IELTS Writing Task 2: The older you get, the more difficult life becomes Best IELTS Band 7 Coaching in Dehradun

Sample Answer

Many people think that life becomes more difficult as we get older. But I believe, it entirely depends on our attitude that how we perceive life. There are different stages of life and all are full of hardships. The nature of difficulties in life may vary from time to time. Life is all about facing difficulties as we learn to grow amid challenging circumstances. As long as we live life with a positive attitude, we can fetch the best out of it.

During the initial stage of life, we have less responsibilities and more enjoyment. But we learn basic things like crawling and walking with the support of our parents. As life moves forward we get the pressure to perform well in studies but we also get the pleasure to enjoy with our friends. Problems related to career, marriage etc. start manifesting in adulthood. The level of needs and responsibilities increases with the increase in age. While facing problems at different stages of life, we realise our true potential and get the power to win over such obstacles by acquiring skills, knowledge, and wisdom.

Life certainly becomes tougher in older age as far as physical strength is concerned. The elderly indeed have certain health issues with low level of energy. However, some aspects of life may be simplified with age as we are left with limited duties and responsibilities to fulfil. We get more time to spend with our family and friends. Therefore, in a way life becomes easier in old age as we start accepting life with an open mind set.

To sum up, though life is difficult and full of ups and downs, it is still beautiful. Difficulties prevail throughout various stages of life, but it entirely depends on people how we handle them to lead a better life. By inculcating habit of saving and maintaining a healthy life style, we can make our life enjoyable. So, we can say that different stages of life have their own pro and cons.

Writing Task 2: Essay on ' Time is Money ' Best IELTS Band 7 Coaching in Dehradun

Sample Answer

I completely agree with the famous phrase written by Benjamin Franklin that ‘Time is Money’. Time is indeed precious and priceless. We require time to earn money but money cannot buy the time which is lost. We all get limited amount of time in our lives. Therefore, it depends on us whether we utilise our time productively or just waste it aimlessly.

This proverb signifies that time outweighs money. As we know, time is moving ahead continuously. Present becomes past with a blink of an eye. It means that we must respect time more than anything else. The actions we take at the right time defines our achievements in life. Opportunities in life must be identified and harnessed timely to experience an event of great grandeur. Understanding the true value of time is essential to taste success in life. Life is uncertain and the amount of time we get in life is predefined and limited. I believe, a moment gone never comes back, it is lost forever. Therefore, we shouldn’t be careless with our time.

Therefore, time management is an indispensable skill to increase efficiency and effectiveness. In order to manage our time, we must have certain goals to attain. Every individual should prepare and follow a schedule of planned activities to accomplish aforesaid target. In this way we can make our actions goal-oriented and less time consuming. The act of time management symbolises the value of time one holds in one’s life.

To conclude, like money, time can neither be earned nor saved for the future use. Time and life are completely inseparable. We have no control on time but we can control our actions. By taking right actions at right time, we can make our life more satisfactory .People who waste their time in wandering aimlessly, tend to suffer. We can either make the best use of the time or just repent afterwards.
