    The given table presents information on number of children a woman aged 40-44 had and covers a period of 35 years starting from 1981. The percentage of women having zero,one,two, three,four or more children has been tabulated. Overall, there had been a decreasing trend on number of children a woman gave birth to.
    In 1981, largest fraction of women had two children. However, this number was just slightly higher than that for women having more than three children or women having three children. The position remained same for the given time period with about eight percentage point increase after 25 years.
    55 per cent of Australian women of the given age group had more than three children in 1981. By 2006 this figure has reduced drastically so that only close to one third of women having three or more children existed. The percentage of women who were childless had nearly increased two-fold while the percentage had more than halved for women who gave birth to four or more children.

    Tourism is a major income generator for many of the countries around the globe.This industry has brought about many positives as well as some negatives to the countries that rely on it. In the following paragraphs I will discuss both advantages and disadvantages and present my opinion towards the end of the essay.

    First, there is no doubt that hospitality industry is a major portion of economy of many countries and numerous people in addition to the governments benefit from it. Tour operators, hoteliers, tour guides as well as local people who reside close to tourist attractions rely on the visitors for their income. There exists some countries like Maldives that depend almost entirely on tourism.

    Second, many historical places have been developed and remain secure due to tourism. for example Buddhist pilgrimage sites in India have been developed and preserved mainly due to the income generated from visitors and many locals benefit from it. Further, the infrastructure around such sites have been developed by the governments so that many people have found their lives easier because of this added benefit generated by tourism.

    However, tourism can also bring some negatives with it. Some areas have experienced ecological damage due to excessive influx of tourists. For example, in our country some coral reefs have been destroyed due to uninformed tourists diving among them. Further, some people have felt their culture threatened due to mingling with large number of tourists.Nevertheless, these problems can be mitigated if the governments properly intervene and put some control on number of tourists visiting those sites and enlightening them appropriately.

    In conclusion, Considering both sides, I would like to say that tourism is more beneficial to counties provided that the governments take actions to mitigate the harmful effects that it can associate with.

      You should give you opinion in the introduction to make it clear for the examiner. First line of second paragraph is not correct industry cannot be a portion of people. Infrastructure has been not have been. Try to make conclusion a bit more elaborate and use better vocabulary.

    The table reveals the information regarding,australian women of age group between 40 to 44 years who gave every year birth to seed and this information had taken since 1981.
    To sum up,birth ratio of one offspring,two seed,three children and no child witnessed an upward trend while,the percentage of four and more children went through holistically opposite trend during the mention period of the years.However,the proportion of three offspring passed through many fluctuations in the given four years.
    According to the table,the ratio of the women who had no seed was 8.5% in the year of 1981 and it raised slightly each given year and it was nearly two fold,15.9% in 2006.Furthermore,percentage of one seed increased gradually from 1981 to 2006.it was 13.2 in the last year which was approximately two times that of the year 1981(7.6%). Whilst the birth ratio of two offspring remained relatively constant in 2006 and 1996,it smoothly grew up from35.6% to 29% in the year of 1986 and 1981.
    With regards to proportion of three children born by women,was more than two tenth in 2006 while,the ratio inclined by 3% points in the year 1996,1986,1981.Also, the proportion of four and more children born by females declined from well over a quarter in the year 1981 to nearly one tenth in 2006.

    • IELTS MASTER says:

      Do not use the word seed for children. Write the information is for four different years. For 3 children the trend is not upward rather the % is declining for this in the table. There is no fluctuation for 3 children it is downward trend. In the last paragraph you have given wrong trend always start with the first year that is 1981 and then move towards the latest year 2006 as you have done for other data points.

  5. Rinal kansara says:

    Sir can i use here the word like an upward trend I know I have written wrong trend but if it was correct can i use trend word here?

  6. Rinal kansara says:

    I can’t use word deed for children in task 2 sir?

    The given table highlights the percentages of childbearing mothers in their forties in Australia in the period of twenty five years. Overall, it can be observed that the proportion of women without a child, those with one child and two children showed an increasing trend, while mothers with three and more offsprings displayed an opposite trend, however females with two children were the majority throughout the period.

