Soclal Interaction

Nowadays we communicate less with our family members.

To what extent do you agree or disagree?


It is often argued that millennial generation is largely witnessing the shrinking communication among family members. This essay completely agrees with the statement and discusses how changing life style and enhancing indulgence into the virtual world are impacting the personal lives of young generation.

Firstly, the changing lifestyle owing to huge educational burden, intense competition, and 24/7 work commitments especially in developing countries has put a huge pressure on young generation leaving a little room for them to spend time with family members and enjoy on family occasions. One clear example is young generation specifically in developing countries majorly involve in projects at workplace that include co-ordination among people from different countries which often leads to largely working late nights owing to different time zones. The prevailing late night working culture creates a major time mismatch with other members in the family.

Secondly, the blurring line between real and virtual life such as easy access to social media, internet browsing, various applications and games on mobile itself engage youth and capture major chunk of the day. As per a survey conducted by American Youth Association, the millennial prefer to spend 80% of their idle time on internet and a meager 5% of their time with family.

To conclude, the changing life style and evolution of virtualization have completely disrupted the personal life of young generation. This has left little time for personal communication that nurture the relationships, hence witnessed the rising number of relationships going sour in modern society.

I think your points are really great and you clearly organised it well, making your essay easy to follow. I think you just have some awkward phrases here and there but then again I didn't do too well in my writing part so don't trust me on this one.

I got the exact same question in my test! And I unfortunately didn't get the mark that I wanted.

I was curious, what mark did you receive?

Recently, the number of people who live alone is increasing in the world. Many people want to live far away from their families.

Analysing both the reasons of living alone as well as drawbacks of this on the community will show this.

For example, when a problem occurs between two persons, who have a weak relationship, in a family. Consequently, these persons leave their families and live far away. Another reason is that many people want to be independent. For instance, recently many youngers work and make many that help them to live independent and then get marriage.

According to me

For instance, recently many "youngsters" work and make "a lot" that "enable" them to live "independently" and then get "married".

my views on this causes and effects of living alone essay
by: Teresa Fernandez

The essay is good, but be careful of mistakes like 'get marriage'. The correct way to write is ''get married.''

In the same way there are mistakes here and there. However' the essays format, the setting, the idea are good and focussed.

correction for essay on the causes and effects of living alone
by: Anonymous

First, in the second paragraph, i noticed a mistake in spelling, the paraphrase should be "make money"
instead of make many.

Secondly, i think the topic was vital and the writer was quite good in organising his thoughts and analysing the problem and its reasons.

same topic for my july ielts exam.
by: ben

I started by saying that everybody had the ability to make choice in life. Even God said he had placed before us life or death, we are to make our choice.

In my opinion living alone has a negative impact on the development of the the country. I said that people who live alone may not be able to socialize well and therefore not be able to make significant contributions to the development of their country. I gave an example of bill gates who through his ideas made necessary contributions to the IT world through micro soft because he was not living alone but was good at socializing.

please help. I need to know if i had a point or i was out of point.

Dependent or Independent Relationships

by Sameep David
(India)

Some people think that in the modern world we are more dependent on each other, while others think that people have become more independent.

Discuss both views and give your own opinion.


The modern world is integrated socially where technology plays a crucial role. While technology has given the people freedom to enjoy their life independently, they have also become dependent on each other’s support when things do not go well in this fast paced society. This essay will analyze both the views and will explain why people have become more independent nowadays.

In the modern world, it is fairly easy to share information with anyone. People are heavily involved on social networking sites where they get updates about the people they are connected to. The posts only shows the amazing things happening in someone’s life like travelling to a new country, getting a job in a top multinational company or buying a car which triggers disappointment and negativity to the reader. In order to overcome these thoughts, people need emotional and moral support of the family. A recent study conducted by the Cambridge University highlighted people who are regularly online on networking sites are less happier to those who uses them rarely.

Although, with help of modern devices people have become more independent than they were before. A youngster staying away from his/her family is more comfortable in managing life by cooking food through online videos or easily commuting from one city to another. The modern technology has also assisted the people to connect with their family and loved ones when they are in a different city to earn a livelihood. This has assisted the children to move away from parents to achieve their goals and aspirations.

In conclusion, the dependence on people will always be there one way or another but due to the modern way of life people have become more independent and will continue to do so.
