In conclusion. Parents have to be aware of this and have to respect their children‟s rights. Besides that. Nowadays kids are getting more freedom than they used to.(250 word) Today Traffic issues are one of the main concerns that facing big cities. Hong Kong and Tokyo.working might not be enough for most business people. especially on working days rush hours. it is clear that the lack of attention from parents to their children is getting worse which did not happen earlier. The same problem is even noticed on weekends for shopping and entertainment purposes. Next. educating children has become harder than ever before. some governments implement some new systems to . even housewives started going to work to cover the high expenses of modern life. As mentioned above. like London. it will make parents sometimes feel difficult to spend time with their children. he only way to reduce the amount of traffic in cities today is by reducing the need for people to travel from home for work. Some argument suggests reducing the figures of working people which is not reasonable because of the growing needs for work every day.

like buses. when other people like film actors or company bosses are paid huge sums of money that are out of proportion to the importance of the work that they do. for instance. -How far do you agree? -What criteria should be used to decide how much people are paid? In our world industry of entertainment like cinema and music are better paid than industry education and health even the last two are more helpful. In addition. This writing is found under the following category(ies): Agree or Disagree Some people feel that certain workers like nurses. Doctors and teachers have high response from their clients. Film with actor can be sold . certainly. they activated the public transportation in very useful ways to serve must of the working people on rush hours. they impose an amount of money as traffic fees for passing some roads or for parking services. However it is not so easy to do that. Take into account this factors it will need to think about to do their jobs well-paid. like moving the shopping malls and universities to rural areas or locate these activities on the city‟s boundaries. even offices or government buildings are placed in different locations to distribute the heaviness on centers. doctors and teachers are taken huge amount of percent in workforce of country. But it can be explained that health and education supported by government while entertainment provided with money from business. trains and underground metro. Mistake of doctors may cost a life of patient. And teacher fault will affect the person of students and pupils. Opposite film actors get money from cinema business. On the other hand. this idea can be implemented only on people who use their own cars. new studies took place on Urban Design and researchers are considering the traffic problems for planning new areas or new cities and suggesting significant ideas. I agree with the argument of reducing the number of people who travel to the centers by moving a number of working places to other areas and locating some other activities like shopping malls on different parts of the city to avoid the possibilities of traffic problems in city centers. In conclusion. doctors and teachers are undervalued and should be paid more. However government should hold salary of doctors and teachers at enough high level because their work is undervalued. And all of them get salary from government. Workers like nurses.avoid the jam during working days.

people might argue about the weakness of a female leader related with the lack of firm determination and harsh punishment required to control violence. It may be lower than social workers. In sum. contemporary politics is based on general consensus where women also have equal rights. Besides this. It is not require special knowledge and concentration like doctor‟s work. Actors cratered by their personal quality and skills. A healthy participation rate of female political leaders will create a world of peace lovers. it is felt that women‟s kind hearted personality will create a consensus among different groups or parties of a nation and it will definitely bring down violence. if she is lenient and soft-hearted.

And to develop system which consider best salary for the most experienced and educated person. On the same time. . doctors and teachers should provide with high paid salary. Whether it is violence in Middle East or civilian war in European countries I personally believe that higher proportion of women politicians can be beneficial not only to bring down violence but crime as well. And bring big money their creatures. And by these criteria only the best get high wages other get low. Take Sonia Gandhi for example. a nation can be benefitted in terms of less violence if these peace-keepers are brought in front to lead the national or international politics. To conclusion. she is able to manage a good coalition government and maintain peace among various parties and extremists who are ready to destroy peace and bring violence keeping the laws at bay. they are proven teambuilders who can circumvent any clash among people. one may easily co-relate violence with lower number of female participation in politics.

The truth is that dealing with this anticipated situation is far harder than the original one. On the other hand. Clearly. looking back at the issue. One of the most concerned issues is whether we should use oil price as a method to inhibit this problem.

Firstly.increasing price of oil is a good one.

