1. We are becoming overwhelmingly dependent on computers. Is this dependence on computers a good
thing or should we be more suspicious of their benefits? Give arguments and examples to support
I totally agree with this! It is very bad for those who forget to do anything else then to play pc games. The kids and the grown up people spend a lot of time in front of the pc playing games.
The biggest problem is that children become more and more addicted to pc and internet and we should expect that in the future we won't see any children outside playing together. But let's hope that the world will not change so much and in the near future we will still see children playing with balls or other games, and not in front of the pc.
Before I met the internet and the pc it all was so simple, but now I can't imagine my life without them. And I think that it's a bad thing because they make my life boring and I'm addicted to them which is very irritating . Internet is the greatest thing for those who invented it, but for others is something that changes the order of everything in their life .Parents who buy pc's to their children should be very careful and make with their children a schedule when they can work at the pc . The most important thing is that the schedule shouldn't change later !
The worst thing that internet brings is that since it appeared , books and newspapers tragically became less and less used. The authors have a very hard time trying to sale their creations, and children started to forget about reading old but good books. And of course if you would ask a child who plays a lot on the pc, about a very famous but old author he won't know anything about him unless he studied him at school. This I must say it is a very bad thing and it's growing, just like the internet but in the other way.
Do you agree with the idea that children should be raised by their grandparents? Why yes/no?
During the past decade, several studies have been published that investigated the social, emotional, and physical functioning of grandparen 727y2413h ts raising their grandchildren. Research suggests grandparents in these families experience high levels of stress and psychosocial difficulty. In addition, the available data suggest children raised by their grandparents often encounter behavioral, emotional, and academic problems at school. The problems they experience indicate these children require intervention assistance from psychologists, school counselors, and other school professionals. This paper provides a brief report of the phenomenon, particularly as it relates to the grandchildren's school-related functioning. Practical and theory-based interventions are described to improve the educational and developmental outcomes of these grandchildren.
the past decade, several studies have been published that investigated the
social, emotional, and physical functioning of grandparen 727y2413h ts raising their
grandchildren (cf. Cox, 2003; Emick & Hayslip, 1999; Hayslip et al., 1998;
Kropf & Burnette, 2003). Not until recently have scholars addressed the
behaviors and school-related functioning of grandchildren in these families
Grandparents who raise their grandchildren can provide a loving, familial home environment that is more positive than a foster care or other such governmental arrangement. Nonetheless, raising children is difficult for grandparents during what should be their golden years. Most grandparents do not bargain on having children to raise when they should be enjoying a time of peace and quiet. It seems that no matter how the grandchildren behave, they impact the well-being of their grandparents, for better or worse, simple because of their presence (Harrison et al, 2000). Grandparents who raise their grandchildren also significantly affect the educational functioning, developmental outcomes, and well-being of their grandchildren (Edwards, 2003; Harrison et al.). Few publications offer practical and theory-based interventions to help these families. In this article we review much of the available data and add to the database relative to these new family relationships. We focus on the social, emotional, behavioral, and school functioning of children raised by their grandparents. Practical, theory-based interventions are described to assist these families and improve the children's school-related functioning.

