Topic 9. Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Face-to-face                                                       communication is better than other types of communication, such as letters, email,                                                                               or telephone calls.

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Face-to-face communication is better
than other types of communication, such as letters, email, or telephone calls. Use specific reasons
and details to support your answer.
Sample essay 1.
There are many different ways of communications, such as letters, emails, or telephone calls.
However face-to-face communication still remains the most efficient way of communication
between people.
Firstly, in face-to-face communication people can get direct response from the other party. When
we talk with our friends, we can get feedback immediately from their verbal response, body
language and facial expressions. Based on these responses, we can know what's the next step to
take, such as how to carry on the conversation, and change the direction or finish the conversation
if necessary. Sometimes, speaking words and body languages may not mean the same thing.
Although we can hear words from a telephone conversation from our friends but we do not
always know if they really mean it. This is also true in criminal inspections. Police inspectors can
judge whether the suspect is telling the truth through his or her body languages, therefore get new
clues and solve a criminal case more quickly. Thus, face-to-face communication is more
perceptible and can help us understand a speaker's true feeling better than other ways of
communication.
  Secondly, face-to-face communication is the most helpful way to express ourselves. In
communication it is just not enough for us to say the words; we need eye contact, body language
to express our feelings. Sometimes we are so happy or angry that we are out of words. At these
times, there is nothing more efficient to express our happiness or anger than a big hug or turn our
face to another side. When we are a tourist in a foreign country, language is not always enough,
and gesticulations might help us get understood more quickly. We can order in a restaurant by
simply pointing our fingers to the menu when we do not know how to pronounce an item exactly.
    Finally, face-to-face communication is indispensable in situations such as a relationship. Lovers
need body contact such as a hug, a kiss and more, which cannot be done in letters or emails.
Although lovers can use letters or emails to communicate, being apart for a long time is definitely
not beneficial to a relationship.
In brief, face-to-face communication is a very important way for us. It is good for better
understanding. It is more visible, direct and more effective than any other ways.

 

 































Topic10. A company is going to give some money either to support the arts or to                                                                         protect the environment. Which do you think the company should choose?


A company is going to give some money either to support the arts or to protect the
environment. Which do you think the company should choose? Use specific reasons and examples
to support your answer.
Sample essay.
Deciding between supporting the arts and protecting the environment is a difficult choice to make,
but I think I would choose protecting the environment. Arts help to maintain our culture and serve
as a source of entertainment. However, we need a healthy environment in order to survive so we
must protect it. We need to protect the environment now to help prevent health problems, to
maintain the ecosystem, and to preserve the Earth for our children.
Pollution from factories and cars can cause damage to the environment. Moreover, pollution
causes health problems particularly for children and the elderly who have weaker immune
systems. We need to ensure that there are controls on the amount of pollution when possible so as
to prevent health problems caused by breathing dirty air.
We also need to pay attention to the ecosystem. Trees, plant life, and people all depend on each
other. An unhealthy environment can have harmful effects on the ecosystem. For example, if a
plant dies because of changes to the environment and that plant is food for a animal, that animal
won't have any food. If humans use that animal as a food source, there could be big problems.
If we do not respect our environment now, it will continue to get worse and our children will
suffer the consequences. They would not have the same quality of air to breathe or natural beauty
to admire. That would be sad.
Without clean air to breathe, a healthy ecosystem, and a future for our children, the human race
would not survive. That's why protecting our environment is important. If we have a healthy
environment, we have healthy children who will be able to participate and appreciate the arts.

People have different ways of escaping the stress and difficulties of modern life. Some read;
some exercise; others work in their gardens. What do you think are the best ways of reducing
stress? Use specific details and examples in your answer.
Sample essay 1.
In today's society, everyday we may face some kind of stress and difficulties from work, school or
family. In order to escape them, people have different methods. Some read, some exercise, while
others work in their gardens. From my point of view, I would like to use different ways according

those unpleasant things and let my head sober. After listening to those inspiring music, I feel that I
am full of encourage overcoming difficulities. Then I will calmly analyse my circumstance and

and appreciating music are the most suitable for me to erase stress.

