USA 8.60% 6% 2.60%

Sample Answer

The given table compares the percentage of GDP that five different countries invested in healthcare services in 2002.

It is clear that the healthcare spending of both public and private sectors of France as percentages of GDP are the highest among the five countries. On the other hand, the figures for public and private expenditure are the lowest in Italia and Japan respectively.

Of the five countries, in relation to GDP, public healthcare spending was noticeably higher in France, at 8.6%, followed by German with 7%. In addition, the proportion of private spending in France also was the highest, which made France become the biggest spender for health care in total, with 11.4%. Though private spending was ranked fourth, German total budget to take care of people’s health was still the second biggest.

In comparison with its counterparts, the private sector in Japan had the most modest funding with 1.4% while Italian Government just used 5.3% of its GDP for healthcare. As a result, the total budgets expended in both countries are the lowest, at just over 7%.  In the same year, the US was ranked third in two measurements at 6% and 8.6% in public and total spending respectively.

IELTS Writing Task 2 Topic:

Some people believe that anyone can create art such as painting, poetry, music and so on. Others think that a person should have special abilities to create art. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

Art is a diverse range of creative activities that express the creator’s imaginations. Naturally one can assume, to create art all you need is good imagination. However, some others believe that you need to learn special skills to become an artist. This essay shall discuss both the views in detail.

Any person with a creative vision and ingenuity can create art forms such as writing poetry, painting, or composing a song or two. Drawing up a mental picture of your feelings and expressing them effectively on paper will make you an artist. For example some people are sometimes driven by longing or grief for someone, which makes them spill their feelings out in a song or a painting. This is why people feel that creating art is not that hard and can be attempted easily.

On the contrary, there are people who firmly opine that without learning how to express creatively, imagination alone cannot help one become an artist. It requires years of training for people to become great artists. To become a musician for instance, one needs to learn all the fundamentals of rhythms and melodies; to play a guitar one needs to learn all the right chords. It doesn’t help if your imagination is vivid; you need to know the correct technique of expressing the same to distinguish your creation from the ordinary mediocrities.

To conclude, I’d like to say that as easy as it sounds, creating art is definitely not a piece of cake. Sure, one might be innate in some art forms, but enhancing that skill is very important to create masterpieces.
