What are the advantages and disadvantages of traveling by air? Write 200-250 words on paper that you can give me. (I'll return it with written comments.)

Use the following plan:
  • write an introduction (state the problem/topic)
  • list the advantages and give reasons/examples
  • list the disadvantages and give reasons/examples
  • draw a conclusion (give your opinion or a balanced consideration of the topic)
