個人旅行、ツアー旅行どっちが好き?

Some people say that joining a group tour is more enjoyable than traveling by themselves. What do you think about that?

  • concern
  • chance
  • adventurous

 I think that joining a group tour is more enjoyable than traveling by themselves for the following two reasons. 

 First, there are no concerns. A group tour is guided by a tour guide, and you don’t need to prepare anything, especially checking where safe places are. 

 Second, a group travel can create chances to meet with a lot of travelers. During the group tour you will talk with travelers in the same tour group and share information about the country you are visiting.

 For these two reasons, I believe that group travel is better than traveling by themselves.

高校生は海外旅行に行くべきか?

Some people say that Japanese high schools students should go on trips abroad. What do you think about that?

  • culture
  • valuable

 I think that Japanese high schools students should go on trips abroad for the following two reasons. 

 First, it is necessary to learn culture. It is common to hire foreigners due to lack of workforce. Therefore, young people must understand the cultural difference. Traveling abroad is the best way to do that. 

 Second, traveling abroad is a valuable experience. When staying abroad they will learn different ways of thinking. As a result, they will think differently and assimilate into our modern society that is rapidly developing. 

 To conclude, I believe that high schools must take them to go abroad.

 First, it is addictive and harmful. Recently there are a lot of children that cannot stop using smartphones. It is just a waste of time and children must focus on studying.

Recently, there are some Japanese actors and actresses  in foreign films. Do you think the number of these actors and actresses will increase in the future?

  • Opportunity
  • Popular
  • film industry

 I think the number of actors and actresses who work in foreign films will increase in the future for the following two reasons. 

 First, the domestic film industry is shrinking. Due to the declining population, it is difficult to earn money in Japan. Thus, they will work in foreign countries. 

 Second, appearing in foreign films is a way to become popular. Now it is common for them to become famous by appearing foreign movies. To survive in a harder environment, the number will increase.

 To conclude, I believe that actors and actresses will work in foreign countries in the future.

 Second, some sports activities improve their health. Recently it is difficult for children to have time to play sports because there are no places. Sports activity improves their health and strength.

  For the two reasons mentioned above, I believe that students must participate in club activities.

  • Experience

  • Donations
  • Learning environment
  • Maintenance

 I do not agree with the opinion that all people should be able to enter museums for free for the following two reasons.

 Second, maintenance costs are needed for museums. In order to maintain its facility and work of art that they own, costs are required. Visitors have to pay for them.

 For the two reasons mentioned above, I think people must pay to enter museums.

現代人はサプリの取りすぎ?

Some people say that people today depend too much on supplements such as protein. What do you think about that?

  • protein
  • balance
  • nutrition

 I think people today depend too much on supplements such as protein for the following two reasons.

 First, too much consumption of supplements causes disease. It is reported that recently there are a lot of patients suffering from kidney issues caused by heavy consumption of protein powder.

 Second, nutrition balance must be controlled by ordinary meals. As animals, we must take nutrition from foods such as meat and vegetables rather than supplements. 

 For the two reasons I believe that recently supplementation dependence is quite a serious problem, and the government must show guidelines to use them.

将来、紙の辞書を使わなくなるのか?

Today, many people use smartphones to check the meaning of English words. Do you think people will stop buying paper dictionaries in the future?

  • Convenient
  • Cheap
  • Efficiency

I think people will stop buying paper dictionaries in the future for the following two reasons.

First, smartphones are convenient. Smartphones are small and easy to bring and can do everything. On the other hand, a paper dictionary is too big and heavy to carry.

Second, just having a smartphone is cheap and sufficient. Recently, every student has a smartphone and can search the meaning of words by using it, therefore, owning a paper dictionary is not reasonable.

For the two reasons mentioned above, I think that paper wordbooks will not be purchased in the future.

子供たちはもっと外で遊ぶべき?

It is often said that a lot of children tend to spend more time inside than before. Do you think children should be involved in outside activities?

  • Nature
  • Dangerous
  • Strength

 I think children should be involved in outside activities for the following two reasons. 

