TOEFL Essay - television destroys friends

Q. Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Television has destroyed communication among friends. Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.

Television certainly destroys friendships. Put a television between two people and fights happen. Friends of amicable nature cannot build relationships with background noise of any kind. If you are pulled in one direction, you cannot simply tug another direction without significant loss of power. Let's speculate for a few.

Television requires an in-depth sense of surroundings. You must assume what you're seeing is fake. Yet at the same time, your investment in the picture is surrender: you sense enjoyment and give yourself to it. If you aren't asked to surrender, then a medium flailing in front of you is easily parted with. With departures regularly from scheduling, a station would go under. Use this analogy with friends. Friendly programming shares these attributes. For example, if you had a friend who talked at you all the time, imagine the ad space that would take up were your friend an actual television. There would be ad space all the way to the moon if your friend just would shut up.

Friendships require a lasting attention. You cannot flip a friend to another friend if you don't like what they have on. You will be plastered to your seat, working on staying focused like in an exam, attached to what your friend pronounces. This your requirement. Attention to friends cannot be shared with a black box of plasma proportions. The newer televisions are objects of beauty we cannot resist. Weathered friends are beautiful but not objects, and are not designed to pull our visual attention in. There are few things less abysmal than a black and untouched television screen. If you want to see the future of interpersonal relationships in an era of mechanic broadcast expertise, look into the darkness of the flatscreen.

TOEFL Essay - best boss qualities

Q. What are some important qualities of a good supervisor (boss)? Use specific details and examples to explain why these qualities are important.

Most of us find ourselves working for many people during the course of our lives. During each day, we have many bosses. A boss is who you obey at any moment. Some people call their boss God, some people their wife or even their own children. Regardless of the boss target, every good boss shares qualities of being satisfying to work for and generous within reason.

Bosses worth working for are usually satisfying to work for too. In general, I want to work for someone who wants my work. If you're going to have people under you, your face and words must be expressive so that employees recognize their needs, and so that each project hits the target. For example, if you work to complete a project under deadline but the boss face is calm, too much of this doesn't motivate, and the air in the office is lackluster. No one rushes, and rush work only happens under the extreme vise of last minute throwing things together. This is not a good environment.

Bosses generous without reason are soon departed and their money is shortlived. A good boss then, is a person who gives and receives equally from their subordinates but not to the extent that work is negatively affected. I would tell you what this balance is, but I'm not a good boss so I wouldn't be an expert. Expert bosses are those who can walk this line. No employee benefits greater than with a boss whose generosity is focused and reality. Walking through the office garlanding the hallways with money and promotions is one side, while never advancing your office companions and instigating an atmosphere of fear and hatred with numerous betrayals for measly scraps is something else entirely. A boss must skirt this line.

TOEFL Essay - small and big schools

Q. Some students prefer to attend a small university. Others prefer to attend a big university. Discuss the advantages of each. Then indicate which type of university you prefer? Use specific reasons and details to support your answer.

Small universities these days have aggressive recruiting tactics. They pester you in the mail before high school is over. At the end of 11th grade I had a full mailbox. My mailbox was my communication with the outside universe, and yet, despite these interplanetary pledges of scholarships and financial aid, I found myself wanting the charm of big spaces and big faculties. I wanted immense faculty payrolls and the learning only a large university can promise. Both small and big schools provide their students with different exploration, and both offer a full range of disadvantages too, some of which I'll discuss. I will probably only have very small breath at the end with which to voice my preference. I assume dear readers understand.

Small schools have small school problems like money and athletics. Small schools have personalized business that each students gets down to, and the professors care about what they teach. However, tiny groups of academic institutions have little bargaining power because they have no money. They cannot put anything in their mouth and bark and expect the government to listen to their bite. As little recipients of money matters come their way, these small educational repositories intend to promote athletes but without money, cannot pull big names off of the big schools' minds. So now let's talk about big places of learning.

More populous universities receive money and athletes, but you become one in a large number. Each student is assigned a number, and this is your identification. No two are alike, and yet, in a pile of numbers, students find anonymity; they are allowed to flourish behind closed doors, and fulfill their research potential outside the confines of small walls small schools furnish. It's because of this last desire, that others might leave us alone to brandish, that it's the large schools where my preference lies.

TOEFL Essay - which vice do you prize

Q. What is one example of a vice which is ultimately important to us? Use reasons and examples to support your response.

We prize many negative traits: obstinacy and brutal honesty. But none is more widely acclaimed than greed, mainly because greed ensures prosperity and distinguishes us from monkeys.

When we need money, greed helps. If we weren't consumed by small greed, movement would be difficult. I'm greedy so I get a sandwich, because the vice gives a name to my stomach pains. It would decimate humanity if we were all immobile. Standing around, drinking small milk pint cartons. With cow faces and bleeding gums. We would only be waiting for the hammer to take us. We would need utter care. While a burgeoning industry sprang up around us, some nurse would need greed to help lift us from this gumming. And while ambition is our motive, greed our motor.

A car is made of enough greed that it moves. Planes move via greed. Even sporting events like the Olympics are traded for greed cloaked as an award. Those medals are dappled in the rapacity of a lawn dart. Greed matters to us. It moves us. Large pies do indeed exist. We move on them with cupidity at an angle saying “I want.” We only have access to pieces if we're greedy enough. Yes, hunger is a type of greed. And the small waist trumps the big waist this winter. Small waists quickly exit boats, moving ashore to feel hookah. TO have the first drop of greed must push in your favors. Once pushed and in the withholding position – we might call this instinctual response – but when we have insight to ask for certain dishes, this is the greed. The clams look good and you snag them. Animals make no requests, because greed doesn't exist in the stomach, but in our mouths.

TOEFL Essay - Athletic salaries

Many avid sports section readers are not living in caves; they have seen the headlines about various entertainers and athletes who make extremely large-figure salaries. Some presume this is well-spent lucre, supporting these ludicrous payments. These payments must stop, because they stir up fear and inflate prices.

With so many other competing forms of distraction, it's honestly terrible business to pay so much for what another would do for free. Perhaps sports should be comprised of volunteers.

