Here is the question card:

Immigration has a major impact on the society.

What are the main reasons of immigration?

To what consequences can it lead?

To write a band 9 essay you should first of all choose your arguments to answer the questions from the topic. You don't have to find some complicated ideas. Remember: you won't be judged upon the quality of your thoughts, you will be judged upon the quality of your writing. So even simple, but well-written arguments can often give you a band 9 writing .

  • Reasons why people immigrate
  • Results of immigration

Some of the possible arguments :

  • Reasons of immigration :
  • People want to live in a safe country
  • People search better jobs with higher salaries
  • People escape from wars/disasters

Introduction : simply rephrase the topic and say what this essay is about. When your essay question asks you about reasons/consequences or causes/solutions, you shouldn’t try to describe all that in your introduction. Instead, state that you’ll describe them later in your essay.

Body paragraphs :

  • paragraph 1: main reasons of immigration
  • paragraph 2: main consequences of immigration

Conclusion : sum up the ideas from body paragraphs and briefly give your opinion.

Band 9 essay sample (immigration)

Immigration has a significant impact on the contemporary society. Each year, more and more people from all over the world decide to leave their home countries and move to another place. This essay will examine the reasons and the consequences of immigration.

In my view, the main reason of immigration is a strong desire of better life quality and safe future. A lot of people from so-called Third World move to developed countries in search of better employment opportunities, and therefore, higher incomes. Moreover, living in a wealthy country implies living in a country with stable economy, so risks of losing their savings also lessen. For example, labour migration from Mexico to the USA is caused by these facts. Other reasons that force whole families to cross borders are wars and various cultural conflicts in their homeland. Many people migrate, seeking security and safe future for their children. For instance, most of the refugees who arrived in the European Union were escaping from wars.

However, sometimes immigration causes more problems than it solves, resulting in negative consequences for both immigrants and their countries of destination. First of all, most of the refugees can’t find jobs because of the lack of language skills and difficulties in adaptation. That’s why the countries have to run various refugee assistance programs to help those people. But disproportionate burden of maintaining the immigrants leads to tension in the society. Secondly, not all of the refugees receive proper asylum, food and medical care. So they are at risk even after crossing the border. Finally, even highly qualified specialists, who seek better employment, often don’t get what they are looking for.

In conclusion, I think that people immigrate to have better life prospects. However, life after immigration may not always meet people’s expectations. So it’s very important to consider all the possible outcomes and decide whether leaving your homeland is worth it.

Immigration Topic [IELTS Writing Task 2]

Posted by David S. Wills | Aug 6, 2018 | IELTS Tips , Writing | 0

Immigration Topic [IELTS Writing Task 2]

Today we’re going to look at a typical IELTS writing task 2 question about immigration. I will show you how to analyze the question , generate ideas and examples, structure your essay, and then finally write it. This question type is “discuss both views” but remember that the topic of immigration could be addressed in various ways for IELTS writing task 2.

Analyze the Question

Here is the question we will answer today:

Some people claim that immigrants should adopt the local culture when immigrating to a new country. While others think that they can establish a minority community instead. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

Let’s look first at some of the key words that can help us to understand what we should do:

  • immigrants – people who have moved to a new country
  • immigrating – the process of moving to a new country
  • adopt – to begin to use something
  • minority – meaning less than half; a small proportion of something

So what is this question about?

It is about whether or not immigrants should adopt the local culture or establish a minority community.

What do you need to do?

You need to (1) discuss both views and (2) give your opinion.

Choosing the Right Language

By now you have read the question and should be familiar with its meaning. You should have already noted down useful vocabulary from the question that you may want to use in your essay.

Remember: Don’t copy from the question. You can use some words or a short phrase, but don’t repeat the question in your essay.

Changing Word Form

statue of liberty

  • immigrant/immigrating -> immigration
  • culture -> cultural
  • adopt -> adoption

Think of Synonyms

It is also very important to have some synonyms handy to avoid repetition. It also makes your writing look much better to have a few carefully chosen synonyms for key words in the question.

  • immigrants -> new arrivals/ newcomers
  • local -> native/ regional
  • establish -> create/ set up

A word I think is really, really useful for the topic of immigration and culture is “assimilate” or “assimilation”. This means the same as “adopt the local culture”.

