- people who have been in prison = ex-prisoners
- good citizens = normal, productive members
- talk to = speak to
- dangers of committing a crime = discourage young people from breaking the law

Good work Tinh.

Some people who have been in prison=ex-prisoners

teenagers=young people

committing a crime=breaking the law

It is undeniable that most people who have been released from prison become a useful member of society. I completely agree with the view that these people are the most suitable speaker for young people to share about the negative consequences of being involved in a crime.

people who have been in prison = ex-prisoner
good citizen = productive member of society
talk to teenagers = speak to teenagers
committing a crime = breaking the law

ex-prisoner = people who have been in prison
normal, productive members of society = good citizens
speak to = talk to
breaking the law = committing crime

People who have been in prison = ex-prisons
Become good citizens later = become normal , productive members of society
To talk =to speak
Teenagers =young people
Committing a crime = breaking the law

Experience is the best teacher, and life in a prison is the harshest of them all. There is no doubt that some ex-prisoners become the become humble law abiding fellows and teenagers under their guidance will get first hand knowledge of the consequences in committing crimes.

People who become law abidind citizens after being released from the prison,should they be adressing the young generation as to discourage crime has sparked a heated debate in the society. I strongly disagree with this contention as majority of these people has high rate of racividism.

people who have been in prison = ex-prisoners; ex-offenders; a former prisoner; the newly-released prisoner
teenager = young people; young generations;

In conclusion, while the young people are astonished by the true stories of former inmate who were shared. I believe that those unusual experiences will impressions on their heart more than the alternatives.

In conclusion, while the young people are astonished by the real stories of ex-offenders who were shared. I believe that those unusual experiences will aspire on teens to guide road map directly, the aspirations more than the alternatives.

What if a person write less than 250 words in writing task 2 but the essay was quite effective with a vast range of vocabulary

i`d like to ask you some questions about the structure of my essay.
i think you categolize the essays to 4 kinds:1.discussion and opinion, 2.opinion, 3.2questions,4.problem and solution.my question is about that. although `to what extent do you agree or disagree` and `Discuss both views and give your opinion` seem to be popular, now you know other popular formulas of questions exist.
i want to know where they are classified and whether i should wrire my opinion(i agree, i disagree,i believe) and others` opinion(some~, others~), i mustn`t or i don`t have to.
the formulas of questions are follows

1.`Is it positive or negative?
 / Do you think it has more advantages or disadvantages?
ex,:An increasing number of people changed their career and place of residence several times in their life. Do you think it is a positive or negative development ?
2.`Do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages?`
ex:Some experts believe that it is better for children to begin learning a foreign language at primary school rather than secondary school. Do the advantages of this outweigh the disadvantages?
3.`Discuss the advantages and disadvantages.
 / What are the advantages and disadvantages?`
Ex,During the last ten years, the use of mobile phones has increased dramatically, making it possible to contact others almost anywhere and at anytime. Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of using mobile phones for communication both for the individual and for society as a whole.
ex:Childhood obesity is becoming a serious problem in many countries. Explain the main causes and effects of this problem, and suggest some possible solutions.

i always become confused thinking about them.

It is undeniable that being in a jail is a very hard experience, which someone has to go through to realize its consequences. People who have been in prison can become good and productive citizens. Ex-prisoners are the best to convey the experience and discourage teenagers from breaking the law.

people who have been in prison,
normal & productive member of the society
speak to, breaking the law, their experiences = committing

Hi Simon and everyone,

Here is my introduction! please feel free to make comments. Thank you!

It is believed that ex-prisoners who become good members after being back to society are the best examples to educate young people to prevent them from committing a crime. I completely agree that teenagers can definitely learn a lesson about negative consequences of crime from those ex-prisoners.
