The given maps illustrate the changes in the appearance of an island, before and after the construction of some visitor amenities.
Looking at the first map before the construction, it is noticeable that it is a big island with a beach in the west. The length of the island is approximately 250 meters. The island has no buildings and the eastern part has more palm trees as compared to the west.
In the second map, many new buildings such as accommodation facilities, a reception and a restaurant etc. have been built on the island. The lodging amenities are located in two areas. While one area is close to the beach, the other one is slightly far from the beach. Between them there is a restaurant in the north and a central reception block which is surrounded by a vehicle track. This track also goes down to the pier where tourists can go sailing in the south sea of the island. In addition to the vehicle tracks, footpaths have been constructed to go around the facilities and to the beach. Owing to all these developments the beach is now used for swimming. Interestingly, the eastern part of the island remains unchanged.
Overall, it is evident that it was a wild island which has been transformed into a well-developed tourist facility where tourists can fully exploit the scenic island and enjoy outdoor activities like swimming and sailing.

Answer A: Well, I love shopping because spending time on some of my favorite and essential things makes me feel happy. It is my favorite time pass which always elevates my mood.
Answer B: Actually, I don’t like to go shopping very frequently. As far as I think, it’s a waste of time and money. We should spend our earnings very carefully as we burn the midnight oil to be financially strong. So, we should spend on our needs not on accessories.

Answer A: Absolutely! I love to shop on the internet because online shopping offers many advantages over traditional shopping. First and foremost, some online stores have amazing collections for every age group.

Last but not the least, these stores have competitive prices for leading brands.
Answer B: Well, I am not very fond of online shopping. And the reason behind this is my poor experience. Most of the products which I bought through the internet were defective and duplicate. My credit card information was also misused. So, I always prefer traditional shopping over the internet.

Answer: Yes! I prefer to shop from Reliance stores as they have everything available with them and at reasonable prices. These stores provide a wide range of products from groceries to lifestyle. More importantly, they have exciting offers for their customers.

IELTS Essay # Juvenile Delinquency

Write an essay in about 250 words on “Youth Crime” and discuss the reasons and best possible solutions of the problem.


One of the disquieting problems faced by today’s world is – Youth Crime or juvenile delinquency. It is also known as “juvenile offending”. When a minor or individual younger than the statutory age of majority, participates in illegal behavior, then it falls under the category of youth crime. It is highly disturbing that the rate of such crimes is increasing alarmingly. Not only in India but around the globe it is spreading its tentacles to enforce criminal activities which lead to an unstable society. Robbery, rape, drug dealing, murders etc. are some of the horrible faces of youth crimes. In this essay, I will examine the reasons behind this worrying trend and propose some solutions.

Recent psychological studies have revealed that 6-16% of male teens and 2-9% female teens are suffering from conduct disorders which drag youths towards such heinous crimes. These disorders can vary from oppositional-defiant disorder (which may not be aggressive in nature) to antisocial personality disorder. Both of them can develop during childhood. But strangely, only 6% of the youth criminals are habitual offenders.

Another reason behind this increasing rate is the higher aspiration of today’s youth and the desire of a luxurious life. Of course, in case of sexual crimes it is the psychological disorder which is the major reason. Not to mention that nuclear families, education system and highly career oriented parents who do not have time to keep an eye on the moral development of their offspring are some other leading contributors.

The world has to be sensitive enough to deal with this challenge. More juvenile courts are to be established and a stringent law is the need of the hour. At educational institutions, psychological counseling facilities should be available and more attention should be paid on the moral development of children, especially teenagers. Rehabilitation process should be up to the mark. Moreover, youth is the most imperative section of our society so for the unblemished future this generation should be morally uplifted.

To sum up, a combination of factors have made our young minds offenders. However, I believe that if we join our hands together, we can make the world a safer place for everyone.
