This week’s writing exercise is an IELTS Task 2 question that appeared in 2016.
Some people believe government should spend money on building train and subway lines to reduce traffic congestion. Others think that building more and wider roads is the better way to reduce traffic congestion. Discuss both views and give your opinion.
As a starting point, remember that for this type of question there is no need to give your opinion in the introduction (otherwise you end up repeating yourself). In addition, once you have paraphrased the two sides of the argument, make sure that your body paragraphs do no repeat what you have already paraphrased.
As always, feedback and comments are welcome.
