1. Why do people attend college or university?
Every year many students in all worlds attend college or university. There are different reasons about this. All of this people try to develop themselves in the college. But I do not think that the time spent in the college is lost time.
One of the reasons that people go to the college is because they want to prepare themselves for a good career. The students learn theoretically and practically how to solve problems in the real work situations. They take knowledge’s in specific areas and this helps them to be a professionals.
Some people go to the college because they like to learn. Usually this students continues their education and win awards in sciences. They have a good chance to express good learning possibilities.
Other people go to college because they can meet people who like to learn. They can meet new friends from all worlds. This is the way to make an interesting social experiece. In the college atmosphere everyone can try to be a leader, to develop communication skills with students and lecturers.
Nowadays a higher education is necessery. The college in an investment in personal future. This is and my reason to be a student.
As we all know that today education is very important in our lives. We always seek luxurious life which need decent amount of money and well educated person can get it easily than uneducated. However, there are many other reasons for which people attend college or university.
First, as i mentioned above, to live decent life and to make good money people go to college. If person is well qualified he/she can get blue collar job. Sometimes they don't even need to look for a job but opportunity comes to them.
Second reason could be the status in society. Some people want to achieve higher and respective status in their society by getting higher education. for example, in our society if the person is pharmacist or MD, he/she receives special respect in any cultural or social activities.
Third, some people want to enjoy college because this time of our life is very cheerful and enjoyable. In college students are free from social and family matters and they don't have any kind of responsibilities but their studies. They have friends who are very intimate members in our lives. Actually, I have enjoyed a lot in my college days.
In conclusion, I would say that college is very important place for all of us to improve our quality of life as it teach us good manners and increase our knowledge. College has become essential for every student in order to make their own identity in this competitive world.
Please give me some suggestions on my grammar, vocabulary and sentence structure.
2. Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?
Parents are the best teachers? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer
Parents, undoubtly can teach and bring their children up as a duty. Some people think that parents in their parenthood, can teach their children better than teachers. Others may argue that parents would not fulfill the job of teachers because of educational methods and knowledge. This essay will look at if parents can even do better than teachers when they teach their children.
On the one hand, parents would be better than teachers in educating their children for several reasons. Firstly, children may strongly believe or listen to their parents because of their nature relationship. For example, a little boy may naturally happily greet other people everytime he meets just because their parents teach him to do that. Secondly, it may be easier for parents to expect their children to obey. For instance, a father can tell his little daughter to get up earlier everyday which is not easy for teachers. Another reason is that children may find that they can only share their personal problems to their parents. The closer parents and children are, the easier parents can educate their children. As a result, parents are ideal people to educate their children.
On the other hand, teachers would do much better than parents in educating children because of many reasons. One reason is that teachers are trained for teaching, with their knowledge and teaching methods, they can help to educate children more effectively. For example, parents may easily find out a math solution for children, but they find it hard to explain. Whereas teachers, with their teaching methods, can find it easy to get children to find out the solution themselves. Moreover, teachers also know how to encourage children to learn more effectively, while parents probably do not. For instance, teachers always explain why children need to learn and tell them learning is an important duty. While parents often mistakenly encourage their children to do homework by a bar of chocolate, or a trip in the coming weekend. As a result, teachers may do better than parents in educating children.
In conclusion, educating children is not a simple duty. However, if parents and teachers can work together to fulfill, we have the right to believe that our new generations will be as expected.
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?
Parents are the best teachers.
Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
Nowadays a good education is one of the most important factors for anyone who wants to
successfully handle all the competitions occurring in once lifetime. In this essay i want
to explain why i think parents are the best teachers among all educators.
Children spend the most of their time during the childhood with their parents. Thus
parents can influence and teach their children like no other person can do. When children join
the school they already have received their basic knowledge and the teachers at school have to
put their expertise upon this basic knowledge.
Since children spend so much time with their children and their naturally given respect for
their parents they will listen carefully to their parents advices. Usually no other person will
ever be able to get a similar level of authority like parents have.
Probably the most important point that makes parents the best teachers is their love to the children.
This love will lead to a great devotion while they teach their children making them the most
patient teacher one can imagine.
Because of all these points i think parents are the best teachers and can even teach their
children better than any professional educator with a lot of expertise.
