Here are my answers to questions 2 and 3 from last week's lesson:
2) Do you think it's better to rent or to buy a place to live in?
I think it’s better to buy your own home if you can afford to do that. Buying your own home is a better investment in the long term, because you can sell the home and perhaps even make a profit on it. The alternative is to pay rent to a landlord who can ask you to leave at any moment.
3) Do you agree that there is a right age for young adults to stop living with their parents?
I’m not sure what the ‘right’ age would be, but I do agree with the principle that young adults should try to live alone if they can. For some people, the right age is when they get their first full-time jobs and can afford to pay rent, and for others it's when they start university and move into a hall of residence with other students. This was what happened in my case; I moved out of the family home at age 18 when I started university.
Let's look at how I structured the above answers.
Three sentences: 1) answer 2) explain 3) alternative
Three sentences: 1) answer 2) explain 3) personal example
As usual, I try to use the technique shown in this lesson to build longer answers.