At the end. band 9) Blood sports have become a hot topic for debate in recent years. in the history shows people followed many other sports related to human physique and mind. the value of the life is to be considered as the same as like everyone‟s precious life. In spite of this individual responsibility is more important in this aspect. Pride and the past culture are the two significant causes for the cunning game “Blood sport”. They must behave and see as their own pet. All blood sports should be banned. from my perception-banning blood sport is not a solution for this arrogance. Now days. the blood event has attaining its popularity in the recent decade because of the enthrallment and people avid for the sport in relates to others. but hurting and hunting is easy compared to others. Moreover. Discuss the main arguments for this statement and give your own opinion. Some organization and private sector are there in the recent years to protect and provide life.market is becoming increasingly competitive. government or private organization could conduct private camps to make people aware of this inhumanity and provide laws to . For the reasons mentioned above. Young people who do not have qualifications from a university or college will not be able to compete. and sometimes there are hundreds of applicants for one position in a company. However. as it would increase rather declining. (271 words. instead they are the successor of the previous old tradition. they are not in the recent era and proliferating quickly. humanity is reduced or diminished among the human for the sake of their own happiness. As society develops it is increasingly seen as an uncivilized activity and cruel to the helpless animals that are killed. Additionally. Instead. So society took the evil event in spite of good and considered it as the honor to be a superior and to show their supreme power.

if anyone have money. In India. Take India for instance. . In the following paragraphs I discuss both sides of the coin. Thus it is clear from the above example that money is pivotal to provide even the qualification which is the base of every individual. world is inclined towards the materialistic gadgets and gizmo's. which is impossible without money. in which money play an indispensable role. In the contemporary scenario. Apart from this. To begin with. I would like to conclude that money play a significant role in one's life. big guns and the rank and file have enormous amount of money. however some people disagree with this. but these people often suffer with severe diseases such as heart attack. diabetes. Yet. schools has become commercialized. morality level in their children is very low because of having significant amount of money. As in India. Money is pertinent in prevailing days. For instance.regulate this event and could restrict this event should happen only for certain festivals. Parents have to spend a huge amount of money to make their children humanitarian because they know that education is quint essential to their kids to compete in this competitive world. Without money no one can embark the edifice of success. however some say it is not . On the contrary. and so on. Wind of development is on its face. Discuss both and give your opinion. these people are unable to enjoy there lives because of these sort of illness. some people say that people who have lots of money still are unhappy. that person can buy anything and can go anywhere around this globe. They trying to give them the best education. keeping all the above in consideration. Eventually.Hence there is a tremendous change in the life pattern. Parents do diligent efforts to nourish and nurture they children. Besides this. it is immortal to kill animals for self-esteem and money. Some people believe that money is everything in today's life . But I am at the variance of the above because if one have money he/she can easily fine the solution of all these problems.

Another important aspect of having your own building is privacy and safety. Are there more advantages than disadvantages to living in a house rather than in an apartment? There are several reasons why people choose to move into a house or apartment. In a large city or for young people without a family apartments can be a more cost effective and convenient solution. . Moreover. while most people seems to prefer living in houses apartments offer some practical advantages. this units have less space in most cases. One must expect to spend more time working in the garden or repainting the walls of a house. it can be easier to simply move if one‟s requirements of space changes. I prefer living in an apartment at this stage of my life but at some time in the future I want to move in a house of my own. In contrast. They are also more suitable for the space and safety requirements of a family or a person working from home. also there are less duties in terms of maintenance and administration compare to living in a house. I would therefore argue that apartments are more adequate housing in places where space is scare. The principal benefit of dividing a house in several units is cost savings as some facilities and common costs are shared are fewer expenses for each resident. Moreover. Hence. Such responsibilities are usually shared among the residents when living in an apartment building. For families it can be particular important to have a safe playground for their children. Not only are the costs usual higher but the residents are usually responsible for all repairs and maintenance. apartment are more cost effective and require less commitment by the inhabitants. They may even come with a private yard or garden or extra space for hobbies. There are clear benefits of living in a house in terms of privacy and safety and having more room but it may also involve more costs and effort. Generally. Flats are more often rented instead of sold. Someone can not judge which one is better in between home and set of rooms as it is depend upon individuals need. All things considered. houses are more spacious than apartments. Certainly. neighbours life in some distance and therefore conflicts with them are less likely compared to living wall-to-wall in apartments. In the countryside houses tend to be more affordable. living in an apartment means less commitment and more flexibility. However. Usually. Personally. such as large cities. Both houses and apartments have its own advantages and disadvantages.Some people prefer to live in a house. there are also downsides to staying in your own house. the best type of housing depends on the circumstances and personal preferences. while others think that there are more advantages living in an apartment. This essay is going to discuss both side benefits and limitations.

