雅思写作真题分析

本题其实也是要求烤鸭们论证,到底该不该对老建筑进行重新修缮?因为重修老建筑需要花费很多钱,那么到底值不值得呢?这些钱是不是该用于建新的住房,或者新的道路呢?因此,这里还涉及一个小小的比较:到底老建筑重要,还是新的住房和道路更重要?

我们当然可以这样来论证本题:很多老的建筑物既危险,也影响城市面貌,因此完全没有必要重修,可以拆除它们,而节约下来的钱用于改善我们现实的住房和道路条件;但也有很多建筑物具有历史文化价值,是我们民族记忆的一部分,因此应该保留,花再多钱修缮都是值得的。这是两边论证的思路。

我们也可以这样来论证:老建筑物虽然有价值,但毕竟只是与生活无关的价值。我们现实生活中需要更好的住房条件和道路条件,这样才能使城市居民生活更幸福,更和谐。因此,用于修缮老建筑物的钱完全应该用于改善住房和道路条件。这是一边倒论证的思路。

本范文采取两边论证的结构。

雅思写作真题7分范文

Every city has old buildings. Every year the governments around the world spend large sums of money restoring them. Some people consider this a huge waste of money and they believe the governments’ budget should go to building new houses and roads, while others insist that the restoration of old buildings in cities is well worth the money.

There are a host of reasons why some urban old buildings should not be restored. To start with, the old buildings are no longer suitable for people to live in, therefore they should be destroyed and give way to new buildings so that people, especially young people in the cities have more living spaces. Secondly, the old buildings can cause inconveniences for the city dwellers. Since there is not a direct route through the old buildings, people sometimes have to go to and off work by making a long detour around them, and in this way much of their time is wasted. Finally, the old buildings may give rise to safety problems. More than 100 people, for example, are killed or injured each year in my city, just because of the collapse of some ancient buildings.

Yet old buildings - at least some of them - are significant historically and culturally, and hence should be restored for that reason. They carry some important messages about the city or even the whole nation. The Summer Palace, for instance, is a perfect reminder of how the imperial family in the Qing Dynasty in feudal China were living and so has great cultural significance. Such old buildings, if well preserved, can become tourist spots and attract thousands of visitors from around the globe.

We all need a memory of our past. Many old buildings do have historical and cultural value which tells us who we were. We need to take good care of these buildings and keep them as long as possible, however much money it may involve, so that they can tell the stories of the city or the nation to our future generations. Of course, the money squandered on those old buildings with little value should be used to solve more practical problems such as housing and traffic. (366 words)
