Writing task 1

The table chart compares three main features of underground subways systems among six famous cities consist of: opened date, the length of the route, and the number of passengers.

Overall, London was the first city to establish metro transportation and witnessed the longest route, while Los Angeles was the latest city to publicize this kind of transportation. In addition, Tokyo consistently had the highest number of commuters per year.

London opened underground subways systems in 1863, followed by Paris and Tokyo in the early 20th century, 1900 and 1927 respectively, while Los Angeles established this transportation 100 years later.

London had the longest route with 394 km in the examined group, by contrast, the figure for Kyoto metro was the shortest at 11 km.

Looking at the passenger per year column, the number of commuters in Tokyo was hugest at 1927 million, followed by Paris with nearly one-third lower, at 1191 million. The number of passengers in London was just 775 million per year despite the long-standing subway operation. Kyoto and Los Angles had the smallest figures with 45 and 50 million respectively.

Writing task 2

Some people believe that children should be encouraged in competitive attitude, while the others may claim that co-operation is more beneficial when they grow up. In my opinion, although both abilities are important in adult life, co-operation outweighs the sense of competition for several reasons.

On the one hand, the sense of competition is completely necessary for children because it makes them stronger in adult life. Childs could understand more about their strengths when competing with others in games or team-up activities at school. Moreover, establishing competitive skills in children might help build their self-confidence, while pushing them to work independently and more quickly in life's work. Therefore, competition should be encouraged to help children face competitive situations in the future with less fear and regressive.

On the other hand, learning to co-operate with others is more essential for helping children in their future work. Nowadays, numerous companies consider the team collaboration skills of employees rather than work skill aspects. Furthermore, I believe that great work comes from group work, associating with people may bring a wide connection for the young to walk on a long career path in the future. Granted, one might argue that some types of jobs can be done faster by oneself, but it is unreasonable to complete long-term jobs without teammates. Besides, I believe that children should be taught to collaborate with their partners in learning or playing in a school environment because they might be improved their understanding, empathy, and caring early in life.

In conclusion, children need to interpret not only a sense of competition but also co-operation in general development as well. Nevertheless, I hold the view that cooperation is more advantageous in adult life.