And Don’t Forget Antonyms

Everyone knows that you need to be good with synonyms to do well in IELTS, but it also helps to know a few antonyms, too. (Antonym means the opposite of synonym.)

  • minority -> majority
  • adopt -> reject
  • immigrating -> emigrating

By the way, it’s really useful to have a good dictionary or thesaurus for this sort of thing.

Generating Useful Ideas and Examples

When writing an IELTS writing task 2 essay, you need to be able to explore complex topics in an intelligent manner. As such, you need to be able to generate useful ideas and examples to use in your essay. It shows logical thought and will impress the examiner.

The first step is to fully understand the question. You cannot begin planning an answer until you fully comprehend the task. Go back to step one if you are unsure.

Next, you need to brainstorm . Brainstorming means thinking of lots of ideas. You can quickly think about or note down any ideas related to the question.

brainstorming ielts ideas

Here are my notes on the above question:

For – good for local culture (multiculturalism)
– makes life easier
– more job opportunities
– people will trust you more
– learn more about new country
Against – safer
– preserve traditions and language
– scary to mix
– fear of other people
– fosters strong sense of identity

If we look at the above list, we can clearly see some good ideas, and some bad ones. There are also some that would be easy to write about and some that would not be easy to write about.

When choosing ideas for your essay, ask yourself whether you (1) know enough about the subject and (2) have the language to describe it.

Pick just your very best ideas and then think of how to explain them. Can you cite examples, or give details? You must be able to elaborate in order to write a fully-developed paragraph.

Remember: It is better to describe one thing in detail than four things briefly. This is because it shows your ability to construct arguments and usual transitional phrases.

Here are some of my ideas from above, with the worst ones removed:

Developing Your Ideas

From the remaining two ideas in favour of adopting the local culture, I would probably choose to write about job opportunities .

But what could I say about job opportunities? What are some ideas relevant to immigration and culture?

  • I could explain that assimilation to the local culture would increase job opportunities.
  • This would then result in better quality of living for the immigrant.
  • It would also be beneficial to society and the economy.
  • I could then give a real or hypothetical example.

Learning to structure an IELTS writing task 2 essay is really easy. It have lots of articles on this topic here:

  • IELTS Writing Task 2 Essay Structures
  • Selecting Ideas and Structuring an Essay [IELTS Writing Task 2]
  • Structuring an IELTS Task 2 Essay
  • How to Structure a Paragraph
  • IELTS Writing: Should I Write 4 or 5 Paragraphs?

You should be able to master the basics of essay structure in under a day. Just follow these instructions:

  • Analyze the question
  • Choose 4 or 5 paragraph structure 
  • Generate several good ideas
  • Decide on the order of your ideas
  • Make notes on the content of each paragraph
  • Write the essay

In the above sections, I have outlined steps 1-3, and now I will show you my notes, which make up steps 3-4.

Introduction – paraphrase question essay outline Para #1 – in favour of assimilation main argument: job opportunity explain Para #2 – in favour of minority community main argument: preserve traditions and language explain Conclusion – state my position and review para 1-2

Here’s a useful video about structuring IELTS essays

Sample Answer

Here is my sample answer to the above question about immigration.

As the world population grows and people become increasingly mobile, people are divided over the extent to which immigrants should attempt to assimilate into the local culture. This essay will look at the main argument from each side of the debate, and then suggest that a compromise is needed, wherein immigrants both assimilate and form a strong community. The people who argue in favour of immigrants assimilating into the local culture often point out that it increases the number of job opportunities available to the newcomers. Immigrants often find it difficult to find a job when they move to a new country, but by becoming part of the wider community, they open themselves to more possibilities. The immigrant will be able to improve his quality of life, as well as to contribute to the economy, so there are clear benefits from both the perspective of the immigrant and the local society. On the other hand, the people who think immigrants should form minority communities point to the preservation of cultural traditions and language. They believe that adopting the local culture would cause a loss of the immigrants’ original language and culture. Indeed, this is something that has happened all around the world, and it is not hard to find a Little Italy or Chinatown far from Italy or China. Therefore, it makes sense that immigrants form tight-knit communities in their new countries. In conclusion, it is clear that a balance needs to be sought between these two approaches to immigration, and so neither is entirely correct. Without assimilating into the local culture, immigrants may find it difficult to get ahead in life, but if they become completely immersed in the new culture, they might forget their roots and their language may disappear.