3. Actually why do we lie?
What are the reasons for this act? I guess there are several types of lying. One kind of lying is intended to hide, to present things from a different angle some things or events. Furthermore, there also exists another type – a positive one, which doesn’t tell the truth in order to do something positive and good to people.
I share the same opinion like the one from the topic that lying sometimes is not a problem. For instance, when I was little kid in 1st or 2nd grade, my mother lied me that she has been always a perfect student. After several years I realized that she also had bad marks, but she was telling me this to motivate me to study more at school. So this was a positive lie at all.
Another very common practice is when a patient is very ill and it seems he will die, usually doctors don’t tell the truth about his illness. In this way they are making the patient feel calm and not worried. Will you be able to live when you know that you are going to die within several months or even weeks? – It’s terrible. So this is why the lie is acceptable in this case.
Next, I can think of another very positive lie. It’s especially related with small children who believe that Santa Claus exist in real life. Of course everybody knows that this is a fictional image of man with a white beard who each year gives many presents to children around the World. Unfortunately, kids understand that this is not true from their classmates or friends bigger than them. Usually parents tell to their children that on New Year, Santa Claus will bring many presents to them. In the same direction, this lie is absolutely acceptable and also makes kids happy.
In conclusion I’d like to express my opinion that lying is not always connected with negative sense. However, there is sometimes a positive side of that act. In many cases lying makes people happier and is absolutely justified. So I suggest that everybody thinks carefully what to say.
4. Some people prefer to eat at food stands or restaurants. Other people prefer to prepare and eat food at home. Which do you prefer? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
I will begin my essay with one latin dictum. It has been said:”De gustibus non est disputandem”, which means that taste, is beyond debate. I think that people prefer to eat at food stands or restaurants for many different reasons and it’s impossible to define in general which way is true. In the following part of this essay I will list some advantages and disadvantages of both possibilities. In the end I’ll expose my opinion.
Food stands and restaurants offer an easy access to food. They are appropriate for business people which time is insufficient. For example, if you are an employee in a big company and you have only 30 minutes break, it’s impossible for you to prepare food in home. In this case, it’s necessity to visit any restaurant. Another advantage of restaurants is their atmosphere. For instance, they are appropriate for official business meeting or for special occasions. If you want to propose marriage, for example, one luxurious restaurant is a good place to do this.
However, I think that process which is related to preparing of food is more interesting than eating in restaurants. In my opinion, process of food preparing is an art. Just like the painter, cook creates a work of art. He mixes many different kinds of foods to produce one delicious meal. Some people rest while they preparing food. Some psychologists believe that process of food preparing conduct to reducing stress symptoms. It’s known with name “cooking therapy”. I will outline other advantages of food preparing at home. First, in many cases, food, which is prepared in home, is cheaper than food in restaurants. Also, atmosphere in restaurants and food stands is noisy. If you want to have dinner in calmly atmosphere, home made food is a right way!
To summarize, if you have insufficient time or you want to lend variety in your life – restaurants and food stands are right way for you. However, If you want to relax or learn more about different types of foods and how different meals are produced, home-preparing food is for you. Moreover, in most cases food prepared in home is cheaper than food which is offered in restaurants or food stands. Therefore, in different cases I prefer to eat at different places. Sometimes I eat at home; sometimes I eat at restaurant or food stand.
Some people like to eat out at food stands and restaurants. While others like to prepare food at home. Often it depends on the kind of lifestyle people have. Those with very busy jobs outside the house don't always have time to cook. They like the convenience of eating out. Overall, though, it is cheaper and healthier to eat at home.
While eating in restaurants is fast, the money you spend can add up. When I have dinner at restaurant with a friend, the bill is usually over twenty dollars. I can buy a lot of groceries with that much of money. Even lunch at a fast-food stand usually cost five to six dollars for one person. That's enough to feed the whole family at home.
Eating at home is better for you, too. Meals at restaurants are often high in fat and calories, and they serve big plates of food- much more food than you need to eat at one meal. If you cook food at home, you have more control over the ingredients. You can use margarine instead of butter on your potatoes, or not put so much cheese on top of your pizza. At home you can control your portion size. You can serve yourself as little as you want. In a restaurant, you may eat a full plate of food “because you paid for it"
It's true that eating out is convenient. You don't have to shop, or cook, or clean up. However, real home cooking doesn't have to take a lot of time. There are lots of simple meals that don't take long to make. In fact, they're faster than eating out, especially if you think of the time you spend driving to a restaurant, parking, waiting for a table, waiting for service, and driving home.
