ADVANTAGES DISADVANTAGES MODEL ESSAY



Question: Describe the advantages and disadvantages of living in cities.


Today, it is clear that cities are getting bigger and bigger. This is because more and more people have left the countryside in order to find work there. In this essay, I will look at the advantages and disadvantages of living in cities.


There are many advantages to living in a city. Firstly, the opportunity for work is much better than in the countryside. All major companies are based in big cities, and for many jobs, such as engineering, law and advertising, the city is the only place where these jobs exist. A second advantage is culture and entertainment. Cities are a centre for the arts, such as theatre, art galleries and museums. All in all, cities offer people a lot of career opportunities and they can be exciting places to live.
However, there are also disadvantages to city life. The first and perhaps most obvious disadvantage is the cost of living. Cities are usually much more expensive than villages or small towns. For example, food and housing cost more. Secondly, crime is a big disadvantage of living in cities. Statistics show us that crime is higher in the city than in the countryside. Consequently, cities are expensive and sometimes dangerous places.
In conclusion, there are both advantages and disadvantages of living in a city. On the one hand, cities provide lots of opportunities for work and they are exciting, interesting places. On the other hand, they can be both expensive and dangerous. In my opinion, before you choose to live in a city you should know both the positive and negative factors of city life. If you do this, you will make the best decision.