A Final Note

If you have followed my instructions above, you should have a pretty good essay!

Remember to leave a few minutes for editing at the end. Here’s a good checklist:

  • Have I spelled all the words correctly?
  • Is my grammar correct?
  • Did I stray off-topic in any paragraph?
  • Is my position clear from beginning to end?
  • Did I completely answer the question?

Writing an Immigration Essay: 75 Essay Topic Ideas

immigration ielts essay topic

The whole world watches the immigration drama that occurs in the USA. Separated families, tears, anger, escalation of antimigration attitudes in society—this all are consequences of immigration regulations.

Writing an essay on immigration may seem difficult enough. However, the IvyPanda team is here to help you. Just keep reading and you’ll find out simple tips to ace your assignment.

Immigration Essay: Research the Problem

Before you start drafting your essay outline, you should understand what is immigration, its causes, forms, and develop your opinion.

What is immigration? This is the process of acquiring permanent residence in a foreign country. And, accordingly, an immigrant is a person who undergoes this process.

Why do people decide to immigrate?

Actually, every person has their own reason. But we gathered most common immigration causes below:

  • Economics. Most people decide to move to other country when they are not satisfied with conditions in their homeland: lack of jobs, low salaries, high taxes, corruption. All of these make a person seek a better life.
  • Politics . In some countries, government bans certain parts of population from occupying certain positions, gaining education they want, etc. For example, lists professions and occupations that are prohibited for woman.

  • Wars. Even though we’re living in the 21st century, wars still occur. And the desire to save immigrants’ families, and escape from death leads to increasing number of refugees.
  • Human right and freedom. We all want to live in a better place with our loved ones, being able to choose a career, and religion, regardless of our social or marital status. However, some countries ban same-sex marriage, some religions and religious trends other than the dominant ones. There are also a lot of countries where there is no freedom of speech. Imagine that even a short post in your social media account may lead to a prison.
  • Personal causes. It may be a desire to take the career to the next level, a realisation of childhood dream to live in a certain place, to acquire education in a certain institution or country, etc.

Immigration can be legal and illegal. Legal immigration means that the person is acquiring the residential status in accordance to government regulations. On the other side are immigrants who decide to try and flee to foreign countries illegally .

Is it bad? You have conduct a thorough research and form your opinion.

If you’re doing your research for illegal immigration essay, you should also investigate effects of it. Mostly, it negative impacts on economics. Illegal immigrants take any job that provides an income to support their families. Employers use this labor force without paying any taxes, providing insurance and often pay less than minimum wage. This leads to legal job cuts and lower budget revenues. And, as a result, cuts in social, education, public health, and other important programs occur.

Among other effects, we can name the rise of terrorist and criminal activities. You can explore this topic when writing the immigration essay or paper on terrorism.

Relatively easy way of illegal immigration leads to reduced motivation for legal immigration. It’s cheaper and easier.

If you’re writing the overpopulation essay, you can mention that overpopulation can be both cause and effect. The lack of access to fresh water, poverty, and pollution makes people seek for the better life somewhere else. And, as a consequence, immigration explosions provoke overpopulation, cut of legal jobs, increased pollution in the destination country.

Immigration Essay: Stick to the Structure

Now, let’s get back to the writing. First of all, brainstorm some ideas of your immigration or overpopulation essay. Write them down and then pick the topic that appeals to you the most. Don’t forget to check if there are enough sources for your paper. There are plenty of free essays and examples to help you with all of that.

The next step is to create an essay outline. A typical essay structure consists of introduction, body paragraphs, and conclusion. Even if you need to write a five-paragraph essay, you must include these elements.

First things first, let’s start with the essay introduction. In the intro of any type of essays, you must give a hook to your readers and provide an essay thesis. Engage your readers with a couple of suggestions about the problems of immigrants that you’ve researched.

