Owing to the problem of getting increased of being overweight has much focused the healthcare system for today. In some people they think more physical education lesson in the school much implement it. I completely agree it is the best method for improving the health by getting active in school activities.
Firstly, it is not easy to deal with this matter. People need discipline to their self to achieve the goal by losing weight.In other words, it is difficult to solve the problem if they letting to progress.

Some people consider price as the most important thing to consider when buying a product (such as a cellphone) or a service (e.g medical treatment) do you agree or disagree?
In today’s world, due to the rising inflation and lower incomes than ever before, cost of goods is the most important factor people usually consider when going shopping or requesting services. While I accept that the price of products is effective in selecting them, I do not agree to attach a great importance to services’ price.
On the one hand, I believe that it is reasonable to take the price of products into account as a determining variable for purchase. Consumer goods such as clothes or electrical devices just to name a few, are bought regularly by people. Therefore, it will be not economical if they spend a large amount of money to buy them each time. For instance, the price of cellphone, as one of the most common products sold daily, should be reasonable enough; neither so cheap that leads to poor quality, nor prohibitively expensive that is not value for money. Having considered the price of goods when buying, people are able to manage their cost of living properly and avoid extravagance, resulting in saving up money gradually, to spend at more valuable situations like investment.
On the other hand, price cannot be considered as the most significant factor to choose a service. In spite of consumer goods, receiving services is typically once in a while, meaning that people do not need to spend money for them regularly. Thus, in my opinion, in such situations, the quality of presented services is much more important than their cost. In particular, when it comes to services like medical treatment, which is directly associated with individual’s health, the quality has a vital role to play. In fact, under no condition should people sacrifice their safety for spending less money.
In conclusion, although it is often acceptable to consider the price of goods to buy them, in my view, this is not true to put cost of services ahead of their quality.

It has been said, “Not everything that is learned is contained in books.” Compare and contrast the knowledge gained from experience with knowledge gained from books. In your opinion, which source is more important? Why?
As it is rightly said “knowledge is divine” and it is one of the most important factor in achieving your goals and ambitions. No matter which way you gain knowledge either through books or experience, learning from both is essential. Having said that, I feel learning from experience is more important than from books.
It is not necessary that one has to experience everything and also sometimes experiencing something could also prove to be time taking and tedious job. For example, if you want to gain knowledge about tallest Himalayan mountain and climate surrounding it, you don’t have to travel all the way to Himalayas for that, you can get the required information just by reading any book on Himalaya mountains.
As the saying goes “Experience is the best teacher”, it is apparent that books are often written by professors, experts or authorities in varies fields, Therefore, knowledge acquired from them is greatly accepted, but by just gaining it from books you cannot attain expertise in any subject or profession, However theoretical knowledge will act as foundation using which you can become an expert with proper experience over a period of time. To cite an example, just passed out doctor has to go through mandatory internship, irrespective of how brilliant a doctor might be academically,he cannot be expected to do surgeries straight away after completing the studies, he has to work under the guidance of experienced doctor as a trainee doctor for sometime, after gaining enough exposure over a period of time under able guidance, he will be able to do surgery as well. Here we can say that doctor’s cannot acquire the expertise or specialization without proper real time experience.
To conclude, gaining knowledge from any source either form books or experience is vital, however knowledge gained from experience is more important.

