Hello, and welcome to Study English, IELTS preparation. I'm Margot Politis.

0:18

Today we'll look at the Writing Task in the essay section of both the general and academic

0:24

IELTS tests.

0:26

IELTS essay topics are of general interest and relate to current issues in society.

0:33

You can expect to be asked about:

0:37

The media, education, environment,

0:45

health, communication, technology

0:53

and society.

0:55

Being familiar with issues in these general areas is important.

1:00

Listening to English language media will help you develop a bank of ideas on topics like

1:05

this.

1:07

An issue in health could be about children eating too much and not exercising enough.

1:14

You could be asked to discuss a statement such as:

1:18

Children's eating habits and lifestyles today are more likely to be harmful than beneficial.

1:28

You should know the essay instructions. These tell you how much time you have and how much

1:34

you need to write.

1:36

You are instructed to spend about 40 minutes writing the essay, which has to be at least

1:42

250 words.

1:44

With practice you'll know without counting what your 250 words look like.

1:50

You will also be asked to give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples

1:55

from your knowledge or experience.

1:59

This is one of the instructions, so you need to follow it.

2:04

Reasons are saying why you think something is true or not. You could write:

2:09

An increasing number of children are becoming obese because they are eating too much junk

2:15

food.

2:17

Reasons are supported by examples, like this:

2:22

For example, aggressive marketing of such foods towards children is one of the contributing

2:28

factors.

2:31

Relevant examples are examples like this that are clearly connected to the question.

2:40

Now let's look at an essay question, and how to analyse it before you write your answer.

2:47

How well you do this will help with your task response, which is one of the criteria used

2:52

to assess the essay.

2:55

Let's look at a question topic. Here's a typical statement:

2:59

The ageing populations of more developed countries are going to cause social and economic problems

3:05

for society in the future, especially for the younger generation.

3:10

With this is something called the question task:

3:16

To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?

3:21

The essay question is always presented in this way as a statement followed by the question

3:27

task.

3:27

First, let's look at the statement. Read it carefully.

3:33

The ageing populations of more developed countries are going to cause social and economic problems

3:40

for society in the future, especially for the younger generation.
