Thirdly
, reading printed books can actually help you to reduce visual fatigue. Spending many of your times before the screen with artificial light can affect deeply to your vision health, including blurred vision, redness and even your sleep. Reading physical books
on the other hand
, provided with enough light will not cause you these symptoms and it can help you have a better, deeper sleep.
In addition
, reading physical books have some joy value that you won’t get from reading electronic ones. There’s something very special about the feeling of holding a physical books, smelling the newly printed pages and read it in a tranquil
environment
that make it a unique form of entertainment that can help you to relax after having a strenuous day. With that being said, we can now conclude that physical and digital sources of
information
both have their own advantages and disadvantages which have shown that neither of them are perfect. Both of them are great and necessary sources of
information
and neither are to be missed. If we know how to use them in a proper way, we can have our wisdom widened, in the most effective way.

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
