____________________________

____________________________

Possible version:

Too much time on smartphones has brought about some negative changes for teenagers in the USA. For instance, instead of improving themselves, teenagers spend much of their time managing social media accounts, attempting to present a better image in the virtual world. In addition, more time spent using smartphones means less time spent studying, causing their studies to decline. Last but not least, the overuse of smartphones can ruin true relationships and reduce face-to-face conversations.

 

Discussion

How can teenagers use smartphones properly?

 

V. Task 3

How to use smartphones properly as a teenager?

From my point of view, the pros and cons of using smartphones largely depends on how we use them. To begin with, we should remind ourselves that smartphones are a great tool to enhance our lives – to learn, to create, to explore and expand, instead of controlling our lives. It is our own responsibility to avoid smartphone addiction. It’s necessary to manage our time wisely and not let smartphones compete with what is really important in our lives, like family or friendship. In addition, we can get help from our parents, who can help set rules and monitor our use of smartphones. To sum it up, by using phones wisely, we can become more disciplined and responsible.

 

VI. Writing task 4

Summary of the article

Possible version

It’s a common sight to see people using smartphones anywhere and everywhere, especially young people. Although smartphones bring great convenience for us, they still have some notable drawbacks.

    A study has shown that US teenagers’ self-development and social lives are

affected by the overuse of smartphones. Instead of improving themselves, teenagers spend much of their time on social media, attempting to present a better image in the virtual world. In addition, more time spent using smartphones can ruin true relationships and reduce face-to-face conversations.

From my point of view, the pros and cons of using smartphones largely depend on how we use them.

Nothing is more important than discipline

1. Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishments.

2. Nothing of importance is ever achieved without discipline.
