TOEFEL ESSAYS(Is it better to have few friends or many friends?)


Is it better to have few friends or many friends?
 Essay Score: 5.0/6.0
This essay has 293 words.
I think I prefer to have many different friends because we can learn more from having many different types of friends. If we have just a few close friends, then we cannot learn as much as we can if we have many friends. Therefore, I think it is better to have many different friends.
First, having many different friends can teach us about life and the world. I think you can learn many things about many different countries if you know people from all over the world. For example, if you have a friend from China and one from Iran, you can learn more about those two countries. If you just have friends from your country, then you do not learn very much about the world.
We can also have many different kinds of experiences if we have many different kinds of friends. For example, some people like sports, others like music, still others like to study. If we have many different friends with many different interests, then we can never feel bored and we can have a happy life.
Finally, if we have many different friends, then maybe we can have more help from people when we need it. For example, if we need some kind of help with something, but we don’t know too many people, then it might be difficult for us to get help. However, if we know many people, then it will be easy for us to find help when we need it.
Therefore, I believe that it is better to have many different friends in our lives. Having many friends can teach us about the world, we can have more fun with different friends, and we can get help more easily if we have many different friends.

TOEFEL ESSAYS(Is reading and writing more important now than it was in the past?)


Is reading and writing more important now than it was in the past?


It is a very dangerous thing to say that basic literacy skills are more important now than they have ever been in the past. While a strong argument can be made in favor of this idea, making such an argument would imply that reading and writing were somehow less important in the past. While there is a grain of truth to the argument that literacy was not fundamental to the daily existence of most people in the pre-Industrial Revolution period, rationalizing such a lack of need for education in such a way is the first step to withholding education from certain groups, a great social crime that has led to the disempowerment of disadvantage groups all over the world throughout history. However, if we can keep in mind that education is a basic human right, then we can discuss the strengths of the proposition that literacy is more important now than it has ever been before.
It is true that in the past the majority of people all over the world made their livelihood from agricultural activities and that the vast majority of these activities required little or no literacy skills. In some senses, we could argue that literacy skills were less important in the agricultural age than they are now, but to do so would be to forget that literacy also reflects an active mind and that people have always needed to engage in activities of the mind. For example, even though a farmer might have labored all day in her corn field, she may enjoy reading the latest Jane Austen novel when arrived at home. We can see in this example that while literacy was not directly related to this laborer's livelihood, literacy was important to her quality of life.
However, we could make a good argument that literacy is more important now that it was in the past. As we all know, the world is experiencing a revolution that may turn out to be more important than the Industrial Revolution. We are now entering the Information Age, an age in which information and knowledge have more value than the ability to build machines, create "stuff," grow crops, or even mine precious metals and produce gemstones. Nowadays, accurate information may be worth more than the most expensive Rolls-Royce or the biggest diamond. The perfect example of this increasing dominance is the explosive rise in the popularity of the Internet--the Internet offers the world countless bytes of information twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Companies all over the world, but principally in the United States, are rushing to stake their claim in cyberspace and stiff competition among companies has resulted. In order to gain dominance, these companies must have the best-skilled workers, an advanced understanding of computer systems, and good intuition about what will happen in the future. All of these abilities to compete in the global marketplace stem directly from literacy skills and those without these skills will be stuck in the service, agricultural, and heavy industry fields.
In short, we can see that people in the past who were lacking in literacy skills essentially had more company than those lacking these skills have today and could still earn their livelihood. Further, we could argue that because of the nature of the global marketplace and because of the emergence of the Information Age, we could make the argument that literacy is fundamental to professional success nowadays. However, literacy should be considered a basic human right in a literate society--all people throughout history should have learned to read and write.

For ages, reading and writing has been vital aids to the intellectual, emotional and spiritual growth of mankind. But with rapid changes in the society and scientific advancement of human race over the decades, the necessity and importance of reading and writing has increased remarkably.
Several reasons account for the lesser importance of reading and writing in the past. Firstly, education was restricted to certain sections of the society and not everyone benefited from its advantages. Only the learned few enjoyed intellectual satisfaction. Knowledge was not shared freely due to lack of proper means of communication, thus preventing many from realizing the benefits of education and learning. Secondly, technology was not so advanced in the past. Hence the general pace of life was slower than it is now and people did not feel the need to keep themselves abreast of affairs around them. In other words, the need did not arise for mass awareness and participation in efforts for intellectual enlightenment through reading and writing. Nevertheless, writing was a more popular than reading since it was the most common means of communication - in the form of letters.
However, at present the scenario has changed considerably. Innovation and change are integral parts of life. Now advancement in technology marks the day. To cope up with the rapidly evolving new ideas and concepts, reading has become more important now than ever before. Invention of high-tech gadgets and state-of-the-art information systems in areas of communication, transport and general business demands more awareness about contemporary events and changes With advancement in technology, man's eagerness to succeed has increased. Consequently the realization has dawned on him that such dreams can be materialized through intellectual advancement - a feat possible only through self reading and personal research. With the invention of computer has commenced an age of electronic communication and online commerce. Although writing letters has decreased considerably with the advent of electronic mail, it will take some time to make our varied businesses paperless. Thus though reduced, people still do some writing, wither in forms of documents, memorandums, business contracts or research papers. Education has made people more aware of his potential and reading and writing has become instrumental to man's success in today's competitive world.

