Argumentative Essay: Reasons You Should Learn English

If you plan on making your way in the world, learning a second language is imperative. English has a foothold as the “language of business,” and being so, has become the most commonly learnt second language amongst foreign language speakers. Not only is English significant in the business world, but in general, when people of differing native languages congregate, English is the language of everyday conversation. Again, this is because it’s most commonly taught in foreign schools, as English is the collective language spoken by 1.8 billion people worldwide, or 27% of the world’s population. By virtue of this, for those willing to make the effort, learning English proffers forth benefits that learning any other second language mightn’t. Highlighted below are some of these benefits, including employment opportunities; technical, economic…

Argumentative Essay: Online Learning and Educational Access

Conventional learning is evolving with the help of computers and online technology. New ways of learning are now available, and improved access is one of the most important benefits available. People all around the world are experiencing improved mobility as a result of the freedom and potential that online learning provides, and as academic institutions and learning organisations adopt online learning technologies and remote-access learning, formal academic education is becoming increasingly legitimate.

Whereas before, formal academic qualifications could only be gained by participating in a full time course on site, the…

Argumentative Essay: Where There’s no Need for Homework in High School

Here I intend to express argumentative reasons as to why homework in high school is not necessary. I intend to show that homework is part of an old system that is now no longer relevant when it comes to learning concepts and testing student learning and such. Getting someone else to do your homework is a time tested trick This is something that students have been doing since before America was colonized by New Worlders. It is a trick that ancient British people were using long before digital plagiarism and other such things. The fact is that students are going to cheat when it comes to homework in high school. So why not have all the learning done in schools and forget the homework bit? Homework is what happens when…

Argumentative Essay: Natural Disaster: Their Abatement and Safety Measures

Introduction & Thesis It should be left up to the government when it comes to natural disasters. They are something that government agencies can predict and are able to give warning for. The government should be the main focus when it comes to natural disaster safety measures and abatement. Argument The government is not able to predict all natural disasters, and so should not be held accountable for death tolls or the damage caused by natural disasters. Counter Argument The government is in a far better position to protect people from natural disasters then they are on their own. Plus, they have access to weather monitoring devices and warning systems that they can use to help save lives. We have seen what happens when a government does nothing from when…

Argumentative Essay: Marriage

Once you reach a certain age or a certain amount of time spent with the same partner, especially as a woman, friends and family will inevitably start asking questions about marriage or even downright pressure you into taking this step. But is getting married such a good idea? I believe not, since, nowadays, at least in the developed countries, it doesn’t bring truly valuable benefits. Marriage is no longer necessary legally or practically. Once upon a time, for a woman, getting married meant ensuring financial security and gaining access to a variety of legal rights they wouldn’t dream of otherwise. But now, in the modern world, years after the feminist movement has established legal rights for women, we no longer need marriage to get access to certain benefits. Nowadays, women…

Argumentative Essay – Macbeth is a Tragic Hero not a Villain

William Shakespeare’s Macbeth is a story of regicide and a warning against black magic. It’s easy to see Macbeth as the primary antagonist, because he becomes the face of the cast of villains, and the focus of the main characters’ anger. Macbeth, though, was not a maker of his destiny. The true antagonists lie behind him in both Lady Macbeth and the three witches. The three witches are the most obvious villains. To see this, we have to look at the time in which this was written. Shakespeare wrote his plays in a time where black magic was considered taboo. People were deathly afraid of it and the sentence was death for anyone who practiced it. Shakespeare wanted to appease his audience, therefore he invented the witches as the main…

Argumentative Essay: Why is it so Important to Know More than One Language

We live in a multilingual world that is becoming increasingly globalized and it is therefore very important to know more than one language. There are three main reasons for this: an additional language can help you progress in your career, you gain an awareness of other cultures, and it helps increase our understanding and knowledge of our own language. More and more job advertisements are now specifying that they want second, third, and even fourth languages in some cases, and knowing more than one language opens up your prospects in a highly important way. Furthermore, as more and more companies begin to trade internationally, people are frequently beginning jobs for which they need no language skills, but then being asked to relocate abroad, or offered a promotion that requires language…

Argumentative Essay: The Importance of Sports

Participation in sports is extremely important, and should be encouraged much more. Children and young people in particular need to do sport so that they develop good habits that they can continue into adulthood. The main benefits of sport are improved health and fitness, and the development of social and communication skills. With more than a third of adults in the USA being classed as obese, and many more being overweight, it has never been more important to participate in sports. People that do sport on a regular basis are burning more calories than those that don’t, and are therefore less likely to end up overweight. Being a healthy weight means that you will be less likely to die young and suffer from heart disease, strokes, high blood pressure, diabetes…

Argumentative essay on gun control

In my essay, I intend to show that further gun control is simply not an option. I argue this point by using parallels in the gaming and movie industry. I show how further gun control will eventually lead to a banning of guns in the US by arguing points both in support of gun control and against “further” gun control. No guns means less murders and that is a good reason to get rid of guns completely. There are countries that have outright banned the sale, use and ownership of guns, and in those countries the murder and accidental death rate is far lower than in the USA. The other side to this is that countries without guns find other ways to kill people. For example, in Scotland (in Britain)…

Argumentative Essay – The Great Depression Indirectly Led to the Outbreak of the Second World War

The Great Depression occurred at the end of the Roaring Twenties, a time of economic boom around the world. It led to almost a decade of economic troubles, which are often known as the Gloomy Thirties. The Wall Street stock exchange crashed and the world was plunged into crisis as America began recalling its loans. In many ways, the Great Depression helped forge the tools that caused the Second World War. This essay discusses why this is. Firstly, we have to look at the trends. Economic problems cause people to lose faith in mainstream politics. Extremist parties more receptive to the idea of war tend to do better in times of economic trouble. This is obvious today as the European Elections of 2014 led to far right wing parties like…
