The following essay was written by Abdulla. She
writes why she disagrees on people’s too much focus on money.
Many people say that we now live in 'consumer
societies' where money and possessions are given too much importance. To what extent
do you agree or disagree?
Nowadays it is often said that we live in materialistic
world and money plays an important role of whole our life and it is valued too
highly. My personal view is that some people are unbelievably money – oriented,
but many of us know that there are more important things in our lives than
Firstly, money has great opportunities to make our daily
life comfortable that everyone could get advanced technology tools which make
life easier. But it seems to me that, because of modern life style people lose
contact with their relatives and turn self conscious one. For instance, modern
generations use social network sites such as Facebook to share their feelings
with others, but it is not enough to give your feelings to partner as well as
you wish . As a result people get away from the real life.
Secondly some people believe that assets are main factor in
modern society. However, I would argue that property do not have really great
significance in common life. It could be beneficial to live well but property
cannot buy people’s love. Because of that in human’s life intense feelings are
more worthwhile rather that possessions. And also being love is one of the main
factors which make life admirable it is no doubt that there is not any
existence could beat this feeling. Consequently it is not more happiness to have
got more poverty.
In conclusion, I am of the view that people must not pay
attention much on money and also poverty. It is not necessary to have got more
materialistic things in life than to feel happiness to give or get love
Essay got off-topic and does not address the question
whether you agree or disagree that money is given too much importance by
society. Arguments and examples are weak and not concrete enough. It does not
prove that society doesn’t focus much on materialism.
Good vocabulary was used: social network sites,
materialistic things, advanced technology.
Good linking words were used: however, in conclusion,
firstly, secondly. However, improve organization by using the 5-paragraph
Body Paragraph 1 -Agree 1
Body Paragraph 2 – Agree 2
Body Paragraph 3 – Disagree 1
