Dàn bài

Paraphrase: shows>compares; percentage>proportion; rode bicycles>cycled
Overview paragraph: (1) a higher percentage of females – all ages – than males
rode bicycles (2) between 18 and 59, the figures for cyclists – both genders - were
lower than for other age groups.
Paragraph 3: compare proportions of males and females who cycled in the age
groups 0-9 and 10-17.
Paragraph 4: compare declining percentages of males and females who rode
bicycles in the 18-59 age groups.
Paragraph 5: contrast the rise in the figures for cyclists aged 60+.

Bài làm:

The table compares the proportion of the population of one town who cycled in 2011,
according to five age groups.
Overall, it is clear that in all the age groups, the percentage of female cyclists was higher
than male cyclists. However, for both genders, the proportion of the population who rode
bicycles was lowest between the ages of 18 and 59.
Just over half of all females and males rode bicycles in the age group 0-9, and this
proportion remained high among 10-17 year old girls, at about 42%.However, among
boys aged 10-17, the percentage who cycled declined by over half to less than 25%.
The figures for the 18-39 and 40-59 year olds are much lower. In the former age group,
only about 17% of women cycled, compared with just under 10% of men. Between the
ages of 40 and 59, the figures fell further, to a little over 12% for women and 8 per cent
for men.
However, the percentage of those over 60 who rode bicycles then rose significantly,
reaching 18.5% for women compared with around 13% for men.

Task 2: Scientific research should be carried out and controlled by the governments rather than private companies. Do you agree or disagree?

Dàn Bài :

Introduction: (1) refer to the statement (2) opinion: recognize the arguments for the opposing view, but agree with the statement

Paragraph 2: two dangers of private conduct of research (1) results may be flawed, due to profit motive – example, thalidomide (malformed births) (2) ethical – social consequences of research are not prioritized – example, GM crops.

Paragraph 3: governments should control research (1) universities can conduct high-quality research and share knowledge (2) expenditure on areas of research can be prioritized – example: renewable energy.

Conclusion: agree with the statement.

Bài làm:

At present, scientific research across the world is carried out and controlled sometimes by governments, sometimes by private companies. While there are some arguments in favour of scientific research by corporations, I agree with the view that this should be funded and supervised by the state.

The private sector argues that it is willing to undertake scientific research, but there are two significant dangers in this. In terms of the quality and objectivity of the research itself, corporations which carry this out may be tempted to manipulate results in order to maximize profits. There have been numerous scandals as a result of new products being introduced hurriedly after inadequate trials. For example thalidomide, developed by a German drug company, resulted in the birth of thousands of malformed children. From an ethical perspective, leaving research into areas such as genetic engineering in the hands of corporations may have profound social consequences –such as GM crops, with unproven effects which may destroy whole ecosystems as a result of meddling with nature.

Although governments have to allocate resources to many areas of public spending, it is essential that they be responsible for scientific research. Firstly, the highest standards can be set by providing funding for university departments to carry out high-quality research designed to benefit society, not to break into new markets or to gain a competitive edge. Knowledge thus gained can be shared worldwide throughout the academic community. Secondly, government-decision making is the best way to prioritize expenditure on specific areas of research, taking into consideration the needs of society, both present and future. One example is the development of renewable energy to meet growing demands.

In conclusion, I agree strongly with the view that governments should bear sole responsibility for scientific research.

Task 1:Mixed charts (Table + Pie chart)

Đề thi ngày 3/2/2018

Dàn bài

Paraphrase: gives details about>shows, illustrates; spending>expenditure. Write one sentence for each type of diagram.

Summary/overview paragraph: (1) total family income fell (2) percentage spent on fruits and vegetables rose significantly in 2013.

Paragraph 3: total household income fell; proportion spent on food and clothes rose (see the table).

Paragraph 4: Compare spending on clothes (% falls) with spending on fruits and vegetables/dairy products (% increases).

Paragraph 5: Compare spending on ‘other food and drink’ (stable) and meat and fish (% decreases).

Bài làm

The table shows total family income per household in a UK city in 2010 and 2013, together with specific expenditure on food and clothes. The pie chart illustrates how spending on food and clothes was broken down into 5 categories.

