Assessment Task 1: Persuasive Essay

Topic: "Modern society has had a negative effect on Vietnamese traditions"

Society includes many parts such as government, people and family. Society has effect on all parts and it can change them quickly. Maybe it will be better or will have bad effects. In the war and several years later, Vietnamese always proud of culture and tradition which created difference between Vietnam and all countries in the world. Nowadays, Vietnam is the developing country. From the past to now, Vietnam has had many changes to adapt with the world. With changes, Vietnamese are living in modern society with comfort and convenience. Some people say that it makes them feel more relax, happy and satisfied with life than in the past.

On the other hand, they must do like that to live in modern society?

The second point is also important. It is education. Tradition of students in Vietnam is hard working and candidness. However, nowadays, students become lazy and cheat to pass exam. A university degree is a goal of students so they can do anything to get this degree such as buying a copy of the exam paper, paying money to hire person who can do exam for them (Arthurs, 2002). It will create them have a bad behaviour and a bad attitude. Husén (1987) states that education in school is very important, all influences can change their characters in life and in work. It also changes values and status of education in modern society. Besides that,
