Some people believe that nowadays we have too many choices. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?

Having been through over thousands of years of formation and development, life of human beings has changed significantly with a more positive direction than ever. Basing on that fact, recently, there have been some individuals who believe that people have more and more choices in all aspects of life. Obviously, I completely agree with them. In this essay, I will express two points for the statement above, which are culture and education.

It can be said that, in the process of human development, culture is the field having the most significant changes. Positive cultural change plays a vital role in answering the question of whether people have more choices today. Specifically, Vietnam is a country which has a strongly diverse culture, however, in the past, that culture was totally tied and imposed. Children in a family do not have the right to choose their spouse, that choice is completely in the hands of their parents. Today, fortunately, that backward thought has been eliminated, which has contributed to creating stable and happiness marriages.

Besides, education is also an area of ​​great changes. Normally, people think that everyone has to go through a university environment, get prestigious degrees,... in order to succeed.. Nonetheless, nowadays, there are some individuals who prove that university is not the only way to success. After graduating from high school, many young people have decided to learn a trade instead of continuing to study general knowledge at university. Others are boldly starting a business with unique ideas. Thereby, we see that in the present life, people have many choices for themselves.

To sum up, in order to have the freedom of choice as present, people have had to make a lot of efforts in the past as well as in the present. Therefore, we need to appreciate each choice and make them more useful than ever.


Hi loigial,

This is not an easy topic to tackle, even though it appears to be simple enough. In fact, it is too broad. What is your target score in IELTS, and when are you planning to sit for the test?
