Will computer take over the world-version 3
The computer is one of the most useful machines ever invented. It does any kind of work including hard work which requires accuracy and strength. Although the computer itself is unable, for example, to put together the parts of a car, this task is performed by a robot, controlled by a computer. These machines are everywhere – in schools, television, factories, at home. There is not a single office without a computer. In one of these gadgets we store information which will otherwise be written on hundreds and even thousands of books. But it’s not only the information. By pressing one or two computer keys one can immediately enter some international computer network or reach a far away foreign country. The computers arrange dates, sell commodities, spread information and operate machines.
More and more people decide to become programmers or operators. I think even now computer start overtaking our world. We can see their importance quite easy when a computer virus infiltrates the network. When hundreds of the users cannot work properly it immediately brings destruction – hospitals, airports even the smallest companies would be thrown into confusion and panic. People’s lives depend completely on these calculating machines.
There is another negative effect of the computers – the computer games. Not only children but adults too stare for hours at the flashing screen and become prisoners of the new obsession. But every cloud has a silver lining – the positive aspect of the computer cannot be denied. This apparatus makes everything easier and is necessary part of human progress – spaceflights for example, the great new movie technologies. That’s why, I think the role of the computers will increase greatly in the next few years.
Sports at College – Model CAE Proposal
The survey, conducted among students, identified some of the reasons for the reduced number of people doing sports at college. The proposal outlines problems and makes recommendations for solutions.
According to the students, who took part in the research, the main problem is the poor condition of the sports facilities in the college. Not only are they insufficient but they are also old and even dangerous. Another issue is that college students don’t feel motivated to do any sports. Instead of practising volleyball, basketball, etc. they prefer going to a club or playing, computer games. And last but not least, the training times for work-outs are not convenient for most of the students.
A renovation of the sports centre would attract more students and encourage them to take up sports. The new sports facilities will make practising much more pleasant.
Organising more spots events like basketball or volleyball matches, every month with a prize for the winner would motivate more people to take part in sports activities.
Reconsideration of the days fixed for practising would be a solution to one of the problems, too. In the weekend, more people would be able to attend the sports centre and do sports.
If the above recommendations are implemented, I believe there would be a significant rise in the number of students taking part in sports activities at the college.
Do we really need computer games II variant
Have you ever wondered whether computer games are a waste of time and money, or just a source of entertainment? If you still have any doubts on the negative aspects related to playing in the “virtual reality” the following essay may bring about changing your mind.
Nowadays, a vast majority of adults consider computer games ridiculous and useless. Moreover, researchers even claim that these games can easily damage children’s brains, especially when they are still too young. The most common opinion, however, is that computer games are a complete waste of both time and money. As for this statement, the people, who agree with it, may have their own reasons to do so. For example, there are hardly any parents who are happy with their children spending so much time at the PC. At present, there are lots of spoiled kids whose one and only source of amusement is exactly these games. The negative sides of this is the fact that, as these children grew up they have become addicted to playing on the computer, which may lead to serious health problems later.
So there are certainly disadvantages that come with pc games, but what about the other side of the coin?
I’ll never forget my childhood – the period I used to spend playing on the computer. Due to this fact, personally, I can understand both children’s and their parents’ attitude to the topic.
So what’s the answer? On balance, I think using computers for playing games by the youngsters should be reduced to some extent as we all want to provide a healthy way of living for the kids.
Note: very few positive aspects!

In your English class you have been talking about endangered species, animals or plants that will likely become extinct. Your English teacher has asked you to write an essay.
Write an essay using all the notes and give reasons for your point of view.
Around the world many wildlife species are in danger of extinction. How can we protect endangered animals?
- hunting wild animals
- . .......(your own idea)
These days even more and more animals and plants are becoming extinct. That means they must be protected in order to maintain the number of animals or plants, which are threatened by extinction.
The real question is how to protect them. For example, pollution is a huge threat to every single animal or plant. Pollution is the reason for global warming, which causes the destruction of many animals' habitat. For example, the icy parts in the north and south are melting very slowly, which puts penguins and polar bears in danger. In order to prevent that people shouldn't throw away junk in the nature and should start recycling more.
Pollution is not the only reason for the extinction of animals. Unfortunately, many wild animals are being hunted nowadays. This is mainly because of their beautiful fur, which is "perfect" for making coats. In order to help many people have decided not to wear leather or fur at all.
Every year dozens of forests are being destroyed by people who need to open more place for construction. If they want to save animals from extinction, they first have to reduce the construction, which will save a lot of forests and therefore – animals's habitat. (!!!)
All these problems have solutions. Animals and plants are very important for our planet and, since we are the ones who destroy them, it is up to us to do the right thing and protect them.
Notes !!! - You are supposed to make only one suggestion.
Formal Letter to the Editor (Model Answer)
I am writing in response to an article you published in your newspaper. There were several aspects the “Medieval Society” fair you misdescribed and, since I helped out on the committee, I’d like to make some corrections.
First of all, I think that this year’s “Medieval Society” fair was a failure, given the number of visitors and the fact that the parking place was full of cars and there was no space for everyone.
Secondly, the archery display was actually pretty interesting and appealing to the visitors and especially the kids, who care absolutely fascinated by it.
Thirdly, you point out that the cookery demonstrations were unattended. In fact, there was again not enough space for everyone to see them.
Last but not least, you failed to describe the event as a whole and you have said that the medieval dancing display wasn’t impressive. Well, the truth is that, according to our visitors, it was not only lovely but also really professional. Some of them also express regret about not having the opportunity to attend the event since it was full of people and there was no place for them.
To sum up, I’d like to say that the event went brilliantly and everybody loved it. Therefore, I would ask you to rewrite your article about the “Medieval Society” fair since you presented it untruly in your previous article.
