In many countries, governments are spending a large amount of money on improving internet access.
Why is it happening? Do you think it is the most appropriate use of government money?
It is true that an ample amount of government investment money is spent on enhancing of Internet connection. There are a host of reasons that explain for this phenomenon, and I believe that governments should also allocate the money more effectively for other sectors.
To begin with, in the digital age, the amelioration of the Internet provision is becoming a key national investment portfolio in some nations for some reasons. Firstly, Internet connection is a good way in order to help inhabitants who can have omnipresent access to international and local social news. So, thanks to Internet access, citizens are able to acquire more knowledge about new information in others countries in the world. Secondly, in the new business world, an improved Internet supply can facilitate the operation process of governmental companies. Internet connection is an essential tool of business in terms of management their employees, operational control, accounting and so on. Besides, it is become easier to enable corporations to access to their customers and meet the changing needs of customers (satisfy customers’ changing needs by information technologies. Take American business as an example, in recent years, there are various e-commerce and Internet advertisement that are growing which help business to achieve higher levels of operation efficiency.
However, governments should not pour too much public money into the amelioration of Internet provision. The primary reason is that the emergence of information technology has positive contributions in contemporary society, but it also brings more disadvantages for young people. They may become passive and uncreative in their jobs, since they extremely rely on the availability of the Internet. Another justification is that there are several other fields that need money to keep running. For example, healthcare services are facing a great difficulty with some serious diseases such as cancer, diabetes, which would be costly to supply medicines and treatments. So, it seems that the investment health care services should be a priority.
In conclusion, there are a variety of reasons that explain why governments should invest money in enhancing of Internet supply, but they also should consider allocating the capital more appropriately in other fields.

Prison is the common way in most countries to solve the problem of crime. However, a more effective solution is to provide people a better education.
Do you agree or disagree?
Some people think that prison sentences are plausible solutions to diminish crime rates in most nations. Apart from imprisonment policies, educational services play an important role that is used to heighten people’s intellect about criminals. In my perspective, I would argue that prison sentences are far better measures.
On the one hand, the reasons why prisons are extremely necessity in social security are varied. Firstly, imprisonment policies take the dominant role in dealing with prisoners in most countries. Since, the government use prisons as the places to keep people who have broken the law out of society, ensuring the safety for other people. For example, dangerous criminals such as rapists or murderers who pose a threat to society, so they ought to be imprisoned to secure civilized society. Furthermore, prison sentences are the most popular to prevent prisoners. Simply because some criminals are condemned to jail, they have to undergo losing freedom and a miserable life. So this is a flexible measure to deter who have tendency to carry out illegal actions
On the other hand, there are a variety of reasons that explain why education is an effective measure to solve criminals in contemporary society. It is true that education contributes greatly to heighten people’s intellect and to form a civilized community. Simply because citizens can acquire more knowledge and information in terms of the damage of committing crimes, so they can be aware of serious activities that pose a threat in their society and themselves, which leads to a decrease in crime rates. Additionally, thanks to vocational training, inhabitants are able to have a stable life, since fundamental education serves more experienced skills to help they seize the opportunities to get a good job and improve their career path.
In conclusion, I think that both imprisonment policy and education service are a mater key to cope with offenders. However, i believe that prison sentence is much better for governments to handle the problem of crimes.

Le Gellin managed to observe a second Venus transit

But such transit have paved the way what might prove to be one of the most vital breakthroughs in the cosmos
While this showed astronomers that Venus was surrounded by a thick layer of gases refracting sunlight around it, both effects made (it impossible to obtain: không thể có được) accurate timings.
18, johann Franz Encke, Director of the Berlin Observatory, finally determined a value for the AU based on all these parallax measurements: 153,340,000 km. Reasonably accurate for the time, that is quite close to today’s value
By timing the transit from two widely-separated locations, teams of astronomers could calculate the parallax angle - the apparent difference in position of an astronomical body due to a difference in the observer’s position. Calculating this angle would allow astronomers to measure what was then the ultimate goal: the distance of the Earth from the Sun