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? A zoo has no useful purpose. Use specific reasons and examples to explain your answer.
In modern world there are number of zoos all over the world. Some people believe that zoo is very useful for both animals. However some others thought that zoo are harmful and not a useful one. In my point of view, zoo has so many advantage rather than disadvantage. So I believe that zoo has more useful purposes.
From one side, the safety measure in zoo is one of the main concerns. There is lack of basic facilities in zoo to take care of animals in emergency situation. The recent survey shows that nearly 30% of zoo does not have basic facilities to help animals. The living habit of animals in zoo is also a major problem. Some animals in zoo do not know how to hunting. The survey also shows that behaviors of animals in forest are very different from the animals that are lived in zoo.
From the other side, zoo is one of the favorite tourist spot for numerous people. Every day there is an increase in number of tourist person. There is very good entertainment for whole family. Children are eager to see the animals and they can learn the behavior of numerous animals. Zoos are also used for educational purposes. It is possible for them to learn the scientific names of animals. Numbers of research are undergone in zoo to study the beading and other aspect of animals.
Furthermore, it is also a safe guard for animals from natural disaster. Nowadays due to global warming huge amount of forest and animals are destroyed. For instance, the number of polar beer is reduced from the past decade. There is large amount of polar bears are died for each year. This leads to total destruction of whole species. Alternatively, zoo tries to improve their living condition and protect the animal species from destruction.
From the above points, zoo is very essential for both people and animals. The one main concern is that the zoo should follow the international safety norms to protect the animals.

Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
The bar chart gives information about how many people visited New York City through three major airports, over a six-year period between 1995 and 2000.
Overall, it can be seen that over the period, there was a fluctuant trend in the number of passengers who travelled via John F. Kennedy airport, while the other two airports saw an upward trend. Another interesting point is that LaGuardia airport was the most popular at the end.
Looking at the detail, the number of travellers at John F. Kennedy airport started at 26m in 1995, and then increased remarkably to reach the highest point of 47m in 1997. In 1999, the figure dipped to 32m. At the last year, there was a slight growth to 44m. On the other hand, LaGuardia began at 35m in 1995, after that it rose remarkably for the next three years, at 46m. In 2000, LaGuardia hit the peak point at 68m travellers.
However, if we look at Newark airport, it started at the lowest point of 16m passengers in the first year. After this point, the trend increased significantly to 42m in 1998. In the last two years it remained stable at 42m travellers.

Many high level positions in companies are filled by men even though the workforce in many developed countries is more than 50 percent females. Companies should be required to allocate a certain percentage of these positions to women.
Nowadays education and experience became more valuable. Many international trainings are held to develop one’s skills. In modern world everyone is equal and have equal chances to study in top universities become more realized and productive, thus research showed despite the fact, that the workforce in developed countries is more than 50 percent female, most of high level positions are filled by men.
The first aspect to consider, people who held high level positions in companies have appropriate knowledge and experience, these people are very skilful and independent. It is not to get high level position when it comes to requirements. Likewise, in many cases jobs are denied based on sex. Research showed, that more than 80 percent of top positions were denied to women. It proves discrimination based on gender.
Another key point to mention is, that companies prefer skilful and devoted staff member over the member that is chosen by gender. However, when opposite genders have same possibilities and experience, companies prefer to chose applicant that is men. Employers sometimes believe,that men are stronger and can multi task while being under stress.
In my opinion, it is more advantageous not to consider gender and make decisions only based on applicant’s possibilities. I feel this way for the reasons which I explained in the essay. I will once more say, if person is open minded, is amazingly experienced, has high level of education it does not matter if applicant is woman or man. The decision should be made according to his or her potential. In light of evidence we should conclude, that high level positions are filled by men. Its cause is, that they have pertinent education.

As the result of tourism and the increasing number of people travelling, there is an growing demand for more flights. What problem does this have on the environment? What measures could be taken to solve the problems?
Owing to the rise in number of travelers and tourists all over the world, more airplanes are providing service to meet the demand. This brings environmental problems like air pollution as well as over-exploitation of natural resources. There are a number of solutions which should be implemented to deal with the negative consequences.
Firstly, the air quality will seriously be affected due to the pollutants emitted when the airplanes are flying. For instance, carbon dioxide will be released when the fuel oil is burnt to produce energy, which the amount given out is much higher than other transportations. Secondly, more natural resources will be extracted, which, when too much are taken away to provide crude oil for fuels, will result in resources becoming unsustainable. Obviously, this brings disadvantages to the environment.
There are two effective key to the problem brought by the increase in number of flights. One way to tackle this is to tax short-distance travelers heavier as the gas emission charge. By doing this, the number of people travelling around by flight can be reduced, and people may be encouraged to choose other alternatives with lower emissions. Another method of dealing with the rise in number of flights is to ensure most planes are fully seated, since this can boost the energy efficacy – to provide service to most number of passengers using the same amount of energy. This solution would hopefully maximize the efficiency of an airplane.
In conclusion, adjusting the taxation to a higher level and ensuring a well seating arrangement are effective in coping with this issue. If government implemented these measures, the environmental problems resulted would soon be solved.

Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
The two tables contain sales data for Fairtrade tea and pineapples in 2010 and 2015, in five nations of Europe.
The first table shows low-level tea sales increasing in all five countries, albeit to widely varying degrees. In two places sales increased by the same small amount: 2.8-3 million euros in Germany, and 1.8-2 million in Norway. The increment was slightly larger in Netherlands, from 2-2.7 million euros. Meanwhile, in Austria sales doubled from 4-8 million euros. Finally, in France there was an enormous increase, from 2.5-21 million euros.
In the second table, it is Austria which stands out as buying far more Fairtrade pineapples than the other four countries. The sales figures for Austria jumped from 16-48 million euros across these five years, while in France and Netherlands sales only grew from 2-6.5 and from 1.6-5 million euros respectively. Norway and Germany showed a different pattern, with falls in pineapple sales from 2.8-2 and 3-1.9 million euros.
Comparing the two tables, it is clear that in 2010 Fairtrade tea sales ranged from 1.8-4 million euros in these five countries, while pineapple sales also mostly clustered between 1.6 and 3 million euros, with Austria the outlier at a huge 16 million euros. By 2015, sales figures for both products had risen across the board, except for Norway and Germany which recorded drops in pineapple sales.

In cities and towns all over the world, the high volume of traffic is a problem. What are the causes of this and what actions can be taken to solve this problem?Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.
It is a fact that traffic congestion has become a serious problem for many cities and towns. More and more people get stressed with this situation, as they have to spend hours after hours in the street and lose their productivity and valuable time. The following essay will discuss the cause of the issue and some of the solutions that can be taken into account.
For a number of reasons, traffic has become the main problem of many cities and towns all over the world. Firstly, as the population growth in many metropolis cities such as in Shanghai, New York, Dhaka and Bangkok has increased rapidly in the past recent years, it means that there are more cars in the city. Secondly, in some cities, such as in Jakarta or Manila, public transportation facilities are poorly managed therefore the people choose to drive their own vehicles. Lastly, in many countries such as Indonesia or China, the economic development is not widely spread, and a result a lot of people from rural areas move to cities which would create traffic related problems. The number of commuters in many cities has increased dramatically but in proportion, the total number of roads remained almost same as it was in the past. Many people are buying private cars and it is not unusual that many families own more than one car. These two reasons with the poor traffic management system in many cities cause unmanageable traffic jam nowadays.
However, there are several things that the government could do to reduce the problem. The state government should provide decent, safe and clean public transportation facilities, therefore more people would use public transports, instead of driving their own private vehicles. And then the government should develop new industrial and commercial areas outside of the city. It is hoped that some people would move to these new areas, and would reduce the density problem. The government could provide some bicycle lane, as it brings a lot of benefit for the people and the city itself. Bicycles as the primary means of communication could reduce traffic. It is also safer for the environment and has positive effects on the rider’s health. The roads and highways should be expanded and new roads should be introduced. Severe punishment should be imposed for violating traffic rules and restriction should be implemented in private car ownership. Finally, improved traffic system should be introduced and unfit cars and vehicles should be removed from the streets.
In conclusion, cities and towns all over the world are facing serious traffic problem these days. It is mainly due to of the population growth, density and poor public transportation facility. But there are several things that the government could do to address the problem, such as improving the public transports, developing new areas and persuade its resident in using bicycles.

