WHAT ARE YOUR OPINIONS?

Topic 1: INTERNET The internet has dramatically altered our lives in the past few decades. Although some of these changes have been negative, the overall effect of this technology has been positive. What are your opinions on this? INTRODUCTION The past 50 years have experienced a considerable development in the availability of the Internet. However/Yet, there remains some certain disagreement as to whether the overall influence of this technology has been positive or negative. While there are valid arguments to the contrary, I personally believe that the benefits of the Internet far outweigh its drawbacks. There are two primary reasons for my perspective.

The Internet has brought significant changes to our lives in recent years. Yet, there remains some disagreement as to whether the overall effect of this technology has been positive or negative. While there are valid arguments to the contrary, I personally believe that the benefits of the Internet far outweigh its drawbacks. These benefits are twofold.

CONCLUSION By way of conclusion, I once again reaffirm my position that the Internet has had positive impact on modern life because of its influence on communication and flow of information.

Topic 2: FAST FOOD Fast food is now universally available in most countries and is becoming increasingly popular. Some fell that it this is a positive trend, while others do not. What are your opinions on this? INTRODUCTION Recent years have experienced a considerable development in the availability of fast food around the world. Yet, there remains some certain disagreement as to whether the overall effect of this tendency has been positive or negative. While there are valid arguments to the contrary, I personally believe that this kind of food is detrimental both to the individuals that consume it as well as to society at large/ (the drawbacks of the fast food far outweigh its benefits). There are two primary reasons for my perspective. _______________________________________________________________________ The past 50 years have seen a dramatic increase in the availability of fast food. Some laud its convenience and relatively low cost; however, in this essay I intend to argue that this kind of food is detrimental both to the individuals that consume it and to society at large. There are two primary reasons for this.

CONCLUSION By way of conclusion, I believe that fast food will continue to become popular as the pace of life increases. Given the health risks associated with this trend, I believe that public education campaigns warning people about the dangers of fast food would be warranted.

Topic 3: INTERNATIONAL TOURISM International tourism is now more common than ever before. Some fell that this is positive trend, while others do not. What are your opinions on this? INTRODUCTION The past 50 years have seen a considerable increase in global tourism. Despite the undeniable economic prosperity it has brought to many host countries, I would argue that the overall effect of international holidaymaking has in fact been negative. Two of the primary drawbacks associated with this trend are as follow.

CONCLUSION In conclusion, the challenges presented by the booming international tourist industrial are numerous and complex. Although they are by no means insurmountable, it is highly unlikely that they will be resolved in the foreseeable future.

DO YOU AGREE OR DISAGREE? Topic 4: IMMIGRATION Nowadays, more people are immigrating to other countries than ever before. In order to become integrated into society in their adopt countries, immigrants should abandon their old ways and adapt to local customs as well as codes of behaviour. Do you agree or disagree? INTRODUCTION These days, it seems that more people are immigrating to other countries than ever before. This raises certain questions about the immigration of newcomers into society. Although there are valid arguments to the contrary, in this paper I will argue that it is responsibility of immigrants to adapt to accepted rules of behaviour in their adopted country, both written or unwritten. The reasons for this are twofold.

CONCLUSION By way of conclusion, I believe that this issue is likely to become even more important in the future as borders between countries become increasingly blurred. It, therefore, demands our further consideration.

Topic 5: JOB AND GENDER Men and women are different in terms of characteristics and abilities. For this reason, some jobs are better done by men and others by women. Do you agree or disagree? INTRODUCTION These days, it seems that more women are entering male occupation than ever before and vice versa. While some still hold to the conservative view that certain jobs are better performed by men and others by women, it is my personal belief that people of either sex are capable of doing any job effectively. The reasons for my position are as follows

CONCLUSION In summary, I once again reaffirm my position that both male and female employees are an asset to any industry and as our stereotypes about men and women are not always appropriate, we must not discourage anyone from choosing an occupation simply because of his/her gender.

Topic 6: Cigarette Smoking Smoking is a major cause of serious disease/illness and death throughout the world today. In the interest of public health, government should ban cigarettes and other tobacco products. Do you agree or disagree? INTRODUCTION There are widely different views on the issue of whether tobacco should be banned or not. Some people would suggest that it is their right to smoke and that prohibiting cigarettes would be a violation of their civil liberties; however, I personally believe that tobacco should indeed be made illegal. There are two principal reasons for this.

CONCLUSION In reality, of course, the widespread prohibition of smoking is unlikely in the near future. However, given the seriousness of the problem that it causes, I believe that this should be the ultimate goal.

Topic 7: ENDANGERED SPECIES Trying to save endangered animal species from extinction is a waste of valuable resources. Do you agree or disagree? INTRODUCTION The issue of whether we should attempt to save endangered species from extinction or not is certainly a contentious one. Despite the arguments of some people that such animals serve no useful purpose and should be allowed to die out just as many others (including the dinosaurs) have in the past, it is my personal belief that they should in fact be preserved. Two of the principal reasons for this are as follows.

CONCLUSION In conclusion, I once again restate my view that saving endangered species is worthwhile. Not only do they help to maintain the balance of natural, but they also have value in and of themselves.

DISCUSS CAUSES, EFFECTS AND/OR SOLUTION Topic 8: Rural Depopulation These days, it seems that an increasing number of people are leaving rural areas to live in the city. Discuss some of the effects of rural depopulation (migration from the country to the city) and suggest some ways in which this trend could be reversed. INTRODUCTION While country towns were once vibrant and growing places, these days many appear to be dying as people move to the city in search of work and excitement. In this essay, I intend to discuss the impact of this problem as well as how more people could be encouraged to live in rural areas.

CONCLUSION In reality, this problem is unlikely to be resolved in the short term. However, it is by no means insurmountable, and I am convinced that more people will choose the country life as city life become less comfortable and more expensive.

Topic 9: Distance within Modern Families With divorce rates and family breakdowns increasing globally, it is generally accepted that families today are not as close as they used to be. Discuss the causes of this problem and offer some possible solution to it.

INTRODUCTION Divorce and family breakdowns were virtually unheard of just 100 years ago. Now, however, almost half of all marriages fail. This phenomenon is symptomatic of the growing distance between family members in modern society. In this essay, I intend to explore the sources of this problem along with some possible solution to it.

CONCLUSION In conclusion, I believe that this problem is clearly a problem of such complexity and no solution is likely in the short term. However, I believe that the measures outlined above would constitute a good first step.

Topic 10: Declining Education Standards Many people believe that educational standards have declined in recent times, particularly in the areas of literacy and numeracy. Discuss the causes of the problem and offer some possible solutions to it.

INTRODUCTION There is a widely perception in many parts of the world today that educational standards are in decline. In the following essay, I aim to identify the sources of this problem as well as some viable solutions to it.

CONCLUSION In reality, of course, this is vast oversimplification of the issue. Solutions such as the reintroduction of corporal punishment would be problematic in themselves. However, I believe that the hard way is sometimes the best way.
