Unit 14 – Task 2: “Discuss both view” format – Online Writing test preparation

Question type ‘Discuss both views …’ – Discussing 2 sides of the same problem is a very familiar topic of Writing Task 2.

Let’s analyze a few examples to better understand how to do this type of topic! ^^

Example #1:

Some people believe that robots will play an important role in future societies, while others argue that robots might have negative effects on society.

Discuss both views and give your opinion.

First view (Positive effects):

● do manual jobs quickly eg factory,packing

● cheap labor, more productive, no breaks (jobs that are boring, difficult for people)

● create free, extra time for people to spend doing what they want

● make life easier, improve our quality oflife

Second view (Negative effects):

● become dependent on robots, we will lose skills eg cooking

● less human interaction, lazy, healthproblems

● unemployment will rise, people will be replaced bymachines

eg self-service, check-outs in supermarkets eg factory robots=fewer workers

● can lead to bigger problems eg poverty, crime,etc.

Example #2:

Some people think that in the modern world we have become more dependent on each other, while others think that people are now more independent.

Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

First view (we have become more dependent):

Life is more difficult and expensive, and we are less self-sufficient

● Young people rely on their parents forlonger

● Unemployed people receive statebenefits

● Our jobs are much more specialised, and we need to work in teams

Second view (we are more independent):

● We depend on machines more than we depend on eachother

● The Internet allows us to solve problems without needinghelp

● Families are more dispersed, and therefore provide less support

● Education gives us the freedom to make our own choices

Note: First, you develop ideas, then give your own opinion.