As for the essay body, its contents may vary depending on the type of assignment. In the argumentative or persuasive essay, you must put several arguments supporting your point of view. In the for and against essay, provide a counterargument after each argument. If you’re writing an opinion essay, express your thoughts and don’t forget to keep a logical flow. Otherwise, your readers will be bored and quickly lose their attention.

As well as the introduction, a conclusion is also a mandatory element. In this part, you must restate thesis and ideas, presented in a body without repeating it. Write it in other words.

IELTS Essay Topics

immigration ielts essay topic

Most people doing IELTS Writing Task 2 get stressed out about which IELTS essay topics they will face. They worry about getting an unfamiliar topic and not having any good ideas or enough vocabulary to complete the task.

This article will help you by giving you the most common IELTS essay topics  and showing you how to use these to get higher scores.

Why is it important to know the IELTS essay topics?

If you are familiar with the most common topics you will have a huge advantage because you will be better at two of the most important things:

  • Thinking of relevant ideas

Idea Generation

Of all the things people worry about when doing Task 2 , not having enough ideas to complete the essay is normally top of the list. However, you should remember that IELTS is not a test of your knowledge, it is a test of your English. The examiners do not expect you to be an expert on the essay topic, they just want you to show that you can write clearly and persuasively in English.

You should also realise that IELTS is a global exam and when the writers of the exam are making the questions, their main concern is writing questions that can be understood by nearly everyone in the world. For example, common IELTS essay topics are education, crime and health. Everyone in the world has an opinion on these everyday topics and you need to understand that the examiners are not looking for the ‘best’ ideas, they are just looking for relevant ideas.

Let’s look at an example question on the topic of international aid:

Rich countries should help poorer countries when they suffer natural disasters. Do you agree?

You don’t have to think of the ‘best’ ideas, you just have to think of two ideas that are relevant to this question. Reasons why rich countries should help are:

  • It is the morally correct thing to do.
  • They have legal obligations under international law.
  • Not helping will result in many deaths and suffering.
  • They have more than enough money to do this.
  • It is in their interests to do so for the peace and security of the world.
  • Some of their own people might be involved in the disaster.
  • Every rich country has a fund for disaster relief within their budget.
  • They might suffer a disaster one day too and need help from the international community.

You obviously do not need to think of this many ideas and some of the ideas are better than others, but the point I am trying to make is that there are lots of ‘relevant’ ideas you could think of.

Despite this, you will obviously be more confident and be able to think of ideas more quickly if you are familiar with the common topics. Below I will show you how you can use the common IELTS essay topics to learn about the general topics and improve your English at the same time.

25% of your marks come from vocabulary and this is directly linked to IELTS essay topics. One of the main ways the examiner will judge your vocabulary is something called ‘topic-specific vocabulary’. The idea is that someone with a wide-ranging vocabulary should be able to talk about any of the common essay topics easily using words that are specific to that topic.

For example, if the question was the same as above, you would be expected to use words like ‘international aid’, ‘wealthy’, ‘developed’, ‘developing’, ‘earthquake’, ‘hurricane’, ‘relief fund’, ‘obligation’, ‘moral’ etc. These are words that you use specifically to talk about the essay topic. You don’t have to use these words, but they would help.

Therefore, the more familiar you are with the topic, the more ‘topic-specific’ vocabulary you will know and the higher your score will be. Knowing the most common IELTS essay topics allows you to focus on the most important vocabulary . Below I will show you the most common topics and some of the more important words you should know.

Are IELTS essay topics predictable?

Yes and no. You will obviously not be able to predict the exact topic that will come up. There are just too many to do this and it would be a very easy test if you knew what the exact topic was going to be.

However, there are between 10 common topics that come up more than others. You should focus on these first, especially if you don’t have much time before the test.

The most common IELTS essay topics are:

  • Environment
  • International Development
  • Globalisation
  • Public Transport
  • Criminal Justice
  • Youth Crime
  • Government Spending
  • Traditional Culture

I think that technology, health, education and the environment are the most important topics and will feature regularly in the future.

For more information on the most common topics, please visit my most common topics page .

How can I use the most common topics?

There are two main ways you can use the most common IELTS essay topics to your advantage. The first is to familiarise yourself with them while practising and improving your English and the second is to focus on topic-specific vocabulary.

