IELTS ESSAY: Reduce air traffic by imposing taxes?

Air traffic is increasingly leading to more noise, pollution and airport construction. One reason for this is the growth in low-cost passenger flights, often to holiday destinations. Some people say that governments should try to reduce air traffic by taxing it more heavily.

Sample Answer


Aviation sector has witnessed a boom over the recent years. More and more people are travelling by flights, mainly because of less travel time. Another key reason behind this trend is discounted airfares for domestic and international tourist destinations. Such offers attract millions of passengers every year. This travel for recreation not only causes heavy air traffic but leads to excessive noise and pollution. It also requires new airports to cater for the escalating number of travellers.

Many experts argue that heavy taxes should be imposed on airlines to control air traffic. I strongly agree with this view.

The construction of airports is also augmenting noise pollution, which has negative effects on people residing in the vicinity of the airport sites. It is not only their peace that gets disturbed but they also become more prone to heart diseases and hearing problems as well. Such serious damage to the lives of people is alarming and needs to be controlled immediately.

Some people are aptly correct when they say that government should levy heavy taxes on aviation companies to control the noise pollution caused by aeroplanes and construction of airports. Imposition of heavy taxes will control the over-development of this sector resulting in less air pollution and noise pollution.

Moreover, the airports should be constructed on the city outskirts to ensure that the life of people living around would not be disturbed. The heavy tax imposition on aviation sector will control the rapid increase in construction of airdromes, resulting in less air pollution. These measures are a must to protect our environment and safeguard the life of people residing near airports.

IELTS Writing task 2: Schools concentrate too much on conventional subjects

As the world advances, invents and creates, establishes and inaugurates, and just generally progresses, the school system stays unchanged, outdated and sadly irrelevant as well as oblivious to the changes happening outside of it.
Students can always be found complaining about the education system. They not only find  it dull but also uninspiring and outdated. And I believe the students do have a point. Looking at the education system as a ladder into the corporate world, most people including me would feel that the education system has failed its basic aim- to prepare children for adulthood and its challenges.
By teaching academics, and putting pressure on tests, the child is ill prepared for the physical tasks awaiting them. Most tasks in the world require action. Only theoretical knowledge is not sufficient, one should know how to apply it practically. Unfortunately, schools put a lot of emphasis on bookish knowledge.
Traditional Subjects like History or Geography are taught in a set pattern with innumerable dates locations and patterns, instead of teaching lessons it becomes memorization, simple mug up. Rather than teaching the value of land, children are taught as to who owned the land and when. I do understand the need to pass on our story from generation to generation but there is no point in forcing the information to become plain statistics and data. That is what computers are for.
My belief is the dire need for morals, soft skills, handling of stress and challenges should not be ignored by schools. Leaving these most essential traits for students to learn themselves makes the education system highly ineffective. Children should get a feel of the challenges of the contemporary world in their formative years.
To sum up, students should get a wide array of choices ranging from handicraft to computer engineering. There should be no limit on how many things a student can attempt in their own time. Getting qualifications in all the subjects should also not be mandatory. Let us give ourselves some freedom, in this world we came to live life not to stress over it.

IELTS Writing task 2: Horizontal and vertical cities

Writing task 2 
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.

Sample Answer

The bar chart provides information about the variation in the end of year values of four main international market indices over a period of eight years between 2002 and 2008.
Looking at the details, the American index was the strongest in each of the eight years. In comparison, the values of other three indices were considerably less than that of USA. Starting off at just over 8000 points in 2002, the US index reached its peak value of around 13000 points in 2007, before dropping off to its lowest level at nearly 9000 points in 2008.
The German market index was the second most valuable throughout the given period, peaking in 2007 at about 8000 points before witnessing a 3000 point drop in value by the end of 2008. There was a tight correlation in the value and performance of German and French markets. The value of French market index was less than that of the German index in each of the years except 2002. Even though the Korean market index had a similar performance trend, its value was the lowest.
Overall, what stands out from the data is that all four of the market indices rose steadily in value during 2002-2007, but there was a sharp drop in their values in 2008. Notably, Dow Jones, the American market index, was the highest valued index throughout the period in question whereas KOSPI, the Korean market index, was the lowest valued index.
