Best IELTS Writing Tasks, 29 May
Academic Writing Task 1:-
The graphs below show the numbers of male and female workers in 1975 and 1995 in several employment sectors of the republic of Freedonia.
Write a report for a university teacher describing the information shown.
The two decades between 1975 and 1995 brought significant changes in the representation of women in Freedonia’s work force, according to the graphs.
In 1975, for example, some 300 000 men and 250 000 women worked in the communications sector. Twenty years later, though the number of men remained unchanged, the number of women rose to 550 000.
A similar situation was seen in the wholesale and retail trade sector, where the number of women rose from about 550 000 in 1975 to almost 800 000 two decades later. The number of men in this sector remained stable over the period, at around 700 000.
Women also made gains in both the finance/banking industries and in the defence-related public sector. Whereas some 125 000 women worked in finance and banking institutions in 1975, the number increased to 450 000 by 1995. The number of men grew only marginally from 425 000 to 480 000 over the same period. In defence, the number of men declined from 225 000 to 200 000, while the number of women rose from 25 000 to over 100 000.
Two sectors that retained stable employment numbers for both men and women were manufacturing, which had about 300 000 women and 650 000 men in both surveyed years, and the public sector (non-defence), which employed 650 000 women and 850 000 men.
Thus, women appear to have made gains in the Freedonian work force but not at the expense of men.
General Writing Task 1:-
You celebrated your birthday with some friends last week in a restaurant. It was a great success and you and your friends enjoyed the evening very much.
Write a letter to the restaurant to thank them. Mention the food, service and the atmosphere. Also suggest any improvements to make things better.
Last week on Saturday night some friends and I had dinner in your restaurant to celebrate my birthday. I am writing to thank you for the great evening that we had.
All my friends remarked afterwards on the standard of the food and service that we received. All the food was very tasty and well presented. Our waiter, whose name was James, was fast and friendly and put with well with our bad jokes! The restaurant itself was warm and friendly and the atmosphere showed that all the diners there were enjoying their evening.
I would like though to suggest one improvement. One of my friends is a vegetarian and he felt that the choice for vegetarians was little small. If you could develop that, it would be a great advantage to your restaurant.
Once again I would like to thank you for my highly enjoyable birthday dinner.
Writing Task 2 (AC+GT):-
The society would benefit from a ban on all forms of advertising because it serves no useful purpose, and can even be damaging. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.
Advertising is a sign of our times; it is everywhere, from my public to my private life, from SMS messages on my phone to the back of toilet doors, to TV screens in the supermarkets, on the streets and in elevators. But does it ever serve a purpose other than to tell me how pitiful my life is without a certain product?
Advertising might be like medicine; not nice but necessary from time to time. When we want to buy a new computer or go on a holiday, some of us will do two things: do some online research and then check out the best deals online or in the papers. This works for us; we get the right information at the right time. And we are grateful.
On another day, we may be strolling in the street with our friends enjoying the sunshine, but then a large TV screen jumps into life telling us the merits of a certain shampoo, or a certain car model. This is intrusive, distracting and perhaps even dangerous as it makes vision in the street more difficult.
But advertising pays for things that I enjoy; it pays for the TV programmes I watch, the TV screens that help me pass the time on the public transport system, and subsidises the newspapers I read online.
It, however, does seem that sometimes there is too much, that it is too pervasive and too intrusive. But to completely eliminate it from our everyday life would be an unwise decision. We have to live with it, but maybe some respect for the consumers might be nice.

– Where is the place
– How often you go there
– When you generally go
– Why you go there for walks
I love walking and there are many places in my hometown where we can go for walks. Here I would like to talk about a part where I go very often for morning or evening walk. The name of the parks is Virender Park. It is near my home. It is named after VirenderDeaol, brother of famous film star Dhamender Deaol. This is most attractive and well-maintained park of my hometown. It is a big garden having one main gate and two side gates. It has a long jogging track along the circumference of the garden. This offers maximum length to those who want to walk or jog. This park is full of activity in the mornings and in the evenings. People of all age groups frequent this. A number of octogenarians, nonagenarians and centenarians of my hometown can be seen here. There is an NGO in my hometown, which offers free yoga training to people in the morning and evening. So people come to this park with their yoga-mate and do yoga here. Sometimes I also do yoga with them. On one side there are swings and seesaws of children. It is so much fun to see little children take turns on the swings. There are many trees in the park. There are also benches for people to sit and relax. People go there to feel closeness with nature and relax after a hectic days work. It is a perfect park but I feel if a few more lights were put up it would be letter. Some dustbins should also be put up in the corners. Parks can be called the lungs of the community. As it is nowadays we are living in concrete jungles. So parks are places to enjoy the greenery of nature. They are also meeting places for people of the neighborhood. I meet most people of my neighborhood there. In this way parks also increase the community spirit among people.

I think that everyone should walk, as it beneficial for both the young and the old people alike. It has many health benefits for all age groups. It is the easiest form of exercise and doesn’t need any special equipment. We only need comfortable clothes and good walking shoes.
Did you like walking when you were a child?
Yes, I loved to walk when I was a child. My mother used to take me to a park near out home and I used to play and walk there. Since then I have developed a habit of walking everyday.
