In some countries, traditional arts are becoming extinct. Some people think that we should try to keep them. What is your opinion?
Today, many types of traditional arts are facing extinction. I personally believe that traditional arts should be valued and preserved.
Traditional arts, such as traditional music, dance and painting（要学会举例子，其实这些例子都很浅显，但是能使论证更充分，而且使用了插入语，句式更多样）, form an important part of a nation’s cultural identity. They help to express a traditional culture and make it unique. This is particularly important in an age when globalisation has made cultures very similar. A nation without a rich variety of traditional arts would feel rootless and disconnected from its own traditions.
Apart from cultural value （不露痕迹的过渡）, traditional arts also have significant educational value. They help young people to understand the customs习俗 and history of their country. Introducing traditional arts such as pottery and weaving into art class is also very useful in helping children to develop creative crafting skills.
Another（不露痕迹过渡） reason why traditional arts should be preserved is that they are irreplaceable resources. Once a form of traditional art disappears in history, it can never be truly revived. Only until then will（使用倒装句） the people who do not think it should be preserved realise that is a great loss and regret their attitude.
People who are against preserving traditional arts may argue that it would place a heavy financial burden on the government. These people fail to understand the economic value of traditional arts. In my country, for example, many traditional arts are famous internationally. They attract many international tourists each year. The traditional arts and crafts industry also contributes to economic growth and government tax revenue.
In conclusion, traditional arts have high cultural, educational and economic value. Their extinction would be a great loss to a nation. The government should provide funding to traditional arts programmes, and the media and schools should try to make the value of traditional arts better understood by the public.
