    (Sample)

    These days many people choose to live or work in other countries, which has been made possible because of the convenience of air travel and modern communications. I believe that this has more benefits than drawbacks.

    The disadvantage of this development is the distance that is put between family members. If a person moves away it is true that air travel and devices such as skype mean that communication and contact can be maintained. However, it is likely that a person will only be able to return one or two times a year during holidays, and speaking on skype or via email is not the same as face-to-face contact.

    Despite this, there are significant advantages it can bring to people’s lives. Firstly, it means that people have the opportunity to see other parts of the world and the way people live. For example, people from the West often go to work in Asia or the Middle East and visa-versa. This enriches many people’s lives as they get to learn about other languages, traditions, cultures and different ways of working from their own country.

    In addition to this, on a wider level it may also benefit other countries. If someone moves abroad for work, it is usually because their skill is required there. To illustrate, nurses and Doctors often move to work in hospitals in other countries when there is a shortage, so this is very valuable to the place they move to.

    I would therefore argue that although there are disadvantages of the current trend to live and work abroad, they are outweighed by the advantages. It can enrich people’s lives and lives of the people in the countries that they move to.

    With the advent of sophisticated modern technology along with the developments in communication have enabled the people to pursue their careers and also they can reside anywhere in the world which have transformed the human lives significantly . I believe that the advantages of this statement definitely outweigh the disadvantages.

    On the one side of the coin, because of the contemporary epoch of technology , people would be separated from their family . This is due to the fact people would have to travel overseas for their work ,they would not be able to see their loved ones. Considerably, Not only the latest version of applications such as Skype as well as Facetime had enabled the people to communicate but also people can travel via airplanes to meet their family. However, travelling is only possible once or twice in a year and personal touch cannot be maintained without having face -to-face contact.<div>

    <div><div>

    On the other side of the coin, the latest era of development has significant advantages . Firstly , people can explore employment avenues .Owing to the fact , they can find the jobs according to their demands additionally commoners while travelling and working off-shores can have remarkable learning opportunities which may eventually enable them to learn different cultures as well traditions of the nation.

    Furthermore, seeing this on a larger scale , automation has enabled the people to have international exposure. This can be substantiated by the fact that whenever people work in extra-territorial regions, they have an edge over other others which may lead to better career growth. For instance , people working in International Companies such as Google , Facebook and the likes are considered to have better better growth prospects.

    In conclusion, I would like to say that even-though there are some disadvantages of people working across the world , which can sometimes cause social dis-connections with the family and these are outweighed by the advantages.

    The recent automation in technology and transportation allows the people to live as well as work in any part of the world without any restriction but subject to fulfillment of eligibility criteria. This development has more positive benefits than its negative consequences.

    The biggest advantage is that people who face shortage of jobs in their native country can travel to foreign country which recognize their skills and talents. Due to this factor today, individuals choose to stay in a developed country for livelihood and enjoy higher standard of living. This is also evidenced by latest report of Michael Page organization which state that 24% of doctors and engineers in USA are from countries like India, Japan and China. Nowadays developing countries has started to follow the culture, practices, and policies of developed countries for better infrastructure, health care and education which result in benefit to its society.

    Despite this, it also has drawbacks as society start losing interest in their culture and adopting foreign culture as they think they look rich and modern if they follow other culture and values. Admittedly its biggest disadvantage is that due to this technology development people left their home and move to other country where they need to live without their family even though they can contact them over the phone or social networking site but to stay together feeling is always missing.

    To summarize, I should say that even though there are few disadvantages like staying without family or leaving our culture and values, but these issues cannot overrule the major advantages such as employment, better infrastructure and resources in foreign country.

    There is no doubt that approximately fifty percent of the people aspire to work in other countries , which is made possible with the help of modern aviation and communication .

    On one hand , moving so far away could bring a gap within ones relationships with their family and friends . The present-day softwares can help maintain the connection but meeting in-person is most likely to overpower the same .