We act as if performers whose bellicose careers were media-made now demand playoffs from the media. The media made you, performer person. Spectacle is, needless to say, not true action, which is why entertainers and athletes should not receive such obscene amounts. When you get paid this obscenity, wondering if there's an end no longer matters. We assure increased cash payouts and the ad dollars return some of that outlay. No one owns the public; the public owns the performers. So why award the flash with millions when his or her replacement awaits. An endless parade ensures bystanders.

We can only shoot at each performer with so much junk. Some junk is blocked by technological advances. Privacy is greater, unfortunately, to aim and fire whatever surplus rumor we can't smile upon. Then, our entertainment refers to a monster. Devouring the rumor mill and the industry insiders, even good nature cannot do. As a performer, you must put out what a majority expect. Every person feels needs to occupy the earth's center. This apex is something of a mechanical bull. Without a firm leash on the functioning of how this mechanical beast bucks, the results go viral and the multitude's eyes pop out viewing fame. If such an entertainer were to lose interest or present themselves with an injury, the end.

[This is a rewrite of the first TOEFL essay I wrote for this project.]

TOEFL Essay - eating in or eating out (edited)

Q. Do you like eat out or eat at home? Compare both options and choose which you prefer.

Eating out and eating at home, both fine options. In fact, often mixable and you're able to fine dine in the comfort of your own dwelling area. I prefer eating at home because of the profit of chewing at your leisure, and the solitude a fine meal provides.

When you're on death row, you're given a last meal. This meal isn't out in the open; guards present this meal in a caged room, to you, fine dining criminal of the West, with any request you wish. When the zoo turns to fiddling and spectacles, you are paraded before double-sided glass. Most criminals know what I know: that you eat better and with a depth that eating in public doesn't provide. Rats and bugs, I reign over how much rodents and insects penetrate public ingredients. Restaurants, those places of communal elbow rubbing, cheap uniforms and snapping guests. I found these additions to my soup at different times. Now, at home, you fill the room with leisurely bites.

A solitude within your home engulfs your activities. I'm alone and the afternoon is to my back; I cannot hold true to the passing of time, and only a weight reminds. Heavy, deaf and quaking, this chance to eat at home. No longer to be seen, but to thrive on one's own. Eating in your home allows you to hunker down and enjoy your own time with food. There's nothing to look forward to paying the bill, and without service, waiters cannot be angry. You are your own chef, waiter and jury. Solitude is a welcome change from most cities, and your thoughts are at peace. You choose this meal with its own solitude, this is not another loneliness. You and the food, welcome to devour piecemeal.

TOEFL Essay - luck has something to do with success

Q. Agree or disagree: Success has nothing to do with luck. Use reasons and examples.

We succeed in the open, in the dark, in the autumn. There are no bounds that hold us if we are in a successful mold. Luck is just another small forte. If you have talent then luck has nothing to do with skill, and since skill has no name in success, luck will suit you with success. In fact, the reverie of missing a bus is only accrued luck when we recollect. If there is no reflection, success will raise your hair.

We view luck as offshoot. Its branches are suitable tendrils and foundling. The myth of children features prominently into the prime time of unattainable classmates. These are no passing whims, and often this luck is seen as inhabiting the most minimal conversing. From it's cold outside, to you should artificially inseminate for the highest chance of when we incur fertility. So when you hold the dice you use luck to explain gravity and friction, but these have much to do with success from a physical vantage. If I select a job and the job stops on me, I cannot blame friction. The rub is what appears as much more an agent of some repercussion.

If we cannot blame frictions, then the earth signals a disguised paddy. This tort is a large slice of why rebellions occur over food. Comestibles are not what you'd consider likely substitute rations for discourse or progress, but realty says what's different. In fact, you can't eat what bleeds, or bleed eats. Food conflicts over the course of our century will hinder international as well as internal relationships. Conflicts over nutrition have little to do with success and more to do with luck of fortuitous geopolitical positioning and resource dispersal. In some cases, the greater population of political scientists ensures the greater a region's luck. Why? This damning creation has roles for each body to inhabit, and some people are just better at finding bacon. Politics recovers ham.

TOEFL Essay - We must stick to the truth

Q. Agree or disagree: we should always tell the truth. Use reasons and examples to support your response.

There are radical truth-tellers among us, and ponderous experts are left wondering if those intrepid adherents to this hallowed credo should walk free, or live to regret it. It's preferable to always stick to the truth, however, in spite of how many threats you get, because it is revolutionary and it defeats secret mentalities.

There is a revolution emergency from truth and telling it. In the ages before light came about, many corners and aspects of life were left to our disadvantage. Many subject areas lack knowledge, and lead to inaccurate explanations of phenomena. Explanations in roundabout tongues are inefficient. If you create gods before an understanding of the universe, those gods also lack universal comprehension. The gods only know as much as you, as you are a go-between.

Life has gotten complicated, so secrets become dangerous trips for which we are practically unprepared. When considered, the truth isn't just one lane, but a superhighway, and runs us over. Finally resolving who says what renews our faith in already stressed infrastructures. The truth should remain grounded, however: it is not about individuals, or one nation, but about setting. The environment where truth is discovered sets a lot of damning free. What we now see is the opposite. At the height of the aughts, our society has been thrown into the midst of a secret mentality. Policy relies on hiding objects that don't need to be hidden because even the obvious substances can be used against us. Such rampant dismissals of truth lead other nations and communities to believe in our puppet ignorance. We are not the masters of some other planet, nor are we owned. A firm resolution to stick to truth would reveal that we're certainly intelligent.

TOEFL Essay - big companies want to build factories in your town

Q. Somebody wants to build a big factory in your town. Do you support or oppose this plan?

If somebody were to come along wanting to construct a large workplace in my hamlet, I would suggest to them that the more the merrier, but also that it depends what their workplace will bring to my township.

Buildings populate my village's surface. Wherever a surfeit of ground exists, an enterprising young person is always present with plans and a clipboard, just anxious to map out the territory and change its geography. I wouldn't build walls between myself and this person. Instead, what can we do in our power to welcome them? I would participate in every step of the planning process, and it would be in this way my voice would be audible. As an actively participating newcomer, whose voice would big business most likely adhere to? The one or the many? A committee of concerned citizens comprised of townspeople often speeds up construction.

