■Question
It has recently been announced that a large shopping center may be built in your neighborhood. Do you support or oppose this plan? Why? Use specific reasons and details to support your answer.

■Answer
Althogh building a large shopping center in my neighborhood will make more and more people in this area convinient, I personaly oppose this plan for the following reasons.

The reason some people want to build such a large shopping center in their neighborhood is that they think that their life will be more convinient than before especially transportation. For example, a bus stop may be put in their neighborhood, an express train may stop at their station and a road in the area may be developed. Of course, also, I hope that transportation is developed in my neighborhood.

However, I can expect easily the situation that building a large shopping center would make people in the area cause a lot of environmental problems including making people cause physical problems. For example, a large shopping center was built in the area where one of my friends lives five years ago. After that, the environmental condition around the area continues to change extreamly. The change made the area durty, noisy, and destroying environment. In fact, though I have visited the area several times, I do not believe the terible condition on this area. Also, now, people in the area are seriously suffering from thses problems. Actually, a number of claim to improve the environment in the area has been increased more than double. I think strongly that people in our area should not take a same mistake again.

In conclusion, I definitely oppose the plan to built a large shopping center in my neighborhood.
