Phần cuối cùng trong series tổng hợp 50 mở bài mẫu band 7.0-8.0 ở IELTS Writing do thầy Tú Phạm biên soạn sẽ viết về hai chủ đề “cao cấp” hơn, đòi hỏi người học phải có kiến thức nền vững chắc. Cùng IPP đến với bài viết sau đây và theo dõi cách thầy Tú xử lý phần mở bài cho các đề bài khó nhằn này nhé!


Supporting Artists

Some people think that governments should give financial support to artists, musicians and poets. Others think that it is a waste of money. Discuss both views and give your opinion.


Governmental finance as a form of support for artists has evolved into a major topic of concern in modern society. While some believe there are real benefits to this policy, there is stronger evidence why this is a waste of financial resources.


Helping developing countries

Some people think that developing countries need financial help from international organizations. Others think that it is a practical aid and advice that is needed. Discuss these views and give your own opinion.


The support of the international community is of paramount importance to the development of less-developed parts of the world. Some people believe that funded support is indispensable. However, there is stronger evidence why international funds are not necessary for development while technical assistance is arguably a more effective way of helping developing countries.


Tax on Fast food

In some countries, an increasing number of people are suffering from health problems as a result of eating too much fast food. It is therefore necessary for governments to impose a higher tax on this kind of food. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?


Recently, the increasing presence of fast food has caused many policymakers to consider specific taxation schemes that may fundamentally reduce the consumption of this type of food. However, there is strong evidence why taxation is not only ineffective in stopping people from consuming fast food but also disadvantageous to some group of people.


Banning dangerous sports

Some people think that governments should ban dangerous sports, while others think people should have freedom to do any sports or activity. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.


The media commonly provide a barrage of news about dangerous sports, because the deaths and injuries associated with them often make for spectacular headlines. As a result, some people have claimed that all extreme sports should be banned, there is stronger evidence why such a policy would be out of all proportion to the real risks involved.


Sports stars as role models

Nowadays, young people admire sports stars though they often do not set a good example. Do you think this is a positive or negative development?


Although top sports athletes are often poor role models, it is undeniable that they are the source of admiration of millions of young people. Despite any possible benefits, this is overall a negative trend for the young generation and society because the young may start to imitate undesirable personal traits of those superstars and follow their materialistic lifestyle.


Lack of respect

There is a general increase in anti-social behaviours and lack of respect for others. What are the causes and solutions?


The widespread presence of anti-social behaviour and disrespectful attitudes towards others has long been a prevalent issue in society today. This often derives from the indifference of parents towards their children’s moral development, and sometimes from social problems such as violence and discrimination which exist in many parts of the world. This situation should be addressed by strong remedies, including better parental education and stricter law enforcement against violent and discriminatory activities in society.


Luck and Success

Whether or not someone achieves their aims is mostly by a question of luck. To what extent do you agree or disagree?


The debate whether luck is the primary determinant of success in achieving targets has been heated constantly. Evidence has suggested that hard work and determination are far more important than luck, while luck must not be considered as the main precursor of the attainment of one’s goals.



Some people say that zoos have no useful purpose. Others believe that zoos are beneficial in many ways. Discuss and give your opinion.


A diversity of animal species from leopards and eagles to lizards have been captured and kept in zoos across the globe for centuries. This practice is sometimes considered to be one that violates animal rights and causes these animals to lose their instincts. Despite these drawbacks, zoos are still beneficial, as they provide humans with a great place to learn about animals, and endangered animals with a great shelter.



Nowadays people use bicycles less as a form of transport. Why is that? What can we do to encourage people to use bicycles more?

Cycling has long been considered an effective way of improving physical health and reducing the risk of obesity. However, in recent decades, there has been a prevalent trend for people to use bicycles less to commute. This trend could be ascribed to the overdependence on motorised vehicles and the shortage of dedicated paths for bicycles. To address this problem, the government should impose a tax on cars and motorcycles, and use this money to construct more bicycle lanes.


Public Transport

Some people believe the government should spend money on building train and subway lines to reduce traffic congestion. Others think that building more and wider roads is the better way to reduce traffic congestion. Discuss both views and give your opinion.


The methods of mitigating traffic congestion have become a heated topic of controversy. Some people argue that the construction of larger roads is the answer to the problem. However, such a solution is ineffective in the long term, while the option to construct railways and subways is a far better measure.



Digital Communication

Many people think modern communication technology is having some negative effects on social relationships. Do you agree or disagree?

Modern communication devices have long been an indispensable tool providing people with instant access to telecommunication. These devices often interfere with the bonding time that people share and thus has a negative influence on interpersonal relationships.


Digital Communication 2

Some people think that increasing communication usage of computers and mobile phones by young people has had a negative effect on their reading and writing skills. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

Digital communication methods such as emails, text-messaging and virtual social networks have been helping billions of people write and read messages on a daily basis. Although appearing to support reading and writing skills at first glance, these means of communication have a negative impact on one’s overall ability to read and write.



There have been many inventions in human history, such as the wheel. Some people think the most important thing is the internet. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?


In the ancient era, the human race discovered how to create fire, invented the wheel and laid the foundation for today’s printing technology. Later on, in the industrial era, they built more complex machinery and started to use motorised vehicles. Although all these facilities have proved their great significance to all mankind throughout history, some state that the single most important invention is the Internet. Despite some benefits of the Internet, such a statement is an exaggeration, as there are event greater inventions, such as electricity, engines and mobile phones.



In the future, it seems more difficult to live on the Earth. Some people think more money should be spent on researching other planets to live, such as Mars. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?


Whether the future of humankind is right here on Planet Earth or elsewhere in the universe is a great concern of many people. Some of them claim that life on Earth is increasingly difficult due to huge problems such as global warming and air pollution. While these problems are real, it is unwise to invest in research on other planets which might be suitable for humans to migrate to. Instead of wasting money on such research, more financial resources should be allocated to improving the planet humans are living on.


Space 2

Some people believe that spending money on developing technology on space exploration is unjustifiable and there are more beneficial ways to spend this money. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?

Exploring the universe has long been a topic of controversy as many do not see a clear benefit of it. Some further argue that investments into space technology are wasteful, and that that money should be directed to other fields such as solving energy problems. On this matter, evidence has proven otherwise.


Animal Testing

Nowadays animal experiments are widely used to develop new medicines and to test the safety of other products. Some people argue that these experiments should be banned because it is morally wrong to cause animals to suffer, while others are in favour of them because of their benefits to humanity. Discuss both views and give your opinion.


Conducting experiments on animals is commonplace in the world today. This practice, according to some, is beneficial because it helps develop drugs and general products which are safer for humans to consume. Although these benefits are tangible, they are far less significant than the sufferings of the animals involved in the tests. It is, thus, imperative that all forms of animal testing are forbidden by law.


Storing user information

In this technological era, personal information is held on computers by many companies and organisations. Do you think the advantages outweigh the disadvantages?


The practice of storing private information of users on companies’ servers is a major topic of concern these days. Although there are some benefits to consider for both the customers and the companies, the drawbacks in terms of data privacy are greater.
