Telling the truth at all times is not essential. On some occasions it is necessary to tell lies, and it is wrong to tell the truth. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?

Many
people
advocate that the
truth
should not be said all the time. Telling lies
instead
of reality is better on particular occasions. I would rather tell somebody the
truth
than lie so I disagree with the statement.
To begin
, many
people
hide behind white lies which means necessary lies to avoid hurting somebody by telling the
truth
.
However
, getting hurt by facing the
truth
or staying in the dark should be decided by the person who is about to hear lies.
In other words
, some
people
prefer honesty even forthcoming pain just after. Others protect themselves by rejecting reality.
Therefore
, it is not anybody's call to determine whether to say the
truth
or not. Even if the intention of the lie is well-meaning, it will not make any difference when the
truth
came out.
Furthermore
, lies only cover the truths for a while and the price which a liar has to pay is a broken trust between
people
.
However
, the values of
people
are measured by their honesty and sincerity in all environments.
For instance
, providing that you knew as an employer your employee lied to you and told you he was sick so as to take a day off. He did that to protect his job whether he really needed a day or not. The fact that he is a liar, decreases your level of reliance on him. Most likely, when he will need a sick day, he would probably get fired as a consequence of his former behaviours. To put it simply, even though the intentions are sincere, telling the fact
instead
of lies should be considered essential, not vice versa.

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