Both eating at restaurants and cooking at home can be satisfying. Both can taste good and be enjoyed with family and friends. I prefer cooking at home because of the money and health issues, but people will make the choice that fits therie lifestyle best.
5. Love expression:
When children grow up and become mature, they have their own feeling about “Love”. In my experience, there are three kinds of love: love at first sight, true love and blind love.
Firstly, love at first sight occurs randomly between two people that they have not known before. On a nice day, they have just looked casually to each other in classroom, coffee shop, cinema, and they fall in love immediately. In fact, it is really fantastic feeling! For example, I tell you about a story related to my relative. My uncle found half part of his heart in his English class. He said to me that he liked her face, her voice and especially her eyes. We could not explain how it had happened because she liked my uncle too. They had the same happy feeling when they first talked together. After that, they learned English better and two years later, they wanted to live and get married. But sometimes you have to spend for a long time to see and find person who loves you honestly. In addition, it sometimes makes you fall in love and you cannot focus on doing your job. But I do not like this kind of love. I want to focus on my study. But my uncle's story will be good experience for me.
Secondly, true love occurs between two honest people. They have a deep love and they usually get married after their graduation. Most of them spend their childhood together. But the important thing is that they would not break up even though unexpected things could happen to them. My father found his invaluable spiritual friendship, his wife, is my mother now. My parents spent their childhood together when they were in Da Lat. They also have wonderful time for studying, working. However, when my father moved to Sai Gon for his job, he stayed away from my mother. But they proved the statement “far from eye far from heart” doesn’t mean anymore. It took 5 years and they have still loved up to now. That’s why I admired my parents. I think true love is important for everyone very much. In another story, there are two students who love brightly each other. They now are attending medicine and pharmacy school. The boy has cancer and he couldn’t continue to study. The girl went for the doctor and cured him. At first, she has got to endure for the long time and she also has to work very hard. Her friend advised her to abandon him. But she didn’t give up. After two-year treatments, he could study again to become a doctor. This is a true story I’ve heard. They and my parents set some good examples for me. I really idolize them. I think when I have a good job, I will try to find my girlfriend and spend with her most of problem that we encountered.
Finally, I want to mention about “blind love”. It occurs when someone doesn’t love honestly, they just take advantages on you. It also isn’t good for you because you will be charged a lot of money. It hurts your soul as well. Teenagers are patients of this kind of love. I have heard a story about lady who was in rich family. She was studying at high school. She is natural lady. She was flirted by an artful boy. He had charged her lots of money. After cheating, he left her. But she was deeply in love. It was a heart-rending story. She couldn’t study after bad event. Nowadays, many sad stories like those are getting more popular. I think it’s very risky for young ladies. They can’t escape their passions. I do not like artful people. I think we should keep a distance to a person who we meet at first time. In addition, we should not believe them too fast. It is useful for young ladies to avoid blind love. If I have friends in this situation, I will advise them to do right ways.
In short, I think true love is the most important for people. You should not be deeply in love with someone. Someday you find your lover by casual look; it is also wonderful experience for you. Love is important, but when you have job with high salary, you can have lots of lovers. But I am not sure they love you honestly. I am going to study hard and find someone who likes to study with me too.
6. TOEFL essay sample: A company has announced that it wishes to build a large...
This topic allows free interpretation of some not mentioned details. For example, we learn LITTLE information about the factory. But THE following statement depends namely on this information.
There are two possibilities about the manufacture of the factory. The first is A manufacture which pollutes the local environment. They are many types of pollution. For instance, this is noise, chemical and radiation pollution. I think that the government must prohibit all dangerous kinds of manufacture. One large and dangerous factory may cause negative effects on A community located near the factory. I’ll restrict my view TO noise pollution. The consequence of noise pollution is raising THE number of nervous diseases. Noise penetrates everywhere and it’s very difficult to stop it.
But many factories are not dangerous for THE environment. They provide economic resources to local communities. For example, they provide many jobs for the people who live in the community near the factory. One large factory always makes A Contribution to upgrading local infrastructure in the region.
