How are IELTS essay questions commonly constructed?




IELTS essay questions are commonly constructed to test a candidate's ability to present and develop an argument in response to a specific topic.


The questions usually have two parts, and candidates are expected to address both parts of the question in their essay.

The first part of the question typically presents a statement or a general topic, and the second part of the question asks the candidate to respond to or discuss the statement or topic.


For example, a common question format could be:

"Many people believe that technology has made our lives easier. Do you agree or disagree with this statement? Discuss both sides and give your own opinion." In this question, the first part of the question presents a statement or topic, and the second part of the question asks the candidate to respond to it and discuss both sides of the argument before presenting their own opinion.

Another common question format is a problem/solution essay question, which presents a problem and asks the candidate to provide possible solutions. For example: "In many countries, there is a growing trend towards young people becoming increasingly overweight and unfit. What do you think are the causes of this trend, and what can be done to tackle the problem?" In this question, the first part of the question presents a problem, and the second part of the question asks the candidate to identify the causes and propose solutions to address the problem.

Overall, IELTS essay questions are designed to test a candidate's ability to think critically, organize their thoughts and arguments, and present them in a clear and coherent manner.
