Task 1:

In Task 1 of the IELTS Academic Test, you should write a summary of at least 150 words, eliciting the information reflected in a particular graph (bar, line or pie graph), table, chart, or process (how something works, how something is done). In this task, your ability to select, identify, report, describe and compare significant information is closely tested.

Time: Approximately 20 minutes

Task 2:

You should respond to a topic. The topic is usually argumentative and challenging. You should express your ideas, outline problems, summarize the details, come up with possible solutions, and support your claims with arguments, reasons and examples based on your own experience and knowledge.

This task is even more important in the eyes of the IELTS examiners in comparison to Task 1.

  • Length: Approximately 250 words
  • Time: Approximately 40 minutes

    Would you rather be happy yet slow-witted and unimaginative, or unhappy yet bright and creative? For instance, would you rather live the life of a brilliant yet tortured artist, such as Vincent van Gogh, or that of a happy but carefree soul who is a bit simple-minded?

    I prefer to challenge this question at first and bring up my viewpoint next.
    There are different successful people in the world who reached the apex through different procedures. Although some have faced torture to reach their goals, it does not mean we have to necessarily lose something in our life to climb the ladder of success. Anyway, I suppose the most enjoyable part of life is making progress and relying on your abilities to flourish and thrive. So, I personally go for intelligence and innovation rather than happiness along with naivety. Many people have lived an ordinary life so far and repeating this story can never excite me at all. We need to gain new adventurous experiences and foster our abilities so as to break out of comfort zone.
