BEST IELTS Daily Task, 16th June
ACADEMIC WRITING TASK 1:-
The table below shows social and economic inductions for four countries, according to the United Nations statistics. Describe the information shown below in your own words. What implications do the indicators have for the countries?
|Annual income per person (in US$)||1100||15760||160||130|
|Life expectancy at birth||76||78||51||47|
|Daily calories supply per person||3326||2846||1927||1749|
|Adult literacy rate (%)||99||99||68||34|
The table compares the statistics of four different countries with regard to four social and economic indicators, according to the United Nations statistics. As is evident from the table, Japan is number one in terms of annual income per person. The life expectancy at birth is also the highest, closely followed by Canada. In terms of adult literacy rate, both countries stand at 99%. The daily calorie supply per person is the highest in Canada (i.e. 3,326).
Japan should be classed as the most developed among these countries, because it has the highest figures for three out of four indicators. Also, high daily calorie supply per person needs to be optimum, not maximum. Thus, calorie supply required for an average person need not be an indicator of development, beyond a point.
Zaire, on the other hand, has the lowest figures for all the indicators which determine the physical quality of life of the population. Zaire has to improve a lot in its government policies. The life expectancy at birth is also very low (i.e. 47). On the other hand, Canada and Japan will have more aged population (senior citizens) due to high life expectancy at birth. Peru, though not exactly at the bottom, is having figures towards the lower end and will be reckoned as a less developed country.
GENERAL WRITING TASK 1:-
You have received a letter from your bank, asking you to acknowledge receipt of a new bank card.
However, the card was missing from the envelope.
Write a letter to the bank’s head office. In your letter
● explain why you are writing
● express concern about the missing card
● ask them what they intend to do
I am writing to inform you that I received a letter from my bank today, which was supposed to contain my new bank card. Unfortunately there was no bank card enclosed in the envelope when I opened it.
I telephoned the bank to explain the problem, but I could not get through to the right department, even though I waited on the line for over half an hour, which was extremely annoying.
In the letter, you asked me to acknowledge the receipt of the card, but obviously I cannot do this as I have not received it. I am now very worried because it is a possibility that my card has gone to another customer or got lost. What will happen if somebody has already used the card and spent my money? Will the bank repay me?
Is it possible for the bank to cancel this card so nobody else can use it? Could you also send me a new card by secure means?
I hope to hear from you soon.
WRITING TASK 2 (AC+GT):-
Some people believe that song lyrics which glorify violence and criminal lifestyle should be banned. Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of such a ban.
During the past few decades, people have argued at length about the usefulness and appropriateness of songs that condone violence and give celebrity status to criminal and their lifestyles. Some suggest that a ban on all such songs would be only suitable measure, others, however, disagree. But what would be the advantages and disadvantages should the government decide to pass such a law?
One potential advantage of a ban on such song lyrics is immediately apparent: young people, whose personalities are particularly malleable, wouldn’t be exposed to songs that might influence them to commit criminal or otherwise violent acts. Additionally, as such songs usually target minorities, whose rights are so often neglected by the state.
There are, however, quite a few disadvantages as well. A blanket ban on songs with such content would contravene artists’ right of freedom of speech, one of the most cherish rights in the world of entertainment and art. This would be especially troublesome as violent lyrics are usually found in rap and hip hop, two music styles that are directly linked to already disenfranchised communities, and a ban like this would most probably put a strain on the relationship between the government and these groups. Finally, as there is no scientifically proven link between exposed to art that propagates crime and violence and actually committing crimes and violence, a ban might not even achieve its most basic goal of bringing crime numbers down.
To sum up, a ban on song lyrics that promote violence and criminal acts would protect the minorities that are often targeted by these songs, for instance women and gay people. However, it would also inflame feelings of anger in the groups commonly associated with such music and exacerbate their relationship with the government, as well as constitute an infringement on artists’ right to freedom of speech.

Do you think sleep is the best way to relax?

Do you think that sleep is important?
Yes I think so. Sleep is very important to relax the body and the mind. We feel re-energized and re-vitalized after a good sleep. However, I also feel that it should be of limited hours. Oversleeping is also very bad.

Sleeping patterns vary with age. Children generally sleep more than adults. Those who do a lot of physical work also need more sleep. The elderly sleep for only 5-5 hours a day and it is enough for them because they have very little physical exertion.

PART – 3 DISCUSSION
What kind of home do most people in your country live in?
Our country has a diverse section of people living across, from different geographical backgrounds; people all over the country live in different kinds of home. People living in urban areas tend to live in apartments, while those living in rural areas, can’ either live in cottages or semi-detached house or a terraced house.
Do you think moving to a new home can bring problems to people?
Shifting is always a problem and involves a lot of things that need to be taken care of. But, if they are not taken care of properly, they tend to cause issues like management and adjustments. Some people face issues because they are not able to adjust to their new house. Or the new people around them!
Do you think people in your country like to live with their parents?
Most people in my country love to live with their parents, but then with the new generation and the concept of modernization and westernization creeping in, there are some people who tend to not live with their parents. They want to enjoy their own freedom and become more independent. Our country is seeing this shift, with more and more people moving towards the independent life style, whereas there are many who deep rootedly wish to live with their parents.
