Đề bài: More and more people in the city live in small space & without outdoor space. Do you think it is a negative or positive development?

Sample IELTS Writing Task 2 - 05/10/2017

As more and more people choose to live in the urban areas, they often tend to opt for small space without outdoor space for savings and convenience. I believe this trend brings both disadvantages and advantages.

Generally, one of the most apparent disadvantages of living in confined areas without outdoor space is the lack of room for physical exercise. With the given small space, children cannot have fun with their peers in physical activities and enjoy the garden settings. And lack of exercise may eventually lead to the negative impact on health. For example, a study from the Journal of Happiness Studies found that living space size has a direct positive correlation with one’s mentality, meaning that small spaces are more likely to hurt people with mental problems, let alone those with claustrophobia.

Nevertheless, many people still choose this kind of habitat because more modest space consumed means less money cost. Many people in Vietnam, particularly Ho Chi Minh city, choose to move out from their parents’ house at a young age. Without a good base of finance, a choice of an apartment may be their best offer. For example, a pretty big house in the countryside of Vinh Long may cost around 30,000 dollars, but the price of an apartment in Ho Chi Minh city can rocket to 100,000 dollars, while a small house can reach at least 200,000 dollars. Therefore, it is understandable why more and more people in the city live in small space without outdoor space.

All in all, I believe living in confined and non-outdoor space does have both pros and cons. However, in the end, it is safe to say the disadvantage outweighs the advantage.
