ACADEMIC WRITING


TASK1

The chart shows the number of hours of leisure enjoyed by men and women in a typical week in 1998-9, ac-
cording to gender and employment status.
Among those employed full-time, men on average had fifty hours of leisure, whereas women had approxi-
mately thirty-seven hours. There were no figures given for male part-time workers, but
female part-timers had forty hours of leisure time, only slightly more than women in full-time
employment, perhaps reflecting their work in the home.
In the unemployed and retired categories, leisure time showed an increase for both sexes, as might have
been expected. Here too, men enjoyed more leisure time over eighty hours, compared with seventy hours for
women, perhaps once again reflecting the fact that women spend more time
working in the home than men.
Lastly, housewives enjoyed approximately fifty-four hours of leisure, on average. There were no
figures given for househusbands! Overall, the chart demonstrates that in the categories for which statistics on
male leisure time were available, men enjoyed at least ten hours of extra leisure time.

TASK 2

model answer:

There are some conditions under which a novelist could reasonably expect some
government suport. In general terms, if the writer has already proved that he or she
can write well, and if the stories produced are stimulating and interesting, then I
consider that some financial help might be given.

Language quality is difficult to define, but if the writing shows, for example, good
grammar, a wide vocabulary, and elegance and imagination, then I can see a valid
reason for assisting an author to spend some time free from money problems. Such a
writing needs to be encouraged. the entertainment value of a book would be also a
factor in deciding whether to
provide assistance to an author. Further consideration would include social and
educational values expressed in the author’s work.

However, if the ideas were socially
irresponsible, or if the stories contain unnecessary violence or pornography for its own
sake, then I would not want to see
the author sponsored to write stories which do not benefit society. Other exceptions
are the many writers of good books who
do not require financial help. Books which proved to be extremely popular, such as

the Harry Potter stories, clearly need no subsidy at all because the authors have
become rich through their writing.

Views on what good quality writing means will vary widely, and so if any author is to be
given money for writing, then the decision would have to be made by a committee or
panel of judge. An
individual opinion would certainly cause disagreement among the reading public.


GENERAL WRITTING


TASK1

model answer: Dear Sir,
I wanted to let you know that I am coming to live in (city) and I would like to ask if you
can help me with a few things before I arrive and start my new job.

Do you think you could give me a hand
finding somewhere to live? Ideally I would like to live close to where I am
going to be working, or in the downtown district. If possible I would like to be near some
shops, like a supermarket and a DVD rental place. As I really love sports it would
be great to be near a park too.

I’m not too worried about the place itself. Obviously I will be looking for a flat, rather
than a house, as it is just going to be me and I won’t be able to afford too much. So, a
place with one bedroom is fine, but I would like to have a private bathroom (not shared),
a kitchen and some kind of living room. It doesn’t matter if the kitchen is small, but it
would nice to have one. I would prefer to live somewhere new, so anything in a modern
apartment block would be great.
Thanks for your help
