Fruitful for Eiken pre1 No.5&6

明日英検なので、なにかのヒントになればと思って、添削後のみあわてて公開。「Harvard Business Review 学習会」の影響が色濃くでている2本。

I tried to answer the question;
Agree or disagree: The government needs to encourage young people to live in rural villages (5th day)
Nowadays, the urban culture appears to be attractive to many people, in particular to younger people. They are trying to go to college or find a job in big cities. This tendency results in a trend toward urbanization. In my opinion, however, the government needs to encourage young people to live in rural villages, for two main reasons.

First of all, the lifestyle in big cities is distracting for college students. They have many places to hang out. Unfortunately, some of the students are so childish that they cannot resist temptation. That is a waste of time and money. If they lived in rural areas, they could concentrate more on their studies, even during their free time.

Stopping urbanization is also beneficial to society. Frequently, urbanization is accompanied by the aging and depopulation of villages. You can find many vacant houses and abandoned farms that have been for sale for years. If young people return to the villages with ambitions to start a business, it will boost the economy, not only of the region but also of the whole country.

In conclusion, I believe that the government should persuade youths today to live in rural villages. This policy will lead to both academic and economic success.


I tried to answer the question;
Agree or disagree: Being friends with co-workers is important (6th day)
Business leaders are trying to improve the productivity and morale of their teams. Good teamwork is essential for achieving high performance. However, I disagree with the statement that being friends with co-workers is important, for two main reasons, as I'll outline below.

First of all, friendship has nothing to do with teamwork. You have something in common with your friends, such as hobbies, taste in music, and sense of humor. You can relax and have fun with them. By contrast, you want your co-workers to be competent in their work. Even if they have different taste from you, there is nothing wrong with that. Expertise is more valuable than anything else in the workplace.

In addition, the mixing of public and private matters has become a big problem in Japan. Most managers believe that going drinking after work helps build strong teamwork and morale. They like singing at karaoke bars until midnight. On the other hand, younger employees get frustrated because they feel it is a waste of time and money. They place more importance on their private life than older generations do.

In conclusion, I do not think that being friends with colleagues is not so crucial. Instead, each worker should focus on building skills and developing expertise.
