Crime – IELTS Writing Exercise


Hi everyone.

This week’s IELTS writing exercise is one that a number of students have attempted recently.  Consider the reading from yesterday’s exercise as well as the vocabulary list.

vocabulary list will help in your reading of the article on crime.  You should also look for opportunities to include some of these terms in your writing.

Write about the following topic:

In many cities crime is increasing.  Why do you think this is happening?  What can governments do to help reduce crime levels?

Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.


For registered users, I will be sharing my own attempt at this question over the weekend.

As always, feedback and comments are welcome.

Good Luck!
