Some people think that the range of technology available to people is increasing the gap between the rich and the poor. Others think it has an opposite effect. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

It is true that the advent of
has brought
tremendous benefits to human life. While
can narrow the
gap between
social classes to some extent, I believe that some technological products have set affluent individuals apart from others, as will now be discussed. On the one hand, it is true that
has transformed our lives and reduced the gap between individuals. The availability of technological products has allowed massive numbers of people to live a comfortable life in almost the same way.
For example
today nearly
Accept comma addition
today, nearly
every household has at least a television, a fridge or an air-conditioner, all of which help to increase the overall standard of living and narrow the gap between the haves and the have-nots in society. The spectacular growth
of low
-cost airlines
means that more people are able to take a flight to the place they want to go to. Looking the argument in
light, some feel that
has bridged the
gap between
the rich and the poor.
On the other hand
, I side with those who argue that
closely similar or comparable in kind or quality or quantity or degree
has separated wealthy individuals from poorer ones. Many technological products
are prohibitively
expensive, and only the rich are able to afford them. Luxury cars and private jets,
for instance
, have created a shining image for the owners, giving them an aura of confidence when they appear in public. Those who live on a
deficient in amount or quality or extent
in contrast
, could merely enjoy a frugal life with mediocre but necessary consumer products. The idea of possessing the latest
in the home might
be far
-fetched to bourgeois individuals. In conclusion,
some technological products are produced for the masses, I believe that some others contribute to the difference in lifestyles between rich people and poor ones.

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


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
