Statistics show that the world’s population is increasing rapidly. It is expected that most of us will be living in cities within the next few decades. The question of whether urbanisation is a positive or negative development remains controversial.

A rapid influx of people moving from rural to urban areas is bound to cause problems. Firstly, pressure on resources such as housing and transportation intensifies. It is becoming difficult for many people to afford adequate housing in cities. A by-product of this is the creation of slums causing low-income families to group together in neglected parts of the city. These people often become trapped in a cycle of poverty that is difficult to escape. As mentioned above, the growth of urban areas can also lead to severe traffic congestion because more and more vehicles travel into the city from the suburbs. This has many knock-on effects, such as problems with air quality. It also leads many city dwellers to experience mental health issues because travelling across large cities is tiring and stressful.
All of this being said, I don’t believe that urbanisation is a wholly negative development. There are advantages to living in large cities that are well managed. For example, there are more schools which means more education opportunities. Access to higher-quality health care is often better in cities. Some cities have also introduced ride-sharing, e-bikes and part and ride services that reduce environmental problems.

My opinion is that many of the problems associated with urbanisation are avoidable but dealing with increasing populations in cities is a formidable challenge. How governments, businesses and society respond to this challenge will dramatically affect the future of our world.

The given map illustrate the center of a small city which have been change because there are lot of development .
Birshire will have undergone a drastic transformation from a rural town into an urbanized area in the future with new infrastructures like roads, a car park, and a supermarket.
First and foremost, all the farms from Birshire will have been removed in the days to come. Griffiths Farm, which is in the top right corner of the map, will have been replaced by a supermarket, whereas Hoolahan Farm, which is currently on the right side of McGoldrick Road, will make way for a parking lot. Moreover, the Farmer’s Market, which is beside Corbie Road, will no longer be there in the future.

Furthermore, apart from the addition of a roundabout at the junction of McGoldrick Road and That Street, Corbie Road will be extended beyond That Street. The open field at the bottom right of the map will be the venue for the construction of a Sports Center. Together with the removal of the shops from the the bottom left, more houses will have been erected.

Some people believe that professionals, such as doctors and engineers, should be required to work in the country where they did their training. Others believe they should be free to work in another country if they wish.

Discuss both these view and give your opinion.

There is a belief of some persons that professionals such as doctors and engineers shall work in the same country where they got their trainings. While, the other half of the people are comfortable with the thought that such professions shall be set free to choose their work place/nation. Those who are against this idea might think that every country have their own way of completing task and doctors and engineers might mess up if their training varies with the real work setting of another country. Whereas, those who support the concept of letting the professionals choose their country may think that doctors are meant to save lives and engineers to do construction work anywhere in the globe.

People who accede in doctors and engineers to do their jobs in the nation where they achieved their licenses have a feeling that the process of completing a task in each nation differs. Thus, such vibe make them think that the difference in working creates a huge complexities in performing even though the end results are same; also, the people have a habit of resisting the change in everything. The client of such skilled personnel may not trust them if they find the procedure of assignment even slightly different. I have witnessed similar incident by myself. There was this Chinese doctor in on of the hospitals of Kathmandu. No any patient was willing to get treated by him because they did not trust the way of treatment of the outsiders.

Despite some people who are against the experts working in another country, there are some of the people who has a feeling that any professional person can do their jobs efficiently anywhere they go. These people believes that all doctors saves the lives of their patients and all the engineers help in construction work besides where they get their licenses from. There might be the change in the way of getting work done yet, their goals are same at the end. For instance, a lot of Nepalese nurses and doctors are being granted working visa for the UK, the USA, and Australia. This shows that although they got training from Nepal, their work is valued in foreign land as well.

My point of view regarding these clause is that the experts should be given the freedom to choose their working environment. It is their decision either to go to foreign strand for employment or to work in the land where they achieve their coaching. No matter how different the learning steps are, if the end result is same. No professionals should be given the criterion of working in the country they took their training from. Doctors are to treat their patients and they will treat them and engineers are to construct houses, buildings, or road and they will continue to build them no matter where they are.

As a result, both the views have their own conception and perception. Some people find it better for doctors and engineers to work where they got their knowledge from, whereas, others think as the professionals should be allowed to choose their desired nation to perform their jobs. Either way the person to provide the facilities should be given right to select their area of working in my opinion.

Band 5
Key features which are selected are not adequately covered. The recounting of detail is mainly mechanically.
Organization is evident but is not wholly logical and there may be a lack of overall progression. Nevertheless, there is a
sense of underlying coherence to the response. Simple vocabulary is used accurately, but the range does not permit much
variation in expression. Although complex sentences are attempted, they tend to be faulty, and the greatest accuracy is achieved on simple
sentences.
