Mass Media
Mass media plays a pivotal role in our life. Many people and businesses rely on
these mediums for their day to day transactions. On the flip-side it also bombards
us with too much or unwanted information. This essay will shed a light on various
aspects of this issue.Newspapers, radio, television, and the Internetincluding e-
mail and blogsare significantly influential on our society, especially in affirming
attitudes and opinions that are already established. The news media focus the
publics attention on certain personalities and issues, leading many people to form
opinions about them
Mass media sets the news agenda, which shapes the public's views on what is
newsworthy and important. It is a system used by advertisement agencies and
media outlets, such as television channels and radio stations to "convince" their
audiences to do or act in a certain way. It appeals to the vulnerability of the desired
target. For instance famous person or persons who are recognized, admired by
whole communities. These individuals have the "Power" to convince their followers
or fans into taking any kind of action or decision. Therefore, these famous people
usually are linked or work for some media outlet and are used, to influence the
community accordingly.

The media has changed significantly in the past years. Because of the availability
of television and radio all populations and classes have been exposed to various
types of media. The Internet has provided an even newer media resource. The
majority of people live in a very fast paced society. They have very little time for
reading and exploring the truth of information. The producers of media publication
are aware of this and use the media to influence public choice and opinion. The
problem lies in that many people are gullible and society as a whole is easily
influenced by the media representations. The media also responds to public
demand and provides the information that the public craves.

A positive aspect of the medias bias has been that it has facilitated change in
peoples perception of races in a positive manner, exposed people to other cultures,
made people aware of environmental needs, and the needs of people far
away. While there can also be negative implications the media also has to reflect
the publics point of view. With the growing representation of Hispanics, African
Americans, and other minority groups, the media is under pressure to present them
in a more positive light.

Climate Change/Global Warming

Since last few decades climate change is afflicting our planet severely. What really
is the proper role for individuals and institutions in addressing climate change? An
immediate and natural response may be that everyone should do their part. Yes it's
is the duty of the government, companies, and individuals to reduce carbon
emission to save the planet. This essay will outline the role of each party in
combating climate change.
First as individual, we must significantly reduce the amount of heat-trapping
emission we are putting into the atmosphere. For example use of public transport
instead of car or bike to commute to office regularly by which we can save our own
money and reduction in carbon dioxide emission.
Second the institutions or the company decisions affecting carbon dioxide (CO2)
emissions, for example, decisions by companies about how to produce electricity, as
well as thousands of other goods and services with less carbon emission.
Third and last to fully address the threat of global warming, we must demand action
from our elected leaders to support and implement a comprehensive set of climate
solutions: such as, expand the use of renewable energy and transform our energy
system to a cleaner one. Place limits on the amount of carbon that polluters are
allowed to emit. Build a clean energy economy by investing in efficient energy
technologies, industries, and approaches. For example, increasing in solar energy
plants and decrease in thermal power generation. Reduce tropical deforestation
and its associated global warming emissions.

Finally to conclude it is everybody responsibility to control the global warming to

give better future to our next generation.

Do you think consumers should avoid over packaged products or is it the

responsibility of producers? (Discussion Essay)

A matter of considerable controversy at present is the issue of whether it is the

responsibility of consumers to avoid the over-packaged products. Some people
maintain that the producers are the ones who should be held responsible for this
matter. Both sides of this contentious issue will be put under scrutiny in this essay,
and my opinion as to which holds more weight will be given.

To begin with, I will now consider what I hold to be the causes of this phenomenon.
Packaging ensures that people can buy and use products when they want them, in
good condition and with little wastage. However, it is undeniable that some goods
have too much packaging. Moreover, the packaged goods industry is highly
competitive, and packaging manufacturers are under pressure to come up with new
and better packaging solutions to compete in their market. The more resources the
packaging needs, the higher the cost of the products and eventually, consumers will
have to bear that extra cost.

From consumers perspective, the packaging does not really matter for most buyers
as what they care about is the quality and the price of the products. From a
personal experience, I am not really concerned how the packaging actually looks as
long as the item that I am purchasing is what I need. In addition, it is worth pointing
out that the packaging will be a waste of money and investment no matter how
good or how thick it is if the quality of the product does not meet the requirement of
the consumers.

Taking these points into consideration, from a personal perspective, I am inclined to

believe that manufacturers are more responsible to avoid over-packaging the goods
as it would be wasting the consumers money for no practical benefits.
Many people think that regions affect successful person. What is your
opinion about native region and accomplished persons influence on the
region he belongs to
Whether one's success is very much dependent on his or her native regions is a
debatable topic. This essay will express complete disagreement with this statement
and will offer reasons for this viewpoint.

To begin with, a variety of reasons can be offered to explain why I am not in favour
of this. Foremost among these, I believe that achieving success in life depends on
many factors such as determination, discipline, clear visions of your goals and
ambitions, motivation and most importantly hard work. Moreover, support from
friends and family around you would also play an important part in your journey to
success. Although there is no doubt that being in a good and cohesive environment
is beneficial, a person who is disciplined and determined to achieve his goals will
find ways to his success no matter where they are.
Firstly to accomplish anything in life required immense hard work and commitment.
Success means earning respectable position, monetary gains and secured future.
Industrious as a key has a lion's share in achieving success and remarkable position
in the society. Moreover, people those who have marked themselves as examples
for others have burnt the midnight oil for reaching at desired positions. To illustrate,
people like, Bill Gates, Ratan Tata, APJ Abdul Kalam and list goes other eminent
personalities are the perfect cases of successful leaders in their respective fields.
To wrap up, the connection between people belong to native regions and
accomplished forks have a very small or trivial effect in overall success stories of
any person. Basic fundamentals will remain static and identical to earn respectable
position in this universe.

Companys top level authorities should get their employees in decision

making process. Discuss
Decision making is a crucial step in the success of a company. The moot question
is that whether involvement of employees is required for the decision making
The solid foundation of any successful company is its people. Employees represent
a source of knowledge and ideas, but oftentimes that resource remains untapped.
Involving employees in the decision-making process not only empowers them to
contribute to the success of an organization, but also saves the company time and
money. It also increases productivity and reduces outsourcing.
Improving Morale-Actively engaging workers in the decision-making process
increases overall company morale. Employees understand that their ideas are an
important contribution to the company, and give them the power to influence the
innovative outcome of their work, leading to increased job satisfaction and a
positive attitude.
Internal Resources-Using employees in the decision-making process, rather than
outsourcing, saves money, time, and offers the company long-term reliable
assistance from those who know the corporation well.
Teamwork-Participation in the decision-making process gives each employee the
opportunity to voice their opinions, and to share their knowledge with others. While
this improves the relationship between manager and employee, it also encourages
a strong sense of teamwork among workers.
Innovations and ideas is something which has brought us to this technologically
developed world. Perhaps, it has been accepted by all by now. Organization can only
flourish well where its employees are given the freedom to innovate and rewarded
for the same. Top level management should be smart enough to judge its
plausibility of implementation, as the final decision has to be taken by them.
Some people think law changes our behaviour. Discuss.
Everyone knows that laws are the rules laid by the government on the citizens of
their respective country. It helps in smooth functioning of the nation by governing
the behaviour of people. It is disagreed that laws can change behaviour of a person.
It can only assist in creating a disciplined environment for the society and
controlling the crime to some extend but not eliminating it.
Firstly, imposing laws has created a sense of fear among people of getting
punished. For instance, damaging the historical monuments, books, paintings,
sculptures or other form of art is considered a crime and is punishable under
vandalism law. This example shows that a person with moral responsibility will take
care of others assets but a person who is not worried about the consequences will
deface them. Thus, we can say that humans action can be regulated by laws but
cannot be changed completely.
In addition, in our day to day life, we follow rules without even realizing them. Traffic
law is an example of this. Today, most of us follow the traffic signals out of habit. We
stop at a red light, start an indicator before a turn and wear seat belt when we are
on road. Thus, we can say that laws embed some changes in human behaviour to
some extent. However, we are still facing road-accidents which clearly show that
rules and regulations have controlled the behaviour of mankind without altering
them completely.
In conclusion, we can say that rules and regulations can help in controlling the
behaviour that is dangerous. Laws not only help in checking the reckless nature of
people but are necessary for the development of society.