What is happening in the workshops and on the tables? What is there contained? Even adults need to satisfy their mouth curiosity under their noses. If we ask a question, an answer put silence back into our faces. Companies that offer tours to fascinated locals provide valuable feedback. A business tailors its operations to suggestions based on the demographics of its flagship. Telling us about what truly will transpire within those walls is not a privacy issue. Good narrative might leave questions, but workplaces must force meaning. Those in the uncertainty business debate this. A factory is no person without privacy, because factories do not possess consciousness, and employ no cover to hide the workings underneath. In a workplace, all is shown so that the quickest solution can be discovered. The more clothing, the longer the fix of any issue that a factory might face. Therefore, as long as we know what rests inside our buildings, a full welcome is respectable.

TOEFL Essay - are parents the best teachers?

Q. Are parents the best teachers? Why or why not?

Parents aren't often certified to do the job of parenting. Teachers are certified to do the job of teaching. However, classrooms are established to teach only during certain hours. Parenting fills in the blanks around the clock. I will discuss the parental argument: Learning best occurs in the most voluntary moments and parental boundary is limitless.

While teachers go to school and learn methods to control and educate, parents learn control through uncontrollable urges of children. This school lasts throughout childhood growth. Mothers and fathers are witnesses to every moment of childhood discovery. This is not an aspect of educational life we reproduce to become a teacher. In a classroom, students learn facts, but at home, children become sons and daughters who learn interaction and feelings. They aren't guarded as they are standing in front of strangers in an inhospitable building that resembles a prison. Going outside at home isn't signified by ringing bells or buzzers, you just quickly inform mom and dad. There is no chain of command that becomes a hurdle.

Parental boundaries are limitless, and what children learn, priceless. When a parent wants to teach a child a lesson, there's no regularly scheduled class time used as a receptacle for so much lesson. We do not rely on a didactic mention that “now is the time we learn how to flush the toilet.” The toilet lesson is simply done and over with, and the space between the lesson and learning is insignificant. The lesson rests in the exchange and the broader understanding in the parent and child eyes. Sharing the same DNA almost allows for non-verbal communication, which is only slightly possible after months of classroom teacher. The bonds between parents and their children aren't likely reproduced, no matter how many certificates the person standing in front of your child has earned.

TOEFL Essay - reading and writing as diminished essentials

Q. Is reading and writing more important than it was in the past? Use reasons and examples to support your response.

Civilization sparked, and humans started off writing on the walls of wherever they lived. This communication is no longer socially accepted. However, the form of expression was basic and conveyed meanings of battles, hunts and daily life. Today, both reading and writing have diminished, and yet their importance grows. Our reliance on technology and our consumer selves necessitate a strengthened hone of reading and writing.

In an era alive with the Internet, commands are pressed by keys. Since we process these commands by tapping, when we go somewhere we need to type. Writing goals are to communicate our whims to our computers. The most economically we express ourselves, faster computers are possible. Communications break down between user and computer when the writing suffers. I cannot express myself to my computer if the words don't come easily. If I place a withering embargo of communication between my computer and I, then work grinds to a halt. Surrounded by computers, the need for writing is no longer ambivalent. Our need is no longer patient and biding. It is an aggressive need, like a printer with its ream.

Writing isn't the only task in demand. Reading is also an essential task. We navigate multiple pages of text each day. Not knowing how to read is knowing madness. All products jump out at us and declare to us that they are our new favorites. Little is known about which is actually a special addition to our lives unless we can read them well. Consumers must be motivated and informed. Proceed to the purchase area. There, an educated consumer body performs well under the rigors of the market. Markets respect people who learn about their complex histories, and reading exempts participants from the mockery and remorse in the area of purchase.

TOEFL Essay - The past teaches us nothing

Q. Some people say we need to focus on the future and ignore the past. Others think the past holds valuable knowledge for our progress. Which opinion do you agree with? Why? Include reasons and examples to support your response.

We don't want to think about the things we did last night. Dwelling on these activities will bring us little joy, no job and even lesser skills for the future. Therefore, I don't believe that the past holds valuable knowledge in most areas, but especially not for our purposes and not for our love.

Some are rumored to have discovered their life's purpose in twenty minutes. This is an advertisement. No one honestly counts to determine whether we have an idea about magnetism that controls us. I face north to determine what other directions are. I spit in the field, the ergonomic dusk brooms together my senses, but each time the river is a different one we step into. There is no exact river of our math, which I ended up failing due to my spacial incomprehension difficulties. Search engine usefulness is based on hard work, not on repeat of like searches until our mouths tire from calling in the copse. Even a soup with the same ingredients is as diverse as a kettle is uniform. No purpose exists in a world where the reaction to alike stimuli will produce different offspring.

Our love is part of our nature, and we cannot figure it out. Cloudy destinies are seen in the ball of crystal, and the future decides early to leave us behind in the station wagon. See you in one hundred years, relic. My love in the past was just as worthwhile as my current love. I have incorrectly gauged at times, but the past teaches me little on how to love. Loving strengthens as our pasts catch up to us, but the object of love transfers from a big stuffed bear to human subjects. Our past love, from object to now subject, is of little importance to the present. If I analyze the objects of my past affection, I would be stuck loving something inanimate.

TOEFL Essay - technological changes sway the world in positive fashion

Q. How has technology changed our way of life? Do you see this change as positive or negative.

Technology is like the bricks that aren't tactile. You can't join them together, you can't throw them, they don't hold heat. But technology has built things for us and certainly builds inside us. It's in these inner changes, or these capacities to instigate change in our weaker urges, where technology saves us.

A saving grace comes from distraction. We no longer pine. Pining, an important movement of the romantic era which was dragged on well into the late 20th century and culminating in grunge, spawned pop music. When we like someone, we need a target if those warm feelings are left untended. We pretend we are inside of the song. The song becomes a glove that squeezes us in some pretty comfortable ways. However, the song never fulfills the desire, which is why we like the glove to squeeze repeatedly. Once the desire is fulfilled, we remove the glove. Pining is thus defined as a prolonged tolerance for thinking upkeep based on our dislike embodied in an unhealthy and harmful person.

