Academic Language Week 16 - Adult Interview

There should be more restriction on credit card use. Part of the reason that we should have more restrictions is because of the ECONOMY and its current problems. People were borrowing more than their actual INCOME. A lot of people don’t know of the dangers of credit card use since in schools we don’t teach FINANCE as a required course in school. Peoples own lack of knowledge led to one of the greatest recessions of our time. I believe that better education along with more restrictions on the use of credit cards will lead to better financial health and a better nation.

Academic Language Week 15 - Cell Phones

It’s sometimes okay to use your cell phone while you are driving, it just depends. For example, someone calls you and you want to answer it you can just put it on speaker phone. Instead of having one hand on the phone and the other on the steering wheel, which is very dangerous. Another example worse comes to worse you get in a car crash and you have no one around then your phone can your only way to get help. Also, people a day’s have Bluetooth’s to use instead of distracting others when are supposed to paying attention to the road. Therefore like I said it goes both ways.

Anyways, towards the end i felt really good because i was doing the right things and everyone was so happy for me. Know that its been over a year i fell bad because i cant get good grades anymore.
