TOEFL Topic 010: Some people prefer to live in a small town. Others prefer to live in a big city. Which place would you prefer to live in?
Both big city and small town have separate/independent advantages and disadvantages. Which place people prefer to live depends on their hobby and job. Big city is noisier than small town with many restaurants, bars, cinemas, theatres, and parks. In contrast with hometown, there are hay hills, green meadows, wooden small house, and peaceful river. Therefore, small town is suitable for people who do not like noisy.
Moreover, small town is less companies and factories than big city. Big city is full of skyscrapers and vehicles instead of green trees, windy fields and pollute river like countryside. As a result, it is easy to face up with traffic jam in rush hour and polluted air with smoke from factories in the noisy era. Obviously, it causes more bad impact for people living in big city than ones locating in countryside. Perhaps, it is the reason of there is more hospital in big city as well.
The last thing but the most important thing is that there are more opportunities of job in city than in hometown. Logically, many youths leave from their small town to big cities for bright future. It is a public phenomenon in developing countries such as Vietnam - my country. In hometown, workforce is both lacking and unwell-trained. On the other hand, in big city, many unemployed lack of ability to afford jobs; they are odd workforce.
Consequently, city life is appropriate for young and healthy people; countryside life is good for the rest. On the other hand, in my opinion, it is necessary to have a balance between big city and small town. In addition, despite of disadvantages and advantages of big city, I would like city life than small city.
