There’s ‘you’ in YOU-th


There is undoubtedly pressure on all youths to be diligent in their studies, respectful of their elders and good, moral citizens of a country. Most of the time, as youths, we’d rather be chatting with our friends, chilling out to good music, sitting and daydreaming rather than pondering on our responsibilities in the future. Having gone through a sample essay during ESLunch Writing session, what are your thoughts on this matter?

ACTIVITY QUESTION: A country’s future depends on its young people. Therefore, a country should invest heavily in its youth. Do you agree or disagree with this statement. Why?

I'm Heading the EAL dept and Teaching ESL Students in the Mainstream Classroom (TESMC) trainer on Jeju island, South Korea. I'm enjoying the IT revolution in the classroom and discovering new IT tools to support my lessons. Reading is at the top of my list: “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go" Dr Seuss, I can read with my eyes shut. Learning Korean is my biggest challenge at this point in time. However, a word a day is my target.

  1. Yes I agree with the statement, ‘Therefore, a country should invest heavily in the youth.’ If country wants to improve their quality or power of its, they need to invest heavily in youth. When the youth grows, they become adults. When adults get job and starts to work, then now the society starts to work. If there is no working labors, no heads, then there will be no result from country or society. And those workers are from us, the youth.

    • Yes, you and your friends are vital to your country’s future. In fact, youths are important in terms of the future development of the world we live in. Education has been the number one priority of many parents as it does provide jobs, money, a home, a better life for many and the ability to do as you like when you are older. I wish all the best in attaining your goals.