Pros and Cons of extreme/adventure sports. Or Dangerous activities like

extreme skiing, bungee jumping etc. and whether u support them or not.
The popularity of extreme sports has continued to grow over the last decade. These
activities are undertaken at high speed, high altitude, and high degree of physical
exertion. It is agreed that no amount of words are adequate to convey the thrill of
skiing, deep sea diving, bungee jumping, water rafting or any other adventure sport.
This argument can be proven by looking at how these kinds of sports teach self-
reliance, teamwork and let everyone leave their comfort zone.
Firstly, the risk-taking sports help in development of self-confidence and
independence. For instance, by successfully facing up the challenge of adventurous
sports like rock-climbing, young people overcome their fears and apprehensions
along the way and develop a feeling of unusual accomplishment. This makes it clear
that climbing mountain, instead of an indoor game, helps in developing the balance,
using more muscle groups, and taking on a journey in an uncontrolled environment
that stimulates brain with countless variables. Thus, achieving your goals in an
unpredictable weather, recognizing the thrill of beating storm and making it back
home safely result in enhancement of overall personality of an adventurous person.
Moreover, many people are reluctant to try new things like mountain biking, scuba
diving, white river rafting, Para-gliding etc., thinking that they do not possess the
skills or have an ability to enjoy it. Encouraging people to try new activities results
in building up team spirit, promoting positive attitude and making them come out of
their comfort zone. Thus, we can say that by trying out dangerous sports, one can
get rid-off the negative feeling and develop a feeling of working as a team.
Looking at the above, we can say that adventure sports have many impressive
benefits including problem solving, improved communication skills, self-confidence
and team work. However, it is recommended that these sports should be tried under
proper guidance and supervision of a guard.

While every sport has a danger, extreme sports athletes are at a high risk
of serious injuries. For example, back-country snowboarders are known for riding on
an unpredictable terrain where avalanches are common. Since these off-piste riders
do not ride on a groomed slope, hazards such as large boulders and fallen trees can
be easily hidden under large deposits of newly fallen snow. As can be seen from this
example, even a smallest misstep can plummet big wave surfers more than 30 feet
below the breaking ocean waves. Thus, we can say that adventurous people are
prepared to gamble their safety in search of adrenaline rush.

In education system, assessment through formal written examination still

Without a doubt formal written examination is used widely as assessment criteria in
most of the educational institutes for decades. The moot question as to whether the
formal written assessment is still?
Evaluation method of a students performance has always been an area of
contention around the world. Many believe that this can be done by continual
assessment of their assignments and project work. On the other hand, people are
also in favour of formal examination. I believe the latter is more appropriate option.
This can be proved by analysing the fact that the homework and projects done at
home can be copied and also memory of a student can be tested only through a
formal assessment.
Firstly, the work book assignments submitted by the students are not always done
by them. A study by education department of India proved that many parents help
their children in completion of assignments. Not only this, the projects are also
copied in order to submit the same on time. Thus, we can say that it is not a reliable
method to judge student capabilities.
Secondly, the examination that is taken in education institutes make students learn
the concept and also memorize the same that they have studied in their class.
Moreover, these are conducted in the presence of invigilator. That restricts students
to take any external help. This shows how much grasping power does an individual
have. Therefore, this can be considered as a more reliable method of testing ones
To conclude, looking at the discussion it is clear that advantages of formal testing
outweighs the advantages of testing by assignments and projects. I believe the
method should be implied across the globe and it can be predicted that many
countries will adopt this way of assessment because of its effectiveness.

Large shopping malls are replacing small shops. Your opinion? Good or bad
This is a true fact to consider that present world has become a global village.
Therefore, people are motivated to buy their necessities from competitive market.
As a result, a great number of shopping malls has established in past two decades
in almost all cities of the world. The question whether this boom of mall's trend is
positive or negative is a complex issue, upon which opinion varies greatly.
There are reasons for people to believe that large shopping malls are important to
be established as multi stories shopping malls come with a large number of stores
and other facilities under one roof. First and foremost time saving from shopping
from such multi-complex buildings could be significant factor. It may be defined as
majority of them prefer to go to the shopping malls rather than the single stores
because varieties of options are available in one complex. For example, clothes,
groceries, banks, pharmacies, cinemas, food courts, and restaurants etc. are all
available under a single roof and people get better environment from such
There are some groups who are in favour of single shops and opine that this trend
should be continued. They have their reasons as well. In spite of views discussed
above regarding why large shopping malls are ideal to the modern society. Parking
problems could be substantial reason behind the opponent's viewpoint. There
including excursive crowding in the shopping complex, especially on weekends and
holidays. As a result shoppers have to spend a long time in the parking bays rather
than the shopping in small shops. The prices in large shopping malls are often
unreasonable and people end up purchasing more than they actually need. The
large shopping malls are not often convenient for lower and middle class population.
In last, undoubtedly, whether shopping in a large shopping complex or single small
shops could be matter of discussion; however, as far as I am concerned, big
shopping malls have immense benefits to the modern society that outweigh the
options and conveniences offered by the small shops.
In the fast-paced of life, urban citizens like to buy daily items in big supermarket
chains rather than shopping in small stores and local markets. It is argued that chief
among causes this, are convenience and hygienic environments. Yet there remains
some disagreement as to whether the overall effect of shopping at the chains has
been positive or negative. I personally believe that the drawbacks of this tendency
far outweigh its benefits. This argument will be analysed how buying products in the
supermarkets can lead to lose local identity and the price will be controlled by

First of all, it is an undeniable fact that the huge supermarket chains are seriously
eroding the features of the local district. For instance, in Hong Kong, a lot of small
unique retail stores were closed down due to big multiple shops that can afford to
pay high rent. Therefore, all the shops will become homogenous and lose the local
characteristics. Admittedly, although I certainly agree that this kind of market is
convenient, it has severely violated the regional identity.

Secondly and even more importantly, the supermarkets will monopolize the market
and control the price due to less and weak competitors. To illustrate, they can set up
exorbitant price of their products because customers only can buy it from them.
Thus it creates an unbalanced market and also deprives consumers right to search
for more affordable alternatives. It is obvious from this that this development has
indeed been bad.

Following this look at how losing the local identity and dominate prices by the
supermarket, it is proven that shopping in the large markets is an unfavourable
development. Also, I believe that it seems highly advisable for residents to
consume in local markets.

Nowadays, people spend too much time at work to the extent that they
hardly have time for their personal life. Discuss. WORK LIFE BALANCE

Long working hours are the norm these days and that is hardly surprising. In this
competitive job scenario people are forced to work harder and harder. When people
spend more hours working, they get less time for themselves. This is not necessarily
a positive development because it can lead to health problems as well as the
disruption of families and personal relationships.
For one thing, there is absolutely nothing to prove that long working hours improve
productivity. In fact, when people work longer than they should, what happens is
that their productivity decreases. They fail to concentrate and take longer to finish
jobs. Traveling far for work doesnt help either. In many major cities people often
have to travel several hours to reach their work place. When at last, they reach
home braving the traffic and a hard-working day, they have little energy left in
them. In addition, studies have proved that people who spend long hours in the
office are also more likely to develop major health problems like heart disease and
We have already seen that long working hours doesnt necessarily translate into
improved productivity. Another problem with this set up is the effect it has on a
persons family and social life. When people spend long hours in the office, they get
little time to spend with their dear ones. Parents, who work long hours, often fail to
take proper care of their young children. This can be quite a problem in families
where both parents work. When children are deprived of the attention they deserve,
it will affect their emotional well-being. It can also have a negative impact on their
academic performance. In extreme cases, failure to strike a balance between work
and life can lead to the breakup of families.
As explained above, long working hours are in nobodys interest. They dont
improve an individuals productivity. In fact, they make them less productive. Whats
more, when people spend more time in the office, their family life suffers. In other
words proper work-life balance is absolutely essential to lead a contented life. It is
hoped that companies arrange their working hours in such a way that employees
also get some time for themselves.
It is usually foolish to get married before completing your studies and
getting established in a good job? Do you agree or disagree".
Getting married before finishing studies and getting employed can be arduous at
times. Although some people may believe in getting married prior to settle their
career, I would still advocate that getting married later is much better as one can
focus on his career.
There are numerous disadvantages to getting married while still a student. It can
create a greater problem when you are dependent on parents to support you. There
is the probability of more tension on the part of both sets of parents. Expecting your
parents to continue paying your tuition as though you were still a child once you
have chosen to take on the very adult responsibility of marriage can also create
Another reason to wait is the time constraint on enrolled newlyweds. Balancing time
at home, adjusting to a new life and spending time on academics is a daunting task,
regardless of how organized you are. Married college students are often left with not
enough time to do housework, study or have couple time. Little time is left for each
other so theres less time to work on personal growth and the marriage. The college
marriage often results in restriction of college experiences, participation in college
functions and of relationships of college friends.
Not only that, but she also finds that marriage affects academics. There is often a
drop in grades due to added responsibilities or having to take on a full time job. The
distractions that marriage brings are endless and normal, but if yours current
schedule and goals make marriage too much to handle on top of your college life,
then the smartest decision may be taking care of your college career before saying
your vows.
Sometimes the engaged couple isnt actually ready to decide what they want out of
marriage yet. College is a time of growth and maturing. Getting married too soon
can cut growth and maturation short. Most students need some time to be self-
supporting, living on your own and making decisions as you mature. An early
marriage can prevent students from ever getting that time to mature.