While some countries have strong programs against illiteracy, others still do not care that much. But, illiteracy has become a big obstacle during the last century and is still problematic question now with quick development of technology and automation. From my everyday experience and observation I can state several factors which defend the statement that reading and writing now is more important than ever before.
First of all, it is essential for a person to have at least basic knowledge of reading and writing to survive in our society. While in the past, some people could live in wilderness or even in cities without any knowledge of written language, now it is almost impossible. The way of living has change so much that it is impossible to be a part of nation, especially in developed countries, without ability to read and write your bills, to understand your mortgage documents or job applications. Moreover, you can go nowhere by yourself but in your own small town without reading the maps and signs on the roads and in cities.
Second, nowadays, most of jobs require reading and writing as necessary skills and tendency that these skills will be more and more important for future jobs increases. In fact, because of sharp development of technology, more of jobs on the labor market are for literate people and less of them are for people without any or slight reading or writing knowledge. For example, there are not needed so much people who can work on lands or select parts in auto-factories because the machines do that kinds of jobs now. On the other hand, factories and corporations need people who can read the instructions and control the machines. It is bare true that without jobs that need only physical abilities, illiterate people are forced to be constantly on unemployment lists.
In conclusion, the most scare part of living illiterate in our society is maybe living dependable of someone. A illiterate person will have difficulties not only to do simple tasks such as writing bills, withdrawing money from cash machines, or reading menu in a restaurant, but also to be a productive and useful individual of our society with job and normal life.

I think that reading and writing is more important now than in the past. Many factors influenced to make the written expression more useful and necessary at present than in the past.
The world is changing. Information became essential, and the world is getting into a sort of communication age. A great part of this communication is written. The summary of the information, about the human knowledge, is written either in books or computer s files.
Since ancient times, men and women devoted their lives to survive and fight against nature's limitations and dangers.
They had to discover a solution for each new problem, and this is the way the civilizations began. They developed the languages to transmit knowledge, and as a need. Consequently, they needed a way to communicate and file this pool of knowledge.
At first, to read and write was only a possibility to some whose activity required it, and it was restricted to privileged people who could afford it, or get it (because of the long distances, and the availability of teachers)
Now all has changed. Women were seen only as wives whose only work was at home, and as mothers whose life should be centered on the children's care.
Today, not only read and write is essential, but also some computer skills (at least basic), among others, are seen as basic education.
There are thousands of examples, just to name some If you can't read, you could not get informed, and you can t even search for work. You could walk at the front of the windows of potential employers (who are usually asking for "help"), without notice; newspaper s adds offering jobs wouldn't be any more than paper for you. You could get irradiated inadvertently (even the information about the caution signaling, is written!).
You wouldn't even be able to visit a city without getting lost, otherwise you d have to ask people how to get everywhere. A funny proverb goes as follows "word contracts doesn't even worth the paper in which they're written", but you would never know what you are about to sign, except for what they say it says. And so on. All these situations were not so common in the past, villages were small, people trusted in other people's word, nobody traveled so much, and all knew their own town good enough. Dangerous situations were easy to recognize, unlike radioactivity, for example.
To conclude, for all the above reasons, I am convinced that read and write, is very very much important now than in the past. Otherwise I would not be here, it became so important that I have to learn how to read and write not only in my language but in a second language too. That's life (today)!

 estimated score: 5.0/6.0:
Good ideas and organization, but does not address the 'point' of the topic.
There is no doubt that Man is a social creature. As human beings, we always need to communicate with others. Communication methods took different shapes. The ancient man used his body and voice to express his fears and delights. When paper was invented, a basic form of writing was used to document thoughts. Nowadays, computer facilities, such as e-mail, appear to be the coming generation of communication methods.
In my opinion, it is the need for communication and interaction that determines the importance of reading and writing. In the past, it was satisfying to people to just communicate with neighbors. Many people never left their village, so they knew nothing about the outside world. However, they were both socially and economically satisfied. Today, as the whole world becomes a small village, the human discovery desire is stimulated. Few people are still considering local relationships enough. Most people are looking forward to establishing new overseas relations. Because traditional communication ways fail to carry such global messages, new ways are used, beginning from letters and faxes and ending with the use of computers and the Internet. This has raised the importance of reading and writing as a strict prerequisite of such modern facilities.
No one can deny the role of reading and writing in developing our style of life. One's life is as long as the lives of the authors of books he reads. Reading and writing also adds to our relationships with other people. Firstly, books we read suggest topics to discuss with others. Secondly, from books we can learn nice and polite behavior to interact with people. Thirdly, reading increases our ability to understand people. For example, we can face some hard or embarracing situation that we previously read about, so our approach to it will be better. Lastly, the age of our relationships can be longer. Consider, for instance, a friend travelling abroad. Writing to him can keep up the friendship till later eye contact. The previous benefits of reading and writing are independent of time. The message to be conveyed is that reading and writing was also important in the past.
Of course, the role of reading and writing is not restricted to helping people to communicate. To be useful to himself and to his society, man should be able to read and write. But what I want to stress is that reading and writing is a NEED not just a peripheral. This fact is time independent

TOEFEL ESSAYS (Think of a new holiday ???)


