leisure activities by males and females in the USA

Sample Answer:

The bar graph compares the amount of time men and women expended every day in different leisure and sports activities in America in 2014.
One striking feature of the chart is that watching TV was the favorite free time activity for both the genders. On average, males spent 3 hours daily in front of their TV sets while women spent 2.6 hours. Socializing and interacting with family and friends was the next most preferred form of recreation. Both men and women spent 0.7 hours per day on this activity.
Leisure activities, sports, exercise and using electronic devices like computers were more popular among males. On the other hand, the opposite was true for reading as females expended 0.4 hours daily on this activity whereas men spent merely 0.3 hours. Interestingly, thinking or relaxing were equally popular among both sexes. This form of entertainment accounted for 0.3 hours daily for both men and women.
Overall, there were minor differences in the amounts of times males and females spent in different leisure and sport activities but watching TV was the activity which occupied the most time. (184 Words.)

IELTS Speaking Part 3: questions related to parties/celebrations

IELTS Speaking Part 3: questions related to parties/celebrations

Question. 1: What are the main reasons why people organise family parties in your country?

Answer: Family parties are very popular in my country. Most People organize special parties on birthdays and marriage anniversaries. Some young adults give parties after getting good grades in their exams or after being promoted to a high level position.

Question 2: In some places people spend a lot of money on parties that celebrate special family events. Is this ever true in your country? Do think this is a good trend or a bad trend?

Answer: Yes, wealthy people in my country throw lavish parties to celebrate special family functions. The pictures of their parties are often shown in newspapers. Even though it’s their own money, I feel that it’s a disturbing trend. It promotes discrimination in society and widens the gap between the rich and the poor.

Question 3: Are there many differences between family parties and parties given by friends? Why do you think this is?

Answer: Yes, there are. Family parties tend to be more formal as compared to parties organized by friends. Social decorum and elegance both are maintained in family functions. On the other hand, people feel freer in the parties of their friends. They normally don’t mind too much drinking or dancing, but in family functions any kind of misbehaviour can create a lot of problems.

National celebrations

Question 4: What kinds of national celebrations do you have in your country?

Answer: My country has two main national celebrations: the Independence Day and the Republic Day. The Independence Day is celebrated on 15th August and the Republic Day is celebrated on 26th January.

Question 5: Why do some people think that national celebrations are a waste of government money? Would you agree or disagree with this view? Why?

Answer: Some governments spend huge sums of money on national celebrations. If a country is facing problems like unemployment, illiteracy, poverty or poor infrastructure, then people will certainly complain about the money spent on national functions. In my view, the government should focus on the development of the nation rather than showcasing their military might in national celebrations.

IELTS GT Task 1: Letter to the campsite manager

You should spend 20 minutes on this task.
You want to go camping for a week with a group of friends.

• ask them to send you some information about the campsite
• find out about the cost
• give information about your likely arrival time

Write at least 150 words.
You do NOT need to write any addresses.
Begin your letter as follows:
Dear Sir or Madam,

Sample Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,
I have recently found out about your ‘Summer Peak’ Adventure camp through a leaflet in the Local Newspaper.

My friends and I are curious to know more about the facilities provided along with a little elaboration on what the included specials such as ‘River Rafting’, ‘Mountain trekking’, ‘Wood exploration’ and ‘Natural Craft’ include. We also have some other basic inquiries on the campsite, for instance: how large the campsite is, if the meals provided are inclusive to the package and how far away this campsite is from the nearest airport.

Another question is regarding the cost of our stay. The deals mentioned were only for smaller groups, but we are be a group of 7 people staying for a week and we are guessing we would require two ‘family tents’. Since we are students, could you also include the student discount offer mentioned? We will come in our summer holidays, preferably during the first week of June.

My friends and I look forward to hearing from you as well as coming to stay at your summer camp.
Yours sincerely,
Amit N.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Sample Answer

Dear Sir,
I am writing to bring to your notice the problems we are facing in our newly rented apartment. I am Anna White. My family moved to your flat number 131, Pacific Avenue, last month.

Overall, we are pleased with the facilities provided. But, for the last few days, the water supply has become very irregular. Water comes only in the evening from 6 pm to 7 pm. Apart from this, the water heater is not functioning. It is making a lot of noise and only cold water comes from the faucet.

As you know that my wife and I work in overseas firms. Our office timings are from 11:00 am to 8:00 pm. So, no one is at home to store water in the evening. Scarcity of water and non-functioning heater, both problems are causing a lot of inconvenience for us.

I had a word with the utility manager of the apartment. He assured us to resolve the issue. Unfortunately, it has been more than a week since then and no action has been taken to solve the problem. After waiting for many days, I decided to inform you. Please look into this matter as soon as possible.
I look forward to receiving a prompt response.
Yours Sincerely
Anna White
