Some people say that in all levels of education, from primary school to universities, too much time is spent on learning facts and not enough on learning practical skills. Do you agree or disagree?

With learning being a never-ending process for man, the methods employed by schools will always be questioned. A few persons believe that too much
time
is allocated to learning theory as opposed to acquiring practical
skills
. Others ,
however
, disagree.
this
essay will discuss why certain people disagree, but why I strongly agree that utmost importance is given to theoretical learning more than practical. 'you cannot practice what you have no idea about".
This
is the argument of most people. they believe that while practical
skills
are important, students need to spend more
time
learning about the theoretical aspects of everything.
For example
, would you want a doctor who does not know about a procedure carrying out surgery on you?
This
is why they encourage more reading
time
than practical classes.
However
, when you analyze and critically look at the teaching curriculum adopted by most schools, you would notice the
time
given to practicals, is just not enough. A child is at school for 8 hours a day, and only 45 minutes is spent in the
skills
lab.
For example
, a study was done using a Facebook poll, which asked young adults aged 18-25, if any of the subjects taught in school can be applied to real-life situations. about 80% disagreed and stated they wish they had been taught more life-applicable
skills
in school. In conclusion, given the fact that education is important to man, we must create enough
time
to teach practical
skills
while teaching theory in all levels of learning institutions.

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
