Dear Professor Smith,
I am exceedingly honored to hear the news that you ask me to plan the debate on the theme of city traffic. Here, I am writing this letter for the purpose of suggesting a specific topic and telling you about my arrangements.
In order to have students have an in-depth understanding of the causes of city traffic, I suggest that the topic could be “Lack of management” VS “Lack of facilities”, which can not only provide us with abundant knowledge about why the traffic problem is prevalent, but also equip us with the ability of thinking independently and critically. In addition, the debate could be hold from nine o’clock to twelve o’clock on next Friday in the Lecture Hall of our library.
If you have any other ideas about this debate and its arrangement, please contact me in your convenience. I am looking forward to your early reply.
The bar chart given above reflects the changes of choices of graduates of a university in 2013 and 2018. To be specific, the percentage for graduates seeking jobs decreases sharply from 68.1%, to 60.7%. On the contrary, the proportion for graduates pursuing further study rises sharply from 26.3% to 34.0% and individuals creating their own business jumps from 1.3% to 2.6%.
It is of no difficult for us to come up with some possible factors to account for the trends. To begin with, college students nowadays are facing fiercer competition in seeking and maintaining a job, so that some of them have to continue their learning or create their own business. More significantly, with the economy booming and society advancing, the rapid growth of personal wealth has also laid a solid basis for them to afford a higher degree and achieve their self-realization. More than anything, the department concerned at all levels in our country have released quite a few initiatives that privilege graduates to set up business. Therefore，more students continue their study and start a business.
Taking into account what has been argued, we can come to the conclusion that the established trends are favorable and therefore acceptable. And it is certain that they will continue in years to come.