An Alternate Family Structure
numbers of grandparents who become surrogate parents to their grandchildren are
increasing substantially (Fuller-Thomson & Minkler, 2000). According to the
Grandparents who assume the surrogate parenting role often do so as a result of the death of their adult children, their children's divorce, unemployment, and teenage premarital childbearing. Parental deaths as a result of violence and AIDS particularly contribute to the increase in these alternate families. Additionally, physical and emotional child abuse as...
Damage of the environment is an inevitable consequence of worldwide improvements in the standard
of living. Discuss.
Granted, advanced technologies improved our living. However, our economic growth is still undoubtly linked to the main causes of environmental damage: first, rising energy and resources consumption and, second, increasing levels of solid waste and air pollution. The former is due to the big industrial companies' competition in the market and it leads to a shortage of the raw materials, especially oil and coal, which are non-renewable resources. The latter can be attributed directly to the rapidly increasing number of private cars in use. Together with the industrial burning of fossil fuels like oil, coal and gas for energy, they release Carbon Dioxide(CO2) which causes global warming, disruption in the ozone layer and acid rain that destroys plant and animal life. At last, but not the least, waste and residual substances poison water and land environments. Therefore, alternative renewable sources of energy (such as wind, solar and geothermal power) and recycling of the waste are ultimately the only real ways to stop this environmental crisis.
Some people prefer to live in a small town. Others prefer to live in a big city. Which place would you
prefer to live in? Use specific reasons and details to support your answer.
I grew up in a small town and then moved to a big city, so I have experienced the good and bad sides of both. I never thought that I would like living in a big city, but I was wrong. After ten years of living in one, I can't imagine ever living in a small town again.
Small towns and big cities both have some problems in terms of transportation. In a small town, you have to own a car to ensure a comfortable living .you can't get around without one because there isn't any kind of public transportation. Big cities generally have heavy traffic and expensive parking, but there you have a choice of taking public transportation. It's not free, but it's often cheaper than driving when you consider gas and time, especially if you don't have a car, you're better off in the city.
I love the excitement of big cities. Small towns have a slow pace. Large cities mean you have to adapt to a variety of situations, like finding a new route to work or trving a new restaurant. I enjoy that challenge very much. Another part of the excitement of city living is the variety of cultural activities available. There is a wild assortment of theatre music and dance performances available in big cities. These things are rare in small ones.
final thing I think about large cities is the diversity of the people. the
Of course, security is a concern, and that one area where small towns are superior to big cities. Still, I would rather be a bit more cautions and live in a large city than to feel secure but bored.
How do movies or television influence people's behaviour? Use reasons and specific examples to
support your answer.
I strongly believe that movies and television have a great influence in people's behaviour. It is an undeniable fact that most people in the world have access to either a televison or a cinema theatre and do make use of them at a regular basis.Some of the ways in which such media can affect people are stated below.
Firstly, The main group of people who are attracted to the television and movies are the the teenagers.This is the group that is most susceptible to change.They often try to emulate what they see on screen and in order to be a hero themselves.It is not uncommon to see young people try to mimic the stunts and heroic deeds performed by their idols or role-models on screens.Sometimes, this will have a deleterious effect as young people try to display some violent and aggressive behaviour that they visualize in the screen.
Secondly, Each country or region has its own culture and it is necessary to preserve them in order to exhibit cultural diversity to the future generations.There are a lot of programs and scenes that are being broadcasted in televisions and movies that might not confirm to the mindset of the local society.But sometimes young people get influenced by these scenes.They get a false impression that they too should live their life the way people live in foreign movies.They tend to change themseves according to what they see.This might destroy the native practces and customs which is highly undesired.
Lastly, Some of the programs that appear in movies and televisions contain a lot of adult content which is inappropriate for young children.Some of these programs are broadcasted without appropriate warnings.This might pose a threat to the children.They might get attracted to such inappropriate material thereby indulge themselves in wrong practices.
These are some of the ways in which people's behaviour can be afftected by mass media such as television and movies.So there is a need to look into this matter and to obtain a suitable solutions to such problems.

