Bayu, I hate to say this but, you really misunderstood what the prompt meant by a media-rich society. You concentrated your essay on the television, which is one of the oldest forms of media. While that is one of the correct responses of the essay, the more proper response would have been for you to consider the new face of media or the "media-rich" which is composed of television, mobile phones, tablets, laptops, smart watches, etc. All of these are part of the new era of mass media. Therefore, you should have given your essay a more generalized direction, not really concentrating on a single form of media alone.

That said, you need to revise the essay to reflect the correct definition of "media" and "media-rich". What you will need to do is write a new essay that discusses the advantage and disadvantage from that angle. Your discussion about the television can actually be rephrased in order to apply the focus more on mass media. You have some pretty solid lines of reason in this essay so you don't need to do too much rewriting to correct it.

Your conclusion is also quite short and improperly discussed. As you know, it is important that the conclusion merely be a summary of the essay. It is unacceptable to have the writer present new ideas, as you did in this essay because adding new ideas prevents the conclusion of the line of reasoning in the essay. So you need to further develop that discussion and then add another paragraph that properly closes the essay instead.

Hallo Mr. Bayu,
I intend you offer some suggestion for your writing.


Television is an obligation in every home these days. People have been seriously affected by this kind of media in their life. Although the benefit like receive information more fast help us to keep up to date, the drawbacks such as severe habits due to the effect of television programs had outweigh the merit.

Regarding hook
By and large, hook emerging in the first sentence represents a general notion or idea. However, you have mentioned directly as a particular topic. As seen on the question, we are discussing with regard to rich-media, not solely television.

Here is my suggestion:
Media plays a pre-eminent role in humans being. Likewise, a wide range of influence created by media cannot probably be shunned on everyday life as people arguably pay attention. Regarding this issue, I believe that this development gives rise to benefit including receiving information directly so as to keeping up to date although the dire consequence such as emerging severe behavior can be obtained

This topic is Media-rich society, but i don't get the point from your essay, i thought your essay just focus on television. You should understand the topic more clearly due to out off topic :)

Some advice for your introduction :
1. Background = media
2. Hook =general opinion or idea
3. Thesis statement = advantages or disadvantages

Keep writing... Thankyou :)