Another bricked change in ourselves achieved without mortar has been a removal of bad influences. With distractions, bad influences aren't around for very long. These icons are smashed, and removed, because other icons must stand in their spots. Placed to warrant responses, the icon must be foremost in our mind. The icon is a body double for an insane longing. Made real, our hands would toss the person to the moon our rejoicing would never stop. You could not stand the eternal stare of a real virgin.

Finally, everything is recorded, so the same preaching mouths come around, and they are obligated to be smarter than in the past. These new mouths must convince us they do more than drink; they must think of new ways to pronounce the same boring warnings.

TOEFL Essay - You would change one thing about your country

Q. If you could change one thing about your country, what would it be and why would you change it? Include reasons and examples to support your response.

No one is entirely happy with their mother country. Mine suffers from unfortunate problems. What is shocking is that we no longer have solutions. Questions pile up, yet other countries still mistakenly look to us.

In light of our descent into oblivion – relying not on smarts, but instead on might – we view applying the hammer to objects as the road to resolution. But striking to join together differs from striking to smash a whole. Smarts may come from military or civilian sectors, but they must be smarts, not might. Manufacturing used to be big here, and this symbolized a deeper creed in US life: you can build something that will fix a problem. When we stop building projects, constructive approaches to problems are dismissed. Instead, we flourish hammers and wrecking balls from derricks. If we smash what bothers us, we become demolitions and still no answers.

Questions are piling up, and their piling doesn't diminish with further wrecking. If I destroy a wall here, the issues as to why the wall went up in the first place don't fade. If I build a wall, what I am forced to acknowledge is the reason that the wall was a solution. Walls are veritable solutions, but they prompt us. Walls light the fire under us and get us asking the right questions. The wall cannot provide an answer. Captivity only provides questions. Why am I held in here? Kept out? Only when we build answers instead of walls do we fix.

Follow the leader often results in following the evil leader with wrong problem solving techniques. When the US was increasing, our friends increased. Who doesn't want to sit with or near the problem solver? These friends still look to our example, but now we're the one making water and throwing up all over ourselves. This is not an example to follow. Especially when there are mouths to feed.

TOEFL Essay - I would change things about education

Q. If you could change one aspect of the public school/schools you attended, what would you change, how would you change it, and why? Use reasons and examples to support your response.

Education is a tricky subject. As with figuring out anything, many variables involved in the deep process. Students emerge from schools at the end of the day and it's easy to forget that they belong to a community housed within several fortifications, cafes and playgrounds. I would change a few things about my school's construction and the administrative hierarchy.

Schools are built much like prisons. We are interested in keeping children and their noises, their dramas as well as their affinities, inside and locked away. A brighter school with less restraints would improve matters for children. They would not feel the cold gray sky behind the gratings on the windows, would not lunch in the same linoleum room like those dentists use to calmly wash out patients' mouths, would not sing on a stage so lofty that the smallest squeak cannot be heard. We silence the children, and we assume they behave better this way. However, when children are unleashed they destroy property. This is because they hold their emotions so pent up. Generous little beings are not captivated by the dull school surroundings. Gym balls will bounce with resounding joy if only we update the facilities which school our children.

School administrations refuge in lonely temperance behind desks which expose children early to alienation of processes. How many times will they see desk housing a person? Fresh new faces entice all guests to share the most important information with the desk's occupant, and in the quickest manner. Imagine what fresh faces enliven the office environs, while increasing productivity. To this end, all school admins and educators who are entrenched should be alternated every 5 years. A bargaining period is born of this, during which time admins would prove their worth. However, teachers are accustomed to unstable living situations already. Administrators and office dregs should share in this renewal.

TOEFL Essay - Childhood years are important

Q. Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? A person's childhood years (0-12) are the most important years in a person's life. Use specific reasons and examples to support your response.

Some of us are receptive to new ideas at every waking moment; others resist new ideas but still manage to learn. How? We often learn on our own, autodidacts ingesting information we can get down. Children acquire data and skills, and many consider the ages from birth to twelve as our entire education. I agree because new resources bombard us and we appear to want to be taught more then.

Our youngest years fulfill us in ways we fully appreciate years later. This is human. For example, I now know that traveling with an ex while they are an ex of yours is not a tremendous idea, especially if you shoulder their travel expenses. Very likely, you will not see this money again. I would have only been fooled once, or perhaps not fooled, if I had been burned as a child. I would not again place my hand where flames could lick it. If I had learned these lessons when I was a young child, I would have avoided Europe altogether to not suffer from it. Children are too weak to fight a full-scale bombardment, and in acquiescence let wrongs wash over them.

Adults assume children are taught more during our childhoods. When we start exhibiting teenage faces and attitudes, when we start looking scary as our bodies pull and stretch, it's during this breakaway that adults know that learning time is over. An oil-covered face is the milestone that means that we are no longer a sponge. Adults cannot change attitudes by grabbing onto these oils because they are worthless. You should only talk at worthless oils, and refuse to extract them. Rekindle peaceful interactions when both parties are ready. Hence, when our faces have readiness written all over them, we await input. Adults and the world are just more easy informing us. I'm sure this biologically correlates to our evolutionary paths.

TOEFL Essay - Exercise might work, but so does studying

Q. Some people say that physical exercise should be a required part of every school day. Other people believe that students should spend the whole school day on academic studies. Which opinion on do you agree with?

A balanced mind is usually one that knows a good many fields. The wider our knowledge, the more capable we grow. If you recite diverse lots of facts and figures, others envy you. You are also the regent of your class. I believe that schools should focus on academics, not allowing physical prowess during school hours, for several reasons.

First, schools must reduce school hours but allow for playtime. There are times to party, and times to study. Partying is part of our lives, and those who do it well are known for it. However, there's a time and a place for everything party goods. If we reduce our work hours, we join parties better. But there should be difficulty in our lives. We should implore ourselves for hours at a time. Only then will we devote ourselves to a balanced life, to figuring the proper techniques of how to pull off partying. Then, when the school hours recede, we are better applied to the compartment that each section is reserved for. For example, if you don't know how to play, you better learn; if you don't know how to study, you better practice and get good.

