题目：Withthe wide use of computers and the Internet, people can study and work from homewithout going to school or company. Do the advantages outweigh itsdisadvantages?
好写的题目都有一个共同的特点，就是贴近大家的学习工作生活，容易想到很多的素材和理由。如果你在家工作，你就不用每天去挤公交和地铁，浪费时间不说，还把人折磨得身心俱疲(save a great deal of time and energy)。另外，时间安排会更灵活(have a flexible schedule)。只要你能完成任务(meetthe deadline)，不管你几点开工，很多人早上9点脑子还没醒过来，而到了晚上他们反而工作起来倍精神。对于学生，如果在网上上课当然也很方便，除了免去上学放学的辛苦，还可以把课程录下来反复听(review the course content many times)，无论学霸学渣都可以按照自己的节奏来复习。
关于这种模式的弊端，主要有以下一些：让员工和学生都缺乏面对面的交流(face-to-face communication)，变得比较疏远(become alienated)。对于员工来说，少了老板的监督和约束(supervision and discipline)，很多人可能发现工作效率会降低。也许你上下班路上省了俩小时，结果还不够你淘宝、聊天和打游戏的。家里的环境让人放松(relaxing)，估计很多人都觉得在家里缺乏工作的氛围(atmosphere)。
最关键的一点是对于学生的影响。本篇范文用到了“剑8-1”的一些素材：学习的目的不只是学知识和获取信息(education is not about learning information andacquiring knowledge only)，还需要学习与人相处(interact with their peers)，学习尊敬老师(respect their teachers)，学习遵守纪律(obeyschool rules)，而这些都是远程教学(distance learning)所无法学到的。所以文章的结论是：在家工作和上课也许会变得越来越流行(popular)，但是这种模式只适合某些工作，而且它永远不会取代传统的学校(replace conventional schools)。
The advent of theInternet has made it possible for people to study and work from home. When weenjoy the convenience and flexibility of this new pattern, its negativeinfluence should also be noted.
Working from homeenables employees to have a flexible schedule. As long as they can meet thedeadline, they can choose any time in a day to do their work without startingor finishing at a regular time, as they do in conventional companies. In distancelearning, the course content can be recorded and replayed, which means studentscan review it as many times as they want. The most attractive part is thatemployees and students do not need to travel to the company and the schoolevery day, saving a great deal of time and energy.
However, this workpattern probably only suits some jobs that can be done on the computer such asdesigning, accounting, translation, etc. Due to the lack of face-to-facecommunication, colleagues are likely to become alienated, which may affect theircooperation. Another problem is the relaxing environment at home. Without disciplineand supervision, some employees may find it difficult to finish their tasks ontime.
The biggestconcern is perhaps for students, whose education is not about learninginformation and acquiring knowledge only. When staying in school, students willlearn how to interact with their peers, how to respect their teachers, how toobey school rules, etc. These elements are an indispensable part of education,but they will be missing in distance learning.
To sum up,learning and working via the Internet is a convenient way and it is expected tobecome more popular in the future. However, we should take other factors intoconsideration when we decide to work or study from home. In my view, thispattern will never replace conventional schools.
