Here are the 5 ideas from last week, about the negatives of credit cards:
1. encourage spending money that people dont have
2. leads to excess shopping, consumer culture
3. more credit cards, debt becomes out of control
4. bankrupt, in court, lose home
5. sometimes fines or even prison
Now heres a 5-sentence paragraph using these ideas:
The main drawback of credit cards is that they encourage people to spend money that they do not have. This has led to the consumer culture and addiction to shopping that we now see in society. When credit card users are unable to pay off their debts, they often resort to signing up for multiple cards, and the debt becomes increasingly overwhelming. Many people in this situation find themselves in court, bankrupt, and without a home as a final consequence of credit card dependence. In the worst cases, they may even face prison sentences.
Notice that I made one or two changes (e.g. overwhelming instead of out of control), but that I mostly followed the plan, writing one sentence for each idea. Practise doing this yourself.
