What makes a good "agree/disagree" essay for the Cambridge exams, at a B2 level? Find out in today's episode.

SAMPLE ESSAY TASK

In your English class, you have been talking about wildlife conservation. Now, your English teacher has asked you write an essay.

Write an essay using all the notes, and give reasons for your point of view.

"Not enough is being done to protect endangered animals."

Do you agree?

Write about:

1. which animals are under threat

2. why we need to protect these animals

3... (your own idea)

SAMPLE ESSAY

"WILDLIFE IN NEED OF PROTECTION"

As the statement suggests, there are many species at risk today. This essay will give some examples of endangered animals, argue for their better protection, and explain what action could be taken now.

Arctic animals, such as polar bears, are in danger of extinction due to global warming. Other species, such as the white rhino, are facing extincition because they are hunted.

If we let these beautiful creatures disappear, our world will never be the same. Think of a forest without any birds singing, or an ocean with no whales. Furthermore, when species die out, the whole balance of nature is threatened.

There are already several protection programmes, but these often lack money. It is also necessary for governements to pass additional environmental laws, so that pollution from factories can be controlled.

In conclusion, there is no doubt that more could be done to save endangered species. They are worth saving so that future generations can admire them.
