    Read newly added sample Argument and Opinion essays with tips and explanations. Good for IELTS Task 2 Writing Band 6 or 7

    Try this argument essay question about access to a university education. It’s very important that you write a balanced argument before giving your opinion.

    It is sometimes argued that too many students go to university, while others claim that a university education should be a universal right.

    There are then model answers on the following pages for different types of essay and different questions, with some brief guidance on each.

    It is important to analyse model answers for IELTS essays because there are different essay types, and these will require different ways to answer them.

    While the topics are predictable enough, the actual questions are invariably extremely precise. Again, there is also a good reason for this: the examiners do not want you to learn an essay, they want to test your English and see if you can answer a precise question, rather than produce a general answer to a general topic.

    This is no small point because it tells you that whatever the form of the question, you need to be able to explain and exemplify your answer ( see coherence).

    Faced with a blank page, you have only 60 minutes in which to write 400 words by hand. This includes 150 words describing a diagram or data, plus 250 words giving your opinion on an issue.

    It doesn’t help that few people actually write reports or essays by hand nowadays! Therefore, it’s no surprise that writing 150 or 250 words in the time allowed is the biggest concern of many IELTS candidates. And yes, there is a penalty in IELTS if you fail to write enough words. Usually this is a 0.5 reduction in your score.

    Differences between countries become less evident each year. Nowadays, all over the world people share the same fashions, advertising, brands, eating habits and TV channels. Do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages of this?

    This question clearly is about the process of globalisation and whether it is a good or a bad thing. However, you need to be careful not to just write a general globalisation essay. Globalisation is a big idea and can refer to many different things. Here the question  asks you to focus on the concepts such as   fashion, brands, eating habits and television. This means that you need to refer to these concepts in your essay and not, for example, simply write about financial or commercial globalisation.

    This post will show you how to write a good thesis statement and how we need to vary them according to which kind of question we are asked in the IELTS writing test.

    A thesis statement is the most important sentence in your IELTS writing task 2 answer.  It is contained in the introduction  and each introduction should have one; along with a paraphrase  of the question and an outline statement.

    I disagree with your first line. The suggestion that you need schools to be educated is wrong. What are welfare countries? "Another argument"? Where is the first argument? Sorry, but this is poorly written. It s like you learned some big words and decided to use them, but you don t know how to do so correctly. Arguments are vague or non existent and your conclusion is watery (what do you mean "on the other hand"? The final line is an addition to your final claim, not an opposite position.