it become prime duty of the government to provide a proper help whenever these people need in the hard time of their lives. Thus. for instance. Government earn a huge amount of funds every year. For instance. but I feel that it creates clashes between family members as every body want to see his favorite channel. I think this is not an either / or question. But others said that these matters can be adjustable as for guest we can share room and for things we can cut our needs. In order to justify my point of view.These people honestly fulfill all the requirement yearly. in house family member should have strong relation with each other. The constitution of India has a "slogan" that Indian government is "by the people. I is clear for this example that the election of government only occur to satisfy and satiates the requirement of the citizens of that country. . This truth is universally acknowledged fact that problem of food and unemployment in some countries has gained a depressing magnitude. However. But opponents said that the house is not become home with just bricks and space. It is claimed that apartments are cheaper than houses.Some people think that house is better than a single room because it gives more relaxation to mind as there is more space than apartment. It is tough to choose which is better as it depends upon many factors like economic position. Many people said that management of goods and guest is easy in house. Hence. I would like to state that. for the people and of the people. the above example proves that. Take Australia. Therefore. personal taste and availability. I totally agreed with the above statement because of the following reasons. such as income tax. people of Australia pay a significant part of their wages as tax. Both have equal importance in the world. It is believed that this is responsibility of the government to look after the people in their difficult phase of lives. People pay an enormous amount of taxes every year. People make the government for their own benefits. with respect to that. I would like press upon the fact that. Government of any country can make or mar the lives of the country men. carbon tax. government should always be there for the inhabitants of their country. Discuss it and give your opinion. To strengthen my point of view further. toll tax and so on. Some argued that government should take care of the disadvantaged people such as unemployment and needy. space is problem in apartments this point decreases value of low price advantage. Although many people believe that in apartments people need less things like only one television which has double profit for someone as it cut his electricity bill also.

people feel that this trend will vanish their traditional languages. trading and getting higher education from any part of the globe. It depends upon the perception and perspective of different people as to how they take these changes. I would like to conclude that. many people are of the view that this will disappear many languages. Many people feel this is a positive trend and that a world with fewer languages promotes harmony and understanding between people. Since technology has taken unimaginable strides over the years. I would like to state that knowing a common language has played a pivotal role in the prevailing scenario. Take India. Several languages die every year. Beside this. For instance. I am at the variance of this statement because it is today demands to know the global language as we are living in a technosavvy world whereby nothing is possible without communication as every business. However. To begin with. owing to no communication barriers. the youth of this country prefer to speak in English. On the contrary. English is known as a global language because it is assimilation and amalgamation of all the different countries.as I believed that these little help by government gives us an opportunity and way out to combat the problem. with help of government people get lazy and lethargic. Keeping all the above in consideration. Now any modern man can become a globe trotter capable of visiting. it is clear from the above example that having less languages gives more opportunities to explore the world more closely. shopping and social interaction are held on internet. I would like to conclude that it is a positive .However. some people are of the view that. It is argued that in the wake of technology a significant number of languages are weeded out. Eventually. they never learn to overcome from their hardship of lives. education. as they believe that this will be congenial for them to settle down their career in near future. Hence. people can get a chance to know each other very well. any country can embark the paradigm of excellence and epitome of perfection. instead to talk in their own national language. But I am at the variance of this statement. For instance. world has become a global village. Thus. The reason could be that now the multinational companies are found any corner of the world and they hire only people that are good in English. Analyze both sides of this argument and provide your opinion. keeping all the above in consideration. it has been seen from the given example that. with the prodigious efforts of the government. The following paragraphs depict both sides of the coin.

