PTE Essay- Age discrimination occurs when a decision is made on the basis of a person’s age. In the workplace, these are most often decisions about being employed in the first place, winning promotions or being unfairly dismissed. Should discrimination against older workers be made illegal?

Undeniably, laws are there to protect fundamental rights of citizens. As far as the question of discriminating against senior or older workers is concerned, i don’t feel such behaviour can be regulated by law. Let us dig deeper to analyze various aspects of the topic.
To begin with, employers are the sole custodians of their business. For the progress of their business, they need to take some tough decisions. In this regard, it becomes imperative for them to employ the right person for the right job. This is the basic tenet of any business. If the law of the land regulates employment, it would be considered as an uncalled for interference. To quote an example, for front office jobs in airlines and other industries, young and presentable executives are desirable. Old people may not be the best-fit for such positions. Similarly, other vocations such as those of army and air-force, call for a certain level of physical strength. Candidates beyond a certain age, might not come with that strength, and hence can-not be employed for such positions. It would be prudent for law to leave such decisions to the employers only.
Well, the purpose is not to say that discrimination based on age is healthy. Law should definitely address such issues where employers show personal bias towards employees based on age or gender. However, law making authorities should be prudent enough to understand the demands of the job. For example, even for government jobs there are set benchmarks for age and physical fitness. Only those aspirants, who fulfill the criteria, are given an opportunity to appear in the test.
To conclude, I do not endorse the view that discrimination based on age should be declared unlawful.

Essay – Some people think that several short holidays from school are better, while others think one long summer holiday for the year is better for children. Discuss and include your own opinion and relevant examples from your experience.  

Some people think that several short holidays from school are better, while others think one long summer holiday for the year is better for children. Discuss and include your own opinion and relevant examples from your experience.

 

School holidays- long are short- always bring happiness to students. I would rather go with one long vacation, rather than many shorter ones. Let us explore various aspects of this topic.

There are several strong reasons to support one long annual-vacation. The strongest reason is that it gives enough time to learn a new skill. To quote an example, I learnt swimming and playing guitar during my summer vacations. Developing a new skill requires long-dedicated training. It is possible to dedicate long hours, if there is no homework to do.  Second reason is that it gives enough time to travel and explore new places. I still remember how I enjoyed my trip to Srinagar and Kashmir during my summer vacations. I cherish the old-days I spent there. Lastly, long vacations give us opportunity to spend time with our grandparents and cousins. During our vacations all my relatives used to gather at one place. It was like an unending carnival. Right from the beginning of the day to the late nights, we used to enjoy to the hilt without the worries of tomorrow.

There are several advantages of short vacations also. They help to break the monotony of a mundane routine. For example, winter vacations after half-yearly exams rejuvenate a student. As such, school routines are too hectic these days. A short break helps a student to gear up for the days ahead. For that matter, even two-days week-off also serves the purpose.

To conclude, while there are positive points on both sides of argument, I tend to go with long yearly holidays, rather than several short breaks.

Should airlines be free from government regulations – IELTS Essay

Some people think that air travel should grow without government regulations, while others believe that governments regulate them. Discuss both views and give your own opinion..

Rough Draft

Go down for the essay…

Government should regulate it… (control it… regulate it…

  1. For air traffic control…
  2. To prevent any mal practices.. and
  3. Over charge the customers..

 Grow without any regulations.. autonomous.. governed by their own rules.

————

  1. they know their business well.. restrictive..
  2. the ticket prices might be less.. if there is no minimum price / barrier.
  3. it may lead to price war and some airlines may suffer losses..

 

Conclusion: To conclude, I strongly advocate that Airline industries should be given autonomy to operate their business..

 Intro… 3 lines..

  1. State the obvious
  2. State your opinion
  3. Deep dive..

 Essay

Undeniably, government regulations may restrict the freedom of airlines. I am of the opinion that in the larger interest of stakeholders, airline industries should not be bound by government-policies. Let us dig deeper to understand the nuances of this complex topic.

 

Those who support government regulations give many arguments to bolster their views. Firstly, such regulations will restrict (prevent) any malpractices by the operators. Sometimes to earn profits, they resort to such ways which might not be in the best interest of the society. To quote an example, they may comprise with the safety norms of flying. They may also reduce prices for a short time just to attract a lot of customers. This may lead to closure of some operators.

 

However, there are equally strong arguments to de-regulate airlines. The strongest argument is that it will benefit customers as airlines can offer inexpensive flights. It will also lead to competition where the operators will try to enhance their quality of services and offers. To quote an example, international operators such as Lufthansa provide excellent services because they are not bound by such regulations. Another argument is that Airline-operators are well-versed with their business. Over-regulation by public-bodies sometimes hinders their growth. This may also lead to huge losses to them.