In conclusion, I think that whether one factory is useful or dangerous depends ON every different case. The people in the community must analyze every potential investor and if he offers an ecological manufacture less dangerous aspects, they must accept the project because it’ll improve people’s welfare.
7. If you could change one important thing about your hometown, what would you change? Use reasons and specific examples to support your answer
I have been living in my hometown since I was born here. Therefore, as a citizen of the city, I clearly understand what it is in dire NEED of now. Frankly, if possible, I would like to have the performance mechanism of the municipal authority reformed.
First, bureaucratic procedures have caused people too many troubles. The law stipulates a significant number of unreasonable requirements that could hardly be met. Therefore it may take a person months or even years to get a document approved. In particular, some requirements cannot be realized in reality. For example, if you want to buy a house in the city, you should have the permanent residency card first. On the contrary, if you want to apply for a permanent residency card, you must own a house beforehand. So the procedures form a vicious circle. Also, many other ironic things still exist in the administrative system, causing difficulties for people. The citizens have widely complained about these paradoxes for a long time. However, everything is changing slowly. Only when those unnecessary regulations are done away WITH, do people’s lives become more pleasant.
Second, a complex legal system full of paradoxes also Results in many evils. Exhausted by the tangled procedures, people ask for help from officers, the informed insiders. Unfortunately, because they are insiders, state officers know how to maneuver the regulations to harass the citizens rather than to help them. If you have a DIFFICULTY with a procedure, just give the relevant officer an envelope including a reasonable sum of money, then your problem will vanish. Otherwise, you will be told to wait indefinitely or to give absurd documents as REQUIRED by the law. This practice has actually become a social evil, producing a number of corrupt cadres. The city’s budget is embezzled, the public works projects are PLUNDERED ??and so on. If everything goes on like this, very soon, the municipal authority will lose people'S TRUST. New laws should be adopted to strictly punish the corrupt officers and control the performance of others more effectively. Once the mechanism is renovated, people’s lives will be improved. Their taxes will not go into the hands of wrong-doers any more, the public works will be safer. Hence, needless to say how happy the community will be.
All in all, more than ever before, the municipal authority is in need of a drastic change so that the social order and discipline could be ensured.
8. TOEFL Essay: Subjects such as art, music, drama should be part of every child's eduction.
Are really art, music and drama essential for the child’s basic education? Does a small kid need to listen to music, to paint?
– In my opinion - yes. When a child is small it is very curious about everything, so it wants to know everything about life in early age.
I remember that when I was small I really liked drawing cards, our house, my father’s car, portraits and all kind of things which attracted me. If a child is given the possibility to express its vision of the World, this will give him a very good comprehension of what is around him. Furthermore, I am sure that taking the brush and white sheet of paper is something the child makes from its own intention and personal interest. Thus, it is very important that teachers guide small children how to draw, to organize nature trips, to show interesting objects, so after that they could recreate them in their own imagination.
Second, the music is sort of art that everybody enjoys it, without being important what type of music it is. Some people prefer Jazz and others Rock. Basing on my personal experience I have noticed that music has an incredible ability to calm people. When I listen to classical music I feel like I am going to another World, where I forget all my daily problems. For instance the same is with children. When they listen to a nice music they feel happy. Similarly to art, music is also a very important part of every child’s education.
Finally, having a widely spread view on drama, has also its benefits for children. When a child at school knows famous dramaturges and popular works it shows the kid’s intelligence. Moreover, theater and drama are considered as one of the most cultural arts.
In conclusion, I would like to summarize that having a broad knowledge from different spheres of our life can only help us develop more and more in future. As soon as a child gets in contact with art, music and dream, it will feel the World closer and more familiar.
9. People should sometimes do things that they don’t enjoy doing.
I totally agree with this. Everybody wants to do things they like but life is complex, our actions depend on the situations we are in. Some examples in daily life will make it more clearly.
Personal habits are not always right. Students go to school and have to study many subjects, not except subject that they don’t like studying but they still have to do it. They don’t like it doesn’t mean that subject is not good. They have to study it for purposes that maybe at that time they don’t understand.