Think of a new holiday.
Notes from Class: Raise your score to a 4.0
Note: Some students have a hard time learning how to write a basic essay. Most of the notes from this class show how to raise our essay scores from a 2.0 to a 4.0.
What is the point of the topic?
Essentially, this topic asks us to think of something that has been overlooked (ignored) by people in our country.
Ideas
We were able to come up several good ideas for new holidays. Here are the best ones (the ones that are easiest to write about but are also interesting) from class:
  • Reading Day
  • Flower Day
  • Plant Day
  • Grandmother's Day
  • Pet Day
The Best Topic: Walking Day
Nuch came up with this idea. This is a great idea because we can talk about several important things:
First, people need to exercise more in their lives and walking is a good way to do this.
Second, by walking instead of driving or using public transportation, people can reduce pollution and thereby protect the environment.
Finally, by walking, people are deliberately slowing down their lives. This is a good way to reduce stress and learn to think about our lives.
If you would like to write on another topic, I think "reading day" is the second best choice.
Outline
For this kind of topic we can write three topics sentences and then make those sentences into paragraphs.
This is what we did in class:
(Introduction)
·        First, walking is good exercise.
·        Second, by walking, we can reduce pollution and thereby protect the environment.
·        Third, by walking, people can slow down the pace of their lives.
·        Finally, we could celebrate this holiday by encouraging people to walk instead of driving or taking the bus for at least one trip during the day.
(Conclusion)
Here, we essentially have the outline for our essay. The next step is to add some more sentences to complete the essay. Here's an example of how would could do that:
 Estimated Score: 5.5/6.0
Most countries already have many holidays. In my country, Taiwan, we have nineteen official holidays. However, I believe that my new holiday, "Walking Day" would be very beneficial and should be added to the nineteen holidays Taiwan already has. In this essay, I will outline the three main reasons why "Walking Day" would be a very good holiday.
First, walking is good exercise. As we all know, people all over the world are becoming busier and busier. They are studying more and more so that they can have better jobs. When they work, they are working more and more. As a result, people have less time for other important things in their lives, including exercise. We can read reports in the newspapers everyday about people who have worse health and complain about poor health condition. Many of these problems could be reduced by exercising more and walking is one of the best and simplest exercises for people.
Second, by walking, we can reduce pollution and thereby protect the environment. As technology improves all over the world and people have more and more money, they are starting to use this money to buy automobiles. As a result, people are using public transportation less and less. Driving one's own car every day has had a very large impact on the environment as a result of the pollution created by gas burning automobiles. Walking is the perfect way to reduce pollution since there are so many other benefits as well.
Finally, by walking, people can slow down the pace of their lives. Perhaps this is one of the greatest benefits of walking more. Life at the beginning of the new millennium is stressful--people are competing with each other for better jobs, countries and companies are competing with each other for business. Many people start to forget about the importance of slowing down in their lives, of simply enjoying the moment. People need to contemplate life more. Walking is a perfect opportunity to slow down, think about life, and simply enjoy the big, beautiful world that we live in.
Finally, we could celebrate this holiday by encouraging people to walk instead of driving or taking the bus for at least one trip during the day. I believe that people could find at least one trip during the day that they could make on foot instead of some other form of transportation. For example, if people usually drive to a large supermarket to buy food, perhaps they could walk to a closer, smaller market to buy only a few things. I believe that while people were walking, they would be able to enjoy the exercise and the fresh air and would be able to think calmly and clearly.
In short, if I had to create a new holiday, I would create "Walking Day" because of the many simple benefits it could provide us.

I disagree wholeheartedly that learning about the past has no value for those of us living in the present. In fact, the definition of learning includes the idea of an accumulation of experiences from the past. Learning can only take place if we make an association between things that have happened in the past or between something in the past and something that we predict will happen in the future. All knowledge that we acquire as we grow is from the past—language, customs, academic subjects, and so on. While it may be helpful sometimes to be able to overlook previous knowledge in order to avoid the constraint conformity, the vast majority of knowledge that we learn is a huge boost—imagine if each of us had to discover by ourselves that 2 + 2 = 4! So, in a very real sense, all learning depends on past events.
We are only able to live in this world with our current standard of living because we have learned from the past. We receive knowledge from the past and we are able to use it and improve it. We examine our actions in the past and we make judgments about what was right and what was wrong. Then, it is hoped, we will attempt to avoid those same mistakes again. For example, one of the great mistakes all over the world has been depriving women and the disempowered classes status in society and many industrialized and developing countries all over the world are attempting to avoid such mistakes both in the present and in the future.
Furthermore, all of the knowledge that we have today is a result of all the work of our predecessors. The ancient Greeks developed geometry, which helped other European scientists analyze the solar system, which in turn gave us a new understanding of our place in the universe. The great majority of technology today depends directly on several thousands of years of work of past thinkers. To ignore the knowledge of the past would be to throw away five thousand years of history and experience.
There is, however, some seemingly small, but important value to ignoring the past. It is often the case that history or tradition has the effect of constraining our thought in the present and many important philosophical and scientific breakthroughs have only been possible as a direct result of ignoring the past. The past, in a sense, can blind us to the truth, we can become bound by tradition. For example, at one time, leading thinkers in Europe thought that the Earth was at the center of the universe and those who disagreed were persecuted as heretics, even Copernicus, who we now know was correct about his heliocentric model of the Solar System. However, scientists were eventually able to break from the past and accept the new model of the universe.
In short, learning from and analyzing the past has enormous value for us and life as we know it on Earth today would not be possible without the benefit of thousands of years of history and accumulated knowledge. It is important, however, to ignore the past so that we can make a step forward, and such free thinking should be encouraged, although not at the expense of past knowledge. Learning from the past is something like learning from our parents—in most cases, their past helps us have a better future, but there are times when we need to make a break from the past and make a bold step into an unknown future.

