"The Internet has as many disadvantages as it does advantages". To what extent do you agree with this statement?

It's true that using Internet brings many advantages. While I accept this, I would argue that the Internet also bring disadvantages as advantages.

First of all, let's talk about advantages. The Internet gives people access to news and information quickly through articles, videos, images, livestreams, etc... so that we don't miss any new things. Secondly, there're so many popular social networking sites such as: Pinterest, Instagram, Zalo - places where we're given opportunities to keep contact with people, make new friends as well as share memories and knowledge to everyone. On the other hand, some work tools are used with the Internet to meet people's demand to store data and solve works. Lastly, with just some clicks, people can easily go shopping without going outside and spending much time on purchasing.

Apart from the practical benefits expressed above, the Internet exists some drawbacks. Information and news sometimes are inexact and unselective as well. Although having manipulated many impactful solutions to control types of subjects, social networking sites still can't handle completely. The information security can be not private enough. Some people who comments on social format aren't thoughtful. They take out their dirty words and affect seriously to kids. They express their wrongful recognitions so that impact on children's awareness. Not only children, they can be anyone whose recognition is not subtle enough to differentiate right or wrong. Social networking operated by the Internet might be addictive to teenagers and distract them from their schoolwork. Spending time communicating with people on the Internet are not as well as meeting and talking directly for sure, but not everybody can receipt it because they're addicted about virtual communicating.

In conclusion, the Internet brings both advantages and disadvantages depending on how people use it.

It's (Do not use contractions in formal writing.) true that (Avoid dummy-it clauses, especially "it is true that.." Would you write something that is false or not true?) using Internet brings many advantages. While I accept this, I would argue that the Internet also bring disadvantages as advantages.

wonhayoungTo what extent do you agree with this statement?

That is the essay prompt. Answer the essay prompt in the first paragraph. Also, it is not a very informative statement "there are both advantages and disadvantages". Nearly everything has two sides.

You need to give an answer with an adverb of extent.

It is good to know a good handful of adverbs of extent because this is a very common prompt in IELTS Task 2 essays.

Complete agreement / disagreement:
------------

completely
fully
totally
wholeheartedly
unreservedly
with no reservations
without reservation
unequivocally
unquestionably
with no hesitation
unconditionally

Partial agreement / disagreement:
----------------

somewhat
partially
partly
to some extent / to a limited extent / to a point
with (some / certain / a few) reservations
conditionally

Then your body paragraphs need to support your choice.

For example:

Thesis statement:

I completely disagree. Although there are a few minor disadvantages, they can easily be avoided.

Paragraph 1: Give one reason for your choice.

Paragraph 2: Give the second main reason for your choice.

Develop both paragraphs with examples.
