In the modern world, the image (photograph or film) is becoming a more powerful way of communicating than the written word. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

There is no doubt that these days pictures are influencing our lives a lot, especially with the smart devices that are equipped with high resolution camera,
however
, the question: Are images more powerful than words? Is being a controversial issue nowadays.In
this
essay I am going to examine
this
phenomenon from both viewpoints, while, I tend to believe that an effective photo has better impact that a full report. On one side of the argument, there are people who argue that we cannot use pictures all the time as it is not a common way of communication and getting in touch with others.
Furthermore
, not everyone can handle the expensive cameras and
also
film makers cannot have a full film done totally by photos without words.
For instance
, pencils and pens are the cheapest tools in order to spread a message because it is affordable by everyone.
On the other hand
, it is
also
possible to consider it with the opposing case.It is often argued that in fact photos are more effective than words because they can express feelings and emotions.
Moreover
, taking pictures and choosing suitable light and location is a skill that can be invested in anyone regardless of the age.One good illustration here is the pictures kept from the
second
world war.They are considered as a fortune to keep memories alive and
this
could not be applicable by words.Several photos won prizes either during wars, celebrations or disasters. In conclusion, as we have seen there is no easy answer to
this
question,
however
, in my opinion, photos stay alive for a long time more than words, especially in the previous decades.

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
