who you would share it with
what you would buy
what else you would do
and explain how you would feel about getting so much money.
It really depends on how much money a “large amount” is. If it’s in the trillions I’d probably buy up most of Europe or maybe North America.
I would be my own little king and have everyone pay homage to me. There would be no more wars because I wouldn’t let them happen. I would be fair to all people. We would commission all of the nuclear scientists to try to discover an economical, plentiful, and non-toxic substitute for gasoline and diesel. There would be less pollution, because if you want to drive a gas powered vehicle you’d have to pay a tine. As far as noise pollution, there would be less, because there would be fewer things to complain about. I would sponsor rock festivals so that everyone could partake of the beauties of music. All my subjects would love me, because they’d know I am trying my best not to be like all of the leaders in the past who gave into their own desires and
lusts; instead I would give the people what they want. I would use all the money that would normally be spent on wars to help poorer nations, improve the lives of war-torn countries, and build a big rollercoaster theme park. When all this is done and with whatever money I have left I would get the best, most expensive guitar on the market and hire a super-skilled guitar player to teach me all he knows. I’d really enjoy that.
IELTS SPEAKING PART 3
Money isn’t really that important to me, but you need money in live and if you don’t have money, then you can’t do anything. But I’m really against the idea of just spending your whole life trying to make a bunch of money so that you can die a rich man. Most of the people who do that: don’t even get to enjoy the money they have, and they’re never content with what they have because they always want more.
It really depends on how much they’re getting. Some kids definitely get way more than they need, and others don’t get enough. There are some families where the parents hardly have enough money to pay their bills and get food; I don’t think these families should feel obliged to give their children money that they don’t have. But if they do have money, then it would be nice to give at least some spending money to their children.
If you give your children only a small amount of money each week then they’ll have to learn to make it last. It might take a while for them to learn, and they might be broke for the first few months, but after a while they’ll realize that money doesn’t grow on trees and will respect its value. Of course there are children who always want everything they see, and if the parents give it to them then the kids won’t value money at all.
4 Do you think it is important to let children earn money skills?
I think that’s a wonderful idea. If all kids knew how to do banking, open a savings account and cash checks, their parents would have a lot more leisure time. And even if the parents still do banking, at least when their kids grow up they won’t be totally helpless. In fact, they’ll have a big jump on the other kids their age.
If you pay someone extra to work overtime then you’re, in a sense, giving them an incentive to work harder. When the work day is over, most people just want to go home and relax. Some people are workaholics and don’t think anything of working until 3 or 4 in the morning and getting at 6 a few hours later to go back to work. But these people are rare. So if you want more people to work later an overtime bonus is a very good idea.
Jobs like designing and repairing computer software, lawyers, doctors and surgeons, building designers. scientists, and Hollywood actors are some better paying jobs. All these jobs require years of study, research, and lots of experience in that field.
People who are multilingual will be highly sought after in the future. As the world is becoming more international, people who speak more than 2 languages fluently will be greatly needed. English is the main international language right now. but there are billions of extremely intellectual individuals who can’t speak or understand English. These people don’t want to get left out of all the fun and games that are happening in the rest of the world, so they need translators who will be able to make them understood by people of different races.
The most important factor is, as most fun loving people know, how much vacation time you get. Not only time off. but paid time off. Another important thing to keep in mind is what kind of work it is. Some work is just boring and nobody likes doing it—except for boring people. But if you really want to excel in your work, pick something that you feel comfortable doing, something that you’re good at. the workplace environment is also very important. Some offices are stuffy and drab, whereas others make you feel fresh and alive.
The primary source of government income is taxes. Taxes are the way that governments support all their projects around the country. Whether they’re building skyscrapers, roads, or schools in impoverished counties, all this funding comes from taxes. Another way to put it is that you’re supporting the government, because you’re the one paying the taxes. Whenever you see government officials on the news doing something or another, you can know that you are actually responsible, since it is you who made it possible for them to do it
You know, that would be very nice. I’ve always wondered what exactly is going on behind those closed doers. Naturally some things just can’t be talked about because they’re state secrets, and some things you probably don’t want to know about, such as how much money was spent on this banquet, or that convention, or how many liters of gasoline their vehicles Consume each month. But I would like to know exactly what they’re spending my money on.

Some people think governments should spend as much money as possible exploring outer space (for example, traveling to the Moon and to other planets). Other people disagree and think governments should spend this money for our basic needs on Earth. Which of these two opinions do you agree with? Use specific reasons and details to support your answer.
please rate my essay. thanks a lot.
Nowadyas it becomes a heatedly debated topic wether governments should spend money on space exploration or should spend it on basic needs on earth. I believe that it is crucial for governments to spend money on basic needs on earth. It helps to save many children's lives who are dying of starvation and poorness, it helps to solve air pollution, and it helps to improve medical science.
First of all, when we see the photographs of starving children, it is very difficult to say that we should spend billions of dollars on space exploration. Governments should spend money to save these children's lives. They can build a lot of shelters and feed a lot of hungry children. If government spend this money, we willnot hear from the radio or televiosion the news about the death of children because of poorness and starvation.
