you're defnitely right simon. As usual, you always share some useful advices. besides agree vs. disagree paragraph, we also call them opinion paragraph where we insert our point of view on a specific subject.
Thank you again

Hello Simon, I have a question:

If I made a balanced view in the first graph, how could I reemphsize it at the end of the article?

If I still wrote While I agree....,I also believe, that would be really weird.

Dear Simon

Thanks a lot for explanation.
I think now, I got the point that I needed to know.

Hi Simon,

Is it possible to make some of your videos free for people who bought your ebook? It will be good for us to study your video along with your ebook. I hope you can consider my suggestion.
Thank you.

Hi,simon,
I am sarah.
Thank you. please help me to check this structure is right?

Air traffic is increasingly leading to more noise, pollution and airport construction. One reason for this is the growth in low-cost passenger flights, often to holiday destinations.
Some people say that government should try to reduce air traffic by taxing it more heavily.
Do you agree or disagree?

Introduction:
Although some people believe that taxes should be increased for air travel, this is not he best solution.

para2: Those that support taxing airlines believe that....

paras3: However,there are a number of reasons why this is not the right course of action.Firstly..Secondly...Finally...

Conclusion: In conclusion, it seems to me that introducing heavy taxes on air travel in not fair or workable.


The structure of this essay:
My opinion is "disagree",and present it in introduction/at the beginning of paragraph 3/ conclusion, but I also discuss both sides.

is this right or reasonable?
is there anything i should improve?
Thank you very much.

Hi all,
I'm taking Ielts on next Saturday , please wish me good luck.

someone plz help me about this topic.
what should i wright?
Under British and Australian laws a jury in a crimincal case has no access to information about the defendants past criminal record.This protects the person who is being accused of the crime.

Some lawyers have suggested that this practice should be changed that a jury should be given all the past facts before they reach their decision about the case.
Do you agree or disagree?

Hello Simon, if I write less than 250 words say around 240 and give my position in conclusion only what marks will be deducted?

100 % my wording (No googling or copycat stuff). Hope the Mr. Simon will be kind enough to into this

People have different views with regard to the question about whether or not the government should help mothers during the time of upbringing their children.While I agree that mothers should definitely receive assistance from the state, it should also be the responsibility of the whole society.

On the one hand, the government should afford an adequate quality level of life to mothers while raising their children because it has advantageous to the children’s health and society’s development. Mother’s would be more encouraged to breastfeed their infants long enough which will help the children to have a strong immunity system and bone’s structure. Many researches have shown that mother’s milk is essential to have a healthy and strong body and can not be competed with any other artificial baby’s nutrition .Another reason, it has a great impact on the nation’s growth. Children require a safe learning environment and should be prepared before they come into contact with the outside world. Mother’s main role at this stage would be to teach their children the positive attitudes in a funny way through telling stories about the angles and evils which can demonstrate the good and bad acts.

On the other hand, the community should support mothers for upbringing their children. One way to do this is by continuing paying taxes to the state. part of the tax-payment should go to the baby-caring mothers. Also, employers should be fair by paying working mothers salaries and granting them a paid-leave until their children are old enough to go to school.

In conclusion, both the state and the community should financially support mothers and I believe this would help to have a fully functional future generations.

Hi Kevin,

I don't think "addressing both perspectives" means that you must give a balanced answer. Even if you have a strong opinion, I think you'll find yourself mentioning the other side of the argument in some way e.g. by refuting the opposite view, or by contrasting your view with an alternative. I find that this happens quite naturally when I'm writing a 'strong opinion' essay. I do think the opposite perspective is always addressed in some way, even if it is not the main focus of the essay.

Hi Simon,

Please check my essay about an introduction on topic"It is more important to use the space in cities well than make them look beautiful. To what extent do u agree or disagree"

My introduction: Nowadays, utilizing lands is a basic topic among all city dwellers as well as governments due to ever increasing population.This changes make our cities as high density buildings. While I agree that free spaces should be used as formative,well furnished city is also required for more tourists and citizens. This essay will discuss both point of views

Thank you so much, Teacher Simon!
