The older you get, the more difficult life becomes.

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.

IELTS Writing Essay# Advantages and disadvantages of local food?

Writing task 2: You should spend 40 minutes on this task. Write at least 250 words. Write about the following topic:

Food travels thousands of miles from farmers to consumers. Some people think that it would be better for our environment and economy if people consumed locally produced foods.
To what extent do the advantages of this would outweigh the disadvantages?
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant example from your own knowledge or experience.

Sample Answer

Due to modernisation and globalisation, people in different countries are able to enjoy varieties of foods in all seasons. This further makes a country or a region to focus on producing the best with the available resources in given climatic conditions.
Foods travel from local farmers to ultimate consumers and have to go through various stages to be sold in national or international markets. These stages may involve bulk-buying, processing, storing and packaging etc. It not only leads to increase in price of the food but also reduces its nutritional value. It has an adverse impact on our environment too. In order to avoid such problems, consumers can directly buy fresh and tasty foods from the local producers at reasonable prices.
Consuming locally produced foods also helps in controlling over-production and wastage of natural resources as there is no need to buy the food in bulk for the future storage. In addition, we can indirectly contribute in the growth of small and medium sized enterprises in every region. This will further boost the economic development of a country.
On the other hand, due to geographical and climatic reasons, all types of foods cannot be produced at one place. If we only buy goods from local farmers, we will not be able to enjoy varieties of foods throughout the year. Therefore, transporting food is the most viable option to cater to the needs of different regions.
So, in my opinion, we must try to consume the foods which are easily available locally but for enjoying the variety of foods throughout the year at a reasonable price, we have to buy foods from other regions as well. (274 Words)

IELTS Writing Sample Answer # Famous at Young

Most people dream of fame and fortune. For some fame comes instantly while others have to go through a rigorous struggle to achieve it. Although, some people become successful at a very young age, for others it may take some time. In this task, I will shed some light on the topic of being famous at a young age and whether it is good or bad thing.

Some people become famous at a very young age. Is it a good or a bad thing?

SAMPLE ANSWER

In the modern times, with the advent of social media, it is quite easy for people to become famous at a very young age. Being famous is not only associated with talent but with hard work too. Some people believe that becoming a known personality at a young age can have several repercussions while others are of the view that age does not matter and its all about how an individual handles fame. dilemma

Being famous brings a lot of social issues along with it which can have a major impact on an individual. People may cheer you up for anything done right and then turn their back on for small mistakes done. For instance, when Justin Bieber started his music career he was instantly admired, but with time, when he started making changes in his lifestyle, there were lot of accusations that he had to face, jeopardizing his career.

However, being famous at young age allows you to make all the mistakes that one either ways makes, learn from them and move on. A person who is able to handle being famous from young age tends to grow as a mature adult and venture out in different directions towards the later stages. For instance, the Indian cricketers who got to be in the hall of fame from beginning, could relate to the battles and towards the end of their career, smoothly transit to other viable options.

In my personal opinion, as long as it does hampers the personal growth, there is nothing wrong. However, if it impacts the talent of the individual, it is better to grow the talent perfectly, before he or she is shoven off in front of the public.

IELTS BAND 7 

 

People often believe that musicians, sports stars and artists are born not made.

IELTS Writing task 2. You should spend 40 minutes on this task. Write at least 250 words. Write about the following topic:

People often believe that great musicians, sports stars and artists are born not made. Do you agree that we are born with much of our ability, or are there other factors that can make us good sports people or musicians?
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant example from your own knowledge or experience.

Sample Answer

What makes great artists, musicians, writers, or athletes: Nature or Nurture? This question has intrigued philosophers and scientists for centuries. I personally think that factors like family and environment play a decisive role in one’s life and successful career. Nevertheless, some natural talent is required to excel in areas such as sport, art or music.
Let us first look at how an innate ability in art or music or sport can make a difference. Certainly, it differentiates a person who has learned to play a sport or an instrument from someone who has mastered that skill. In other words, natural talent wins over a learned technique. It allows gifted people to reach a level which their hard-working counterparts can never manage. Also, learning that extra element is almost impossible, no matter how hard someone practices or how good the teachers are.
However, natural talent is an internal factor that can contribute to someone’s success. There are numerous external factors such as family, environment, experiences and training etc. which have their own significance. Good musicians, exceptional sports starts or other successful people are not made in one day. Years of hard work, family support, training and devotion make them what they are. Composer Beethoven and tennis legend Roger Federer are the telling examples.
To sum up, nature and nurture are inseparable. Inherited talents can affect our ability to reach the top level in certain professions. However, people can acquire skills and achieve their goals if they live in a conducive environment.
