Fast food is very popular and saves time for busy working people. However, many experts say that it is not completely healthy. Do you know a person who has never been to McDonald’s? McDonald’s is
the leading global foodservice retailer serving millions of people in
more than 100 countries each day. McDonald’s restaurants sell what is
called "fast” or "junk” food — hamburgers, chips and so on. Such food is
very popular, especially with children and teenagers.
Personally, I adore hamburgers, cheeseburgers, apple pies, muffins
and fruit cocktails. This food is tasty, cheap and ubiquitous. What is
more, going to McDonald’s saves much time and effort. I don’t have to go
to a supermarket, prepare meals and wash the dishes when I eat out.
Besides, I like the holiday atmosphere of McDonald’s. There I can relax,
enjoy the food and celebrate some event with my friends and relatives.
But experts say that fast food makes people overweight and even obese
and elevates the risk of diabetes and cancer. If your food includes
hamburgers, chips, hot dogs, pizzas and fizzy drinks like Coke, Pepsi,
Sprite and others, you are facing a serious problem threatening your
health. Such food is full of chemical additives. For example, a can of
Coke contains about eight teaspoons of sugar and artificial sweeteners.
Moreover, there is a risk of food poisoning.
To sum it up, we should think more about our health. We should try to
avoid fast food and eat more fruit and vegetables. Those people who
don’t care about what they eat may face serious problems. So let’s
remember about our health and make the right choice.

Some people say that genetically modified (GM) food is dangerous to
their health. Others believe that it is absolutely harmless and has a
number of advantages. Nowadays people are getting more and more concerned about the food
they eat as it is closely connected with the way they look and feel.
That is why there are so many arguments about the safety of genetically
Genetically modified crops have been developed by changing the
plant’s genetic structure in order to help the plant resist against
different diseases or produce larger crops. Personally, I try not to buy
GM food as there is no scientific conclusion so far to prove its safety
for human consumption. We don’t know what unforeseen consequences there
might be. I prefer not to risk my health because scientists are not
sure if GM food is absolutely harmless or not.
However, a lot of people are not worried about the negative influence
of GM food on their health. Besides, producers of this food say that it
has a number of advantages in terms of price, durability and
nutritional value. They also say there is no risk to human health,
although possible side effects connected with the use of GM products
have not been studied.
Can we trust producers of GM food? I don’t think so. Unfortunately,
in Russia the law does not prohibit the use of GM products. I believe
that it’s up to you to decide whether to buy GM food or not. Anyway,
producers of this food must mark their products if they contain GM

Some people say that food is our friend, while others think that it may become an enemy. Can we live without food? The answer is definitely "no”. Food is
essential to our body which is continually wasting and requires new
energy. Experts say that food has some special powers that can control
our lives, for better or for worse.
To my mind, food is our friend if it is healthy and taken with due
regard to the exercise and waste of the body. I believe that if you eat
the right food, you can manage your mood and boost your brainpower. For
example, when I feel blue, I treat myself to a bar of chocolate or an
ice-cream and become more cheerful and energetic. When I am to take a
test, I eat a handful of nuts or a banana because such food helps me
However, sometimes food may become a real enemy. Unfortunately, some
people don’t pay attention to what they eat. If their diet includes fast
food and fizzy drinks, they can do much harm to their health. People
who are fond of hamburgers and Coca-Cola often suffer from diabetes,
cancer and tooth decay. Moreover, they may become overweight and even
To sum up, food that contains vitamins gives you a psychological lift
and helps you improve your health. But food that has a hefty amount of
chemical additives, fat, sugar or caffeine makes you fat and draws
energy away from your brain. I strongly feel that if you take control of
your food, you will be able to take control of your life.

Nowadays more and more people become vegetarians. Others say they can’t do without meat or fish. Being a vegetarian is rather popular nowadays. Some people say they
don’t eat meat and fish because it is healthy. Others follow the example
of their favourite actor or musician. Is it worth becoming a
Personally, I think that people should eat both meat and fish. Our
ancestors would not have survived if they hadn’t hunted and fished. Meat
and fish are nourishing and they contain vitamins that make us
stronger. Besides, fish is good for our brains.
However, quite a lot of people say it is cruel to eat animals. They
feel sorry for pigs, chickens or rabbits that are kept in cages.
Vegetarians are convinced that killing animals is a crime. So their food
consists of vegetables, fruit and nuts. They say that such a diet does
much good to their health and contains all the vitamins, minerals and
protein they need. But I think that if all people eat only plants, there
will not be enough food for everybody. What is more, most fruit and
vegetables are harmful because they are full of pesticides.
So it is up to you to decide whether to become vegetarian or not.
Personally, I believe that we should eat different food but at the same
time we should know where to stop.

первый взгляд может показаться, что написать эссе (сочинение) на
английском языке – это чрезвычайно сложно. Но если знать и соблюдать
некоторые правила, то написание эссе (сочинения) будет не таким уж и
Итак, при написании эссе (сочинения) учитывайте следующие моменты:
формального стиля письма. Помните, что сокращения типа don’t, can’t,
I’m, it’s – это не формальный стиль. Также избегайте восклицательных
знаков, что тоже не соответствует нейтральности формального стиля.
Следите за лексикой и не используйте таких фраз, как: well, to tell the
truth и др. Эти фразы не соответствуют формальному стилю.

первом абзаце представьте проблему, которую будете рассматривать в эссе.
Чтобы правильно это сделать, переформулируйте тему. Не повторяйте тему,
а переформулируйте ее!
рассмотрите проблему с двух сторон – найдите два-три аргумента,
поддерживающих одну точку зрения и столько же – в пользу другой. Не надо
писать все аргументы, которые приходят в голову. Выберите два-три самых
весомых и изложите их.
свое отношение к проблеме. В двух-трех предложениях объясните, почему
вы так думаете. Не повторяйте дословно уже приведенную аргументацию.
- В последнем абзаце сделайте вывод по проблеме.
за объемом эссе (сочинения). Принцип "чем больше, тем лучше” здесь
неприменим. Эксперт, проверяющий вашу работу жестко отсчитывает нужное
количество слов и проверяет только тот объем, который укладывается в
норму. Эссе (сочинение) менее установленного объема вообще не
проверяется и никак не оценивается.