Talk about pros/cons of this era as it is full of daily inventions

In today's world, where just about everything is more convenient and accessible due
to advances in technology across almost all sectors, it may seem as though it's a
misnomer to even mention any disadvantages of technological advances. However,
despite how far technology has taken humans and no matter how convenient it may
make things, there are some disadvantages accompanying this level of access.
Technology advances show people a more efficient way to do things, and these
processes get results. For example, education has been greatly advanced by the
technological advances of computers. Students are able to learn on a global scale
without ever leaving their classrooms. Agricultural processes that once required
dozens upon dozens of human workers can now be automated, thanks to advances
in technology, which means cost-efficiency for farmers. Medical discoveries occur at
a much more rapid rate, thanks to machines and computers that aid in the research
process and allow for more intense educational research into medical matters. This
results in cost savings for business owners, allowing them to invest in growth in
other areas of the business, which contributes on a positive level to the economy as
a whole.
The more advanced society becomes technologically, the more people begin to
depend on computers and other forms of technology for everyday existence. This
means that when a machine breaks or aCOMPUTER CRASHES , humans become
almost disabled until the problem is resolved. This kind of dependency on
technology puts people at a distinct disadvantage, because they become less self-
At the same time, human workers retain less value, which is a disadvantage of
technological advances. Because machines automate processes and do the work of
10 people with one computer, companies find they don't need to employ as many
people to get the job done. As machines and computers become even more
advanced and efficient, this will continue to be a growing disadvantage of
technology and an issue that has a global impact.

Imitating celebrities in sports and movies good or bad?

Hero worship is in our blood. In this day and age, media and sports personalities are
the heroes. They are everywhere on the billboards, in the newspapers, on TV and
internet. This omnipresence has earned them widespread fame and millions of fans
who try to imitate everything that they do. Is this a positive development? Lets
Imitating film and sports personalities is nothing unusual but unfortunately it isnt
always good. A large number of our celebrities dont set good examples. Many of
them are known for their extravagant and wasteful lifestyles. They dont mind
spending millions of dollars on shopping. They wear expensive designer garments
and drive super luxury cars. They earn millions of dollars every year so it doesnt
really matter to them. Unfortunately, they inspire middle class people, who can
hardly afford this, to adopt the same life style. Wafer thin models promote
unhealthy eating habits. Anorexia has become a major health issue these days.
Models and film stars who look nearly perfect because of Photoshop effects have
given rise to a generation obsessed with looking perfect. Even extramarital
relationships are now considered perfectly acceptable because several celebrities
have multiple partners.
Celebrities are human beings too and they have their own weaknesses. Just
because they happen to excel in a particular field, we cant expect them to be
paragons of virtue. They are influential people and it would be great if they can be
good role models, but the truth is that that is where most of them fail.
On the other hand, we do have something to learn from these famous people. They
are achievers. Many of them had humble beginnings. Still, they rose to fame
because of their determination and hard work. We can also achieve the same if we
make a sincere attempt.
After analysing the situation, it is not hard to see that admiring and imitating film
and sports personalities who do not set a good example is bad. Simply admiring
them is alright. The problem begins when you try to imitate everything that they do.

Any recent invention that you think proved beneficial or detrimental to

In the past 100 years, there have been many inventions such as
antibiotics, airplanes and computers. What do you think is the most
important of them? Why? Greatest invention in the last 100 years,
medicine, science or technology?
It is evident how life has changed since technology has been introduced in the
human life. When we think about technology mostly the first thing that comes to
our mind is the image of a computer. Technological advancements such as
computers have been designed and created with the only purpose to help humans
and make their lives easier. Computers have become indispensable in any
workplace where they are basically considered a compliment for people to help
them on developing their activities. In fact, computers are the greatest invention of
all time because they have multi-tasking features that can minimize your work, they
can display and let you manipulate stored information, and they are used in almost
all fields for any purpose.
First of all computers have multi-tasking features that can minimize the work you
have to do. For example, computers avoid you having to calculate any result on
doing math, the only thing you must do is to type the information needed and your
work is done. Secondly, computers can display and let you manipulate stored
information. In other words, you dont need to use paper in order to store any
information on shelves. You dont even have to rewrite a whole paper because you
did a mistake or you have to add more information to the written form. You can
have as many files as you can in your computer and organize them the way you like
it without having to use any extra material or space.
Finally, computers are used in almost all fields for any purpose such as
entertainment, education, and any type of job. For example, you can use computers
to play videogames, watch movies, listen to music or chat on the internet for
entertainment. In education or any job you can use them for videoconferences,
PowerPoint presentations or just using their basic features discussed in the first
point. Therefore computers are the greatest invention of all time because they
reduce your time consumption on your activities, you can save your information and
edit it anytime, and they let you do almost everything you need. Computers have
become the most powerful tool ever created.

Information revolution has changed the way of mass communications and

had some negative and positive effects on individual lives as well as on
society. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Communication has changed significantly in the last 10 yers.
Disucss pros and cons impacts.
Information Technology has not only brought the world closer together. Therefore,
we can not only share information quickly and efficiently, but we can also bring
down barriers of linguistic and geographic boundaries. The world has developed into
a global village due to the help of information technology allowing to shares ideas
and information with each other. Communication has also become cheaper, quicker,
and more efficient. We can now communicate with anyone around the globe by
simply text messaging them or sending them an email for an almost instantaneous
response. The internet has also opened up face to face direct communication from
different parts of the world thanks to the helps of video conferencing.
Bridging the cultural gap - Information technology has helped to bridge the cultural
gap by helping people from different cultures to communicate with one another, and
allow for the exchange of views and ideas, thus increasing awareness and reducing
However, while information technology may have streamlined the business process
it has also crated job redundancies, downsizing and outsourcing. This means that a
lot of lower and middle level jobs have been done away with causing more people to
become unemployed.
Privacy - Though information technology may have made communication quicker,
easier and more convenient, it has also bought along privacy issues. Due to website
and email hacking, people are now worried about their once private information
becoming public knowledge.
Lack of job security - Industry experts believe that the internet has made job
security a big issue as since technology keeps on changing with each day. This
means that one has to be in a constant learning mode, if he or she wishes for their
job to be secure.
Dominant culture - While information technology may have made the world a global
village, it has also contributed to one culture dominating another weaker one. For
example it is now argued that US influences how most young teenagers all over the
world now act, dress and behave. Languages too have become overshadowed, with
English becoming the primary mode of communication for business and everything

Learning a new language at an early age is helpful for children. Is it more

positive for their future aspect or have some adverse effects. Agree or
There are several benefits of learning new language in the early age for children. It
promotes better understanding of psychology and diversity and good for their brain
Learning a second language does not cause language confusion, language delay or
cognitive deficit, which have been concerns in the past. In fact, according to the
recent study in US children who learn a second language can maintain attention
despite outside stimuli better than children who know only one language. Children
will develop selective and conscious cognitive processes to achieve goals in the face
of distraction and plays a key role in academic readiness and success in school
In other words, cognitive advantages follow from becoming bilingual. These
cognitive advantages can contribute to a child's future academic
success. Bilingualism delays Alzheimers disease by as much as five. Being bilingual
can lead to improved listening skills, since the brain has to work harder to
distinguish different types of sounds in two or more languages. Babies brought up in
a bilingual environment have stronger working memories than those brought up
with only one language. This means they are better at mental calculation, reading
and many other vital skills. Better multi-tasking-Bilingual people can switch from
one task to another more quickly. They show more cognitive flexibility and find it
easier to adapt to unexpected circumstances. Learning a new language can literally
change the way you see the world. Learning Japanese, for example, which has basic
terms for light and dark blue, may help you perceive the colour in different ways

