为大家带来2017年12月9日场的雅思写作真题7分范文，社会类话题，题目:A rise in the standard of living in a country often seems to only benefit cities rather than rural areas. What problems might this difference cause? How might these problems be reduced?在一个国家，生活水平的提高似乎只会让城市而不是农村地区受益。这一差异会造成什么问题?如何减少这些问题呢?
The cities have benefited more from the rise of living standard than the rural areas so that the gap between the urban and rural areas has been widened. Consequently, a series of problems related to the urban-rural gap arise.
As more budgets are invested in the infrastructure in the urban rather than the rural areas, urban population enjoy better educational and medical resources as well as more convenient transportation. To struggle for a better life, labors from rural areas rush into the cities, making the already limited city space more and more crowded and resulting in the prohibitively high cost of living. For those who migrate from rural areas to cities, they may have a hard time adjusting themselves to the lifestyle in cities since it is so very different from their previous country life. As a result, they will face a job market so competitive that it will be extremely difficult for them to find a satisfactory job. Then, with the ever increasing number of jobless young people come more serious social problems like stealing, robbing and other crimes.
Another concern is that it is not always possible for children from rural areas to get access to proper schooling in cities. Hence, these children have to be left behind in the countryside, separated from their parents, and eventually find themselves unable to compete with those who grow up in cities. Very unfortunately, as the educational resources keep pouring into the cities, the rural children will remain unable to use them, which means the educational gap between the urban and rural children may exist for quite a long time.
To break up the vicious cycle that will lead to a wider urban-rural gap, the government is obliged to balance the development of cities and rural areas by investing more money in the public services such as schools and hospitals and providing more job opportunities in rural areas. Besides, agricultural tourism can be developed to bring income for the rural population. For those eager to move to cities, the government should offer them more training opportunities to ensure they can find their position in cities.(353 words)
