LETTER FOR ACCOMMODATION
SAMPLE ANSWER

Dear Sir/Madam,

I have been living in the accommodation provided by the college with my roommate for the past two years. However, recently my room mate changed and the new one and I do not seem to gel along very well because of different opinions and interest.

He is part of the extra-curricular activities and often tends to come late to the room which causes disturbance in my sleeping patterns. Even more, often he plays loud music or brings along some of his friends or a chat. We both being from different streams, do not have much to talk about and there are times when our exams clash as well!

This change in our time tables and contradictory personalities has caused troubles in both our lives and there is an added pressure of adjusting when our entire focus should be on our careers. It would be helpful, if you could either provide me with single accommodation or with someone who has a similar stream as mine.

Best,
Avantika

IELTS Essay Sample Questions # Fashion Copy

You should spend 40 minutes on this task.

The tendency of human beings to copy one another is shown in the popularity of fashion clothes and consumer goods. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

Write at least 250 words.

SAMPLE ANSWER

Man is by nature a social animal and seeks conformity from its surroundings. In stating these lines, Aristotle was correct for the entire mankind even in present times. With more and more people following fashion trends and often being persuaded by the advertisements there is no denying that as humans, acceptance is the primary motive of our lives.

Globalisation, e-commerce, and the internet have brought the world at the reach of every individual. Most individuals are persuaded by the lifestyle of the richer countries or richer or famous people and try to imitate them in their lives. For instance, one can easily find dresses with keywords like “Deepika Padukone style” dress in e-commerce websites. The fashion designers make clothes and they become trending for the common people.

Also, advertisements play an important role in deciding the choices of the consumers in the daily lives. With bigger companies having better advertising power, tend to grab most of the consumers on their wings. For example, most people want to buy an iPhone not because they need it but because it makes them feel it is the best thing to happen to them. All result of excellent marketing by Steve Jobs.

Overall, humans have a tendency to find acceptance and more important receive respect from the society that they live in. Following fashion trends and consumer goods is an easy way to get human cravings satisfied.
