Many people make friends through social sites and chat rooms. Others believe that it is not a good idea to make friends without meeting them face to face. Do you agree or disagree with this statement? Give your own opinion and relevant examples.
IELTS: 40 minutes, 250 words at least.
PTE: 20 minutes, 200 to 300 words.
Instead of writing an answer, let me present a structure and help you write better.
Introduction: The question statement presents two views. Since you’re supposed to write 40 to 50 words in the introduction (2 sentences), I’ll suggest writing an introductory sentence on friendship and/ or social media and the second sentence on your opinion (agree or disagree). Do not forget to mention the reasons supporting your opinion. Explain these in the body paragraphs.
“With the advancement of technologies such as smartphones and the Internet, people spend a lot of time on social media. Though some people believe in making friends only after a personal interaction, I strongly support the idea of making friends online since it is not only more convenient but also helps develop friendships with people from diverse backgrounds.” (58 words.)
Body Paragraph 2: Use this paragraph to EXPLAIN the reason 1 (Convenient) and try writing an example. Please write about 70 to 90 words – 4 to 5 sentences.
Body Paragraph 3: Use this paragraph to EXPLAIN the reason 2 (people from diverse backgrounds) along with an example. Please write about 70 to 90 words – 4 to 5 sentences.
Conclusion: Finally, it is time to write a powerful and scoring conclusion. Please make sure that the conclusion is not the same as an introduction. While the introduction is meant to convey the ideas that will be discussed in the body paragraphs, the conclusion is used to express ideas for the FUTURE. Conclusion, thus, goes beyond the essay topic. Please write a conclusion in about 40 to 50 words – 2 sentences.
“In conclusion, making friends on social media is an excellent way to network and gain insights about various cultures and countries. It is a convenient way to resolve international and inter-cultural conflicts, and create a sustainable society.” (37 words.)
