Nowadays, the question of young people studying a

language
from primary school has received a great deal of public attention.
Although
this
suggestion is not without disadvantages, I strongly believe that the advantages will be far more significant. On the one hand, there still exists a variety of drawbacks

Second
,
children
may get confused because of learning many languages at the same
time
and
this
could have a negative impact on their development.
For instance
, it is argued that bilingual
children
develop the ability to talk more slowly than monolingual kids.
On the other hand
, there have numerous positive effects of studying a foreign
language
from the primary level of
children
’s development.
First
, it is evident that kids can learn faster at a young age because they are less self-conscious and shy.
This
means they could easily pronounce the right sounds and their foreign
language
will be enlarged most naturally.

Thus

As a result

children
learning languages is not a hard process as it is for adults. In conclusion, I totally agree that learning foreign languages at primary school will be more beneficial even though there are some tiny disadvantages.

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