In under developed countries, tourism has disadvantages and can be said

the opposite as well.
In recent decades, low cost airfare has made international travel easier and many
countries have, therefore, developed their tourism industries into key sectors of
their economies. While it is clear tourism brings obvious benefits to the countries
that host tourists, it is also true to say it may bring disadvantages as well.
Undoubtedly, there are significant benefits that tourism brings to a country. First, a
thriving tourist industry implies an increasing need for a variety of services such as
hotels, transport, restaurants, and entertainment. This result in a considerable
number of jobs being created for people who lack a college education and also the
development of the infrastructure needed to accommodate visitors. Moreover,
tourism is a "green" industry that, unlike factories, generates a low level of
pollution. In fact, because beautiful natural landscapes are often places that tourists
come to see, a country will often be sure to maintain the landscape in order to keep
it attractive for tourists.
Despite the benefits, there are aspects of tourism that may prove harmful to a
country. For instance, a country may suffer from the loss of their traditional culture.
This is caused by people in a country changing their lifestyle, customs, and
language in order to more effectively serve visitors or because they become
influenced by foreign countries. This can cause stress in a traditional society and
could even lead to animosity towards tourists. In addition, because tourists often
carry expensive objects like cameras and are unaware of their surroundings, they
make good targets for theft. Crime also increases as a result of the increases in
drugs and prostitution that caters to some vacationers.
In summary, global tourism is greatly beneficial to an economy and environment of
a country. However, it can be detrimental in several ways. To my way of thinking, a
country should seek to develop its tourism industry because it can bring steady jobs
to many people without their need for higher education and without the risk of
environmental damages.
The only thing that interfere with my leaning is my education- Einstein.
What does he mean by that? And do you think he is correct?
Education is an effort of the senior people to transfer their knowledge to the
younger members of society. In traditional education system, the educational
system was too small and the content of education was related to religion,
philosophy, metaphysics and scriptural subjects. This is the reason why Einstein
considered education to be the biggest barrier in his learning. This essay will
analyse both sides of the argument.
According to Einstein, students learn through a formally designed education pattern
restricting their thought process. Also, there are some rigid rules like age of
admission, content and duration of course, procedures of examination, selection of
elective subject, etc. which are designed by government or designated agency such
as school. The students are taught and given the answers to the questions and
these questions come in the examination to test their retention power. Thus,
students are not encouraged to think out of the box and search for solution
themselves. They all are expected to provide the same answer which is in books.
This example shows why Einstein believed that formal education hinders the
process of learning.
However, in my opinion, education in schools is important for children as it provides
disciplined environment, proper guidance from teacher, extracurricular activities to
develop basic skills like reading and writing. In addition, modern day education is
aided with a variety of technology, computers, projectors, internet, and many more.
There is much to learn and more to assimilate. For instance, internet provides vast
knowledge and students should be allowed to search the answers to their problems
themselves. This will help them in coming up with different solutions and
succeeding in life. Thus, we can say that education plays a vital role in the initial
learning phase.
Looking at both sides of the argument, we conclude that the current
education system is the building block of learning through proper teachers
guidance and using new technology such as internet.

The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and
write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn. Agree or
'The illiterate of the twenty-first century will not be those who cannot read and
write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.' - Alvin Toffler
In present situation of the world we should not stop learning things. For example, a
freelance web developer cant possibly land a high-paying contract if he cant write
a good proposal letter. A successful developer should not only proficient in
designing schematics and code, but also he should know how to market himself
through writing and by promoting on the internet.
If a person believe that jack of all trades and master of none then it is totally
wrong in current society. The truth is that jacks of all trades are valued more highly
right now than people with a very specialized skill set. Additionally it is foolish to
think that it is impossible to become master in many trades which is a is just an
excuse to be lazy.
Some people fear in experimenting because theres always the risk of failing. They
would rather sit comfortably with their proven methods than venture further into
the unknown, but it will not work well in the current speed of technology advances.
The death of learning comes when a person starts to believe that everything has
already been learned. This conceitedness closes the mind to learning new things.
Its like believing that the bottle is already full, and therefore must be capped shut,
when its still halfway filled.
Do you believe yourself to be the master of your own trade, that focusing on just
one skill is for the best since its been working flawlessly for several years now? And
that learning another skill is just a distraction, or perhaps you dont have time for it?
If your answer is yes to at least one of those questions, then yes, you are an
illiterate of the 21st century. If your answer is no then you are not an illiterate of the
21st century. Nowadays learning newer skills is a win-win situation in highly
competitive job and commerce market.

Value added by travel in Education. Is travel a necessary component of

education or not ? Will scholar sitting at home have more knowledge?
Travel to study is over rated, we have brilliant scholars who studied
locally. Is travel really required for higher studies?
The development of society is going towards a globalised world where education is
an essential foundation for personal, social and economic success. International
studies are becoming a new trend for young people as a way to expand their
education beyond their traditional education style. It is agreed that adding a foreign
qualification has become an integral part of higher studies. This argument is proven
by looking at how it widens peoples perspective and helps them with better career
Studying abroad helps people increase their awareness about different
cultures of the world. This will contribute in creating individuals with a broader
understanding of issues concerning todays society rather than limiting them in a
scope of home education system. For example, universities have a large community
of students both from the local area and all around the globe. The diverse academic
community enhances the quality of learning by providing wider spectrum of
opinions and expertise. This example clearly shows that international education
enhances outlook and sharpens self-awareness. Therefore, we can say that traveling
is an important element of education.
Moreover, acquiring a globally recognized qualification or degree opens
the doors for international job market. The students gain more knowledge and
expertise when abroad and apply them to situations requiring international
interactions. Also, employers look for the graduates with international experience
either by studying or working abroad. Thus, we can say that international studies
add value to a students education.
In summary, it can be said that travelling to foreign countries for higher
studies is a key to succeed in this globalised planet.

"Marketing strategy for big companies should be placed on offer and

discounts, and in what ways this can impact on their reputation
Have you noticed how our shopping culture has changed in the last decade?
Everyone, and I mean everyone, seems to be slashing their prices.

Why Offer a Discount? Answer is to increase the customer base of the organizations
they offer discounts. Take Groupon for example, someone might get a deal for his or
her local restaurant, and he thinks that "Hey I never been to this restaurant lets try
today". Bam! The restaurant got a new customer through their door. There are even
multi-million dollar businesses that have built their organizations around the
concept of discounting.

Eventually, discounting can actually hurt organization business in the long run. If a
company is giving discounts it shows that they have lack of confidence on their
product, people expect same price every time it is a bad precedent, and they are
making their product lower perceived value, customer think that the product is not
trustworthiness which will lead to the cut down in the company profit.

What should organizations do instead of giving discounting? They should focus on

value of the product, know the target audience, and show confidence in their
products. It will prove that what they are selling works. The perfect example for this
kind of organization is the Apple Company. I have not seen Apple giving discounts in
general way.

The space travel is fantastic these day and they are very fascinate
towards its but there are many environmental problems in our planet we
should resolve the problems or travel space and spend a lot of money
Nowadays, there are many countries spend a large mountain of money in the outer
space traveling. Recently, there are some people think governments should spend
as much money as possible exploring outer space, whoever, some people think
governments should spend those money on our basic needs on earth. I strongly
agree with this opinion because our planet needs more attention to its environment
problems, and many people still starving to death in many parts in our world.
First of all, our planet needs more researches to solve the environment problems.
For example, the air pollution increasing day after day on the earth this is causing
the whole in the ozone layer. This pollution decays from the badly consumption of
the human being. I think this problem deserve more care and attention from the
governments instead of spend money in outer space traveling they should offer a
constant budget to fund such these researches because the outcomes of them will
benefit all the human kind and helping to prevent problems in the future.

Secondly, governments should spend much money to support and help the people
who starving to death in many areas in our plants. We can see and read in many
media resources about the hunger in different areas. The question now is; how
could the governments help those people? I think the answer is very simple, by
spending more money in supporting the hunger people with food, and helping them
to find their food resources. It interested to travel exploring outr space, but just in
case we can find a solution to our planets problems especially the hunger issue.
Because, it does not make any sense spending billions of money in such these trips
and try to find another places in the universe, and the people in the earth cant find
the enough food to live in.

Finally, I think governments should spend a large mount of money in environment

researches and apply the results of them to make benefits to the human kind. Also,
the governments should spend more money in helping the hunger people in
different places in the world. In case we can find a solution to our planet's problem
we can think about discovering the outer places and arrange the traveling to their.

