agree disagree question allows questions that ask to what extent do you agree or disagree this question gives you only two possible answer choices to agree or to disagree you cannot sell it to partly agree in a green circle questions your opinion must be super clear here is a band 9 ounces structure for IELTS writing task 2 our first paragraph is an introduction in the introduction you paraphrase the statement and present your opinion after the it comes but at Burger Juan in this paragraph you put the first reason our so called supporting point of your opinion then comes by the paragraph two there you write the second supporting point of your opinion and finally you write a conclusion in the conclusion you briefly summarize what you have written before now you have to choose your opinion do you agree or disagree with a statement you have two possible options first you can write that you fully agree think big salary is more important than job satisfaction our secondly you can write that you completely disagree with set and will your opinion affect your mark now well you don’t use offensive language all right some very bad things your opinion doesn’t matter to the examiner and what to do when you don’t know which opinion to pick just pick the one for which you can generate more supporting points supporting point are supported idea means your explanation of why you chose a particular opinion now let’s generate supporting points for each of our opinions our first opinion big salary is more importantly so what is our supporting ideas why big salary can be more important than job satisfaction well having a job is a high salary makes people feel satisfied no matter what kind of jobs in do is itself a supporting point and also money is essential for survival and good living okay’s it’s good you don’t need too many supporting ideas you’re three supporting ideas is enough now let’s look at our second opinion job satisfaction is more important how can we support this opinion well job satisfaction gives you a sense of fulfillment doing what you like keeps you motivated and therefore leads to a career growth and money can’t buy happiness and it’s more pleasant to push what you’re interested in that’s also very good for our sa will choose the second opinion so we will write that would disagree with the statement and the job satisfaction is more important than big salary after you decided whether you agree or disagree and generated your supporting points it’s time to start writing our essay our first paragraph is an introduction write your introduction in dual sentences in the first sentence you paraphrase the statement from your question card and in the second sentence you say whether you agree or disagree with the statement let’s write the introduction together this is our statement big salary is much more important than job satisfaction we need to introduce the statement to the examiner but you cannot simply copy it word by word that’s why we need to paraphrase it to convey the meaning with different words to start paraphrasing you can use the following expressions it is argued said it is considered that it is thought that here’s how I wrote the first sentence of our introduction it is often argued that it is more advantageous to choose a job with high-wage even if it doesn’t appeal to you at all look at how I perform the paraphrasing unlike an arts writing task 1 I did not change individual words to their synonyms in that I looked at the overall meaning of a statement and restate it the whole idea with other parts what is our statement big salary is much more important than job satisfaction or in other words it is better to take a job with big salary even if you don’t like it you see the same idea with different words and that’s exactly what I have written in my introduction it is more advantageous just means it’s better itself is high wage is assign a name to a job is big salary and even if it doesn’t appeal to you at all means even if you don’t like it after we’ve danced a paraphrase we should write the second sentence of our introduction where we say whether we agree or disagree with statement as they have decided earlier we disagree so here’s what I have written I completely disagree with this opinion and think the job satisfaction is much more important than salary as you see I did not just write I disagree apart from that I extended my opinion and wrote what I think I think that job satisfaction is much more important than salary and you should also extend your opinion so after you have written is it your agree or disagree clearly state your opinion so it’s always our introduction now we want to see better paragraphs for agree disagree questions it’s good to structure body paragraphs in the following way in body paragraph 1 right the first reason why you agree or disagree or in other words right the first Barton bond of your opinion and in body paragraph two rides the second reason why you agree or disagree your seconds about in point good news is that we have already generated our supporting points so now it should choose and it turns them for our essay let’s pick this one job satisfaction gives people a sense of fulfillment and also let’s pick this one doing what you like keeps you motivated and therefore well it’s their career gross okay now let’s start writing our body paragraphs I will give you I bent nine template to write a body paragraph sentence one state the reason why you agree or disagree sentences two and three explain your reason sentence four give an example and sentence five write a short summary of your ideas so let’s use this template together to write our first body paragraph in the first sentence you state your first reason why you agree