Write at least 250 words.


Child labor is an international concern as it damages, destroys and spoils the present and the future of the child and the country. A child is the hope of a nation and yet when millions of them are deprived of a carefree childhood, it directly impacts the growth of the country. Although child labor is common in most of the parts of the world, it finds its crunches more in developing and underdeveloped sections.

There are several reasons for forcing a child to work. Firstly, it increases family income. A family which is finding it difficult to make its need meet is more likely to send their child to work than to school. Secondly, child labor is more likely to work at lower wages, which is exactly more factories are likely to hire them. Even more, a child is less likely to indulge in dishonesty and is less liable to misbehave or be violent, which is what makes them perfect for domestic aid.

Child Abuse

Although it might seem that the issue of child labor can never be solved, there are several ways in which we can surely fight the issue. Firstly, the government needs to make sure that the laws made strictly adhere. Even more, the general public should be made aware of the severe consequences of child labor. Secondly, an increase in employment opportunity for adults would help in overcoming the issue of poverty which is more likely to reduce the number of children being forced into labor work.

Overall, it is not only the responsibility of government to ensure that the number of child labors is reduced. But every educated person of a country to ensure that the children of the country get a bright future, a future that every child deserves to have. (301 Words)


IELTS Speaking Latest Cue Card# Lesiure Activity

The latest cue card is here and we are talking about lesiure activity that you enjoy doing.

Describe a lesiure activity you like doing.
You should say:

  • Where you do it?
  • Who you do it with?
  • Why you enjoy it?
  • And say what kind of people you would recommend that activity to, and why?
Sample Answer:

Today, I’m going to talk about an activity I enjoy doing in my leisure time. It may sound strange but I love watching Bollywood movies. On Sundays, I invite my close friends to my home for a high tea and all of us watch a film together. It is not always a latest movie. Sometimes, we prefer to see old blockbusters which ruled the hearts of millions of Indians in the seventies.
The main reason why I find this activity fun is that I work six days a week, Monday to Saturday. I hardly get time to meet my friends on weekdays. So, this plan acts as a perfect stress buster for all of us. It not only brings us together but also enables us to share our feelings and problems.
Since most of us lead a busy and stressful life these days, we should make sure that we have some time for our family members and friends. I believe that the communication over social networking sites is very different from face-to-face interaction. Online communication is affecting the way we interact with people and the type of relationships we make. It is also killing our ability to build strong relationships with people. Anyone who wants to bring a positive change in their life should try a cup of tea and an entertaining film with your loved ones. I reckon it will do wonders.
