Some people believe that teenagers should concentrate on all school subjects. But others believe that teenagers should focus on the subject that they are good at or they find most interest. To what extend do you agree or disagree.

It is felt by some that youngsters ought to be raised in modernized urban settings, while others prefer countryside as it offers a healthier lifestyle.
However
, in my opinion the facilities and the opportunities that city life has to offer, simply cannot be found in rural settings. Admittedly, countryside encourages a healthier lifestyle. Children are able to spend the majority of their spare time outdoors in the nature, which defeats the sedentary lifestyle
that is
associated with city life.
As a result
, not only they grow up to be fitter in a cleaner, pollution-free environment, but they
also
become more connected with the nature around them.
However
, rural areas can only offer so much in regards to children’s future prospects and eventually they have to move to cities for better opportunities.
On the other hand
, urban settings provide children with plethora of opportunities. Extracurricular activities are part of curriculum in multiple schools in the city that allow students to participate in an array of different sports and activities.
This
gives students an opportunity to unfold, perhaps, their hidden talents.
Additionally
, metropolitan areas incorporate a variety of differently-abled institutions. As
such
, parents can enrol their special children to get the best education possible, which might not be available in rural settings.
Finally
, advanced technology offers advanced medical services. If youngsters get sick, they can be immediately treated in modern medical facilities with the best available treatments and equipment.
However
,
such
developments are not readily available in the suburbs. In conclusion,
although
Suggestion
despite
being raised in the clean environment of the countryside provides some benefits, I believe cities have more opportunities to provide children with that the suburbs cannot compete with.

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.
