- For Teachers
I want to know the difference between unsafe and unsecured.
The place become unsafe.
The place become unsecured.
Which one is correct?
Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
Thanks for your advice.
I want to use for a situation or condition.
Can I write "If the region/place change to unsafe area."?
I mean that place or region is good condition now. If it change, how can I write?
"The place will become unsafe" is fine and "the place will become insecure" may be correct depending on the place. For example, a country can become "unsafe" but not "insecure". Can you tell us what place you are talking about? Is it a country? Is it a specific building like a bank or scrap yard?
Thanks for your reply, renard.
I would like to make a plan for a region for a situation.
I would like make a plan to stop trading for township "A" (if/in case) it's becoming unsafe area after we have started trading.

Please give some advice. Many thanks in advance.
"I'd like to make an exit plan for town A in the event that it becomes unsafe for trading there."
"I'd like to make a plan to stop trading in town A in the event that it becomes unsafe there."
Note, this could mean two things. 1) You want to agree on stopping trading if it becomes too dangerous (ie. that is the plan), or 2) You want to make an actual plan about how you are going to stop trading under those circumstances.
I just want to make a plan in advance..
So, Do you mean like that? No.1 sentence that you wrote is using for plan and No.2 is decision.

"I'd like to propose that we stop trading in town A in the event that it becomes unsafe there" means you don't necessarily intend to actually make a plan.