or disagree so this sentence contains the main idea of the whole body paragraph a good way to introduce the first supporting point is to use phrase firstly or first of all and here is my first sentence first of all I believe the job satisfaction gives people a sense of fulfillment that no money can guarantee don’t change the order of your sentences in the body paragraph because your examiner will look exactly at the first sentence to get the main idea of your body paragraph so make sure that your first clearly states a reason by agree or disagree in sentences turns free we should explain our supporting point wait what does it mean to explain isn’t it already very clear well the examiner wants you to expand your reasoning so the explains our reason effectively you can imagine that your examiner has no knowledge of the subject at all and you have to explain Erol detail so imagine since examiner doesn’t understand why job satisfaction gives people a sense of fulfillment that no money can guarantee you have to give him a more detailed explanation here is how I wrote it even if salmon is earning high salary but feels danced and compromises is his conscience this person won’t enjoy his life while pursuing one’s interests will always bring pleasure and feel enough satisfaction now our supporting point is well explained and the examiners happen move on to sentence far in sentence far you should give an example to support your opinion start the sentence with phrase for example or for instance you can use an example from your own life from history or literature from the news and so on you can even make up your own example if you don’t have enough time to think of an example it’s totally ok to use your imagination and make up a story but be aware that you should create a logical example don’t make up some nonsense so here is my sentence for for example a lot of famous researchers made their career choices not because of the building of Ages but because they were passionate about science and our last sentence in the body paragraph sentence five should briefly summarize the ideas of the hull paragraph to strengthen your opinion here is my last sentence that’s why it is more important to choose the kind of work that makes you happy is into account at high salary great we have finished our first gutted paragraph let’s read it all together first of all I believe that job satisfaction gives people a sense of fulfillment that no money can guarantee even a salmon is earning a high salary but feel tensed and compromises with his conscience this person won’t enjoy his life while pursuing runs interests will always bring pleasure and feel enough satisfaction for example a lot of famous researchers made their career choices not because of the pill and wages but because they were passionate about science that’s why it is more important to choose the kind of work that makes you happy until you let high salary now we can use the same template to write our second body paragraph so in the first sentence we state the second reason why we agree or disagree analogous to our first body paragraph we will use phrase secondly to introduce the second reason for our opinion so here is my sentence one secondly do what you like keeps you motivated and therefore let’s take a real growth now we hope to explain that reason in sentences 2 and 3 again to make it easier we’ll assume that the examiner does not understand our topic at all here are my sentences 2 & 3 in other words there is a strong relation between job satisfaction and productivity people who love their jobs can easily excel their fields of work and it’s you better results than those who put salary in the first place look at how I used phrase in other words to indicate that I start writing an explanation it is a very nice technique then we write sentence four to support the idea with an example I decided to use an example of American writer Henry Miller for instance Henry Miller decided to leave his everyday job despite a good wage and ventured to become a writer and after enduring years of ups and downs he became one of the most famous and well-paid authors of the 20th century you can see that I wrote my example in two sentences instead of one it’s totally fine you can make correlations to the template but keep the correct order and know how to write the last sentence where we sum up all the ideas of this paragraph to reinforce our opinion and here’s how I wrote it thus advantages of jobs that keep you satisfied outweighs the drawbacks of love salary in a long-term perspective well done we have finished our second body paragraph now it’s time to run the last paragraph of our essay a conclusion you can write the conclusion in one sentence to start your conclusion paragraph use one of the following phrases to conclude in conclusion to sum up to summarize after that restate your opinion and do is it supported here’s how I wrote the conclusion to conclude I strongly believe the job satisfaction is more beneficial and higher salary because it makes people happy and motivated as you can see I started with the phrase to conclude showing the examiner that I start writing my conclusion paragraph then I her stated my opinion a strongly believes that job satisfaction is more beneficial than high salary and after that a briefly stated the reasons for my opinion because it makes people happy my first reason and motivated my second reason the conclusion paragraph shortly summarizes all previous ideas without given new information this I remember you should not put new thoughts or ideas into your conclusion you have already put your ideas into the body paragraphs that’s it we have finished writing our bed nine essay you’ve done a really great job