In a war of ideas, it is people who get killed. Does a common man suffer
from a groups ideology? Express your opinion, and support the same with
reasons and examples
Throughout history, the thinking of a group of people is impacting the lives of
thousands of civilians. Whether it is considered on a political or social level, a set of
decisions of a group explains how a society should work. It is completely agreed
that in the conflict of interest between different countries or different groups within
same country, it is the innocent people who sacrifice their lives. It can be seen from
the incidents of World War II and September 11 attacks in United States of America.
First of all, during World War II, a group of countries namely US, UK and China united
and attacked Japan with explosive atomic bombs destroying the cities of Hiroshima
and Nagasaki, killing more than one lakh civilians. This is a clear example of the
decision laid by a few countries against Japan to surrender to its Allies. Though,
these countries achieved victory in their mission but Japanese people are still
suffering from the radioactive radiation effect which resulted in blindness and
mental disorders. Thus, we can say that political ideologies of a group can
drastically harm society.
In addition, September 11 attacks on US by a group of 19 militants, associated with
Islamic extremist group, hijacked four airplanes and killed around 3,000 people by
colliding airplanes into symbolic US landmark. This example clearly shows how the
decision and planning of these terrorist activists took lives of thousands of innocent
Looking at the above examples, we can say that it is common man who is suffering
from the social, economic and political interests of a few people. It is hoped that in
future, the major decisions concerning every citizen or the civilians of another
country, would be taken considering its consequences.

Nowadays TV has become an essential part of life. Medium to spread news

& awareness and for some it acts like a companion. What is your opinion
about this?
The invention of Television around two decades back opened wide frontiers for
transmission of visual communication and awareness. Since then the research and
development on this has never paused, and today we have 3D and curved
televisions available as well. In fact, it will be hard to find any domestic family
without watching TV as a part of their daily life. It has helped in making the world a
smaller place to live in by making all sorts of shows, latest news update and
information in all areas via a wide range of channels.
Television provides a wide range to channels to choose from on tourism, travel,
foods, lifestyle, news, general knowledge, movies, music, reality show and many
more. In fact, the information is so useful that many people plan their holiday based
on a show on tourism, they try to cook new items by following the recipe shown,
become aware of all sorts of happenings in the world and least to mention the craze
about sports event. For many, TV is almost indispensible as they believe it to be a
friend which is always there when needed.
Television is a great time waster. We no longer have enough time for hobbies, other
outside amusements like theatres, movies, sports got ignored. People have grown
addicted to television, often neglecting the necessary and more important things
like meals, sleep, and even work. The more the viewer watches television, the lazier
they become. The TV glues them to the set instead of allowing them to go out.
Television prevents people from communicating with each other which had caused
the harm to the relationship between family members. Families sit and watch
television at dinner instead of talking with each other.
Finally, it is our duty to limit anything in too excess. The benefits which TV has
brought into our daily lives cannot be denied.

Parents should be held legally responsible for their childrens acts. What
is your opinion? Support it with personal examples....
Lately there seems to be a great number of young adults making the news for
causing harm to others. Unthinkable acts are being initiated by kids such as setting
fellow students on fire, sexually assaulting an intoxicated and unconscious student,
attacking and beating homeless people, and excessive group bullying leading to
I think we can all agree that this type of wrongful conduct is inexcusable. The
question being asked is whether or not the parents of these young adults can be
held liable for the negligent and intentional acts of their children. In my opinion, yes
parents should be held legally for the act of their children. For example if the young
adults causes any damages to the people property because of reckless driving and
injuring others parents should held financially liable. It is fine if it is damage to
property, what if the act of child causes physical damage to person or loss of life?. It
is parents responsibility to take care about their children. They should keep
watching his/her acts and tell them what is wrong and what is right. If they are
neglected this and do not look after the children then they should be definitely held
legally for their negligence.
In my capacity as a father to two children, I feel the bottom line is that parents must
take a keen interest in the upbringing of their children. Teaching our children the
difference between right and wrong is our responsibility and should not be
delegated to some else. When it comes to raising children, we all need to walk our
talk and teach by example.

You are given climate as the field of study. Which area will you prefer?
Explain why you picked up the particular area for your study?
All over the world today, it can be observed that the issue of climate change has
grown in importance over the past few decades. Therefore, if I were given climate
as my field of study, I would like to study the underlying causes of this devastating
global phenomenon and possible solutions to tackle this.
To begin with, a variety of reasons can be offered to explain why I would choose this
particular area of study. Foremost among these is the fact that we have been
experiencing the hottest 15 years on record in the last two decades. Linked to this is
the fact that millions are at risk of drought, chronic water shortages, bushfire,
coastal flooding and hazardous air pollution. As the above-mentioned points make it
clear, it can hardly be denied that the issues of climate change must be addressed
with a sense of urgency.
But what really is the proper role for individuals and institutions in addressing
climate change? An immediate and natural response may be that everyone should
do their part. As individuals, we can help by taking action to reduce our personal
carbon emissions. But to fully address the threat of global warming, we must
demand action from our elected leaders to support and implement a comprehensive
set of climate solutions such as transforming our energy system to a cleaner one,
placing limits on the amount of carbon that polluters are allowed to emit, reducing
tropical deforestation and its associated global warming emissions.
In conclusion, It is my considered opinion that if we were to put in place some of the
solutions mentioned, we would at least be on our way to solving this problem.
Therefore, I would like to play my part to contribute to the solution of climate

Do you think English will remain to be a global language despite

There are so many benefits of learning English and they can be found in many sides
such as in international business community, technology field, education, and in the
social life.
In international business environment, English holds an important role to make the
business goes well. English is very useful when company build cooperation with
another international company from different country. To become the winner of the
hard competition in business world, businessman must be able to understand and
use English well. Besides that, a company prefers to hire an employee who has a
good skill in language, especially English. However, by understanding English will
improve the prospect for employment in business environment and help the
businessman able to handle the business problem efficiently
English takes a large part in the growth of technology. Almost every electronic
devices use English especially computing and internet. That is because most of
scientists write in English although some of them use English as their second
language. English is not only use in the hardware but it is used in the software also.
Every command in the computer is in English and to operate it people should
understand English first. In the internet, there is a lot of information written in
English such as e-mail, blog, and social network. It shows that learning English gives
many benefits to the advance of technology.
In education, the international student should have capability to speak, read, and
write in English. A student can access any information in the books, internet, and
magazine with the help of English. Successful academic career depend on how deep
the understanding of student in English because in international standard education
English is the primary language which used in learning process. Besides that, if the
students know English well, they also will be able to read and understand the great
work in literature that related with their study which written in English. In this case,
English can be assuming as the root of the international education.
As a social creature, people will continuously interact with the other in various social
lives. In this case English become unifier of the difference in language. People will
be easier to express their idea about something or exchange information in English
to the other people from different country. English is the tool for digging information
deeper and deeper again to know what actually happen in the world. If people have
a good capability to speak in English, it will be widening their knowledge because
they will be able to understand more information than those who are not good in

Some people think placing advertisements in schools is a great resource

for public schools that need additional funding, but others think it exploits
children by treating them as a captive audience for corporate sponsors.
Choose which position you most agree with and discuss why you chose
that position. Support your point of view with details from your own
experiences, observations or reading.

Advertisements have been an inseparable part of any corporate businesses to

attract potential customers to expand their businesses. On the contrary, in my
opinion placing advertisements inside public schools in order to lure juvenile mind is
certainly not a good idea to promote commercial business.
To begin with, schools are the home for immature children where they come to learn
academic as well as moral lessons. These children can be tempted to do any
activities easily therefore putting advertisements inside schools may impact
pejoratively on such students. For example, a child might break his hands and legs
by imitating and reproducing the action pose shown on the violent blockbuster
movie advertisements. Moreover, many advertisements nowadays displays sexually
motivated explicit materials and other adult themes which would captivate young
mind to delineate juvenile delinquency indulging into an anti-social behaviour such
as raping, smoking, vandalism and other heinous crimes. Further, these children
might tempt to spend hefty sum of money to buy the mendaciously advertised
unfruitful products which not only hampers their academic activities but also largely
effects on their brain development and ethical behaviour.
On the contrary, advertisements are good source of funding for the public schools
who always find themselves hard to manage their financial cash flow. Corporate
houses often pay a huge sum of money when they place advertisements inside
schools as young school children can easily be motivated to go after their products.
Besides, many advertisements targeted to kids such as Toothpaste, Shower gel and
Detol are espousing to bring awareness on children to wash their hands before
eating foods and after using toilets or brushing teeth early in the morning and
before going to bed.

