TOEFL Essay Topic 126 - Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? There is nothing that young people can teach older people. Use specific reasons and examples to support your position.
Young people enjoy life more
Throughout our lives, we enjoy our lives depending on the situation. Younger people enjoy their life in their way, and older people enjoy their life in their way. In this setting, the question hand is that which people can enjoy life more. In my view, young people can enjoy life more with less responsibly and stronger sensitivity to things.
First of all, younger people have less responsibility for family or company so that they can take more risk.
For example, I changed my job eight years ago. After graduated from university, I got a job at Goldman Sachs because of its high salary. However, at that time I wasn’t happy because the job didn’t suit me. So I decided to change my job. Now, as an account executive at Dentsu, which is the largest and most prestigious ad agency in Japan, I provide marketing solution for our clients. It’s my dream job, which I can really enjoy. The reason why I took a risk is that I was young and had less responsibility then. Now, I have my family to support, so it’s difficult for me to decide to change my job to other industry. As this example shows, with less responsibility young people are more likely to try what they really want and enjoy life more.
In addition, young people are more sensitive to things, so they can enjoy things more even if they do the same things old people do. When I was in elementary school, I went to Singapore with my family for sightseeing. I enjoyed my first trip abroad very much. Everything like its tropical weather, ethnic food, and English speaking people were fascinating for me. However, when I re-visited Singapore with my friends last year, I felt less excitement than the first visit. Singapore had developed since my first visit and, especially, Marina Bay Sans, which was famous for its rooftop pool, was excellent! Also, in my second visit, as an adult, I could afford to try a fancy restaurant I couldn’t try before. Nevertheless, I was not able to enjoy as much as in my first visit, because my sensitivity had been diminished since then. It is true that older people know more about how to enjoy and are more likely to afford various things but young people’s sensitivities to things outweigh them.
In summary, I agree with the statement “Young people enjoy life more than other people do.” Young people can try things with fewer burdens with stronger sensitivity.
