Test 3 Task 2 Model Essay by an Expert One

Today, many people around the world live in multi-cultural societies and many more people encounter aspects of other cultures through television, the internet and other media. Because of this, when people travel, more and more they expect to be comfortable and for people to adapt to their way of life. Sometimes this expectation can lead to difficulties and disagreements. This expectation can even have a negative effect on the culture of the place these people have come to visit. In this essay I will explore both sides of the argument and try to establish a positive way to experience other cultures and societies.  

When people visit cities for specific cultural reasons, these cities may try to adapt and change to be more like what tourists feel comfortable with and expect. In Florence, people expect to eat lots of pizza and look around the churches and famous buildings. As a result, restaurants in the centre of the city only make dishes tourists like and other shops and restaurants the local people need cannot open. All of this means that tourists come and see what they expect. They do not feel uncomfortable in a new culture and so do not learn what it is really like to be and live in Florence or Italy. I believe that being uncomfortable and adapting to a new culture can be a very good way to learn about a new place and to grow as a person. Because visitors want cultures to be welcoming and not make them feel like outsiders, they are unable to experience real cultural differences.

At the same time, some people are so shocked by a new culture that they find their experiences as tourists very unpleasant. This can lead to a dislike of another culture and can equally make visitors feel like they do not belong. Some parts of Ireland are very unpleasant places for English people to visit because of a history of conflict. Many English people remember the IRA bombings, and the Irish remember centuries of English colonialism. Some Irish people do not like English people in their pubs even today. Consequently, these parts of Ireland are not visited by English people. Perhaps, if both tourists and locals learnt to be welcoming, these two countries could start to learn from each other and move forward from the cruelty and crimes committed. Tourism has an important role to play in helping societies understand one another.

The answer is not simple. Both locals and tourists need to learn to be welcoming and to respect each other. Visitors to a culture can learn something from these places and, perhaps, can give something back to the locals. Equally, locals should not feel as though they must adapt to tourists, but must at the same time extend a welcoming hand.

Test 4 Task 1 Question



The graph below shows the unemployment rates in the US and Japan between March 1993 and March 1999.

Write a report for a university lecturer describing the information shown below.

You should write at least 150 words.

Test 4 Task 1 Model Essay by an Expert

The graph shows the percentages of US and Japanese people out of work over a six year period. As a general overview we can see that although unemployment was much higher in the USA at the start of the period, these unemployment rates of these countries have become equal in more recent years.

While in 1992 the American unemployment rate was 4.5% higher than the Japanese, in the spring of 1998 the Japanese and American unemployment rates became equal at just over five percent. There is an inverse correlation between the changes in the unemployment rates between the two countries. For instance, between 1993 and 1994 the US rate dropped by an entire percentage point while the Japanese rate increased by approximately the same amount. This is also true in March 1996, where a spike in Japanese unemployment occurred during the period of steady decline in US rates. However, this does not remain the case after late 1996. As US unemployment became stable and remained around five percent of the work force in the years 1997-99, in the same period Japanese rates grew by over a half-percent. Late 1996 is the only period that shows a significant drop in both American and Japanese unemployment rates.

Test 1 Task 2 Question

Popular events like the football World Cup and other international sporting occasions are essential in easing international tensions and releasing patriotic emotions in a safe way.

Test 1 Task 2 Model Essay by an Expert

The audiences for international sporting events like the Olympics or the World Cup today number in the billions. In every corner of the world, television sets are switched on and people cheer for their national team. But do these events ease or increase the tensions and rivalries that exist between nations, as each team looks for victory? In this essay I will argue that though international sporting events are important for creating an international community, we must be aware of the tensions they can create as well.

Many people saw the 2008 Summer Olympics in China as an important step for China and the international community. China’s decision to host these games meant a new openness between China and the West. The presence of so many international spectators and journalists simply would not have been possible in the recent past. We must not too easily believe, however, that all international tensions vanish during Olympic events. Many will remember the controversy surrounding the Chinese swimmer Ye Shiwen at the London 2012 Olympics. An American coach accused Ye Shiwen of having cheated, stating that such a remarkable victory would not have been possible otherwise. The event became a memorable part of the Olympics as it quickly became an international incident. While these games can promote openness between old rivals, they can also create further tensions.

