In the future, nobody will buy printed newspapers books they will be able to read everything they want online without paying. To what extend do you agree or disagree with this statement?

The advent of the internet has changed our reading ways. While an increasing number of people have been choosing to gain information from online resources, I believe that the traditional ways of reading would not be replaced. There are several reasons why more and more people prefer online resources to gain information and knowledge.
Firstly
, people are able to get a variety of online resources without any cost. There are many websites providing free news and books for them to download it.
This
could help them to reduce living expenses.
Secondly
, printed paper materials required a lot of wood to produce. Nowadays, people are encouraged to protect the environment. If people could use online resources, it would help to reduce deforestation, thereby protecting our environment.
Finally
, using online resources only require a small place to store, while printed materials require

big storage to keep it.
On the other hand
, I think that the traditional reading method would not be fully replaced. Spending too much time online will damage people’s eyesight. Young students,
in particular
, a long screen time will cause eye strain, and the numbers of short-sighted children will increase significantly.
However
, the side effects of reading printed books would be much less than reading through electrical devices.
Also
, printed newspapers and books are published by professional writers and media, which are more reliable.
By contrast
, everybody can post any articles online at any time, and some information may cause misleading effects. In conclusion,
although
massive online resources are free and paperless, it can help to protect the environment, I reckon that the users of physical newspapers or books will decrease, which could not be totally replaced by online resources.

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
