1. Question

Music has always been and will continue to be a universal language of mankind. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

2. Answer 1 (mine):

It is no doubt that music always plays a crucial role in modern life. A group of people finds that music is the strongest weapon to mostly deal with the current problem because it seems to be a universal language of human beings, and it will continue to be in the future. This statement ignites a great and ongoing debate, and it that true or not? From personal perspective, it is absolutely correct and has its valid ideology. To have an in-depth look on the matter, thus, various factors should be considered and analysed under scrutiny.

The benefits of music are clarified through a wide range of publications throughout the world. In terms of mental health, music has the magical power to heal human’s soul that they clearly realize it, especially in depression or tense situation. The melody, lyrics, or experiences attached to the song can help them to fully find themselves and overcome their obstacles. Furthermore, music can be considered as the perfect bond between soulmates. Many movies such as La La Land, The Greatest Showed Man, or High school musical were created to widely transfer this statement over the world, and inspire the musical love inside everybody. Music, nevertheless, mainly helps people to focus on their current academic study or work. With the support of music, people become better in knowledge observation, multi-task solve with high efficiency.

Dues to the direct and potential benefits brought by music, the continuous of being “an universal language of mankind” will maintain in the near and far future, like a family tradition. Being born in a family which loves music, the child mostly tends to love music as the way their parents do at the same time. Nevertheless, with the development of technology, various brand-new types of music are created to fully serve different music gout of auditories. If they want to immerse themselves in the exciting atmosphere, EDM or Non-stop music should be suitable. In other case, if they want to forget everything and live in blissful ignorance, Bolero or Andie music could be a perfect choice.

In conclusion, the demands of music in human daily life always appear. In most cases, music plays a different but important part. It can be a piece of memory, a source of power, a public inspirer, or a strict mentor who helps you to stay focus and work effectively. I believe that many persons have the same perspective as me because it is the suitable and optimal answer for this circumstance.

2. Answer 2 (my partner):

Music, since the early days of human civilzation, has always been a powerful tools of communication. But, to call it a universal language is something that will be worth looking into with scrutiny.

In order to understand why such idea exist, the definition of the term “language” must be made clear. To put it simple, language is everything that can be used to communicate. The most relatable and traditional way of understanding this definition would be the verbal speaking and writing that we use regularly in our daily life. On the other hand, with a more open-minded and artistic approach, it can safely be assume that music could also complete the task of communication, not to the extent which verbal language covers but it gets the job done in a more interesting and sometimes more beneficial way.

Music is not limited by the geographical barrier that has troubled verbal language since the very first day of human civilizations, since its origin came from the expression of emotions using the beats and sounds that are instinctively felt by our primal ancestors. For example, people in Asia can easily experience the smooth, funky feeling of Jazz or the solid, enthusiastic and noisy Rock’n Roll without actually have to learn English. Piano pieces of Bach or Bethoven are taught, performed and listened with all of its emotinal value intact throughout the world.

Yet, let not conclude that music is the superior channel of communication. Though it can be call an universal language, the word “universal” here should not be mistaken as its superiority, but rather as its popularity and widespreadness. Music can only speak the language of feelings and emotions and as far as we know, only that. There are endlessly more subjects, topics, ideas needed to be transmitted in our daily life and most of that are accomplished using verbal and non-verbal communication and even music would usually incoporate lyrics in order to be more meaningful and straightforward with its content.

All in all, I agree with the statement that music has always been a universal language for mankind, though with a careful viewpoint of what “universal language” means because after all, both music and words can be misinterpreted and misunderstood, which itself is arguably the source of most debatable subject.

What are your targets?

Your essay is 380 words long.

The minimum is 250. You will not lose points for writing more; however, longer essays generally do not get high scores. There are many reasons.

First, the longer the essay, the more chances you have to make errors, and you will lose points for each of those errors.

Second, your writing may be repetitious and wordy. This will cost you points in task completion or coherence and cohesion.

Third, you will likely stray off-topic, and examiners will deduct points if you are not focused on the topic. You will also be tempted to use weak or unsound arguments or even contradict yourself. Develop just two or three argument points with examples.

Fourth, you will take a lot of time writing, and not have time left over to proofread your essay. You will miss the silly mistakes, and that lowers your score.


Fifth, you will not have enough time to spend on Task 1, and get a lower score there.

Aim to write around 270 words for Task 2. Practice writing a lot of essays so you get a feeling for the length.



Music, since the early days of human civilzation, has always been a powerful tools (wrong form) of communication. (This is an excellent opening background sentence. ) But, to call it a universal language requires a definition, first, and then how music has been used as an expression and transmission of ideas. In the end I completely agree that it has all the features of a powerful, universal language. is something that will be worth looking into with scrutiny. (The last sentence in the paragraph must be your thesis statement, which is the main point of the essay. The thesis statement answers the essay prompt. The essay prompt is: To what extent do you agree? You should answer with an adverb of extent.)


In order to understand why such idea (wrong usage - you can write "such an idea exists" or "such ideas exist." ) exist, the definition of the term “language” must be made clear. To put it simple, (wrong form - You can use the adverb "simply" or the adverbial phrase "in simple terms") language is everything that can be used to communicate. The most relatable and traditional way of understanding this definition would be the verbal speaking and writing that we use regularly in our daily life. On the other hand, with a more open-minded and artistic approach, it can safely be assume (wrong form) that music could also complete the task of communication, not to the extent which verbal language covers but it gets the job done in a more interesting and sometimes more beneficial way.

