Topic: Your friend has enough money either to go on a holiday or to buy a new bike. Advise him.

At present, my friend, Nam, has sufficient money either to take a holiday or to spend for a new bike. He does not know which to choose. Personally, if i were him, i would go on a holiday for personal enjoyment and self-perfection.

Above all, personal enjoyment is necessary to him. He told me that his parents put enormous pressure on him to gain a scholarship. Although he has achieved the goal, he feels stressed and unhappy. That is the primary reason that i suggest him spending time doing what he wants to do. There are cultural events so he is certain to discover a lot in his favorite field, art and culture. With a holiday, he also has the chance to visit places of interest, which helps refresh his mind and relax himself. Indeed, the holiday will balance his life and make him love the life more.

In addition, self-perfection holds no less importance. I see that he concentrated to much on studying both at class and at home without having time to equip himself with some fundamental living skills. This is possible to have adverse impacts on his life later on. Meanwhile, the holiday is likely to offer him the opportunity to learn how to take care of himself and how to live independently on his parents. He also has more chances to interact with many people from various places. This is sure to ameliorate his communication skills. With no doubt, the holiday is useful to him.

In conclusion, i strongly recommend that Nam should use his money to go on a holiday to enjoy and perfect himself. The holiday not only brings him happiness and entertainment, but also improve some of his living skills. I hope that he would take my advice.

... and make him love the life more.

but also improves some of his living skills.

When you make an argument, always give a few sentences to consider the counter-argument. In this case, you should talk about the benefits of buying a bike, and then talk about the fact that these benefits are not as good as the benefits of a vacation. :-)
