Advantage / Disadvantage Essay Tips
Hi, I'm Liz. Welcome to my IELTS tips, model answers and practice
Thank you for your time and knowledge sharing.
I would like to know, if for the above model essay if they ask for give your opinion what should should be modified in order to reuse the above essay.
Current IELTS exam topics and questions:
Question: Many students take a year off between finishing high score and going to university. Do you think the advantages outweigh the disadvantages?
Into: Having a gap year before starting tertiary education is becoming increasing popular. I believe that although there may be problems with this, in the long run it is more beneficial and helps students developing into more rounded characters.
See this page: and then review all my tips:
One writing task which misleads always is – 2 opinions discussion and your opinion. Kindly help with this. Following are the 2 examples of that
1. Some people prefer to live in a house, while others feel that there are more advantages to living in an apartment.
Are there more advantages than disadvantages of living in a house compared with living in an apartment?
2. Some experts believe that it is better for children to begin learning a foreign language at primary school rather than secondary school.
Do the advantages of this outweigh the disadvantages?
As you can see from my model essays – there is no title.
Your videos are very helpful to me, and I’m still studying some of the essay lessons. I’m practising my writing task 2 and I have realise that I am not sure when to use can and could, shall and should, and will and would. Is there any rules of when to use these words. I hope to hear from you.

Hello there Liz, I think this is a discussion essay so my question is, can I freely give my opinion on what side I am for as a conclusion even though it wasn’t asked? Thank you. =)