Therefore, to recapitulate, advertisements are efficient and effortless source of

money for the public schools however schools management must act prudently to
monitor continuously students behaviour and choose suitable advertisements to
put inside schools so that children do not go astray.

Question: Scientists are constantly exploring other planets rather than solving problems
of their own planet. Do you think they should explore or try to evade the problems of
earth .

Answer: Evidently, human species have always demonstrated an insatiable quest to

discover something new. Space exploration is perfect selection to epitomise this quest.
However, are my of people entirely condemn the idea of spending heaps of amounts on
such endeavour. This essay would discuss this issue in detail.
Vividly, commencement of space exploration,since 1960s, have brought
countless advantages to humanity, wireless communications through mobile,
radio, internet are outcome of space exploration only by using satellites. It is
irrefutable that the planet earth , already teeming with humanity, will be
overcrowded and the dearth of space on this planet is imminent. Therefore,
billions of dollars are being spent to search life-like signs on other planets of
Galaxy. Already the efforts have started paying off as scientists have found
life sustaining elements , water and breathable air,on Mars. Some of the
predictions are even made to make leisure trips for people to other planets.

On the contrary, a group totally opposes such kind of spendings as they

reckon that planet earth needs attention to make it secure and worth-living.
Firstly, some people are facing problems like malnourishment and have died
due to insufficient food and health care services. Moreover, significant chunk
of population is deprived of education due to lack of funds to support. Thus,
wasting money on making trips to other planets just to collect few pebbles
from there makes no sense. The money spent on such ventures has no direct
outcome as it takes a number of decades to make any discovery, whereas,
money spent on education and health gives direct result of improved

After pondering over a great deal of thought of both sides, I opine that a right
balance needs to be sought as both the aspects are of paramount value and
need attention and funding.

1. Repeat Sentence: Try to do your level best on this. I think this part carry
the maximum points. Need paramount concentration on it. I closed my eyes
and imagine the speaker & topics, this helped me.

2. Describe Image: Dont ever try to describe full content. Summary,

Highest/minimum information, conclusion (if possible). Must ignore any
pause but dont speak fast and ensure your word is clear to understand. Try
to use this words; Gradually, Steep rise, increase, fluctuating, remain
stable/steady, surge, the largest group of people, the least common answer,
southeast corner of the room/map/layout and so on.

3. Retell Lecture: Again content is not important but ensure you can speak
40 seconds. Ignore aah, hmm and other paused sound as much as
possible; just speak normal voice with fluency.

4. Question/Answer: Try to listen the question properly. Sometimes they

give some image or graph and ask question from it. If not sure the answer
then repeat the question or mention both the option when try to choose one.
I guess this section content less marks. I know some person in this forum
who did not answer 3~4 questions but secure 90 in speaking.
Last not the least, try to practice speaking in noisy environment such as put
the BBC on in TV then practice your speaking. I found that exam hall was
noisy and everyone is shouting during speaking.

One more thing, grammar is not important in speaking (need comment from
expert). Hence, main focus should be fluency and punctuation.


I think, this part is the most easiest one at-least compare with IELTS who
suffers 0 .5 mark there :-)

All the topics are repeated, so it is easy to get the idea before sitting for
exam. However, must practice typing with those known topics within given
time frame.

Ensure proper grammar and vocabulary. I have to use some predetermine

vocabulary lists in my exam.. Some of them are as follows:-

Bolster, impeccable, indispensable, parochial attitude, fathom, laudable

effort, crux, unbridled/bridled, formidable, inundate, inevitably, jeopardize,
emancipation, itinerary, overwhelming, tremendously and so one.

All these words are easy to fit any sentence and increase your vocabulary
marks and use connecting words like furthermore, moreover, hence, in
addition, besides, nevertheless, nonetheless, although, even though , while,
Indeed, in fact, finally, Lastly, In conclusion etc..

Last not the least, ensure there will be no spelling mistakes. But again I am
not the expert, this is my personal strategy.


This section is definitely hard compare with IELTS at least for me. My
grammar understanding is very poor which was also difficult to improve
within a very short time specially the phrasal verb, collocation. At the same
time, I got little assistance to improve my marks in this section from others.
Hence, I made some strategy with some personal observation.
1) I ensured that my 10/11 questions from fill in the blanks and read &
writing questions should correct.
2) I Skipped the Multiple choose questions as it was killing my times.
Furthermore, it also contain negative marking if answer choose is wrong.
3) Utilize time in single multiple choose and reorder paragraph. However, my
reorder paragraph was very tough compare with my previous exam. Hence, I
was nervous to clear the target score. Anyway, I survive..

Now, it was my strategies based on my weakness and strongest points. You

can also prepare for yourself according to your need if you are facing hurdle
in this section.


In my opinion it is easy to get point in this section and dont need to make
any special strategy for it . However, in my own observation, Highlight
Correct Summary, Highlight incorrect words, write from dictation secure
more marks(may be I am wrong as well) and ensure spelling marks in write
from dictation section.

On the whole, I believe, concentration is very vital in PTE-A exam, be

confident about yourself and dont lose hope or disoriented until the exam is

The structure of this exam is totally diffferent compare with IELTS. Therefore,
if you decide to give PTE then try your level best with preparation before
fueling money. Nevertheless, may be you will not cross the branch mark (All
module 65/79) in your first attempt and you need to face the same obstacle
again for another attempt like me.

Another Experience

Thanks to my GOD that I passed this exam. Ielts made me think that my
Enlgish is not good enough and too much failure made me somehow
hopeless, but I needed and tried and with my first pte attempt I got +65.
My best mark in IELTS was:

I took it in Brisbane, Navitas centre and the results released in less than 24
The price is similar to IELTS, but if you put PTE2015 (capital without space) in
promotion code during the registration, it will give you 10% off.

I read almost 160 page of this thread and my advices are not far from the
others, just emphasizing them, so in order to get good marks I encourage
you to read them as much as you can.


read aloud: At first you might think it is an easy task, but if you try some
sentences, youll see you cannot read it clearly, fluently and without
disturbing pauses. Pronunciation and fluency is really important, and you
have read like a news reader on TV. Watch your tone, intonation, rises and
Practice as much as you can and youll be alright.

Describe image: Note that your response time is only 40 seconds, and the
information shared on the screen is usually too much, so there isnt enough
time to tell them all and it is not wise to do so. Start with an introduction and
speak fluently and clearly in 30 -35 secs. It is ok if you cannot cover all the
info, only focus on extreme figures. This is similar to IELTS academic writing
task 1.
Sentences like below are good:

The graph provides information about

The map illustrates

the trend has a significant increase

sharp fall
remained unchanged
Retell lecture:
focus on the lecture. No need to write down everything the lecturer says. Just
take a note about the topic and important categories and stuff. With only 40
seconds describe it fluently and clearly:
the lecture is about
the lecturer stated that

Answer short question:

It is about your general knowledge, and you have to practice to become
good. The only hard part is when the question is read too quick.

My speaking part was the lowest because I didnt stick to upper rules
its easy, get the whole idea and convert it into one sentence.
Write essay:
Its like Ielts writing task 2. Spelling and grammar is important. Check word
by word and proofread your work. Be aware of time.


have various parts and since the exam is ACADEMIC, youll see many new
words. The use of collocations is really important and common. Watch your
time and practice a lot. Do not stuck in one question and if you miss one do
not panic and stay focused.

Its really important to concentrate and focus the entire time.

About sources:
definitely buy the gold kit to prepare yourself and become familiar with
exam. They are harder than the real exam.
offline practice test
practice test plus
and check the Google docs about the exam essay questions. They really
help. Actually my essay question was among those questions and I had
practiced it.
The last thing about the exam is that, at the first part of each part it
introduces the whole part, and then goes through the parts without warning,
so you have to be prepared and careful cause timer is counting down quickly.

I definitely suggest you to switch to PTE or TOEFL.

