(Model essay) The latest IELTS Task 2 question as seen in Winnipeg, Canada

Many people choose to work or live abroad because of the higher standards of living they can find outside their home country. Do you think this brings more advantages or disadvantages to the people who follow this path?

Often in today’s world, people are attracted to countries that can offer them increased opportunities and higher standards of living. Although this may drain talent within the country being emigrated from, I feel this phenomenon brings with it more advantages than disadvantages to the individuals who choose this lifestyle. This will be proven by looking at the issues of health care and education.

To start, people coming from countries with underdeveloped health care systems may be able to increase their longevity by moving abroad. For example, average life expectancy in Mainland China is roughly a decade lower than that found in neighbouring Japan. Although several factors are responsible for this disparity, the quality of health care must be assumed to play a very key role. Thus, as this example shows, extended life expectancy is a major advantage people may enjoy should they choose to live in places offering them higher standards of living.

Education quality is yet another benefit people who move to areas boasting higher standards of living can reap. While living in the Emirates, for instance, I met many people from Khartoum (located in what is now North Sudan). These people told me that the education they were receiving in Dubai was invaluable to them and greatly increased their chances of landing a comfortable salary and lifestyle. As my experience shows, many advantages come to people who choose to uproot their existence and move to a more developed part of the globe.

Following this look at how higher grade health care and educational resources can improve a person’s quality of life, it has been proven more advantages than disadvantages come to people who choose to live in countries more developed than their home country.

    Hi, It is good to see a recent essay on Easter day. Can not ask anything more than that. Meanwhile, I tried to write in my own structure. May I know area of improvement?

    One doesn’t have to look far, in current circumstances throughout the world, to see that large numbers of people are migrating to developed country to live a healthy and successful life. There is no doubt whatsoever in my mind that considerable numbers of human beings prefer to settle in advanced countries because of it offers ample advantages.

    To begin with, it is abundantly clear that developed nations have strong health care system, well surrounded and supported by solid infrastructure. This brings longevity in life. For example, the average life expectancy in Australia is roughly decade higher than that found in neighbouring countries like Indonesia.

    Perhaps, most importantly, it is immediately apparent that education quality is much more superior as well as advanced. Numbers of reports have proved that migrated students have far better chances of securing well paid job. In my personal experience, I met enormous numbers of individuals from Nepal who are pursuing their masters in Australian universities. These people told me that they are getting invaluable learning and plenty job offers on each passing day.

    The state of affairs relating to this matter in my country, United States of America, is very similar to the way things are in most developed nations throughout the world.

    At the end of day, when all is said and done, I pen down saying that there is no harm in uprooting and planting existence from developing countries to developed countries. Life is short and everyone has a right to live a healthy, financially secured and pleasant life.

    Hi, thanks for this essay, I have a question. As to task response, it it enough to just mention “this may drain talent” for this type of essay which ask whether advantage outweigh disadvantage? I am a bit confused, I think it need to be discussed a little bit the disadvantage to people who choose to live abroad in conclusion part, then it is logical to draw that conclusion, right?
