英検1級2次試験:Agree or disagree: Not enough importance is given to the study of history

Agree or disagree: Not enough importance is given to the study of history

(賛成か反対か:歴史学習に十分な重点が置かれていない)

 

I’m of the opinion that schools should put more emphasis on educating history.

I have two reasons to support my opinion.

 

First, we can gain knowledge about the ways of thinking that people in the past had. For example, we can learn about some mistakes such as warfare, dictatorship, and so on. In addition, we can better understand about how people made efforts to maintain Japan’s prestige as a nation. With the knowledge, we’re able to appreciate current peaceful daily lives and think more about what direction that the country should take in the future.

 

Second, it can be one of the communication tools with people all over the world. As the society becomes more globalized, we’re now having more opportunities to talk with people with different backgrounds. If we can explain the positive sides of Japanese tradition to other people, then we’ll be able to have more opportunities to promote the prestige of Japan as a nation to other countries.

 

To sum up, I believe that people in modern societies should study more about history. (176 words)

 

【内容の要約】

結論:Agree

①過去の人々の考え方に触れることができる

②(特に海外の方々との)コミュニケーションツールになる

 

トピックの解釈が難しい(紛らわしい)ですね。

歴史学習に十分な重点が置かれていない→人々はもっと歴史を勉強すべきだ」と解釈して、歴史学習のメリットを2種類の観点から記述する構成にしました。

 

内容は、昨日公開した「古典文学は現代の授業で通用するか?」というトピックの原稿を若干アレンジしただけで、ほぼ同一になっています。