Is it better to enjoy your money when you earn it or is it better to save your money for some time in the
future? Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.
Many people spend all of their money when they earn it wastefully, but other like to save their money for the future. In my opinion, It's good to enjoy a small amount of money when you earn it and save a larger amount of money for the future.
When people earn money, they should use a small amount of it to do what they want. They can spend money for entertainment, buy a small thing for themselves, go camping with their friends, have a party with their family..... But they must to pay attention not to spend too much.
In addition, doing what people want can help them relax absolutely, give them energy and inspiration to do their job better. Try giving yourself a gift when you earn money, I'm sure that it's very interesting!
Otherwise, if you don't enjoy your money when you earn it, you will live a dull life. Your only duty is go to work and earn money, so bored! It's good to budget money for necessities as clothing, rent and for the fun things as vacations, parties, relaxation....
Besides,people need save their money for several reasons. First, saving money 'll help them buy value things, which they have expected for a long time, for example a car, a new house, a jewelry.....
Moreover,with your earnings, if you are ill or lose your job,you will have money to manage your life.When you are old and your children still go to school,you can pay school fees for them. And you even lend your friends money when they are in trouble.People don't save money for the future ,they could have problems.So you had better send your money to the bank you believe in.
To conclude, people should spend their money wisely.They shouldn't neither waste too much money for unworthy things nor too miserly in spending money. The larger earnings should be saved for the future, but the small one should be enjoyed.
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Grades (marks) encourage students to learn.
Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.
Whether grades could encourage students to learn has been argued for a while. There are varity of arguments among students and teachers. It is a important topic because it concerns with the method how we educate effectively our students. From my experience, I agree with the idea that grades encourage students to learn.
It has been argued that marks could make some students stressful,
especially for the students with poor grades. However, as research on the education indicated that grades could let students clearly understand their performance and let them know their advantage and disadvantage. For example, without grades, how could students know what talent they really have? Grades is the indicator of students' ability to master the knowledge.
Moreover, the teacher can clearly master the status of each student study through grades. Every one had talent, but no one had all the talent. By grades, the teacher can understand ach student's talent. For instance, some students may be good at logic thinking, such as mathmatics, physics; the others may like atheletic, such as baseball, tennis. By grades, the teacher can give different advice to different student.
Furthermore, only through grades can parents understand how their child's performance in the study. For example, when I had a poor performance in some courses, my parents always helped me figure out the reason and help me go through it. Each time I went through this difficulty, I had more confidence on my study.
In conclusion, grades can encourge students to learn. It can help students realize their talents and find out their disadvantages. Without grades, how could a student clearly understand themselves?
If you could go back to some time and place in the past, when and where would you go? Why? Use
specific reasons and details to support your choice.
Some people enjoy their modern life and can not imagine that they can live in an older life. While others believe that the living in the past would be more suitable for them. As for me, for sure i will choose to live in the past ,twenty years ago in my chidhood, and in my primary school. I have three reasons to proof my choice, and they are ;sent back to that time, I would restor my old memories, have no resposibilities, live with my late grandfather.
There is no doubt that, the childhood is the age of the beautiful innocence. What a kid have deeply in his heart is clearly expressed on his face. So that I would not have to hide my real emotions. Moreover I would have the right to laugh or to cry at any time and in any place. In additon to , i would have all my sweet memories with my first experiences. There is also the old friends i shared with them alot of unforgetable days . Also, i was more linked to my parents and my brothers as i was spending much more time with them .
Furthermore, in that time, i would not have to think about resposibilities or remember any duties. that means i would not have my daily routine that i am living now . Besides i would not have to worry about the money and my expenses. In fact i would think only in joy and having fun with my peers.In another words ,i would be relaxed and forget the stress life . Inspite of, when we were younger, we were always wishing to become older,but when you grow up, you will know that , it was your best days.
Also if i have the chance to do that, I could live with my grandfather. Because of his kindness I loved him alot. Not only he was my grandfather but also he was my best friend. As he learned me alot and gave me my first lessons in the life. Moreover i cann't forget till now our early trips and going to fishing in the sunny days. For all that i wish he could be with me all my life ,indeed, we was the warm corner in my life.
In a nut shell, going back to the past is a very good idea. May be some people prefer their modern life with all its advatages for them. However, in my opinion, would benefit more from the earlier life .Because that was all my sweet days , lack of responsibilities and duties and finally living with my lovely grandfather.

