Week 3

Dear students,
Today you will read your essay about a building in class. After that you will take a small writing challenge. The topic for today is language.

Language essay question:

Every year several languages die out. Some people think that this is not important because life will be easier if there are fewer languages in the world.

To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.

After that, you will try to assess your own writing by using a public version of the IELTS essay band scores and marking criteria (task 2). Please download a copy of this and bring it to class:

IELTS Task 2 writing band descriptors

Kind regards,
Chris Elvin
