Directors of large companies often receive much bigger salary increases than ordinary workers. Employers’ organisations say that in a global market this is necessary to attract the best management talent.

What are your views?

Write at least 250 words.

Sample Answer

In the past few years, the corporate sector has witnessed immense growth globally. This progress has created several job opportunities for professionals in various fields at all levels. When it comes to salaries, we often see a huge difference between the earnings of the ordinary employees and top managers. Senior managers usually draw massive salaries whereas the junior and middle level workers are paid just average amounts.

In my viewpoint, I would agree with the statement that directors should be paid more as compared to their subordinates. Firstly, their job responsibilities, working skills and problem-solving attitude are significantly different from that of the other employees of the organization. Secondly, executive directors and managers are accountable for the profits and losses of their companies. They have a tight schedule as they have to fulfill their responsibilities within the given duration. Considering all these factors, I think that the senior managers deserve a higher payroll.

Moreover, an attractive salary acts as a motivation for the workers as they will also work harder to reach the top position. Therefore, companies can use this factor for inculcating a sense of healthy competition among employees. It also helps in getting the best out of them.

To conclude, we can say that it is vital for companies to provide impressive salary hikes to their directors.  This practice motivates the staff to work diligently for reaching higher positions in the organization.

GT Writing: IELTS Letter: Can’t attend a teacher’s wedding

General training: Writing Task 1 

Your English teacher has invited you for her wedding. But, you are unable to attend the function.

Write a letter to her. In your letter

  • thank her for sending the invitation
  • explain why you cannot attend the ceremony
  • give information about any future plan to see her
Sample Answer

Dear Deepali Ma’am,

I believe you are doing well. Thank you very much for inviting me to your wedding. Unfortunately, it would not be possible for me to attend the ceremony as these days I am in an overseas training program facilitated by my organization. This training is an essential part of my job profile and would upgrade my knowledge. Hence, it is not feasible for me to take a break and travel to India.

It would have been a great pleasure for me to be a part of this special occasion of your life as you have been a mentor to me during my graduation. Your guidance and motivation have always helped me in making important choices about career and life. Certainly, you were one of the best faculties in the Bachelor of Arts course in Satya College. I will surely visit you when I return to Delhi, probably by the end of November this year.

Once again thank you for inviting me. I wish you all the best for your wedding and life ahead.

Yours sincerely,
Satyam Virmani

You were supposed to receive a friend at the airport. But, for some reasons you are unable to do so. Write a letter to your friend. In your letter
– explain why you can’t come,
– guide them regarding other options to get to your home,
– describe the plans/visits you made to show them around when your friend arrives.

Sample Answer

Dear Sushmita,

I believe your preparations to come to India are in full swing. I am eagerly waiting to see you on Thursday evening. As discussed earlier, I had promised to collect you from the airport but unfortunately I would not be able to keep my words due to an unplanned official meeting.

Just yesterday my boss informed me about an urgent meeting of foreign delegates that will take place on the coming Thursday, the day of your arrival. I have been asked to give a presentation too. In this case, it won’t possible for me to reach the airport as we had planned earlier. Don’t worry. The airport has an excellent taxi service. My suggestion for you would be to take a cab from the airport to reach my home. You can book a cab online or hire one from outside the airport.

I just can’t wait to see you and I have planned many things for your stay. I have reserved seats for a get-together with our college friends in the ‘Memories Café on Friday evening. On Saturday, we would go shopping and enjoy the street food of Delhi. We will plan the rest of days as per your preferences.

I Look forward to seeing you soon! (207 Words)

Yours lovingly,

IELTS Essay Sample Questions # New Technologies

You should spend 40 minutes on this task.

Due to the new technologies and the internet radio is going to disappear in a few years. Do you agree or disagree with the statement?

Give your opinion.

Write at least 250 words.


We have made a rapid advancement in the field of technology and managed to even surpass our own expectations. Gone are the days when pigeons were used for communication. Mobile phones and the internet are the new dimensions of our space and time. While new technologies are heading towards us with a jet speed, the old ones are disappearing even faster.

Just after its invention, the radio was used primarily for communication in the armies and the navies. However, in recent times, radio is being used in wireless technology like mobile communication etc. We are at a time when the internet has made information easily accessible. From news to songs, one can easily get whatever they like on the internet in an instant. Whereas, they have to wait if they want to hear something on the radio.

Although the internet provides everything instantaneously, there is much more fun in listening to the RJ in the local language, giving news and other fun talks. There is a personal connection while talking with the RJ and explaining problems. And then, there is always a surprise element. Radio is also the best thing you can turn on sitting in your car.

Overall, in my opinion, even though various new technologies have taken over, radio is still a very tough contender and will take a long time to become dormant. People in this fast paced life often look out for personal connect, which radio provides.