Speak about the importance of friendship in one's life. You may give yourself as an example.
A TRUE friend is someone we treasure , someone we turn to when we feel down and someone who understand us better than anyone can. A TRUE friend is our shoulder when we cry, someone who catches our tears, and someone we lean on. A TRUE friend holds you up when you are weak, always there through thick and thin, never hesitates to help you with all your problems, and always say ILL BE THERE even if you're miles apart..
Speak about a person or personality you admire most. Give reasons for your choice.
The person I admire the most is my mother, MARIA. What I admire about my mother is that she helps me with all my problems at school and other places. If my friends and I had an argument at school, I would tell my mom and she would help me solve it. If I was having trouble with school things, she would help me with them. I also admire my mother because she is always busy doing things for me and my brothers and spends a lot of her time doing things for my school. I also love her dinners and I think she makes the best lemon bars and lemon cakes. I think my mom is the best mom ever!
Speak about the negative aspects of using the Internet. Give arguments and examples to support your
The internet is literally one of the greatest inventions of this century and possibly of the entire history of mankind. The unprecedented access to information and the ease of communication has literally changed our lives forever on multiple levels. This includes how we do our work, how we communicate and how we conduct ourselves in our spare time. The amount of Torah resources online is quite incredible, allowing one to have a virtual Bait Medrash at one's finger tips 24/7. I could go on forever at the great advantages of the internet and how it is greatly improved our lives. However that is not the purpose of the post. It it not my attention to come across as a "fanatic" or "prude", but I feel that these issues are relevant and real and should be discussed.
The purpose of this post is to talk about the negative aspects of the internet, how these aspects have effected our lives and what possible measures can be implemented to avoid / counteract them. Obviously as mentioned before this post is going to be one of extremes, painting things in terms of black and white, good and bad, right and wrong. While we all know that life isn't in terms of black and white, but rather many shades of grey, I feel my points will best be conveyed by taking this approach.
- one of the major disadvantages of the Internet is the lack of supervision of the content;
- quite innocently the internet surfer can bring up information that does not refer to the topic they are looking for, or someone can send them images and messages that are not appropriate;
- an internet surfer may accidentally and unwillingly form "friendships" with strangers;
- the internet surfers may become victims of cyberbullying ( use of online technology to harass or intimidate another person );
- the internet surfers may be subjected to advertising pressures ( designed to put pressure on them to purchase goods on line );
- the internet surfers can take all the information available on line as correct, even though many times it can be incorrect and inaccurate;
- the internet surfers may endanger their health through excessive use of the internet;
Speak about your favourite means of transport. Give arguments and examples to sustain your opinion.
Nowadays we can choose one means of transportation from many kinds of tools, such as buses, trains, ships and planes. However, my favorite one is just by train. Whenever I want to go outside for a travel, my beloved choice is going by train.
There're two main reasons why I choose the train. First, traveling by train offers me a valuable chance to encounter new friends. During the long way to the destination, I have enough time to talk with strangers sitting beside me. It will add a piece of joyful memory to my trip. Second, traveling by train is also a cheaper choice when compared with other means of transportation. As a student, it is especially proper for me to travel by train because I can buy a ticket suitable for students, only half price of a normal ticket. In this way, traveling by train can help me save much money.
In conclusion, traveling by train may not only make me have a happy chat with other people but also help me save a lot of money. Therefore, I'd like to travel by train instead of other means of transportation.
Speak about your favourite holiday and the traditions related to it. Give arguments and examples to
support your ideas.
The Christmas season is a time for celebrating the gift of Jesus Christ, reaching out to others, and sharing traditions with loved ones. Family time at Christmas can create some of life's most precious memories! Even simple activities can carry a lot of meaning and greatly impact the lives of your children.
Here ATI staff from across the country share the traditions and holiday ideas that have meant a lot to their families, encouraging you to plan special times for your family and to keep Christ the central focus of your holiday celebrations.
Probably my favorite Christmas tradition growing up was doing Advent together as a family the four weeks prior to December 25. Each Sunday we gathered around the table and lit a candle in the Advent wreath-one candle for each week, until all the candles were lit.
One of my favorite holiday traditions is the decorating of the Christmas tree. Each year, we enjoy hot apple cider and molasses cookies as we decorate. With Christmas music playing in the background, we all hang our own ornaments on the tree. Our tree has never had one particular theme, except maybe 'hodgepodge'! Yet, I think it's one of the most beautiful trees of all, with stories and memories tucked into every branch
love Christmas! I love the smells of balsam, the sounds of Christmas hymns, and-most of all-the faces of friends and family! It is one of the most wonderful times of the year.
Speak about the things you do to have a healthy life. Give arguments and examples to sustain your