Studies show that students develop across a broad variety of spectrum, gradually easing into variegated positions. These participants do so with ease and are more productive individuals. Down the road we produce a full live with remunerative interests. In other words, our interests give us back things to talk about and thanks. You are thanked by yourself for productivity. If we deny play from our competing namesakes, or our children, then what we're actually doing is denying being productive. Do we want our children to not be productive? How about do we want traditional families to practice nontraditional family envy: studying?

TOEFL Essay - which learning is better

Q. It has been said, "Not all learning takes place in the classroom." Compare and contrast knowledge gained from personal experience with knowledge gained from classroom instruction. In your opinion, which source is more important? Why?

My opinion dictates that sources for better learning are books, because there is less intermediary nature and less room inside classrooms means plenty distractions arise.

Learning happens when we least expect it, and learning we experience from books. Books are unexpected experiencing. You let your guard down and certain facts will overtake you. You are moved by the sheer insistence that bossy facts actually exert. Books' magical world of paper constantly reproduces and engulfs the surface of countless garage sales, leading halfway to Trieste. Go to any garage sale and how high are just one person's books? You don't know all the titles, though. Classroom learning is important, and you can get all you need inside of a classroom learning moment. Instruction within four walls encourages students whose eye on learning is fixed. Discouraging as it may sound, if you're not meant for school, you're just not. Finding a seat outside the four walls of classrooms is difficult though, because so many occupants gather already.

A book is experience. When you have a fiery work of inspiration in your lap and you are interfacing. Only a large moment outside your little sphere of reference will infect the experience that the book shades you with. We don't like to think of our inner umbrella being pierced or flapped askew by words and paper, but this is the learning that sticks to us.

Classrooms' erudite locations where some attend and others defect to rudimentary pretensions about sleep being more important are only effective one moment in time. Hung with a chalkboard, students and poor individual moderator, stiff salaries are a teacher's reward prize. In fact, it is said that a teacher invented litigation, because law was required to hold our tongues, forging from the world a learning experience. However, environments of compulsory learning are not where great strides in scholarship occur. Learners focus on new texts on their own, and all my important reading moments were with an experience in my lap.

TOEFL Essay - What is one landmark from your area and why do you like it? Describe it.

Q: What are some natural landmarks of your present location or hometown? Why are they well-known? Describe what you like about them.

I used to live in Manhattan. Now I live in Brooklyn. Brooklyn is the first thing you see from the water. Water brought colonists. Colonists saw potential in Brooklyn and called it Brooklyn in their language. Languages that contain many consonants are from across the sea where many different cultures lived. Here, lived one culture, the Dutch. Landmarks are from the past, and they serve to remind us of who was here before. Before, when we were less, there were less landmarks too. Also, landmarks are generally well-known instruments of patriotic politicians.

The New York Dock Co. building is my favorite building because it reminds me of a time when shipping played a large role. This building is a large yellow building that enjoys the water as its neighbor. This building is rectangular with many windows. These views were to allow light to penetrate the interior so that everyone inside could enjoy the nice day without artificial lighting. I enjoy this phenomenon, this natural lighting business.

Supposedly, they are going to turn my New York Dock Co. building into condos. Investment bankers and graphic designers both enjoy living in dirty buildings to remind them that their lives aren't tidy. We assume tidiness equals tawdriness. Certainly this could be true, but a super living situation isn't a facet worth broadcasting, unless you can trade on that. An outside of dirty forgives dirty shortcuts we arrive at that point. If we refurbish the inside, the outside looks rustic while from the inside we enjoy all the amenities. You cannot tell I'm enjoying? That's because my building exterior is dirty. Nevertheless, once I invite you in, you will see what my silent bragging is about.

TOEFL Essay - icons monumentalized in my nation

Q. What is your country's most iconic monument?

National parties and building fervor often decide that it is best to target and concentrate feverishness into statues and edifices. These signify a greatness of the past in a way that buildings without statues and people fail to do. Many of these experiments in rock take on an iconic nature. We sit in Lincoln's lap for descend the Eiffel Tower stairs until our legs turn into jelly because these feats mean something more than a photograph. However, the nature of current American thought is far from establishing icons out of concrete. We have icons, but these are more abstract than a statue whose lap you find yourself seated in.

The first abstraction that we worship is this idea of a constitution, a document that rules everyone. Because files cannot rule with an iron fist, a piece of paper establishes a government that is moderate and rational. There are clear cut rules, and these rules may be changed though through difficult maneuverings, to ensure that each household doesn't simply adopt a different constitution. Even though my father said that families aren't democratic, he was still being unconstitutional when he said that.

We are happy to decide what others can do. This is why our laws are iconic. We happy people dismantling others' concrete know and love the documents to the extent that we hide them in glass. We respect glass, since breaking it spells almost mutual harm and in an embarrassing way. He or she with cuts on their hands might escape judgment or prosecution; however, their shredded mitts cannot deny that they attempted to get a discount from a document whose value isn't material. Our icons aren't things we can buy. This is especially important in a land where I cannot be untouchable. The law is untouchable. By law I don't mean police.

TOEFL Essay - How you resolve conflicts is your opinion

Q. Resolving problems between individuals or groups is important. What should be considered or kept in mind in resolving problems between individuals or groups? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

The world was created from conflict. Life is based on conflict. We see a tiger consume a giraffe and that’s conflict. There is no resolution. There is only tomorrow for giraffes. Frequently, even tomorrow is a surprise to their eyes and saved necks. We humans have greater chances of survival because we rely on resolution. Resolution takes numerous shapes, but its goal is similar. Its goal balances what a group over here needs with a group over there. Resolutions need to be considerate and avoid violent priorities, but they must clear heads and ensure satisfaction.
Resolution is the foundation of modern diplomacy, and group dynamics follow national ways of agreeing. We respect each other and certain rules exist to guide us. There are forces beyond our understanding that make another group act toward us in a way we don’t like. We itemize each torrent and in the end, we throw it in their face. We achieve resolution when there is nothing to get thrown in the face in anyone’s hand. Resolution is when I reach across the cubicle and clean the face of someone whom I want to throw out the window. These might be my violent priorities, but I must not indulge them. Prioritizing throwing a coworker from a window still typing in their chair is violence. In other words, any resolution consider not just to appease others but to appease ourselves. How much are we willing to give others that our own anger be appeased? If we can balance this, we then say with a smile that we avoided violent priorities. We must deprioritize violence.
A resolution must also clear heads and ensure satisfaction of parties involved. This is partly covered by what has been already mentioned. However, in addition to appeasement, clearing heads ensures that conflict between the individuals or groups has cooled down. This conflict should stay cold. There should be nothing in the resolution that further stokes the fires of face throwing torrents of madness. Such torrents bring up more back and forth and can bring conflict again from nothing. Resolution must be friendly in a permanent way.

