    Q. Young people are much more aware of abd concerned about the issues like environment , poverty and animal welfare than previous geberation . What is your own opinion.

    By the passage of time the importance and the practicality towards the general issues of human life ,animal life and environment has become improved. Now, the people of present world are considered as much more interested , more motivated and well informed about the such issues as compare to our past generation.

    However, I think the we are called the people of modern and scientific age and the science and the technology have played a tremendous role in the knowledge and interest of young generation in every aspect of life. Take the environment, for example. Through the computer the people come to know more and more about the current environmental situation from all over the world and also come to know that what measures should be taken to protect the environment on the government basis or on the individual basis .Now the people are very conscious about the environmental issues because they have come to know the importance of healthy and clean environment .As compare to this people of the past had very limited sources of information.

    Furthermore, the people of today are living in the world of competition and this competition have developed a strong ability to grow ,to educate and to Compete with the poverty .For example these days the people from any status of life are getting their education through school ,colleges and universities and if they are not able to go there they take private or online classes because they know education is the only way to get rid of poverty .Comparatively in the past the competition was very limited in every aspect of life.

    Likewise, the new generation is more motivated toward the neglected area like animal welfare because the technology and education have made them understand that the animal are also very important to maintain the balance of world and also how we can protect them . For example these days through computer and tv it has become very famous and easy to campaign all around the world that how we can protect the ending species of animal . In the past such measurements regarding the protection of animal was not noticed on such international level.

    In conclusion, i must say that the importance of issues depend on the time and demand . So, we should keep ourselves with the current trends of the world .

    Q. Some people believe mobile is phones are most useful in professional lives while some believe they are most useful in personal lives. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion

    Today the world of mobile phones, smart phones for their features and very much popular in new generations, specially smart phones series made the world crazy. Now a days mobile phones are very commonly used thing around any age any profession or belong to any status But, some people believe that mobile phones are most useful in professional. Yes it is true! And good, why? Let me explain in my way. The professional use of mobile is very effective like a company manager can easily notify their employee or group of employees about any urgent or normal meeting by simply send text messages to avoid paper wastage. In professionalism usually used smart phones with that you can do any work anywhere for instance will make excel files, word documents, Check your emails rather then you will open a big size laptop you can do the same with mobile phone. Travel with work makes efficiently with all your data having smart phone. It carry coolly in your hand, pocket. Many of the times the newspapers are not available so, with Internet facility u can read news on mobile and find good job through sites as well. The disadvantage is too much use of mobile phone will effect gradually on your health such as eyes, fingers, neck But if you use safely you can get save ever and after. Professional use of mobile is not the only quality the use of mobile in personal lives that’s also amazing! For instance we communicate easily with family in any conditions good or uncertain conditions of the country when you are outside from home. Social networking is one of the best app in mobile phone it will help you to make new friends and never be bore anymore and will improve and make happiness in your lives, downloads chill music, In emergency medical app will help you and anywhere you can easily call to ambulance, watch movies having in your phone while best in long travel by bus.
    In conclusion people mostly believe on the priority of their own use rather it’s professional or personal. In my opinion I can’t go with one both believes are right but, in a balance manner for instance do not stuck you mobile phone in professional or personal use both qualities will give you entertainment and work together. I like my smart phone It will helps me a lot while I m reading books, listening radio etc. In last Mobile phones are very useful device that makes our life little easier.

    Describe your position

    Dear Mr. John,
    I am writing this letter to make an apology that i had to join your office on the position of Assistant Manager from the next week but due to some uncertain circumstances it will be difficult for me to join on the certain date.
    Actually, my daughter who is studying in USA last night met a severe road accident . Although her friends and doctors have informed me that her condition is out of danger now but still she needs to go through with some surgeries . We do not have any relative and close family friends over there who could take good care for her. So, i must be there for her better care and for her moral support in this critical situation.
    I realise that it will be inconvenient to you, but i will really appreciate if you would allow me to take my position three weeks later than planned.
    I look forward to your prompt response.

    Yours sincerely,
    Seema, Japan

    Explain to where you live
    Describe the problem
    Gives reasons why you do not want this development.

    Dear Sir,
    I am writing this letter regarding an article published on your news paper a week Before on the enhancement plan of area and the activity of local airport which is hardly on 20 minutes walk from the residential area where i live. Kindly give me a chance to point out the problems and disasters that could be raise due to such development.

    First of all , this type to big projects could more destroy the peace of an area and the risk level of security and undesirable situation could be increase more.

    Secondly,the land they are planing to use for the development of airport , the people of our area are using that
    land to celebrate the functions and to organise sports activities.

    To sum up ,i totally disagree with such type of development because above mentioned problems are quite alarming which affect the health and life of people.

    I will really appreciate if you could give this matter your immediate attention by writing an article on your news paper mentioning the disasters i have discussed and draw the attention of concerned authorities toward this matter,

    Yours faithfully,
    Seema

      – introduction has a bit more detail. Place details in the body part.
      – Do not use “to sum up”
      – keep last line general like “I will really appreciate if you could give this matter your immediate attention”
      – As per your question, you can write your name below “Yours faithfully or sincerely”

    Q. It is generally accepted that families are not as close as they used to be.
    Give some reasons and suggestions.

    By the passage of time it is observed that the emotion ,relation and the attachment between the families have become changed. Now we are called the people of modern age and the families of this modern age are less interactive and more reserve as compare to the past.

    We are living in the world of competition and I think this competition is the obvious reason of this distance between the families because due to the competition the people are struggling very hard , they want to earn more and more money and want to compete the other people in every aspect of life. By doing this their approach toward life and relation have become very practical and they even do not have enough time to think about other issues . For example , to give a brighter future to next generation the people are moving to other countries and become so busy in the struggle and this way they create a distance in the relationship.