    However , The new environment will provide an opportunity to develop life skills . This helps us achieve an exposure which would be the right fit for holistic development ! Learning about a new language , culture , ethics and traditions of a country would expand our horizon . One such example is when I learnt that in Germany the work is emailed directly without the need for a meeting and that helped me manage my time at my current office .

    Furthermore ,working in another country is also considered as adding an asset to the nation . Living with people of contrasting backgrounds teaches us to find a solution to every problem and to understand their perspective on common subjects .

    Taking everything into consideration , I would argue that the advantages of this development do outweigh the disadvantages as moving to different counties would provide a better quality of life .

    The freedom to work and live a settled life in any nook and corner of the world is being accessed by numerous people as technology and development in communication science is increasing rapidly in contemporary society.

    In my opinion, the advantages outweigh the disadvantages in such a situation. Cultural and social intermixing occurs as a result of migration, allowing people all over the world to enrich their knowledge of the world’s cultures. It permits people to be more welcoming, empathetic and open-minded towards new customs and traditions as portrayed by immigrants. For example, settling with a family in a foreign country is deemed to be extremely beneficial by scientists as biracial and multiracial children are healthier and significantly contribute to the process of human evolution. Intercultural and interracial interaction along with international exposure also allows people to be more accepting

    However, on the other hand, ‘brain-drain’ is a word commonly associated with leaving one’s country for work or educational purposes. This shortcoming of relocation of people has led to devastating outcomes, especially in the third world countries. The developing countries are hard hit when native citizens immigrate to different countries, running after alluring and tempting job offers. For instance, nowadays, most developed nations like the USA and the UK are becoming saturated with students and other employees seeking better opportunities and luxuries from all over the world.

    To conclude, it can be overall resolved that movement and settlement of people in other countries is beneficial and, to some extent, also an absolute necessity to help in the progression of the human race.

    The world has virtually shrunken and is now being referred to as a “global village”. There are options now which allow people to move to different countries, start a life or a business there. This has become possible because of the tremendous progress in the fields of travel, communication and technology. This essay will shed light on both the advantages and disadvantages of migration and emphasize on why i believe that the pros overshadow the cons here.

    There are a few disadvantages associated with mass migration. One important reason is the rise in population in places where people decide to move to. When there is a rise of population in a place, there is simultaneous need to cater to their needs like transportation, which contributes significantly to the level of air and noise pollution. For instance, the level of air pollution in Switzerland in the year 1990 was really low when compared to the levels recorded now. In addition, there is always a looming threat of loss of jobs for the native people when there is an influx of foreigners. With the reducing number of job vacancies, there is going to be an obvious rise in unemployment among the natives. An example for this can be seen in gulf countries where original populations were left without jobs because the foreigners were taking up most of them.

    Contrary to this, there are a lot of advantages which i believe, completely outweigh the disadvantages. To embark on, when people of different cultures mix together, there develops better understanding of different races and thereby leads to an increased level of empathy. Empathy is absolutely essential for peaceful co existence. A good evidence of this can be seen in the UK, where people have of different ethnic backgrounds have been living together since time immemorial which now has lead to a decrease in racially motivated crimes. Moreover, another very important factor is, it gives better chances for people living in impoverished or developing countries. Humans should be given the freedom to make their lives better. This is supported by the fact that people have been able to make lives better for themselves and their progeny by moving to different places.

    To conclude, though there are both drawbacks and benefits to this idea of immigration, i believe it is better for people to move and settle in different countries.

    Advancement in communication technology and transportation have allowed people from all around the globe to do their work while sitting in any part of the world. I believe that this has more advantages than drawbacks.

    The main downside of this is the valuable time which families used to spend together have considerably decreased, although with the introduction of some free and easy online platforms like skype, zoom or google meet it has become easier to maintain contact with friends and family but it is not the same as having a live conversation face to face or going for a small outings or picnics frequently. Also, with the improvement in transportation the total air pollution level has increased in the past few years despite the efforts by the government promoting public transport majority of the people like to travel in their own vehicles as it is more comfortable.

