Just wanted to know if there is a ques in writing task 2
How the disadvantages outweigh the advantages?
Do we need to write both disadvantages and advantages at the same time and then writing in favour of disadvantages in the end or we just need to discuss the disadvantages?????
Moreover, if you are slightly under words in task 2 like if you only write around 237/238 words, is that a problem?
I just came to see one Discussion essay “Discuss the advantages of both methods and give your own opinion” . Can we follow the same structure of ” Discuss both views and give your own opinion ” in this case.

I wanted to ask a little question for clarification – if we are asked about the advantages and disadvantages (of English as a global language), why is the writer’s opinion expressed in the conclusion? (that the disadvantages outweigh the advantages)
Many thanks in advance,
ONdigital plan to bring "the Internet to everyone through their TVs, which are already in virtually every home in the country." To compound this, the government in the United Kingdom are seeking to be able to 'switch-off' analogue television before 2010.
Having explored the commercial benefits and consumer uptake in developed countries, such as the United Kingdom, there is reason to believe in the progression of the global digital network (currently the Internet), even towards countries to whom it might not be accessible presently.
Both these examples have 2 opinions instead of 1, and each opinion has advantage and disadvantage and finally writers opinion. This is going to be a long essay, kindly advise on this.