    At the beginning of the period, women with two children were the largest in 1981, being 29.0%, followed by those with four or more and three children which stood at 27.6% and 27.4% respectively, then females with no baby being 8.5% and the least were those with one offspring, having 7.6%. In 1986, women with two children increased their percentage to 35.6%, while mothers with three and above three decreased their proportion to 27.0% and 18.9% respectively, however females without a child and those with one child rose to 9.7% and 8.7% respectively, but were the lowest.

    In 1996, the trend with respect to each group continued from 1986, and at the end of the period in 2006, women with two children maintained their top spot reaching 38.3%, the next were mothers with three offsprings declining further to 21.5%, followed by females without a child and those with one child surging to 15.9% and 13.2% respectively, and the least among them were mothers with above three children decreasing to 11.0%.

    • IELTS MASTER says:

      Not in the period of 45, for the period of 45 years. ‘women with two children were the largest’ is wrong phrase here women were not the largest the percentage or proportion of these women was the largest, same applies for the least. Women did not increase their percentage rather the percentage of women increased, there is a difference between the two sentences. In the last sentence you have written above three children which is correct but it might confuse the examiner so use the terms which are used in the table only that is four or more children.

    Tours and travel done for either leisure or business work in favor of the economy. For a few countries, tourism is the major source of income and hence is advantageous to a country. The country should encourage tourism but it will also have few drawbacks.

    One evident benefit of tourism is to the people who solely rely on tourists for their income. The livelihood of people like tourist guides, travel planner, vendors get immensely affected during offseason with minimal or no tourism. Secondly, tours are a very good opportunity to learn about the culture and traditions of the particular country the tourists are visiting as well as the tourists come from different parts of the world with different cultures and bring diversity to the country.

    On the other hand, there are obvious drawbacks to tourism. Firstly, with increased tourism, a country is more likely to encounter many kinds of violent and criminal activity. Another reason is that with more number of people there is a possibility of more waste products like plastic bottles, eatables, etc not discarded in the way it is supposed to. These litter is polluting the environment as well as destroying the scenic beauty.

    In conclusion, while there are plus points of encouraging tourism, a lot would be lost as a result if not controlled. Thus, along with tourism both the locals and tourists should understand the importance of preserving the environment in its natural form rather than creating an artificial environment. People need to inculcate the habit of proper waste disposal in order to be able to enjoy God’s creation.

    It is a fact that tourism is a backbone of the economy.Since now a days several transportation modes are available ,people often desire to visit beautiful places.However visitors stay for few days at tourist places, tourism is beneficial for the country.So,In the following section this view will be discussed.(tourism has both pros and cons, advantages far outweigh disadvantages and in the following section i will discuss its positive influences)(sir is it correct sentence?I mean can I write the sentences bracket?or if I write,i have to mention both?and when I write both,then write equal points for both?can I write more for positive and less for negative?)

    To commence with,tourism is certainly beneficial for the society owing to that, all wonderful places require maintenance regularly and there are other liabilities on the shoulder of the government.Therefore, government spend the huge monetary value in improving tourist places from the money of visitors which visitors spend as entry fees.Secondly,plenty of local people get job opportunities as visitors spend money in transportation, accommodation and food.Hence,it definitely improves the living standard of local people.To illustrate,in India, every day approximately 25,000 people visit the ancient temple of Sai Baba which is located in Shirdi in Maharashrta and stay for few days. As a result, tourism has changed the small village Shirdi in big city,it developed holistically.

    Another point to consider is,when visitors interact with local people,they know their culture,customs,language and the history of the region. Consequently,the region and language become famous in the world.Also,local people learn their new language, aware of tradition and become multiculture. Thus, tourism has great impact on the society.

    To recapitulate,although tourist do not visit often as compared to local people,individuals earn more money and the infrastructure of the country is developed.Hence,tourists plays vital role in escalating the economy of the country.

    • IELTS MASTER says:

      Never write any sentence in bracket. There is no compulsion to write about advantages of disadvantages only. If you want to write about both then write about that part first for which you can make more points for example if you can make more points for advantages then write about it first and then about disadvantages.

      ‘become multiculture’ mutliculture is wrong word. Tourists play not plays. Nice attempt.

  10. Rinal Kansara says:

    Can I write that people embrace multiculture? And sir let me know this sentence.people have become a workaholic or people have become workaholics? And we both r workaholics? workaholics with plural?
