Just wanted to know if there is a ques in writing task 2
How the disadvantages outweigh the advantages?
Do we need to write both disadvantages and advantages at the same time and then writing in favour of disadvantages in the end or we just need to discuss the disadvantages?????
Moreover, if you are slightly under words in task 2 like if you only write around 237/238 words, is that a problem?
I have an alternative for the introduction above,
if you don’t mind, you can correct it for me..
“Some people believe that because of the tourism grew up widely which influenced the usage of English to become the most spoken language, it will soon make it as the choice of language to be spoken internationally. Owing to this prediction, there would be some advantages in increasing mutual understanding and economic growth among nations. Otherwise, there also would be some disadvantages related to cultures.”
When we are asked if advantages outweigh disadvantages, do we discuss both advantages and disadvantages in BP1 and BP2 respectively or just give our opinion in introduction and discuss the one which we choose. For example if we say advantages outweigh disadvantages then we just discuss advantages in the body paras or still discuss both.
See my model essay above – it shows you how I put two advantages in one paragraph. The central theme of the paragraph is “advantages” – this is what IELTS are looking for – central themes.
I’m wondering for advantage and disadvantages essay.
Could I put any conclusion sentence in last paragraph. Or I don’t have to write any conclusion for this type of essay.
Hey Liz I have a query regarding advantage disadvantage essay, do we have to give our opinion in conclusion as I feel u have given ur opinion in conclusion in this model answer , I thought we only have to give our opinion if the question asks do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages but not for simple advantage/disadvantage essay .Kindly help in this regard
Thanks in advance
Hi mam liz..its my first time to paraphrase a questions for task 2 in writing and the question is ” some people think that it would be better for large companies and industry to move to regional areas outside large urban centers. Do you think the advantages outweigh the disadvantages?
I have a question about an “Advantage Disadvantage essay”. When I see question like this: “Do you think the advantages of economic development outweigh the disadvantages?” – may I state my opinion in the thesis statement? Or should I leave it impersonal?
Thanks so much Liz. My exam is this week and your lessons have been of immense help. I am however confused about something . In this advantage-disadvantage essay, I noticed an opinion was given at the conclusion. I thought opinions are only allowed in opinion essays. Thanks once again as I await your response.
Hello Liz, in your advantage and disadvantage model essay, you gave two examples for each section. My question is that if I give only one example for advantage and two examples for disadvantage, does it lower my score ?
Is it correct format If i write the balanced conclusion (means there are merits and demerit) in advantage and disadvange type essay????
Thank you for this wonderful site and your tips. Could you please clear me how to approach this kind of essay. for example, “Many people starts travelling to other city. is it a positive or negative trend”. i am very confused how to approach this kind of essays, are they same like advantages and disadvantages type?
looking forward to hear from you soon.
Can u please clarify me:
In advantages overweigh disadvantage., Do I need to mention advantages and disadvantages and then conclude?
-Is this positive or negative development ? ( what structure I’ve to follow in this type of question ?) Body para 1 – negative side
Body para 2 – posivite side
It is same as advantage and disadvantage essay or some thing else ?
Hoping for your reply soon as my exam is on 25 Nobember
