More and More people are working at home rather than in the workplace. Some people say this will bring benefits to the workers and their families, but others think it will bring stress to the home. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

It is increasingly common for people to
work
at
home
, rather than going to the workplace. While it is thought by some people that
this
will bring stress to the
home
, I would agree with those who argue that working from
home
is beneficial to both the workers and their families. On the one hand, those who believe working from
home
is stressful might argue that it can negatively impact the relationship with family members.
This
is because a family member
often have
Suggestion
often has
expectations to do some minor household works
from
Suggestion
of
the one staying at
home
, and if one fails to do so, it might be the cause of trouble between them.
For example
, a wife might ask husband to do dishes as he is working from
home
, and if he is unable to do so due to his
work
commitments, it is likely to bring clash between husband and wife.
As a result
of
this
, working from
home
tends to bring stress.
On the other hand
, my view is that working from
home
can bring joy and happiness to both the worker and their family members. The reason for
this
is that the worker can
work
as well as spend some time with their loved ones, which can be beneficial to strengthen the bond with families.
For instance
, a worker can enjoy breaks with his child, which will help to know and understand each other more.
As a result
, the child would be happy to realize how close his father is with him, and the father might feel satisfied to maintain
work
-family balance. In conclusion, despite the stress of meeting family expectations that working from
home
might bring, my firm belief is that it is a vital step to strengthen the relationship with family members by balancing
work
and family.

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
