To Cultural Expeditions,
My name is Angelo and I have been living in Ireland for a year and a half. I saw the advertisement regarding the voluntary work and that caught me instantly! Voluntary work is something that has been on my mind since I was a teenager; two cousins of mine decided to do it and it became such an outstanding example of civility for me. The way they were helping poor people in Africa was quite moving and from that moment I knew I would end up doing the same!
I do not have any experience involving voluntary work. However, I believe that it would not be a big deal, since my willingness to help and to share is immense.
Since I am Brazilian, I would really appreciate if you sent me there for around two months; I am already familiar with the people and the language, which in my opinion would make things really easier for everybody.
I look forward to hearing from you!
Thank you very much!
Should children be taught sex education in schools?
Lately, we have been facing an increasing polemic regarding whether sex education should be taught or not in schools. I strongly disagree with that kind of class. It is widely known that the promiscuity among children and teenagers has been growing in the last decades: some researches pointed out that the youth have been having their first sexual relationship earlier than ever. Moreover, it is already very clear to most young people how the sex works: they learn with their friends, through internet and even by watching television.
Sex education is something that should be first explained by the parents, at the right time and with the proper words. Therefore, the intimacy between parents and children would be enhanced and they would become closer to each other.
Creating a specific subject called "sex education" would be an extreme exaggeration. In my point of view, sex education should only be a part of the biology studies and it should be taught as any other part of that discipline. With several subjects to be taught by the teachers, the weekly schedule is already too tight to be modified by adding another discipline and perhaps excluding some vital one.
Nowadays sex has been being overestimated. There is no point in shortening the mathematics, history or literature classes to add sex education. The youth have to go to school to acquire useful knowledge for their lives to grow as people and not as sex machines.
Artful Dodger escreveu:(1) If I were to send a letter applying for a job (even a voluntary unpaid one) I would not salute the receiver with a 'Hi there!'; it sounds too personal for me. I would rather choose something like 'Dear sir or madam' or 'To whom it may concern', but it's your decision.
Artful Dodger escreveu:3) Consider revising the last sentence, because it sounded too strong for me. Opinions apart, sex education classes would hardly turn anyone into a sex machine.
