Topic Do you think more people will stop eating meat in the future?
I think more people will stop eating meat in the future for a couple of reasons.
Firstly, raising animals to eat produces a lot of greenhouse effect gases that will exacerbate global warming. Also, it takes a lot of water and grain to produce meat, especially beef and pork. Specialists have warned that it will lead to a water shortage and a food crisis. Considering the world population is growing, it is hard for us to sustain a meat-eating practice.
Secondly, technology helps more people to become vegetarian. Many manufacturers are developing artificial meat to cater to people who are environmentally-friendly and health-conscious. The artificial meat is all plant-based and better for the environment. Influential people, such as artists and professional athletes, support these macrobiotic foods. They inspire people to eat less meat.
For these reasons, I think more people will eat less meat in the future. (147 words)
Some people think that human cloning should be legal. However, human cloning should not be allowed because it has risks, social and ethical issues.
Human cloning technology is still in an experimental stage. This means that mothers and babies have a high risk of disease and death. According to scientists, cloned animals are more likely to have a short life span and some kind of defects. If they were born with such abnormality, who would be responsible for them?
Cloning technology can also collapse the traditional family system. For example, technology makes it possible for an individual to create their own clone and raise it as their own child. If it really happens, are they a parent and a child, or identical twins? This kind of practice will surely confuse our current social system.
Furthermore, human clones might be abused if they were allowed to be produced for the benefit of humans. For instance, they might be treated like a slave or livestock. Also, they might be mass-produced to give their organs to humans for organ transplants. Like in sci-fi movies, clone troops or human-shaped biological weapons might become a reality.
For these reasons mentioned above, human cloning technology is quite dangerous for our society. That is why I think human cloning should be banned. (215 words)
Some people believe that video games have a bad effect on children, but I do not think so. I have two reasons as follows.
Firstly, video games are a kind of entertainment like movies and books. They are fun and beautiful. Children can learn many things by playing video games.
Also, children can make friends because most children like video games. They can play together and talk a lot about the games. In conclusion, video games have a good effect on children because they are good entertainment and children can make friends easily. (93 words)

Casinos are addictive. People might go bankrupt. They might lose family and friends and suffer mental illnesses.
The crime rate might increase because anti social groups are associated with casinos.
Although many people were against the introduction of casinos, the Japanese government passed the bill to construct them. Despite this, I do not think casinos are good for Japan’s society for the following reasons.
Firstly, casinos are so addictive that people cannot stop until they lose everything. Some of them might have a lot of debt. Those people are more likely to have mental problems such as depression and insomnia. The increase in such people will cause social anxiety.
Secondly, the crime rate might increase. Casinos are closely associated with anti-social groups like gangs and terrorists. They tend to make every effort to earn money at casinos. As a result, ordinary people might get involved in crimes.
For these reasons above, I do not think Japan should introduce casinos.(138 words)
TOPIC Do you think the construction of casinos is good for society?
Some people are strongly against the construction of casinos. However, I think the construction of casinos will contribute to the revitalization of tourism industry and help boost the local economy.
Firstly, casinos are great tourist attractions and therefore it is quite common to have casinos in major cities. Take Singapore for instance. There are several casinos there. Not only wealthy people but also young tourists enjoy them. Thus, casinos attract tourists and contribute to the revitalization of the tourism industry.
Secondly, the construction of casinos creates more jobs for local people. Casinos usually include hotels, restaurants, malls, and theaters. Those facilities create employment opportunities for local people and businesses, and have a positive impact on local community.
For these reasons above, the construction of casinos benefits tourism industry and local community. (131 words)
学校で習ったことを忘れる Students will forget what they studied at school.
宿題がなかったら、家で勉強しない Students will never study at home if they don’t have homework.
学校の授業時間が短すぎるから宿題が必要だ Homework is necessary because class time is too short.
繰り返し同じことをすることで、しっかり学べる Students will learn better by repeating.
I think homework is necessary because the class time is too short. In most schools, each class is about 40 minutes. Students can’t learn everything with such a short time. Also, they will forget what they studied if they don’t have homework. They should practice repeatedly at home. That is why homework is necessary. (54語）

宿題は子どもにストレスを与えている Homework is stressful for students.
親の負担になる Parents also feel stress because they have to help their children with their homework.
I do not think homework is necessary because homework is stressful for students. If there is no homework, they can relax at home. Also, students should spend more time on things they are interested in after school. For example, they should go to soccer practice or piano practice. That is why homework is not necessary.
