First Draft

The line graph shows information on four different types of car ownership per household in Britain from 1971 to 2007. Overall, it can be seen that there was a rise of car ownership amongst those owning two and three or more cars during this period; while there was a steady trend for those having one car but a dramatic decrease in the number of not owning one. According to the graph, there was a dramatic decrease of no car ownership in Britain, from approximately 48% in 1971 to 23% in 2007. Besides, the amount of one-car-ownership maintained at quite a similar level throughout the years (around 45%). Nevertheless, there was a significant leap of two car ownership between 1979 and 1990 and it continued to rise up to 28% in 2007. The amount of people having three or more cars rose steadily as well and reached its peak in 2006 with 7% then dropped slightly in 2007.

Buying a House

In many countries, people think that having one’s own home is better than renting somewhere, which could really be true. I somehow agree with this point of view because living in your proper house, you can economize the monthly cost for the rental expenses; without mentioning the liberty and the privacy of doing things that are limited when you hire a place somewhere. The main reason why I think this might be the case in many places is because once you are the owner of your house, (either you save enough money to buy it, get the loan from the bank or even inherit it), you accomplish one of those “big things” on the A-list. So it’s definitely a positive situation. It means that you will find it easier to settle down and having your own family in your own house. We have a proverb in Vietnamese “An cư lạc nghiệp” which means you have to have a place to live peacefullly to be able to have a harmonious live so that you could concentrate completely on your work. Another reason why I support the idea is the fact that if you have a place for yourself, you have the feeling of attachement. In other word, it’s your home. Especially for those who love interior design like me, I find it neccesary to spend time on house decoration. To illustrate, I spent hours and hours to choose the right colour, plain the doors and the wall, choose the furnitures and try to make the place as comfortable, convenient and cozy as it could be. And once your guests arrive at your domicile, they would at least have a glimpse of the character of the owner. Thirdly, you can manage your finance painless as you don’t need to pay every month all the time so you can save money. Even if you borrow money from the bank to buy the house, you will have to pay every month for a certain amount of time then the house will be yours. Essentially, you won’t need to worry about the increase of the rental or the duration of renting. Even there are great benefits of owning a house, in some occidental minds, nowadays, people tend to rent a house because they don’t believe that their life should somewhat be connected to “material things”. For instance, they need a place to stay and sleep but they live to experience life, to discover the world so they prefer to invest their money on travelling but not a house. The notion of “home” is also wherever or whenever they can be with their loved ones. As simple as that! Moreover, they don’t think of the house could be a heritage later on for their kids. In conclusion, I still think that owning a home is a positive thing to do. In Vietnam, there are a lot of people choosing this way or working their hardest to earn enough money for their house project. We respect different choices but having a place and are able to show the true colour of your home through your creation is one of the most spectacular thing to do in your path of life, making life meaningful and flourishing.
