Many people now live in societies where consumer goods are relatively cheap. Do you think the advantages of consumer goods being cheaper outweigh the disadvantages?

In most of the countries of the world,
consumer
goods tend to cheaper and cheaper than before. While I understand that there are some benefits to buyers, I believe that the advantages that low-priced
consumer
goods bring do not outweigh the drawbacks. There are two main benefits that final goods provide.

with luxury products, because of the low price of
consumer
goods, everyone can afford them, even low-income families can buy these goods without too many pressures. The

advantage is, we have more choices and we can buy more products than before.

consumer
products provide some negative effects on society. In order to reduce costs, these products tend to be made with cheap materials, which have a short

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
