I have a question to ask in related to a recent exam question that you have posted. the question is, ‘Countries with longer working days are more economically successful, but there are also some negative consequences. Do you agree?’
In this essay I feel like there are three independent areas that I need to connect each other. How longer working hours develop country economy and how longer working days bring social issues.
Is this correct? Or my entire essay should be on longer working days and social issues?
I think that longer working days develop economy is a fact (according to this question) and we don’t need to describe a given fact. Just mention it only in introduction?
I don’t know what I can suggest. You need to look at the method used for each type of essay question by reviewing my models. You need to look at the essay structure, linking, and length of each paragraph. Try to find where your weakness is.
All the best
When I was suddenly catapulted into the leadership of the bus protest in Montgomery,Alabama, a few years ago, I felt we would be supported by the white church. I felt thatthe whiteministers, priests and rabbis of the South would be among our strongest allies. Instead,some havebeen outright opponents, refusing to understand the freedom movement and misrepresentingitsleaders; all too many others have been more cautious than courageous and have remainedsilentbehind the anesthetizing security of stained glass windows.
Furthermore, the writer has done this to show off how the father was like when seeing what ___ has done and how wrong/right it was in the first place ....
I have traveled the length and breadth of Alabama, Mississippi and all the othersouthernstates. On sweltering summer days and crisp autumn mornings I have looked at the South'sbeautifulchurches with their lofty spires pointing heavenward. I have beheld the impressiveoutlines of hermassive religious education buildings. Over and over I have found myself asking: "Whatkind of peopleworship here? Who is their God? Where were their voices when the lips of Governor Barnettdrippedwith words of interposition and nullification? Where were they when Governor Wallace gavea clarioncall for defiance and hatred? Where were their voices of support when bruised and wearyNegro menand women decided to rise from the dark dungeons of complacency to the bright hills ofcreativeprotest?"

Hello, Liz and everyone who follows this awesome blog. I have a question which is really important to be answered, either by Liz or anyone who can offer me some help.
Yesterday I wrote an essay on the following topic:
“Some people believe that allowing children to make their own choices on everyday matters (such as food, clothes and entertainment) is likely to result in a society of individuals that only think about their own wishes. Other people believe that it is important for children to make decisions on matters that affect them. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion”.
In the second body paragraph (about the importance of decision-making by children on everyday issues), I stated that children learn how to be independent, as they are taught by experience and create their own personality. I presented an example of the way a child chooses to dress up, as clothes allow people to express themselves in a unique way.
Through most of the post I’ve been, what i didn’t find is how to answer the question when the topic is contradictory for myself?
For example the topic in first comment about Whether to let children decide on their own or not. What if I’ve opinions in both context what shall I really do?
Should I go through only one perspective or can I mention multiple views on same topic.
Your main ideas are not off topic at all. You’ve organised your ideas and paragraphs very well. But some of your supporting points might less focused. For example, in your first body paragraph you are absolutely right to write about children becoming self absorbed which could continue into their adult life. This is relevant because the essay question is about a society of individuals. But your point about parents not being able to control them is not on topic – this is not about parental control, it’s about selfishness. Even with minor points lacking a bit of focus, it is still possible to hit band 7 in Task Response.
Task Response is 25% of your marks. This relates not only to relevant, well developed ideas but also to addressing the task (following instructions). If the instructions only ask for your opinion and half of your essay is about other people’s views, then part of your essay is irrelevant. IELTS essays are short (no more than 300 words usually) and also highly focused. They are so focused that every single sentence should be planned.

Hi there! Ms Liz, regarding what extent do you agree or disagree, if ever I will stand for partly agree. Which for me, I partly agreee because it is not the best way to deal with the problem, there should be a supplemental option. In my first paragraph, I will discuss the positive effects of physical education in school in fighting obesity problems.
Second paragraph would be this way ” However, there are other options that should be blended in physical education in school to achieve an optimal effect of eliminating obesity. This is the importance of healthy diet that should be incorporated into physical education to achieve an optimal effect in eliminating obesity. Because nowadays fast foods are everywhere which students tend to choose more often regarding everyday nourishment. Lastly, my conclusion would be, “To conclude physical education could give a positive effect in hindering obesity in children, however, to further achieve the best result of lowering cases of overweight individuals, proper diet should also be included. Thank you Ms Liz.