Overall, it is clear that total income fell in 2013, whereas spending on food and clothes increased from the 2010 figure. The proportion spent on fruits and vegetables rose sharply in 2013.

Total household income saw a significant fall, from £29,000 in 2010 to £25,000 in 2013. Despite this overall decline, expenditure on food and clothes rose by £1000, to reach £15,000 by 2013.

Taking this expenditure on food and clothes, the proportion spent on clothes decreased from 22% in 2010 to 12% in 2013. In terms of spending on food, there was a notable increase in the figure for fruits and vegetables, from 20% to 35%. The proportion spent on dairy products also rose, reaching 20% in 2013.

In contrast, while the percentage spent on other food and drink remained the same at 18%, the figure for spending on meat and fish fell significantly from 25% in 2010 to 15% in 2013

Task 2: The only way to improve safety of our roads is to give much stricter punishments for driving offences. What extent do you agree or disagree?

Dàn bài

Introduction: stricter punishments are necessary. They are not the only way to improve road safety – there are other effective measures. So, disagree with the statement.

Paragraph 2: stricter punishments will be effective – motoring offenses are crimes. Non-custodial sentences – heavy fines, driving bans. Prison sentences – serious offences e.g. drinking and driving (UK example).

Paragraph 3: additional measures (1) install speed cameras (2) traffic calming (3) vehicle inspections.

Conclusion: repeat opinion that harsher penalties and other measures are necessary.

Bài làm

It is true that stricter punishments will deter many motorists from driving dangerously or carelessly on the roads. However, I strongly disagree that this is the only way to improve road safety, because there are alternative measures which would also be effective.

Stricter punishments will undoubtedly act as a deterrent, so that motorists will think twice before committing traffic offenses. It is often forgotten that motoring offenses are, in fact, crimes. The full weight of the law should be applied in imposing a range of non-custodial sentences, such as heavy fines, and the confiscation of driving licences. The letter of the law must be strictly implemented, banning offenders from the roads so they will no longer pose a danger to other road-users, including pedestrians. Those who drive while intoxicated should serve a prison sentence, as is sometimes imposed in the UK, because they endanger innocent lives.

While harsh penalties for offenders should be high on the government agenda, there are other steps which national and local authorities should take to improve road safety. Firstly, installing speed cameras has made drivers aware of the need to adhere to speed limits. Many authorities around the world have adopted this very cost-effective measure. Secondly, traffic calming measures have succeeded in reducing the number of accidents, especially in built-up areas. Finally, it is necessary to adopt a policy of conducting regular vehicle inspections, at authorised centres, to avoid accidents caused by mechanical failures.

In conclusion, in order to improve road safety, it is not enough to be tough on traffic crimes by punishing more harshly those who violate the law. A range of road safety measures should accompany harsher driving penalties.

Dàn bài

Paraphrase: shows>compares; annual>yearly; pay>salary; seven countries> several countries

Summary/Overview paragraph:(1) pay of US doctors higher than in the other countries (2) doctors earned more than other workers

Paragraph 3: doctors: contrast US (highest earnings) and Finland (lowest earnings). France & Switzerland – same salary – higher than Italy, Czech Republic, Germany.

Paragraph 4: other workers: lower pay than doctors. Compare the US and Switzerland (highest), next France and Finland, then Italy, Czech Republic and Germany with the same figure.

Bài làm

The bar chart compares the yearly salary of doctors and other workers in several countries in the year 2004.

Overall, it is clear that the pay of US doctors was much higher than that of doctors in the other countries. In each country, the annual salary of doctors was far higher than that of other workers.

The annual pay of doctors in the US was $120,000, whereas in Finland doctors received a comparatively low yearly salary of $50,000. In France, and Switzerland doctors earned $70,000 per year, compared with around $60,000 annually in Italy, Germany and the Czech Republic.

In contrast, the annual wages of other workers were much lower, at about $45,000 and $40,000 in the US and Switzerland, respectively. Other workers in France earned $30,000, a little more than other workers in Finland, who had an annual salary of $25,000. The lowest annual earnings were for other workers in Italy, Germany and the Czech Republic, at exactly $20,000.

Task 2: Some people think that newly built houses should follow the style of old houses in local areas. Others think that people should have freedom to build houses of their own style. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.

