Last week I asked you to think about the question below. I asked what your real opinion would be, and whether a different opinion might be easier to write about.
Sports programmes are hugely popular on television nowadays. But some people argue that these programmes are to blame for the poor health of many young people who prefer to watch rather than partake in physical activity. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this view?
Personally, my real opinion is that I completely disagree. I don't think that sports programmes are responsible for any health problems.
However, it might be easier to say that we "agree to a certain extent" (partly agree). This would allow us to argue that too much sport on TV may be partly to blame, but that other factors may be equally or even more important.
In your exam, I recommend noting down some ideas before you decide what your opinion is. Look at your ideas, and see whether they suggest a one-sided answer or a balanced answer.
Try writing two different introduction paragraphs - one for my real opinion, and one for the easier opinion above.
