A government spends money on all adults after 25-year-old on a training course for the most up-to-date skills at workplace. Do you think it is effective? Why or why not? (2018.11.4)
这道题目询问我们对于政府花钱为25岁加的人们提供最新工作技能培训这一措施的看法。本文选择不支持，也就是认为这一措施无法实现一个好的结果，理由有两个：1. 培训课程前期不容易开展；2. 开课后无法保证25岁以上观众的听课质量。因此，本文采用四段式结构，开头段表明总观点，主体段分别从开课难度和听课难度两方面来进行解释，结尾段重申总观点。
It is really a dilemma for a government to decide how to improve the whole nation’s workforce. Some politicians hold the view that a work-related training course for adults over 25 years old will be a potent approach, but I deem that it may not be as effective as they wish.
Primarily, the organization of this course is no easy matter.【中心句】Prior to training workers, the government are supposed to design a syllabus about the most up-to-date skills in a field.【状语前置】These employable skills are evolving at a staggering rate, which means the training materials have to update correspondingly. Who can shoulder the duty of timely modification? Of course those experts in the filed. 【设问，自问自答】In this case, it is inevitable for the government to hire those experts at any cost. Then, how can these lessons be disseminated? Will those experts arrange monthly industry conferences in each city or should they offer online courses? On the one hand, it is said that online courses are easier to be conducted. The government can put each training video online through some platforms, among which Coursera and MOOC are two popular ones for learners. Compared with uploading online videos, launching lecture tours is unquestionably toilsome. On the other hand, having classes in a large auditorium provides more opportunities to discuss than just listening to videos online individually.
Indeed, if the government calls on all adults over 25 to take part in a course, there is no doubt that at least the vast majority will respond actively. The logic is simple. 【短句起过渡作用】Most people are patriotic and believes in the party in power, thereby complying with government policies. 【结果状语】This compulsory course may take its effect by attracting a large number of the working class. However, it is uncertain that these learners can fully dedicate themselves to studying.【中心句】According to a survey, nearly half of young adults are married when they reach 25. This marital status inhibits them from spending much time taking a course. Most of their free time is devoted to their spouse or even their baby. Thus, family issues will distract these young adults from listening to lectures attentively.
Overall, it is not advisable for the government to allocate budget on training courses for all adults over 25.
