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.
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 it is better to live in one place all your life, but others think that it is better to experience life in different places.
Here are two of the comments already made:
- “It is better to live in other places so that you learn more about the world.”
- “You have closer friends if you stay in the same place.”
Write an article for your school magazine, giving your views on this issue.
