Writing at a glance

First of all, the Writing test is different for Academic and General training Module of IELTS. I am going to talk here about the General training Writing test.

It actually has 2 sub-tasks. The first one is to write a letter according to a scenario you will receive, using not less than 150 words. The second task is to write an Essay on a given topic, present and justify an opinion or give a solution to a problem, using not less than 250 words.

Nothing to worry about here! Once you’ll start using a certain structure which I’ll explain later on for the letter and the essay in addition to your imagination, it is a piece of cake. This task requires a bit of training, but after you write a few essays and letters you will be well-prepared for it and you will feel confident.

    Hey Soaibd,
    I hope you are doing well. This is an essay and the way I used to write it. I hope you find it well.

    Some people think that hard working and determination are the key factors for being successful in the life, other people feel that other factors are important. Discuss both sides, what is your opinion?

    For every single question, you must know three different factors,
    1. What type is the given question?
    2. Why the given opinion or fact is true?
    3. How the given opinion or fact is true?

    Answering these questions can help you to get the required brain storm to manage to write a reasonable answer to every writing task 2 question.

    Considering the question which you wrote, we can answer those questions like this:
    1. Discussion
    Which means you will have 4 paragraphs:

    body paragraph 1,
    body paragraph 2,
    and conclusion.

    About first view:
    2. Hard working and determination can teach people how to get better results and to be successful.
    3. They make you experience and understand matters much more better which may make you ready for life experiences.
    Considering the second view:
    2.Learning specific methods can contribute people to be more successful in their life experience like cooking.
    3. Getting some courses like accounting teach people to be a professional accountant which means learning accounting can be considered a best method in order to be a great accountant.

    ✅ Let’s look at the complete structure:

    Background + paraphrased question + your opinion

    Nowadays, people, considering hard working and determination with some other factors, can be strongly successful. Some people assume that hard trying and understanding are two major points to have a successful life, whilst others claim that other factors are crucial. I personally, believe that although hard working and determination are two key futures for being successful in the life, other factors also affect positively people’s life.

    Body paragraph 1, support the first point of view:

    Being successful in the life is impossible unless working hard and proper determination. Spending adequate time on improving life skills including trying hard and understanding various matters can contribute people to find the best way to have a great life full of successes. Experiencing and understanding can be two results of working hard and determination. Consequently, learning special abilities as professions also can be next results. For instance, professional chefs mostly have started their career with some simple cooking and trying them for many times adding some various ingredients to find the best tastes. Due to that fact, It is evident that working hard can result relating successes.

    Body paragraph 2, support second view:

    On the other hand, to be successful is achievable with other key factors such as learning specific abilities by taking some courses. For example, professional chefs, having delicious cuisine, can be tough by other famous cooks. Learning these kind of life skills contributes people to have at least a profession so as to do their occupation leading them to successes.
    Therefore, other factors can have so many advantages contributing people to be useful for their society. It is obvious that being successful can be reached by special factors like tuition and education.

    Conclusion paragraph:

    In conclusion, I personally, assume that hard working and determination are two key factors for living successfully
    ,whereas there also are other factors having considerable effects on it.
