CPE ESSAY ON QUALITY OF LIFE
CPE Writing Paper model . In the Proficiency in English Cambridge Exam (Paper 2- Writing, Part 1) you are given two pieces of text and are asked to write an essay based on the information given. #Words: 240-280
We all have dreams of having more and longer holidays, getting a better job, being fitter and living in a wealthier place. However, it is
difficult to further our dreams for several reasons. Both texts deal with the concept of «quality of life» pointing out how it influences our health and how difficult it is for some to have access to it.
According to the first passage, being healthy is not just necessary
but essential. We need to be in good physical and mental condition to be able to
keep a job and to participate actively in a social group. Unfortunately our
health state can be influenced by factors we cannot always control such as
living in a poor neighbourhood, a place with bad weather conditions or a
country in which people lack political freedom.
In the same way, the second text highlights the importance of the
climate, the environment and the economic situation of a country. According to
very interesting studies they play a major role in improving out quality of
life. It also states that very few people are ready to take the plunge and move
their housing in search of these factors. The sad reality is that for most of
us it is not easy to relocate for numerous reasons.
On the other hand, there are small simple things we can put into
practice to improve the way we live. These little things can be various such as
devoting oneself to a passion like art or music, which at the same time will
boost new encounters essential to our well-being; doing a sport to keep fit and
healthy, granting ourselves some small pleasures like a massage or a stroll in
the forest, reorganising our house, and of course spending time with our family
and friends through leisure time and holidays. Posted by Syb France