 

My view is that as far as security is concerned, there should be no-compromise. However, on other aspects such as fixing ticket-rates, airlines should be given a free hand. This will enable them to run their business in a smooth manner.

 

To conclude, I strongly advocate that Airlines should be free from the clutches of government-regulations.

IELTS Essay Practice.. Will the world be a better place with fewer languages? Sample Essay

Every year several languages die out. Some people think that this is not important because life will be easier if there are fewer languages in the world

To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?

Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.

===================

Analysis of topic: To what extent do you agree or disagree… in other words.. you can discuss both views.. and support one… Make sure you give a clear final verdict that reflects your opinion

It is good because:1. Fewer languages, easier communication 2. Some languages lose relevance 3. Ease of Business..

It is bad because..1. Cultural diversity 2. Regional nuances 3. Scriptures and old knowledge

I support.. Preserving languages is important from the perspective of preserving diversity of cultures and old-knowledge..

Write conclusion first.. While some languages might not be used in day-to-day, transactions, it still makes eminent sense to save them.

 

======================

 

Essay:

 

Introduction:

Languages are akin to bridges. Every language old or new; spoken by many, or by a few, has its value, and so it should be preserved. Let us dig deeper to understand the nuances of this subject, with some examples.

Counter argument first:

Will fewer languages make our life easier or convenient? Well, it may ease communication to a certain extent. Businessmen my find it easier to tie with people from diverse cultures, if they communicate using same verbiage. It is also true that, languages have their own life-span. They are similar to living entities, and with passage of time, their vocabulary, rules of grammar etc lose relevance. So, it is natural for some languages to lose currency. It will not be a good idea (pragmatic) to force using a certain language, even if it does not serve the purpose. In other words, fewer languages may have some advantages.

Does this mean, old languages need not be preserved? I beg to differ. Death of a language is the death of an era. It means a fatal blow to associated knowledge. To quote an example, Sanskrit is an old Indian language which is not very popular today, however, old Hindu scriptures such as Bhagwat Geeta and Ramayana were written in this language. Further, books of Aurveda (a branch of medicine) ,were also written in Sanskrit. To preserve this knowledge, it is imperative to preserve Sanskrit.

There are other compelling arguments to preserve old languages. A language is like Oxygen for the culture of an area. To preserve the rich and diverse culture of a region, it becomes necessary to preserve the native language.

 

To conclude, while some languages might not be used in day-to-day transactions, it still makes eminent sense to preserve them.

Essay Topic: Are online business meetings and training better than offline mode?

Nowadays many business meetings and training are happening online and not in real offices. Do you think advantages outweigh the disadvantages in this matter?

Advantages…. 1. saves time of travelling.. 2. Saves money.. 3. saves energy.. saves paper.. 4. Anywhere anytime… learning… / 5. Pppl from diff areas.. 6. Lodging and boarding..

Disadantages.. 1. Personal touch.. 2. Dependency on computer, internet and electrictiy… 3. Confidential information may get leacked.. 4. Sub such as math etc.. might not be taught easily..5. we can not touch a product or equipment.. so we can not check the quality..

————————————————-

Intro… 3 line…a. state the obvious.. b. state your opinion.. c.. invite for futher discussion….

The advent of computer and internet have made online-learning and realtime-meeting easy and inexpensive. In my perspective this is a welcome change. Let us dig deeper to understand the benefits of this new trend.

In the yester-years organizing meetings or training sessions was an ardous task. Lot of preparation was required in arranging the logistics. First of all, appropriate venue was required. Secondly, expenditure on arranging conference-rooms used to be very high. Futher, people needed to travel to the venue. Many participants used to hate travelling from one city to another, just to attend a session for a few hours. Not just the participants, the same problems were faced by trainers or the conveners of meetings also. In short, organizing and mangaging such sessions was a nightmare.

However, internet and online meeting softwares have changed the whole landscape. More meetings and trainings are conducted online, than face-to-face, these days. To quote an example, I learnt German from a native through online mode. I searched for a good trainer in Delhi, but he was located very far, and he quoted exorbitant (excessive) (very high) fees. Thankfully, I got introduced to a German native, who agreed to teach me at lower-rate. I am enjoying my training, and I am learning really quickly. Similarly, in my office, we conduct meetings with our branches in other coutries, through online-applications. I find it very easy and as effective as fact-to-face mode. Organizing the meeting is quite easy now. In other words, online mode is actually a blessing-in-disguise, as it helps to save time, energy and money.

To conclude, it is obvious that online-meetings and training-sessions socre higher than the offline mode, in todays world.

