IELTS Essay Sample: There are many different types of music in the world today. Why do we need music? Is the traditional music of a country more important than the International music that is heard everywhere nowadays?
It is a general truth that there is a large range of types of music in the world today. From religious music to hard rock, every type of music plays an important role in people's life. People need music because music helps them express, it entertains and is important for development and culture.
Music is an art that helps people express themselves. Music is called the universal language that unite people around the world. Music can express a wide range of feelings and emotions from peace and harmony to anger and chaos. Therefore, music is very different. For example classical music is very different and we could say that it express opposite feelings than metal rock.
Music helps people entertaining and you can hear it everywhere on TV, radio, pubs, clubs and even workplaces. Music helps people relaxing and forget about the quotidian problems. Moreover, there are people claiming to better concentrate at work and study when hearing music.
Music plays a very important role in both, the individual development and the development of a group's culture. Children learn music at school as a subject and they also listen to music at home. All cultures have traditional songs and anthems. For example the national anthems are official songs which represent countries and they are played on public occasions.
I think that various genders of music cannot be compared because they are very different and express different things. The traditional music of a country is very important for its people and it should be preserved as the International music has its importance.
IELTS Essay: Sample and Planning. Topic: News editors decide what to broadcast on television and what to print in newspapers. What factors do you think influence these decisions? Do we become used to bad news? Would it be better if more good news was reported?
The news editors decide what to broadcast on television and what to print in newspapers. However, there are more bad news than good news. The reasons for delivering more bad news than good news could be that bad news sell better, keeping up with trends or maybe people are not interested in good news.
There is no doubt that bad news sell better than good news. This could be because the bad news are more exciting, they have details that intrigue, they raise a lot of questions and we always can find somebody or something to put the blame on. For example news about a school on fire sell better than news about the inauguration of a new school and a divorce in showbiz sells better than a new marriage in showbiz. Moreover, the news about terrorism could sell millions of newspapers.
The news editors like to keep up with the trends and the today's trends are broadcasting and printing more bad news than good news. I don't think the trend was ever different but I hope the trends will change as people's mentality changes.
Another reason for delivering more bad news than good news can be the fact that the majority of people are not interested in good news. People are facing lots of problems in their everyday life and they are not completely satisfied in their life. Therefore people are predisposed to pessimism and negative thinking. Also, seeing other people facing problems, often bigger than their own problems, gives them a feeling of consolation.
I think we did become used with bad news, and moreover we started to enjoy them. There are only a very few people who choose not to watch bad news. I think bad news produce dependence and influence people to think negatively. It would definitely be better if more good news was reported.