However. Discuss both attitudes and express your opinion.approach that nowadays. . This is actually what impresses people and yrge them to believe that there are people that have been born with specifis talents. for instance for sport or music. they finally succeeded it. noone can improve their skills in order to reach to the absolute perfect scale. I hold the view that there are actually some children that from the very young age seem to be very talented in different skills. There is much discussion as to whether people are indeed born with talents or anyone can be taught how to gain certain skills. Therefore. Some cultures value old age while others value young age. one has to flow with the waves of water. On the other hand. several people argue that everyone can become a good musician or athlete. but after a lot of practise and lessons. There are lots of examples of children that they didn't seem to be able to ever be a musician. provided that they are taught by qualified teachers. there are several children that are definetely very good at music or sports even from their young age even though they have not be taught how to do this before. On the one hand. there are many children that have managed to develop their skills on their own without any help from experts. because to embark the paradigm of excellence and epitome of perfection. as they play an essential role in order to identify these talentes children and help them to improve their skills. It is actually very common to hear people saying that "this kid was born to do this". and others are not. Taking all the above into consideration. that does not mean that experts and teachers are not important. It is generally believed that some people are born with certain talents. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion. but without the appropriate training from experts. What is needed is to be really keen on learning and willing to try hard in order to achieve your goal. it is sometimes claimed that any child can be taught to become a good sports person or musician. Moreover. for example. we have fewer languages to deal with. it is thought that each one of us has a specific talent that was born with it. Everyone can become what he is dreaming through the right and professional training. However.

I believe a middle-ground should be achieved on these two aspects that will allow us to both celebrate youth and embrace old age. elderly people are valued for their abundance of knowledge. Youth also becomes the standard for beauty and old age becomes the enemy of youth. In conclusion. both add irreplaceable values to the overall well-being of the society. nowadays we see more cultures are adopting values from each side and blending the two to create a comfortable middle-ground. In some cultures. I am going to discuss both sides. therefore both should be valued. I believe beauty lies within both young and old age. These cultures tend to embrace the energy and beauty in youth but show a much lesser respect for the elderly. State your reasons from both sides and give your opinion. Youngsters are also seen as pure and fresh minds that have not been contaminated the corruptions of the society. old age deserves respect and along with that respect. old age is the evidence of good fortune and long life. possibilities and energy. rather than respecting and valuing the inner beauty.To many cultures. Some people think that children should learn to compete in the world. In this essay. elderly people are often given a level of authorities. Because of that. Young people are the building blocks that possess the power to shape the future. Most importantly. Childhood education is one of the hottest topics nowadays as people are becoming more aware of the importance of children's upbringing. While some cultures regard age as a synonym dependencies and disabilities. On one side. youth is highly regarded and valued because it represents hope. I believe that old and young have something different offer the society. On the other hand. and the source of wisdom that cannot be learnt from books. Firstly. Therefore. while youth is valued for the future prospects and old age is valued for the past contributions. people have been competing with each other consciously or unconsciously since . Some people hold opinions that they should learn to be competitive enough to embrace their future life while others think they should have been gregarious. old age is the symbol of wisdom and the representation of authorities. their previous contributions to society and their unique views because of their accumulated experiences. a negative shade has been casted old age in these cultures. both aspects are true and has strong supporting points. Old age is often associated with maturity in decisions. Because there are truths to both sides of the perspectives. but others think the children should be taught to cooperate so as to become more useful to society.

