Here is our #IELTS Task 2 Writing Essay for this week.

Here is the Question:

Some people think that school children need to learn practical skills such as car maintenance or bank account management along with the academic subjects at school. To what extent do you agree or disagree?


Here is the student answer:

Increasingly, young students are being aware of learning new aptitudes in addition to their school curriculums. The question is, is learning car maintenance or managing a bank account is pivotal at this age? In my opinion, it is not essential at this point.

First of all, there are several benefits of acquiring a new skill. The first merit is personal development. For example, if someone learns playing guitar at school initially, it can be rewarding at a later stage of their life if they take it professionally. As a result, the chance of being successful in life is much higher. The second point is how this learning would impact society in general. When all students are equipped with some sort of knowledge outside their syllabus, they would not be a liability to the society anymore. Instead, they start contributing to the economy. Finally, this hands-on ability will make a nation standout among others and lead towards outstanding growth.

On the other hand, catering practical skill has some drawback too. The most important issue is, it will need extra time which can hinder core subjects to learn. For example, if learning vehicle maintenance is the skills to acquire, it will take number of hour’s to undergo practical sessions besides major classes. Another issue is workload. Is it plausible to give school going children extra load while they have already have enough to do in order to get a good grade? Most parents would argue that pushing them to learn extra-curricular will have a negative effect as not all students are interested to such activities. Likewise, students do not need to learn how to open a bank account as those are dealt by their parents.

In conclusion, although there are many benefits to learn something new, considering the extra-time needed to learn and excessive study load to achieve competitive marks, it is not a good idea to teach them at school.

Overall: 7.5
