**IELTS - DISCUSSION ESSAY(TASK 2)**

The writing task in the #IELTS test is challenging. However, with practice and implementing the correct strategies, it is possible to gain a good score band.
Below is an example of a discussion essay from one of our students who executed all the strategies taught in our IELTS course.

Topic:

Some experts believe that it is better for children to begin learning a foreign language at primary school rather than secondary school.

Do the advantages of this outweigh the disadvantages?

Essay:

The discussion about whether it is more beneficial for children to learn a second language at primary or secondary school has been widely debated, with some arguing that learning a foreign language at an early age is more advantageous. While both sides have relevant arguments, it is my belief that the benefits of teaching another language to young children compensates for its downsides and is, therefore, the best approach to be taken.

That teaching children a second language during their early childhood brings several benefits is undeniable. Not only can young children learn faster and more easily, but they are also more open to acquiring new knowledge when it comes to language.

Primary school students are known for their outstanding ability to learn, as they are considered to be what is called natural learners. This is because young children are innately curious and are always keen on exploring and finding out more about the world they live in.

As a result, they learn more quickly and easily, which is great for the learning process of a new language. In addition, young children are more open to learning new things, especially language, than secondary students.

They love exploring their ability to communicate and saying things in different ways, which results in a better attitude towards learning a new language.

Their predisposition to learning makes young children great language learners, which can immensely benefit their development and future opportunities in life.

On the other hand, the drawbacks of early introduction to a new language cannot be ignored. It is important to consider that primary school students are also learning their mother tongue, and the exposure to other languages can be rather confusing.

This is due to the fact that they must process that the same object, for example, can have more than two different names and also that sometimes the same word can have different meanings.

As a consequence, they can mix up the two languages when speaking and writing and find it confusing to distinguish both ones. Furthermore, adding one more subject to an increasingly busy curriculum can be of detriment to children’s play time, which is essential for their learning journey and developmental process.

Therefore, attention must be paid when planning on how to incorporate the new language and its learning process into the children’s routine.

In conclusion, despite the potential downsides that learning a foreign language at primary school can bring, it is my belief that measures can be taken in order to address the potential issues and that an early introduction to a new language can be highly beneficial not only during their school years, but also later in their lives.

However, it is imperative that this is well-managed and that young children are not overburdened and confused by the foreign language they are acquiring.

ABBREVIATING WORDS FOR FASTER NOTE TAKING
It is no myth that the #PTEtest demands a lot of note-taking strategies, as at least 8 out of the 20 existing tasks in the test need you to put down as much information in the Erasable Noteboard given at the start of your test as possible.

Therefore, test takers need good note-taking skills to succeed.

Leaving minor words behind, such as prepositions and articles (most times), is a good strategy for your success.

What else can we do?

Ways to abbreviate words
Almost any word can be shortened during note-taking. Below are some ideas about how to do this.

1) Use the beginnings of words

One way to shorten a word is to use just the beginning of the word, for example:

Pol – Politics
Gov – Government
Sub – Subject
Info – Information
Intro – Introduction
Int – International
Nat – National

2) Use the beginnings of words with the final letter

Sometimes it can be useful to add the final letter of the word.

Some people prefer to also add an apostrophe ('), others don't.

For example:

Govt – Government
Gov't – Government
Interl – International
Int'l – International
Nat’l – National

3) Omission of vowels

Sometimes you might need to write out the whole word, but even so, you can probably leave out the vowels and still understand the word, for example:

Prblm – Problem
Schl – School
Bkgd – Background
Stdt – Student
