IELTS Writing Task 1 Topic:
The diagram illustrates how smoked fish is produced in a small scope. There are eight main steps in the process of smoking fish, beginning with collecting fish and ending with delivery of smoked fish to the customers.
The first step of the process is fish handling, the preliminary processing of raw fish, which means that fish will be washed, removed loose scales and slime, then gutted and if required beheaded. This primary treatment process is followed by the manufacture of fish product with the next seven stages. The second steps is to add salt to water in a container, where the fish is soaked anywhere in 30 minutes. After brining, fish is heated in 5 minutes, followed by the suspension of them to dry.
At the fifth step shown on the diagram, fish are put in a vat, which precedes the use of wood and smudging during 30 minutes to cure the fish. Before putting it back in the container for storage and delivery to customers by truck, fish colored yellow by injecting fluid in fish, using syringe.
IELTS Writing Task 2 Topic:
Studies show that criminals get low level of education. Some people believe that the best way to reduce the crime is educating people in prison so they can get a job after leaving prison.
To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Education for offenders during imprisonment as a method to reduce the rate of crime has evolved as major topic of concern in today’s society. While I agree that such a solution is effective to reduce crime, I am convinced that it is far from being the best method and there are many better ways of reducing crime.
I accept that education for prisoners may contribute to the reduction of the crime rate. The primary reason is that such a form of education could provide offenders with the working skills that are essential when they return to the community. With improved job prospects, prisoners may therefore earn a living after leaving the prison and are less likely to commit a crime again. Another significant reason is that education could show the offenders that they are still valued by society. As a consequence, they may feel an enhanced sense of humanity and community, and become better citizens after their prison years. These people may then inspire many other people to live without crime.
However, I am firmly of the opinion that education for offenders is not the best solution to reduce crime. This form of education is offered only to those who have committed a crime, and therefore has far less preventive value, compared to other stronger solutions. For example, severe punishments such as longer imprisonment for criminals could deter criminal acts by other members of the public who have the intention of carrying out a crime. There are also other educational methods that may have a stronger and more long-lasting impact on the reduction of crime. An excellent example of this is crime education at school, which helps equip students with the necessary knowledge about crime and crime prevention. This measure is undeniably a more sustainable crime-fighting solution than education for criminals.
To conclude, I firmly believe that although educating prisoners is an effective way to reduce crime, it is not the best solution, as there are more preventive and sustainable measures such as crime education at school and stricter punishments for criminals.
