Sir, can you tell that how can i use The Guardian newspaper to enhance IELTS vocabulary? Specifically, which content should i read in it for daily? Please guide me.

Hi Simon!
Can you write a sample report for Writing task 1 in Cambridge IELTS 14 Test 1. I find it quite confusing.

@Inr,
Is Accademic or Genaral Trainning the model?

There are sections on Environment, Global development, Cities, Health, Science, Technology, and Family, which would all be relevant to a Task 2 essay.

One way is to focus on verbs. Another to look for useful phrases. Or try writing a heading for each paragraph.

There are also video-clips, which are worth listening to.

As families become smaller, the traditional family support network is disappearing, and this can have a negative impact on children as they grow up. In a nuclear family or single parent household, childcare becomes an expensive and stressful part of daily life. Without the help of grandparents or aunts and uncles, busy parents must rely on babysitters, nannies and after-school clubs to take care of younger children, while older children may be left alone after school and during holidays. The absence of adult family members can mean that friends, television and the Internet become the primary influences on children’s behaviour. It is no surprise that the decline of the extended family has been linked to a rise in psychological and behavioural problems amongst young people.

Tried to write the second one, please comment for errors.

psychological effects of less human interaction
- nobody to talk to, cannot share problems
- passive distractions (e.g. TV, Internet) instead of real interaction
- boredom, loneliness, feelings of isolation and alienation
perhaps a cause of increasing mental illness

Paragraph 3, topic sentence
The trend towards people living alone is perhaps even more damaging because of the psychological effects of reduced human interaction.
That is to say, they usually have no one with whom they can talk or share their problems, and this means that they would rely on passive distractions, such as television or the internet, rather than real human interactions at their homes.
Such a lifestyle would often result in boredom, loneliness, and feelings of isolation and alienation among them, and in the worst situation, they would suffer from certain mental illnesses, namely depression, anxiety, and phobia.
For example, Divya Bharti, who was a famous Bollywood actress, committed suicide in 2007 because she was living alone in Mumbai during that time and thus was suffering from the mental disease called schizophrenia.

some people think it is better for children to grow up in the city, while others think that life in the countryside is more suitable.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of both places?

Simon, could you please explain how many body paragraphs we can write? You teach just write 4 paragraph essay.

At first, I thought this task would be easy as a piece of cake but then I found it was actually a bit difficult. I have had to read your previous plan on the given link and turn back to the task several times to get this final answer. I'm sure that I have to practice more harder.
Anyway, many thanks to your meaningful work. Hope you have the best health and happiness!