Dàn bài

Introduction: refer to both views. Agree with the first view.

Paragraph 2: modern view: (1) individuals should choose their modern house style if they wish (2) costs of traditional construction make old style housing too expensive.

Paragraph 3: traditional view: (1) preserve cultural heritage (2) mixing modern architectural styles is an eyesore.

Conclusion: modern housing developments must respect the existing architecture of an area.

Bài làm

While some people believe that new houses should be constructed in the same style as the more traditional houses in the locality, others contend that everyone should be free to choose their own style of house. I agree with the view that new housing should follow the traditional architecture of the area.

On the one hand, there are some who argue that it is essential to welcome change and allow individuals to have the right to live in a modern style of house, if they so wish, irrespective of the locality. They also tend to dismiss traditional ideas on terms of building costs. Traditional construction materials, like natural stone from local quarries, are difficult to obtain and very expensive even if they are available, whereas new houses are built using more affordable materials. The maintenance costs of houses constructed in the old way also tend to be higher compared with their modern counterparts. Wood, for example, is nowadays commonly replaced by aluminium or plastic materials in house construction.

On the other hand, there are strong arguments that new houses should adopt the existing architectural style of a local area. In terms of the tangible cultural heritage of a small town or village, traditional houses possess character and they give a strong sense of identity to the locality. Buildings which have historical significance provide a link to our roots, while a modern estate designed by property developers is certain to be incompatible with historical connections. From an architectural perspective, modern houses alongside traditional dwellings are an eyesore. They fail to blend in with the housing which has grown organically, perhaps during centuries.

In conclusion, though it may be more costly, the traditional architecture of localities should be respected by modern housing developments.v

-to welcome change:một sự thay đổi

Dàn bài

Paraphrase: shows>illustrates; the amount of money>how much money; given>donated; from 2006 to 2010>in the period 2006 to 2010.

Summary/overview paragraph: (1) total aid increased (2) US charities gave most money.

Paragraph 3: trend for total aid; share of total aid from US charities.

Paragraph 4: compare trends for aid from EU and Other Countries.

Bài làm

The table illustrates how much money was donated to developing countries in the period 2006-2010, by US and EU charities, to support technological development.
Overall, it is clear that total aid increased during this period. US aid was considerably higher than that from other donor countries.
There was a significant increase in the total aid given, from $15.7 billion in 2006 to $24.3 billion in 2009, rising sharply to $30 billion in the following year. US charities provided most of this money, with a rise in aid each year from $9.7 billion in 2006 to reach a peak of $22.7 billion in 2010.
However, contributions from other charities also increased. In EU countries, charities gave $3.3 billion in 2006 and then aid grew slowly to $3.8 billion in 2008, followed by a slight fall in the next year, before rising again to reach $4 billion at the end of the period. Charities in other countries also provided increasing aid. Despite a similar fluctuation to EU charities in the amount given each year, donations went up from $2.7 billion in 2006 to reach $3.3 billion in 2010.

Task 2: When designing a building, the most important factor is intended use of the building rather than its outward appearance. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

    Dàn bài

    Introduction: refer to the statement – many people believe this. Disagree.
    Paragraph 2: function is important. (1) shops – big glass windows are ugly, but they are necessary to attract customers (2) housing – high-rise apartments are ugly, but they are the only solution to provide housing in city centres.
    Paragraph 3: outward appearance can be combined with function in some cases. (1) Sometimes it is not possible (e.g. multi-storey car parks). (2) historic buildings show, however, that it is often possible to combine function and beauty – eg. Paris.
    Conclusion: in design, the function and appearance of buildings is equally important.