At work office, secretaries must do things that their boss demands. Certainly they include things that make them fell not uncomfortable, but it’s their job, they must do it. Or a fat man enjoys eating snacks and fast foods, things making him fatter and fatter, it’s not good for his health so he must give up eating them. It’s really hard to do but he must to.
Doing chores is a work that most teenagers not enjoy doing. They enjoy going out with friends, lying on bed and listening to music, doing some extremely actions, etc ….but they don’t want to help their parents with the housework. That must have to be changed. They have to spend a little more time helping their parents although they are not satisfied with it. They must know that their parents are working very hard to raise them up, it’s just a little thing that they can do for them. So don’t deny it because you don’t enjoy doing it!
I myself have been told to do things that I don’t like too but I still do it well. I’m sure that all of you will agree with me and remember to do things well although you don’t like it.
Can you check this essay for me, it's my very first essay so I really care about it. Thank you very much!
10. TOEFL essay: Should high school students wear uniforms?
People ought to decide whether students should wear the uniform or not; some people think that wearing uniform is a good idea while others oppose the idea. As far as I am concerned, to wear uniforms is a good idea, but first I will list all the possible disadvantages and advantages of uniforms.
First of all, wearing uniforms helps students to focus harder on school studies; they shouldn’t spend time on thinking about what to wear next or how to look better than the classmates. It is known that teenagers tend to show off and to do everything just to be better than others. Saying simply, paying less attention on clothes they can learn more at school.
Another advantage of wearing uniforms is that students won’t buy fashion and expensive clothes, so that they will save money, which their parents earn with a hard working. Also, wearing uniforms can help some students to avoid uneasiness from the side of their classmates, for example, students who can allow themselves to wear expensive and fashion clothes can confuse those students that haven’t enough money to buy it.
Wearing uniforms helps us to develop the sense of self-discipline, which will help us in future, for example going to the interview to get a job it would be ridiculous to come in jeans with yellow t-shirt and sneakers, we should know the scope between official and nonofficial styles.
But wearing uniforms also has its disadvantages. Students wearing whatever they want can show their real personalities. It is some kind of art; with the help of clothes we can show our mood such as happiness or sadness.
All things considered, taking into account all the given advantages and disadvantages of wearing uniforms I can conclude that students should wear uniforms in order to comply with rules and to have equality between each other.
11. TOEFL essay example: Some people like living in the small town, others like...
my name is Melody.I am preparing for a TOEFL essay.could you please evaluate my first essay?
Some people like living in the small town, others like the lifestyle in the big city.
Which do you prefer? In my opinion, I would prefer live in the city than a small town because of numerous reasons .the city is more convenient and crowded .It also appeals to me with many opportunities to access to most modern facilities for study .In addition we can be acquainted with many people.
First of all, nobody can disclaim the convenience of the city .Transportation in there is easier than in either countryside or small town .Whenever you want to go anywhere you have various choices .You can take a taxi or get around with your car .The best choice is seemingly going by bus .you can save a measurable money when using public transportation. This is one thing you can’t have when you live in a small town. It’s also
Easy for you to go shopping. In a small town, there is only two or three even one shop
For you to buy whereas you can find shops in most streets in the city.
Furthermore, the city is the place, where I can access the most modern facilities for study. I used to study learn in a rural school .My class room is small and lack of equipment such as table and black board .It is really hard for me to study efficiently .
That why I feel really happy when I learn in a large class which is equipped facilities adequately. In the city we are encouraged to take part in outdoor activities, voluntary activities .They make students more dynamic, which is only on theory if you live in the small town.
Finally, if you live in the city you certainly meet a lot of people. It is certainly more interesting than meeting the same people every day and talking the same topics .talking to many people can also broaden your knowledge .Of course there will be both of good people and bad people but you will become more mature when you get in touch with them and learn from them how to have good manners.
In a word I prefer living in the city to small town for all its advantages .I’m sure that most of the young will agree with me. That why many cities usually confront with overpopulation.
12. Some people belive that students should be given one long vacation each year. Others belive that students should have several short vacations throughtout the year. Which viewpoint do you agree with. Use specific reasons and examples to support your choice.
Nowadays education plays a big role in a humons life. The better knowledge base you have the better you you will be able to find. Therefore, it is very iportant to have effective education system in order to make the learning process interesting and wishful for students. That’s why, in my opinion, students should be given several short vacations throughtout the year. Ill give you some few reasons that streagthen my point of view.