In addition, air pollution is the big problem in large cities and in industrial areas.Many studies have shown links between pollution and health. It causes serious health problems such as asthma, lung and heart disease. The widespread use of private cars is the main reason of air pollution. Govenments with spending money can improve roads and public transportation. If we have sufficient public transportation, people will use them instead of private cars, and it means less pollution. Also, Governments can spend money to plant trees and increase green spaces that help to reduce air pollution.
Furthermore, Improvement of medical science needs money. Some of people in the world suffer from incurable disease such as cancer.With spending more money, scientists can improve their reaserch and equipment of medical. It is a tragedy that there are human beings suffering from incurable disease on earth.
In conclusion, when we have a lot of problems in the world around us, it doesn't make sense to spend money on space exploration. If governments solve the basic needs on earth, they can spend money for science exploration.
you have argued the good points. I rate it as 5. It is better to make the introduction more elegant and make your examples more vivid. Anyway, it is good essay.
In the past year, Instagram has become a real force to be reckoned with in the marketing world.
Since January, it has gained 100 million monthly active users, with the total currently sitting at a hefty 400 million monthly and 75 million daily users.
That’s pretty astonishing. So it’s no surprise that brands are now dedicating a substantial percentage of their social media marketing budget to this image heavy channel.
So what does that mean for you?
Well, now is the perfect time to cash in on its growing popularity.
If you’re prepared to put in the time and commitment, you can easily find yourself in a position where you can start making serious money from your Instagram account.
Still not sure what to do?
No sweat! I’ll guide you through the main ways to cultivate an income through Instagram and make a name for yourself in all the right places.
Ready? Then let’s begin.
What You Need To Do First: Attract followers
First thing’s first: what’s your following like? You should know from the start that most brands will expect a strong and loyal following in order to build a working partnership. If you’re lacking in this department, there are a few simple ways you can increase your amount of followers whilst building a professional look for your account.
Okay, so you’ve boosted your follower count – sweet! Now it’s time to start making money.How-TO: Make Money on Instagram 1. Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is basically when you promote a product and get paid per sale. You’ll often see bloggers doing this with sidebar banners promoting their partners (affiliates), or even through specific product inspired posts. Well, it’s not much different with Instagram.
With Instagram, you post attractive images highlighting their products and drive sales through your affiliate URL (this should be provided by your affiliate).
There are quite a few companies you can work with here. Here are some:
Here's an example, see how Kristyn from GlamourZine promote those over the knee boots?
You can put your affiliate URL on your captions or on your bio. You can either use bitly.com to shorten and customize your affiliate link OR you can hook up your blog and Instagram profile so that when people purchase through your link, you get a sale.
It really couldn’t be easier. This type of marketing is particularly popular with clothing on Instagram, as you can post your “OOTD” (outfit of the day) with the affiliate link sending followers to your full outfit details.
For those involved in the travel industry (or simply those that love to travel – ahem, all of us!), you could try to set up and use affiliate marketing when taking part in reviews for hotels and venues. Simply direct followers to book through your link!
It’s also great for beauty bloggers, as you can invite people to “shop the look.” These methods are subtler and, as such, more effective than a direct sales type pitch.2. Create Sponsored Posts (Find Sponsors!)
Instagram users with engaged followings can earn extra money by creating original sponsored content for brands.
In a nutshell, a piece of sponsored content on Instagram is a photo or video that highlights a product or a brand.
These posts are accompanied by captions that may include branded hashtags, @mentions, or links.
Brands don’t typically require a formal brand ambassadorship for creators of sponsored content, but it’s common to for them to tap certain influencers for content time and time again.
However, it’s important that any brands or products you promote are a good fit for your own personal image on Instagram.
The idea is to show off brands that you can personally get behind, and to show your followers how that brand fits into your lifestyle.
An obvious one, surely? Why not use Instagram for it sole purpose… to showcase your photography?
If you’re a professional (or amateur but keen!) photographer, Instagram is a great way to advertise and sell your shots to either individuals or agencies. Add a watermark to your snaps and use the captions to list all selling details in a concise manner.
As always, make sure that you have an active presence so that the right type of accounts are following you. Use appropriate hashtags to pull people towards your shots and get a conversation going with influential photography agencies.
There are also a few sites that you can use to actually put your Instagram photos for sale, including:4. Promote your business, products or services
If you run your own business, then Instagram needs to hold an integral place in your marketing matrix.
If you sell products, use it to post beautiful shots that can’t be found on your website. Here are some creative ways to promote your products or services:
The brilliant thing about using Instagram to promote your business is you can get mega creative with it. Think outside of the box and really use it to your full advantage. You’re sure to see the sales flying in.5. Sell your Instagram account
Had enough of Instagram? Ready to move on?
Well, you’ll be happy to know that all your hard work hasn’t gone to waste. You can actually sell your Instagram account if (for whatever reason) you can no longer manage it.
There’s a few site that support you with this, two of the best being:Bonus Tip: Take a course to speed up your strategy
