TOEFL Essay Topic 66 - Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Classmates are a more important influence than parents on a child`s success in school. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
There may be many people who has an good or bad influence on one’s life. Some people may think one’s parents are more important than his classmates, but in my view, his classmates are more important to succeed in his school life. I have two reasons to support my opinion.
First, to achieve something with classmates is precious. I am a student at the Univ. of Tokyo and the Dept. of precision engineering, and I was responsible for the project which show things related to engineering in the festival at our university. For example, robots, VR games and an application which suggests one’s best hair style. We created such things with mathematics, signal processing, and programming, which we learn at our department. I have already finished the project and it gave me precisous experience to cooporate with someone. I could not have experienced things like that with my parents.
Second, as I explained above, the classmates will be good partners and vise versa. I usually study subjects with my classmates because we can share knowledge and we can spend more time on studying to mark higher score with each other. I mean they are good rival to enhance our ability. Eventually, I could mark A+ on all of the subjects I took and I got the scholarship which is the hardest in my university.
In summary, classmates have better influence than his parents on his life because they are good partners while they are rivals, and parents can not play such roles.