Who are the students? Usually, the are young blood who just started to experiment the real life full of happiness and drama. Everybody remember themselves at that age, im sure.
Where do people get knowledge? At school/college/university which provides students a huge amount of information that can be seemed impossible for understanding for someone, by the by, and in hence, make students overstres. I remember myself at school when I had problems with mathmatics and geometry. I got bored of learnig process and felt upset. I studied all day long after school, spent a lot of time doing homework and additional exercises but still couldn’t get a clue deeply. Then I decided to have a rest for oe week and go to visit my grandmother to the village. So when I came back everything seem very easy to me. My brain was fresh and clear. This is my experience that shows how is it useful to get a rest for couple of days, especially when you are overstressed.
Also, many people attend well-known college or university from other cities or even countries in order to get better education, new experience, career preporation. In this case, a short vacation is a chance to go back to their mothertown to met with relatives and friends. Only students whose home and place where the study are not in the same city will understandhow is it important to see parents, to get some advice, warm, tenderness, and moneyed assistance as well.
Moreover,a short repose can be a good time for self-developing, spacially : to analyse mistakes, problems were made before; to summarize the information was gotten from shool/college/ university; to read the books were recommened by academic.
From all above, I strongly belive that several short vacations throughtout the year can bring a tolerable Results as a rising students activity after spending a good time with their family, friends, doing some self-developing work. Now, with a new positive energy, is the time to learn more about the world!
13. Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Children should be strongly pushed to achieve their maximum.Use specific reasons and details to support your answer.
It is heard that children should be strongly either pushed or encouraged to achieve their higher aims. In the condition, parents hope their children will work hard to achieve their dreams. However, the children have freedom to do depends on their personal goal. It is agreeable, in my opinion, that they must be highly encouraged or taught to achieve their better obtainment in future.
First of all, it is important to nurture more academic skill among the kids for better future.Both teacher and parent always work together to teach and practise the kids by giving home works that they should complete practically when on their school holiday. Morever, they can have opportunities to succeed intellectually in their academic qualification intellectually, so they can enter into the most prestigious university.In my school, I was given practical works that I had practised in my home. When I was punished for doing error or being lazy in my subject, I felt I would studied deeply to be a better student.
Second, this method is not helping only but also leading the kids to have hardworking character in progress of achieving their higher hopes. The kids, for example, are taught and discriplined to understand different behaviour needs. In case, they can have knowledge in difference of lazy and hardworking characters. That hardworking deed is considered important for their future. During I was a teen, I was always advised to be hardworking in studying for my school exam. So, I had achieved good marks in the exam.
In conclusion, I suggest that the children will be always taught hard to obtain great hopes. It is not only will have put more academic skills and hardworking deeds among the kids but also better necessary to secure their future. Instead, it becomes the teacher and parent's main responsibility.
14. Some people claim that reading novels is a waste of time. They say that reading nonfiction works is more beneficial. Do you agree? Support your opinion.
Reading books is always a part of person’s life. Books, poems, articles, novels, classic literature and others satisfy people’s desire to learn the world. Today there are all kinds of literature exist and this causes some arguments between people. Question of book choice seems to be very relevant nowadays.
Some people think that reading novels is a waste of time. They consider non fiction to be more beneficial. Personal I don’t support this opinion. I think both types of literature have to be taken into great consideration for reading.
Firstly, Novels are good to read because people get richer in their minds. Authors in a very indirect way want to say a lot of important things through their books, and usually it is all about people’s live and feelings. That is why many readers find in the novels answers to their personal questions. For example, how to love and to be loved, how to overcome life’s difficulties. Reader won’t never meet this great opportunity in non-fiction. At the same time, non-fiction gives people encyclopedic knowledge about various fields of study. Scientific papers, technology and financial trends, dictionaries, and others are built on precise direct information which reader can devour daily. In fact, non-fiction turns out to be very beneficial. Students appreciate all resources of non-fiction, because by studying the information from academic books, and others they improve their skills and hence are able to score better at University.
