Please if someone can tell me their opinion on this essay

An IELTS essay should be between 270 and 290 words more or less. Your introduction alone is around 90 words instead of 40 to 50. You’ve also included creative, imaginative ideas – spider and webs – this is inappropriate for an IELTS essay. You’ve clearly got good English but you won’t even hit 7 unless you learn the right techniques. I highly suggest you think of getting my opinion essay lesson to learn the right techniques:

Hello there Liz, I think this is a discussion essay so my question is, can I freely give my opinion on what side I am for as a conclusion even though it wasn’t asked? Thank you. =)

Thanks for sharing 🙂 I don’t really understand your point about it being safer – large apartment blocks can have serious fire risks as was shown in the UK in 2017 when 17 people died in a fire. But you are 100% that this is essay requires your opinion. It is also good to explain why the disadvantages are not so important.

hi Liz,
i have a question or you can say confusion specifically related to this model essay. you see question asked about how far you agree with the topic, in my opinion before reading the model answer most of us including me would have chosen a side either agree or disagree. but now my question is you’re partially supporting that’s individual benefits at the same time you’re also talking about negative impacts on society. so in this situation i’m not sure how to do this agree and disagree for the same topic… could we have gone the other way around like conventional way of choosing one side?