Practice as much as you can and youll see the results. Because with
practicing you see that you are improving.

tipsLeave a comment

For speaking take care of these:

1. Get to the test center early (if possible be the first person) and ask the
administrator to give you a corner seat, so youll have only one neighbor and
hence is relatively more peaceful.
2. Sit upright and take a deep breath before you start, that will help. Speak
clearly and loudly (dont shout though ). And dont think you are disturbing
other test takers by speaking loudly, that should be the last thing on your
mind. One way to check your decibel levels is to observe the decibel meter
while taking the practice tests. Try to hit the high greens and low reds.
3. Mind the read aloud items, you can maximize your speaking score by
reading word by word, pronouncing each one clearly however if you dont
take care of word stress and rising and falling intonation patterns your
reading score will suffer.
4. For describe image and re-tell lecture it is absolutely important to speak
the full 40 secs. Its okay, for a couple of items, to not finish your sentence
completely before the recording stops, but you should always speak for the
full allotted time. Fluency over content, avoid aah and hmm, you can say
let me see, let me refer my notes etc.
5. For describe image, have strategies for different types of images. What is
your strategy for a bar graph, a line graph, a pie chart and a table? Once you
decide strategy for each type, use google images to practice that strategy.
6. Answer short questions is the easiest of the lot, just mind the
7. Repeat sentence was the most difficult for me. But with a right strategy
you can ace it. For example if you have to repeat The directors office has
moved to the second floor of the administration building, while listening to
the audio you can quickly jot down the first letter of each word. In this case
that would be T D O H M T T S F O T A B. You may not be able to finish it by
the time the audio clip ends but you can take an extra second to complete it,
remember you have 3 seconds before which you have start your response.
You need some practice to ace this strategy so dont try it directly in the
exam. Practice it a lot and get comfortable with the strategy before the test.

1.Skim the entire passage to get an idea of its general content. You should
be able to answer the question What is the passage mainly about?
2.Scan the entire passage for key words and phrases. Words and phrases
that are repeated throughout the passage are usually important. Make a note
of these.
3.If there are multiple paragraphs, the first paragraph will typically be an
introduction to the topic, and will often include a brief description of what will
be discussed.
4.The last paragraph will typically close with a conclusion
5.Each paragraph will have its own topic sentence expressing the main idea.
Typically, the topic sentence is the first sentence of the paragraph (Rest of
things are supporting arguments)
6.The task of summarizing a multi-paragraph passage is sometimes made
easier by briefly summarizing each paragraph first, and then combining
these summaries into a single summary.Make a brief summary of each
paragraph as you finish reading it. You do not need full sentences at this
7.Keep your summary to a maximum of 30 words. The response box has an
indicator that will tell you how many words you have written. If you are
getting close to your word limit, but still need to write more, edit your
sentence to remove unnecessary words, especially adjectives. These can
often be omitted.
8. use punctuations like comman,colon,apastrophe, ETC. You have to use the
full stop in the end of the sentence.


July 14, 2015glorytotestingPTE, PTE academic, PTE REading, reorder paragraph PTELeave a comment

another set of tips


Parajumbles are jumbled paragraphs. Basically, you are given a paragraph
but the sentences are not in the right order. Its up to you to untie this knot
and rearrange the sentences so that they logically make sense. Normally
instructions for this type of questions will read Choose the most logical
order of sentences from among the given choices to construct a coherent
So go through these
Transition words make the shift from one idea to another very smooth. They
organize and connect the sentences logically. Observing the transition words
found in a sentence can often give you a clue about the sentence that will
come before/after that particular sentence.
Given below are some commonly used transition words:
also, again, as well as, besides, furthermore, in addition, likewise, moreover,
similarly, consequently, hence, otherwise, subsequently, therefore, thus, as a
rule, generally, for instance, for example, for one thing, above all, aside from,
barring, besides, in other words, in short, instead, likewise, on one hand, on
the other hand, rather, similarly, yet, but, however, still, nevertheless, first of
all, to begin with, at the same time, for now, for the time being, in time, later
on, meanwhile, next, then, soon, the meantime, later, while, earlier,
simultaneously, afterward, in conclusion, with this in mind, after all, all in all
to sum-up.
A. But in the industrial era destroying the enemys productive capacity
means bombing the factories which are located in the cities.
B. So in the agrarian era, if you need to destroy the enemys productive
capacity, what you want to do is bum his fields, or if youre really vicious, salt
C. Now in the information era, destroying the enemys productive capacity
means destroying the information infrastructure.
D. How do you do battle with your enemy?
E. The idea is to destroy the enemys productive capacity, and depending
upon the economic foundation, that productive capacity is different in each
case F. With regard to defense, the purpose of the military is to defend the
nation and be prepared to do battle with its enemy.

EXPLANATION FOR THE ANSWER transition word but in the first sentence. It
signifies that the sentence is expressing an idea contrary to an idea
expressed in some previous sentence. Now we need to find that previous
sentence. If we further look at the beginning of the first sentence, it says
but in the industrial era which suggests that the contrariness is with
respect to eras.
Looking further, we see that sentence B and C are also starting with
statement about eras. But the transition word at the start of C is now which
expresses present era and hence it cannot chronologically come before any
other past era. That is, if information era is the present era, talk about any
other era will come before this. So sentence B is the correct sentence to
come before the first sentence.
Likewise, sentence C is the correct sentence to come after the first sentence
(sentence C is continuing the idea). Therefore, we have the link BAC.
We see that option 1, 3 and 4 all have the link BAC. Furthermore, all the
three options have the link EBAC. Therefore, we only need to arrange D and
F. The sentence F states that The purpose isto battle with the enemy and
D questions how do you battle with the enemy? Therefore, D will come .
FDEBAC is the correct arrangement.
Personal pronouns are he, she, it, him, her, they, you, your etc. Remember
that personal pronouns always refer to a person, place or thing etc.
Therefore, if a sentence contains a personal pronoun without mentioning the
person, place or object it is referring to, the person, place or object must
have come in the previous sentence .
A. Although there are large regional variations, it is not infrequent to find a
large number of people sitting here and there and doing nothing.
B. Once in office, they receive friends and relatives who feel free to call any
time without prior appointment.
C. While working, one is struck by the slow and clumsy actions and reactions,
indifferent attitudes, procedure rather than outcome orientation, and the lack
of consideration for others.
D. Even those who are employed often come late to the office and leave
early unless they are forced to be punctual.
E. Work is not intrinsically valued in India.
F. Quite often people visit ailing friends and relatives or go out of their way to
help them in their personal matters even during office hours.Look at the
personal pronoun they in sentence B: Once in office, they receive friends
and relatives who feel free to call any time without prior appointment. This
they must be referring to some people. The reference to some people only
comes in sentences A, D, and F. Therefore, one of the sentences will come
before sentence B. Lets see the link AB,DB, and FB;
Link AB- Although there are large regional variations, it is not infrequent to
find a large number of people sitting here and there and doing nothing. Once
in office, they receive friends and relatives who feel free to call any time
without prior appointment.
Link DB- Even those who are employed often come late to the office and
leave early unless they are forced to be punctual. Once in office, they receive
friends and relatives who feel free to call any time without prior appointment.
Link FB- Quite often people visit ailing friends and relatives or go out of their
way to help them in their personal matters even during office hours. Once in
office, they receive friends and relatives who feel free to call any time
without prior appointment.
Which of these links makes sense? Only link DB seems coherent. Now, we
examine the options with link DB. We see that options 1 and 3 have link DB
in them. Also, both the options have link ADBF. Therefore, ADBF is a link. Now
we only need to place sentences E and C. We can do that by reading the
sentences in the order given in options 1 and 3.
In link EC, sentence E is talking about work not being valued whereas
sentence C is talking about people being clumsy, indifferent, inconsiderate
etc. Sentence C is NOT talking about value of work. It is talking about
peoples behavior. Therefore, EC cannot be a logical flow.


