The table below shows the salaries of secondary/high school teachers in 2009. Summarize the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparison where relevant.

You should write at least 150 words.

Writing Task 1

In 2009 researchers compiled data consisting information of the salaries of teachers in different regions. They also considered the various incr,ents given to the teachers over the course of their career.

In Australia the general pay allotted for teachers is $28,000, annually which after 9 years of service is increased to $48,000. In European countries like Denmark and Luxembourg the standard pay is 45,000 and 80,000 and after spending 8 and 30 years in the profession the teacher's pay reaches its maximum of 54,000 and 119,000, respectively.

However, in the Far Eastern countries like Japan teachers are paid 34,000 Yen and reach a maximum of 65,000 after 37 years of service. While in Korea they receive a remuneration of 30,000 Won annually and may reach the maximum amount allotted after 34 years which is 48,000 Won.

In comparison the European countries are most generous towards locating remunerations to the indoviuals in tutoring professions. Yet in Far East countries the service period is quite extensive with a very low income for the teacher. This is quite surprising given the amount of emphasis laid on learning and teaching in light of traditional Japanese and Korean values.

Task 2

You should spend about 40 minutes on this task.

The tendency of news reports in the media to focus more on problems and emergencies rather than on positive developments is harmful to the individuals and the society as a whole.

To what extent do you agree or disagree?

You should write at least 250 words.

For centuries the concept of news has existed in one way or another. First public announcements then with the invention of paper came the concept of newspapers and eventually, after the invention of electricity and television came the idea of making news channels for announcing information in real time to the many viewers across the world.

News channels on a vast basis are considered an excellent idea for publisicing events. Yet many concur. Though on the surface these media outlets and newspapers seem a great source of information yet they lead to many disruptions, chaos and mass hysteria in society. Channels and newspapers rely on large numbers of audiences for generating mass revenue. It's safe to say their motto is 'if you want to earn more you need to get to more people' and to achieve this they are willing to make a mountain out of a mole hill. They'll point out the most horrific things to make more people listen to their bulletins and talk shows. They'll talk about economic crisis, financial deficits, tsunamis, hurricanes and poverty. Yet with that they lack in focusing on the good in the world like China's efforts in saving the Pandas from extinction or the anonymous donations given to rebuild Haiti after massive earthquakes. The news does not focus on the good.

The lack of focusing on the good leads to a major societal tension and disruption. People become tense and nervous about the most simplest things like not parking the car inside the garage at night just because the news said that there was a car thief on the loose. Even if the so called thief was just some guy trying to get back in his car because he left the keys inside. Just like that a simple scenario becomes a major disaster. The spread of such negative news rarely leads to positivity, it's not like people will arrange seminars to raise awareness of how car stealing is a bad thing, in reality people living in a close community for years will become far more suspicious of each other. So to conclude the spread of bad news only leads to societal tension not progression.
