英検1級、準1級のライティングが変わる!(英検協会)

投稿日: カテゴリー: 未分類

Hi. 英検担当のVictoriaよ。

またまた、ビックリな話。英語塾 ABCにとっては、嬉しい話。

英検2級にライティングが導入されたおかげで、準1級と1級にもその余波が。

準1級のライティングは、これまでEメールを書くのがライティングだったんだけど、これからはエッセイを書かないといけないのよ~。ふ・ふ・ふ♪

しかも、語数も増えちゃってるし。だから当然、1級も語数が増えちゃってるの。

じゃあ、準1級と1級のライティングがどのようなものなのか、見てみましょう。

 

ライティングテストの内容
準1級-問題例
  • Write an essay on the given TOPIC.
  • Use TWO of the POINTS below to support your answer.
  • Structure: Introduction, main body, and conclusion
  • suggested length: 120-150 words

 TOPIC

Agree or disagree:

Small, independent shops and businesses can survive in modern society

 

満点解答例

        I agree with the idea that small, independent shops and businesses will be able to survive in modern society, and I have two reasons to support my opinion.

        To begin with, the service at small, independent shops is usually far better than the service at larger businesses and chain stores. Independent shops are usually more closely connected to their communities, and their staff members often know their customers personally and have a good idea of what they are looking for.

        Secondly, many independent shops are responsible for producing traditionally made goods. The skills to make these products have been passed down over generations, and consumers today still appreciate the quality and craftsmanship of the goods that these businesses sell.

        It is for these reasons that I believe people will continue to use small, independent businesses. (135語)


1級-問題例
  • Write an essay on the given TOPIC.
  • Give THREE reasons to support your answer.
  • Structure: Introduction, main body, and conclusion
  • suggested length: 200-240 words

 TOPIC

Should economic development be a higher priority for developing countries than environmental protection?

 

満点解答例

        The economic growth of developing countries must not come at the expense of environment. Pollution, loss of biodiversity, and the collapse of food security all become issues when nations prioritize economic development over environmental protection.

        Air and water pollution from factories, vehicle emissions, and other sources associated with industrialization and economic growth are detrimental to developing nations. The contamination of water bodies, for example, poses a grave threat to the water supply. Developing nations must minimize pollution by developing ways to provide clean energy, limiting CO2 emissions, and regulating waste disposal.

        The destruction of ecosystems for agricultural expansion is another effect of economic growth. In Indonesia, for example, oil palm plantations, which are good for the economy but necessitate extensive deforestation, are increasing at an alarming rate. As habitats of diverse species are destroyed, numerous plants and animals are in danger of being lost forever. Sustainable farming practices and responsible land-use policies are therefore imperative.

        Finally, the prioritization of economic development threatens the food supply. As nations grow more affluent, meat consumption tends to increase. Livestock is fed with crops that cause terrible soil erosion when grown on an industrial scale. This eventually renders the land unsuitable for growing any food at all.

        As developing nations attempt to grow their economies, some degree of environmental damage is inevitable. However, these nations must prioritize environmental protection so that the path to economic development does not have cat as trophiccon sequences. (238語)
