Imagine that you are doing a project on ways of learning a foreign language in Zetland. You have found some data on the subject-the results of the opinion polls (see the diagram below)
Comment on the data in the table and give your opinion on the subject of the project.
Write 200-250 words
Use the following plan:
- make an opening statement on the subject of the project
- select and report 2-3 facts
- make 1-2 comparisons where relevant
- outline a problem that can arise with learning a foreign language and suggest a way of solving it
- conclude by giving your opinion on the importance of speaking a foreign language.
Recent studies show that fireign languages are becoming more and more popular. To learn more about it, I have found some information on what what ways of learning foreign languages are used by people in Zetland. As a part of my project, I have analyzed these data and come across some interesting findings.
According to the data I have found in the diagram, humans in Zetland have a lot of ways to study foreign languages. The majority of the respondents prefer attending a course or working with a tutor (51%) whereas writing a penpal in a foreign language is the least popular method (1%). Listening to music is also quite popular among people in Zetland, making up 26% of the respondents respectively.
It is noticeable that there is a substantial difference between the most and the least favored ways of studying foreign languages, Attending a course or working with a tutor is at 50 times more popular than writing a penpal in a foreign language. The difference between people who prefer watching films in a foreign language and chatting with international friends is also considerable. It is less than 5% which is surprising because both of these approaches are not favored by humans in Zetland.
Although there are a lot of tricks of studying foreign languages, people can come across some problems learning them. For example, people do not have enough practice of speaking. The best solution is to find a native speaker to talk to every day.
In conclusion, I firmly believe that languages are essential for people because it gives more opportunities for finding a well-paid job and visiting other countries.
