Dear you allEmotion: wink ,

Please take time to discuss this topic, I think it's useful to us all, especially, who is going to sit writing test.

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?
Parents are the best teachers? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer

Here we go:

Parents, undoubtly can teach and bring their children up as a duty. Some people think that parents in their parenthood, can teach their children better than teachers. Others may argue that parents would not fulfill the job of teachers because of educational methods and knowledge. This essay will look at if parents can even do better than teachers when they teach their children.

On the one hand, parents would be better than teachers in educating their children for several reasons. Firstly, children may strongly believe or listen to their parents because of their nature relationship. For example, a little boy may naturally happily greet other people everytime he meets just because their parents teach him to do that. Secondly, it may be easier for parents to expect their children to obey. For instance, a father can tell his little daughter to get up earlier everyday which is not easy for teachers. Another reason is that children may find that they can only share their personal problems to their parents. The closer parents and children are, the easier parents can educate their children. As a result, parents are ideal people to educate their children.

On the other hand, teachers would do much better than parents in educating children because of many reasons. One reason is that teachers are trained for teaching, with their knowledge and teaching methods, they can help to educate children more effectively. For example, parents may easily find out a math solution for children, but they find it hard to explain. Whereas teachers, with their teaching methods, can find it easy to get children to find out the solution themselves. Moreover, teachers also know how to encourage children to learn more effectively, while parents probably do not. For instance, teachers always explain why children need to learn and tell them learning is an important duty. While parents often mistakenly encourage their children to do homework by a bar of chocolate, or a trip in the coming weekend. As a result, teachers may do better than parents in educating children.

In conclusion, educating children is not a simple duty. However, if parents and teachers can work together to fulfill, we have the right to believe that our new generations will be as expected.

I don't agree with that statement!

Marry should not be decided by others because each of person have diffrent situation in their life and these days people do not want to marry and get a children. For instance, Korean people don't like to have a babies becasue of the edcucation system fees and high price of everything for the child. So, Korean men having a big proportion of stress from that. They think, as Korean man, they have to own a house and car and so on before the marrige which is harsh for every body in the world. As you know people like to marry earlier becasue the love, 'love' is the biggest power in the world I think.

As family become better and better, and become best. The one country future will be bright and stronger. At the age 22, people supposed to attending university or college or working. Think about this, if you have a baby and going to school at the same time. You need to listen what proffesors saying and write down, but becasue of the taking care of the baby you will miss that easily. Husband need to work neither wife. This harsh time willl not concern as marriage at 22.
