A GOOD LAW IN YOUR COUNTRY. Best IELTS Band7 Coaching in dehradun
SAMPLE ANSWER-

Domestic violence is a severe economic and social problem not only for the women but the society on a whole. Coming from a patriarchal society, a majority of women are physically, sexually and emotionally abused by their spouses or in-laws. Today, I would like to talk about a good law which was introduced and passed by the parliament in 2005.

According to this act, any person who has been, or is in a domestic relationship with an abuser can file a complaint against him/her. It’s not necessary for the victim to be in a marriage relationship in order to file a complaint, as being abused in a shared household also comes under Domestic Violence. I got to know about this law in school, while studying Civics. I also implemented it in my real life when a cook working at my house told me about the kind of abuses she was facing at her in-law’s place.

I think most of the people think that it is a vital law which is mandatory for our country. Women of our nation will start taking their stand gradually and get out of men’s control in this male-dominated society. As domestic violence takes place not only in financially weaker families but also in economically stable families, therefore, this law is good for society as a whole.

In my opinion, this law will have a positive impact on our society. Abuses like physical abuse, sexual abuse, verbal or emotional abuse and economic abuse fall under the category of this Act.
The procedure of relief for the women that are included in the Act is residence order, monetary relief, custody orders and compensation orders as well. The court also ensures to provide the victim with safe shelter, medical and legal aid.

IELTS Writing Task # Digital games or traditional games

IELTS Writing Task # Essay

Digital games or traditional games.

These days young children spend a lot of time using computers, tablet and smartphones. Some people think that introducing children to technology at a young age is beneficial. Others believe that they would benefit more from traditional games.

Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your knowledge and experience.

Sample Answer

Technology is a significant avenue for learning and education in today’s contemporary world. In the earlier days, parents were not certain about exposing their children to smartphones and computers as the technology was not advanced back then. However, with the universal popularity of tablets and smartphones, connecting to apps and games, the Internet has now become a common ground for most children. According to my presumption, till a tender age, children should not be exposed to digital games and they need to be encouraged to indulge in traditional and conventional games.

On the one hand, technical knowledge helps children to learn at a faster pace than their adults. It also provides them with a solid platform to gain technical experience and improve their problem solving skills through visual experience. Educational games on tablets and smartphones act as a delivery medium for learning content and helps in cognitive development. Computers and smartphones also operate as a creative outlet for improving a child’s concentration level. Many apps available online have innovative and fascinating techniques that will help learning to be fun both for the child as well as the parents. 

In different circumstances, our ancestors were wise enough to form traditional games and activities that are equally beneficial. Some believe that digital games lead to isolation, behavioral and health issues among young children. Getting involved in traditional games will tend to remind us of our roots. Playing outdoors with members of our peer group will also help kids to improve their socializing skills and physical health. Young children will get in the habit of co-operation and team building with the help of conventional games.

To conclude, traditional games improves the physical health of children while digital games help them with mental health. As long as parents supervise their children and usage does not get out of control, technology can prove to be leverage. While traditional games are losing popularity these days but they can regain their importance if promoted by parents and teachers.

IELTS Cue Card # A SEASON YOU ENJOY

A SEASON YOU ENJOY

  • -What season is it?
  • -What is the weather like?
  • -What kind of activities you do in this season?
  • Explain why do you like this season the most.

Sample Answer:

India is a diverse country having four distinct seasons, namely spring, summer, autumn and winter. While the southern and western India experiences moderate summers and winters, the northern regions witness the extremes. As I belong to Chandigarh, a city in the north India, most of the people including me love the winter season. This is because summers are long and sweltering while winters bring the much awaited respite from the blazing sun.
The winters begin by the end of October and last till the end of February. The weather is usually bright and sunny with few foggy days intermittently. I really enjoy basking in the sun with my friends and sipping a cup of hot coffee. During weekends, we plan to go window shopping in the seventeen sector market plaza followed by hot meals at one of our favorite joints. Also, we plan at least one trip to Simla, a nearby hill station in the month of December , when there are chances of a snowfall. It’s still my idea of a perfect holiday with friends as there is a bit of everything to do like trekking, shopping, sightseeing , sledging and clicking loads of pictures.
Winters also bring in a lot of healthy fruits and green vegetables. This is the perfect time to try out different recipes which are colorful and full of nutrients. We do get some grandma style goodies too like peanut and jaggery sweet bars, which I absolutely love eating every now and then. What’s more, winters offer us to dress ourselves in some stylish overcoats, cardigans, caps and boots. All this and more make winter season, the most awaited season for me.

FOLLOW UP QUESTIONS

Q1. What are the seasons that you have in your country but other countries do not?
Ans. That’s a difficult question actually and I need to have a sound knowledge of other countries to answer it. Still, with whatever idea I have, I can say that India is much more diverse as there are 4 distinct seasons here unlike many foreign nations. For instance, while the gulf countries witness extreme Summers , the nations in north America and Europe have long and extreme winters.

Q2. Is there a seasonal festival in your country?
Ans. Yes, we do have many festivals to celebrate seasons. Harvest festivals are also seasonal festivals , celebrating both bounty and the change of seasons. Baisakhi is a festival of spring harvest in April celebrated by both hindus and Sikhs.Then, Basant panchmi is celebrated to welcome spring in the month of February. People dress in yellow to mark flowering of mustard fields. Also, pongal is a harvest festival dedicated to the Sun God.It is celebrated in Janauary in the south of India.
