Due to recent developments and advancement in technology and transportation, travelling around the globe and commuting to work from distant areas has become abundantly easier. While I believe it forces the many people to adapt to situations

allows many people to explore outside of their comfort zones and experience cultures
besides
their own. The liberation of being able to live and work anywhere around the world,
although
a luxury to some, to others the constant fear of having to adapt to new environments is overwhelming. Every country, wherever you go around the world demands social interaction, and
this
is not easily done when one is not used to the language and social cues of a new land.
For example
, in Japan it is socially unacceptable to enter a house with your shoes on,
this
is seen as a sign of disrespect.
However

forcing myself into social isolation. Undoubtedly, the ability to adapt to certain cultural scenarios causes a great disadvantage to the development of technology and transportation.
This
being said, I believe that the progress that has been made in communication tool and transport vehicles has greater advantages than disadvantages. The ability to be anywhere on

earth in a blink of an eye is now possible because of these developments. Lands which used to take humans months to travel to can now be reached within hours. Many families had to plan their trips months in advance and cut their household expenses in order to afford their annual holidays.
Now because

Therefore

fact, it
has become extremely easy due to transport abilities and all the different types of communication.
Although
one disadvantage is that you must quickly adapt to new environments you're placed in, My opinion is that the advantage of accessibility and the cheap trips that can be obtained are far greater.

Support ideas with relevant, specific examples

Examples make your writing easier to understand by illustrating points more effectively.

Examples, if used properly, not only help you get higher marks for ‘Task Response’ but also for ‘Coherence’.

When giving examples it is best to put them after your main idea or topic sentence. They can be used in the middle of supporting sentences or they can be used to start a new sentence. There is no rule for where exactly to give examples in essays, logically they would come after your main idea/topic sentence or just after a supporting sentence.

Linking words for giving examples:

  • for example
  • for instance
  • to illustrate this
  • to give a clear example
  • such as
  • namely
  • to illustrate
  • take, for example
