IELTS Essay Question in Kottayam(12th July, 2012).

Some scientists believe that by studying the behavior of three-year-old children we can understand whether they will grow up to be criminals.  To what extent is crime a product of human nature?  Is it possible to prevent children growing up to be criminals?



This essay question is worded a bit differently from the usual pattern.  Can a you suggest an introduction?

Introduction:
Evidences have continuously proven that criminal behaviour is predominantly the product of unfavourable circumstances rather than the result of genetic characteristics.  If proper measures are adopted, a criminal’s behaviour can be reformed to a great extent.

Notes:
When you write an introduction, make sure that you address all parts of the question and use simple langue. The first part of the question is usually a statement that leads to the second part which actually is the question. Some students make the mistake of concentrating on the first part, ignoring the second part. This means that they lose the focus of the question. There are two questions here and both have to be addressed in the introduction and that is how you respond to the task.

Look at some of the vocabulary used:

continuously: the use of this word would give emphasis to to my point.  For example, some times we say: 'There is a growing(an increasing) tendency among young people to commit crimes.' Here growing is used with the same effect.

predominantly: other words that can be used are, mainly, mostly, in most instances.  This word is used to indicate that in majority of cases 'unfavourable circumstances' is the cause, but in some instances 'human nature' can also be the reason for crime.
