IELTS Writing Task 2 carries more weights than Writing Task 1.
The essay for Task 2 of the IELTS writing exam is something that a lot of students are afraid of.
You should say the question again, but using different words that mean the same thing (synonyms).
For example, if your question was something like: It is a commonly held belief that the death penalty is a Draconian penalty and not appropriate in modern society.
The topic could be education, health, age, gender roles, the youth, the environment... Therefore, you cannot learn an amazing sentence that you can insert into an essay, as it is very unlikely that you will be able to use it in your specific question that you have on the day of your test.
However, there is a system to use that gives you a great balanced structure which will help you get a good mark for answering the question...You do NOT have to try and think "What will the examiner think is the right answer here".The examiner is only interested in the level of your English.If capital punishment was reintroduced into society, I do not believe that it would act as a deterrent for heinous crimes.It is my strongly held belief that the death penalty would only result in future miscarriages of justice that serve no purpose in civilised society.I am a native English speaker and I am an English teacher, so the sentences should be good, shouldn't they?But, from the example, you can see that it is possible to re-write the question using completely different vocabulary and still retain the original meaning and 'flavour' of the original question.So just give your first instinct opinion and don't try to out-think yourself.Now that you have given your opinion, you need to back it up. You can begin this paragraph with phrases like: So, if your opinion was that you are against capital punishment, then as an example you could write about situations where people have been jailed for life for murder and then decades later they have been released as they were proven to be innocent.which is after all the whole point of this task - answer the question!Lots of IELTS candidates do not actually do this, as they are trying to impress the examiner with big posh words and forget to focus on actually giving a point of view and supporting that opinion with good examples and clear thought.