    In my opinion, the best solution of this problem is that our media should telecast the dramas, films and documentary for the awareness and importance of such values.

    On the other hand our government should also encourage the new generation by giving the good job opportunities so they will be encouraged to work in their own country rather than move to other countries . By having this approach the people will be more interactive with their families.

    Furthermore , the people of present world are highly influenced by the modern technologies like mobiles and laptops. These technologies have also changed the social circle and the importance of the people. For example , these days every one like to share their happiness , problems and experiences on the social web site like Facebook, Viber, Skype and Whatsapp rather than to discuss with families and consequently this approach have developed a strange relationship between the families.

    I think to avoid such situation the parents should make the restriction on the use of mobile phones and internet . Likewise they should make the possibility to make their children more interactive with the families by arranging get together and party. By doing this a strong relationship will be build between the families.

    In the conclusion, i must say that the time has changed the value of every thing but the importance of strong relationship between the families can not be change and if we will not understand the value of this bounding we will be loose some day.

    Q. Some people believe that children leisure activities must be educational otherwise they are complete waste of time
    Do you agree or disagree?

    The free time activities play a very important role in the growth and success of a child. Some people prefer learning and creative activities for the children because they consider that education is the basic and the only requirement of a child.

    Personally, i believe that the free time activities should be fun and play because the children are getting enough education from their schools and tuition as per age and time requirement . They are already in the pressure of study . So, the children should be encouraged to adapt the mind refreshing activities like sports.By adapting such activities their mind can start to think in a new direction and such activities help the children to become more confident. For example, if a child would like to play football in the free time . He will not only get the chance to interact with the new people but also get the chance to compete with other children and learn how to overcome the emotions and controls over the nervous in case of failure. Consequently , as a part of game he will become strong enough to handle the situation that could not be learn from any school .

    Furthermore, the physical leisure activities play a tremendous role in the physical growth and health of a child . Such activities keep the children active and fit. For example, if a child like to play outdoor games like cricket, hockey,football etc he will try to keep his health good and according to the requirement of the game and due to this he will try to take good care of his diet and routine. In contrast to this the educational activities are limited to mind growth.

    Likewise , by encouraging such activities if a child is not so good in the education can make the carrier in other filed of life and get success without wasting time and depression because all the children can not get education on Same level. Every children have different level of understanding .

    In addition to this, the indoor gaming activities also play a excellent role in the awareness of a child . Like , if a child is like to play the play station , game boy, etc. he come to know the use of a technology . He feels like the part of present world and can confidently talk with other children.

    In conclusion, i must say that the free time activities should be fun and play because these activities are not only mind refreshing but also help in self growth and self discovery of a child . Otherwise the children can get tired of studies.

  9. Alam Alam says:

    The human life passes from different stages like infancy, childhood, teenage hood,adult and old phase. Every life stage has different charm and beauty that could not be denied.That is why some people consider the teenage years as the most memorable and precious part of life and some believe that the adult age is more valued and cherished .

    I think the teenage phase is the time to live in the world of fantasy ,dream and happiness. The practical approach and struggle towards life is supposed to be none. That is why this stage is free of experiences struggle , pain and responsibilities. This phase of life is surrounded by the people who sincerely cares , love and fulfill the wishes , needs with out any personal intention. The education is the only concern of this time but in our society the parent takes all the education responsibilities . For example they select the best school, provide good environment ,arrange the fee and other expenditures.

    On the other hand the adult life is practical step toward life. Although life is full of struggle ,achievement but At this stage the people become independent to take decisions and start to enjoy the freedom of life because like before now they are not dependent on the surrounding people. For example if they want to go out with the friends they can go without the restrictions and The most important decision of marriage is taken without any interference .

    Generally, both aspect of life have some valuable happiness according to that time. But, personally i enjoy the adult phase of life because the freedom of taking decision really help me to build the confidence and get the success .

    In conclusion, i must say that happiness is not bounded for any particular phase . It is dependent on the human nature that what things make them happy

    Kindly check my response against Task -2 of July 10th IELTS GT writing exam and advise improvements, if any.

    Question:
    Some people believe mobile phones are most useful in professional lives while some believe they are more useful in personal lives. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

    Answer:

    With the advent of mobile phone technology its usefulness has also increased in recent times. One group perceive that mobiles are more useful while at work or professional lives, whereas other think of it as more handy at homes or in personal lives.

    Utility of mobile clearly depends on the nature of work or task, whether it is in personal life or professional. People who think it as more useful during professional lives are those mainly working in marketing or business development fields because they find it more convenient to be connected with their clients whether they are on the go or at office.

    Further, with the presence of smart phones these days, same are rapidly replacing desktops and laptops making it more handy for professionals to get connected with their inboxes and mail servers. Smart phones are not only helping them in performing different business analysis but also making them capable of arranging business meetings in terms of video conferencing.

    Nevertheless, there are other people who like to use mobile phones only for their personal lives. These people think it as a utility which can only benefit them during personal use. But with ever changing technology mobile phones are also getting reshaped in terms of their applicability. We cannot deny the fact that they are not only restricted to just personal lives.

    Furthermore, people who don’t want to indulge in mobiles more than their personal lives are people who generally avoid it usage in their professional lives. There might be several reasons like lack of technology awareness or age factor.

    However, in my opinion, mobile phones are more useful in professional lives than personal lives because they are taking place of computers from performing simple and nifty task to complex and lengthy calculations which is more than attending just a regular business call from customer.