Children who start reading reading earlier in life, perform better later on in their school studies.How important are the early reading skills in a child’s academic performance? What other pre school factors influence a child’s later academic achievements?
Reading is one of the most fundamental elements of learning. It is believed that, habit of reading is beneficial for a child’s academic performance. This essay will discuss the significance and the role of reading and certain pre school extra curricular activities that boost students academically.
Reading is the first step in the process of learning. Children, habitual of reading books, fairy tales, story magazines usually find it easier to understand and overcome the obstacles and glitches in school courses. Thereby, enhancing their efficiency in class, compared to non readers. Furthermore, children are allergic to school books and courses, hence, they require constant supervision during their study hours. Reading develops interest in books and children find it appealing to study variety. Thus, requiring no supervision and children develop a sense of responsibility.
Whilst reading is of the essence, there are other activities and factors that determine a child’s personality and academic standards. Firstly, toddler pre schooling, some consider it as a wastage of time and prefer admissions in schools. Researches have shown that children attending pre school sessions turn out more confident and competitive. Toddler schools provide an environment where children can overcome their social fears. Such children are more focused and confident in comparison to those, whose initial experience is school. Moreover, family relations are of grave importance. Children with less exposure to family problems tend to perform to their maximum academically , on the contrary, those with family issues show higher tendency of deviating from the actual track.
To conclude, variable factors define academic caliber of a growing child. However with parental awareness and guidance he/she can be put on a track before even the start of academic career.

The graph and table below give information about water use worldwide and water consumption in two different countries.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
|Country||Population||Irrigated land||Water consumption per person|
|Brazil||176 million||26,500 km²||359 m³|
|5.2 million||100 km²||8 m³|
The graph shows how the amount of water used worldwide changed between 1900 and 2000 and water consumptions of two countries compared to their population.
Throughout the century, the largest quantity of water was used for agricultural Purposes, and this increased dramatically from about 500 km³ to around 3,000 km³ in the year 2000. Water used in the industrial and domestic sectors also increased, but consumption was minimal until mid-century. From 1950 onwards, industrial use grew steadily to just over 1,000 km³, while domestic use rose more slowly to only 300 km³, both far below the levels of consumption by agriculture.
The table illustrates the differences in agriculture consumption in some areas of the world by contrasting the amount of irrigated land in Brazil (26,500 km³) with that in the D.R.C. (100 km²). This means that a huge amount of water is used in agriculture in Brazil, and this is reflected in the figures for water consumption per person: 359 m³ compared with only 8 m³ in the Congo. With a population of 176 million, the figures for Brazil indicate how high agriculture water consumption can be in some countries.

Some think the best way to motivate and encourage people to work hard is to pay them based on how much they produce and sell. Do you agree or disagree? Include relevant examples from your own experience.
It is considered by some that the best approach to entice person to be hard worker is to make salary equals to the work efficiency. From my perspective, I completely agree with this proposition and in this case profit of employer will increase .
Firstly, usually the majority of people work to earn money to satisfy their needs , some have family, relatives, hence they have responsibilities, and so they strive to ensure an excellent well-beings for them. Compared to person life in the ancient world, people who live in the modern world have a great financial dependence. By earning money, people ensure confident lives to themselves . Therefore, people are not indifferent how many money they earn, if their salaries are not enough for satisfying necessities, they would think up new methods, invent new approach to acquire more money . For instance, as is known, higher educational person has more opportunities to get a high-paying jobs and nowadays, entrance exams in any university have a great competition , it is show that salary has a great meaning for everyone . As a result, stimulating people by more higher salaries is the remarkable approach forcing them to work more productive.
Secondly, it is worth to notice that offered suggestion cater to an employers, why are employers obligated to pay salaries which exceeds their profits? certainly, every employer aims to gain more profits, given that every employee should not earn more money than the organization derive a profit by employee’s activity . If this rule is not implemented, the organization would not be profitable. As a result, a employee’s salary have not to be higher than the income which brings this employee.
In conclusion, a salary motivates the person to work more harder because the modern world imposes dependance from different factors surrounding person. In addition, a employer should care about profitability of the organization, so a salary of worker should not exceed this income. As a result, an employer is able to stimulate their staff by salaries.

