Tuần này ra bài Task 2 cũ, không còn lạ lùng gì nữa đối với rất nhiều bạn. Bài này có nhiều cách viết, mình sẽ đưa cách viết khá khó (diagree hoàn toàn). Task 1 thì cũng không khó lắm, dạng bài mix thì mỗi hình cũng khá dễ nên bạn nào thi hôm nay cũng ok đây :)))

Task 1

Mixed = Table + Pie

The information below gives details about household income and spending on food and clothes by an average family in one UK city in 2010 and 2013.

Note: Đơn vị của table là Bảng Anh ( £)

The table provides information pertaining to the proportions of men and women, of various ages, who rode bikes in a town in 2011.

Overall, women of all ages were more likely than men to use bicycles whilst children and teenagers aged 0-17 were more likely to use bikes than adults.

In the youngest age group (aged 0-9), just over half of both girls (51.3%) and boys (50.3%). The figure for older girls aged 10-17 was somewhat lower, at just over two-fifths (42.2%) whereas for boys it was significantly lower by more than half to just under a quarter (24.6%).

In the adult age group, the figures for women varied between 18.5% for those aged 60 and over and 12.3% for women between the ages of 40 and 59, with the proportion of women aged 18-39 who used bikes at 17.1%. these figures were higher than the corresponding percentages for men, though the pattern was the same, with men aged 60 and over most likely to use bicycles 13.2%, with those aged 40-59 the least likely (8%), and 9.7% of men aged 18-39 using them.

Task 2

The only way to improve the safety of our roads is to give much stricter punishments for driving offenses. What extent do you agree or disagree?

Bài bên dưới này được viết theo dạng Disagree, nên với một số bạn hay viết dạng Balanced thì khá khó nắm bắt dàng bài. Vì thế, mình thấy thêm 1 bài của thầy Simon đây, bạn có thể xem thảo khảo (tuy nhiên dạng câu hỏi là Discussion chứ không phải Opinion)

Careless driving and violation of traffic rules certainly result in a large number of accidents, and it is argued that the only solution to reduce them is strictly punishing reckless drivers. However, I disagree with this opinion and believe that there are other measures that are equally effective in ensuring road safety.

In the first place, there are certain accidents that occur not because of traffic violations.  To explain it further, poor road condition is considered a major reason for road casualties.  For example, narrow roads and sharp curves often force even law-abiding drivers makes mistakes.  Therefore, it should be noted that drivers alone cannot be blamed for such mishaps and giving them stricter punishments in these cases is no solution.  A more effective strategy by the government would be to straighten accident prone curves and widen narrow roads.  A larger number of road signs and proper traffic signals can also be effective in reducing accidents on roads.

Furthermore, poor climate condition can be a major cause of accidents.  For instance, poor visibility due to dense mist and rain, slippery roads on account of snowfall cause make driving difficult and cause serious accidents in many countries.  Stricter punishment for drivers is a futile exercise in handling such problems.  Modern technological innovations on cars’ wheels or on road design should be used to deal with such emergency situations.

On the other hand, reckless driving, speeding, and breach of traffic rules by careless drivers have caused many accidents.  Moreover, drunken and drowsy driving has also resulted in serious traffic mishaps.  While we admit that more stringent punishment for drivers would be an effective measure to an extent, it should not be considered the only way towards road safety.

In summary, there are certain situations where drivers are not responsible for a particular accident.  Hence apart from punishing drivers with heavier penalties other effective measures should also be taken.
