IELTS Writing Task 2: question types
1. Opinion (point of view)
2. Discussion + opinion
3. Problem + reason+ solution
4. 2-part question
Important points to remember:
1. An 'opinion' question asks for your view, not the views of other people, and you don't have to give both sides of the argument. Just express your opinion clearly in the introduction, then explain it in the rest of the essay.
2.A 'discussion' question requires you to write about both sides of the argument, and you should write a similar amount for each view. If the question also asks for your opinion, you don't need an extra paragraph. Just make it clear in the introduction and conclusion which of the two views you agree with.
3.Type 3 is easy. Simply write a paragraph explaining the problem(s) and a paragraph explaining the solution(s).
4.For type 4, just answer the two questions. Write one paragraph about each.
