All people are different, aren’t they?
Do you agree that all people are different?
No one in the world looks exactly alike. People can be different in appearance, character, experience, language, culture, dreams, tastes. People behave differently and act differently. People are brought up differently. Some can be kind, well-mannered, others are selfish, unhelpful and very ill-mannered. Some are very happy and caring, others are sad and strict.
Different people find different things funny. Some people are good at practical things, others sit for hours with their noses in books. But everyone has a special talent for some activity. Some people are very dull and take things too seriously, others are clever and smart.
People have got different tastes. They wear different clothes. For example, some people like dresses and others like jeans. Besides, they also have got different hobbies. They like different kinds of music and books, films and sport. And we all have different views and opinions.

Why do you think that all people are different? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
All people are different. Each person is unique in its own way. Of course, I heard that there are some people in the world who are similar in appearance to me. My grandmother told me that during her trips some people took her for another woman. It would be really funny to meet your double. But absolutely the same people don’t exist. We are different in our hobbies, interests, character etc. Even twins differ from each other. If you look closely, you can notice the differences between them. No need trying to be like someone else. You need to be yourself.