Many people now live in societies where consumer goods have become cheap
Do advantages outweigh disadvantages?
It is true that the prices of products tend to diminish significantly owing to the increase of productivity and the emergence of technology in recent years. Like everything else, this phenomenon has both negative and positive influences in contemporary society; both sides will be outlined below.
On the positive side, there are various reasons that explain why an affordable price brings several advantages for ordinary people. Firstly, the cheap prices of goods enable inhabitants to purchase a variety of products. Customers can afford many types of merchandises that are basic necessities ( daily necessity) in their daily life in terms of clothing, food and so on. Besides, thanks to this trend, less well-off people are able to expend less money with a tight budget as they used to buy products in previous years. Additionally, a reasonable price allows people from all walks of life and they can purchase many luxurious products and they may save money to access to a better education, healthcare and travelling. For example, nowadays, many people have a tendency to take a trip by plane in many different countries due to cheap airlines.
However, there exist some disadvantages from this trend. To gain more revenue in operation of company, many manufacturers use unqualified materials and unskilled labor to produce products with lower prices. So, the products are not guaranteed about the quality of products, this problem pose a threat in health and safety of customers. Furthermore, the products are made by unqualified materials, leading to short shelf life or poor durability. Therefore, customers may not only save money but also ought to spend more on fix or on purchase new products. Take China as an example, this country always sell many poor quality products with cheap costs in the market. As a result, many people now do not believe and use the products of this country.
In conclusion, it is clear that while a cheap market has ensured several advantages for citizens who live on tiny budget, it also brings some drawbacks for customers in terms of healthcare, shelf life and the durability of the products.

It is more important for schoolchildren to learn about local history than world history.
What to extend to you agree or disagree?
Many people have valued the role of local history to be more important than international history for young leaners. From my perspective, I disagree with those people as both of them have equally essential in school’s program.
On the one hand, it is true that children should be taught the history of their hometown which is indispensable part of school’s curriculum. Young learners will have thorough insights into about what happened in the past and the patriotism of ancestors in their nation. For example, thanks to the lessons about local history in primary and secondary school, children are able to broaden their horizon about how their ancestors defended their land against outside intruders and claimed sovereignty. Therefore, students will take pride in their origin and treasure the life they have today. Besides, it is not only children’s privilegebut also their responsibility to know their hometown’s traditional values.
From another angle, children have to learn about world history to acquire more knowledge about how the world’s past events occurred how occurred in the world’s past events, since young schoolchildren are equipped a more well-around perspective of life. Additionally, through learning international history, children may experience various aspects of life from the other countries’ historical background, so it would benefit for young learners in their path career. Moreover, students who are accumulated experiences and skills of their fields; they may seize the opportunities to work in foreign enterprises in many countries in the world. Take the Second World War as an example, the lessons about how Japanese citizensand their government stood up (đứng dậy)and rebuilt the country to be a big power from a collapse ( sự sụp đổ) after the Second World War bring advantages to young people
In conclusion, I believe that the significance of domestic and international history cannot be brought into comparison to see which one is more necessary, because all of them also bring a particular benefit for schoolchildren.

As computers are being used more and more in education, there will be soon no role for teachers in the classroom. to what extent do you agree or disagree?
Mở bài: +) paraphrase
Body 1: Giải thích tại sao mọi người thích dùng sản phẩm công nghệ trong giáo dục

