Sample Answer

Migration from countryside to cities is growing at a very rapid pace. Various countries are experiencing this pattern today. In this essay, I will discuss the reasons as to why this happens and the effects it has on the inhabitants of the cities.
On one hand, the main cause of this is unemployment. Rural areas experience slow growth as compared to cities due to their remote locations and lack of basic infrastructure. There are several parts in my country, India that still have dirt roads and no electricity. Without basic facilities in place, it is very difficult for companies to come up and set factories and offices there. Moreover, majority of the people in countryside are engaged in farming. With modernisation of farming techniques and less dependency on manual labour, most of the people have lost their livelihoods leaving them with no choice but to flock towards cities.
Regarding the effects felt by urban residents, perhaps the biggest problem is overpopulation. Cities nowadays have become big concrete jungles where only a certain amount of people can fit in. It increases the burden on already over laden infrastructure. Local transports suffer exponentially and the number of vehicles on the roads increases rapidly, having detrimental effects on the environment. Accommodation becomes expensive as well as property markets skyrocket leading to hardships for people as many may never be able to buy houses in their lifetime.
To sum up, poverty and unemployment are the main reasons as to why people move from rural areas to cities. To overcome this issue, government should allocate a certain amount of funds from the budget for development of rural areas. Effective laws should also be put in place to regulate accommodation prices and city dwellers can be more welcoming towards people from the countryside. (297 Words)

IELTS-ESSAY-#-HEALTH-AND-FITNESS-IS-DECREASING,-IELTSBAND7,-DEHRADUN

Sample Answer

All countries across the globe are witnessing a substantial increase in the weight of their citizens. Declining health and fitness levels are becoming a matter of concern. In this essay, I will discuss the reasons behind this problem and discuss a few measures that can be taken to address this issue.
In earlier days, people used to carry out their daily tasks themselves therefore, had better fitness levels. The current generation, on the other hand, follows an inactive and sedentary lifestyle. In my view, this change in the lifestyle is the major cause of the problem. In addition, people these days prefer to use different forms of transportation, rather than walking as it is more convenient and is less time consuming.
Furthermore, physical activities such as running, cycling etc have become less common and more of a hobby. Another major reason is the change in the eating habits. Today’s generation prefers to have unhealthy and fatty fast food over a proper nutritious meal. The rapid rise in the popularity of fast food joints such as Mc Donalds, KFC, Burger king etc is a telling example of how people ignore their health and well being just to satisfy their taste buds.
To recommend a few ways, the government should advertise the harmful effects of junk food and impose heavy taxes on the sale of fast food. Bicycle stands and separate cycle lanes should be constructed in different parts of every city across the globe to promote cycling. The governing bodies and local councils should encourage people to use bicycles as it is less harmful and it has health benefits too .Research has shown that such initiatives are very successful. Amsterdam is an ideal example of such a city that has integrated cycling as a major mode of transport for its inhabitants. Due to these measures less than 10 percent of its population is obese.
To sum up, the sedentary and inactive lifestyle of today’s youth and poor diet are the major reasons as to why, people are not as fit as they used to be. The need of the hour is to run advertisements about fitness and make people aware about the ill effects of obesity. (365 Words)

IELTS Essay #laws are needed to make people recycle more of their waste

You should spend about 40 minutes on this task.
Write at least 250 words. Write on the following topic:

Some people claim that not enough of the waste from home is recycled. They say that the only way to increase recycling is for government to make it a legal requirement.
To what extent do you think laws are needed to make people recycle more of their waste?

IELTS ESSAY #LAWS ARE NEEDED TO MAKE PEOPLE RECYCLE MORE OF THEIR WASTE, IELTSBAND7, DEHRADUN

Sample Answer

In this drastically changing world, our resources are depleting at an alarming rate. The need of the hour is to recycle, so all the individuals and the government should take responsibility and come up with an initiative to recycle more of the waste. Studies have shown that most of the waste from homes is not recycled, either due to the unawareness of the homeowner or lack of services from the government or local council. I strongly believe that strict laws should be in place for recycling and in this essay, I would like to discuss my views about the same.
Firstly, the ever growing need of humans has already left a huge void in our natural resources and official data from the governments across the world have shown that on a global average less than 20 percent of all the household waste generated worldwide is recycled. Countries where strict laws are in place for recycling are able to manage their resources better. A clear example of this is Japan, where the local councils give out recyclable bags that are segregated according to their colours. Any waste that cannot be recycled is charged separately and this encourages all the residents to recycle effectively and produce as less waste as possible. Another example is Sweden, where various schemes have been launched by the Swedish government, in these schemes the more you recycle, the more you get subsidy towards your council and electricity bills.
In conclusion, I would like to conclude by saying that, countries across the globe need to form an international governing body that mainly focuses on recycling. Strict rules and regulations should be made and countries that do not recycle their household waste should be dealt with stern actions and imposed heavy fines. (293 Words)

IELTS Essay # Traffic congestion, IELTSBAND7, DEHRADUN

Sample Answer

Traffic has become a major problem in most metropolitan around the world. The city centre and central areas are generally the most congested and they give rise to various new issues. In order to tackle this ever growing problem, the government has come up with a policy of charging vehicles when they drive into the city centre at certain times. In this essay we will look at both the positive and negative views and present our opinion.
With congestion charges in place, people will start using public transport and this will lead to fewer vehicles on the street and reduce traffic congestion significantly. It will have great positive effects on our environment and will help cities to reduce pollution. The money raised from congestion charge can be spent on other form of public transport and increasing alternatives to driving.
On the negative side, over dependency on public transport will increase the burden on an already stretched infrastructure and that may lead to fatal accidents. Congestion charge will encourage people to visit out of town shopping centres and business will suffer losses.
In the end, I would like to say that even though congestion charge is a good initiative, it is not the perfect solution and instead of charging vehicles that enter the city, the government should launch campaigns to promote the idea of car pooling or alternatively promote other modes of transport like cycling.(234 Words)
