Sample Answer

No, I don’t think that it’s necessary for all films to be educational. In fact, I think people go to the cinema because they simply want to be entertained, not always educated. Watching a film on the big screen is a form of escapism and so people want adventure, romance or fantasy. As far as I’m concerned, if I’m looking to be educated I would choose to read a book or watch a documentary, although actually I do also enjoy historical films which teach me something about the past.

I took the IELTS Speaking and Writing course. I improved my speaking score from 6.0 to 7.0 through mock speaking tests for one month. Without iPass, I would not have taken my ideal score of 7.5 overall.
