English Master would like to present a sample Part 2 answer to the following question:

Describe a magazine or newspaper article that you recently read.
You should say:
when and where you read it
what the magazine or newspaper it was                          
what the article was about                          
and explain what you thought of this article.

One of the most interesting news articles that I recently read is the one I came across last week. I was simply sitting at my computer like I do every day. And then suddenly I logged in to the website VnExpress, which is the most popular online newspaper in Vietnam. I saw a really catchy title. “Obesity in kids. Why?” The newspaper article concentrated on the reasons why the majority of children in Vietnam and especially those in HCMC and Hanoi are suffering from obesity. They become overweight. They become slow. Their health is endangered. The article attempts to explain the three major culprits behind this phenomenon. Reading the article, I found out the real reasons, and the most prominent factor that contributed to this fact was simply the fact that parents over cared about their children. Well, it if they hadn’t been so much concerned about their children’s health, and overfeeding them as well as injecting all kinds of nutrients, as well as vitamins and minerals into their tiny bodies, these children would not have to be exposed to such a danger. The article was truly invaluable, as it provided me with practical information as well as very well cited sources. It would be useful for me and will come in handy when I have a child.
