IELTS Writing Task 2 in August 2018 with Sample – Topic: Children
Posted: 04 Sep 2018 07:55 AM PDT
IELTS WRITING TASK 2
For school children, their teachers have more influence on their intelligence and social development than their parents. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Some people reckon that the role of teachers is of greater significance when it comes to fosteringchildren’s intellect and individual characteristics. I strongly disagree as I would contend that teachers and parents’ roles combined are essential to facilitate children’s comprehensive development.
On the one hand, teachers’ role proves to be critically important in children’s intellectual and social growth. To begin with, teachers are professionally trained, coupled with their long-term teaching practice. Prior to becoming proper educators, they are required to fulfill intensive coursesin such areas as psychology or pedagogical skills, which makes children under teachers’ guidancebe able to understand the lesson and acquire other useful skills easily. In addition, teachers’ role in today’s world also involves delivering valuable life lessons. During their initial school years, students encounter other children of the same age and begin to form some of their first friendships. In this case, teachers help students be independent and form their own relationships and intervene when necessary.
On the other hand, parental involvement can have an equally significant influence on children’scognitive ability and social development. Firstly, homeschool parents dedicate most of the time to providing high-quality and meticulously planned lessons, so there children will be able toprogress at their own pace. Secondly, it goes without saying that parents are those who provide children with their very first opportunities to develop a relationship, communicate and interact with their peers. In other words, parenting involves discussing children’s social relationships or conflicts and encouraging them to work out everyday problems on their own. This would therefore help children cultivate healthy relationships and build a strong sense of community, for instance.
In conclusion, both teachers and parents have an equally important role to play in terms of the cultivation of an academically and socially successful child.

Are street markets popular in your country?
Absolutely! Street food and markets are a huge part of my culture. Many, no matter rich or poor, go to the streets in the morning to pick up the freshest produce from the street vendors. The thing is that the street produce is the best quality and price! You simply cannot find fish or crabs straight out of (directly)the water onto your plate in a supermarket.
What is usually sold there?
Principally food, but also miscellaneous items. For example, there’s a street that sells different electrical parts, secondhand clothing, decorations, and shoes. But still, the main event is the fresh produce, fish, and meats. That’s what defines our street market.
Do you think people like street markets?
Definitely. No matter what your economic status (how much money you have) is, there is always something for you. Moreover, our street markets are famed for freshness and quality at the lowest prices, so why would dislike that? On the other hand, some people fear being ripped off (being charged a higher price), so they avoid the street markets.
Have you shared anything with others recently?
Yes! Actually, I got a box of 6 bottles of red wine as a gift recently. Since I cannot consume all of that, I’ve shared 3 bottles with my friends, as red wine is a luxury here in Asia. I enjoy sharing alcohol with people, as it’s something that puts you in a good mood!
What do you like to share?
That’s an interesting question. I’m a pretty generous person, so I’m happy to share most of my things. However, I particularly enjoy sharing my food with others. I feel that food is one basic thing that undoubtedly makes everyone happy. It’s a win-win (always a benefit) situation.
What kinds of things are not suitable for sharing?
Well, for me, I’m extremely petite (small), so it’s difficult for me to share clothes with my friends. It’s quite a task for me to find clothes my size, so I don’t like to risk others stretching them out (to make bigger). Furthermore, I think it’s unsanitary to share certain items, like a toothbrush or a toothpick.
Did your parents teach you to share when you were a child?
Of course! Actually, since I’m one of 7 children, sharing was unavoidable. After one child grew bigger, we always shared their hand-me-downs (secondhand clothing). Furthermore, during a meal, we each started with a small portion to make sure everyone got enough, then would go back for seconds (second portion of food)
Part 2: Describe your grandparent’s job
You should say:
– what it was
– how long he or she had this job
– how he or she got the job
– and whether you would like to have this job
Since I don’t exactly understand what my grandfathers did as a job, I will tell you about my grandmother’s career. As it was uncommon for a woman to have a university degree and their own career other than being a stay at home mom (mother who doesn’t work; stays at home to care for the house), I really looked up to her (admired) for this my entire life. She always motivated me to be a strong, independent woman. Now, let me give you more details.
She was a Registered Nurse, mostly focused on caring for the mentally ill. I really admired her for her career choice, as her brother committed suicide when she was young. Because of this, she wanted to provide help to those suffering from mental illnesses. She studied at a famed university in Washington, DC and directly after got a job at a hospital nearby. As she was at the top of her class, she was an extremely attractive candidate for any position, so she got the one she most sought after (desired). I know that she greatly cared for her patients there, as my father used to tell me stories about how she would even invite her patients over to have dinner with their family sometimes! Apart from working as a full-time nurse, she also tended to (took care of) her home and four children. She had this job from her post university years all the way to her retirement at age 65. All in all, I admire her for having a lot on her plate (having a lot to do) but still taking the time to take good care of her husband and children, while still taking the extra mile (doing more than expected of her) to make her patients feel part of her family, as well.
Although I do believe that nursing is a fulfilling career, I wouldn’t want it for myself. For one, I cringe (movement in disgust) at the sight of blood. Moreover, mathematics and the sciences aren’t my strong point, so I don’t believe I would be a good candidate for this vocation. At the same time, I certainly respect others in this field. To sum it up, my grandmother was a woman ahead of her time (a modern, forward woman)!
What changes in employment have there been in recent years in your country?
As far as I know, more and more people, especially the young generations are involved in setting up their own businesses. Thus, the “start-up” community is now more alive than ever, especially tech startups.
Which jobs are most respected in your country?
Well, I have never thought about this, but I reckon that professional careers such as the fields of law, education, and medicine may be the most highly-acclaimed ones. It is mainly because of the fact that people working in these fields can easily earn lucrative income compared to others.
What are some of the important things a candidate should find out before accepting a job?
Well, this is an interesting question. If I were offered a job, I would definitely go through the company’s compensation package such as salary, allowances, maternity or paternity leave, insurance, pension plans, vacations, etc. Also, I’d need to know about my area of responsibilities so that I can make sure that I will not be overwhelmed with heavy workloads down the road.
