In some parts of the world, it is becoming popular to research the history of one’s own family. Why do people want to do this? Is it a positive or negative development?
IELTS: 40 minutes, 250 words at least.
PTE: 20 minutes, 200 to 300 words.
For a change, I will not write an answer but give a suitable structure along with an explanation. Firstly, IELTS is an English language test. Do not make your essay technically strong. You will be awarded bands for better expression rather than technicalities.
Firstly introduce the topic with a 40 to 50 words introduction. Do not forget to mention the reasons why people search their history. Give two reasons that you’ll explain in the body paragraphs. Let me give a sample introduction:
“History of a family is a record of the family tree extending back to several generations. People in various countries prefer researching their family background since it helps in preventing many genetic diseases and scientifically denounces the idea of racism.”
The body paragraphs should explain the above-mentioned points in greater detail.
Body Paragraph 1: Genetic diseases + example. (About 50 words)
Body Paragraph 2: Idea of racism (Similarity among all humans) + example. (About 50 words)
Body Paragraph 3: Advantages and disadvantages. (70 words)
Conclusion, as I have mentioned in several previous essays, should contain the elements of FUTURE + IMPACT. Try to keep it as positive/ optimistic as possible. For instance:
“In conclusion, developing a family tree depicting the history of a person’s family promotes the feeling of unity among people and prevents many diseases. This helps in making a community socially more stable and sustainable while promoting the ideals of unity in diversity.”
