument like Taj Mahal.

It is considered as one of the most romantic tourist spots in the world. Many tourists from all parts of the world come to India to see the beauty of this token of love.