Original Essay
  Comments-├áin red color
The nobleness & the use of progress in any field, to an individual, or to the society on the whole, will depend on what use the progress is being put to, and I feel, cannot be generalized as stated above.
One of the most common errors is committed in this introduction--failure to restate the topic.
Progress has been inherent with the human race. As the human brain developed, so has progress been achieved, in almost all fields known to man. The cultural progress over the ages, have made humans better and made this world, a better place to live in. Similarly, scientific progress has been effective in eradicating diseases, providing better food crops, facilitating transportation etc. Literary progress has helped us better document our history and has produced works that have made us think. Progress in communication techniques have converged this whole world of ours, into the 'global village'.
More specific examples would strengthen this paragraph. If we look at the above examples, we see that they are all aimed at the betterment of our world. Here progress is being applied for the society's good.
This paragraph seems like a topic sentence and should be included in another paragraph. The products from the same progress in the various fields, when in wrong hands, wreak havoc in the same society that they are supposed to make better.
Again, this paragraph is a topic sentence and might better be included with the following paragraph. Sophisticated arms & explosives in the hands of terrorists & children, science of human cloning in the hands of scientists, crop control technologies in the hands of corporations etc., are some of the examples of how progress can go wrong. Think of how much better the world would be, without nuclear and biological weapons, without mutated food grains et al. Think of how many people would not have died or maimed for life, if there had been no land mines ? After witnessing the destructive use the Dynamite could be put to, Alfred Nobel himself repented his own creation of Dynamite so much that he set up the Nobel prize, to be awarded to people who work for the betterment of the human society.
The ideas of this paragraph are good, but they could be better organized for smoother transitions. The example of the invention of dynamite is a good example, but the writer should explain how dynamite was considered progress in the first place. Therefore, it is my strong contention that progress is only good when it is put to the right use, for the betterment and upliftment of the individual and the society, on a whole. Progress put to any ulterior uses should be outrightly condemned. There are some language errors here, specifically the words upliftment and outrightly. However, this conclusion is good and the ideas are good.

Good ideas and organization, but too many spelling mistakes and not enough support or development for the ideas.
Alll over the world people are welcoming progress into their home, their business and their education. Larg corporations use progress in technology, industries use progress in their manufacture process. How ever, when we think about in larger picture, it is clear that progress can be damaging in some cases. We as asociety have to check ourselfs once and a while to make sure, that the progress is not making to much damage to certain communities around the world.
Speaking as a member of avery spacial community called a Kibbutz, which used to provid to our poeple from the agriculture products we grow in our own feilds, and sell in markets. When progress came to our country, many industries got stronger, and farmers like ourselfs found their selfs without a future for their agriculture investment, that they worked and built for years. In this case progress has damaged a larg community, and made them face a hard finencial fueture.
Another unfourtunate veiw on progress, is the use of computures to entertain children. In the year 2000, when every home has adopted the progress in computures, children find themselfs sitting long hours infront of the compure instead of playing outside or inviting friends over. This way of spending to much time on the computure is very damaging to thier social skills, and even a reason for weight gain amoung young children.
After looking at a differnt aspects of progress, i can say clearly, that progress has to be supervised. That in some cases progress is making a big damage for our society. People sould welcome progress in many feilds of life, but always have your eyes open for littel "land mines" that could make an unreversable situation and future.

Good writing, but misses the point--the essay represents the disadvantage of progress as something that might cause jealousy or envy in others.
Progress is, by definition, an improvement or a gradual development in a status of something. I believe that progress is a good thing as far as it does not create enemies amongst people. In this essay, I am going to clarify this.
When someone takes a step forward in particular field, people say "He is doing a great progress!" For example, when somebody gets cured from certain illness and shows good signs of improvement in health, it is the progress in his health. Students make progress after working hard on the subject. Workers achieve a good position in the company. It is their progress which gives them satisfaction and a good pay scale. This way progress is a thing which gives man satisfaction, happiness, wealth, power or honor.
However, sometimes this progress may be an unpleasant thing. It can be a reason of antipathy towards somebody who is getting ahead of us. It has been observed in the organizations that some employees have intense dislike for their successful fellow employees. This feeling creates anger and in some cases eventually a crime. Here starts the race and worries to stay ahead in this race. Sometimes the situation is opposite. This means, when one of us reaches to a high position, he could get a feeling of too much self importance and show disregard towards others.
Well, as described above, in my opinion, progress is a pleasant thing until it does not create evils amongst us. We should admire others for their progress, then it is not too far from us also.