    Bài làm

    Many people consider that the function of a building should be the primary consideration at the design stage. The appearance of the building from the outside is a relatively unimportant factor. While a building must serve its intended purpose, I disagree that this is necessarily the most important factor in the design.
    The intended purpose of a building is, of course, very important. In terms of commercial design, most shop facades, for example, have large glass windows, so that passers-by will be attracted by the goods on display. This is essential for the purpose of sales, although these shop fronts are an eyesore, and do not blend in with the conservation of historic buildings of which they often form an ugly part. From the perspective of housing design, the population density in many cities is extremely high, and exorbitant rents are charged for land. In order to make city living affordable, hideous high-rise buildings are the only solution to provide apartments for urban dwellers.
    The design of buildings to serve a specific function, however, does not mean that their aesthetic qualities should be ignored. In some countries, there has been a recent revival of interest in the architectural design of buildings. Although the construction of ugly utilitarian structures like multi-storey car parks is an inevitable consequence of modern living, new or renovated houses, shops and offices can combine pleasing design with their useful function. The centres of cities like Paris show that it is possible for historic buildings to possess character, which is not incompatible with their commercial purposes as stores, offices and apartments.
    In conclusion, I believe that the outward appearance is just as important for planners and architects to consider as the function of buildings.

    Vocabulary

    -be an eyesore:mất mỹ quan

    -population density: mật độ dân số

    -aesthetic qualities:chất lượng thẩm mỹ

    Summary/overview paragraph: (1) highest percentage – food industry (2) service industry – percentage of total water use almost doubled

    Paragraph 3: decline of water use in 3 sectors – compare the food industry, manufacturing and building, give figures

    Paragraph 4: contrast the increase in water use in the other sectors – households and service industry, give figures.

    Bài làm

    The pie charts compare the water usage of various sectors of the economy in Sydney, in two years – 1997 and 2007.
    Overall, it is clear that the sector which used the highest percentage of water was the food industry. The percentage of total water use by the service industry sector in 2007 was almost double the figure for 1997.
    The proportion of total water use fell in three sectors in 2007, compared with the year 1997. The food industry accounted for 48% of all water usage in 1997, but only 41% in 2007. Manufacturing and the building industry also witnessed a decrease in the percentage of water used, falling to 11% and 2%, respectively, of total water usage in 2007.
    By contrast, there was an increase in the proportion of total water use in the other two sectors. The water used by the service sector rose from 13% in 1997 to 25% of the total in 2007. Household use increased slightly to reach 21% of the total in 2007.

    Task 2: The media should include more stories which report good news. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

    Dàn bài

    Introduction: refer to the opinion. Partly agree.

    Paragraph 2: agree with more reporting of good news. Positive impact on public morale – example, new cancer treatments

    Paragraph 3: tragic news must still be fully covered by the media. (1) people should know about civil wars, natural disasters (2) e.g. environmental issues – there is more bad news to report than good news. Media must act as a watchdog.

    Conclusion: more publicity for positive messages; full coverage must continue for reporting bad news.

    Bài làm

    It is sometimes argued that news coverage should focus more on good news. While I partly agree with this view, I also consider that bad news should continue to be reported when necessary. There is a good case for believing that good news is under-reported. It is rare to read a positive story which makes front page headlines. Yet it is surely essential that the public are kept informed about some of the good things which are happening in the world. In recent years, for example, breakthroughs have been achieved in the treatment of certain types of cancer. It should form part of editorial policy to carry stories such as these, because they have a positive impact on public morale. However, it would be misguided to introduce restrictions on the reporting of tragic news events. Civil wars and natural disasters, for example, may sadden viewers and readers, but they are an unfortunate reality of the world today. While sensational journalism may at times exaggerate, it is important for the public to keep abreast of these happenings in order to have some informed knowledge of contemporary issues. Sadly, for instance, there is relatively little good news to report on the host of environmental issues facing the world. If these problems are ignored by the media, in the interests of reporting cheerful news, then the chances will surely increase of an ecological crisis. The media must act as watchdogs in the fight against climate change and environmental degradation. In conclusion, while I agree that important positive messages should be given more publicity, it is also necessary for the media to continue reporting all the significant bad news in the world today.

    Summary/overview paragraph: (1) the total amount of air pollutants fell (2) the most significant fall was from industry

    Paragraph 3: describe total trend –figures for 1990, 1999 and 2005

    Paragraph 4: compares figures from the 3 sources, giving figures for 1990, 2005.

