英検1級2次試験:Are people in today’s world becoming more socially isolated?

Are people in today’s world becoming more socially isolated?

(現代人は社会的に孤立しつつあるか?)

 

I’m against the opinion that people in modern societies are becoming more socially isolated.

I have two reasons to support my opinion.

 

First, we can communicate with different people by using various kinds of tools on the Internet. For example, social networking services often help shy or isolated people connect with other people. Also, by taking advantages of meeting tools such as Skype or Zoom, we can have more opportunities to get in touch with friends or family members that we don’t often see regularly.

 

Second, as time goes by, society is coming to allow us to confide our worries or anxieties to professionals. For example, nowadays most schools hire at least one counselor. Students with serious problems can have opportunities to think about how to overcome them by talking with counselors and schoolteachers. Also, Japanese government provide citizens with opportunities to talk about their worries toward something by using telephone counselling services for free at any time.

 

In conclusion, I don’t think that people in today’s world are becoming more socially isolated than they used to be. (178 words)