In the past such international events have been important for politicians and diplomats, too. One positive example is the famous use of ‘Ping-Pong diplomacy’ that was important for the meeting of Mao Zedong and Richard Nixon in 1972. The Ping-Pong team members were among the first Americans to visit China during the Cold War. This event lead to better relations between the two countries, but international sporting events do not always produce such positive outcomes. In Europe, the 1936 Olympics in Berlin were used by the Nazi Party to show the power and accomplishments of fascism. Many important political leaders were invited to be spectators, and the games were broadcast for the first time to many countries around the world.  Hitler and the Nazi Party were praised for their accomplishments. So while such sporting events can be used to create positive meetings between countries, they can also be used for negative ideological purposes.

Today when international sporting events are bigger and have larger audiences than ever before, it is essential to remember both sides of the story. These events have long been useful in creating good relations between rivals, but have also been twisted to serve the wrong purposes. They may be the cause of tensions themselves, but often they create a new openness between nations.

Test 4 Task 2 Question

Test 4 Task 2 Model Essay by an Expert

In a world which is more and more connected, in which cultural and geographical distance is less of a barrier than ever before, developed nations must undertake a renewed commitment to aid in poorer nations – an activity from which they also have much to gain.  This essay will examine three arguments in support of this commitment from economic, social, and ethical perspectives.

The major economic argument for aid is related to the so-called ‘development trap’ – as described by the economist Jeffrey Sachs – in which developing economies find themselves unable to grow from generation to generation because certain basic conditions are not met. Without outside help, these conditions keep reproducing themselves. Limited access to capital, corrupt governance, as well as poor healthcare and infrastructure are all elements that ensure this reproduction. The only way to promote growth – to end these cycles – is to encourage developed governments not simply to provide aid, but to substantially invest. If this were to happen, developed governments themselves might eventually earn returns on investment – one more reason such help makes sense economically.

Many social ills are also addressed by aid initiatives. The unfair treatment of women, for instance, is an area which investment in education can fix. Increasing female literacy rates and extending the period before marriage both empowers young girls and helps change social attitudes toward their sex. More, women who raise children are able to pass on the benefits of education, ensuring entire communities gain valuable skills and knowledge. The help provided by rich nations thus has the ability to change more that GDP values – social equity and tolerance are achievable goals for the foreign aid schemes of rich nations.

Related to the above are the ethical arguments for the provision of aid. We may debate about the economic advantages to global markets, but surely an empathetic appeal trumps all. What ‘responsibility’ means in this situation is – in part – a careful consideration of the role rich nations have played in creating the poverty of the global south. The excesses of colonialism and cold-war-era political strategies have left a legacy of poverty and violence. For instance, development struggles against the cultures of extremism caused by our own strategies of political intervention. In coming to understand our need to take responsibility, we should move beyond a simple sense of the need to help the poor. We must also realize that responsibility involves recognizing a debt that we have still to pay.

From a variety of perspectives, foreign aid simply makes good sense. A richer combined global community is the apple offered to us – and one without the social of inequities that follow on poverty.

Test 1 Task 1 Question



The charts below show the number of Japanese tourists travelling abroad between 1985 and 1995 and Australia’s share of the Japanese tourist market.

Write a report for a university lecturer describing the information shown below.

You should write at least 150 words.

Test 1 Task 1 Model Essay

The number of Japanese tourists engaging in international travel has shown a relatively steady upward trend from 1985 to 1995. In this ten year period, the number of Japanese tourists travelling abroad almost quadrupled, from just over 4 million in 1985 to around 15 million in 1995.

Similarly, the percentage of those tourists travelling to Australia has increased between 1985 and 1995, from 2% in 1985 to a peak of over 6% in 1993. 1994 saw a slight drop in percentage, down to 6%. The rise in percentage over the decade is generally steady, with a small drop in 1989 from approximately 4.8% down to 4.2%. This followed an unusually sharp rise in percentage from 1987 to 1988. After the drop, the percentage recovered to 4.8% the following year, and continued to rise thereafter.

Overall, it is clear that the number of Japanese tourists travelling abroad is increasing enormously, with millions more travelling internationally with each year. Of these international tourists, an increasing percentage are choosing to travel to Australia.