people have to become more competent. For example. The society where we live is a huge family that contains everyone‟s contribution. Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience. with the ongoing growth of the number of people working abroad. Cooperation is also a way to make things easier and more effective with everyone‟s participation and contribution. money exchanging. For example. children should become more competitive and at the same time they need to learn how to cooperate with others as both sides will bring merits to them. parents spur their children to be outstanding among their peers and every one of us is eager for success or a relatively good standard of living conditions. children also need to cooperate with others. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion. It is a common phenomenon that many applicants compete for one position in job markets. filmmaking. Working abroad can help employees earn a great deal of money and gain more benefits. it is not a platform for a single person. in order to get a good job with high salary and social status. In conclusion. some people think this trend has many negative impacts. . children need to be taught how to share and cooperate with other people as they live in the family. In other words. students work diligently for more opportunities to get top grades or to be able to enter well-known universities. Hence. for instance. products circulation and international trade. You should spend about 40 minutes on this task. businessmen strive for more efficient ways of production to save cost and increase profits.they were born. Moreover. However. Write at least 250 words. the lesson from the observation is that teaching people how to compete at a young age is of high importance. There are many advantages of living and working in a foreign country. On the other hand. there have been some negative impacts on cultural lives. management board in a company is usually made up by more than one person. there is undoubtedly a need for a variety of people in order to make them run properly. However. Hence. I'm going to cover both the up side and down side of this matter. Speaking of. In this essay.

This paper will examines this issue from the two viewpoints and from that. Asian software developers who work in Australia have the opportunities to improve their English level and their software related knowledge as well. negative impacts also exist along with the positive points mentioned. you can enrich your expertise. Next. Some people believe that this result is fair while the others are against it. if this trend happens so quickly. Some people think this is fully justified while others think it is unfair. it would result in the explosion of immigration in immigrant countries.Firstly. It is true that in today's society the income of a famous professional sport player is far larger than the ones of other careers. Moreover. thereby leading to the increase of brain drain in those countries. For example. it can be seen why this phenomenon is justified. The positive side is that skilled employees have opportunities to improve their expertise and study new cultures. Write at least 250 words. The down side is that the countries where the workers come from will have less chance to develop quickly. invaluable work experience and the knowledge about the new culture where you live are two of the many advantages you will get from working abroad. On the other hand. Without skilled workers. . With the professionalism from the workplace. Based on the discussion. Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience. Employees who work abroad tend not to go back to their home countries. I personally think working abroad should be encouraged but it should be strictly moderated and controlled by the government. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion. working abroad seems to have both positive and negative impacts. In summary. the new culture that you have to adapt yourself into will help you have a new picture of what is happening outside your country. the countries which are normally developing countries will not be able to develop at the same pace as they could have. Successful sports professionals can earn a great deal more money than people in other important professions. You should spend about 40 minutes on this task.

there are more people who can actually have large incomes. there are only a few sport professionals who can earn huge salary while for other professions. Sooner or later they . however. Even when people believe they are resisting change themselves. think that change is always a good thing. everyone has to devote himself to the hardest training course in order to be a champion or a famous sport athlete. The reason is that others jobs are in more demand compared to sports. successful sport professionals will contribute a huge value of entertainment worldwide. Firstly. Hence. Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience. to earn a great deal of money because of the hardness he exchanged for glory. Some people prefer to spend their lives doing the same things and avoiding change. It is caused by a wrong comparison between the number of famous sport players who can earn a great deal of money and the number of people from other careers who can earn good money. it is justify for an expert sport players. In short word. In conclusion. Secondly. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion. familiar things are living in denial. who is popular. some people believe that this difference in incomes is significantly unfair to other professions. More specifically. This has been driven by technological and scientific breakthroughs that are changing the whole way we view the world on an almost daily basis. This means that change is not always a personal option. Write at least 250 words Over the last half century the pace of change in the life of human beings has increased beyond our wildest expectations. However. people should pay an equivalent amount of money for their contribution even it is usually higher than for other careers. Those people who believe they have achieved some security by doing the same. people should pay a worthily money for their contributions to the society to prevent an unfair situation with other careers. Others. As a result. and we need to constantly adapt to keep pace with it.There are two reasons why it is fair for sport players to earn a greater deal than others. they cannot stop the world around them from changing. but an inescapable fact of life. it is justify for a famous athlete to gain more money than others. However. a successful athlete has the right to earn a great deal of money by exchanging his hard working for his succeed.