Second reason why I consider novels a value to human being is that novels bring pleasure and relax people. I am sure almost everybody in their lives read at least one book just for fun. Indeed, good literature inspire people to think positively, to look at the world at a different angle. Some research from local college proved that theory. People were asked the question “What was the purpose of reading novel ?”. The research showed unbelievable outcomes. Most of the interviewers were readying before bed in the evening to relax and forget the stress they experienced all daylong being at work. I believe it is a reason to think novel relaxes people, therefore reading novels is nor a waste of time.
Finally, Novels are worth to read, because cultural value associated with novels develop and maintain reading abilities. In the country were I grew up, Pushkin’s literature brought us great knowledge of history, emotions. His books force people to think about important questions, such as death, birth, love, sorrow. Generations have been raised on his poems. Still his books are considered to be the most significant in a way they educate people.
However, we can’t be blind to the fact, that non-fiction also provide us with good knowledge. Moreover, non-fiction contain relevant database, which is very helpful in searching specific topics. For example, I would like to learn how flowering plants are developed. I can google it over the Internet or open Encyclopedia and find all answers there.
To sum up, both novels and non-fiction have benefits for people, We don’t have to neglect novels as well as non-fiction. In my opinion, all the good points should be taken into consideration before people decide either to avoid one of them or except it. Both enrich people lives in one way or another.
15. Topic 175: Some students like classes where teachers lecture (do all of the talking) in class. Other students prefer classes where the students do some of the talking. Which type of class do you prefer? Give specific reasons and details to support your choice.
I have attended hundreds of classes, in which teachers lecture (do all of the talking) in class. But if I can, I’d rather choose classes where students do some of the talking. This makes students understand more about the topics and enjoy themselves at classes.
To begin with, although teachers are specialists in their fields, they not always know what troubles their students. Each student has his (or her) own learning style and pace, so different students may run into different kinds of misunderstanding or confusing subjects. Having a chance to ask questions or state his (or her) idea of the subject, students can understand the topic thoroughly. Moreover, for many teachers I know, having students that always ask questions makes them feel confident about their teachings. The reason is, based on students’ comments, they know that the students are interested in their lecture and make changes for a better one. Classes where not only teachers but also students can do the talking motivate both of them to learn more.
In addition, questions and comments make class better place to study in. Imagine a class in which teacher lecture (do all of the talking). This may not matter for a few days, but for a few weeks, or a few months, students would get bored with listening to the same voice again and again. Having to do all of the talking, the teachers would get thirsty and feel exhausted. In some worse cases, this may end up taking all of teachers’ interest in their teachings, and the result is worse lecture and grade. However, in a class where students do some of the talking, everyone would feel excited about giving their ideas and questions every time they want. This leads to a better atmosphere of studying and makes school-time actually, like many adults often say, “the best time of one’s lives”.
Finally, when students can do some of the talking in classes, they acquire more knowledge and feel more interested. Because of such important reasons, I prefer those classes to the ones in which teachers lecture (do all of the talking).
Please comment and rate this essay for me. Thank you!
16. Nature is a best teacher"as this phrase suggets, one will always need a medium to learn new things and new ideas.
Personally I belive that one can learn better with a teacher rather learning alone by oneself.
when you are studing alone you will have lot of questions to be answered,also if you are solving a problem and stuck some where then teacher can be a best guide to answer or solve a problem.According to me teacher can be any medium like school teacher, your parents,friends,books or surrounding nature.
In my country teacher is consider as a "God" beause teacher is a source of knowledge and power.In my opnion one should alway learn more form teacher as they have more experience in life.To support my choise I wold like to share one incindent when I was studing in Architecture collage.Once in collage we had been given one assinment. Most of the students couldnt come to the solution. we almost refered all the books avalible but fail to come to a solution. Then we went our professor and he gave us some clues to solve it and the reference of the another book so you can imagine if we had to solve the problem alone it could have taken ages.
In conclusion to learn more accuratlely and thoroughly teacher is a good medium,Who is always there to guide you in the dark and protect you in harsh sun.
With this topic , i have some opinions .
Firtly , in the sentence : "Nature is a best teacher"as this phrase suggets, one will always need a medium to learn new things and new ideas.Personally I belive that one can learn better with a teacher rather learning alone by oneself . I think that i will write "nature is the best teacher ( replace "a" by"the" because "best" is a superlative comparison ) is as this phrase suggestion , one will always need a medium to learn new things and new ideas .Pe
