SAMPLE ANSWER

Over a period of two centuries, we have advanced exponentially in the area of medicine. From cancer to tuberculosis, we have almost cured everything with the help of animals. Although some people believe that it must be illegal to use animals for the testing of drugs, others argue that it is for the benefit of humanity.

The major medical treatments have been made possible through animal testing including cancer and HIV. Testing new drugs often has several side effects, sometimes even causing death. Considering this, it could be very strenuous to get human volunteers for testing, hence hampering the progress. Secondly, we as humans share similarities with animals. Testing drugs on any other species would not give the expected results.

However, with animals being used for testing, countless animals are experimented on and then killed after their use. Others are injured and have to live their remaining life in captivity. Even more, often many drugs never see the light of public use. Most animal activists stand against the death of innocent animals because many times the tests fail without any positive outcome. In addition, animal testing often costs an enormous amount of money as animals must be fed, housed and cared for testing.

Overall, in my opinion, each animal is an integral part of our Earth’s ecosystem. The ongoing experimentation on animals can have devastating implications in the long rung. Keeping in mind that many animal species are becoming endangered, this issue deserves immediate attention. We should start looking for alternatives of testing drugs on animals.

Discuss both sides and give your opinion.

Sample Answer:

In the recent years, the fight on getting a better job has inclined. Today, many people believe that attending a university is only one way to get a satisfying job than other people, while some defenders say that it is not always right. Thanks to the new idea of college dropouts who are making a dramatic change in the society. This essay will discuss both the ideas and explain them with relevant examples.

Firstly, it is definitely true that a degree is very crucial for applying to a job. Many MNCs require a list of qualifications. A graduated degree, high language proficiency level and computer and technical skills are all required in main stream jobs today. A graduation degree is the only way to prove that a person is ready, trained or has learned all mandatory skills required for work. Having a degree can make a person more attractive to the Hiring Agency for being offered a great job. Secondly, some professional careers such as a doctor, engineers or lawyer require a certain specific subject oriented skill set and knowledge which cannot be acquired all by yourself at home.

On the other hand, in some streams like art preferably, a degree is of no practical value. The amount of dedication and time one has devoted to their form is what matters. For example, a mechanic or business workers needs to only value experience and develop some skills which they can get only by practice. Even though, a person is not highly educated, if he/she starts working early and gains a lot of experience, it can also be easy for them to get a satisfying job and achieve success in the future.

Hence, to sum up, both sides have their own experience making it difficult to decide which path is right. However, it is always a positive side that having a degree will be a great guarantee for hunting a rewarding job in the work market.

IELTS Writing task 2: Horizontal and vertical cities

IELTS Writing task 2: Horizontal and vertical cities

You should spend 40 minutes on this task.
Write about the following topic:
Some people believe that it is better to live and work in vertical cities. Others, however, think that horizontal cities are better for living and working.
Discuss both views and give your own opinion.
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant example from your own knowledge or experience.
Write at least 250 words.

Sample Answer


With industrialization came urbanisation meaning the formation and development of Metropolitan cities.   These mega cities tended to grow at rapid paces, sometimes vertically and sometimes horizontally. Depending on the authorities and the level of development at the time, there developed vast differences between the two.

The first type of city, the horizontal city, was usually found under rich and liberal governments housing individual cottages with wide lanes and private gardens. Today these cities, also referred to as garden cities, are spread out on a vast area of land usually in sparsely populated expanses.  Living and working in such a city would definitely be a pleasure, although the real estate prices in such locations tend to be unusually high. The drawbacks would mainly be regarding the area of natural habitation which constantly needs to be cleared in order to maintain the pace of development.

The other type of city that is the vertical city is more commonplace nowadays. The origin of most of these cities was due to the unfettered growth of population and lack of land for further development, which forced people to move skyward. Here, work is easily available and property prices tend to be much more affordable as compared to the horizontal cities. Although the main problems with these cities include sound nuisance, garbage management, water shortages and a host of other problems, land is not an issue. These urban spaces not only offer modern and sustainable living but also provide room for corporate development.

To give my opinion as a summary, I would state that looking at today’s advancements and weighing the pros and cons of both lifestyle choices, horizontal cities sound very appealing but are not likely to last for very long.  In contrast, vertical cities are by far more economical and sustainable. I believe that vertical cities are the way forward.