Kết bài: viết lại đề bài, nêu quan điểm
Modern technology has made itself seemingly essential in current education. While some people think that teacher has not played an important role in classroom, I strongly believe that their appearance is irreplaceable.( không thể thay thế )
On the one hand, it is understandable thatpeople currently are keen on adaptingcutting-edge technology into training methods instead of using conventional ways. Adolescence ( tuổi vị thành niên) is more likely to use high-tech products like laptops, tablets( máy tính bảng ) or smartphones to study because it not only stimulate their lateral thinking but learners also fell more inspiring( cảm hứng) during learning process. For example, students have a tendency to make presentation with "Power Point" and submit assignments through Facebook. Therefore, some people consider that they are able to study without educators and completely rely on computers.
On the other hand, I am argued that teachers are an indispensable part in classroom for some reasons. Firstly, teachers not only teach pupils about knowledge but they also educate them standards of upright conduct ( chuẩn ,ực đạo đức) in society which are seemingly difficult to learn on Internet. Secondly, without teachers, students could not seriously study in classroom because of their indiscipline, especially with unruly child. ( ngang bướng)More importantly, educators help students evaluate their self-improvement as well as give them support during learning process.
In conclusion, although computers are nessesary in education, I still support the view that teachers play an indispensible role in classroom.
Modern technology has made itself seemingly essential; đã làm cho bản than dường như cần thiết
In developing country, children in rural communities have less access to education. Some people believe that the problem can be solved by providing more schools and teachers, while others think that the problem can be solved by providing computers and Internet access. Discuss both views and give your own opinion?
It is true that a proper education ( giáo dục thích hợp|)is still out of reach for students( ngoài tầm với ) who live in distant areas( far flung ares). Some people think that the government needs to offer computers and Internet connection in learning environment to settle this matter. However, I would argue that supplying more schools and educators to remote regions is a far better measure.
On the one hand, some people believe that computer and Internet access are becoming more important in their daily life in the digital age. Since, thanks to these devices, less well- off pupils are able to catch up with contemporary society. Take information technology skills in business as an example, the youth can gain an in depth – knowledge of their career path through educational software. Besides, this major has some requirements for the students about experience skills in terms of Microsoft excel, Microsoft word and so on, so it is a primary reason that explains why Internet connection and computers are really important in learning process for rural trainees. Another reason is that Internet plays a vital role in helping the students acquire more knowledge through websites. There are a variety of computers programs which contain a comprehensive course of self-study ( khóa học toàn diện) therefor they can broaden their horizon without participating in real classes.
On the other hand, schools and trainers are still a fundamental element in the curriculum in distant areas. It is not only a place for classes, but also as meeting rooms which enable pupils to exchange and study the importance of collaboration and socializing with other people. Secondly, most students are unlikely to self-study and self- discipline, so they need to have educators to control their study by regular attendance. Besides, teachers can acknowledge công nhận) these students’ deficiencies( thiếu sót); learners can achieve a good result by repeating the same explanation or giving some suitable assignments.
In conclusion, some people believe that computers and Internet access are extremely necessary in an ideal learning environment for rural students. Apart from these tools, offering schools and teachers are also an effective measure to equip knowledge for less well off pupils.

Many museums and historical sites are mainly visited by tourists but not local people. Why is this the case and what can be done to attract more local people to visit these places?
It is true that a growing number of local citizens tend not to be attracted by historical places and museums. There are a variety of reasons that cause this issue and the government ought to give some measures to gain local people’s interest back.
There are various reasons explaining why local inhabitants are not attracted by historical places. The main reason may be that the young people have a tendency to discover new things in terms of culture, society and so on in strange places in contemporary society Feeling familiar of the locals is also the primary reason of this matter. Take Vietnam as an example, Vietnam has a variety of famous landscapes, but there still exist a number of people who sometimes make a trip to other foreign countries to experience new things in annual year. Another reason is that the authorities have a tight budget to conserve historical sites and museums in their areas, so these attractions become more monotonous and it is not enough to attractive the local people.
However, to prevent this matter, the government ought to have a certain concern in preservation historical places. Firstly, governments should encourage to made history subject a compulsory subject at school to help students to acquire more knowledge about their culture background. Secondly, the government needs to make an effort to improve the quality of tourist services in their countries, for example, they have to expend more supplement budget on rearranging and redecorating these places to attract the attention from local residents.
In conclusion, there are some factors that are the root of the lack of attraction by local inhabitants in their hometown in contemporary society. However, the government should enact some laws to ameliorate this matter.
