写作实例

The government’s investment in arts, music and theatre is a waste of money. Governments should invest these funds in public services instead.

To what extent do you agree with this statement?

This is a classic example of an IELTS Writing question that asks you to what extent you agree or disagree.

这是一篇关于政府投资方面的大作文,对于to what extent you agree/disagree类型问题,写作思路可参照如下:

AA: You completely agree (provide 2 ideas that strengthen the statement)
DD: You completely disagree (provide 2 ideas that weaken the statement)
AD: You agree or disagree partly (provide 1 idea that strengthens the statement and 1 idea that weakens it)

 

AA: Investment in arts, music and theatre is a waste of money

  • Art, music and theatre don’t help to solve urgent problems of the society

  • Art and music can develop as hobbies, and saved money can be directed towards urgent needs of the society

  • If artists and musicians were employed at more traditional jobs, there would be a great benefit for science and industry

DD: Investment in arts, music and theatre is NOT a waste of money

  • The arts and music preserve unique culture and heritage, passing nation’s cultural character and traditions to future generations

  • Arts, music and theatre are an integral part of the society’s cultural and intellectual development and amusement

  • A strong arts, music and theatre sector is an economic asset that creates new jobs and attracts tourism revenue

AD: Investment in arts is important, but public services should be financed in the first place

  • For this opinion, just combine ideas from the previous points.

  • For our essay, we’ll choose the last opinion – partially agree / disagree (AD).

我们选择AD,部分同意题目观点。

 

写作结构

  1. Introduction

  2. Body paragraph 1 – the 1st supporting point

  3. Body paragraph 2 – the 2nd supporting point

  4. Conclusion

 

1.Introduction

  • Write your introduction in two sentences:

  • Sentence 1 – paraphrase the statement (you can use ‘it is argued/considered/thought that’ to start):

  • It is often argued that the government should finance public services instead of spending its budget on arts, music and theatre.

  • Sentence 2 – give your opinion:

  • Although I agree that government’s investments in public services play a very important role, I think that proper funding of arts sector is also crucial for the society.

 

2.Body paragraph 1 – the 1st supporting point

  • Sentence 1 – state the first reason you agree/disagree.

  • This sentence should contain the main idea of the whole 1st paragraph. In our case we’ll use the reason A:

  • why it is important to finance public services. As we’ll be considering opposite opinions, it is a good idea to use a collocation on the one hand to introduce the first reason:

  • On the one hand, the government should definitely allocate a large part of its budget on public services.

  • Sentences 2-3 – explain the reason.

  • To explain the reason effectively, you can imagine that your examiner didn’t understand what you were talking about and you have to explain every detail:

  • This economic sector determines the overall quality of life, ensuring that some basic services, like schools, hospitals and roads, are available to all citizens irrespective of their income or social status. Public services satisfy the primary needs of the society and thus need a proper funding, while artists and musicians are not curing diseases or building houses, so their role is secondary.

  • Sentence 4 – example.

  • It’s always good to give examples in your body paragraphs, even if you’re not asked to do it (like in our case):

  • For example, any country can live without music concerts, but absence of medicine will create significant problems.

  • Sentence 5 – a short summary of your ideas in this paragraph:

  • That’s why the government should adequately finance public services in the first place.

 

3.Body paragraph 2 – the 2nd reason you agree/disagree

  • Sentence 1 – state the second reason you agree/disagree.

  • This statement should contain the main idea of the whole 2nd paragraph. This time we’ll use the reason D: why it is important to finance public services. As we are considering opposite opinions, it is a good idea to use a phrase on the other hand to introduce the second reason:

  • On the other hand, arts, music and theatre are not a waste of money, since they are an integral part of the society’s cultural and intellectual development and amusement.

  • Sentences 2-3 – explain the reason (assume that your examiner doesn’t understand the topic at all):

  • Firstly, art and music draw people’s attention to diverse phenomena and represent the inward significance of things. Quite often a single drawing, piece or song can exhort myriads of people to reconsider their attitude towards some situation. This way, art serves as a major source of nation’s personal and intellectual development. Moreover, visiting museums, watching movies and listening to music are common ways of relaxation and entertainment.

  • Sentence 4 – support your idea with an example:

  • The question doesn’t ask us to give examples, plus we’ve already written a lot in this paragraph, so we’ll skip this point.

  • Sentence 5 – a short summary of your thoughts in the 2nd paragraph.

  • Thus, art sector is also important for the society and should not be neglected.

 

4.Conclusion

  • You can write the conclusion in one sentence that summarizes your opinion + 2 reasons for it:

  • To conclude, though I agree that the government should allocate a large part of its budget on such urgent needs of the society like public services, I think that arts, music and theatre should also be financed since they play an important role in people’s development and entertainment.

  • DO NOT write new ideas in the conclusion!

 

范文

It is often argued that the government should finance public services instead of spending its budget on arts, music and theatre. Although I agree that government’s investments in public services play a very important role, I think that proper funding of arts sector is also crucial for the society.

人们常说,政府应该为公共服务提供资金,而不是把预算花在艺术、音乐和戏剧上。虽然我同意政府在公共服务方面的投资扮演非常重要的角色,但我认为对艺术部门的适当资助对社会也是至关重要的。

On the one hand, the government should definitely allocate a large part of its budget on public services. This economic sector determines the overall quality of life, ensuring that some basic services, like schools, hospitals and roads, are available to all citizens irrespective of their income or social status. Public services satisfy the primary needs of the society and thus need a proper funding, while artists and musicians are not curing diseases or building houses, so their role is secondary. For example, any country can live without music concerts, but absence of medicine will create significant problems. That’s why the government should adequately finance public services in the first place.

一方面,政府肯定应该在公共服务上分配一大部分预算。这一经济部门决定着生活的总体质量,确保所有公民不论其收入或社会地位怎样,都能获得一些基本服务,如学校、医院和道路。公共服务满足了社会的基本需求,需要适当的资金支持,而艺术家和音乐家并不是在治病,也不是在盖房子,所以他们的作用是次要的。例如,任何国家都可以在没有音乐会的情况下生存,但是没有药物将会造成严重的问题。这就是为什么政府应该首先为公共服务提供充足的资金。

On the other hand, arts, music and theatre are not a waste of money, since they are an integral part of the society’s cultural and intellectual development and amusement. Firstly, art and music draw people’s attention to diverse phenomena and represent the inward significance of things. Quite often a single drawing, piece or song can exhort myriads of people to reconsider their attitude towards some situation. This way, art serves as a major source of nation’s personal and intellectual development. Moreover, visiting museums, watching movies and listening to music are common ways of relaxation and entertainment. Thus, art sector is also important for the society and should not be neglected.

另一方面,艺术、音乐和戏剧并不是浪费钱,因为它们是社会文化和智力发展和娱乐的组成部分。首先,艺术和音乐吸引人们对各种现象的关注,代表事物的内在意义。常常,一幅画、一段或一首歌就能劝服无数人重新考虑他们对某些情况的态度。通过这种方式,艺术成为国家个人和智力发展的主要源泉。此外,参观博物馆,看电影和听音乐是放松和娱乐的常见方式。因此,艺术部门对社会也很重要,不容忽视。

To conclude, though I agree that the government should allocate a large part of its budget on such urgent needs of the society like public services, I think that arts, music and theatre should also be financed since they play an important role in people’s development and entertainment.

综上所述,虽然我同意政府应该将大部分预算分配给社会的紧急需求,如公共服务,但我认为艺术、音乐和戏剧也应该得到资助,因为它们在人们的发展和娱乐中扮演着重要的角色。
