FAST WRITING TECHNIQUE: 3 EASY BUT EFFECTIVE STRUCTURES TO START YOUR IELTS ESSAY

Many people have been confessing that they spend too much time on the opening sentences which cause insufficient time to write other parts of their essay. In this post, I will show you three ways to write an opening sentence quickly but very effectively.

Structure 1:

There is a common trend that + S + V + O

When to use:

This structure is used when describing an event or thing that was or is becoming trendy so that it can exert influence on a part of the population. For example, children nowadays are exposed to technology from a very young age or more and more couples decide to have children late because of career or financial pressure.

Sample question:

Studies have suggested that children watch much more television than they did in the past and spend less time on active or creative things. What are the reasons and what measures should be taken to encourage children to spend more time on active or creative things.

Opening sentences:

There is a common trend that today children have been early exposed to TV and other types of electronic media, which is scientifically reported to bring more harm than good. In this essay, I will point out the two main reasons giving rise to this trend and put forward some feasible solutions helping children live more physically

Structure 2:

It is an undeniable fact that S+ V + 0

or

There is no denying/disputing the fact that S + V + 0

When to use:

This structure is employed when you want to describe the thing that is existing and is accepted by the vast of people. This structure will help you go straight to the question.

Sample question:

Students today can easily access information online, so libraries are no longer necessary. Do you agree or disagree?

Opening sentences:

There is no denying/disputing the fact that technology has revolutionized the ways we approach information. With a tablet or a smartphone, students can easily download and store hundreds of books in the electric format at their fingertips. As a consequence, some people think that centuries –old age of libraries is going to decline. In my view, however, no matter how prevalent digital age is, the role of the library is irreplaceable

Structure 3:

There is a growing concern that S + V + 0

When to use:

Normally, IELTS writing task 2 questions often require us to analyze two sides of the problem. Along with the positive impacts, there are also side effects which pose severe risks and may result in serious consequences. To express that concern, it is highly appropriate to apply the structure “There is a growing concern that…” when the question asks us to clarify the 2 sides of a problem.

Sample question:

Nowadays, more and more older people who need employment compete with the younger people for the same jobs. What problems this causes? What are solutions?

Opening sentences:

There is a growing concern that the young’s job titles might be threatened when senior workers now tend to steal jobs from juniors because of their experience and skills. This essay will point out the two problems of this and propose some solutions.
