For IELTS Writing Task 2, keep your introduction short and simple. Don't waste time writing a long introduction; the main body paragraphs are more important.
A good IELTS Writing introduction needs only 2 things:
- A sentence that introduces the topic
- A sentence that gives a short, general answer to the question
Here is an example of an IELTS Task 2 question:
As computers are being used more and more in education, there will soon be no role for the teacher in the classroom. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Here is my introduction:
It is true that computers have become an essential tool for teachers and students in all areas of education. However, while computers are extremely useful, I do not agree with the idea that they could soon replace teachers completely.
- In the first sentence I introduce the topic of computers in education.
- In the second sentence I answer the question and make my opinion clear. Don't wait until the conclusion to give your opinion.
Remember, do a simple introduction, then you can focus on the main paragraphs.
