IELTS Letter Sample Questions # Building

You should spend 20 minutes on this task.

There is a historical building in your town and the city council wants to pull it down because there is no money for repairs. You are not happy with this decision. Write a letter to the city council and say :

  • why is the building important?
  • suggest a solution to finance the repairs.

You should write at least 150 words.

SAMPLE ANSWER

Dear Sir/Madam,

I have been living in Bhubaneswar for the past four years and have become accustomed to the different places it has to offer. Recently, it came to my knowledge that the city council is planning to shut down the house of Raja Vasudevan. Raja Vasudevan was one of the pioneers who helped in the making of the history of Bhubaneswar.

I have visited the place often and agree that the building requires repairs urgently. However, shutting down the building will have more negative impact than positive. There are many people who look up to the place and it can even act as a tourist spot. If the city council collects Rs.10 from the entire city, we are more likely to have around 10 lakh from the city and the rest can be afforded by the council.

Once the repairs are done, the building can be used as the tourist spot and be a profitable site. Although it sounds a distant plan, this will surely help is restoring the building and in turn the history of Bhubaneswar.

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.

SAMPLE ANSWER

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.

IELTS Essay Sample Questions # Teacher Behavior

You should spend 40 minutes on this task.

Some people believe that students work better if the teacher is strict, others think it is better for students if the teacher has a friendly approach.

Discuss both views and give your opinion.

Write at least 250 words.

SAMPLE ANSWER

School years are the formative years for a child and the way the child is dealt with during those days defines his or her personality. Although parents are the most important people in the life of a child, teachers play an equally vital role in a student’s life. Most people believe that it is better for the teachers to be strict while others have the opinion that it is beneficial if the student has a friendly teacher.

A strict teacher always brings along the qualities of well-organized class, motivated students and maximum respect from students. A well-organized class helps the students to understand and grasp the material in a better way. It has been seen that students of such class tend to be more responsible and self-disciplined. Besides, it is very important for a teacher to have his or her children to respect. Often students don’t respect teachers who are polite, having strict teachers help in maintaining the decorum of the class.

However, sometimes the strictness also has a negative impact on the students. The teacher is more likely to become less approachable and students may rebel. Also, the students might not be very active in answering questions in class. Strict guidelines often discourage students from attending classes. They start making excuses which harm the studies.

Overall, although strict teachers help in having organized classes often it makes them less approachable. In my opinion, teachers must choose different teaching styles depending on the type of student.
