Some people think that it is necessary to travel to learn about other countries. Others feel same can be learnt through TV and internet. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

In recent times, there has been a high interest in knowing more about other nations, while some people think that a good
to learn about other places is through travelling there, others view
as unnecessary and state that it is possible to learn about other places through the internet and television. In my opinion, I consider visiting other countries a more effective
to learn about their
of life. On the one hand, some people believe that when people travel to other countries, they have a
-hand knowledge about the people and I agree.
In other words
, you have the opportunity to meet people who are sometimes entirely different from what you are familiar with and you are able to interact, understand their beliefs and values and even build personal relationships that
long into the future.
For example
, I visited my dream tour country- France
year and I literally experienced a different environment, enjoyed the traditional food and saw the country different from
objective form of "I"
what I thought it was.
entirely changed my mindset about the French people.
On the other hand
, others say that everything about a society can be learnt through television and the internet. They explain that everything about the world is available through social media and knowing about any nation of interest is easy today without having to travel there. To expatiate, they believe that through the internet, television documentaries and programs, you can understand the culture of a nation.
For instance
, online application has made it easy to connect with people in other environments and through video calls and online chats, you can meet and share experiences with people from different societies. In conclusion, though people vary in the view about the need to travel to other society to know more about them, I strongly believe that the most effective
to learn, experience and appreciate other countries is by visiting and experiencing these societies.

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
