IELTS – Writing Task 2 – Some people prefer to spend their lives …

Question

Some people prefer to spend their lives doing the same things and avoiding change. Others, however, think that change is always a good thing.
Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.

My Answer

Nowadays live is very fast changed. Every day we have new technology innovations. People need to learn every day something new to stay tuned up. But in the fast word still exist people that prefer to do the same things and don’t like changes in their lives. On the other hand most of people change their lives every day.

Some people found their live pattern. The pattern provides stability in their lives and they don’t want to change anything in their lives. But our century live don’t have stability. It can be changed at any time. And the people don’t ready to the changes and may be trough to side of ‘live highway’. But the lives of the people are easy, without stresses.

On other hand, most of people follow by changes of the ‘live highway’ and ready on every second to change their lives according to situation. The people don’t like to stay on one place, them all time are in moving, looking for something new. In addition the live speed takes all power from the people and them don’t have time for them self. It brings them to healthy problems.

I think this is good idea to be in middle. It is good to be in centre of events, try to change live if it is not suitable for you, be all time in movement. At same time you need to think about constancy. Don’t change anything if you are not sure it will be good for you.

Examiner Answer

Over the last half century the pace of change in the life of human beings has increased beyond our wildest expectations. This has been driven by technological and scientific breakthroughs that are changing the whole way we view the world on an almost daily basis. This means that change is not always a personal option, but an inescapable fact of life, and we need to constantly adapt to keep pace with it.

Those people who believe they have achieved some security by doing the same, familiar things are living in denial. Even when people believe they are resisting change themselves, they cannot stop the world around them from changing. Sooner or later they will find that the familiar jobs no longer exist, or that the ‘safe’ patterns of behaviour are no longer appropriate.

However, reaching the conclusion that change is inevitable is not the same as assuming that ‘change is always for the better’. Unfortunately, it is not always the case that new things are promoted because they have good impacts for the majority of people. A lot of innovations are made with the aim of making money for a few. This is because it is the rich and powerful people in our society who are able to impose changes (such as in working conditions or property developments) that are in their own interests.

In conclusion, I would say that change can be stimulating and energising for individuals when they pursue it themselves, but that all change, including that which is imposed on people, does not necessarily have good outcomes

What do you think ?

    First, I think its interesting what you wrote. And the structure is fine; you have introduction, body and conclusion. BUT, you have a few minor mistakes which in some sentences the point is not clear.
    And use more connections words (which I am sure you have many examples in the book).
    See the changes I would make on the next comment :-)

    Nowadays, life is very fast changing. New technologies and innovations are arising every day. Most of the people learn something new every day and we all should stay tuned up. However at the same time in our fast world we are living in, there are still exist minority of people who prefer to do the same things every day and who do not like changes in their lives. Especially in the contrast to the majority of the population who change their lives every day.

    From one point of view, this minority group of people found already their life pattern. This pattern provides a stability in their lives and they do not want to change anything in their lives. What makes their life easier and without stress. Some may argue that this way of life healthier. However in our century live, we do not have stability and it can be changed at any time. In the result, those people may not be ready to the changes and may be trough to the side of the ‘live highway’.

    On the other hand, the majority of the people do follow the fast changes of the ‘live highway’ and every second are ready to change their lives according to the situation. Those people are dynamic and do not like to stay on one place. They are all the time moving and looking for something new. However, the fast life changes takes all the energy from them so they do not have time for themselves. In the result what may brings them to health problems.

    In the conclusion, I believe that to be in the middle would be the best. My principles are being brave and optimistic. Its always good to be in the center of events when needed but trying to change when it is not suitable for you is important. At the same time you need to think about constancy. Do not change anything if you are not sure it will be good for you.