 

 



















Topic 12. Some people say that computers have made life easier and more convenient.                                                Other people say that computers have made life more complex and stressful. What is your                                         opinion?

Some people say that computers have made life easier and more convenient. Other people say
that computers have made life more complex and stressful. What is your opinion? Use specific
reasons and examples to support your answer.
Sample essay 1.
      The use of computer is increasingly popular in modern society. Some people think that the
computer makes life more convenient and easier because they can compile documents, buy goods
through the Internet and do other works on the computer. Nevertheless, in my opinion, the
computer makes life more complex and stressful. There are many instances supporting my
opinion.
   Before the computer was invented, people only need to learn the knowledge of mathematics,
physics, chemistry and so on. However, today people have to learn how to operate the computer,
to use a variety of software and if the computer does not work, people have to learn how to repair
it. People have to learn not only the knowledge of software but also that of hardware. No ending
learning makes people exhausted and their life more complex.
The computer also makes life more stressful. The society in which we live is called "information
society& quot ;. Thanks for the development of the computer, the rhythm of life are increasingly
rapid. The business men has so many meetings to attend, so many e-mails to deal with that they
have no time to have his lunch. Some students have to work late on the computer to do the
homework at night. There are more and more people struggling from the nervous sickness and
complaining the "busy life".
The rapid development of the computer makes people feel stressful, too. The new generation of
the software and the hardware, the update of them, all of these make people have to pay more and
more time and money on their computers.
Although the computer has become an indispensable part of our life, it can be concluded from the
above statements that the computer makes life more complex and stressful.

 

 

 

























Topic 13. Some universities require students to take classes in many subjects                                                                                                      Other universities require students to specialize in one subject. Which is better?

Some universities require students to take classes in many subjects. Other universities require
students to specialize in one subject. Which is better? Use specific reasons and examples to
support your answer.

Sample essay 1.
    Some universities require students to choose a variety of subjects; others only require students to
specialize in one subject. I deem the first one as the premier choice. Among countless factors,
there are three conspicuous aspects as follows.

    The main reason for my propensity that students should take classes in many subjects is that they
can make full use of the abundant resources that a university has to offer. A university has plenty
of educational and research resources. It is a very good idea to make full use of these valuable
assets while studying in the university. The best way to achieve this is to take a variety of subjects
as much as possible. Through learning these courses, a student can get access to knowledge and
resources in different areas. On the contrary, if a student only specializes in one subject, he will
not have a chance to get access to other resources offered by the university.

  Another reason can be seen by every person is that by choosing many subjects students can
broaden their knowledge and make a solid foundation for their future concentrated study.
Whatever the student will concentrate on in his senior years in college, it is necessary that he
choose a wide range of subjects to build the knowledge foundation. Take the field of Business
Management for example, the student has to acquire knowledge in writing, accounting, economics
and human resource management before he can successfully start his major concentration study.
  The argument I support in the first paragraph is also in a position of advantage because students
can be more adaptable in their future career if they choose a variety of subjects during their
university study. It is obvious that the development of modern society requires people with interdisciplinary
and comprehensive knowledge. If a student chooses a variety of subjects in his
university study, and gained a breath and width of knowledge, he will be more adaptable to the
requirement of the society, and be able to easily adjust to many kinds of jobs. This will benefit his
future career.
   In a word, taking into account of all these factors, we may reach the conclusion that students
should take classes in many subjects in a university.

 

 

Topic 14. Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Children should begin


























Essay topics: TOEFL essay: Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? People are never satisfied with what they have; they always want something more or something different. Use specific reasons to support your answer.

I think it’s probably true that people are never satisfied with what they have. They always want something more or something different from what is theirs. This just seems to be part of our human nature. Look at a toddler, Give her a toy to play with and she’ happy—until she sees something else. Then she wants that other toy to play with. If she and her brother are each given a cookie, she’ll look to see whose cookie is bigger. She’ll protest loudly if she thinks her brother is getting more.

