Comment on the following statement:
|There are more disadvantages than advantages in living in the city. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
In my opinion, living in the city has more advantages than disadvantages. First of all, cities are exposed to all modern technological inventions first. For example, all new gadgets come to the cities first and then appear in towns, villages and other remote places. Secondly, cities offer opportunities to visit different cultural events. For instance, one can go to theaters or attend lectures of famous writers or scientists. Moreover, cities have a wider variety of lifestyles and people who can share the same visions of life.
At the same time there are people who say that living in the countryside is better because its air is cleaner and there is less noise.
I do not agree with the opinion mentioned above. Nowadays there are a lot of parks and trees in cities. As for noise, one can be woken up by a rooster or a car that passes by.
In conclusion, I would like to say there are opposing view points on this issue. At first sight living in a village seems to have more advantages but in actual fact city life gives much more variety with plenty pluses for a modern person. Thus, I strongly believe that living in a city has more pros than cons.
