June 24, 2019 / By Gifard
Question: My English Teacher recently told me my English Essays were illogical. They all had the required information and took the form of an English Essay. My teacher will not explain to me what the true problem is. So Is their a book or website you can refer me to that may help me with my pursuit of Logical English? If so would so kindly write the name of this book and the author? or the websites URL.

When I was preparing students for the both the Cambridge and Michigan University Lower and Proficiency Exams, consistancy in the compositions and oral interviews mattered above all. Now the lower levelled national exams were all based on British English, so here you have a student who has been learning to spell a certain way over at least a 5 year period, and all the sudden they are expected to remember all the differences for the most important exams of all. Cambridge University was more strict in marking the differences than Michigan was, but the Cambridge Exams are more theory-based, and the Michigan highlight an ease with use in the second language. The newer London University Exams are hit and miss, spelling doesn't even count if it does not take away from the understanding of what has been written. To answer your question, it goes both ways...but you are right to be annoyed at being corrected by people who do not realize there are a fair amount of differences between the two languages (British and American English) and that both are correct. When I see questions or answers I can barely understand because of spelling errors, it makes my skin crawl, but I try to remember this may be a person who is still in the process of learning English...the only forgivable excuse. And some people were just never able to further their education and/or never needed to write much in the jobs they have had over the years, I don't mind their making mistakes, either...it is understandable. So are type-o's. Some peple are just serious dickwads, yaknows? Reall hi and mitey and think there hot shite an all dat, and everyone else shud be and look and smell and talk and write just like'em...

Your delight at connecting with Chitra comes across loud and clear as you've written it, so I've "edited" your writing very slightly, mainly punctuation. Thank you so much, dear Chitra! My English is not that good---but thanks anyway. ;-) We've been living in Esfahan for about 15 years. It's okay. :) My dad is Fazolah. Do you remember him? :) Have a look at my photos. There are some pics of my dad, the uncles, your dad, my mom :) and my sister and brother. My dad told me that when he was 19 he took Chehreh out to dinner and the cinema. I bet she remembers him. :D I would like to continue my studies; however, at this point I'm not sure about it, whether I will stick to a job or to studies. :) Yes, I used to see your father. He's such an adorable man! I do love him. Actually, no one who has met him can help loving him! :-) I'm only sorry I haven't been lucky enough to see him more often. And I just found your sister's profile on here but guess she's not active. :) Japan! Wow! Japan is my dream land! :D I'm so in love with their music industry, you wouldn't believe it! :D You too keep in touch. You and Chehreh were always such mysterious characters to me as I never got a chance to see you. :( It's so good to find you on here! You too tell me more about yourself. I hope one day you'll come here, to my country.

You forgot to put an "a" in front of social security system twice. Also, "the" goes before "Japanese" when you're talking about the people. The sentence "in order to make society for elderly people to live in comfort..." could be improved by re-stating it, like "In order to make society for the elderly more comfortable, we should improve things like the pension that's provided." The next sentence sounds a little choppy, so you might re-arrange it. Perhaps you should take out "against", as "to fight the issue" makes more sense. You should also add "the" in front of "low birth rate." Next, put a period at the end of the sentence I just spoke of. The sentence after that one can do fine on it's own. With the exception of "because." However, I would change it to "We need the young workers that would come of this to increase funding for an aging society." On the next paragraph, you need to put "a" in front of "society." I would change "their retirements" to "they retire." Use either "on the other hand" or "however", together they sound redundant. Add "in terms of what..." before "to do when they get old." Change "make plans about what to do..." into "...make plans in regards of what we do.." On the next sentnce, it might be a good idea to use "create a society..." instead of "make" again. At the end of that sentence, use either "... that they can enjoy." or " that they can use to live their lives well." On the last paragraph, add an "a" before "social.." and "society.." The last sentence almost sounds like a you want them to take hostile action against the elderly. Perhaps you should add " ... the problems facing our aging society in this century." All in all, though, I must compliment you on your English. Keep up the good work. I hope I become as fluent as you seem to be in my second language.

Because you have learned english, and this is very common among people who learn english as a second language, you will tend to leave out certain parts of speech that help the sentence flow. For example "I believe that we should build up good social security system for elderly people" you have left out the article in that sentence which is "a". So the sentence should read "I believe that we should build up a good social security system for elderly people..." Also some of your sentences make sense but are gramatically ackward. I would change this sentence "However, on the other hand, we can't deny the fact that there are a number of people who do not have any plan to do when they get old" to " However, we can't deny that there are a large number of people who do not have plans for retirement." I dont know what your using this essay for, or how old you are but if your using this for High School or College I would def think about taking out the part that says "I would like to point out why I feel this way in details in the following sentences." This is a very young style of writing and something they do not encourage in college. I hope I helped!

What is the most serious issue we need to be aware of today? When I think about this question, aging society comes to my mind first. I believe that we should build up good social security system for elderly people and create society where they can live their lives to the fullest. I would like to point out why I feel this way in details in the following sentences. First, we need to work on making good social security system for elderly people. For example, from Japanese point of view, it has been said that a large number of people are worried about their futures after they retire. In order to make society for elderly people to live in comfort, we should improve social security system like pension. For that purpose, the government is required to fight (((((againt)))))) the issue of low birthrate we experience today, because we need your workers to sustain increasing social security fund for aging society. Second, we should create society in which aged people can enjoy their lives fully after their retirements. It is true that some people have what they want to do in their minds after they quit their jobs. However, on the other hand, we can't deny the fact that there are a number of people who do not have any plan to do when they get old. I think that it is important for us to make plans about what to do after retiring. Therefore, we need to make society which can provide elderly people with a number of things they can enjoy to live their lives well. To sum it up, we need to make good social security system and create society where elderly people can enjoy their lives. The examples above are just two of many and they lead me to believe that we are expected to take action against aging society in this century. AGAINT IS SUPPOSE TO BE AGAINST. The thing I parenthesized.
