Клековкина Е., Манн
Comment on the following statement:
| Many teenagers enjoy playing computer games. Some people, however, believe that teenagers should spend their free time doing more physical activities.
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that instead of playing computer games teenagers should spend their free time on physical activities, whereas others do not agree. They believe that computer games are not bad at all.
I think that there is nothing wrong with playing computer games. First of all, some of them are educational and interactive . Pupils can learn a lot of new information just playing computer games. Secondly, modern games are a lot of fun as well as relaxing and I would say even therapeutic. Nowadays, school boys and girls have plenty of homework and they need some quality time to relax.
At the same time there are people who believe that teenagers should spend more time doing physical activities. They think that playing computer games is nothing but a waste of time and it is far more important for them to develop physically.
Actually, I cannot agree with the opinion mentioned above for a few reasons. I consider playing computer games is not a bad thing in itself. People just need to learn to not over do it. If a person is disciplined, they can do both: play computer games with no harm to their health and do physical activities. It does not have to be all one and not the other.
In conclusion, I would like to say that computer games have become a part of modern people's lives. A lot of educational programs have been integrated in those games and playing them has become more than just entertainment. Nevertheless, teens should make sure those games do not become their lives. Yet, I still support the idea of playing computer games since I see more pros in it than cons.
Some people say that computer games are one of the best ways of spending free time, whereas others do not agree with them. They believe that it is better to do sports.
Personally, I think that physical activities are better and more useful. First of all, sport exercises help people be in good shape. Those who always do sport activities at school are usually slim and fit. Second, regular sport activity develops good skills like attentiveness and builds up one's character. When students start playing sport games at school their marks improve. There is also have a saying, “A good spirit dwells in a healthy body”.
At the same time there are people who prefer computer games. They are sure that those games train memory and reflexes. They are also relaxing and therapeutic as well as educational.
As the matter of fact these people have a point. Some games might be useful. However, playing computer games can damage your eyes, while sport exercises cannot do any harm, if you do them properly with a coach or trainer.
In conclusion, I would like to say that there are a lot of ways to spend your free time. Physical exercises strengthen one's health and discipline their lives. Thus, I strongly believe that physical activities are more beneficial for young generation.
In conclusion, I would like to say that there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight it might seem that physical activity is not very important but in actual fact physical exercises strengthen one’s health and discipline their lives. Thus, I strongly believet hat physical activities are more beneficial for young generation than playing computer games.
