Đề thi IELTS Writing Task 1 ngày 21-03-2020
1. Sample essay
The diagram provides a breakdown of how compost is made. Overall, the making of compost involves organic wastes of different kinds undergoing various biological and chemical processes in an aerated container.
A 2-cubic-meter plastic container with four holes – two at each side – is used to contain the compost. The four holes act as vents, allowing the circulation of air in and out of the container. Next, waste is added to the container in layers of 15 centimeters, with food at the bottom, grass in the middle and newspaper on top. Nitrogen and hot water are subsequently added to the mixture.
At the fourth stage of the process, the mouth of the plastic container is sealed shut by the use of a cover. The moistened mixture is thereafter left in the container for 6 months, during which time a decomposition process gradually takes place. During the process, vapour is released through the four vents. After 6 months, the organic wastes are successfully converted into compost, and this sort of fertiliser is ultimately used in gardening.

Task 2: Watching a live performance such as a play, concert, or sporting event is more enjoyable than watching the same event on television. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?
Do you agree or disagree with this statement?
1. Sample response
When it comes to leisure activities, attending a live show has recently been claimed to be something worth doing because it is more exciting than watching it on TV. This is a statement that I find it hard to totally agree with.
Truth be told, it is certainly true that watching an art display or a sports performance on television is quite enjoyable to some extent. One of the reasons is one can lie down on a sofa without getting decently dressed while watching them. This is normally something impossible to do in public as we are supposed to behave well in this modern life of civilization.
However, watching it live, whether it is an arts event or a sports competition, is truly fascinating in a way that is indescribable. More specifically, a play, a concert, or a sports contest would be much more interesting if witnessed with our own eyes and/or listened to with our own ears based on a real-time basis. In other words, this is a matter of feelings which depend on whether that particular event is actually happening. If it is, then it will boost levels of fascination twofold or even threefold.
In conclusion, considering a comparison of what is more intriguing as a leisure activity, I tend to believe that going to an event such as those involving art or sports is far higher than watching it on television. It all relies on how 'real' it is no matter how far technology has moved forward.
