Countries are becoming more and more similar because people are able to buy the same products anywhere in the world. Do you think it is a positive or negative development?

Nowadays, due to the globalization, people can buy many similar products around the world. Personally, I believe that there are both pros and cons about
this
development.
First
,
this
development could be beneficial and convenient for those people who travel a lot.
This
means that they can buy the same goods in many different countries during their journey without worrying about if they forgot to bring anything with them or not.
For instance
, people who travel with overweight luggage can buy a new one in any gift shop in any country's airport at any time, so they do not have to concern about the weight of their baggages.
On the other hand
,
this
might cause a huge impact to the local people in their own countries. Those local shops may have to compete with the globalization products, in order to earn more money.
Furthermore
,
this
could lead the decline of the diversity of goods. If we can buy the same products around the world, the traditional products of the country may replace by those international products.
For example
, there are many traditional restaurants have been substituted by international fast food restaurants,
such
as McDonalds and Fridays. In conclusion, there are two sides of one coin, as we benefit from the convenience of globalization, we should
also
concern about the local objects in our own country.

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
