'The Mind Virus', Ideas behaving in society ..
This is an opinion essay which means IELTS are asking you to choose a position and explain it. Don’t turn this into a discussion essay by doing both sides. You need to state clearly:
Do you think it is positive or negative for individuals?
Do you think it is positive or negative for society?
In my model essay, I said it was positive for individuals but negative for society. Always make your opinion directly and give a clear position.

Opinion Essays are about presenting a clear position and explaining it. You can see my clear opinion: “in my opinion, while I believe that such sites are mainly beneficial to the individual, I agree that they have had a damaging effect on local communities.”. I divide the individual and society – one is positive and the other is negative. It is a clear opinion.

How To Have Body Positivity Talk, Self Acceptance Essay
Any IELTS essay which asks for your opinion, is only looking for your opinion. You state what your opinion is in the introduction and then explain it in the body. No counter argument is necessary. This applies for the following instructions:
Do you agree or disagree?
To what extent do you agree?
What do you think of this opinion?
When it comes to body talk, there really is no rightest way to do it.
I have a question to ask in related to a recent exam question that you have posted. the question is, ‘Countries with longer working days are more economically successful, but there are also some negative consequences. Do you agree?’
In this essay I feel like there are three independent areas that I need to connect each other. How longer working hours develop country economy and how longer working days bring social issues.
Is this correct? Or my entire essay should be on longer working days and social issues?
I think that longer working days develop economy is a fact (according to this question) and we don’t need to describe a given fact. Just mention it only in introduction?

Firstly, I want to thank you for putting up this website. I will be taking my exam this May and I find your website very useful and easy to understand. I do have a question on the introduction of the model essay, I’m confused as when to use however in a sentence. I know it is a linking word used to contrast but from the paragraph above, is it applicable to use however? In my understanding, however is used to disagree with the first statement which is “Social networking sites, for instance Facebook, are thought by some to have had…” In this case disagreeing with it means that your opinion is that you don’t agree with the first sentence but at the end of the paragraph, you stated that you are agreeing with the statement. Shouldn’t we omit the word however instead?
