Вербицкая М.В.

Вербицкая М.В.

Comment on the following statement:

     It's important for high school students to study compulsory subjects, even if they don't see any need for them in the near future.

What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Write 200-250 words.
Use the following plan:
—    make an introduction (state the problem)
—    express your personal opinion and give 2-3 reasons for your opinion
—    express an opposing opinion and give 1-2 reasons for this opposing opinion
- explain why you don't agree with the opposing opinion
—    make a conclusion restating your position

     Some students think that subjects as mathematics, physics and others that are compulsory have to be studied only by those who are going to study them further in colleges whereas others say that they are a part of just an educated and cultured person.

     It’s a dilemma for many students. As they get to study subjects they hardly ever use in their near future life. So many see it as a problem whereas others don’t.

     In my opinion, there are many subjects that help develop the analytical ability of students. Besides, studying subjects they like, they also tend to develop an informational view of other facets of life and subjects that they otherwise wouldn’t relate to. Many careers are not directly linked to these subjects, but studying them help and support a better understanding of the world. That’s why I don’t oppose studying them.

     Studying vocational subjects helps in acquiring useful knowledge that is suitable to near future and work. On the other hand, a student may spend a lot of time studying those subjects that may have no use for his future. Due to this reason, I’m not too keen to study subjects that are not helpful in my near future.

     For the overall mental growth of a student, supportive subjects play a role in a student’s life. Even if they don’t directly help him in his near future, they do help him develop a wider knowledge base. And yet, I wouldn’t recommend including too many such subjects to save time.