Countries are becoming more and more similar because people are able to buy the same products anywhere in the world. Is it a positive or negative development?
It is true that the globalization has made the world a global village and the countries are lot more similar than ever before. These days, people can have the same items from any part of the world, use same technologies, construct similar buildings, buy costumes of international brands and develop infrastructure which are built and designed by international companies. A number of factors have led to this situation, and, this trend, in my opinion, is greatly desirable due to various reasons.
To start with, people can purchase the most international branded items from their home country as almost all global products are available in a country that has allowed free international trades. This situation creates a tough competitive environment in the market and companies try to introduce new inventions to attract more people. So people get better choices of products with higher quality as well as in affordable price. For example, Toyota, a well known car company of Japan has a lot of outlets in India, which is much more helpful for Indians to buy these branded cars without wasting travel expense to Japan. The branded costumes, cars, and other items makes people and streets look similar and I think this declines the discrimination in the world.
Second, global companies nowadays design and build many infrastructures and those are similar in looking. Apart from that, popularity of Hollywood movies and Western celebrities inspire people all over the world to follow a similar fashion trend. This also contributes to the declining of differences among nations. This is helpful for people visiting and staying in a different county. They do not feel much difference in their experience in living in a totally different county.
Again, this trend helps to foster the migration of individuals to various places in the world. Besides, this also reduces the adjustment difficulties people usually face when living in a new place. For instance, Chinese people can consume their traditional dishes, even though they live in India, England, the USA or Australia.
In contrast, the globalization, which makes the world look like a global village, often causes the loss of cultures and diversity of many countries. But considering the advantages it brings is we have no other way than to accept this modern phenomenon. This may negatively affect the local business owing to the larger influence and availability of branded items among common people. However, in the long run the local products get higher quality and can also spread its business opportunity globally.
To conclude, globalization and similar way to life in different countries have made life far luxurious and more comfortable than in the past, despite some problems. So I hope this phenomenon is likely to continue with more acceptances among people.

Some people believe that professional worker such as doctors and teachers should be paid more than sports and entertainment personalities. To what extent do you agree or disagree? Give your opinion and relevant examples.
The great Mahatma Gandhi says,” No job is smaller in this world”. However, In the real life, the income and wages are considered as one of the factors that categorized numerous professions practiced in the society. Many intellectuals believe that the professional profiles like doctors and teachers should be paid higher than the celebrities, who belong to the entertainment industry. My inclination discord with the statement supporting the belief of justified remuneration based on the complexity of work and nature of income involved with the industry.
Universally, professional jobs are considered to be highly secured jobs in the market, and which is why most of the parents guide their kids to adopt those professions for their bright future. To illustrate, doctors and teachers get regular income during their working tenure as well as in their retirement period in a form of pension whereas celebrities don’t get any such social securities.Moreover, the salaries those are drawn by professionals remain steadily increasing in nature. There would be hardly any fall of income registered for these type of profession. For instance, Even in the time of inflation, people never stop to hire services of teachers and doctors. Whilst people will hold control in their recreational activities which in turn affect the income of people associated with the entertainment industry.
On the other hand, the income of athletes and actors solely depends on their performance and consistency. So, their source of income always remains fluctuating rather constant, unlike other sophisticated professions. For example, Mike Tyson was the great boxing world champion but his one defeat dug his grave and alienated him. Lastly, The public expectations to these performers always keep them on their toe to deliver a pure form of innovation in their show ever. Hence, to gain it they put lots of efforts in fine-tuning of their skills. To examplify, Priyanka Chopra, a great leading Bollywood actress, who has performed a role of Mary Kom in her biopic, has taken an extensive physical training to look alike a boxer.
To conclude, every profession has its own important role to play in the society. However, the complexity of the tasks and uncertainty of income should be considered before going judgemental about the compensation of any profession.

