Hi everyone! Welcome at EssayForum thread.

Hi guys...
I'm Phuong, but I like to be called Pool. I'm from Vietnam.
I expect to get 7-7.5 IELTS but I always find it hard in writing. Hopefully with this forum, I can improve my skills. Love to know all of you...

Hi All, I'm studying for a college test that includes two essays. One 30 opinion based essay on either a topic or a quote, and the other a 40 minute essay with provided sources to quote from and back up my arguments. The essays are each supposed to be 5 paragraphs, around 600 words, with an Intro, 3 points, and a conclusion. I'm struggling with the length. Do any of you have suggestions on how I can lengthen my essays without being redundant?
As I write here , I am new here in canada. And still I am struggling for admission for masters in mechanical. I have already evaluated my degree and diploma certificates from WES ( WORLD EDUCATION SERVICES). I have also 9 years exp in the industry. Every time I tried for job but got only " LABOUR JOB ".

Update your resume on Linkedin.
You can also give International tester exam (ISTQB) that will help you to get into the industry though i am not sure what do u have to do for raising working visa in Canda.

Another option join any short term certificate course that will provide you 12 OR 6 MONTH work permission in America or Canada to get into the industry.

You got to make little adjustment with your demands, but once you enter ..you would have long way to go.

Good Luck
Greetings from the Pacific NorthWest! I'm in need to improve, looking for advice


I am happy I found this forum. I am a 44 years old, married male in his first quarter of college. I am looking forward to all the advice and help I can get as I haven't participated in formal education since 1987. I have rudimentary grammar skills and realize 50 minutes a day in English 99 isn't going to cut it for me. My Professor does a decent job but moves a bit faster than I would like at time. My college does have a free tutor center as well as a Writers studio but I find at times the wait is a bit long. So don't be too surprised if I post a Essay or Report now and then. As I improve I hope to help give advice now and then to others.

First, welcome to EF!. Yes, you can become an active member here and get others feedbacks on your essays while contributing your share to help others improve :)
A newcomer need your help.

I'm not a very good student at English. And my writting cannot be so good as others.As a student of grade 12, i have to prepare for the coming exam, so i'm afraid that writting can cost me a lot of time so i cannot do well in the exam. Although, i take A1,D1 and i know that English is very important, especially when they decide to put Writting in the test. I used to think that i can improve my skill after having applied for the university, so i didn't paid much time for that. And the changes in the university exam really confused me. I live in Gia Lai, so, it is obvious that, our English is not good, despite the fact that my English is better than lots of my friend's ( not trying to show off anything ), but it is terrible to most of you. You are reading my writting so maybe you know that what is my level of English, is it too bad??? Please help me with my writting, i'm a newcomer and I really need your help, what should i do?

p/s: i'm very thankful if you can help me correct my mistakes.

Your English isn't that bad for a non native speaker. Your grammar needs a lot of correction. For example- *writing not writting, *didn't pay. I would suggest taking a look at some grammar book to learn the basics of grammar and sentence formation. Yes, you do need to focus on sentence formation. Other suggestion would be reading newspapers, random articles on the web, magazines, etc. Trust me, it will help a lot.

You're welcome!

Hi Mk,

Welcome to EF, it is indeed interesting to be a part of EF. You are in the right place in enhancing your language and writing skills.

We ask you to write more and read more as well, this enhances your vocabulary and opens your world to a lot of possibilities.
When you write, think about your readers, what do you want them to know, the purpose of your essay, stay with facts and keep
researching too.

Once you have an idea of what to write, make a draft, proof read it and make sure that you turn your spell check on.

We expect you to write soon Mk.