Common Topic Familiarisation

If you are going to do well in the IELTS test you need to be using and exposing yourself to English every day. You should be reading, listening, writing and speaking in English as much as possible. You should make sure that if you are listening to or reading something in English you do it within the common topics. For example, you could listen to a podcast on technology one day and then read a newspaper report about education or health the next day. Most of the questions are on current topics, therefore staying up to date with what is happening in the world will really help you think of ideas.

For example, three of the biggest news stories of 2015 were the refugee crisis, terrorism and internet privacy issues. These topics have, unsurprisingly, already appeared on the IELTS writing paper this year.

Please check out my 25 online language learning tools for lots of ways you can study within the common topics at home for free.

If you really want to get advanced, you could also try making up your own questions based on the news of the day and then give these questions to a study partner. This is something that I do with my classes. They go to a popular news site like the BBC and write a Task 2 question based on one of the stories they were reading about and then they give it to a classmate who does the essay for homework.

Vocabulary – Notebook

There are two things you can do here: start a vocabulary notebook and focus on key topic-specific vocabulary.

As mentioned above, you should be listening to and reading English as much as possible before your test. This will not only improve your listening and reading skills but will, more importantly, expand your vocabulary.

When you are reading or listening you will always notice words that you don’t know. Most students simply look these up immediately in the dictionary and then forget about them. I think this is a total waste of time because the words do not stay in your head and you never use them again. A much better thing to do is to start a vocabulary notebook. This is the single most effective way to improve your vocabulary. Follow the steps below:

  • Buy a notebook that you will only use for vocabulary.
  • When you see or hear a new word try to guess the meaning from the context of the sentence or paragraph. This step is very important because it is an essential skill to develop and will help you remember the words.
  • Check the meaning after you have guessed it in the dictionary.
  • Note the new word and the definition in your vocabulary notebook.
  • Pronunciation
  • Review the list of words and test yourself on these words after one week, two weeks, one month and two months. Soon you will have expanded your vocabulary dramatically.

You can also do this by using apps like Memrise  to record and review vocabulary.

Vocabulary- Topic Specific Words

As mentioned above, one of the ways in which the examiner judges your vocabulary is how many topic-specific words you use. Learning these words before the exam for the most common essay topics should help you get a higher vocabulary score.

However, one of the worst things you could do is simply learn a list of words and insert them into your essay. This is not how good vocabulary works and the examiners are trained to spot this. Your focus should always be on accuracy i.e. using words correctly. Because of this I advise my students to use the 100% rule.

You should never use any word or phrase in IELTS essays if you are not 100% sure about it. By 100% I mean that you are sure about its:

  • Collocations

If you are not 100% sure about the things above, then do not use it. If you do, you will probably get it wrong and this will lower your band score.

Indigenous cultures and languages refer to the traditional practices, belief systems, and modes of expression of ethnic groups native to a particular region or country.
Protecting indigenous cultures and languages helps preserve unique identities, traditional knowledge, and cultural diversity, which are valuable aspects of human heritage and can contribute to our understanding of history, societies, and the environment.
Challenges include globalization, urbanization, lack of resources, and a shift towards more dominant cultures and languages, which can lead to the erosion of indigenous practices and languages over time.
Governments can implement policies to support the use and teaching of indigenous languages, provide funding for cultural preservation efforts, and promote awareness and appreciation of indigenous cultures through education and media.
Potential drawbacks include the allocation of limited resources towards this effort at the expense of other priorities, the potential for cultural stagnation or resistance to cultural evolution, and the risk of creating divisions or conflicts within diverse societies.

IELTS Daily Essay Topic: Most teenagers today own a smartphone.

Brainstorming Ideas

Refer to the following brainstorming ideas to get a better understanding of the answer.

  • Advantages of Smartphones:
  • A powerful tool for education.
  • It helps teenagers stay connected with their peers and teachers.
  • Helps in developing digital literacy skills.
  • Provides people with a platform for creative expression.

2. Disadvantages of Smartphones:

  • Over-reliance on smartphones.
  • Spending excessive time on social media or playing games.
  • Constant internet exposure can subject teenagers to inappropriate content and cyberbullying.
  • It causes physical health issues and impacts their social skills and relationships with others.