Some people think that exercise is the key to health while others feel that having a balanced diet is more important. Discuss both sides and give your opinion.
Exercise and balanced diet are significant to stay physically healthy and mentally fit. Some people think that exercise is the key to health while others feel that having a balanced diet is more important. This essay will discuss both sides in detail and thus lead to a plausible conclusion.
To commence with, today people don’t do much physical activity and have become more passive, then exercise comes as saviour for them to have a healthy lifestyle. While doing exercise one has to move their body parts, which makes the body more flexible, fresh and rejuvenated all the time. Exercise also helps people to improve their productivity because it allows them to release the stress and become more active. For example, while doing cardio body cleanses the toxin through sweat and improves the blood circulation in the brain, which activate the nerves and help people to stay active, healthy and happy.
On the other hand, the old saying “you are what you eat” is true to stay fit, healthy and balanced diet is equally imperative with exercise. As unhealthy diet and junk food people can have many diseases such as obesity, weak eyesight and stress. People should seriously consider having balanced diet, which includes green vegetables and fresh fruits to provide all essential nutrients and vitamins to the body to function well. For instance, a new study shows that balanced and healthy diet reduced the risk of many deadly diseases. Therefore, a healthy and balanced diet is equally important to maintain fitness.

Some people think that government is wasting money on the arts and that this money could be spent elsewhere. To what extent do you agree with this view?
It is believed that spending money on arts is not very useful and that it should be directed elsewhere. I completely disagree with this and feel that arts are worth every penny that is spent on them.
First of all, arts are considered a national interest. In some countries, arts have significant importance and government establishes and maintains organizations that preserve arts. For example, Canada, USA, UK, Australia have art museums all over the country that exhibit ancient arts. People who are interested can visit the museums free of cost. The cost of maintenance is undertaken by the government. Moreover, this increases the level of interest among the people. Thus, the government puts an inconsiderable amount of effort to preserve the arts in the form of museums, craft exhibitions, etcetera.
Secondly, arts are considered to be a great form of entertainment by several people in the country. For instance, movies, exhibitions, crafts are derived from arts. Movies are considered very lucrative and there is a film industry for every language. Like, Hollywood is for English, Tollywood is for Telugu, Bollywood for Hindi. Exhibitions and crafts display several creations like paintings, clay buildings, paper arts, and glass paintings.
Encouragement for arts from government improves the livelihood of thousands of people who base their career on arts. This proves beneficial both to people who work on arts and others who enjoy arts.
To conclude, since arts play an important role in the lives of people, it is very important for the government to make sure that arts are financed properly in a variety of forms like museums, exhibitions, documentary films, craft expos, and so on.

Overpopulation in many major urban centres around the world is a major problem. What are the causes of this? How can this problem be solved?
The population explosion in bigger cities in different parts of the world is a pressing issue. There appear to be three major causes of this, and several possible solutions, as we will explain here.
Firstly, there is an increasing rate of migration from rural, backwater areas to bigger cities, for better opportunities. Due to lack of employment opportunities and amenities in countrysides, people are compelled to migrate to urban centres. Secondly, there are few colleges, universities or educational institutions in villages, meaning people have to shift to cities that offer such facilities. Finally, health facilities, better job prospects, and developed infrastructure allures people to settle in urban centres.
Unfortunately, the rapidly growing population in major cities around the world has created various problems, which need to be addressed. To deter the migration from countrysides to cities, better infrastructures and facilities should be for village dwellers. Improving hospitals, educational institutions and job opportunities in rural areas by establishing modern hospitals, universities, and companies can ameliorate overcrowding in urbanised areas. Added to that, people should be made aware of health benefits of living country-life. Furthermore, helping farmers to increase their agricultural productivity by providing improved seeds, irrigation facilities, and helping their product to sell in the market to earn the maximum profit will increase their income level. This will aid them to come out of poverty, and enjoy a quality life.
In conclusion, the unmanaged booming population in urban areas is creating huge pollution and problems to city dwellers. To resolve this problem private sectors and the government should coordinate to open up new companies in villages, to provide employment, and develop infrastructures to improve the livelihood of the rural population.

