Speaking topis for may

@Asia Man

Hi, I checked website you recommended, where I was supposed to find black prediction book but I couldnt find it. Can you pls post the link?

thanks a lot

i was done with my speaking test yesterday. some of the questions I remembered that the examiner asked were about tourism and travelling:
Part 2
where is the place that you want to go back again? Describe the place? why do you want to go back? what are the things you want to experience again on that place?

Part 3
Some people say that it was disappointing already when you go back for the 2nd time around on the place that you've been to. do you agree with that?

Is it only right that you explore first your country before going to or visit another country?

Is it important that you should know first the culture of the country you will visit?

that's all I remember

@joy what country are you from?

hello simon, kindly assses this essay. i have academic ielts on 30th may , i need 6.5 in each component.

Some people believe that unpaid community service should be a compulsory part of high school programs (for example working for a charity, improving the neighborhood or teaching sports to younger children).

To what extent do you agree or disagree?
With growth in technology, modern world is ignoring the importance of human relations. In order to teach trend of working together, unpaid community service has been included as compulsory part of high school programs. It is agreed that because of these community services, younger children can learn fruitful lesson of charity, neighborhood and unity. This essay will discuss about free community service aiding the betterment of society followed by relevant examples and conclusion.
Firstly, by going through service without any personal interest will create a kind helping nature in younger children. Being part of society, they will start feeling responsibility to serve neighbors. For example, in a school, if a poor student cannot afford to pay his fees and his all class fellows unite under a platform for his assistance. Likewise, many orphanages and community centers help needy people. This gives feeling of inspiration to become better human being.
Moreover, we come across several free coaching schools and vocational centers when free training is provided. In schools, younger children should be advised to visit such places and work voluntarily to assist them. Be doing this, they will be defeating many social crimes and drugs abuses that breed in the lack of social support. People start feeling to be accompanied and social discriminations as well as class system will be facing mouth in the dust.
In conclusion, helping others always sounds like helping ourselves. Because of unpaid community services, younger children can build up themselves a better citizen in future. So it is strongly agreed that children should be advised to take active part in such extra-curricular activities without personal benefits.

Simon - I am dropping by to THANK YOU for your free IELTS lessons. I only discovered this a couple of weeks prior to my test date last May 9th (Acad Module) and have read every single lesson you posted since day 1. [My total prep time was only 1 month.] I received my TRF a few days ago and my overall band score is 7.5 (R:85, L:8, S:7, W:7). Quite disappointed with my Speaking band score but I knew I did not do well in Speaking part 2 (haha). Nonetheless, I got 7 in Writing and this is due to all the helpful writing lessons that you have in this website. Please continue to help students and professionals achieve their IELTS band scores. More power to you!

Lectures were used as best way of teaching so many students. With growth in advanced technology in modern world, there is no justification of this way of teaching? To what extent do u agree or disagree?

Manual way of teaching has always been preferred from ancient time. Modern technology has influenced human lifestyle in many ways with significantly in the field of education. Some are of opinion that technology has replaced the older way of teaching as students can get more benefit thru latest method. But I disagree with this concept. This essay will highlight the importance of lectures in the teaching of many students followed by relevant examples and conclusion.
Students always seek for the better way of guidance in their career. They have been acquiring handsome knowledge of their field from lectures from very beginning. Lectures from a human can be more beneficial than any type of machine. For example, in classroom, teacher can teach students with more flexibility that a computer can never do. A class contains many brains of different capabilities; he can pass his knowledge according to the ability of student to get that. So, lectures can be more beneficial than online materials.
One can be more disciplined and obedient when he will face live human in front of him. For instance, with presence of a teacher, students cannot make fool in around the class. In contrast to this, there is totally a different story in technology; it cannot bind students in disciplined manner. They will not pay required attention to a machine.
Lectures delivered manually can be more efficient for appropriate understanding. Firstly, students can get answers of their questions of any level. If a low grading student asks any question he can get response from a teacher while computer delivers a uniform response. Secondly, by manually attending lectures, students feel the sense of competition among themselves and everyone tries his best to be cleverer and its opposite in online courses as there is no any social interaction among fellows.
In conclusion, technology, no doubt has played a remarkable role in the development of various fields as well as also in education. Students can get benefits from technology but this concept is disagreed that technology has taken the place of manual lectures.