- I do physical exercise daily ( but this is closely connected to one's diet; if you do not eat enough or properly, you can't do physical exercise );
- I have a restful sleep ( for this is closely connected to my body's regular active work of the day );
- I tend to have the order of my life's priorities clear in my mind and arrange it and rearrange it whenever it gets turned down;
- my life's priorities are good health, good work, and good fun.
Speak about the importance of being good - mannered in one's life.
Any educated person must learn and respect the good manners in society and in their families. Living together is difficult if the good manners are not present and we can see that every day at school, in the street and even at home. RESPECT ME TO RESPECT YOU - is something that everybody must do. The good manners still exist for most of the people but some young people consider them out of fashion and have no respect for anything or for anyboby. For example not all the students always respect their teachers or their own parents
Speak about the way in which fashion influences one's personality. Give arguments and examples to
sustain your ideas.
The way we dress is a 'tell, tell' sign about our personality; having said this, body language as well as our appearance all coincide together. All three are very important elements in which tells others a little about us. If a person is wearing jeans and a tee shirt, this tells us they are laid back and maybe not looking to get into anything today. On the other hand, if we see some one in a three piece suit, this tell us the person is going to work and maybe they may have an important job some where.
If we see a girl dressed skimpy, than this tells us she easy and a free willed person.
Long hair on men use to mean they were pot heads.
I could go on and on.
They way we dress leads people to assumption, in which they become judgmental and put us in to a category or some type of social placement.
Speak about your favourite actor / actress. Motivate your choice.
My favorite actress is Angelina Jolie because she is not only beautiful but also smart and talented. She started her career very young and she didn't rely on her father's help but on her own talent. She comes from a family of artist, her father is a famous actor and her mother was a Trench model. Her big break was the Bone Collector where she started along with Denzel Washington.
She was also the star of the series based on a computer game The Tomb Raider. When she filmed Mr. and Mrs Smith she met Brad Pitt. Eventually they got married being problably the most famous couple in the world. I don't like her only because she's a good actress but also because she's understanding with the less fortunate people of the world.
She's a U.M Ambassador in the third world. She adopted two children of another race but this doesn't stop her to love them like they are her own.
Speak about a day in your life when something happened and changed your life.

about one year ago . I had recently moved in my new

car purchase I'd ever made . I spotted a classified ad
in the paper for a 1992 Bmw in mint condition - like new ,
and that was because his engine has been changed recently . I responded to the

