IGCSE ESL Reading & Writing | Exercise 7 Set 2

Share this

In this example, you have been asked to write an article for your school newspaper, giving your views about the following issue: Some people think that having sports lessons at school is a waste of time.

This is an example of Exercise 7 where you have to write approximately 150–200 words of continuous prose, in response to a short stimulus (which may take the form of pictures) and/or short prompts printed on the paper. The question includes information on the purpose, format and audience, which are different from those in Exercise 6.

You should organize your writing to include an introduction, one paragraph for each idea in the middle section, and a conclusion.
