III. MỘT SỐ VÍ DỤ VỀ LỖI QUAN ĐIỂM KHÔNG RÕ RÀNG (UNCLEAR POSITION) VÀ CÁCH KHẮC PHỤC
TOPIC 01: The internet is the best place to find information. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?
INTRODUCTION: The network of networks is the best platform for gaining knowledge. In my opinion, I completely agree with the given statement because the internet has become a convenient source of information on various subjects in our modern world. [introduction viết là hoàn toàn đồng ý với việc “the best place to find information”]
CONCLUSION: To summarize, I agree that the internet is the most useful resource for gathering information; however, there are some disadvantages to be concerned, making other sources of information more realiable than the Internet in some cases. [conclusion lại nói khác, không còn là “the best place”] As a result, society is advised to use available information on websites intelligently or face the consequences.
TOPIC 02: Some people think that employers should not care about the way their employees dress, because what matters is the quality of their work. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
THESIS STATEMENT 01 – INEFFECTIVE // UNABLE TO SHOW YOUR CLEAR POSITION
In the modern workplace, dress codes are changing as employers focus more on results than on the rules that employees must follow. There are strong arguments for both points of view.
THESIS STATEMENT 02 – EFFECTIVE // SHOW YOUR CLEAR POSITION – TOTALLY AGREE
Thesis statement: In the modern workplace, dress codes are changing as employers focus more on results than on the rules that employees must follow. I completely agree with the view that workers should be judged on their work alone, and that they should be allowed to dress however they want.
Body Paragraphs: the first reason & the second reason
[UNCLEAR POSITION] Conclusion: In conclusion, based on the discussed importance of imposing company dress codes, I am convinced that it is advisable for companies to make uniform compulsory at the workplace.
[CLEAR POSITION] Conclusion: In conclusion, based on the discussed importance of giving the freedom of outfit choice to workers, I am convinced that it is advisable for companies to impose relaxed dress codes at the workplace.
THESIS STATEMENT 03 – EFFECTIVE // SHOW YOUR CLEAR POSITION – PARTICALLY AGREE
Thesis statement: In the modern workplace, dress codes are changing as employers focus more on results than on the rules that employees must follow. While I agree that the way people dress should be seen as irrelevant in many work contexts, I believe that dress codes still exist for good reasons in certain professions.
Body Paragraphs: par 01 (fields in which uniform is important) & par 02 (fields in which employees should be allowed to get dressed freely)
Conclusion: In conclusion, it is advisable for fields paying heed to workers’ appearance to require employees to wear a uniform, whereas employees in creative ones should be given complete autonomy in choosing their outfits. Therefore, the question of whether a specific company should care about their employees’ attires depends on its characteristic.
TOPIC 03: Some people say that the best way to improve public health is by increasing the number of sports facilities. Others, however, say that this would have little effect on public health and that other measures are required.
Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.
|UNCLEAR POSITION||CLEAR POSITION|
|Thesis statement: While some consider investing in sports facilities as the most effective way to enhance public health, others doubt such a solution and argue for other measures.||
Thesis statement: While some consider investing in sports facilities as the most effective way to enhance public health, others doubt such a solution and argue for other measures. In this essay, two views shall be thoroughly examined, before the provision of my own thoughts. = In this essay, two views shall be thoroughly examined, before my explanation of why the former/latter view is more convincing. [chỉ thêm 1 câu mà biến thành an effective TS]
Thesis statement: While others consider investing in sports facilities as the most effective way to enhance public health, I doubt the feasibility of such a solution and argue for other more viable measures.
Conclusion 01: While I agree with providing sports facilities can enhance public health, I believe that other measures are more effective. (không clear position mà cũng không answer the topic)
Conclusion 02: In conclusion, while I can argue that the provision of sports facilities is the optimal solution for some people, I also believe that there are more effective measures to be applied. (câu opinion ba phải chưa rõ position)
|Conclusion: In conclusion, despite arguments for providing sports facilities as an effective way to ensure public health, I am convinced that it is far from being the best one. Other measures such as [XX] and [YY] can serve as significantly more working solutions due to their cost-effectiveness and sustainability.|
