Task 1:  

The bar chart below shows the number of houses built per year in two cities, Derby and  Nottingham, Between 2000 and 2009.

 

de1

The chart outlines the number of houses built annually in Derby and Nottingham cities from 2000 to 2009. The number of new homes in these two cities increased steadily through the years.

Looking at the data, around 95 residences were built in these two cities in 2000 with 50 of them constructed in Nottingham. In 2002, roughly 70 further houses came into existence in Derby which was considerably higher than the development of new homes in Nottingham. This trend continued until 2005 with Derby having roughly the exact number of dwellings built from 2003 to 2007. In 2006, almost no new housing went up in Nottingham. However, Derby experienced the construction of just over a 100 new homes. In 2007, the trend was reversed when roughly 190 brand new homes were built in Nottingham compared to just over 100 in Derby.

Again in 2008, another reverse case occurred when a surge in the number of new homes developed in Derby with 280 against barely 10 in Nottingham. In the last year, 250 new dwellings were added to Nottingham city while almost 350 were developed for Derby residents. Interestingly, more houses were built in Derby than Nottingham each year except in 2000, 2001 and 2007.

There is a clear overview, and key data are well-selected and extended. However, there is a lapse in the accuracy of one piece of information [The number of new homes in these two cities increased steadily] that prevented the band-score from going higher.

The message can be followed effortlessly. There is a wide range of cohesive devices [Looking at the data | This trend | another reverse case | Interestingly] and fully appropriate paragraphing.

Vocabulary is used with full flexibility and precision throughout. Style and collocation are sophisticated [came into existence | exact number of dwellings | brand new homes].

There is a wide range of structures used with full accuracy [with 50 of them constructed in Nottingham | when roughly 190 brand new homes were built | a surge in the number of new homes developed]. There is a very minor slip [a 100 new homes].

 

 

 

 

Task 2: Education for young people is important in many countries . However, others think government should spend more money for education in adult population who can not read and write. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

There is a growing argument that Governments should focus more investment on education adults and in particular, people who are illiterate as there is already enough emphasis placed on the development of young people in schools and Universities. In my opinion, I disagree with this idea for various reasons which I will illustrate in the following paragraphs.

The first argument is that children are our future. They will inherit this earth so providing the younger population with a quality education should be a priority for each individual nation.  The Importance of early childhood development cannot be ignored in terms of the evolution and growth emotionally, socially and physically of young children. This will have a direct effect on their overall development and on the adult, they will one day become. That is why understanding the need to invest in very young children is so important, so as to maximize their future well-being. Education counts more than ever in the today’s world with rapid change and technological advancement ever more present so it is children and the younger generations who must receive the most attention and care to ensure a high standard of learning.

In addition, Youngsters tend to be more intelligent and creative compared to older people. They have the advantages of more free time and more motivation to learn compared with adults so educating them is an easier task. Added benefits such as a better memory and ability to grasp knowledge in a faster and more productive way prove that young people can make the most of their opportunities and in turn contribute to society. This means that educating them is necessary for the positive growth and development of any nation.

Nevertheless, education of adults is also a need as it would help to alleviate present problems. Some investment in increasing the literacy rate does help to reduce unemployment and transform an individual’s lives. Governments should recognise the role that adult education can play in the economic and social development and as an example,  poverty reduction, etc.

To sum up, a good quality education is one that provides all learners with capabilities they require to become economically productive,  for developing sustainable livelihoods, to contribute societies and enhance individual well-being. In my view, The rewards and positives from focusing efforts on young children outweigh those of adults.
