writing task 1 : bar chart about the land damages caused by 3 factors in 5 regions
writing task 2 : Schools should be responsible to teach formal studies, additionally good behaviour, also. Do you agree or disagree?
Atul, in the writing TASK 1: instead of saying the exact data I had mentioned words like ” exactly, around , about just under, one quarter” do you think these terminologies help to increase my coherence mark?
In the introduction I paraphrased the first sentence and I stated my position. I have disagreed with the statement saying that I believe teacher’s duty should be only teaching formal studies while parents ought to teach to their children good manners.
In my second paragraph I wrote that teachers have to complete a wide syllabus within the academic year and they do not have much time to spend teaching good manners as well. I made an example of primary schools in Italy and the fact Italian students need to study 10 subjects which is quite tough. Since teachers have the responsibility to prepare students for the exams they should focus only on the academic perspective because if pupils do not pass and the fail rate is high teachers would receive a lot of complaints and consequently the school’ reputation is ruined.
In the third paragraph I wrote that each individual has different personalities, some pupils are more difficult to manage compared to others therefore if teachers have to each individual how to behave appropriately all the time is up. It would be more appropriate that parents teach good behaviour .
I concluded that teachers should teach only academic subject and not good behaviour due to time constraints.
Do you think these arguments are strong enough ? what do you think of the structure?
I am very nervous of my score and I am not sure that I have written relevant ideas.