Good ideas, but the grammar mistakes and "non-English use of language" lower the score.
Some people say that progress is always a good thing. I think that it is not really true. I n this essay, I will argue against this view. I agree to that progress make our life good, but not ' always'.
The progress in technology sometimes give us negative impact on our life. Since industry revolution happened in Europe, Technological development has ever made our life more and more convenient, at same time, it also impact negatively on the world. Let us take automobile as an example. After automobiles were invented. the transportation has been improved very much, but simultaneously, our environment has been polluted badly with discharging waste gas, and situation becomes worse and worse. Second example is progress in chemical industry and medicine manufacture. These kinds of products provide us plastic products that have improved our routine life, such as plastic kitchen utensils and plastic bag used in supermarket. On the other hand, when these products were produced , a lot of waste material spewed out to atmosphere and into the river. this negative effect is great influence on our earth.
some technological progress will be subject to a disaster to human being. Everybody in the world has known that nuclear weapon that some country has kept can destroy our world many times. Majority of scientist just wanted to provided a new power resource for people's life, it will be a clean, free of pollution and high efficient power source in fact, it indeed is our current useful power power resource. However, huge threat is in front of us, a single disagreement between the super power countries can trigger the disaster. In this case, the negative impact of the progress in nuclear technology will outweigh the advantage of that.
Based on abovementioned, I will be in favor of that progress is not always a good thing, sometimes it will give us negative impact.

Starts off strong, but does not show that progress is bad; shows only that progress is good.
Some people think that progress is always a good thing. I don't agree with this point of view. In my opinion progress is only a good thing under certain circumstances, not always. A progress may encourage people and may make people become more confident. In this case, it's a good thing. A progress may also give some guy a feeling that he's so good, then he just becomes arrogant and stops making efforts. If this happens, a progress may not be a good thing.
Almost all of us went to schools. I'll take a student as an example. If a student has been working very hard but he keeps receiving not so good scores, he may become diffident and lose his courage. It'll be a disaster for someone if he doesn't have his confidence and courage, which everybody will need to face some challenges sooner or later. He is bound to lose at school or later at career without confidence and courage. A better score is a progress for him, which will encourage him and help him to win his self-confidence back, with which he'll succeed.
If the student gets an excellent, better than ever score, he's made a progress. What does the progress reflect? His past efforts, helps from other teachers and classmates, etc. The progress only reflects the past, not the future. Some people just don't realize this and assume they'll be good for ever. If one stops making efforts, he's not going make any future
progresses. In another word, he'll lose his future successes.
In conclusion, it is my opinion that progress is sometimes a good thing, but it may also turn out to be a loss if it's not treated properly. Therefore, I disagree with the assertion that progress is always a good thing.

On-topic and well-written, but needs development. This essay is essentially a good introduction.
Certainly, fifty years ago life was not as easy at it seems to be now. Communication, technology, medicine, living standards are incredibly different from the ones our parents and great parents got to know. Progress is a phenomenon that amazes us day after day and it is without hesitation a daily concern.
Our lives have turn to be easy going, not really demanding and comfort has just become a daily duty. Computers, cellular phones, and the most advanced technology is invading our privacy, and seem to be more than necessary to keep us going. Years, ago their needs were not as much as ours now, they could live, with
less comfort but with more peace, and the stress to obtain materials goods was not a priority in lives.

It is true the fact that progress changed our parents passive world into our daily active one, based in incomes and in competitions. It is good to feel we are part of this new world, capable to offer a great variety of options, capable to let us choose our best. Live without progress, in all senses would not be a life, and the challenging spirit of men would not be meaningful with not progress at all.

  estimated score: 4.0/6.0
On-topic, but but would be stronger with more development in the third and fourth paragraphs.
I disagree of that statement because progress brings whit it a lot of good things but it also brings wrong ideas about our world and ourselves.
Throughout the years the human beings have got a lot of progress both in science and technology, which it has increased the understanding of our world and it has made our lives easier and comfortable. Only if you think in your home and all of the things you have in there, like microwave ovens, blenders, washing and drying machines, etc, you can find many examples of what man has got with new inventions and technologies. So it is medical researches that have found the cure for so many diseases that were before a sure death .
However, progress has led to develop many devices not good for humanity, like the massive destruction weapons, that are opposite to the principal right of the human beings: the right to live.
Hence, that it is important to think about progress in both sides good and not so good things when you evaluate its role for the people.

