    Animals should not be used for the benefit of human beings, unless there is evidence that the animals do not suffer in any way.
    To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?

    There is a lot of controversy about using animals for human needs. Animal rights activists are trying to stop all modern and traditional activities, which involve killing animals or cause their suffering. Traditionalists are trying to convince the community that using living creatures for men’s needs is natural and cannot be avoided in everyday life.

    Activists, who defend animal rights, are telling the world that people should not use animals in any way. Moreover, they say that animals should have exactly the same rights as humans do. The reason is that people and animals are both living creatures and there shouldn’t be any difference in treating them. So called extreme vegans are refusing to eat any food of animal origin, even milk or honey. They are trying to persuade people to do the same using as an argument that killing animals and keeping them in captivity cause their suffering and not civilized.

    Traditionalists disagree with the statement that human should stop killing animals or using them to fulfill their needs. From the very beginning of human civilization there has been a tradition and vital need to use animals as a food and their parts in traditional crafts. Without proteins and vitamins of animal origin human body wouldn’t receive all nutrients it needs. Besides, testing some medicines on animals already helped to fight many diseases people suffered from.

    I think, people have the moral right to use animals to their benefit, to some extent. I am sure, we should not make them suffer and die for our fun. Although using animals for food is natural for humans as predators, as civilized city dwellers we should make sure to use only humane ways of treating them.

    In many countries children are engaged in some kind of paid work. Some people regard this as completely wrong, while others consider it a valuable work experience, which is important for learning and taking responsibility. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

    Nowadays, many children involved in different types of jobs to have some kind of financial assurance for themselves. However, whether this is good for their development and personality is a controversial issue. I personally believe that paid works is harmful for children for several reasons.

    It is said that children gain valuable experience in the work place. This may be true. However, I would argue that children are mainly employed in jobs that require manual work and are poorly paid. The recent statistics reveal the common tasks that children are assigned to, are washing dishes, mopping floors or serving food in restaurants. Meanwhile, these kinds of jobs actually do not provide children with necessary and useful skills to apply in their future carrier.

    On the other hand defenders of child labour argues that it is an effective method of learning. The point is children should be able to apply knowledge taught to them in a real life working environment. Although this is undoubtedly true, it also means that children may neglect the classroom study and even fail the class. The worst thing is yet to come. They may become so preoccupied with the benefits ahead of them such as small salary that they may leave school.

    In my personal point of view it helps them to build responsibility in the family. They will understand how difficult it is to earn money and therefore have compassion for their parents. This is true to a certain extent, but may have a totally adverse effect on children. As children can make money at an early age, they would feel that it is appropriate to spend it on luxury things.

    In conclusion, I think that parents should take measures to restrict their child from work, otherwise it would have negative consequences to their future.

  • پیشرفت در مهارتهای آیلتس

    چرا پیشرفت در مهارتهای  Listening  و Reading  نسبت به دو مهارت  Speaking و  Writing کندتر است؟

    اساسا مهارتهای زبان انگلیسی را به دو گروه تقسیم می کنند:
    ۱- مهارتهای Productive  یعنی زایشی که عبارتند از : Writing  و Speaking
    2- مهارتهای  Receptive  یعنی دریافتی که عبارتند از :  Listening  و  Reading
    پیشرفت در مهارتهای  Productive سریع تر اتفاق می افتد چرا که شخص آموزش گیرنده بر مبنای آموزشهای داده شده، مثلا گرامر، به قدرت تولید می رسد، به عبارت دیگر بعد از مدتی آموزش خود شخص آگاهانه جمله سازی می کند و قادر است تا اشتباهات خود را تصحیح کند و بر روی آنچه که می آموزد تسلط پیدا می کند، به عبارت ساده تر شخص نقش فعال در روند یادگیری ایفا می کند. این در حالی است که در مورد مهارتهای دریافتی چنین حالتی وجود ندارد و شخص آموزش گیرنده صرفا دریافت کننده اطلاعات بوده و نقش غیر فعال در یادگیری دارد، لذا به قدرت تولید نمی رسد و به همین دلیل روند تسلط به مهارتهای  Listening  و  Reading  نیاز به زمان بیشتری دارد.  

  • تدریس تضمینی آیلتس

    آیا می توان آیلتس را تضمینی تدریس کرد؟

    البته این سئوال به فاکتورهای مختلفی بستگی دارد. به عنوان مثال دانش انگلیسی عمومی شخصی که قرار است در این آزمون شرکت کند، به عبارت دیگر باید بررسی کرد که این شخص در حال حاضر قادر به گرفتن چه نمره ای است! و قصد دارد تا چه حدی نمره خود را ارتقا دهد. معمولا تضمین ارتقا یک نمره مثلا ۵ به ۶ در بازده زمانی ۴ تا ۶ ماه منطقی و شدنی است اما تضمین ارتقا ۲ نمره مثلا ۶ به ۸ در بازده زمانی ۵ ماهه هم غیر منطقی به نظر می رسد. نکته دیگر اینکه پیشرفت در مهارتهای  Listening  و  Reading  به مراتب کندتر از  Speaking  و Writing    خواهد بود.
