The question states “or” which means you choose, it does not state “and” which means both. Don’t over think the instructions. They are clear and ask you to choose one or the other.
All the best
Hello Liz. Thank you for all your free lessons.
Presenting a balanced view is not easy and requires training as well as very good English. I would recommend going for either agree 100% or disagree 100% unless you feel confident in your English. At no time can you completely agree and completely disagree at the same time.
I don’t always like David’s arguments when he is annoyed but the points you made are unreasonable. The child will not be the one reading this and it is hardly harsh. The insult here is perceived and would be so no matter the words used. Witness responses to Greg Ashman’s blog posts. Reread the style and nature of the arguments made on both sides (on different blogs-ignore the content at the moment focus in the style). You will see this kind of outrage is normal irrespective of how ideas are presented.
Thanks liz it helps me most to solve every confusion……

In the essay, if I find out that I missed some words in a sentence, can I use an arrow to indicate and add back those words on top of that sentence? Will the examiner consider those words?
Hi, I'm Liz. Welcome to my IELTS tips, model answers and practice
I just have a question that if we get a cue-card in speaking on a topic that we know very less or nothing, what to do? Like I was browsing your blog and I came across one cue card on lexicography, i did not know about it. Though, I know about it now, but if such situation arises, what do we say?
How many paragraphs in an IELTS Writing Task 2 Essay?
I have not seen a cue card on lexicography. If you mean my video lesson, that was speaking part 1 which are basic questions about you – how often do you use dictionaries, why do you use them, are they useful etc. You will not get that topic for part 2. So, relax. You need to pay more attention to understanding the speaking test!!! See my main page and learn about topics:
Thanks a bunch for your prompt response. God bless you.. 🙂
Draft? You are referring to your plan?? How you plan your essay is your choice. The plan is written on the question paper and the examiner doesn’t see it. You do not write a full draft of an essay – never. Only a plan.
Your comment will be appreciable.Thanks in advance.
Is it ok to have a balanced opinion to opinion essays or agree disagree
Can I have a partly agree opinion
Or I just need to stick at 1 side