  estimated score: 4.0/6.0:
Very well written, but misses the point somewhat. The second paragraph talks about the value of hard work and the third paragraph shows how success can lead to complacence.
No, I do not agree with the notion that progress is always a good thing. There is no doubt that progress is something everyone wants but this doesn't necessarily mean that it is always good. In my opinion progress can do as much harm as it can do good. It all depends on the way someone takes his progress.
For instance, if a hard working person, who has been no stranger to struggle and failure, achieves progress, he understands that the progress he got is due to his perseverance. He realized the fact that progress can be made by working hard. So he will be encouraged to work even harder and make even more progress. In this case, progress has made a good impact on the person's life.
Now let's visualize another case. Suppose another man, who is not hard working and has had everything easy in his life also achieves progress. This is rather unlikely but we cannot rule out the possibility. Now this progress can have adverse effect on his mentality. Because he hasn't worked hard for it he might take his success for granted. This might lead to negligence in his work and this will eventually lead to his failure in more demanding work. When the failure does come the man may realize his mistake, but by then it might have become too late. So, this man has been spoilt by his initial progress.
Now these are only two examples and there are many more people with different attitudes towards life and hence will be affected differently by progress. So, owning to the number of people on this planet it is not hard to realize that progress is not always a good thing.

Some good ideas and writing, but "misses the point."
I don't think progress is always a good thing. Instead, it can be obstacles if we cannot deal well with it.
Sometimes, progress may keep people from learning from others. If we take too much pride in our progress, being too satisfied with it, we may stop improving. The thought of self-important may evokes, and thus keep us from being modest. People may begin to contempt the other people, not willing to listen to the ideas of others, and result in stay in the same position until they realize the problem. As we all know, China was once the leading country in the world in history, many nations admired the advanced technique in China at those days. So the kings took great pride in it, and became to be so self important that they decided to close the door to communicate with other countries during Qing Dynasty. Then we lost the opportunity to learn from others and we are left behind now.
The second, progress may cause jealousy from others and the progress-maker may be isolated. This happens most in the working environment. Progress will bring advantages such as position-promoted or salary-raised, this may caused trouble if the workmates envy you. That will be too bad.
So, if we make some progress, we must be aware of either ourselves or the people around us, to be modest, and to be alert with the potential plot lying ahead.

Does not address any topic in particular, some awkward language.
As there's an old saying "Practice makes perfect",I totally agree with the statement. Quiet a few peole may disagree with it because of its long period to make things right,and other petty things though.
I've experienced lots of events or some meeting situations,since I've been a captain in my class,and it was a really tough thing to make my friends harmonious. That means that whenever I had to extract only one opinion out of fifty friends' of mine, I felt the limitness of my ability to control my class. Because I wanted my friends to follow my opinion to make progress simple and easy, I usually quarrel with them,and make things scattered and more confused.

Therefore I realized that the progress is inevitable in social life and I changed my thought. After that, I could control my class much more easier than before actually. Through several discussions and debates,my friends and I could learn to repect other people's opinions and that make things much better and easier after all ,which means we managed to sustain generosity in our minds that made the whole situation smoothe and cheerful.
Therefore I think progress is always a good thing in retrospect of my past experiences that I refered above.

What to write about for a good score:
Like most things, progress is neither all good nor all bad. Progress has brought great advancements in standards of living, but it has also caused great damage to the Earth and its people in the form of environmental damage and more effective weaponry.
Most common error with this essay topic:
"Missing the point."
Some essays claim that progress is always a good thing, for example, in school or in one's career, but fail to talk about the sacrifices or disadvantages involved in making that progress.
Other essays missed the point in another way--they discussed how advancing in one field might coincidentally lead to misfortune, for example, moving to a new city because of a promotion at work and dying in a car accident in the new city. Such an event is not truly related to the progress; rather, it is simply an unfortunate coincidence.
Still other essays did not discuss "progress;" rather, they discussed "success" and the advantages and disadvantages of success rather than the advantages and disadvantages of progress.

TOEFEL ESSAYS (Parents are the best teachers )


PARENTS ARE THE BEST TEACHERS


In The Name Of God Most Gracious Most Merciful Parents Are The best Teachers
One day I’m watching T.V and there is a program talking about covering a huge dome with mosaic ornaments in Tajikistan, a very accurate work of art. The craftsman, who takes the responsibility of this job, spent twenty-seven years without finishing the work and he hopes that his child will! . I think that there are two kinds of knowledge spontaneous and experimental. The first one was the common knowledge of the human beings; it is what makes the difference between mankind and other species. The second was the knowledge gained by experience; it is what makes the difference among the individuals. We take our experimental knowledge from our community. Now lets imagine that the community was a big circle contains many small circles with the same center point and the smaller circle was our PARENTS. When the big circle was so small that it contains only our parents; I mean when the big circle was at the same time the small one, we will learn almost every thing from our parents and there will be a small change in our life from our parent’s life. We can see very small communities in some isolated villages in Africa where the whole tribe was one family and they all share the same knowledge through centuries. This will explain why the humanity take long time to change at the ancient world. In our new world the communication changed every thing the big circle; community, wasn’t only my town or country it is the whole world and my dependent on my parents changed. Certainly, there are differences from place to place; in the western world where children depends on themselves at early ages and they have the new communication tools they will get there knowledge more and more out of the small circle and they can change there community faster and faster. From where I came from the children depends on their parents until they marry and build a new circle where they were the center of it so they gate almost every thing concerning life from there parents. They learn language, mathematics, science in the school but they don’t learn real life there. In all countries east and west the parents will stay a very important stage of learning because they will always be the smaller circles the nearest one. It is part of our spontaneous knowledge.

