1. Friendliness of roommates;
2. Closeness to stores;
3. Size of the apartment
Well, among the three options given, I thinkthe most important factor would be the friendliness of roommates.
For starts, nice roommates can always makeyou happy and support you. You need to be really careful when choosing whoyou’re gonna live with. A friendly partner can help you with troubles in lifeand study while a distant one could make you feel alienated. I had a fantasticSpanish roommate when I was a junior in college and she helped me a lot onhousework and comforted me in my most difficult times.
However, the other 2 factors don’t bother me that much coz with suchdeveloped public transport nowadays, I can reach a supermarket within 30minutes. Plus, I only need a cozy and clean place to stay in most of the timeso the size of the entire house won’t be a problem for me.
Personally,I think it’s better to teach the elderly how to use computer in class.
First,in class, they can communicate with other old people and share experience witheach other. Peer support and feedback are always essential for learning newstuff, especially for the old. My grandma took some computer lessons togetherwith her friends and she really enjoyed the process, so the progress was reallyremarkable.
However, if we offer old people individual courses at home, it would besuper time-consuming and won’t be as effective as teaching in class. It’scommon that old people do not trust strangers to visit them in person and theymight have defensive attitude towards the tutors. Also, there won’t be enoughteachers for each student so I don’t see any practicality in this option.