    Bài làm

    The line graph illustrates data on 3 sources of air pollutants in the UK during the period 1990 to 2005.
    Overall, it is clear that the total amount of pollutants in the air decreased between these years. The decline in air pollutants from industrial sources was particularly significant.
    In 1990, the total amount of air pollutants in the UK was 7 million tonnes. This figure fell sharply to 4 million tonnes in 1999, and then continued to decline to just over 3 million tonnes by the end of the period.
    Industry accounted for 5.5 million tonnes of air pollutants in 1990. There was then a decrease throughout this period to a figure of 2 million tonnes by 2005, with a particularly sharp fall between 1993 and 1996. In contrast, the amount of air pollutants was much lower from transport and household sources. Air pollution from transport remained relatively constant at about 1 million tonnes from 1990 to 2005, whereas air pollutants from households saw a decrease from almost 1 million tonnes in 1990 to approximately 0.1 million tonnes by 2005.

    Task 2: Many university students live with their families while others live away from home because their universities are in different places. What are the advantages and disadvantages both situations

    Dàn bài

    Introduction: refer to the statement. State that there are advantages and disadvantages.
    Paragraph 2: living with families (1) advantage – economize on accommodation (2) advantage – enjoy family support: meals, heating costs, room-sharing (3) disadvantage – too many distractions may harm studies
    Paragraph 3: (1) disadvantage – high cost of accommodation (2) advantage – easier to make study routines and to interact with fellow students.
    Conclusion: personal circumstances differ, but we can identify advantages and disadvantages of both situations.

    Bài làm

    It is true that, although some university students are able to live with their families while studying in their home town, others are forced to live away from home in order to pursue their studies. There are advantages and disadvantages of both these situations.
    If university students are able to live with their families, there are both benefits and drawbacks. Firstly, one major advantage is that they are able to economize, since they do not have to pay for accommodation. Secondly, they enjoy family support in terms of sharing meals, heating costs, possibly even sharing a room with a brother or sister. However, the home situation may also have its disadvantages. Family routines are often disruptive for students who have to concentrate on their studies in a quiet atmosphere. Without a dedicated space in which to study, for example in the evenings or at weekends, it is hard to keep up with a study schedule.
    On the other hand, when students live away from home, they also face challenges. One disadvantage is having to find accommodation. Universities are often located in major urban centres, where rents are high if students have to find a room with even the basic facilities. However, there are benefits of learning to study independently in another city. Students are able to escape the distractions of family life, and thereby establish study routines and form friendships with other students who find themselves in the same situation. These factors may help them in their studies.
    In conclusion, while there will clearly be differences in the personal circumstances of individual university students, some potential advantages and disadvantages of living at home or away from home can be identified.

    Overview/summary paragraph: (1) % increased in all age groups over this period (2) the highest percentage in the 55-64 age group
    Paragraph 3: compare the percentages in 1850 and 1900, give some supporting figures
    Paragraph 4: 1950: the percentages rise according to age group. (Give no figures). 2000: compare final figures for each age group (give all figures).

    Bài làm

    The chart compares the proportion of US citizens living alone from 1850 to 2000 in terms of various age groups.
    Overall, it is clear that the percentage of the US population living alone increased over the period in all age groups. The highest proportion of those who lived alone was among the 55-64 year-olds.
    In 1850, figures for three age groups are given. Just over 2% of those aged 37-46 and those aged 47-54 lived alone, slightly less than 3% for the 55-64 age group. In 1900 the proportion of those living alone in the 37-46 category remained stable, but there were small increases in the figures for the 47–54 and 55-64 year-olds, compared with only 2% of those aged 17-26.
    A new pattern emerged in 1950, with the percentage of those living alone increasing according to age. The year 2000 then saw a rise in the proportions of people living alone, with the percentage of the 55 -64 year olds almost doubling to 17%, ahead of the 47-54 and 27-36 age groups with 13% and 8% respectively. While 5% of the 17-26 group lived alone, the figure was higher among the 37-46 year-olds at 7%.

    Task 2 : Some people say that economic growth is the only way to end world poverty and hunger. Others say that economic growth is damaging the environment and should stop .Discuss bọth views and give your own opinion.

    Dàn bài

    Introduction: (1) refer to the first view (2) refer to the second view (3) my opinion – completely agree with the second view.
    Paragraph 2: the first view – one main argument: progress and economic development is the only way to cure hunger and poverty, because the wealth from profits will find its way into the pockets of the poor. The argument made for imperialism.
    Paragraph 3: the second view – many examples to support it. (1) Deforestation to produce cash crops for export (2) fossil fuels used for economic growth….global warming….sea level rise….homeless poor in Bangladesh.

