Usually, students have to study a range of different subjects. Some people believe that learning subjects without being interested in them won't be beneficial. Do you agree or disagree with this statement?


These days, many people believe that children should be learnt many kinds of subjects, while others think that students should only study what they are interested in. Although there are two reasons why students should be free to learn what they want, reducing stress and providing a fair education system, I believe that learning many different subjects is more significant.

On the one hand, there are two reasons why people believe that decreasing the number of subjects is beneficial for students. First, when the government change the range of subjects, they may help kids to reduce stress and have more time for relaxing or family. For example, many students in Vietnam must overnight to do their homework because they have to study thirteen subjects during a term. Thus, they do not have enough time to spend with family or take care of themselves. Second, a fair education system may be provided for students. That is because many children are right-brain people who are not interested in math or physics, and the opposite was true for left-brain students. Therefore, they may have a place to study and develop their abilities, such as drawing or singing.

On the other hand, there are several reasons why kids should learn many types of subjects at school. First of all, studying many different subjects may be helpful for children in their life. For instance, kids may learn about what should they do if they are bitten by snakes. Second, most jobs have to link many different fields which children study at school. Thus, they can not follow their dream jobs if they lack knowledge. For example, a doctor has to learn about physics and math.

In conclusion, reducing the range of subjects is believed that it is good for children by many people around the world. In my view, I stand for the opposite, because of being necessary and helpful.

Did you copy the instructions accurately? They are pretty awful English.

We do not learn children, do we?

Also, you need to define and limit what age group you are writing about.

The answer may be different for primary school pupils, secondary school students, and those enrolled in university or vocational training programs. If you neglect to do this, your essay will generally be confusing.

yuuy83 I believe that learning many different subjects is more significant.

Is that a proper answer to the essay prompt?

Do you agree or disagree with this statement?

No, it isn't. In fact, it does not make much sense.

Your thesis statement has to answer the prompt very specifically and clearly.

Obviously, in this task, you have only two choices: agree and disagree. These single words answer the question, but do not make an engaging or appealing thesis statement. You have to expand it a little with your primary reason.

e.g. Here are two thesis statements that could be used to start a good essay.

  • I completely disagree since a broad academic background gives critical thinking skills that will benefit all students when they graduate from high school.
  • I agree, since in my experience, the high school curriculum requires too much memorization that is inapplicable to real life, so most of the material will be forgotten after graduation and never used again.

I believe I have given you enough advice for you to rewrite your essay, getting started on the right foot.

Repost your revision.

This is my rewrite, I hope it is better.


These days, many people believe that students, especially high school students, should be learnt many kinds of subjects while others think that they should only study what they are interested in. I agree because knowledge is not power, but applied knowledge is power since many students are learning many subjects that they will forget and never use in their life.


On the one hand, there are several reasons why high school learners should study many types of subjects at school. First of all, studying many different subjects may be helpful for children in their life. For instance, teenagers may learn about what should they do if they are bitten by snakes or stay away from toxic chemicals. Second, most jobs have to link many different fields which schoolchildren study at school. Thus, they can not follow their dream jobs if they lack knowledge. For example, a doctor has to learn about physics and math.

In conclusion, people think that high school students should learn a great number of subjects because knowledge is the most beneficial weapon for them after graduating from school. In my view, I stand for the opposite, because of reducing stress and providing suitable schools for each student.

You need to study the verb "learn"

Here is the active voice:

I learn English.
I learnt / learned English in high school. (Learned is American English)
Students should learn English in high school.

The passive voice switches the subject and object.

English should be learned / learnt by all high school students. (Learned is American English)

But now you have written something that is nonsense, that there should be a subject called "students" in high school. So you think that the high school subjects are: Maths, English, History, Science and Students.

Is that what you mean?

yuuy83I agree because knowledge is not power, but applied knowledge is power since many students are learning many subjects that they will forget and never use in their life.

That does not make any sense. Is applied knowledge power because students forget what they learn?
I cannot understand this.


I think you might mean this:

I agree because if students are not interested in a subject, they will quickly forget it. It is just a waste of time.

Thank you so much!

By the way, can you grade my first essay? Is it enough to get band 6 or 5.5?? I'm just looking for more motivation.

I do not have the training or the internal guidelines for scoring IELTS essays. I only have the public rubric, which does not give enough detail to accurately score an essay.


If you keep practicing, you will achieve your goal.