    The main advantage of advancement in transportation is that they can help people to travel long distances with ease and in much shorter time, making it possible to spend a vacation at any part of world and learn new culture, language and trends of different countries.

    Also, with the advancement of communication work can be done at any place with a simple internet connection and a laptop, which has reduced the fatigue involved with the traveling and increased work efficiency. It has also created opportunities for people to take out some time which was usually used in travelling to improve their health and fitness.

    To conclude, in my opinion although there are disadvantages of modernization in communication and transportation, they are outweighed by the advantages.

    In recent years, technological advancement has benefited people to a great extent weather it is working or living in different parts of the world. From my prospective its advantages definitely outweighs its disadvantages.

    The major problem with these developments can be seen on the youth as they have moved overseas to explore the global opportunities but it will have detrimental affect on their relation with their loved ones due to loss of personal touch with them. Although, communication through voice and video calling apps is much more easier these days but they cannot rejoice the moment which is achieved through face to face interaction. To exemplify this statement, one of my close friend is working in New York and we can just greet each other over virtual platform but we are saddened to not see each other in person.

    However, alongside disadvantages I believe that we should not leave behind its benefits because they play an integral role in our lives. Firstly thanking to the evolution of mass transportation, journeys have become easier than before especially it is just a matter of time. For instance, bullet train has been invented which benefits not only to reduce the time that most people spend on travel but also help them to experience a luxurious life. Moreover, when it comes to communication masses could take advantage of such applications as Skype to communicate with anyone or even have a office meetings. Although these devices might require them to have a basic understanding, they would help people to work regardless of geographical barriers.

    In conclusion, despite the fact that people could face minor problems related to advanced technology communication and transportation, I think that the benefits will have a much more influence on people.

    In modern history, people have more freedom to relocate to another country for their work. Now days many foreign companies are inviting talented people to shoulder them. It is becoming more feasible with use of technology and transportation.

    A good illustration of this is communication technology, people are selected over the call it might video or audio. But with few applications like – skype, Microsoft team, zoom, g-talk and what’s app business account. Recruiter’s are opting video call. Even though people are happy to relocate in another country as they have opportunity to explore new culture, environment, tradition, languages even education system. It is fruitful with financial aspect.

    But it also have some drawback they usually get disconnected from family, friends and relatives in sweet and sour time. They have only one option which is video call.

    Is it good not to be with them. No doubt it is bad but for few it is good as they can help them financially in tough time.

    As people are showing more interest toward middle east countries and accepting their living methodology. In my final view it has disadvantage as people are disconnected with local trend it can be spiritual, religious and culture as well.

    In today’s era with the advanced development in the modes of transportation and communication, it has given a plethora of opportunities for people to explore outside of one’s country and I perceive it to be more advantageous and beneficial although there could be few demerits as well.

    People need human touch and comfort that one’s home provides for the individual cannot be matched to any experience because we are ultimately social beings. While we experience contact through a lot of internet enabled applications, we will still feel the necessity of being around our loved ones.However many applications mitigate this problem by providing high definition real time video calling experiences.

    Subsequently, travelling to a new country is extremely beneficial for one’s holistic growth as it deepens the overall knowledge of an individual. This is enabled by easy modes of transport like air travel, underground trains connecting two or multiple countries along with wireless communications. The infrastructure is further being developed to hyper-loops aiming to reduce travel time by hours between countries and fibre optic cables increasing the internet speed by leaps and bounds. Modernisation and technological advancement also provides opportunity to people to explore their realm of space which in return improves the GDP of the country they reside in.It is also enables people to explore places known for their scenic beauty ,culture and historical traditions especially with the help of navigation applications which work based on satellite provided geo location points.

    Although there are disadvantages of travelling and settling abroad, the advantages are more significant with respect to one’s lifestyle and future growth and it correlates perfectly with the freedom of moving into another country.
