Please describe your writing and communication skills, indicating particular strengths or weaknesses (100 words or less)
As an international student, English is my second language. When I came to Canada, I need talk with my teacher in English and write essays in English. At beginning, it is quite difficult, but with teahcers and friends's help, I overcome many troubles. When I communicate with others, I always follow my rule which is "Listen quickly and speak slowly", thus I can communicate more easily. When I write some essays, I need use foreigners thoughts not my navtie thoughts, because two cultures are different. I need develop this as time goes on.
Your first paragraph has two main problems.
First, your writing is a little vague in the way that if we omit the word "economics" is difficult to understand what you really like or what are you talking about.
"Economics is my favourite subject among all the other subjects". what could be other subjects? Biology, criminology ? ... At least you can mentioned some of them or tell in the field of social sciences I prefer economics.
You could start like this;
I would like to improve my knowledge in economics, as a part of social sciences that analyse the ...
Later, the art also can have a strong connection with our life and / or psychology can analyse many of the human interactions, why you do not like those.
In other part "economics can help you for a better understanding of the world", an fact or opinion from you, which is very general.
Then try to explain different aspect of economics with more and deliberate explanation.
As an academic writing you can conclude your paragraph like:
If I have opportunity to choose a major in university, I would like to choose the economics as my major.
You also use some complex and sometimes wrong words such as "globalizationer"
Do not entangle yourself on complex words.
In second paragraph you forgot the economics and started with "management", moreover "how to know people can think and act" is not the main role of the manager, and a psychologist can do it better. Therefore that cannot be a reason to choose this subject.
In academic writing or even speaking avoid give the reminiscence, unless you want to give an examples for supporting your main idea usually at the end of the paragraph. Try to be more precise.
I think the better thing is to use smaller sentences and try to express your main idea at that first part if the sentence, followed by developing the main idea and then examples.
" I found management interesting, because I have some background, which can help me to be a good manager..."
" management is a challenging job which would fit with some of my qualification or qualities..."
" Management can help me to improve some of my qualities to be a business leader..."
The parts like "Listen quickly and speak slowly", sounds good.
keep on try
Thank you very much:)
Awesome, Aria! I am impressed. Thanks for being here and making EssayForum better. I am going to go help with one of your essays right now...
Always strive for efficiency. This sentence is completely unnecessary: Economics is my favorite subject among all the other subjects.
When writing less is always more. That is the same for all communication, and it is why Yoda and Zen masters talk in short sentences.
Holy Moly, I have never seen the word globalizationer, and I think it is not good! :-)
When I came to Canada, I needed to talk...
I suppose the deadline for submitting this has already passed last month. :\
Nevertheless, I think you need to correct this :
In addition, economics is closely connected with some subjects like business studies, politics which I am also interested about.
I think I will know more about economics if I go to university.
Do not ever show that you yourself are confused about your objectives. Try to be confident and sure about yourself.