that the man and his family were running a large-scale used-car scam and

the police with my findings. Four long years later, I received a letter from

Starting from an early age up to the end of our lives, every one dreams to become a famous person. It's true that there is a lot of hard work, luck and amny responsibilities involved, but still, it's impossible not to consider all the advantages that the celebrity enjoys.
Just imagine yourself in such a position.... everybody knows you , loves you and even worships you ! You are in the eyes and heart of the media all the time, everybody is watching you. Think about all those fan-clubs full of people eager to know everything about you, eager to predict and comment on your actions. Every single statement you make is seen as a new law, any style you may adopt projects you in the field of fashion settlers. Step by step you have become a role model for them, Children wish to be like you when they grow up, teen-agers tend to imitate you and adults admire your atitude. Isn't that great ?
Apart from that, your travel all over the world and you can see even the remotest corners of this planet, and people may have a contact with them through your eyes. I, for one, would be honored to know this and accomplish the wishes of so many people who cannot otherwise make this dream come true. This way, they would travel with me trough the cameras, following me and have a glimpse of the beauty abroad
It is said that celebrities own a lot of money and enjoys luxury. And this is true. They are able to fulfill all their dreams and other people's wishes, equallt. Most of them are known ti be charitable and helping the poor, the sick, the unfortunate. I think that this is what really makes you feel great and important ... showing your feelings and compassion to those who really need it. Moreover, they will surely appreciate it a lot and turn you into a kind of hero .... their hero. And now, not only that you feel great by doing this, but also people will love you even more.
All this being said, I cannot stop thinking about all the advantages Ihave mentioned above and dreaming to be such a person, even for one day, or at least, half of it!
Despite some critical opinions, sport is believed to bring out the best in us. Speak about the benefits of
It is said that sport is the way in which your body can be kept healthy and full of life. Making sport not only puts your muscles in movement, but also releases yourself from a big quantity of stress. It is good at least once a day to have time to do sport. It's not neccessary to go to a gym, you can just go for a ride with your bike or jogging. In this way you can make two things at the same time and that is to combine useful things with pleasure.It's not a shame to go to a gym and have a few extra kilos.All can be solved through will and of course sport. Another efficient method is a diet that must be respected. At the first sight you say "It's too much to handle", but I can say "No" to you. How? Proper food is the key word. What does this mean? The meal hours must be respected and the food must consist of vegetables and fruits because these are rich in vitamins. In conclusion, if you want to be healthy, you have to eat properly and none of the less make a little sport.
- people ( children, youngsters, and adults ) who participate in organized sports do better in work or school, have better interpersonal skills, and are team oriented, and generally healthier;
- participation in sports provide opportunities for leadership and socialization, as well as the development of skills for success and failure;
- sports and games teach us how rules work, how rules keep order, that the individual must accept the rules for the good of the group, and that rules involve consideration of the rights of others;
- sports teach competition, which is very important in a world where entering competition is very important;
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement: One has more opportunities for selfdevelopment

Pets are sort of children, you can take care of. In return, you get sort of childish love.

* Manner: things will be presented in a way that enables others to understand and with aligned non-verbal language.
Do you think a disability of some kind makes a person more determined to succeed? Give arguments
to support your ideas.
Not really...no. It all depends on the person who has a disability. If he is willing to succeed...he will succeed despite his "problems". It's about desire of doing what you want, like other " normal" people do. A person with disability isn't rejected when he shows to the world that he can realise the same things like others. A person is rejected when he seats in a corner of a street, or a grocery store asking for money because he has difficulties in working.That's not true. Everybody can work in a way or another.

Comment on the following statement: Where there's a will there's a way. Bring arguments and
examples to sustain your ideas.
I totally agree with this statement.If you want to do something, to realize a good thing for humanity, nobody can't stop you. For example: Robert Slavin wanted to do something for our children, he wanted to create schools in which all children, no matter what's their socioeconomic status or race, learn at high levels. Everybody doubt him, they didn't thought that this is possible. But Slavin did his best and proved his best and created these schools . So it's true...where there's a will there's a way...
this statement is about becoming someone in life, accomplishing your dream. i agree with this idea , because you should have a will all the time , to succed, to find the right way.
firstly, if you want to resolv something, to do what you want with your lifeyou need a will. that sustains you, your friends encourage you and you will find the path.
secondly, if you are an ambitious person you will fight in any situation for what you want, to fulfill your dreams; you only have to really want to do something and you'll accomplish it.
some people say that if you are a lucky person you will find your road anyway! you only should be an intelligent and lucky man or waman.
in conclusion, you should know that it is necesarry for you to have a will, you should have a goal in life and always try to reach it.
