Children using tablets and smartphones Best IELTS Band 7 Coaching in Dehradun

Sample Answer

In the past few years, modern technology has become accessible to society at large. More and more parents are relying on computers and laptops to make their children learn new things. In this essay, I will discuss both merits and demerits of using technology for learning.

Let’s begin by looking at the advantages of using tablets and smartphones. The main positive is that it supports social interaction and enhances communication skills. In other words, children can easily connect with their family and friends. Moreover, due to their advanced features, compact devices like mobile phones have become more than just a calling device. They can be used for entertainment and learning as well. Children get the chance to learn through various educational applications. Furthermore, playing games on smartphones, increases their mental stimulation and concentration.

Turning to the other side of the argument, excessive use of electronic devices makes children devoid of physical activity. It not only hampers their personal growth but also physical development. Another issue is that, children prefer isolation and become addicted to these devices. As a result, it adversely affects their interpersonal as well as social skills.

Considering both the sides, we can conclude that balance is the key. Although, smartphones and tablets have multiple benefits, reading and other physical exercises are also necessary for children’s overall development. I believe, the educational benefits of using electronic devices outweigh any drawbacks.

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.

IELTS writing task 2: Essay # Reasons behind developing negative attitudes toward foreign travelers and solutions to change this perception.

IELTS task 2 Essay:

Reasons behind developing negative attitudes toward foreign travelers and solutions to change this perception.

Many people believe that international tourism is bad thing for their countries. What are the reasons for this? What can be done to change this negative attitude towards international tourism?

Reasons                                                                                                      

  • Environmental degradation, cause pollution and can damage the environment.
  • Loss of architecture and ecological balance, damage to wildlife.
  • Cultural differences sometimes create problems among local people and tourists.

Solutions

  • Provides employment.
  • Generates foreign revenue, boosts Economy.
  • Helps in improvement in infrastructure of the country.

Sample Answer
A group of individuals consider foreign tourism has more negative effects in a society rather than positive impacts. Certainly, there are several reasons behind developing negative attitude towards international tourism. However, by taking some steps, views of people can be changed.

The opponents of international tourism may argue that tourists cause pollution and can damage the environment. Tourists’ destinations are more polluted in comparison to other areas in a country. Foreign visitors often get criticised due to their irresponsible behaviour towards a host country. Many times tourists get caught throwing litter here and there. This excess of littering disturbs local residents. Furthermore, tourists do not always respect beliefs and customs of different culture. Foreign travelers may hurt the feelings of local people due to poor understanding of others’ beliefs. What is more, sometimes youngsters get influenced by tourists. The country may lose its own values and sense of identity.

Nevertheless, with the help of government this situation can be tackled. First of all, the government should explain the benefits of international tourism which helps in boosting the foreign revenue of any country. During their stay, travelers spend a hefty amount on accommodation, transportation, meals and many other facilities. This way local people earn a good amount. International tourism not only provides monetary support but also generates employment in a society. By having negative attitude towards foreign tourists, is a loss of people only. Moreover, the government can provide the guidelines to tourists just after their arrival in any country. . The government should have proper advertisements and banners for spreading important knowledge. There should be a list of rules and regulations can be given to them so that activities by tourists can be performed accordingly

To conclude, there is no doubt that tourism is a back bone of any economy at this point of time. However, with the involvement of the government people’s negative attitudes can be changed towards the foreign travellers. Simultaneously, the government can raise the awareness among tourists also to protect the local habitat.

IELTS WRITING TASK 1

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
The tables below show the distribution of students at UK universities by mode of study and gender.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.

Male Postgraduate Students
Mode of study 1996/97 2000/01 2005/06 2009/10
Full-time 75,370 87,070 1,15,550 1,51,275
Part-time 1,13,961 1,08,770 1,38,505 1,17,105

 

Female Postgraduate Students
Mode of study 1996/97 2000/01 2005/06 2009/10
Full-time 62,344 85,215 1,18,675 1,46,980
Part-time 1,08,702 1,25,855 1,72,640 1,63,340

Sample Answer:

The tables compare the proportion of males and females enrolled in full-time and part-time postgraduate courses at UK universities in four academic sessions between 1996 and 2010.
It is evident that student enrolments in full-time courses followed an upward trend for both the genders throughout the given period. The number of males rose from 75,370 in 1996-97 to 151,275 in 2009-10 while that of females increased from 62,344 to nearly 146,980 during this period. These figures also indicate that there was a gender disparity in full-time postgraduate programmes. In 1996/96, the gender disparity was the highest (75,370 males versus 62,344 females) but the distribution became more balanced in the following years.
Focusing on part-time courses, overall more students were registered in these programmes as compared to full-time ones. In 1996-97, about 114,000 males and about 109,000 females selected part-time courses. In the next two academic years, there was a rapid increase in the percentage of female students whereas the number of male entrants fluctuated. The year 2005-06 had the highest enrolment rate in part-time programmes for both sexes, 138,505 males and 172,640 females. Notably, the number of students dropped in 2009-10.
In general, it can be concluded that full-time courses were more popular among males than females during the given period. The trend for part-time courses, on the other hand, was the opposite.
