    Gaining a recognized position & earning incredibly high salary in your field of expertise are most people’s dreams. To pursue these payoffs, workers work hard and students study hard. However, achieving that goal in a decent manner is far from easy. As a result, some people use their own talent and their endeavor, whereas some choose shorter and less transparent ways.
    Recently, the IELTS community has solicited a wave of anger for some highly respected trainers whose names are so familiar to us. Some of these instructors either exaggerated or falsified their IELTS certificates to deceive the public. To make matters worse, when the information of these wrongdoings leaked, the convicted opted for making excuses, beating around the bush or giving no explanation instead of apologizing to their learners for their misbehavior.
    Due to these recent scandals, it got me thinking that whether these wrongdoers had once thought about possible responsibilities they would bear if someone detected it one day. In addition, these scandalous events could have higher chances of becoming stigmas which are hard to fade away for many years to come.
    As for psychological reasons, we people usually face the dilemma of prioritizing between existing monetary benefits and our code of conduct – a so-called “work ethics”.

        Being an angel bears a striking difference to being an evil. Which one is your preference, sticking to your belief system of doing the right thing or pursuing your goals at all costs?
        Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes, offenders are involved in illegal acts due to their family burdens such as cases of prostitution or petty crimes. Do you agree or disagree with this idea?

     Recently we’ve witnessed a hot trend “autism awareness 365” on Facebook which is something becoming more and more ubiquitous nowadays. Following the data in 2019, in Japan, there are hundreds of thousands of young men who lock themselves in their bedroom sometimes not leaving their home for decades. They’re known as Hikikomori, who have completely withdrawn from society. Thus, how to avoid autism? “Well socializing” is an answer and it’s also believed to be a mean that helps us to become more successful and happy in life. Socialization is a lifelong process which we learn about social expectations and how to interact with other people. Not too many people are aware of nearly all of the behavior that we consider to be “human nature" is actually learned through socialization, and, it is during socialization that we learn how to walk, talk and feed ourselves about behavioral norms that help us fit into our society, and so much more. Do you like to find out more about socialization? Let’s discuss with us!

    Questions to ponder:

    1. What are agents of socialization? What agents of socialization do you identify as particularly important? Which of these would you say have the most profound effects on the construction of our social selves? Make a case to support your choices.
    2. In many countries, sports are an important part of many people’s lives—many people enjoy playing sports, while others follow their favorite sports teams closely in the media. How are sports an agent of socialization? What roles, norms, or values are conveyed through this agent of socialization?3
    3. What role does the way people react to you play in the development of your personality and your self-image? How can the reactions of others influence whether or not you develop skills as an athlete or a student or a musician, for example?
    4. How have social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram affected your socialization and Vietnamese people?
