IELTS Writing Actual Test in May 2017 & Sample Answers

Sample Answer:

The table compares six demographic indicators of Australia and Malaysia in the years 1980 and 2002.

Overall, while the population in both countries increased considerably over the period, that of Malaysia grew at a much higher rate. Despite comparable figures for male and female population, the two countries saw noticeable differences in the rates of birth, average annual growth and aging population.

After 22 years, the total population in both countries witnessed a substantial growth with the figure for Malaysia nearly doubling its previous data, reaching 24.3 million. While the percentage of men and women of Australia remained steady during the period, there was a slight growth of 0.3% in the figure for Malaysian male population.

The two nations experienced a downward trend in birth rates in 2002, with a larger difference of 1.0% in Malaysia. Their senior population, by contrast, experienced an opposite pattern. Between 1980 and 2002, Australia was home to an extra 2.8% of the elderly while the figure for Malaysia rose much less substantially by 0.6%. Average population growth rate grew by 0.1% in Australia yet fell by 0.3% for Malaysia.

It is of note that Malaysia was home to more people, with higher birth and demographic growth rate, yet fewer senior citizens than Australia.

IELTS Writing Task 2

Some people believe that what children watch on television influences their behavior while others say the amount of time they spend watching TV influences their behavior. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

Sample Answers

There is much controversy surrounding effects of watching TV on children’s behavioral pattern. While it is often said that TV programs have discernible impacts on the ways children behave, a measure of time children channel into TV is also argued to be instrumental in shaping children’s manners. This essay will discuss both arguments and give a concluding viewpoint.

On the one hand, numerous social members tend to back the conviction that several behavioral ways of children can be shaped under the impact of television broadcasts. It would seem undeniable that children have an instinct for learning from and imitating the patterns of those who they may observe. In fact, in various parts of the world, the exposure to televised violent scenes in the films may trigger aggressive behaviors in children. Besides, no sooner do children get access to educationally oriented programs on the screen such as “Helping people to help themselves” than most of them are likely to be encouraged to behave in friendlier and thoughtful ways towards others.

Notwithstanding, the amount of time spent on TV programming also has deciding effects on children’s behavioral pattern. First, when diverting a sheer quantity of time into sitting on the screen so as to watch TV, various children, in all likelihood, are confronted with a sedentary lifestyle because they seemingly sit down on the TV screen and rarely take part in physical activities. Second, the long exposure to TV shows could deprive them of hours for participating in creative activities and socializing with other peers in reality. Therefore, this may be the main culprit of children’s poor social behaviors.

Overall, it is sensible for me to conclude that children’s behavioral pattern is strongly impacted by both TV programs and the time they allocate for watching TV.
