General Writing and Grammar Help/"youth'


I have a debate on the topic "Youth of Today are driven by Materialism" and I have to speak AGAINST the topic. Please help me with some points. I thought u could help with points related to your topic.....


1. Many are genuinely driven by helping their fellow man.

2. Some are only interested in success and not money.

3. Few strive to make a name for themselves and their families.

4. Some are driven by family traditions, i.e. my grandfather started this company.

5. In some there is the competitive urge.

6. Finally, there is nothing but pride...I want to go as far as I can!

I hope these help,

I`ve taught writing or some aspect of the English language for nearly 35 years. I can answer nearly any question on grammar, usage or meanings of words above dictionary usage. An avid crossword fan and writer, I can also answer questions about business presentations and resumes.


I have worked with words all my life as a teacher of the language and as an amateur and professional writer. Communication is a vital force in my life and everyone else's.