 First, outside activities tell them the importance of nature. Learning the importance of our environment, children will want to know the current situation of the earth. As a result, environmental problems will be solved by next generations.

 Second, playing outside improves physical strength. It is reported that recent students' physical strength is getting weaker and weaker because they play inside. Outside activities stimulate muscles and make them stronger. 

 For the two reasons mentioned above I believe that children should spend more time outside with friends.

日本は食料自給率を上げるべきか?

Some people say that Japan has to increase the production of food. What do you think about this?

  • Essential
  • Dependence
  • Cheap

   I think Japan must increase the production of food for the following two reasons.

 First, food is essential for our life. Food is a fundamental part of our economy. Therefore, it is the government's responsibility to try to raise it.

 Second, high food dependence on other countries is a risk. Japan can produce only 35% of the food which their nationals need. Therefore, our country completely depends on food sources in foreign countries. Japan If something happened such as war or global extreme weather, food prices would skyrocket.  

 To conclude, I believe that food production in Japan must be increased.

 I think that the number of Japanese restaurants in foreign countries will increase in the future for the following two reasons. 

 First, the reputation of Japanese foods will become better. As longevity is getting longer, awareness of healthy food is more valued. Therefore, Japanese cuisine, which has been regarded as healthy, will become popular. 

 Second, globalization will make Japanese food more popular. Due to globalization, the world is more connected, and many foreigners will visit Japan. As a result, authentic Japanese food is widely known.  

 To conclude, I believe Japanese restaurants will be more widely spread in the future.

日本は海外の人を受け入れるべきか?

Some people say that Japan should accept more people from other countries to work in Japan. Do you agree with this opinion?

  • Aging society
  • Culture
  • Language

I agree with this opinion that Japan should accept more people from other countries to work in Japan for the following two reasons.

 First, Japan is facing a lack of workforce and needs foreign workers. In Japan about one thirds of people are over 60s and due to this aging society, all industries need young workers from abroad.

 Second, foreign people stimulate the economy. As they settle in Japan, they spend a lot of money. As a result, the local economy will recover, and our society will be better.

To conclude, I believe that more foreign employees should be accepted.

These days, some people study on their smartphones. Do you think more people will do so in the future?

  • Cost
  • Motivation
  • Spare time

I think some more people will study on their smartphones in the future.

First, smartphones will be used as alternatives to textbooks. It is common to use tablets as textbook at school. Furthermore, by using smartphones which every student already has the government can reduce the costs of distributing tablets.

Second, more effective educational applications will be made. The application industry for education is rapidly developing. As a result, more effective applications for not only students but also adults will be made and spread to everyone.

For these two reasons, I believe that smartphones will be used for studying more.

I quite agree with the idea that the production and sales of cigarettes should be made illegal for the following two reasons. 

 First, smoking is highly addictive and harmful to health. It has been reported that smoking is one of the big causes of cancer. However, due to its strong dependence on tobacco, it is quite hard to quit. Prohibiting the production and sales of tobacco is the only solution.

 Second, smoking causes second hand smokers. Secondhand smoke is more dangerous compared to ordinary smoking because secondhand smoke contains larger amounts of toxic substances than ordinary smoking and will lead to fatal health problems especially for children. 

 For the two reasons mentioned above, I think we can say with confidence that the production and sales of cigarettes should be prohibited by law.

Some people say that Japan should improve relations with other Asian nations such as South Korea, North Korea, and China. However, I think that is not the Japanese government's priority. Rather, our nation's priority should be the relationship with the U.S. and so on.

First, it is impossible to have good relationships with non-democratic countries. One of communist party's main purposes is to destroy capitalism. China and North Korea are not only communist countries but also countries dominated by one political group or a dictator. Their animosity toward Japan is caused by the governments as Communists" not people's decision. It is not worth improving relationships with them unless their government's diplomatic policy is made by their citizens.

Second, it is just a waste of time to try to alleviate tension between Japan and South Korea. Japan has been supporting South Korea for a long time to maintain a good relationship with them. However, recent tension is caused by South Korea's acts. To make relationships normal, Japan should not do anything for South Korea.

To concede, I disagree with the idea of improving relations with Asian countries.
