Just send me a message and I’ll see what I can do! Candidates will be given three short opinions related to the bullet points.
They may, if they wish, use these to help develop their essay, but they should do so in their own words, as far as possible. AN ESSAY is usually written for an academic tutor and may be a follow-up to an activity, such as attending a panel discussion or watching a documentary. It should be well organised, with an introduction, clear development, and an appropriate conclusion. Use the task input to help you plan but try to avoid copying phrases from the input in Part 1. In the introduction, state the topic clearly, give a brief outline of the issue, saying why it is important or why people have different opinions about it.
DO give your opinion in the final paragraph. Each new paragraph has one main idea, stated in a topic sentence. If you include a drawback, give a possible solution, too.
DO use a relatively formal register and an objective tone. Remember to use linking adverbials to organise your ideas and to make it easy for the reader to follow your argument. In the exam, allow yourself time to check your grammar, spelling and punctuation thoroughly. Your class has attended a panel discussion on what methods governments should use to discourage the use of private cars in the centre of the city. You have made the notes below.
Make businesses pay parking levies for their employees and they’ll move out of the city centre. Improve the public transport system, then people won’t need their cars. If people understood how much better pedestrianised ciyt centres are, they wouldn’t want to bring their cars in. Write an essay for your tutor, discussing two of the methods in your notes.
