Today we had small talks about your essays and worked with readtheory.org, and since I am now able to track your progress, I can see that everybody has started (at least close to everybody). Thanks for not getting angry with me, when you had to start it all over again!
Here are your introductions from last week:
Travelling will be easier …
In the future travelling will probably be easier than nowadays. With the technology constantly improving. Because of that they can build newer airplanes, that travel faster and faster. Even today you can travel to space if you have enough money. Just think in the future that these things are more common.
Football players earn too much money
It is said that football players earn too much money. An obvious example of this is that the emergency service saves lives and do not even earn half as much as the football players. The emergency service does something that matters for the community and the players just entertain a crowd of people.
It is much more fun to look at a football game, so people pay a lot for it. Therefore, the football players earn too much money.
The internet is good
Today millions of people around the world are using the internet. Twitter, Facebook and Instagram are sites where you have the opportunity to meet new people. You can write and send pictures to people across the world. On top of this, people have the opportunity to get jobs.
