WRITNG TASK 2
Should spend about 40 minutes on this task.
Write about the following topic:
As mass communication and transport continue to grow, societies are becoming more and more alike leading to a phenomenon known as globalization. Some people fear that globalization will inevitably lead to the total loss of cultural identity. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.
You should write at least 250 words.
Globalisation is a trend in which people in different countries tend to have the same things as a result of mass production. Some people might consider this as a good thing since it helps businesses to expand and things to become more affordable to consumers. However, I believe there are many side effects that should be taken into account. Based on that, I’m going to prove globalisation can lead to the loss of cultural identity.
First of all, considering the aspect of entertainment, people are listening to the same music worldwide. Some could argue that as long as people love a song, there should be no objection. However, in some cases, young people listen to a song just because it is what their friends are doing. This is resulted from globalisation which brings foreign cultures, especially those from Western countries, to many Asian countries.
Secondly, you can see people are wearing the same clothes in many different places. The reason could be the affordable prices of the clothes or it might be a fashion. Hence, the traditional clothes are becoming obsolete and being ignored.
Finally, young people are behaving similarly. As I said, globalisation brings foreign cultures to many countries. Some are good but not all of them. If these behaviours are not monitored carefully, the next generation can be stimulated with bad behaviours.
In conclusion, I strongly believe globalisation could lead to the loss of cultural identity for three reasons. First, the same music is being listened to everywhere. Secondly, people are wearing the same clothes. Next, the behaviours of young people are becoming the same.
Globalization is among the hottest topics that people are discussing these days. Obviously, globalization drastically changes our world from small issues such as what we drink to our values and cultures. However, whether it is good or bad or whether it promotes or destroys cultural identity is debatable. In my opinion, globalization helps to introduce cultures to the world rather than eliminate it.
When the technology revolution has not arisen, languages and cultures are limited in their original areas. Due to difficulties in transportation and communication, local people and information could hardly go far beyond countries and states’ boundaries. As a result, in this circumstance, local values and traditions could sustain from generation to generation with any competitive values. Yet the flip side of that was the culture could not spread across countries.
When globalization came, it might sweep away weak cultures and reshape stronger cultures. Nevertheless, it is individuals’ choices whether to adopt certain lifestyles; and the loss of culture identity in this case is not necessary a disaster as it makes people happier.
However, the more obvious positive aspect of globalization is that it introduces precious knowledge of one country, which was kept inside before, to the world. Chinese restaurants arise everywhere. English is studied all over the world. Pho, a Vietnamese traditional food, is enjoyed in Sydney. Coke is drunk by a monk in the Himalaya Mountain. Consequently, it is more accurate to say that globalization promotes cultures.
People can hate or love globalization; the fact is that it is still growing strong, follow its own way. Globalization puts many cultures in the same place, providing multiple choices. Even though a culture does not exist like before, it is still there for us to learn and admire.
