Test 4 Task 1 Model Essay by an Expert

The first graph displays the number of marriages and divorces in America between 1970 and 2000. The second compares the marital statuses of Americans in 1970 and in 2000. Between 1970 and 2000, rates of marriage remained consistently significantly higher than divorce rates. This concurs with the second graph, which shows that being married was by far the most common marital status amongst adult Americans in both 1970 and 2000, at 70% and 60% respectively. Whilst marriage rates remained at 2.5 million between 1970 and 1980, there was then a steady decline in the number of marriages, with 2 million in the year 2000. This is consistent with the second graph, which shows that a lower percentage of American adults were married in 2000 than in 1970.

Divorce rates reached a peak of 1.4 million in 1980, before declining back to the 1970 rate of 1 million in 2000. In 1970, being divorced was the least common marital status. In 2000, however, being widowed was slightly less common than being divorced, with a percentage difference of roughly 3%.

Test 3 Task 2 Model Essay by an Expert Two

Whether or not foreign visitors should follow local customs is a complex issue. Something that is regarded as completely normal in one country can be highly offensive in another.

On the one hand, it is important for foreign visitors such as tourists to be respectful of their host country’s culture and customs. It would be highly insensitive to engage in offensive and insulting behaviour, when one is essentially a guest in another country. Insensitivity or ignorance of local customs can also be dangerous for visitors; in the United Arab Emirates, for example, it is illegal to show certain signs of romantic affection in public; this includes behaviour such as kissing, which would be considered very normal in more liberal countries such as the UK.

In such liberal countries, cultural differences are generally welcomed, mostly because there are few legal restrictions on behaviour that is allowed in many other countries. That is, most activities that are legal in other countries are also legal in liberal countries, such as European countries. These countries generally maintain that diversity is a very positive force in society, since it encourages its citizens to learn about and accept different views and cultures, making societies richer and more tolerant. Research has shown that contact with other cultures and groups reduces violence and antagonism caused by racism and cultural differences.

My generally liberal standpoint leads me to believe that a liberal and accepting approach to cultural differences is best, since it can lead to tolerance and even peace. However, I accept that in countries with stricter regulations on behaviour, such as religious societies, people ought to be respectful, particularly when they are visiting the country.

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 2 Task 1 Question

The table below gives information about changes in modes of travel in England between 1985 and 2000. Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparisons when relevant.

Write at least 150 words.

Test 2 Task 1 Model Essay by an Expert

The table compares how many miles an average English person travelled by different modes of transport in the years 1985 and 2000. In total, the average person travelled around 1,700 more miles in 2000 than in 1985. The mode of transport with the greatest difference between the two years is the car, which covered 1,607 more miles per year in 2000 than in 1985. In both years, however, the car was the mode of transport by which the average person travelled the furthest. In 1985, taxi was the mode of transport by which the average person travelled the smallest distance; in 2000, it was the bicycle, by a very small margin compared to the also unpopular taxi.

In the year 2000, people travelled less far by foot, by bike and significantly less by local bus than in 1985. Since these are modes of transport usually used to cover small distances, this is consistent with the overall trend of people travelling a further total distance on average in the year 2000. Concurrently, distances travelled by long distance bus and train increased significantly from the year 1985 to 2000.

Test 1 Task 2 Question

Write about the following topic:

Today, the high sales of popular consumer goods reflect the power of advertising and not the real needs of the society in which they are sold.
To what extent do you agree or disagree? Give reasons for your answer ad include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.

Write at least 250 words.

Test 1 Task 2 Model Essay by an Expert Two

In today’s consumerist society, sales of popular goods are through the roof. Arguably, powerful advertising has influenced this trend of buying unnecessary items. However, the idea of what is a ‘real need’ is very dependent on context.

Advertising is big business, and is now designed to be highly influential on consumers. Advertising agencies employ psychologists to come up with increasingly creative and powerful ways to persuade the public that certain products will make them happier, healthier, even better looking. One technique that advertisers use is to suggest that certain products or brands would make you belong to an exclusive group. This is a powerful psychological drive, and can make consumers buy particular products or brands that they may not truly need.

Indeed, many popular consumer goods are arguably completely unnecessary, suggesting that it is advertising that prompts people to buy them. For example, most people update their smart-phones every couple of years. Is this really necessary? More likely, it is a result of powerful advertising suggesting that it is uncool and old-fashioned to have anything other than the latest model of their branded product.

On the other hand, though, what can be defined as the ‘real needs’ of a society is very dependent on the context. Do we really need virtual maps in our pockets, to direct us whenever we are lost? Do we even need ovens and hobs, when an open fire would cook our food? Technically no, but both products are extremely useful. Thus, it is easy to push the idea of a society’s ‘real needs’ too far. The ‘needs’ of a society change and develop along with the technology it uses.

Advertising is undoubtedly a powerful force in modern society. However, it is worth remembering that often, high sales of consumer goods, whilst prompted by advertising, may be a reflection of high-quality, convenient products that people do actually need in the modern world.
