Spam mail Best IELTS Band 7 Coaching in Dehradun

Sample Answer

These days, many companies and brands are using spam for advertising their products or services. Spam or commercial emails are sent to random customers. They often contain misleading subject lines and badly crafted messages. Even though it is a fast and cost-effective way of approaching customers, I consider it unethical.

Let us start by looking at the problems people face due to spam mails. One of the biggest disadvantages of such mails is that they are not targeted to the right people, and the recipient may delete your email or unsubscribe. Moreover, the ‘click through rate’ of such emails is likely to be very low. Hackers can use this method to spread viruses and malicious software hidden in e-mail attachments.

Another issue is that, companies sending spams do not comply with privacy and data protection rules. The willingness of recipient to receive the mail is completely ignored by the sender. Hence, receiving these mails becomes troublesome as it irritates and annoys them. In addition to this, most of the time, there is no useful information provided in these emails. Sometimes it becomes difficult for the users to filter important mails from the inbox full of spam.

Turning to the other side of the argument, sending mails in bulk to a large group of customers repeatedly is the major advantage of a spam. This is a very cost-effective and eco-friendly method of advertising as no advertising cost and printing are involved.

All things considered, spam cause problems for the e-mail users. Instead of opting for  advertising through spam emails, companies should go for other online marketing techniques. Personally, I believe the negatives of spam eventually outweigh any positives. In order to avoid it, people can have an updated antivirus program. Moreover, we should never share our email address and personal information with any unreliable source.

Sample Answer

Nowadays, many parents arrange private tuitions for their children outside the school as they consider that this practice will help their kids to cope with immense education pressure. Not to speak of only parents who are keen to provide extra classes after school hours to their kids, even, schools are also transforming into a full-day study centre. In my views, this practice is causing unnecessary burden on kids.

From last many years education sector has emerged a lot, most schools are not just educated children in the science, languages and mathematics. They concentrate on holistic development of children. Every now and then there are seminars, competitions and extra classes as well as special attention to be given to all the students. These extra-curricular activities always provide great help to students. Additionally, there is a cut throat competition among all the schools to hold the number one position in their city, therefore, they do not leave any stone unturned. They do not show any loop hole in their education system.

However, in some schools due to large number of pupils, teachers are unable to concentrate on each and every student and this search end up by getting additional help from outside. What is more, extra tuitions are always beneficial for weaker students who find it hard to grasp everything related to vast subjects with deeper knowledge in schools. In these cases extra help provided to them after school hours work as boon for them.

To conclude, in few cases children can be benefitted by getting this extra help, studying after school hours, should be encouraged among them. However, pressurising students unnecessarily to get into studies all day is not an ideal idea.

SAMPLE ANSWER

The world is continuously evolving with new infrastructure. With the advent of supermarkets, hypermarkets, and complexes, the way people shop has changed. They have basically sidelined the local markets and small shops. I opine that this is a positive development and this essay will reflect upon a few reasons for the same.

There are various reasons for the popularity of supermarkets. These offer a lot of convenience to the public with various features ranging from multiple payment options to home deliveries. Secondly, they offer quality produce, whether it is a packaged item or fresh produce. Quantity is another strong factor and supermarkets offer generous quantities with more affordable and bargain prices. The produce available in supermarkets is mostly available at fixed prices, resulting in less frequent changes and is less prone to market rate fluctuations. A lot of products generally available are branded, resulting in a more assured and promised buying experience.

These markets are more plush and upmarket, resulting in a better and ambient shopping experience as opposed to the local shops. They offer a plethora of facilities such as hygienic washrooms, televisions, food counters, helpers, trolleys, air conditioning to name a few. Lastly, there is the fact that these places stock everything neatly and display them in an organised manner. This systematic display allows the buyers to purchase in bulk at a cheaper price, consequently reflecting in the form of better spending habits in people. To sum it up, I think these factors have a positive impact on people’s lives and hence, this phenomenon of shopping in supermarkets and avoiding the local shops is a positive one.

Writing Task 2: Essay- ‘Appearance isn’t everything’

Writing task 2

You should spend 40 minutes on this task.

Write about the following topic:

‘Appearance isn’t everything’. Discuss.

Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant example from your own knowledge or experience.

Write at least 250 words.

Sample Answer

It’s a human tendency to judge others by their outer appearance, but is it fair? A good physical appearance is the only parameter to decide the status and worth of a person. I think it’s unfair to draw conclusions and opinions about others without actually knowing them. Some people try to demean others by making a negative impressions, in order to derive a false sense of superiority and gratification.

Generally, people tend to make perceptions about others by outer appearance like their looks, complexion, dress etc. They hold such preconceived notions about others in order to accept or reject them. Stereotyping makes people judge others with a closed mind-set, thereby, hampers correct judgement. We must not follow general rules to judge others rather should develop our own set of standards. This way we can stop making wrong assumptions by rejecting negative influences around us.

Only external appearance cannot decide the personality of an individual. We also need to look at his inherent inner qualities which are sometimes latent. In order to manifest the true nature and qualities of someone, time is required. A person with an ordinary appearance can be a great person. Abdul Kalam Azad, a renowned scientist and former President of India, is a perfect example of this. He was an extra-ordinary man with ordinary looks. All people are born equal regardless of our outer appearance. Having a beautiful heart is more important than having beautiful looks.

Personally, I believe in the saying that ‘All that glitters is not gold’. Irrespective of the physical differences, we must respect each other as human beings and should stop being censorious.  A positive attitude with no prejudice can help individuals to overcome this problem of judging people by their looks.
