1.B. Nowadays, people are spending increasingly large amounts of money on their marriage parties. Many people feel large and expensive weddings cause problems for the bride and groom. Do you agree? Use personal examples in your response.

It is often argued that wedding parties should be done in a big and costly
way
as it may benefit the couple.
However
, I completely disagree and think that weddings should be cost effective and done in a moderate
way
.
Firstly
, big parties

usually very money consuming and may pose as a burden on the newly married pair.
This
is because of the huge funds that go into the big day as the couple may have to borrow money to fund their day.
For example
, a friend of mine and his wife wanted a very big wedding and had to take a bank loan to support their
marriage
party. After the party, they struggled to pay back and

Therefore

in order
to avoid unnecessary burden on your
marriage
.
Secondly
, large weddings are usually considered stressful and
time
consuming.
This
is because they usually require lots of planning to achieve a beautiful event.
For instance
, 60% of Nigerian weddings are usually done in a big
way
and due to the amount of
time
needed to plan the event, most couples end up being stressed up after their special day.
Therefore
, it is more advantageous to have a smaller wedding to reduce the planning
time
. In conclusion, I strongly believe that

should be done in a small
way
to reduce the money burden,
time
spent and stress caused
as a result
of the event.

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
