supermarket Best IELTS Band 7 Coaching in Dehradun
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.

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.

stages-of-life Best IELTS Band 7 Coaching in Dehradun

Sample Answer

Many people think that life becomes more difficult as we get older. But I believe, it entirely depends on our attitude that how we perceive life. There are different stages of life and all are full of hardships. The nature of difficulties in life may vary from time to time. Life is all about facing difficulties as we learn to grow amid challenging circumstances. As long as we live life with a positive attitude, we can fetch the best out of it.

During the initial stage of life, we have less responsibilities and more enjoyment. But we learn basic things like crawling and walking with the support of our parents. As life moves forward we get the pressure to perform well in studies but we also get the pleasure to enjoy with our friends. Problems related to career, marriage etc. start manifesting in adulthood. The level of needs and responsibilities increases with the increase in age. While facing problems at different stages of life, we realise our true potential and get the power to win over such obstacles by acquiring skills, knowledge, and wisdom.

Life certainly becomes tougher in older age as far as physical strength is concerned. The elderly indeed have certain health issues with low level of energy. However, some aspects of life may be simplified with age as we are left with limited duties and responsibilities to fulfil. We get more time to spend with our family and friends. Therefore, in a way life becomes easier in old age as we start accepting life with an open mind set.

To sum up, though life is difficult and full of ups and downs, it is still beautiful. Difficulties prevail throughout various stages of life, but it entirely depends on people how we handle them to lead a better life. By inculcating habit of saving and maintaining a healthy life style, we can make our life enjoyable. So, we can say that different stages of life have their own pro and cons.
