Government or individuals responsible for the environment?

 

Some people say that it is the individual’s responsibility to protect the environment while others say that it is the Government’s primary role. 

Discuss both views and give your opinion.

Sample Answer

Saving the environment is no longer a subject matter that is limited strictly to science. With changing climatic conditions, a particular community cannot be held entirely responsible to keep a check on the environment. Common environmental conditions such as water pollution, air pollution, noise pollution and global warming is a matter of serious concern. In my opinion, it is under the government’s control to solve environment related issues which cannot be implemented without an individual’s support. 

On the one hand, there is an ongoing discussion on an appropriate role of the government regarding saving the environment from global warming. Therefore, industrial construction related activities cannot commence without the approval of the government. As half of the population of our country are currently reeling with water related crises, abnormally high temperature, deforestation and melting of Himalayan glaciers, this issue cannot be ignored. It is the duty of our government to take immediate actions involving the signing of petitions, treaties, saving wildlife and the land. For instance, they can promote usage of solar energy and also ban industries from dumping industrial waste in the water bodies.

On the other hand, however, managing environment issues cannot be successful until and unless the individuals take an interest in it. Being a member of society, everyone is equally responsible for their environment. As ‘Every drop of water makes the mighty Ocean’, an individual can make personal efforts such as avoiding usage of plastic items, keeping their neighborhood clean and reusing products. For instance, tiny steps like taking car-pools instead of personal vehicles to work can also be implemented.  

In my opinion, if the government and the citizens play their part simultaneously, without blaming each other. It would definitely bring a positive effect on the environment. The government can impose laws to prevent environmental degradation while awareness and education among the citizens can have a significant effect on such issues. By modifying their lifestyle and living habits we can help save the environment.

IELTS Speaking # Describe someone who learned a foreign language?

IELTS Speaking Task Cue Card

Describe someone who learned a foreign language?

  • Who this person is?
  • Which language did he/she learn?
  • How did he/she learn it?

And explain what you think about this language and its benefits.

Sample Answer

In this swiftly advancing time, being bilingual or multilingual has become mandatory. Someone who just knows their mother tongue faces a lot of challenges mainly in their professional lives. This cue card topic brings to my mind a colleague who learned French in order to get better placement opportunities abroad. I remember making fun of him for joining an Institute to learn a foreign language. It was later when a job preferred candidates who were multilingual that I realized the significance of learning a second language. 

 

Apart from English, French is a widely used language for international communication. My friend, Saumya received an offer letter of a multinational company in Canada and learning French proved an asset for her career.

 

Learning a new language enriches the mind and helps us interact with foreign natives, both personally and professionally. Recently at a wedding ceremony, I met Saumya and she told me about her professional achievements after learning a foreign language. I was surprised to look at her talking over the phone so fluently in French to her work colleagues back in Canada. She even told me about her plan to learn Spanish in the near future. 

 

From my point of view, being multilingual is really beneficial when it comes to our future. Taking Saumya’s example, she got the opportunity to travel across the world and attend international conferences mainly because of her command over a second language. I personally admire the French people mainly for eloquence with which they speak, the sophistication with which they carry themselves and a sense of nobility that they possess. Being an internationally recognized language, French has numerous advantages. More importantly, not only French but learning any second language will always be fruitful.

IELTS Speaking Task Cue Card # Talk about a cologne you use?

IELTS Speaking Task Cue Card

Talk about a cologne you use?

  • Which one it is?
  • How often you use it?
  • Is it necessary to use on a daily basis?

And explain why do you use it?

Sample Answer

Since the dawn of civilization, men and women have been applying perfumes, essential oils and colognes. As different individuals have diverse choices when it comes to food, clothes, opinions, similar is the case with perfumes. It is said that an individual’s fragrance plays a crucial part in his/her identity and is used as a symbol of an evolved and refined society. My all-time favorite cologne is Bloom by Gucci mainly because I prefer my fragrance to be sweet and fresh rather than strong because of my perfume intolerance to bold fragrances. One gets the full force of the white flower bouquet with a tint of coolness after applying it.   

 

As Gucci Bloom is an exotic and expensive perfumes, I don’t wear it on a regular basis. I don’t like to spend a fortune for just a perfume, so for everyday use, I go with Victoria Secret’s mist collection as they aren’t that heavy on the pocket. More importantly they last long even during humid weather conditions of my country.  

 

Fragrance is like an accessory and many people even today are unaware of its benefits. Perfumes tend to relieve stress, it is also used to make a statement and show our unique personality. Perfumes evokes memories as well when a particular fragrance or a signature scent reminds us of someone. Depending on one’s personal taste, you can choose from the variety of colognes available in the market like fruity, musky, floral or oriental

 

Personally, I think no one would want to smell foul and sit beside someone with an unpleasant odor. To be socially acceptable, apart from staying hygienic and clean, people wear colognes when they step out of their houses. As perfume also build self-confidence, we wear it to complete our outfit and to be more attractive especially for important occasions.

DIFFICULT WORDS-  

  • EXOTIC- originating from a distant foreign country
  • ORIENTAL- characteristic of countries of the East, especially East Asia
  • EVOLVED- develop gradually

IELTS speaking task cue card # Describe a water sport you want to do?

IELTS SPEAKING TASK CUE CARD

DESCRIBE A WATER SPORT YOU WANT TO DO?

  • What was the success?
  • When it happened?
  • How did he/she accomplished it?
  • And explain why you thought it was a success.
SAMPLE ANSWER

A water sport that I fancied to experience for a long time is Scuba diving. The life underwater has always fascinated me, and it would grant me the opportunity to come in contact with the flora and fauna of marine life. As seen in some documentaries, unlike other water activities which involve noises, Scuba diving is a calm and serene sport in which the diver gets away from the troubles of the outer world, experiencing a whole different world altogether. All we are surrounded by is incredible sea creatures and hear the sound of bubbles while we breathe. It is captivating the way humans can breathe deeply underwater with other oceanic beings and coral reefs.

Unfortunately on my last vacation to Goa, I planned but had to cancel my Scuba diving reservations due to some unavoidable medical conditions. I felt envious of my cousins who did it and couldn’t stop talking about how relaxing it was which made me all the more curious. Therefore, this year on my vacation to Kerala, I would definitely love to experience this thrilling sport.

As far as I’ve learned, Scuba diving is considered to be a less complicated sport. It is said to eliminate stress. As underwater we have zero gravity, scuba diving is like flying underwater and being weightless. It is full of fun and though there’s a professional trainer present with us under water, some people who have aqua phobia might feel claustrophobic or fear the marine creatures.

As exploring nature is a meditation in itself, being surrounded by the exotic marine creatures would be a dream I’d like to live forever. Considering that 70% of the world is under the sea which clearly means that it’s unexplored. Therefore, getting to see that undiscovered part with just a dive would be a once in a lifetime experience. There’s no better feeling that encountering those unique species for the first time.