Q. Most teenagers today own a smartphone. Provide your opinion to discuss the advantages and disadvantages.

Ans . In the contemporary world, it is an undeniable fact that most teenagers possess smartphones. This phenomenon has both merits and demerits that are worth discussing.

On a positive note, smartphones serve as a powerful tool for education. They provide access to a wide array of information and educational resources. For instance, numerous educational applications and websites are available at their fingertips, which can significantly improve their learning process. Moreover, smartphones enable teenagers to stay connected with their peers and teachers, facilitating collaborative learning and instant communication. Additionally, smartphones can help in developing digital literacy skills, which are essential in today’s technology-driven world. It also provides people with a platform for creative expression, allowing teenagers to explore and share their interests through photography, blogging and other forms of digital media.

However, the detrimental impacts of smartphones on teenagers cannot be overlooked. Teenagers can become overly dependent on smartphones, spending excessive time on social media or playing games, leading to a decline in academic performance. Furthermore, constant internet exposure can subject teenagers to inappropriate content and cyberbullying, threatening their mental health. Excessive screen time can also cause physical health issues like eye strain and poor posture. Additionally, constant connectivity can interfere with face-to-face social interactions, potentially impacting their social skills and relationships.

To conclude, while smartphones can be beneficial for teenagers in terms of educational purposes and connectivity, it is crucial to address the potential drawbacks.  It is the responsibility of parents and educators to guide teenagers on the appropriate use of smartphones, ensuring a balance between digital engagement and other aspects of life. 

Paraphrased Statement: In the contemporary world, it is an undeniable fact that most teenagers possess smartphones.

Thesis Statement: This phenomenon has both merits and demerits that are worth discussing.

Body Paragraph 1-Topic Sentences: On a positive note, smartphones serve as a powerful tool for education. They provide access to a wide array of information and educational resources. For instance, numerous educational applications and websites are available at their fingertips, which can significantly improve their learning process.

Body Paragraph 1- Supporting Reasons and Explanations: Moreover, smartphones enable teenagers to stay connected with their peers and teachers, facilitating collaborative learning and instant communication. Additionally, smartphones can help in developing digital literacy skills, which are essential in today’s technology-driven world. It also provides people with a platform for creative expression, allowing teenagers to explore and share their interests through photography, blogging and other forms of digital media.

Body Paragraph 2- Topic sentence: However, the detrimental impacts of smartphones on teenagers cannot be overlooked. Teenagers can become overly dependent on smartphones, spending excessive time on social media or playing games, leading to a decline in academic performance.

Body paragraph 2- Supporting Reasons and Explanations: Furthermore, constant internet exposure can subject teenagers to inappropriate content and cyberbullying, threatening their mental health. Excessive screen time can also cause physical health issues like eye strain and poor posture. Additionally, constant connectivity can interfere with face-to-face social interactions, potentially impacting their social skills and relationships. Conclusion: To conclude, while smartphones can be beneficial for teenagers in terms of educational purposes and connectivity, it is crucial to address the potential drawbacks.  It is the responsibility of parents and educators to guide teenagers on the appropriate use of smartphones, ensuring a balance between digital engagement and other aspects of life.

Band 7 Sample Answer for Writing Task 2 Question – Mobile Phones and the Internet Could Have Many Benefits for Old People

People all throughout the world now use mobile phones and the internet on a daily basis. Still, older people don’t use these amenities very often. This essay will explore how cell phones and the internet can help older individuals meet their needs without travel, and how user-friendly phones and apps can motivate their usage.

First of all, for elderly individuals, traveling long distances can be stressful. In such scenarios, they can still maintain contact with their loved ones using cell phones and the internet without the hassles of traveling. Furthermore, they can use these technological tools to reserve tickets or order food, avoiding long waits in queues. Also, using these resources, the older generation can meet their everyday needs like getting news updates, reading books, transferring money, buying medicines, etc., which is a great plus point.

To encourage older individuals to use cellphones and the world wide web, companies should focus on creating user-friendly mobile apps or online applications. For example, they can create smartphones with large keypads and online applications that offer information in the native tongue or in audio format. Seniors will appreciate user-friendly products that they can easily operate. Thus, emphasizing the creation of items that are simple to understand will motivate these individuals to make use of them on a daily basis.

