Owing to the problems which a growing population of overweight people cause for the health care system, some people think that the key to solving these issues is to have more sport and exercise in schools. In my opinion, I completely agree that this is the best way to tackle the issue of deteriorating public health in relation to weight.

Hi Liz,
I got confused with this question: Do you think this is a positive or negative development?
Should I write 1 body paragraph about the advantages, 1 for disadvantages and state my opinion whether it is positive or negative in general?
Or should I give 2 reasons in 2 body paragraph to support one side only? (just like the agree/disagree structure)?
Thanks in advance 🙂

Your essay should be formal in content, not informal.

No more than three words means one word, two words, three words but not four. Please see my 25 tips for listening on the main listening page.
All the best

Dear can we use obesity for overweight ?

There is no word limit for any paragraph but as the introduction only needs two statements, it is usual to write only around 40 to 50 words. Writing more isn’t really worth the time or effort. Paraphrasing is about changing word order, active to passive, noun to adjective etc.
All the best

can’t we discuss like agree and dis agree and concluded them at once

Thank you for sharing so much information about IELTS. Your method of explaining things is very effective.
I wanted to ask if it’s okay to write over 50 words in the introduction in task2 writing. Would there be any negative marking for going beyond that limit?
Also, I would like to know if you can just simply change active to passive or viceversa to paraphrase along with keeping a few original words as it is to write background statement?

Thanks liz it helps me most to solve every confusion……

It is a question that you must answer. “Do you think it is a positive OR negative development?” is not the same as “write about the positive AND negative developments”. Just read the question and answer it. Does it ask you to choose or write about both?
