Nowadays, young people spend a lot of their free time in the shopping malls. This could have negative effects on them and the society.
To what extent do you agree or disagree?
I have a few questions.
For the writing, can I say that it could have both negative and positive impacts? I mean, at first, when I read the question, i thought it was easy to plan the ideas. And then when wrote, i reaAtuled it was quite difficult to have good vocabs for this topic.
For the speaking, in part 3, i think that i was asked too many questions than it should be. Is that okay? Does it means my answers were too short or something?
