A taste of what you get-- the script
The news begs the questions: why do the elderly fall for scams that seem so obvious to us, and what can we do as a society to stop that from happening again? While a lot could be achieved by law enforcement actions against these predatory and parasitic behaviour, the real answer, in my humble opinion, lies in promoting life-long learning amongst the elderly, keeping them mentally fit and in touch with the wider world, which has numerous benefits not only to the elder learners themselves, but also very beneficial to the wider society...The Department of Health published a study that reveals that hospitalized older people with a cognitive impairment, like dementia, receive almost 9 hours more of care weekly from healthcare professionals than those without. Who foots the bill? Taxpayers! There’s a saying that goes ‘use it or lose it’ and it definitely applies to brain power. Geriatric and neurological research has found that learning keeps neurons working at optimum levels, which can forestall cognitive decline associated with aging. Lifelong learning preempts and twarts ‘brain drain’, so to speak, and thus makes it less costly for the society to take care of them. It is not just about cognitive health, but also mental wellbeing. Lifelong learning renews their sense of self-worth and motivation, keys to psychological health, which is otherwise quite expensive to upkeep. But the benefit doesn’t end here: not only does implementing community learning programmes lessen the financial burden on the society, but it also brings economic benefits.

- Transition between points is smooth, notably (between first two points: ‘But the benefit doesn’t end here: not only does implementing community learning programmes lessen the financial burden on the society, but it also brings economic benefits.’ and between the second and third point; ‘they bring income to the training sector, and not to mention the endless conversations we had about adventure sports.’)
- The first two points complement each other: money saved, and money earned; the third point complements the first two points: money and family--a clear sign of thoughtful organization because it is clear that the points progressed logically in each part
- Correct use of complex sentences and a wide range of sentence patterns. Take this as an example: ‘keeping them mentally fit and in touch with the wider world, which has numerous benefits not only to the elder learners themselves, but also very beneficial to the wider society’. This is a participle phrase (keeping…) which contains a relative clause (which has…) and advanced sentence structure (not only…).
- You do not need to have very difficult words to get high marks here. The use of idioms, metaphors, quotation and collocations are also impressive
