Writing Task 1

Dear John,

I am glad you have finally agreed to learn driving. As imentioned before, obataining a driving license is beneficial for several reasons.

First, it makes you an authorized driver who can be trusted to drive safely on the roads for your benefits and that of others.

second, the training provides a lot of knowledge and skills that makes driving enjoyeable and fun.

it allows you drive in any city accross the entire country and other countries where our locally-issued driving licensed is formally recognized.

The Aretha driving school is the one I used for my training. They make driving look so easy for a first timer like you. Their methods of teaching are easy to comprehend and they use relateable methods to help you understand road signs and directions.

Driving is not very difficult. It just requires you to understand the make-up of cars, pay attention to their health and follow the rules when you are driving.

Finally, In taking decisions and actions during driving, the "safety first" philosophy should be your guide.

Please let me know when you submit your application.

Your Sincerely,


Task 2

You should spend about 40 minutes on this task.

Write about the following topic:

Should long-term job seekers in receipt of government benefits be made to do voluntary work so that they give something back to the community?

Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.

You should write at least 250 words.

A volunteer work is one that is done out of a desire to help and not in exchange for a compensation or reward. It is very important in our society because not all aspects of our human endeavours are covered by services of public/government or private institutions.

It is also laudable that governments do provide benefits to unemployed citizens to support their living standards. However, making these unemployed citizens to engage in volunteer activities because of these benefits is not satisfactory to me for several reasons.

Firstly, volunteer activities provcides some sense of accomplishment which humans derive from being helpful and supportive to others. That sense of purpose will be lost. For example, in developing countries like mine in Africa, the government is rather investing a lot more in providing capital to unemployed or disadvantaged families to engage in business activities at the micro level.

Second, the conversation of exchanging volunteer work for benefits payment will bring up other conversations like how adequately does the benefits amount cover the volume and value of volunteer work done? Negotiations will begin and before you know it, under-employed individuals are pitching for the same work if the compensation is better than what they get. It may be retrogressive.

Thridly, It is always more beneficial to the country for the Government to continue to provide the enabling environment for reduction in unemployment. It has its economic advantages like increased demand for goods and services and more economic activities which leads to growth in the long run. Economic empowerment should be the focus of the government.

In conclusion, an alternative way to manage this process is for the government to provide incentives to non-profit making Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to reach out to these unemployed individuals to engage in acts of service that improve their immediate communities.
