Welcome to IELTS-Blog.com, Manpreet!
Thanks a lot 😊
I’m glad this helps!
Can anyone help me with some ideas about this essay as I can only come with one idea, and it is not enough for an essay. It is a really difficult and complex one.
Hi Mina, there are so many things you could talk about. If you like listening to music while studying, you can talk about how music can help you focus, concentrate or relax during an intense academic task. Music can help you feel motivated, it improves memory and makes the process of studying much more enjoyable. If you need silence to do your work, then you can explain how music disrupts your thinking processes and you lose your train of thought. Does this help?
