This is a huge topic!

Even for native speakers who believe in the culture of thinking it takes them a long time to figure out how to approach this topic because it’s so broad.

As we have said in a previous episode, it’s always good to go back to your personal stories when your mind goes blank on the IELTS.

If the questions ask you about both advantages and disadvantages, it’s great if you can link both ideas together and weigh both sides of the idea.

Listen to our examples in the episodes and listen to how we talk about globalization.

Break it down into smaller pieces such as:

  • Shopping
  • Food
  • Religion
  • Language
  • Gender roles

  • Media and movies

Practice thinking about this.

Write down the above topics and compare your culture 10 years ago to your culture today.

We are sure that many of the changes will be due to globalization.

Write down some practice answers.

The key to mastering this topic is to be specific.
