Model Answer – IELTS (Task 2)

To get a good job today, it is more important for children to study mathematics and foreign languages than art and music.

To what extent to you agree or disagree with this opinion?

The job market has become highly competitive today. In order to get a good job with a high salary, attractive working environment and conditions it is necessary to have the appropriate qualifications, experience and character depending on the field.

Due to globalization, the ease with which people work abroad, the need to communicate for conducting business and the lowering of barriers to trade such as the formation of the European Union, studying a foreign language has become a necessity rather than a leisure activity. Those who are fluent in languages such as English, Spanish, and Chinese have a competitive advantage over other candidates. Similarly mathematics is a core subject and very useful in everyday life. We perform simple calculations in all types of activities like shopping, budgets etc.

On the other hand, art and music are equally important as they support creativity and expression which are a requirement for good health. Even though these are creative subjects, in modern society they are highly valued and it is possible to find a good job in this sector. Let us not forget the large sums made by those in the music business and what lengths art dealers go to in order to secure priceless works of art.

Even though parents are concerned with the future of their children, I believe they should study the subjects that they enjoy and are good at. In that way they will find work that expresses them and they will be successful in their chosen field.