To conclude, boudaries are no more the barriers in the modern world. Internet has bridged the gaps between geographies. I tend to believe that online mode is a better way to conduct meetings and coachings, than the old modes.

blessing in disguise
logistics: vyavastha…

Undeniably, pollution is a grave concern. As far as the question of taxing the industries is concerned, it can be one of the ways to tame this monster. Let us dig deeper to explore the ways to alleviate this global problem.

To begin, taxing the industries can definitely help to a certain extent. Firstly, it will generate necessary funds to upgrade the existing infrastructure. Secondly, these funds can be invested to facilitate research to find advanced ways of pollution-control. Various educational and research institutions can be roped-in to come-up with more effective ways. Thirdly, it is a very fair policy. Industries which cause a lot of pollution, must also shoulder the responsibility to control it in some way.

However, there can be other ways also. Government can stipulate strict roles, for industries to invest in waste-treatment. Such a policy will promote prevention, and thus can be a more effective way to deal with the issue. To quote an example, lots of chemical factories dispose their wastes directly into water bodies – rivers, ponds etc. If these effluents are treated before disposing, it will prevent pollution on the first place. As it is commonly quipped – ‘prevention is better than cure’ – this can be a more effective way.

Further, norms can be laid for setting up industries in areas of less population. Outskirts of the city are more suitable for setting up refineries, and factories. If land is allocated on cheaper rates in the outskirts, it will incentivize industrialists to set-shop there, rather than in the heart of the city.

In essence, it takes more than simply taxing the industries to control industrial-pollution.

Understanding the topic

The topic specifically talks about industrial pollution. So it is advisable to focus on that only.. not pollution in general.

Further, it talks about controlling it through levying taxes. So we need to weave our arguments around this subject – can paying taxes alone help? Is it the only way or one of the ways? What can be other alternatives.

Essay – Celebrity status no longer equates with talent/accomplishments. Discuss.

“Gold is gold, even if it does not glitter.”

Essay – for practice

Essay Topic- Celebrity status no longer equates with talent/accomplishments. Discuss.

Sample Answer

If not talent and accomplishment, then what else is left to celebrate? In my view a true celebrity is one whose life and work is worth a celebration. Let us dig a little deeper to understand this topic.

To begin, being a celebrity is not about having a ‘temporary-status’. It is not a title or a tag that changes with time. Being a celebrity is a matter of joy for ever. From this perspective a celebrity is one who inspires people, even after his/her death. To quote an example, Mother terssa is a true celebrity on this parameter. Bhagat Singh and Gandhi, are also two such inspiring personalities which I regard as celebrities. Simlarly, Ratan Tata and Bill Gates are two celebrities from the field of business. Further, Amitabh Bachchan and Al Pachino are the true luminaries from the tinsel-world.

A celebrity in  never cares or works for being a celebrity. Their goal is not being famous or rich, but being true to oneself and to serve the world in the best possible way. Glamour and fan-following are the off-shoots not the essence of being a celebrity.

Ironically, people consider famous people as celebrities. This is a wrong notion. Dawood Ibrahim and Ram Rahim might be two names which are known or famous.  But, are they celebrities? Do you want to celebrate their success? It is time we understand the difference between being a celebrity, and being known or famous.

To conclude, Gold is gold, even if it does not glitter. Being a celebrity is not about name and fame, but it is about being true to yourself. It is about setting a new paradigm for generations to draw inspiration from.

===================

 

Notes and Comments

Start with a question

If not talent and accomplishment, then what else is left to celebrate? In my view a true celebrity is one whose life and work is worth a celebration. Let us dig a little deeper to understand this topic.

One good way of grabbing attention is by asking a question. You can start your essay with a question, as shown.

 

ielts essay sample – important things are free

Some people think that most important things in life are free and can not be  bought.

To what extent do you agree?

Money can not buy everything. This is especially true for those things which are related to our sense of well-being. Let us dig a little deeper to understand this topic from all perspectives.

What is the cost of true friendship? How much will you pay for mother’s love? Can someone buy you peace of mind? Well, these are a few invaluable assets that do not come with a price tag. Blessed are those who are able to realize this truth and value these most important gifts of life, that are absolutely free.

Similarly, gifts of nature such are rivers, mountains, a cool breeze of air, and good-health are absolutely free. Likewise, our body and sense-organs, the most sophisticated machines  come totally free to us.

The purpose is not to undermine the importance of assets  that can be bought with money. However, it is clear beyond doubt that money can not buy the most important things in life.

Ironically, people give more importance to money and the associated luxuries of life. People are so busy in the pursuit of happiness that they forget to be happy. Surprisingly, there is no finish line of this rat-race. One target leads to another big target and people get caught in the vicious cycle, chasing the mirage of ‘things that can make them happy’.

To conclude, the priceless gifts of life do not come with a price-tag. It is time we realize this cardinal rule.
