Task 2 can be broken down and thought about more easily in 5 steps:

1. Question Analysis
You must first understand the question to know exactly what the examiner is looking for. One of the biggest mistakes students make is not answering the question properly. If you do not answer the question fully, you can’t score higher than a Band 5.
In order to do this, you must first identify the question type, then identify the keywords in the question and finally identify the instructions words in order to find out what the examiner wants you to do with the question. We will look at these skills in more detail below.
2. Planning
The students who get the highest marks plan before they write and they often plan for up to 10 minutes. Planning helps you organise your ideas and structure before you write, saving you time and helping you write a clear essay.
3. Introduction
In the essay introduction, you should start by repeating the question. This does NOT mean that you should COPY the question.You should write the question again, but using different words that mean the same thing (synonyms). As soon as you have restated the question, then give your opinion on the subject.This gives the examiner an overview of what is to come in your essay.
4. Main Body Paragraphs
This is where you give the examiner more detail. You do this by stating your main points and supporting these with explanations and relevant examples.
5. Conclusion
To finish off your IELTS task 2 essay, you need to summarise your whole argument as a conclusion.
Essentially, this means that you give your opinion again that you stated in the introduction.
That’s it you’re done!**
