More houses are needed in many countries to cope with increasing populations. Would it be better to build houses in existing towns and cities, or to develop new towns in rural areas?

The population explosion gives engineering cause to think of plans to build more houses. While some may think of constructing houses in towns and cities which already exist, I think settling people in the countryside has more advantages as will now be explained.

The principle reason to support the idea that constructing in rural areas gives better results is that those places are likely less crowded than urban areas and have plenty of space for housing. Most metropolitans, London, for example, already have faced a rise in the number of inhabitants, which makes it very difficult to find proper places to accommodate more people.

In addition to the shortage of place, urban areas are already suffering from some problems such as air pollution rooted mainly in dense population. It is true that the more people live in an area, the more likely they produce pollutions, as they require more vehicles, manufactures and so forth. One may argue that people can avoid air pollution by applying public transportation or taking advantage of hybrid vehicles, but this requires to spend huge money on addressing this issue, while with moving to countrysides people face less air pollution, posing less burden on the sate.

Finally, we can provide residents with modern facilities with less time and burden. As most cities are old enough to put up with new plans to develop, requiring huge amount of money to extend. Sewage disposal, for example, in most of the old urban areas fail to live up even their dwellers ‘ needs, and definitely it will be becoming worse when we tend to welcome more people.

In summary, I believe that housing projects will receive more benefits if they aim to develop new cities or towns in the countrysides.

Hi Simon,
I have a question that if I can use some idiom in writing ielts task 2 or just in speaking? I'm afraid that some idioms are informal/
Can you clarify?

Hi Simon,

I was wondering if you could help explain to me what I need to do to get a 8 in Writing (General). I have got a 8 the first time I sat the exam but I ended up getting a 7.5 in reading and I require 8's across the board.
I sat the exam for the 4th time. Yes, 4th time! And got 9's across the board but 7.5 in Writing.
How do I ensure I get a 8 in writing. I cannot differentiate between getting a 7.5 and 8. Is it all really just up to the marker?
You reckon I would get a different mark if I asked for a re-evaluation?
Also, I doubt this is possible, but is there a way I can re-visit my paper and see my mistakes?

Thank you

I reckon that could be those minor grammar mistakes very little ones will get your score down from 8 to 7.5
