Writing Task 2 (AC+GT):-
Providing a national system in a country where the unemployed receive a regular payment only encourages people not to seek work and puts an unreasonable strain on a country’s financial resources.
Discuss this statement and give your opinion.
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your knowledge or experience.
In the modern day society, money is a driving force for nearly everyone. Most people aspire to have lots of money and to have the ability to live the life they want. In order to obtain money, people work in different jobs. In some countries around the world, governments have initiated a system where unemployed people receive a regular payment to enable them to survive. This system is often controversial. Some people believe it is an excellent idea, whilst others believe that it puts an unreasonable strain on a country’s financial resources.
When looking at the positive aspects of this system, it can be said that it prevents people from having a private bankruptcy. When somebody becomes unemployed, he or she will have on-going costs such as rent for a dwelling, bills for water, telephone and electricity as well as cost of food and several other things. Without a salary, this person will fall into debt, because they will be unable to cover these costs. A national unemployment payment system will therefore prevent this person from losing nearly everything over time. Without this system, many people would become homeless and would potentially engage in criminal activities to survive. Therefore, one can say that this system is positive. Although stories are heard of people exploiting the system, usually people that become unemployed want to find new employment fast in order to become financially independent again, meaning that the government does not have to pay a regular payment for long.
Although there are positive aspects of this system, one can also say that payment made by the government is too high, it will prevent people from seeking for work actively. Occasionally, the payment people receive is higher than their potential salaries, deterring them from working and creating an on-going cost for the government.
In conclusion, the proposed system has positive and negative aspects. Personally, I believe that the positive effects of the system outweigh the negative. The payment must remain on a level that helps people survive without regular salaries, but does not seem attractive to exploit over a longer period of time.

- How you know these people
- How much these two people have similar personalities (characters) / how much they look similar
- And explain how (or, how well) the two people get along with each other
I know many people and many families. But, here I would like to talk about two people of the same family. They live in my neighbourhood. I have known them since my childhood. They are my friends too. Their names are Jyoti and Simran. They are sisters, in fact they are twins. They spend all they seem inseparable. I close to talk about them because they are my good friends. They are 22 years old. They both have long hair, fair complexion and sparkling black eyes. Jyoti has a mole on her chin and this is the only point of difference in them. They look as similar as two peas in a pod. But when you come to know them better, you find that they are poles apart in nature. Jyoti is a very polite and down-to-earth person whereas Simran is very blunt and rude at times. Despite their differences, they get along very well together. Jyoti is an extrovert and likes socializing. She is also very helpful. Whenever I am in any need I go to her. She never lets me down. In fact, she helps anyone who goes to her for any help. Simran, on the other hand, is an introvert. She is very quiet and remains in her own shell. She gives the impression of being selfish. But as I know her well, I know that she is just the quiet type. She likes her own company and can sit alone for hours.
I sometimes wonder how two identical twins could be so different in nature. I like both of them, but I have a better rapport with Jyoti. We were in the same class. We used to go to school together. Both were in the same class. We used to go to school together. Both were good at studies. They did their masters in computer applications. Now both are working in a multinational company.

This might have great effects in the future. The bonding with grandparents will decrease. Children would not know how to get along with relatives. Because of less care and affection children might go on the wrong path.

What the future holds for us is difficult to predict, but as far as I can see, people are becoming aware and are realizing the importance of family. I cannot see people going back to the joint family system, but close-knit extended families will become very common. Some people are also downshifting, which means that they are not accepting any promotions, so as to give more time to their family.

Yes, family is important to most people, because most people realize that friends can be fair-weather friends, but family will be with them through their thick and thin. This is a very famous Chinese adage that ‘in times of test family is best’.
