谢谢老师过年也来批改作文!
A person’s worth nowadays seems to be judged according to social status and material possessions. Old-fashioned values, such as honour, kindness and trust, no longer seem important. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion? Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own  knowledge or experience. Write at least 250 words.

Admit it or not, judging a person’s worth by social status and material possessions rather than traditional values that is no longer imperative,like honour,kindness and trust.In my opinion,I agree with the statement.
First,society nowadays, to a large extent, is materialsim-oriented. Media promotes materialism.Advertisments about brands, properties on tv,social net working site usually often highlights luxurious lives or encourage people to buy. Therefore ,most people are being convinced that only material possessions are the necessities that can satisfy their needs and bring them happiness. These possessions are what they aim for in their lives.When they evaluate others,they choose social status and wealth to identify ones’ worth. Moreover,they often neglect spiritual values such as love,faith, as they are seem to be not  necessary for them when these are rather sublte when ones evaluate others’ worlth.
Second,social status and material ownership are objective,while old-fashioned values are subjective.Social status and material possessions are obvious and can be measured.However,kindness,trust are based on personal judgement, which people’s views varies from each other.Using social status and wealth to judge others is easier and more convincing than old-fashioned values. As a result,people follow society’s standard and evaluate a person by social status and material possesion.For example, most people will consider Bill Gates as a successful person due to his high social status,wealth and successful achievement.However,people seldom talk about his charity work. For instance, we often talk about how Bill Gates  has successfully launched Mircosoft and paved way for the advancement of new technology,and may not know that he had set up a fund for the health care service in the impoverished countries.This shows that people concern about social status and material ownership and take this as a main criteria to appraise someone.
To conclude,society takes social status and material possessions as a standard,while spiritual values are often ignored by the people.
