Model Answer 1:
Today, majority of people travel in different countries as part of their work, travel or living. But the fact is whether it bring a benefit to society or not? I would like to share my opinion in the following paragraphs.

Firstly, as people start travelling to different places, they communicate with the local people, which make it possible to understand each other and lead a good relationship. This relationship may help to bring a good understanding and bonding among the nations. Moreover, as the number of tourists increases, tourist resorts also increases, revenue collection will be increased, which reduces the burden of government barring all the expenses of the maintenance. The economic level of a country will be in a control. This not only provides financial support to government, as number of accommodation centre increases, need for employee also increase as a result.  The problem for unemployment can be solved, which helps in making a powerful and developed economy.

On the other side, most of the nations have their own tradition and culture. This difference is major in countries where less foreigner tourists come to visit when compared with other countries where a large number of tourists travel and stay each year. This may create a serious issue in some places where the tradition is in the upper side. For example; the dressing style of western country differs from our nation. When they visit to a sacred place such as, temples, mosques or some other pilgrimage places may create some inconvenient situation for the locals. Sometime the situation may become worst, which may result in future conflicts among the nations.

To sum up with my words, despite of the drawbacks in the above paragraph, the international tourism helps in a greater extent in forming a nation and to lead a peaceful, friendly relationship among them and making the planet earth a meaningful one.

Essay Topic: International tourism and international trade are two important aspects for the development of the economy of a country and a country can get numerous benefits from the close relationship it maintains with foreign countries.

To what extend do you agree or disagree?

Model Answer: In this globalized world, trade and tourism among countries are omnipresent. These international relationships are beneficial for both the host and the reservoir countries. Even though there are some drawbacks, this essay supports the view point that a country gets numerous benefits from close relationship it maintains with other countries.

It is often said that, the international relationship that a country maintains sometimes destroys the traditions and customs. For instance, because of western impact most of the youth in India follow western dress code and forget the traditional values. Secondly, brain draining is a common phenomenon and developing countries that are lacking the trained professionals are suffering from this problem even more as most of their talented individuals are being migrated to developed countries . Thirdly, local trades have lost its popularity whereas the followers of branded international products drastically increased. Finally, the international relationship widened the gap between the rich and poor countries. Thus the international trade and tourism have some negative impacts on second and third world countries.

On the other hand, for developing countries tourism is a prominent source of revenue. In addition, international relationship strengthens the understanding among nations and chances for war decline. Moreover, living standard of nations has improved by the demanding job opportunities around the world. Travelling in different countries enlightens the cultural aspects of a nation and reduces the language and cultural barriers nations have. Furthermore international trade paves the way to the local people to purchase branded products from their own local shops. People can travel to other countries to better treatment, to learn more about their culture or to find a new business opportunity. Thus the possibility of international tourism and international trade offers to a country is immense.

In conclusion, international tourism and trade bring the whole world under one umbrella. I hope in imminent future cultural and regional barriers will be diminished and international friendly relationship will be strengthened toward a better world.