This essay has nice organization and good ideas, but some of the language is a little bit awkward.
Parents influence greatly their children for a lifetime. I think people are molded by two factors, family and the society that they are in. From birth, humans are influenced by the surrounding people for their characteristics. Parents take a big role in bringing up children, which affects their lives for a long time.
In early infanthood, babies are looking to moms and dads to learn basic manners to be accepted in society. Some of these manners include not running around in restaurants or hitting other kids. As they grow up, they learn more from parents about social etiquette, which makes them more suitable to live in society. Children tend to look to their parents for role models knowingly or unknowingly.
Besides, parents can also affect children’s study habits. Children of doctors , lawyers, investment bankers, and other professionals see their mothers and fathers work a lot of time, reading books, and punching keyboards, even at home. They are showing their children how to study by their own behavior.
However, parents can also be a bad example for their kids. It is difficult for children who have abusive parents to lead a normal childhood and is possible that they may become similar to their abusive parents when they grow up. In this sense, the parents’ negative role in shaping the children's personality cannot be emphasized more.
In conclusion, parents are the best teachers for their children. They leave big marks on their children’s lives and are therefore more influential teachers than any others they may have in their lives.


  estimated score: 6.0/6.0:
This essay has nice organization and good development. The author has some fairly deep ideas about this topic and conveys them well.
Obviously, the first teachers we have in our lives in most cases are our parents. They teach us to walk, to speak, and to have good manners before we reach "the real world." More than even the professional teachers that we have in school, parents are generally the most involved in the development and education of children.
Almost for sure our parents are the best teachers at the beginning of our lives, which actually corresponds to the parents' role in nature. Parents are most committed and involved in teaching their children; they have a kind of instinct to sacrifice a part of themselves for the betterment of their children. They love us and have great patience while passing down their knowledge to us. They wish us a success and thus will not teach us bad things. And of course, implicit learning occurs when children unconsciously copy some of their parents' habits and styles of behavior.
During the second stage of child development, adolescence, parents can still be in the best position to offer advice even though the children might not accept it. In this case, perhaps the child's friends would be the best teachers. Adolescents are notoriously rebellious in many cultures and may automatically reject any advice from their parents. My first marriage for instance, was solely a matter of doing the opposite when my parents tried to intrude in offering their advice. So in such matters, parents should be much more flexible and be rather the partners with their children. So we can see that being a teacher of growing child become more and more complicated case as the time passes and many parents are simply not able to meet the increased demands.
On the other hand, I would say that parents are not professional teachers and they tend to be very biased by their love of their children. So wishing good things and an easy life may prevent children from maturation. In any case, parents usually can present only one viewpoint of the world, while good teaching should be based on different attitudes. Thus, when children go to school and have a great diversity of teachers, they learn much more than their parents could probably give them. Furthermore, once our parents get older, they become more conservative and cannot always be objective in regard to modern trends and fashions. Thus we need to take their advice with caution during that period. However, some kind of intuition which I believe shared between relatives about what everybody needs and great love which exists in a families still makes our parents very good teachers and advisers at any time.
In conclusion, while parents are not the ideal teachers, and well-rounded children will generally need a great diversity of teachers in their lives in order to have a more accurate view of the world, parents are generally the most committed of all teachers and have the greatest emotional investment in their children and their future.

Some ideas of what to write about for a good score:

  • Parents generally have a greater commitment to their children than their teachers do.
  • Parents might not be impartial (fair) with their children.
  • Parents are not professional teachers.
  • Teachers are professionals.
  • Teachers usually do not have enough time to spend with their students.
Most common errors with this essay topic:

  • Failure to restate the topic is one of the most common errors that   sees in most essays. For example, many essays start like this: "I agree with this point..." We need to say something like this: "I agree that having food that is easy to prepare has improved our lives."
  • Very few people stated that parents are very important because children have so much contact with them in the first years of their lives. Most psychologists agree that these years are fundamental to the emotional and mental growth of the child.




TOEFEL ESSAYS ( Universities should give the same amount of money to their students’ sports activities as they give to their university libraries.)


Universities should give the same amount of money to their students’
sports activities as they give to their university libraries.
 
ESTIMATED SCORE 6.0/6.0
Some people claim that universities should give the same sum of money to their students' sports activities as to their university libraries. They point out that universities should attract more students to exercise, because a healthy body can make a student bear the heavy studies. On the other hand, most people, like me, strongly disagree with it. In the following paragraphs, I will explain some main reasons.

In the first place, an obvious advantage to spend more money on libraries is that enormous libraries can help us save a huge amount of money, paper resource and the time to seek study materials from a far bookstore. As we all known, the prices of books are more expensive than before, while we have to read more books to catch up with the high-tech era. Moreover, now many students are still too poor to go to school, therefore libraries become the cheapest places to provide useful knowledge for them. Just imagine these poor persons can enjoy a varieties of books in a comfortable environment with enough light and a quiet study atmosphere. How happy they are!

