Society today is noisier than ever!

    It seems to me that nowadays noise is everywhere. However, in urban world it is taken for granted.

    In big cities people do not even notice the rumble of passing trains, the roar of aircraft or constant hum of traffic. We are just used to all those sources of noise. However, a recent survey has claimed that constant excessive noise cah cause hearing disorders, prevent us from sleaping and affect children's ability to learn and that is true. Because I can feel the disturbing effect of noise while studing at school or at home.

    In my opinion not only usual people have to deal with this problem. Government has to take part too. Because of the noise people feel stressed, this leads to heart deseases. The stress caused by long-term exposure to traffic noise could be responsible for 210000 deaths all over the world. I think that our government could allocate money for improving of noise isolation at least in schools.

   In conclusion I would like to admit that every person has a choise. If he or she is tired of noise in any city, it is possible to move to the countryside to be closer to the nature.

Computers can translate all kinds of languages well. Do our children need to learn more languages in the future?

Computers can translate all kinds of languages well. Do our children need to learn more languages in the future?

Nowadays computers influence our lives in many different ways. The biggest problem is that children do not want to study, do not want to do sport, read books or even develop themselves.

First of all, now it becomes obvious that real knowledge of foreign languages may be replaced by the translators on the Net. However, in my opinion computers cannot translate text as well as it can be done by human brain. Despite the fact that we can use dictionaries on the Internet to translate anything in written form, we cannot use them to translate our speeches. There are too much different accents even in English. I think it is just impossible to take into consideration all aspects of each person’s speech.

Secondly, in my opinion people have to study to improve their brains. If we stop learning, we will become stupid and degradation of the human race will be speeded up! Even now we can see that knowledge of students in math are decreasing. I can suppose that it happens not only in math.

In conclusion I would like to admit that children do have to study a lot and especially languages!

Library report

Two days ago I carried out a survey among my schoolmates about their reading interests. 

I divided this survey into two parts: boys and girls. Now we can definetely see that reading interests depend on the gender of the reader.

Girls prefer to read romantic and historical novels. However, the most popular genre among boys is thriller and compared to girls reading of romantic novels is not hailed at all.  This statistics show that male and female are totally different, perhaps not only in reading interests. However, boys are keen on reading historical novels as well as girls. The same similarity between girls and boys we can observe in poetry. Both girls and boys prefer not to read it.

In conclusion I would like to recommend to buy mostly historical novels, because this genre suits everyone. In addition to that, it might be a good idea to buy thrillers for boys and romantic novels for girls.

Ex. 9

It is said that a good teacher makes a world of difference. When Mrs Kennedy became our form-tutor two years ago, I had no idea just how true this saying was. It's funny how this absent-minded and sometimes rather bad-tempered History teacher has made such a positive impact on the lives of my classmates.

Just 2 years ago our class was called "the worst class in our school", but what can we see now? It is a huge difference. Pupils at least started to study and in addition to that, now they think about their future. What has happened to me? Now I have good relations with all our teachers, my behaviour improved drammaticaly and  I understood what do I want to reach in the future.

I think that Mrs Kennedy had a positive impact on us. In this case we just have to thank her!

Romantic story

This story took place in the previous century. Just 2 people and their deep, sincere love.

Can you imagine that love can stay in hearts of people for ages? They could. Once they met each other, they understood, that it is a true love. So they decised not to touch or even kiss each other, to make their love stronger. They were keeping to this rule until the death.

So now we understand, that they missed an opportunity to enjoy their lives. In my opinion, what they've done was just a waste of time. By the way, I would agree with the statement that "Love is an obsessive delusion that is cured by marriage". In any case, think before getting married!

The goals of your life

The goals of your life

What are the goals of my life? Honestly I have to think about that, cause I cannot just make up something.

It is said, that man during his life has to build a house, plant a tree and raise his son. I probably would agree with that expression. However, those are not the only goals that I have to do. In my opinion goals are different for everyone. For example people who live in Africa are totally different from us. That is why their goals will be different. In India that is not surprising when family has 17 children, however they were born not to grow in a good man, but to earn money for the family.

However, what are my goals? I think that for the nearest 5 years the main goal which I have to reach is
education. Then of course work, then family, then children and so on. But I will try to make my life more exiting.

Arranged marriages

What could really be the advantages and disadvantages of arranged marriages?

In my opinion, arranged marriage is a good way to be stable in our modern world. However for aristocracy and other people of property that was an ideal way to ensure that their fortunes were not devided and their families accumulated wealth. For many of us it seems to be strange, but facts show us that arranged marriages are less likely to break up than mariages based on love. So if you want to live long, happy life with your partner, that is an opportunity!

Nevertheless I would not like to have an arranged marriage, because the only person whom I could trust in this delicate topic is me. I want to be responsible for my choice, so I could not blame anyone else.