In conclusion, the usage of this technology will facilitate communication for the elderly as well as make their tasks easy. Therefore, organizations should try to create goods that the older generation can use easily.

Band 8 Sample Answer for Writing Task 2 Question – Mobile Phones and the Internet Could Have Many Benefits for Old People

There is no doubt that, in this day of widespread technology, cell phones and the Internet may improve people’s lives, particularly those of the elderly. However, within this age group, technology use is thought to be the least. This essay will examine a number of potential benefits that older adults may derive from utilizing mobile phones and the Internet, before offering some recommendations for ways to convince older adults to embrace technology.

There is no denying that using a cell phone and the Internet is beneficial for elderly individuals for many reasons. First and foremost, high-tech devices enable instantaneous communication across geographic borders, which is far more convenient than in the past when handwritten letters were common. Additionally, mobile phones with Internet connections facilitate learning due to the abundance of free online information available. As a result, people do not have to spend a lot of money on buying books and study materials.

The government and family members can take a number of steps to encourage older people to engage with cell phones and the Internet. In relation to the first, more public initiatives advocating the use of technology should be launched. The older population is more likely to appreciate new technology if they are knowledgeable about its benefits. Regarding the latter, younger family members should advise and assist the elder members with any problems or concerns resulting from their use of technology, thereby encouraging the older members to continue using it.

In summary, older people have benefited from mobile phones and the Internet in terms of communication and education. The number of older people using technology can be increased not only by government institutions but also by members of the younger generation.

Word Count – 282

  • Instantaneous

Example:  The instantaneous reply from the participant was expected.

Meaning:  the ability to take action and make decisions independently, often with the aim of solving problems or achieving goals

Example:  The committee took an initiative to mend the benches in the park.

Meaning:  a plentiful or copious quantity of something, often implying an excess or surplus

Example:  There is an abundance of food after the harvest this year.

Band 9 Sample Answer for Writing Task 2 Question – Mobile Phones and the Internet Could Have Many Benefits for Old People

Unlock Band 9 Answer

In recent years, mobile phones and the world wide web have become a significant part of human life, including elderly people. However, due to the lack of knowledge and understanding, they are unable to reap the benefits of these innovative tools. This essay will explore the advantages of cell phones and the internet for old people as well as list some ways to make them an important part of the lives of the senior people.

First and foremost, mobile phones make it possible to stay in touch with loved ones and medical professionals. This is especially helpful for senior citizens who have limited mobility or who live far away from family members. For example, I have daily contact with my grandparents on video calls as we live in different parts of the country. Moreover, the abundance of knowledge and tools, such as health-related information, current events updates, money transfer methods and online courses for learning new skills, enhances older persons’ lives. For instance, my grandfather uses gardening tutorials and forums to increase his level of gardening knowledge.

In order to encourage older people to embrace technology, the most vital factor is encouragement and support of family members. Young members of the family can help them to learn how to handle these technological resources and motivate them to use them carefully. Additionally, campaigns for public awareness should be started, together with customized courses and tutorials, to encourage older persons to adopt technology. Furthermore, senior technology classes can be offered by community centers, with practical advice and assistance.

To sum up, senior citizens can greatly benefit from mobile phones and the Internet, which provides them with access to a multitude of information and improved communication. Therefore, they should be encouraged to utilize technology to enhance their lives and foster social inclusion through focused programmes and familial support.

Word Count – 305

Band 9 Vocabulary 

Meaning:  to harvest or gather a crop, or to obtain a reward or benefit as a consequence of one’s actions or efforts

Example:  Everyone should reap the benefits of their hard work.

Meaning:  the ability to move or be moved freely and easily

Example:  After the terrible accident, he lost his mobility.

Meaning:  a period of instruction or guidance, typically one-to-one or small group, aimed at teaching a specific subject or skill

Example:  Nowadays there are lots of tutorials on the internet to learn any skill.

Meaning:  a public meeting or assembly for open discussion and debate, or it can also refer to an online platform where users can discuss various topics, share ideas, and ask questions

Example:  The gamers had a thorough discussion on the forum.