Secondly, another reason why I disagree is that the chief goal of university education is to teach students working skills. Obviously, libraries provide more useful information to students than sports activities do. For example, more and more libraries are also equipped with computers which can encourage students to surf the Net to widen their horizons. Without the Internet, there will be less chances to make friend with the foreigners and catch the latest worldwide information. On the contrary, sports activities are just limited in a small area and a few of friends in some degree.

However, I don not deny that sports activities can provide chances to develop some good characteristics, such as cooperation. But frankly speaking, it is a bit wasteful to spend too much money on sports activities, when we can attain enough free exercises, such as running, which gain the same advantages as well. Furthermore, students are easily obsessed by the activities and overlook their studies. For instant, I once used so much study time to play basketball that I failed to go up to the next grade. Although I earned some awards of basketball matches at that time, I feel very regret. In fact, numerous students have the similar stories because of the attraction of the sports activities.

In conclusion, I firmly disagree with the idea that universities should give the same sum of money to their students' sports activities as they give to their university libraries. Nevertheless we are sure that both universities libraries and proper sports activities are valuable. Anyway, to avoid students playing overtime and ignoring their homework should be concerned. Is it wise to spend more money on universities libraries?


I disagree with the statement that universities should offer the same amount of funding for sports activities as they provide for studies. The word 'studies' means a wide range of activities that a student should follow in order to be graduated at a university or a college (in this case). Studies include reading for new knowledge, conducting experiments with invaluable equipments in high-tech labs, finding literature, writing research reports, etc.

In contrast, sports are not a must for students who study another specific subject stream. Therefore, it should not require that much of dedicating work and money because it is actually based on physical training that can be achieved during the spare time of such a student. It is obvious that the sports activities are essential for well-balanced healthier life not only for students, but also for each and every human. However, if we balance the cost and benefit of regular studies and sports, studies always rank first because of its high cost as well as the higher benefits than achieving through sports.

Undoubtedly, studies require large amounts of money to support a student. For an example if we take a student who study biotechnology. She/he should conduct her research in air-conditioned labs with fine equipments. The chemicals used to run a gel, such as polyacrylamide gel are very expensive. She/He will have to use these expensive chemicals many times. Moreover, the uses of energy for high-tech equipments are very high. Let's assume that the university scholarship bear all these expenses. But the point is that if the university gives the same amount to practice basketball for that student, it is a waste of money because the student's major concern is his/her studies than practicing basketball. The important conclusion is that this student does not need to study basketball in depth because she/he is not reading for a sports technology degree. If one student needs to follow such a degree it doesn't matter to fund him/her in big amount for sports. Therefore my opinion is that university should have flexible criteria to provide only the adequate amount of money for a specific program without assigning the same amount for both most and least important programs.

In the world there are many poor students who have excellent abilities in different fields of studies. Universities can absorb those intelligent students if they have good plans of funding that are mainly focused on studies while assigning only an adequate/less amount for sports. Administrative officers should be aware of all these factors when they spend money on students' support.

How is luck related to success?

estimated score: 6.0/6.0:
Essay
I fully agree with the claim that there is no correlation between success and luck. Moreover, I understand success to refer to one’s ability to achieve the predominant part of his goals in his lifetime, which in turn leads to a correlation between success and income since the accomplishment of such a natural goal as to provide a good future for your loved ones demands the means. What is the simplest and most lawful way to earn enough to consider yourself a successful person? To receive a good education and to find a good job. Both receiving an education and making a career presuppose one’s readiness to work hard, and success without hard work is simply not possible for the vast majority of the world's population. The reasons and examples listed below will strengthen my point of view.
First of all, considering an education and a career as key factors of success, one will choose to pursue a degree from a college or a university. One wishing to be admitted to the university will have to take several tests. It is doubtful that someone will be so lucky that knowing nothing, he could pass the test with a high score. A low score means failure, and that test taker will not likely be admitted. Therefore, in order to be successful, one should prepare for the tests and work hard, because a good education will provide him with a good job and an opportunity to accomplish some of his goals and dreams. In my lifetime, I have never met a person who could graduate from a college without working hard.
Secondly, it is impossible to make a career if one is indolent and lacking knowledge, at least in developed countries. Luck plays no role in achieving this success. Even if someone was unbelievably lucky enough to become a manager not being qualified enough, he will be asked to resign in the near future because of his inability due to lack of knowledge and experience to make right decisions. For instance, I used to work for a very small company owned by a friend. This company was later closed because of bankruptcy. The cause of bankruptcy was wrong strategies and decisions made by the owner. After the failure, he went to a university and worked for another company so that he could obtain experience and become a successful businessman. Nowadays, he considers himself a successful person because he had turned into reality his two biggest dreams of producing consumer goods of high quality and making charitable donations to needy people.
In sum, as long as someone understands success as an ability to turn into reality some of his dreams and goals, he will have to work hard because he will need money. And his chances to earn that money will remarkably increase if he could graduate from a college and make a career. All of these things are simply not possible without hard work. Luck has no place in such a scheme of events.
