Bài viết mẫu IELTS – Moving away from family – IELTS Task 2: Society
Nowadays more people are choosing to live with friends or alone rather than with their families. This trend is likely to have a negative impact on communities. To what extend do you agree or disagree with this opinion?
In many countries, people of all ages choosing to live either alone or with friends and there is no doubt that this is having an effect on the communities that they live in.
Modern life means that many people live away from their families either because they are studying of because their circumstances have changed, such as getting divorced. Also people often have to travel away from their home town in order to get a job and, if they are not married, this means they live alone or share with friends. So whole towns and cities are changing because of this.
The negative effects of this are, firstly, on the environment as more houses and flats need to be build and this is a drain on resources. At the same time, a social consequence is that people are living in isolation or if they fall out with their flat mates they can be in a difficult situation. These people become distant from their families and, as often they just go to work and come home, they do not always participate in community life or help create a neihbourhood where everyone knows each other.
However, there are also positive effects of this way of living. Communities with a lot of single people or shared houses tend to have a lot of young people. Many of these young people go out more so more shops and leisure activities develop in the town and they can have a vibrant social life. This can make for a very dynamic and innovative community.
The change in the way people are living is inevitable and, in my view, the benefits far outweigh the disadvantages. Nevertheless, we will have to be careful that we do not produce communities with social problems caused by people feeling isolated.
