IELTS Essay Sample Questions # Travelling Parents

You should spend 40 minutes on this task.

Parents who work in jobs that require a lot of traveling have no time for their family. How does this affect the family and the parents? Discuss and give your opinion.

Write at least 250 words.

SAMPLE ANSWER

The world is a global town and people have started traveling more than ever. There are some who take on a journey for personal reasons while most of them have to go round the world for work. With globalization, more and more companies are expanding allowing business to grow, resulting in frequent business travels. Although frequent travels look fancy outside, they have an impact on the social life of individuals.

Parents who have to travel frequently are often left with very little time for their family. In addition, if the time duration of the visit is long, most parents miss out on the growing years of their children. For example, an employee working at my firm once complained of how his new born could not recognize him for few months. Even more, it takes away the daily routine of a family. There are more fluctuations with people moving in and out on regular basis. This often leads to a dismantled family where individuals know less of each other.

Often children, especially the teenagers, feel a lack of connection when their parents are not around for the most part. It has been observed that having parents at home when a child comes and goes out is good for the children psychologically. Studies have even proved that children who spend less time with their parents are more likely to have trouble forming relationships. Even more, having a healthy family life is more likely to boosts the confidence of individuals working in high-pressure jobs.

Overall, although traveling offers new experiences to individuals when done once you are part of a family, often leads to stress for both parents and the children.

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.
