IELTS Essay: Children' leisure activities

Some people believe that children’s leisure activities must be educational, otherwise they are a complete waste of time.
Do you agree or disagree?
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your experience.

Nowadays children spend so much time at school and attend various additional classes and this makes some educational specialists feel pity for them. They suggest giving kids more spare time to play and have fun. Meanwhile, there is an opinion that youngsters should do only those activities that benefit their knowledge and educate them, and I totally agree with this point of view.

Of course, the volume of the information children receive at school and ought to memorize is enormous and they should be given some free time to relax. Playing with others is essential to develop communication skills and this also gives young brains some rest.

Although, we have to admit that in our competitive world the more time a kid devotes to the study process the better life he can achieve. There are ways to make playing with others very educational and parents should encourage their children to play games which make brain work. For example, kids could have a competition combining physical activity and some kind of trivia on geography, like we had in our childhood. Moreover, even computer games can be very intelligent. There are so many electronic entertainments which teach languages, gives information on history, geography, that child addicted to computers could become very smart and educated.

In addition, unattended kid hardly makes proper use of his leisure time. If it happens, children just watch TV or get under peer pressure. They unfortunately do not have skills of analyzing and filtering what is bad or what is good. Education through games instead makes them occupied and in the same time teaches analyzing.

To conclude with, education through fun is not very exhausting for kids but its usefulness can be great. It would be a shame to devote this time to the TV or other entertainment.

Could you,please,evaluate my essay.The same topic.
Today,more than ever before,parents concern about the future personal and professional life of their offsprings.Variety of children clubs began to play important role in our society,because few of us believe that children should spend own time with the books,but others state that youngsters have to grow without any restrictions.
First of all,pre-school educational period,without any doubt,will be very valuable for children in order to constant development and boost essential activities of their brain,such us attention,speed,memory,immediate solving problems,flexibility.Eventually,in long term education period from school years till even PHD education enhancing mental abilities will be considered like treasury.
Second of all,young people who interested in educational spheres tend to create real awareness about own life and the world overall.Moreover,they always have higher grades in classes and very often become winners in different school competitions inside the country as well as abroad.Even every new subject in school program seems to be extremely easy for them.
However,we ought to understand that our personality based not only our thinking abilities.Physical capabilities play vital role in our growth.Last scientist's discoveries prove that one of the fundamental aspect of development of small child is a game.Children in game tend to exceed own personal growth by participating with peers and expressing themselves physically and emotionally.
In conclusion,from my personal view children's spare time should be organised like a mixture of study and free time for connecting friends and I truly believe that such way of spending time will benefited flourishing future of our boys and girls.

Only students comprehension and analytical skills are important. Constant practice and confidence are needed for the IELTS. Review and train harder since the test fee is not that cheap. It is need to give it all.
