Some people prefer living in a small town. Others prefer to live in a big city. Which place would you prefer to live?
Personally, I believe that living in a small town is much better than in a big city. Nowadays, I live in a big city and I miss my birthplace, which is a good and beautiful small town. I have some reasons to explain why I prefer that.
First of all, in a small town you don’t have troubles with traffic. In big cities the traffic is one of the most negative points. I can recall when I was living in an inner city, I spent ten minutes to go to school by bus. Now, when I’m living in a metropolis and I spend thirty minutes to cover the same distance.
In addition to the traffic troubles, it’s important to consider the finances. Everything is expensive in big cities. For example: restaurant, cinema, gym, public transportation, drugstore and others.
Finally, life span in a small town is longer than in a big city. Currently, stress is a significant cause of death. In big cities, the noise, the pollution, the traffic may affect your way of life.
Concluding, based on the arguments stated above, life in a small town is very good. How I said Nowadays I live alone in an apartment in a big city, but I really miss my family and the small town way of life.
andrelauarr, either base your text on solid facts or say "in my opinion". For example, when you say:
"...in a small town you don’t have troubles with traffic", you have to remember that in many towns in Britain, for example, you can hit a big traffic jam during the rush hour, specially in coastal towns. Some small towns down the coast in Brazil are the same. Can you drive in a small beach town during holidays easily?
You must not generalize some facts. You can say: "in my opinion", "in many cases", "often", depending on what you want to express.
