Homework: Essay on the Internet as a source of information

Here is this week's new assignment. Please bring it to class next week. Thanks!



You have 40 minutes to do this task. Please be prepared to read your essay.... Please comment on this statement:

These days, the Internet is a popular way to find out information. Some people, however, think this way of finding information has more drawbacks than advantages.

What can you say for and against finding information by using the Internet? Write 200-250 words using the following plan:
  • write an introduction (state the problem/topic)
  • list advantages and give reasons/examples
  • list disadvantages and give reasons/examples
  • draw a conclusion (give your opinion or a balanced consideration of the topic)

Exercise is adapted from Olga Afanasyeva, Virginia Evans, Victoria Kopylova, Practice Exam Papers for the Russian State Exam, 2010 Revised Edition, Moscow: Express Publishing/Prosveshchenie Publishers.