The demonstrative pronouns are this, that, these, and those. This
and that are used to refer to singular nouns or noun phrases and these
and those are used to refer to plural nouns and noun phrases. Whenever a
sentence contains a demonstrative pronoun without mentioning the noun or
the noun phrase, it means that the previous sentence must be mentioning
that noun or noun phrase. Finding that noun or noun phrase helps us connect
two sentences.
A. Michael Hofman, a poet and translator, accepts this sorry fact without
approval or complaint.
B. But thanklessness and impossibility do not daunt him.
C. He acknowledges too in fact he returns to the point often that best
translators of poetry always fail at some level.
D. Hofman feels passionately about his work, and this is clear from his
E. In terms of the gap between worth and rewards, translators come
somewhere near nurses and street-cleaners.
Again an easy one. Notice the demonstrative pronoun this in sentence A:
Michael Hofman, a poet and translator, accepts this sorry fact without
approval or complaint. Also note that sentence A is introducing Michael
Hofman (Michael Hofman, a poet and translator,) and will thereby come
before every sentence containing the personal pronoun he or him. So which
sorry fact is sentence A referring to? It can only be the fact found in sentence
E. Also, other sentences contain he or him.
Therefore, EA is a link. Link EA is contained in option 1, 3 and 4. But in 4,
sentence D is coming before sentence A, and this cannot happen because
sentence A should be before any other sentence referring to Hofman as
sentence A is introducing Hofman. Therefore, we are left with options 1 and
3. The difference between options 1 and 3 is the order of sentence D and
B.Link DB- Hofman feels passionately about his work, and this is clear from
his writings. But thanklessness and impossibility do not daunt him.
In PJ we encounter full and short names sometimes acronyms of some term
or institution.
Ex-World Trade Organization WTO
Dr. Manmohan Singh Dr. Singh
Karl Marx Marx
President George W. Bush President bush or the president

The rule is that if both full form as well as short form is present in different
sentences, then the sentence containing full form will come before the
sentence containing short form.
1. If you are used to having your stimulation come in from outside, your mind
never develops its own habits of thinking and reflecting
2. Marx thought that religion was the opiate, because it soothed peoples
pain and suffering and prevented them from rising in rebellion
3. If Karl Marx was alive today, he would say that television is the opiate of
the people.
4. Television and similar entertainments are even more of an opiate because
of their addictive tendencies.
5-TIME SEQUENCE APPROACH-Either dates or time sequence indicating
words: Be aware of the time indication either by giving years or by using
time indicating words. Arrange the sentences using their proper time
sequence. Here are a few time sequence indicating words -Before after later
1. Then two astronomersthe German, Johannes Kepler, and the Italian,
Galileo Galilei-started publicly to support the Copernican theory, despite the
fact that the orbits it predicted did not quite match the ones observed.
2. His idea was that the sun was stationary at the centre and that the earth
and the planets move in circular orbits around the sun.
3. A simple model was proposed in 1514 by a Polish priest, Nicholas
4. Nearly a century passed before this idea was taken serious

SOLUTION EXPLANATION The 3rd sentence talks about the time event and
other time vents follow it in a chronological order. So
Articles can be divided into two categories
1. Definite (the) and
2. Indefinite (a and an).
When the author uses a / an he wants to make a general statement
wants to introduce the noun followed by a/an for the first time but when he
uses the he wants to refer back to some previously discussed noun. It
means having the is very unlikely in the opening sentence. If a/an and
the both are used for the same noun then the sentence containing the will
come after the sentence containing a/an.
it will come in the immediate sentence containing the respective noun.
i. e. A sequence can be like this
or like
Noun Pronoun

So we can say

Mind the correct use of tenses when describung a chart. If the charts deals
with facts in the present (as in our example), use the Simple Present, if the
facts are the past, then use the Simple Past. If there is a connection between
the past and the present, use thePresent Perfect.


With the following example we would like to show you how charts are
described. Mind the three parts and do not repeat the global message in the
We have chosen the pie chart because we think it shows the number of pets
in Year 7 best.


Here you say what the diagram is about. Mind the title of it and do not forget
to include the source.

The pie chart is about the pets in Year 7. The chart is divided into 5 parts. It
is taken from


The largest number of pets are in form 7GI. There are 16 pets.
The second largest number of pets are in form 7HK. There are 8 pets.
So there are more than twice as many pets in form 7GI.
The chart shows that there are only 2 pets in form 7CS and 3 in form 7VR.


So we can say that the most pets of Year 7 are in form 7GI and the least in
form 7CS. There are more than 50 per cent of all the pets in one form form

This graph shows the growth of the population in Canada from 1978 to 2009.
It is taken from the website about Statistics in Canada.

There are three graphs in the chart. The green graph shows the total growth
of the population, the black one deals with the migrated people in Canada
and the blue graph shows the natural increase of the population. In 1988/89
there was an enourmous growth. In the following years the total growth went
down to about 250,000 in 1998/99. From that time on the Canadian
population has been gradually growing again although the natural increase
slows down. So we can say that the growth of the population in Canada is
based on migration.

not repeat like November November

4. Be active through out this item/question and speak in to the

microphone when it will turned ON.

maps, little technical knowledge as well
6. It is a easiest part in speaking section, so so well and get full marks.
7. In recent times , it consists of questions like they will give one
image and asked the questions in that. So, be ready for any type of

Describe image:
1. This item having second highest weight-age after re-tell lecture. So be
focus on this, to achieve good scores in Speaking module.
2. There are 6 to 7 different types of things will get for this item type. Like
describe bar-graph, line-graph, pie-chart, block-diagram, table, photo,
picture, to name but a few.
3. You will get around 6 to 8 items. Including all different types of images as
cited above.
4. Need to use different vocabulary words in this. For example you need
follow below phrases to describe-
This bar-graph depicts the Australia population for 1950 to 2000. It
noticeably showed from 1950 to 1970 the growth of people is steady.
However, from 1970 to 1990 fall down and touches the lowest value 35

factor. Main focus should be on pronunciation and oral fluency. Do not follow
any separate pronunciation , use neutral pronunciation>
8.Try to identify main/key/essential points given in the diagram and describe
those points.


July 17, 2015glorytotesting2 Comments

1.Skim the entire passage to get an idea of its general content. You should
be able to answer the question What is the passage mainly about?
2.Scan the entire passage for key words and phrases. Words and phrases
that are repeated throughout the passage are usually important. Make a note
of these.
3.If there are multiple paragraphs, the first paragraph will typically be an
introduction to the topic, and will often include a brief description of what will
be discussed.
4.The last paragraph will typically close with a conclusion
5.Each paragraph will have its own topic sentence expressing the main idea.
Typically, the topic sentence is the first sentence of the paragraph (Rest of
things are supporting arguments)
6.The task of summarizing a multi-paragraph passage is sometimes made
easier by briefly summarizing each paragraph first, and then combining
these summaries into a single summary.Make a brief summary of each
paragraph as you finish reading it. You do not need full sentences at this
7.Keep your summary to a maximum of 30 words. The response box has an
indicator that will tell you how many words you have written. If you are
getting close to your word limit, but still need to write more, edit your
sentence to remove unnecessary words, especially adjectives. These can
often be omitted.
8. use punctuations like comman,colon,apastrophe, ETC. You have to use the
full stop in the end of the sentence.

Following is the strategy that I can suggest.

1. Familiarity with computer based test.

As it is computer based, time bound exam, having a better typing speed will
help. I am a software developer and can touch type, this was one of the
reason I could finish exam in two hours. So in case you have slow typing
speed try to improve it a bit.
2. Get to know each question type in all sections.
You can get information on what to expect in each question type under each
section on youtube or on (Paid). You can also learn what are
the best way to solve each question type. This is a must for good score. E.g.
reorder paragraph can be solved better using instructions given in youtube
video and they are (I heard) worth 20 points each.
3. Try to give a sample exam on web sample paper will cost you 35$ ( ~2300INR ) and it will be
exact replica of original test. You will get scores for it and will know what
sections to improve (Eg. I had low score in written discourse and so read
more on how to structure a good essay). Much better than giving exam twice.
4. Make notes on each type of questions (Very important)
I had made a list of all question types and marked them easy/medium/hard
during my preparation. I had marked re tell lecture/repeat sentence hard, but
slowly learned which questions should be made quick notes for (Re tell
lecture) and which one should only be solved based on memory (repeat
sentences). In the end I had reached all question types marked as Easy.
Believe me 3 second rule and even otherwise repeat sentence looks tough
but after practice it is one of the easy ones.
5. Make note of flow of exam.
This one is included in fourth point as well. Along with notes on each
question, make notes section wise, try to learn which question follows which
one. Describe image is followed by Retell lecture and is quite a change as Re
tell lecture sometime come with a image causing confusion. This will keep
you well prepared, though I am not sure if this same flow is always followed


August 1, 2015glorytotestingLeave a comment

Find out about T method of note taking. I think it is available on youtube.

Do not pause in the middle. Have enough jotted down that you dont have to
pause. That is my whole idea of jotting down a lot.

Use words like furthermore, in addition to that, nevertheless ,

However , Moreover , On one side. on the other side , Evidently ,
To put it in a nutshell (for conculsion) and other phrases that sound right to
start a sentence with. Use these when you finish one sentence and moving
to the other. It helps to keep the flow.
