Should the number of weekly working hours be decreased?

自分の解答例(240単語・所要時間28分)

    The length of working hours is a worldwide and controversial problem. I strongly support the idea that we should decrease the number of weekly working hours because shortening working hours can boost our working efficiency, conduce to build a tidy relationship with family and local community, and stimulate economic growth. I want to elaborate on the reasons of my opinion in the following paragraphs.

    The primary reason is that decreasing working hours can make us work more effectively and employees will be eager to finish their allocated tasks in shorter time as they can. Experts say that most employees waste their 50% of working time in browsing webs and chatting with their colleagues because there are not so many tasks to do but only stay in the office until the end of office time.

    Furthermore, if we can decrease working hours, then we will have more time to spend  with family and local community. It is said that many social problems stem from lacking or fragile relationship with people around us.

    Last but not least, decreasing working hours can give us more time to shop. Experts say that more than 75% of workers do not have enough time to go to shops on weekdays. If they can leave their office earlier than usual, economy will be accelerated by their potential consumption.

    Taking the above aforementioned into consideration, I am of the opinion that our weekly working hours should be decreased.

Should the use of genetically modified crops be banned?

自分の解答例(205単語・所要時間25分)

 Using genetically modified crops is a worldwide and controversial problem. There are some people who say that modified crops are harmful and dangerous. But, I strongly support the idea that we should use genetically modified crops to tackle with some emergent problems. I have three points to elaborate on the reasons of my opinion.

    The primary reason is that we have to solve foods problem. It is estimated that the world population will reach ten billion in the end of this century. Experts say that the earth has its foods supplies capacity and ten billion is extremely beyond the capacity. Experts also say that genetically modified crops are the only reasonable option to deal with the problem.

    Furthermore, we can use genetic engineering technology in other ways such as making more effective vaccine and preserving endangered animals. We can acquire a lot of benefits from the innovative technology.

    Last but not least, the opinion that genetically modified crops are harmful is false. According to the recent study of The National Health and Foods Department, there are no negative consequences due to using the crops.

    Taking the above aforementioned into consideration, I am of the opinion that we should not ban uses of genetically modified crops.

●感想 ・初めて30分以内でかけた
・スペルミスはまだまだ多い
・あいかわらず字が汚い
・2番目のボディ内容はちょっとずれている感がある

リーディング問題を2回分やってみました。
結果は、

●2013年第3回
20/25 + 3/6 + 8/10 = 31/41

●2012年第3回
20/25 + 4/6 + 7/10 = 31/41

でした。

最低30点はリーディングで確保したいので、まずまずといった感じです。
もっとたくさんの過去問を解いて、正しい選択肢のクセを体で習得して正答率を高めていきます。


2018年第3回の英検まで、あと34日。
今回から時間を測ってやってみました。

Agree or disagree: Extreme social inequality will never be eliminated?

自分の解答例(226単語・所要時間40分)

    Extreme social inequality is a worldwide and a controversial problem. There are some people say that we can solve this problem by enacting laws. But, I do not think so. Personally, I agree with the idea that extreme social inequality will never be eliminated. I have three points to elaborate on the reasons of my opinion.

    The primary reason is that our social structure has educational and economic drawbacks. Well educated people have much more opportunities to be rich because companies are eager to hire them even if it will cost a lot of money. If people want to have a higher education, they have to prepare enough money for tuition fee. Unfortunately, this is not the case for the poor. Therefore, it is difficult for the poor to improve their economic situation.

    Furthermore, the development of information technologies is one more cause of expanding of social inequality. IT experts say that people who have deeper knowledge of information technologies earn more money than those who are not familiar with information technologies.

    Last but not least, using laws to eliminate the social inequality is not a good idea because it can easily decelerate our economic activities. Once we have sluggish economy, all people will experience financial difficulties.

    Taking the above aforementioned into consideration, I am of the opinion that extreme social inequality will never be eliminated.

英作文の練習用にジャパンタイムズの「英作文問題完全制覇」を使っています。212個のコンテンツブロックから使えるフレーズとアイデアをできるだけ多くパクりたいです。試験日までに30個の実践問題中20個は消化したいです。



今日は1番目の実践問題に挑戦しました。書いたものをDMM英会話の先生に添削してもらいました。書いた内容に関するディスカッションも同時に行っていたので、ライティングとスピーキングをいっぺんに鍛えることができます。しかし、事前に英作文をしないといけないので、このスタイルの受講は準備が大変です。

Should Japan have more lenient immigration policies?

●自分の解答例(234単語)

    Immigration is a worldwide and a controversial problem. We can not deny that there are some people against the lenient immigration policies due to concerns of local community safety and terrorist attacks. But, I strongly support the idea that we should allow more immigrants to live and work in Japan. I have three points to eloborate on the reasons of my opinion.

    The primary reason is that Japan has a big problem of shortage of working-age population. The National Labor and Health Department predicts that Japan will lose half of the current workers in two decades unless we fix it. Especially, IT industry needs more skilled workers. Therefore, introducing  lenient immigration policies is unavoidable.

    Further more, increased immigrants can bring positive economic consequences. The number of foreign visitors has doubled in the past five years and those visitors have significantly boosted Japanese economy. If we have more immigrants, then we can accelerate the economic growth. In addition, the government can expect more tax revenue.

    Last but not least, the idea that immigrants are dangerous is false. According to the recent survey of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police, there are no concrete figures to show that foreigners commit more crimes than Japanese. The cause of the false image of foreigners is media’s broadcast negative portrayal of them.

    Taking the above points into consideration, I am of the opinion that lenient immigration policies is beneficial for us.
