It is inevitable that traditional cultures will be lost as technology develops. Technology and traditional cultures are incompatible. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this view?

Some people
accept as true; take to be true
that technological developments lead to the loss of traditional culture. I partly agree with

technology and the modern world. On the one hand, the advances in technology that have driven industrialisation (yönlendiren) in developed countries have certainly

For example

Britain, generations of families grew up in the same small village communities. These communities had a strong sense of identity, due to their shared customs and beliefs.

led to the
the act of leaving secretly or without explanation
of big families and conventional communities as people moved to the cities in search of work. Nowadays, most British villages are inhabited by commuters, many of whom do not know their closest neighbours.
On the other hand

as farming communities in parts of Africa, are embracing communication technologies. Mobile phones give farmers access to information, from weather predictions to market prices, which

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


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
