Do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages?
而如果选择坏处多，那么好处的选择就要格外注意，即不能使好处看起来更为重要。最好这种观点带来的好处是可以通过其它方式取得的。这样一来，它的坏处就显得非常重要。比如，“Do the advantages of watching TV outweigh its disadvantages?” 如果考生选择看电视坏处比较多，那么它的好处最好不要是开阔人们的视野、提升人们在相关领域的兴趣，因为这样的好处是人们渴望得到的。我们可以选择看电视能够让人们放松，但由于放松的方式有很多，这样看电视的好处就被弱化了。
In most countries, with the widespread of the use of Internet, people have more freedom to choose to work and study at home instead of travelling to work or college. Do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages?
Thanks to the technical development, especially the appearance of Internet, increasing number of people prefer to work and study at home, rather than traveling to work or college. Two benefits brought by working or studying at home convince me to strongly insist that its merits do outweigh its drawbacks.
To begin with, working and studying at home is able to save our time and makes our life more convenient. It is not uncommon phenomenon that people are waiting for the bus or subway in a long queue and not a few people are late for work or class due to the traffic jam. So, if we can choose to work and study at home, it is not necessary for us to take hours on the way to companies and schools. Besides, working and studying at home gives us a more flexible timetable. We do not have to wake up at 6 o’clock in the morning to arrive in the company on time. We are able to decide when we start and stop the work, based on our physical and psychological conditions. The same thing occurs to study as well. We will not see any students falling asleep in the class any more. Therefore, our working and studying efficiency will be highly improved.
What’s more, our family connection will be enhanced by working and studying at home. Resulting from the heavy social and living pressure, a lot of parents have to leave their children alone at home and go to work, which makes them spend little time with their children. That is the reason why many parents do not understand their kids very well. If those parents can work at home, they can handle their work and spend more time with their children at the same time. By doing this, parents can know more about their children and exchange emotions and ideas with each other. Then, distance among family members will be shortened and the family relationship could be strengthened.
On the other hand, working and studying at home blames for blocking people’s channel to communicate with others. It may possible lead people to feel isolated and lonely. However, I think we can avoid such consequence with suitable approaches. One solution to it is that people can actively take part in the party held by their classmates or colleagues. As another key, people can make a call to their friends to have a dinner and share each others’ experiences as well.
To my conclusion, those two benefits of working and studying at home are obvious and make us live more comfortable with flexible timetable and close personal relationship. And the so called limitation of doing that can be overcome by several methods. Therefore, I strongly believe that the advantages of working and studying at home are far more than the disadvantages of it.
