Great to have you back!

Today we start with the "Writing Task 2". This is the section that most IELTS candidates struggle the most with. It is also the one that needs the most practice to improve. So make sure that you go over today's lesson multiple times until you understand every single word of it.

Lets get started without any further delay.

In IELTS Writing Task 2,

you are given brief details of an opinion, an argument or a problem,

and have to produce an extended piece of discursive writing (an essay) in response.

You need to write at least 250 words and

should spend about 40 minutes on this task.


While other IELTS courses and websites give you model answers for a 100 different topics, this is not the best way to prepare for Writing Task 2.

Firstly, you will never be able to memorise essays for all possible topics and secondly if you get a new topic that you have never seen before you will not know how to craft your response.

So let's look at a step by step process on how to write a great writing task 2 essay every time ... no matter what the topic.

    You were supposed to receive a friend at the airport. But, for some reasons you are unable to do so. Write a letter to your friend. In your letter
    – explain why you can’t come,
    – guide them regarding other options to get to your home,
    – describe the plans/visits you made to show them around when your friend arrives.

    Dear Honey,

    Can u evaluate plzzzzzzz

    Some people prefer to travel around town by car, while others prefer public transit such as bus, train, or subway.
    Discuss both these positions and give your own opinion.

    There are abundant of means of transport,which are use by individuals for traveling. Segment of society use their private vehicles for traveling. However, opponents first priority is public transportation. In this essay i will discuss both veiw points and give my opinion in conclusion.

    To initiate with benifits of using private vehicles. Firstly, private cars are luxury because companies provides ample of features to reduce the burden of traveling.people can easily travel from one place to that place, which is far away from them. This is due to comfortable seats and sound system in cars.secondly, personal cars reduce the time of traveling. Individual can run their car fast in emergency because escalator is in hands of individual.evantually, there are plathora of reasons why individual choose private transport to travel around the city.

    On the other hand, some people gives their preference to public transport because it is cheapest mode of transport. Individual can travel with the low cost as compare to private cars. In addition, environment is also protected by public transport.many people can travel in one time for instance, if more people travel in the busses then it will decrease the consumption of fuel in private vehicles and less gases are emitted from them. Therefor, traveling with public transport have many advantages to people that’s why they choose

    To recapitulate, although own cars helps to save time, it adversely cause to environment.hence, i percieve that government should encourage individual to travel with public transport bay reduceing the cost of tickets