TOEFL Essay - What test path I follow to perform the utmost

Q? Discuss the methods you use to study. Do you study alone or in a group? Do you have certain preparations for studying?

When many students want to expand their knowledge, they get a test. Most people cringe during tests, but this fails to taint their performance. Some scholars prefer to be a bit tense or pressured, others require relaxation and a splendid breakfast. I have certain rituals for crunching. I would say that others students' study habits are far superior but I simply don't know if grades to prove this. Why I sleep for one hour, fifteen minute intervals, why I paint my face and why I slightly alter my diet are explained below.

True preparation means gaining consciousness for the same duration spent test taking. Since my tests are usually 1 hr., 15 minutes, for a week prior I will plan to only sleep for this amount of time. I will then alternate sleeping and waking following this schedule, allowing for a small break on weekends. Thus, my brain will weed out facts not pertinent to the test in question.

Altering my appearance figures heavily into the myth around why I perform magically on tests. About a weak prior to zero hour, I cut my hear in a way that I'm unrecognized. My friends wonder where I go, and they're duped that I've disappeared to study. However, I'm usually spying nearby. I also sometimes paint my face, which ritual signifies my seriousness and renders such seriousness's depth to the world, like a pigeon with a bizarre message.

Diet influences test results. We are fueled by food during tests and great challenges. To this end, I change my diet slightly by adding or subtracting central ingredients a month before to allow changes to afflict me. I find that a vague discomfort whose source I can't pinpoint provides the extra push I need to excel.

TOEFL Essay - You must attend

Q. Some people believe that university students should be required to attend classes. Others believe that attendance should be optional. Which do you agree with?

Many experts have argued against mandatory attendance on the university level, usually citing that students at this age should be sidled with their own sense of drive and responsibility; it is no one's duty to ensure students show up to classes. However, there are benefits to forcing attendance on unwilling and willing students. Simply put, attendance should be mandatory because of the attendant educational nuances and unreproducible anxiety

Education traffics in nuances. Nothing is up in ours faces for long. Education provides issues that first jump up and then meekly continue to annoy us, the students. Without this annoyance, an idea isn't interesting. Ideas and notions must first annoy us to get our interest until we sit up at night further annoyed that we're awake. The nuance is the answer to why we're awake, the plumbing of our actual annoyance. If we miss class regularly then we don't receive questions and information which, at the moment of root, becomes so firmly entrenched in an area of our brains that it is impossible to unplug. Absent students who collect notes from their classmates miss the nuances and contexts of these annoyance gems. We note-takers might glean the actual information but don't benefit from any of the subtlety of countless annoyingly academic moments.

In addition to promoting nuanced annoyance and the late nights whose fruits lead to brilliance, mandatory attendance induces anxiety. In some forms, anxiety leads to counter-productivity; however, in the classroom, anxiety designs atmospheres which mimic the stress levels found at employment. If we aren't subjected to these levels during our formative student years, we will be rather unprepared for their appearance. An ideal university setting mirrors the same reluctance and anticipation felt by many in the job force. Absenting ourselves from this means we lose out on an inimitable experience and that's why we pay for education. The perks and ancillary benefits are such that we can't reproduce them anywhere else before the seriousness of actual employment begins.

TOEFL Essay - You may volunteer to attend

Q. Some people believe that university students should be required to attend classes. Others believe that attendance should be optional. Which do you agree with?

Forces beyond their control or understanding often motivate college students. For this reason, most students, when we ask if they have plans, respond with certain blankness. However, one method students use to assert smaller rights is through missing class. Attendance should be optional because whether you're present has little influence on grading and students will have less opportunity to influence fate.

You can still fail even if you spend the entire semester sitting next to me. I might possibly agree with the grade you've earned regardless of your enduring presence during class hours. When students are present voluntarily it is more obvious they're interested. Vacations fall during times of lull. At this time a compulsory attendance of some rigor could vouch for time off. There is very little investment on the part of disinterested individuals required to sit in classes. They will show no change either checked out or taking part fully engaged. These people, these students, should not be forced but freed. Your attendance indicates your mentality.

A good mentality is within a student who is always present in an optional class and usually rolls with the punches rather than being regarded as really visible. The no-hassle students don't exert influence on daily lessons and activities. Students who manipulate can be relegated at arm's reach. One way to do this is to isolate the students who most likely grub grades. Most students who grub grades grub because they perceive disparities. A guilt spans the great distance between their location and the class being taught. They are too often present to notice that various skill levels exist. Vocabulary attendance would sort and simplify most of these hardships.

TOEFL Essay - Movies show us how people live in other countries

Q. Films tell us a lot about the country where they are made. What have you learned about a country from watching its movies?

Films indeed relay interesting quirks and global issues confronting filming locations. I have learned about customs and significant actors and objects that nominally appear by carefully scrutinizing certain moments in film.

Directors will place significance in front of us for our attention. We're sold with the entire significance. First among these objects are actors. In movies, actors often rest surrounded by products. They blend in among so much product. We notice which actor is popular where and which objects contain regional significance in films that show other nations to us. For example, in filming Chocolat, Mr. Depp evinces a firm desire to eat chocolate eternally with Juliette Binoche, a sweet woman. Perhaps this is because chocolate is an important byproduct of worldly economies that we see chocolate play roles in more local pictures of man and woman together, vying for a legitimate relationship. Nevertheless, who wouldn't want to stoke their sweet teeth with handmade chocolates next to a woman in an anonymous French township? In this way, viewers learn that to French citizens, women, self-produced chocolate and drape shirts are significant. Clearly, Johnny Depp's popularity we cannot question.