Music is not limited by the geographical barrier that has troubled verbal language since the very first day of human civilizations, (Avoid the repetition of "since.") since its origin came from originating in the expression of emotions using the beats and sounds that are instinctively felt by our primal ancestors. For example, people in Asia can easily understand experience the smooth, funky feeling of Jazz or the solid, enthusiastic and noisy Rock’n Roll without actually have to learn English. Piano pieces of Bach or Bethoven are taught, performed and listened with all of its emotinal value intact throughout the world.

Yet, let not conclude that music is the superior channel of communication. Though it can be call (wrong form) an universal language, the word “universal” here should not be mistaken as its superiority, but rather as its popularity and prevalence. widespreadness. Music can only speak the language of feelings and emotions and as far as we know, only that. There are endlessly more subjects, topics, ideas (missing conjunction) that need needed to be transmitted in our daily life and most of that (wrong word) it is are accomplished using verbal and non-verbal communication. Even music would usually incoporate has lyrics in order to be more meaningful and straightforward with its content.

All in all, I wholeheartedly agree with the statement that music has always been a universal language for mankind to express feelings and emotions. , though with a careful viewpoint of what “universal language” means because after all, both music and words can be misinterpreted and misunderstood, which itself is arguably the source of most debatable subject.


(Do not introduce any new ideas in the conclusion. Just restate your thesis and summarize the main points.)

It is no doubt that music always plays a crucial role in modern life. (That is not the topic. Convince the examiner that you understand the question.) A group of people (There is no group of people mentioned in the topic.) finds that music is the strongest weapon (That is not the topic) to mostly deal with the current problem (What is the current problem? You have not mentioned any.) because it seems to be a universal language of human beings, and it will continue to be in the future. This statement ignites a great and ongoing debate, and it that true or not? (That is exaggerated and untrue. Do not write such hyperbole in IELTS essays. Just rewrite the topic, in a simple and clear manner in your own words. ) From my personal perspective, it is absolutely correct and has its valid ideology. (That makes no sense.) To have an in-depth look on the matter, thus, various factors should be considered and analysed under scrutiny. That has no significant content. Do not tell the examiner "I am going to write about this topic". It says nothing about your ideas or main point. In the first paragraph:

Write a background sentence that restates the topic in your own words.
Answer the essay prompt. (To what extent do you agree or disagree?) Use an adverb of extent.
Give a hint at your argument points to make a transition to your first body paragraph.

Here is an example: 1) Music has always been and will continue to be a universal language of mankind.

No one knows when music first was used by men, but it must have been deep in the past. Music is still used at events to celebrate traditions and express deep feelings when someone dies. All mothers sing lullabies to their babies. This is why I completely agree that it can be described as a universal language, and it will continue as long as there are people on earth.


The benefits of music (The topic is not "benefits of music". You need to make the first argument about why music is a universal language.) are clarified through a wide range of publications throughout the world. Music is a universal language in that it communicates ideas and feelings within every society. Traditional songs have great benefits for the community. In terms of mental health, music has the magical power to heal emotional pain human’s soul that they clearly realize it, especially in depression or tense situation. The melody, lyrics, or experiences attached to an old sentimental the song can help them someone to fully find themselves and overcome their obstacles. Furthermore, music can be considered as the perfect bond between soulmates. Many movies such as La La Land, The Greatest Showed Man, or High school musical were created to widely transfer this a statement of love over the world, and inspire the love of music musical love inside everybody. Music, nevertheless, (wrong transition - nevertheless is a contrast) in addition mainly helps people to focus on their current academic studies or work. With soft music in the background, one can relax opening their mind to new ideas and knowledge. Hard work and exercise also becomes easier with a lively song. With the support of music, people become better in knowledge observation, multi-task solve with high efficiency. (That makes no sense. "knowledge observation" is nonsense.)

Dues to the direct and potential benefits brought by music, the continuous (wrong word. Continuous is an adjective) of being “an universal language of mankind” will maintain (wrong verb form. You need the passive voice) in the near and far future, like a family tradition. A child who is Being born into a family which loves music, the child mostly tends to will love music as the way their parents do at the same time. Nevertheless, with the development of technology, (Do not use this phrase. "Technology" is stone tools, control of fire, writing, agriculture, weaving and thousands of more products of human ingenuity. Without a specific named technology, this phrase is totally useless.) with the development of the phonograph and recorded sound, various brand-new types of music can be captured and replayed are created to fully serve different music gout (Gout is an old degenerative disease of the wealthy.) of auditories. (wrong word. ) If they (Who?) want to immerse themselves in the an exciting atmosphere, EDM or Non-stop music should be suitable. In other case, if they want to forget everything and live in blissful ignorance, Bolero or Andie music could be a perfect choice.

In conclusion, (restate your thesis. Summarize your main points. Do not introduce any new ideas.) , the demands of music in human daily life always appear. In most cases, music plays a different but important part. It can be a piece of memory, a source of power, a public inspirer, or a strict mentor who helps you to stay focus and work effectively. I believe that many persons have the same perspective as me because it is the suitable and optimal answer for this circumstance.