I look forward to seeing you here soon. does not necessarily have good outcomes. You do NOT need to write your own address. reaching the conclusion that change is inevitable is not the same as assuming that „change is always for the better‟. I have already received your invitation letter. In your letter: • Thank him/her for the invitation • Explain why you cannot come • Give him/her your other news You should write at least 150 words. I have to make sure the project can be finished on time by working through this holiday. Begin your letter as follows: Dear __________ Dear Peter. This is because it is the rich and powerful people in our society who are able to impose changes (such as in working conditions or property developments) that are in their own interests. A lot of innovations are made with the aim of making money for a few. it is not always the case that new things are promoted because they have good impacts for the majority of people. I would say that change can be stimulating and energising for individuals when they pursue it themselves. I hope you can come here and spend your valuable time with us.\ A friend who lives in another country has invited to you come and stay with him/her on your next holiday. I have been promoted to a manager‟s position recently. I am very thankful to you for this offer. I also want to inform you that I am going to get married in March. By the way. I am unable to visit you this holiday since I will be working overtime during the period. Write a letter to your friend. As you might know.

I am now managing a very important project which was given to my company last month. You are too busy to accept the invitation. but that all change. Hence.will find that the familiar jobs no longer exist. . Unluckily. In conclusion. This project plays a significant role in the development of this company since this is a government project worth more than a million dollars and it is also about the reputation of my company.

While there are certainly strong feelings on both sides of the argument in western Europe.Best wishes. One reason for this is that it is more and more common for the wife to go out to work because it is now accepted that woman have as much right to work as men. A particular worry is that parents no longer are able to provide sufficient care and support for their children. the parents will still spend time with their children even though they both work. My own view is that this is generally true. Many children do not get as much attention from their parents as children did in the past. when we consider cultural development. however. there is debate whether that change has been for the better or the worse. In the present day. Television has had a significant influence on the culture of many societies. Modern lifestyles mean that many parents have little time for their children. We should also consider. my own view is that television has had a largely positive influence on our society. My conclusion is that generally most children see less of their parents and this is due to changing lifestyles. However. A second reason is that divorce has increased and in single-parent families children only ever see one parent. In this situation we should note that the children frequently did not see much of their father during the working week. To what extent do you agree or disagree? One common concern nowadays is how modern lifestyles can have a negative effect on family life. If we look at the past. that these changes are not the same for all families. for instance. However. that traditional structure has changed in many cultures. In low income families. it has always been normal for both parents to work. His wife‟s role was to stay at home and bring up the children. but not always so. this is not always the case. To what extent would you say that television has positively or negatively affected the cultural development of your society? It is unarguable that television has had a considerable impact and changed the world in which we live. if the family is close-knit. A consequence of this is that many children do not see their mother as often as they would have done in the past. Likewise. . the traditional family structure was the husband was the head of the family and his duty was to provide for his immediate family by going out to work.

be levied for admittance? Discuss this issue. and give your opinion. argument is that if they did levy a charge fewer people would go to museums. we may become couch potatoes Should museums and art galleries be free of charge for the general public. they no longer take part in more traditional forms of cultural entertainment. On the other hand. The first argument is that institutions like museums are a public service and therefore there should be free access to the man in the street. The other major argument is that because people watch so much television. there are a variety of ways in which cultural development has been assisted by television. I also believe that there is also a case for saying that they should charge an entrance fee like other attractions. even a voluntary charge. Perhaps the principle argument is the lowbrow nature of many programmes. particularly sitcoms and soap operas. in the nineteenth century only a small proportion of people could go to the ballet or the theatre. Should museums and art galleries be free of charge to the general public. it is important that we do not watch it too much and that we watch the right sort of programme. A second positive effect is that on television we can learn more about other cultures and societies because there are so many interesting documentaries about other countries.There are. they are simply entertained. or should a charge. Governments do not have sufficient funds to subsidise all such institutions . In contrast. be levied for admittance One very complex issue in today‟s world is the funding of museums and art galleries. While there is an argument that they should be free to the general public and funded by governments. several reasons why it can be argued that television has a negative effect on cultural development. An example here is how traditional dancing and music is becoming much less popular because people are staying at home to watch the television. Here the major argument is that television has allowed the whole of society access to cultural entertainment. However. and related. or should a charge. If for example there was a charge only the wealthy could afford to enjoy works of art. even a voluntary charge. it is now possible for everyone to enjoy these on television. My personal conclusion is that television is a largely positive influence. however. there is only one major argument on the other side of the debate. This is that both museums and art galleries need to charge an entrance fee if they are to survive in the modern world. Those who argue that museums should be free typically make one of two arguments. The second. If we watch the wrong sort of programme and watch too much television. People who watch these programmes do not learn anything. This would be serious as they are educational institutions and standards would fall. However. For example.