We also learn about other countries based on what the camera sees we see. What directors leave out are usually not going to advance the plot much. What the director chooses to include suggests audiences in the national arena will find these objects full of meaning. Directors frame scenes for viewers to thank the director repeatedly. To gain sympathy, the same object must come between directors and audiences. We say this exists because a director has illustrated it. In Italian movies, suits and bicycles are significant so the director includes these.

TOEFL Essay - why we should do things we don't enjoy

Q. People should sometimes do things that they do not enjoy doing.

Many times we’re compensated for tasks we have a gross dislike. Frequently, however, we’re paid little to do what we love most. People aren’t compelled to do unlikeable things, but they should still complete actions that disgruntle them, because these lead to rewarding results and often influence our tendencies.

I love doing things I love. This is a vapid statement. Humans must learn to complete tasks which lead them to uncharted territories, and they must learn to avoid vapid statements about nonexistent places. These lands are where lifelong requirements to fulfill our own talent pools. When don’t we dislike taking out the trash? There isn’t a person alive who enjoys trash day. Most of the trash piled up on the sidewalk is a sign that regardless of our hatred of trash, we dispose of our items with discard qualities. We also can’t possible enjoy ridding ourselves of these items, since we live with memories attached to their existence. The memories go into the trash. Nevertheless, seeing those neatly piled bags and smelling their absence the following morning positively proves that trash is simply a task we must repeat.

Finishing accomplishments that we despise doing influences our tendencies. Humans have simple tendencies, and many scientists study how we, like water, tend to follow our dreams. We also call tendencies tastes. We run serpentine among our tastes, but we trickle into what comforts we have. Nothing is awry with this behavior. Tributaries of our dreams happen only when we cast seeds in locations seldom visited. Hatred usually rests in these regions, which is why we rarely linger. Once we do travel there, however, we find our tastes change; suddenly we enjoy throwing trash onto a large pile; we recoil because, once loved, the stench reveals disappointment and is temporary. Trashing offers us completion, like we’re pitching in building a house where no one will dwell. In a house of trash no one resides. But if someone would choose to live there for a minute, their tendencies would change.

TOEFL Essay Question: Some people only like to do what they do well. Others prefer to try new things and take risks. What do you prefer?

Some participants in the game of life only prefer to do what they do well. Others challenge themselves with switches. I am in this list of challengers. According to me, I prefer to engage in even tasks I'm bad at. This way, I am strengthened and I learn new limits.

Whenever I fail, I succeed because what I've actually gained is strength. Imagine we're wearing coats and we notice a hole: now we know where the hole is. Likewise, I gain strength when I embody projects I might fail at or not be too good doing. It is important to remind ourselves that failure exists, is a real thing, not an object but a viscera, in order to really taste success well. When I tried to learn Russian, for example, my deficiencies in my tongue rolling were an obstacle and I realized I would not roll my tongue. I would never attain my dream of sounding like a foreigner speaking Russian.

I also will learn new limits being challenged for the first time. Talent is a reliance on a crutch. Now perfect the idea of the crutch under a different person's arm. I learn new limits to new areas I cannot ever do. I never want a stone unturned. The bottom of every rock is where these limits rest and live. If I perform knowing I haven't upturned even one stone I resent myself. I'm not strong, and I'm not unlimited. With Russian, I never had ideas before I tried about what each undecipherable letter meant. Since attempting to learn Russian, however, I at least see the limits of the Russian alphabet are similar to my own.

TOEFL Essay - A shared problem is a solved problem

Q. Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? A problem shared is a problem solved.

Obviously sometimes the more the merrier. We humans love to share our problems with others. We often hope that others can discuss our problems out loud so to expose the silliness of their tenors. Other times, we hold these problems within to be sacred and unalienable, as if the very existence of problems makes us adults. For now, I prefer to share. If we're going to share we should solve our problems then we can do it together.

Teams address problems differently than even the best therapist does alone. Problems touch down upon individuals, like a car hoisted onto four cinderblocks clearly shouts for mechanics. We together scrutinize the workings and failures of any issue. Just like having an observer constantly over your shoulder, effectively arranging problems among a group is a type of curatorial process. For example, I have problems my friends might not have had. They have problems I've managed to avoid. Together, we can sort these and spread the problematic nature around.

We love to share our problems. Many incorrectly think that problems make us human and adults indeed. However, this is not the first mistake that lands people with more problems. Landed arenas for problems divide a person from actually experiencing locales unaffected by troublesome issues. An area which is free from worry is a place where we adults freely unburden ourselves, even though we heap past issues on a friend group. Our friends' motions in accepting our problems are what distinguish friend levels; we can designate these by terming each level of worry a different color. The group comprehends that a threat level orange group problem ultimately attracts more serious and permanent attention than most lavender-colored problems.

TOEFL Essay - The past holds more allure

Q. If you could travel back in time or into the future, which would you choose and what exact period of time would you like to experience?

Many scientists have wished to travel to other times and places. Some look forward to the future, others glance backward and see promise. Though I'm not a scientific individual, I often desire to return to previous events and influence them. The past holds interest for me since I love history and what's behind us and thanks to my growing older. Let me explain.

We get a foothold in the past and exploit this footing to influence past events. When anyone attains power, they influence the past, present and future. I would like to bet on games with small amounts of money to confuse outcomes, or create media events that reach a majority readership. For example, when we travel to the past we have a stake in what goes on now. If you move a plate on a table, less people will eat in the future. I would make sure that plates equal guests. My influence would therefore be sporting and culinary.

I love history because that's where emergencies are. We often analyze crises and diplomatic blunders. These are all in the past, in history, where I've read them. History is also an area that grows with us but holding onto, we still keep our health. More history is now behind us than in front of us, especially if you're reading this. As we grow up, our ability to influence what is behind us only improves, since there's no looking forward without first setting ourselves up in a position to see forward. For example, if you have bad eyesight, you cannot see the past. I would travel there, since it's probably somewhat your fault.

TOEFL Essay - machines bring only goodness

Agree or disagree: Machines have made life easier, bringing positive results.

