  4. 4. 2. Content <ul><li>Give simple facts and examples to support your ideas </li></ul><ul><li>As well, give specific reasons to support opinions. </li></ul><ul><li>Do not write about advantages and disadvantages or points for or against. </li></ul>
  5. 5. 3. Useful Language <ul><li>Giving an opinion: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>In my opinion,… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Personally, I think… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>I believe that… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>I feel very strongly that… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To my mind… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>I (completely) agree </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>disagree with… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>it seems to me that… </li></ul></ul>

  9. 9. 4. Sample <ul><li>TOP SPORTS PEOPLE TODAY EARN TOO MUCH MONEY. DISCUSS </li></ul><ul><li>Top sports people today earn huge amounts of money and in the future they’ll probably earn much more. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with this at all. </li></ul><ul><li>Sport today is big business. As a result a lot of business people make a lot of money from it. In my opinion top sports people should be free to make a lot of money from sport as well. If they’re the best in their sport, they should therefore be paid a lot. Secondly, they can only play their sport for a short time. For this reason they should be able to earn as much as possible while they can, in order to carry on living comfortably after they stop. Top sports people can earn a lot from advertising and sponsorship too. </li></ul><ul><li>Consequently, I believe that it’s practically impossible to limit the money they receive. Also, as far as I’m concerned, they are entertainers. Top entertainers have always been paid extremely well, so it seems to me that top sports people should be paid well too, so as to reward them for the pleasure they give us. </li></ul><ul><li>In conclusion, I don’t think that top sports people earn too much money because they deserve it. It is also clear that we couldn’t stop them anyway. </li></ul>
