SECTION C
[15 marks]
[Time suggested: 25 minutes]
Questions 21 -27 are based on this article
CHILDHOOD- the best time of your life?
Some people say that childhood is the best time of your life. However, being a child has
both its advantages and disadvantages. On the plus side, you have very few responsibilities.
For example, you dont have to go to work, shop, cook or pay bills. This means you have plenty
of free time to do whatever you want - watch TV, play computer games, go out with friends,
involve in sports and pursue other hobbies. Public transport, cinema and sports centres also
cost much less for children. In short, being a child is an exciting time in life.
However, for every plus there is a minus. For one thing, you have to spend five days a
week, from Sunday to Thursday at school. Studying usually means you have to do a lot of
homework, attend extra classes and sit for exams. On top of that, you need to fulfil your parents
expectation and pass with flying colours.
What is more, you may have a lot of free time but you are rarely allowed to do whatever
you want. You usually have to ask your parents permission before doing anything - from
shopping in town to staying out late.
Last but not least, although there are often cheaper prices for children, things are still
expensive. Some parents are not always generous in giving pocket money. The reality is that
sometimes there is not enough money to satisfy a childs need.
To sum up, some people see childhood as the best time in their lives. However in reality
children do not have choices to do what they want. As children grow up, they will soon realize
that they have more responsibilities to bear.