    Conclusion: economic growth which is not sustainable must be stopped. Production for human need, not profits, is the way forward.

    Bài làm

    It is true that some people contend that economic growth is the only solution to the global problems of hunger and poverty. Others, however, argue for an end to economic growth in order to conserve our environment. I agree completely with this second view.
    Those who see economic growth alone as the sole cure for the tragedy of world hunger and poverty propose one major argument. Only the growth of the economies of the developing countries will provide the poor with the wealth to afford the basic necessities of life. The profits made by corporations who are responsible for this economic growth will trickle down in the form of financial benefits to be enjoyed by the starving and needy. This view has justified the age of imperialism and the destruction of the livelihood of millions in the name of progress.
    On the other hand, there are countless examples to support the opposing view that economic growth results in environmental destruction. Firstly, this is true for developing countries, where lowland rainforests have been cleared and unsustainable agricultural practices introduced to produce cash crops, often for export. Secondly, it is also true for developed economies. For example, the continued use of fossil fuels, which provide the energy for growing industrialisation, is causing global warming. This is leading to a rise in sea levels, which will eventually make tens of millions of poor people in Bangladesh homeless.
    In conclusion, economic growth which is not sustainable must be stopped. If it is not based on meeting human needs rather than generating profits, such growth will only create more poverty and lead to more hunger in the world by destroying natural resources.

    Bài làm

    The line graph compares three capital cities in terms of the number of international conferences hosted between 1980 and 2010.
    Overall, it is clear that the number of international conferences in City A and City B declined over this period. In contrast, in City C the number of such conferences saw a rapid increase until the year 2000.
    In 1980, there were 35 international conferences in City A, compared with 30 in City B. Despite similar fluctuations, these figures then decreased overall, until in 2005 both cities hosted 27 conferences. By 2010, conferences in City B had overtaken the number in City A, with 26 and 24 international conferences respectively.
    City C held no international conferences in 1980. However, it was the venue for 20 conferences in 1990, and by the year 2000 this figure had risen dramatically to 35. The number then remained higher than in the other two cities, although it fell slightly to 31 conferences by the end of the period.

    Task 2: In the modern world it is possible to shop, work and communicate with people via internet and live without any face-to-face contact with others. Is it a positive or negative development in your opinion?

    Dàn bài

    Introduction: (1) refer to the statement in the question (2) state that you think there are both positive and negative aspects of this trend
    Paragraph 2: the internet is useful (1) friends - easy to keep in touch (2) shopping – save time and petrol, look for bargains online (3) work – own working hours, avoid commuting
    Paragraph 3: people need face-to-face contact (1) false virtual friendships – e.g. paedophiles (2) clothes, books – better to buy in shops (3) work – personal contact with colleagues – creativity, avoid misunderstandings
    Conclusion: there are both positive and negative aspects.

    Bài làm

    It is true that in contemporary life people in many parts of the world are able to do their shopping, work and communicate with each other via the internet. While there are clear positive aspects of this trend, there are also negative aspects of having less face-to-face contact with other people.

    On the one hand, the internet can be very handy in many ways. Many people use it to keep in touch with friends and family, using Facebook, Skype or What’s App to send instant messages or to enjoy a quick chat. Many also use the internet for online shopping, thus saving time and petrol on trips to the supermarket as well as hunting around different sites for bargains. However, it is in terms of work that the internet offers the most potential benefits. More and more people are working or even studying from home, at hours which suit their own schedules. Many hours are saved each week by eliminating the daily commute and the stress of coping with the rush hour.

    On the other hand, as social beings, people need personal contacts. Firstly, virtual friendships which are formed online may not be genuine. The media carries many horror stories of youngsters who have fallen prey to paedophiles, for example. Secondly, online shopping is not always appropriate, depending on the item. It is best, for instance, to try on clothes before buying, and while a bookworm can find almost any book title that they want online, they will certainly miss browsing the shelves of bookstores. Finally, personal interaction with work colleagues can generate ideas and avoid misunderstandings.

    In conclusion, although there are positive aspects of this trend, there are also aspects of face-to-face contact which it would be a shame to lose.