What are the advantages and/or disadvantages of reducing the working week to thirty five hours? It is unquestionable that rising unemployment is one of the most pressing issues in the industrial world. In this case. then its wage bill would rise and its products might become more expensive and less competitive compared to companies with longer working weeks. My personal position is that there is no clear answer to this question as there are such strong arguments on both sides. the Tate Modern in London could not have been founded without revenue from admissions. In summary. Not only would unemployment be reduced. then employers will be forced to engage more staff. By way of illustration. My own personal view is that it would be better not to introduce the shortened working week because it works only in theory and not in practice. This argument is based on economic competitiveness. but the working conditions of employees on very long shifts would also be significantly improved. this solution is somewhat controversial as it has both positive and negative effects. Perhaps it is possible for some museums and galleries to charge fees and for others not to. however. The reasoning is that if workers are not allowed to work for more than 35 hours weekly. the intended benefit to the personnel would not happen. As a result. It will depend on the situation of the individual museum or gallery. a factory employing 300 manual workers doing 10 hours a day might employ 450 workers. . Therefore these galleries and museums need to charge their customers not only to survive but to update their exhibitions and make new purchases. One solution that has been put forward is to cut the working week to a maximum of 35 hours. Unemployment is one of the most serious problems facing developed nations today. it is possible that the company either might become insolvent or it would have to make some employees redundant. However.and there are other priorities for public money. It is fairly easy to understand the reasons why this proposal has been made. a strong argument not to implement this proposal. we can see that this is clearly a complex issue as there are significant advantages and disadvantages to the proposal. If a company was forced to employ more workers to produce the same amount of goods. For example. There is also. There would be at least two advantages to this.

One must expect to spend more time working in the garden or repainting the walls of a house. For families it can be particular important to have a safe playground for their children. neighbours life in some distance and therefore conflicts with them are less likely compared to living wall-to-wall in apartments. Moreover. However. such as large cities. Certainly. while most people seems to prefer living in houses apartments offer some practical advantages. living in an apartment means less commitment and more flexibility. Flats are more often rented instead of sold. Such responsibilities are usually shared among the residents when living in an apartment building. Generally. In a large city or for young people without a family apartments can be a more cost effective and convenient solution. The principal benefit of dividing a house in several units is cost savings as some facilities and common costs are shared are fewer expenses for each resident. I prefer living in an apartment at this stage of my life but at some time in the future I want to move in a house of my own. Moreover.Some people prefer to live in a house. Hence. Not only are the costs usual higher but the residents are usually responsible for all repairs and maintenance. Usually. There are clear benefits of living in a house in terms of privacy and safety and having more room but it may also involve more costs and effort. the best type of housing depends on the circumstances and personal preferences. there are also downsides to staying in your own house. In contrast. . this units have less space in most cases. houses are more spacious than apartments. Are there more advantages than disadvantages to living in a house rather than in an apartment? There are several reasons why people choose to move into a house or apartment. while others think that there are more advantages living in an apartment. Another important aspect of having your own building is privacy and safety. also there are less duties in terms of maintenance and administration compare to living in a house. They may even come with a private yard or garden or extra space for hobbies. it can be easier to simply move if one‟s requirements of space changes. In the countryside houses tend to be more affordable. Personally. All things considered. I would therefore argue that apartments are more adequate housing in places where space is scare. They are also more suitable for the space and safety requirements of a family or a person working from home. apartment are more cost effective and require less commitment by the inhabitants.