Without capital punishment (the death penalty) our lives are less secure and crimes of violence increase. Capital punishment is essential to control violence in society. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Death penalty is one of the oldest punishments in mankind history, from thousands years ago humans applied death penalty in order to enhance their peace and security, but after passing years of years and becoming civilized is it still necessary to use capital punishment to reduce the crime of violence?
There are different ideas about this issue, some people believe that capital punishment is the best way to stop criminals to committing crimes such as murder, they say when there is death penalty fewer criminals would dare to commit crimes. Therefore, the existential philosophy of capital punishment is to reduce crime by spreading fear among criminals about the consequence of their action. In other hand, some other people believe that capital punishment itself promote more violence in society, therefore for reducing violence they offer another idea. They believe to cope with this issue first we have to deal with its factors and backgrounds, it means we need to find out what are the factors that makes a person to commit such a crimes and after that eliminate those factors as much as we can, in this way we can avoid situations that a person could commit a crime. Moreover, we can replace capital punishment with life imprisonment.
However, for both ideas many investigations have been conducted, in case of capital punishment, researches indicates on the contrary, in those countries that have implemented capital punishment, crime rate has not reduced, instead for those countries that have abolished capital punishment, they faced crime rate reduction.
In conclusion, I personally believe it is different from society to society, yet I think in general capital punishment is not essential to control crime and violence in community. In fact, I believe replacing death penalty with life imprisonment is a better idea.

Every year several languages die out. Some people think that it is not important because life will be easier if there are fewer languages in the world.
To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?
It is argued that the annual extinction of many languages is not a problem because having just a few languages leads to a more convenient life. It is disagreed that the convenience of using just a few key languages makes the dying out of less spoken dialects acceptable. This essay will first discuss the importance of language to culture and secondly the fact that learning a few common languages is unrealistic, followed by a reasoned conclusion.
A language is not just a group of spoken words but the key to someone’s culture. Language has evolved over thousands of years to reflect what it means to be from a particular place. For example, the Irish language has one of the widest vocabularies in the world and reflects their tradition of storytelling. Despite this, English has become the first language of the Irish, as many feel it makes it easier to communicate with the world.
By speaking just a couple of languages, such as English and Chinese, you alienate billions of people throughout the world. English may be common, but it is not the ‘lingua franca’ many people think it is and it would take generations for everyone to learn it. Countries like Korea and Vietnam have been trying to adopt English as a second language for a long time, but most of their people still can’t fully grasp it. However, English has been the language of business for a long time and it should be encouraged to help a country become more economically competitive.
To conclude, commonly spoken languages may make life more straightforward, but this should not be at the expense of less prevalent languages, in order to avoid the erosion of culture and the alienation of many countries.

Some people think that the best way to reduce crime is to give longer prison sentences. Others, however, believe there are better alternative ways of reducing crime.
Discuss both views and give your opinion
Nowadays, crime is serious and growing problem in our country. Some people think every criminal deserve strict punishment because they need to pay for what they did.The other people thinks they should in better way as not all criminal are bad. I will discuss on both aspects .
There are benefits of giving offenders longer prison punishment. Firstly , spending long time in prison provides an opportunity to rethink what they did .For example, if some one did the crime than he or she should provide re-education in prison so that he/she realize his/her guilty. I saw one culprit who done some crime. But when he came back from prison it totally change .Now he is doing job and living with his parents. He look like a gentle no one say after seen him that he did that serious crime . Secondly, If offenders are in prison which is far from society there might be possibility of reduction of crime in society.
However , some people are against that leaving people in prison for long time means they will mix with other criminals so their character will not improve. If they mix with other criminal than they get bad information and the higher possibility it is for them to imitate of criminals. As a consequence they become serious criminals and will cause damage to society. Sometime culprit do some minor crime such as stolen some minor thing.Those people should not provide long time in prison sentence.To exemplify ,I have one experience in my life during winter session that I boy stolen T-shirt from shop because he don’t have much money to buy cloths. So I think those type of people should not be put on prisons they should put NGO.
In a nutshell , I concede Government should make one community which check the crime of culprit .Long prison sentences should remain for those who commit heinous crime such as murder and rape.
