People tend to work longer hours nowadays. Working long hours has a negative effect on themselves their families and the society so working hours should be restricted. Do you agree or disagree?

more common in today’s society. I personally believe that
this
trend not only has a severe impact on the workers themselves, but
also
on their families and the
community
as a whole.
Therefore
, I totally agree with the idea of limiting working hours. A few decades ago, a person normally worked an average of eight hours per day. Average daily working hours in recent years,
however
, have significantly increased to ten or even fourteen.
This
, in my opinion, adversely affects employees’ health and productivity.
For example
, people who spend longer at
work
are more likely to suffer from various health issues, ranging from fatigue to more serious problems like anxiety disorders or even stroke

At the family level, busy working schedules prevent people from taking frequent family trips or even just having meals together. Relationships among members are greatly weakened if they cannot make
time
for each other. In terms of

life, overworked people do not devote
time
to voluntary activity that brings benefits for their society. My uncle,
for example
, hardly has
time
for local
community
service projects
such
as conservation
work
or working with a charity because he works more than sixty hours per week. In conclusion, I would argue that working
time
should be reduced since the frequency of long working hours exerts an adverse effect on employees, their family bonds and their
community

Include an introduction and conclusion

A conclusion is essential for IELTS writing task 2. It is more important than most people realise. You will be penalised for missing a conclusion in your IELTS essay.

The easiest paragraph to write in an essay is the conclusion paragraph. This is because the paragraph mostly contains information that has already been presented in the essay – it is just the repetition of some information written in the introduction paragraph and supporting paragraphs.

The conclusion paragraph only has 3 sentences:

  • Summary
  • Restatement of thesis
  • Prediction or recommendation

Example:

To summarize, a robotic teacher does not have the necessary disciple to properly give instructions to students and actually works to retard the ability of a student to comprehend new lessons. Therefore, it is clear that the idea of running a classroom completely by a machine cannot be supported. After thorough analysis on this subject, it is predicted that the adverse effects of the debate over technology-driven teaching will always be greater than the positive effects, and because of this, classroom teachers will never be substituted for technology.

Start your conclusion with a linking phrase. Here are some examples:

  • In conclusion
  • To conclude
  • To summarize
  • Finally
  • In a nutshell
  • In general
