POINTS;

Qualty of information

technology

use 800〜100words


================

I think people will not stop buying newspapers in the future.
But, I think, instead of buying "newspapers" made by paper,peple will buy digital ones.

I have two reasons.

First, the reason why it appeared that people buy newspapers fewer, is because the get information on the Internet.
Internet can provide useful information more faster than newspaper. And it also costs much lower or even free.
However, there also are some information that doesn't tell the truth.That's the big problem of Internet information,
Second, to aboid catching such false news, and get more reliable information comfortably, some people buy news application with their smartphone.
Some people also pay money to subscribe digital newpapers with their e-books such as KIndle, Rakuten Kobo or PC.

Therefore, I think people in the future will keep buying newspapers. But, I expect they will get not only real papers but digital ones.

Water


POINT
● Daily habits
● Technology
●The environment

you should tell your opinion with two reasons.

you should use 80〜100 words

==================================


I agree with this opinion.I have reasons.

First, Japanese care about cleanliness too much.
For example, when we wash dishes, tend to use too much soap and water. Or, we do laundry almost every day.
But we can cut the usage of water by reducing the usage of soap, the times of laundry. we should think twice our daily habits for water and environment.

Second, as our technology is getting better wae can use clean water unconciously. But we must consider that it's not common in the world. In some countries, There are many people who have difficulty to get clean water, and to get it, must walk for a long time.
we should share our technology and knowledge with them and think about how all people live comfortable and finely. At the same time, we should avoid wasting natural resources, such as water, oil, paper in daily life.

Therefore, with these, I think too much water is wasted in Japan.
So we should use that more carefully.

I agree with this opinion.I have two reasons.

First, Japanese care about cleanliness too much.
For example, when we wash dishes, we tend to use too much soap and water. We also do laundry almost every day.
There is a way to cut back on water usage, but it would require us to think more carefully about how much and how often we do laundry and how much soap we use.

Second, as our technology is getting better we can use clean water more unconsciously. But we must consider that such circumstances are not common in the world. In some countries, There are many people who have difficulty to get clean water, some must walk for a long time to get it, for example.
We should share our technology and knowledge with them and think about how all people should live comfortably. At the same time, we should avoid wasting natural resources, such as water, oil, paper in our daily life.

Therefore, because of these reasons, I think too much water is wasted in Japan.
So we should use it more carefully.

Writing essay: buying products that are good for environment

http://www.eiken.or.jp/eiken/exam/grade_2/pdf/201802/2018-2-1ji-2kyu.pdf


Today, some people buy products that are good for the environment. Do you think buying such products will become more common in the future?


I think that buying environment considering products will become more common in the future. I have two reasons.

First, these days, The number of environment considering products are getting increased than before. Besides, the prices are almost as same as products that are not good for environment.
It means that we can get environment considering products more easier before.
Second, movement to reduce non-environment considering products are appeaed especially among big companies.
For example, Starbucks decided to stop using plastic straws.
If big companies try to use environment considering -products, other small companies will also adapt that.

Therefore , mailnly these two reasons, I think that buynig environment considering products will become more common in the future.

I believe so; buying ecofriendly products will become more common in the future. I have two reasons.

First, these days, the number of ecofriendly products is increasing compared to before. Good thing about it is the prices are almost the same as products that are harmful for environment.It only means that we can definitely settle with ecofriendly products.

Secondly, global companies are having great environmental initiatives.

For example, Starbucks decided to go green when they announced to stop using disposable plastic straws by 2020, eliminating more than one billion straws a year. If big companies will take the lead in manufacturing/using ecofriendly products, other small companies will definitely follow.

Therefore, with these, I believe that environmental friendly products will become a trend in the future.

Fair Weather Friends

Fair weather friends means something that can only be used in good weather.
Have you ever had such friends?---Yes,once. She was my best friend, but tuned a fair weather friends.
And, to her, I also tuned a fair weather friend from her best one.


She was my friend when we were junior high school students.
We talked a lot about boys we liked, teachers we didn't like, parents we hated.

But when we became adults we had a quarrel.
She had cheated with some other boys though she had a good boy friend.
I scolded her to stop that but she was annoyed with that.
She said, "OK, enough."
And-- we had broke up since then.


Nowadays, I sometimes meet her with our mutual friend.
But I feel we'll go back to be friends we used to.