“The grass is always greener” is an old expression, but it’s a good expression of how many of us feel. We’re always striving for a better job, a nicer place to live, a fancier car, or more expensive clothes. Part of this reaching for more and better is because we care about what other people think and want to impress them. Part of it is trying to make ourselves feel successful. But there’ also something in our nature that tells us we can do better and reach higher.

This isn’t always a negative quality. There’s another saying: ”A man’s reach should excess his grasp. Or what’s a heaven for?” It’s a good thing to be constantly pushing ourselves and looking for something different. If we don’t try for more and different things, we begin to stagnate, like a pool that doesn’t get any fresh water.

The problem comes when we won’t let ourselves be satisfied with anything we have. If we have a comfortable life and still feel as if something ‘s missing, then we need to look inward. The something that’s missing may be in our spirit.

 

Essay topics 20: Some people say that advertising encourages us to buy things we really do not need. Others say that advertisements tell us about new products that may improve our lives. Which viewpoint do you agree with?

Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

 Advertising has become one of the most powerful mediums to prompt new products. Every person or individual knows to differentiate useful and useless products and services, and in my opinion advertisements give us the detailed information about new products available in the market, which can ease our lives.

Firstly, advertising is a beautiful thing to introduce new products to the market. Even though some of the products are of no use, this can impart some information about the products, its range, advantages and dis-advantages. Take me for example, I love buying things online, which can save time and some money on travel, I am constantly looking for good online store, that have got wide a range of products and quick delivery. I once happened to look at an advertisement about flipkart the online shopping store. The advertisement was decent enough, which made me want to order. Within 24hrs I received the item with good packing and was pleasantly surprised.

Secondly, many people would blindly believe the products and its benefits as advertised. For example, my sister-in-law would buy all sorts of cosmetic creams, face scrub, hair oil and shampoos. Even without doing a proper study about the products ingredients and reviews. This is primarily because of the attitude as well as the mind set to get rid of pimples and hair fall and belief in the advertisement.

In addition, there are certain groups of people, who would buy products advertised by actors even though the products are not of much use to them. For instance, my friend, who stays near by my place, would buy all kind of clothes and accessories as advertised by his favourite actor. These are the tactics and strategies adopted by advertising agencies to attract more customers.

In my opinion, advertisement plays a major role in everybody's life to know about the new products and its range available in the market. Which can definitely improve ones own life.

 

 

Essay topics 21: Many parts of the world are losing important natural resources, such as forests, animals, or clean water Choose one resource that is disappearing and explain why it needs to be saved Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.

Many parts of the world are losing important natural resources, such as forests, animals or clean water but the most important natural resource, which is disappearing, and important for everyone is clean water and without it nobody can survive. There are a number of reasons in support of my view:

With the industrialization and globalization of the economy, every country in this 21st century is trying become a super power. But in this race they forget about the most important natural resources, which are depleting. Big industries are emitting waste materials directly in to the seawater and polluting the sea water drastically. Many animal species living under the water are dying because of this and these harmful gases destroying our environment too. In many developing countries, there are still not proper laws for dumping the industrial and sewage waste. As a result of this sewage and industrial waste is getting dumped in to the oceans regularly resulting in contamination of whole ecosystem. The marine animals such as fishes consume the waste and human beings consume those fishes, which results in serious health conditions damaging the whole food chain. In addition the supply of unfit water to many societies which causes many serious health problems like malaria, dengue etc. Recently, it was said by the United Nations that millions of people around the world don’t have proper access to an improved source of drinking water. Every country must focus on the sustainable development of fresh clean water but with the increase in the population growth in developing countries and the demands of the agriculture and industrial usage have made it difficult for the Governments to provide sufficient clean water to the people.

In conclusion, I would say government should raise public awareness on the importance of water on life and follow strict rules against contamination of water.