Machines permeate our lives. They are not only exist for us to touch and ponder, but also exist for us to step over, move, interact with and befriend. We can now perform tasks in much more developed manners. Technology helps with everything from crowd suppression to artificial respiration. We are indeed so lucky! However, there is much more than just execution and completion; there is much more to other countries and the poor states of each process than just execution and getting the job done. I will therefore explain why technology has reduced difficult tasks to simple button-pressing and why I disagree that this has not been very positive.

A crowd might lose control. Some people think that this crowd should be reminded who is boss. The boss is very clearly the one who pushes the button. But the boss would exert more control if only he or she knew what happened in every step between the button-pressing and the harm that comes to the crowd. In other words, to reduce a process from difficult to simple, we often confuse simple for easy. The button is easy, but the machinations are hardly simple. A simple task engages us but is one through which we observe the workings. We soon forget the time-consuming process and at this point the action becomes cliché. In brief, “start to finish” is itself a pretty lame substitute for “thorough” or “justifiably merited.” End results and consequences, let alone absence, fail to fulfill us if we don't comprise part of the long chain of agents.

Easy, yet not productive. Easy, yet not fulfilled. Unfulfilled and easy and unproductive, not birthing or creating, but a stand in as machinery. Most certainly all of these small pushes result in our hands emptied of parts we play. It is difficult to have work removed from our hands. As hands, these devices adjust to constant fullness. Do we have to ask what happens when what was once full empties? It's pretty obvious the center cannot hold ;)

TOEFL Essay - address grievances in person

Q. When people complain about a product or poor service, some prefer to complain in writing and others prefer to complain in person. Which method do you prefer? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.


We buy goods and services from merchants. Often, these merchants deliver less-than-satisfying results. Dissatisfying goods and services are expected, since we buy so often. However, there are avenues we might use to deal with disappointment. Some complaints are received via mail, others via a long phone conversation and yet others via face-to-face discussion. I prefer to complain in person if possible, because a corporate face can't ignore human presence and records are kept safe. I'll explain.

When we stand in front of another human being, it becomes very difficult to openly offend their person. Part of this is because we believe in dignity, and understand that were our slight reciprocated, issues would escalate until the gravity became unbearable and one or the other would pull out their fists. Furthermore, people are humorous. Their appearance, their facial outcroppings and grooming discrepancies soften customer service representative's behavior we might need to rely on. We accept this token of unconditional love in the form of conversation as a facial phenomenon and not merely as a result of someone's pen or key strokes. The collapse of diplomacy occurs thanks to similar oversights. If you send an ambassador it's preferable to writing with fancy letterheads that “you're upset.” It's easy to throw away and disregard “you're upset.”

Another reason why I'd prefer to address consumer grievances in person is for prima facie evidence's sake; you keep records of insufficient products in person. If I receive a broken hat which really insults my appearance, fitting this hat in the presence of a rep shows that my grieving is justified. This is just not a kind of grief that writing or telephoning excels at. Writing and telephoning cannot mimic fitted hats in person. Our viewing materials, namely, the retinal area of the eye, need to behold how deficient certain goods and services are. You can see the repulsion in the representative's eye. It will then be impossible for them to deny that “this, dear sir or madam, is a truly terrible hat for you.”

TOEFL - live events are where the excitement is

Q. Do you agree or disagree? "It is more enjoyable to see a performance live (in person) than it is to watch it on television."

Many concerts are free during the summer where I live. Bands are always present in the open parks, on matter how big and small these bands. There are always followings. Usually, I am among the following crowds, since I prefer live concerts and performances to television. There's just more energy and sound in real live work.

When a performance warms up, the gradual increase in energy also transfers to bystanders. In general, parties and live events are more exciting once more arrivals move into the area where we expect a show. It is fascinating to watch styles, looks, fashions and behaviors all mixed into the excitement of sounds and smells. The excitement you can taste, and naturally, it draws more onlookers to the location. For example, when a band practices outside and many are fooled into thinking a real performance is taking place, at times the band gets carried away and decides a concert on the spot is called for. Police sometimes arrest performers who are known to break out and sing outside, backed up by loud noises amplified to levels often too damaging to our hearing. At least some sound is healthy, but most concert sounds are energetic and harm us. Be careful at concerts.

A performance also permeates the audience with so much sound. Most sounds are like walls through which a bird can pass but voice cannot. There is silence, too; this is an opening. But the sound is contrary to popular belief a barrier. Try discussing or relating with a friend your latest conquests during a concert and both will be disappointed. He or she will not live vicariously through your retelling, and you will not be pleased through boasting. Instead, concerts require us to keep our mouths shut and let our bodies talk. This is wonderful, and for those with talkative friends perhaps a great idea for alone time while fulfilling friend requirements; however, concerts aren't for everyone. They are for my bird to fly through a wall.

TOEFL Essay - Christmas as a holiday

Q. What is your favorite holiday? Describe this holiday and tell why it is your favorite.

There are many holidays. These are usually fun, which is unavoidable. They are also periods of time when our escape from school is realized. Of all these outbreaks, my favorite is Christmas and how it stacks up to others for many reasons; however, two of these reasons are food and family.

Food is integral to our organism. It is our fuel which propels us. I like food with nominal cheeses. During Christmas, I get to have these urges met. All foods with multiple cheeses are served, and devoured, by our waiting hand-to-mouth. On this holiday I get to search the table covered with all my favorite foods, and for these I'm thankful. I have to save this issue for another holiday, when I can fully find the thanks in my heart. Nevertheless, Christmas is better than Thanksgiving because the food isn't themed: we sample foods from every season and of multiple baking styles.

Another reason for my fanatical insistence that Christmas is the best of holidays is because of family pressures. When we celebrate, families come around. There is nothing abnormal about this happening. We feel warm and full in their presence. Naturally, bystanders grow curious when yelling and hugging plus great eats are available. This family is the inviolable structure that no one can trespass. Vulnerability is inconceivable when my family visits my house, where we find our usual Christmas celebration impossible to interrupt. For example, when my family all grooms together, the bathrooms are full. However, the atmosphere in this small enclosure is tactful and lacks humility. Our prowess as a group is palpable and jovial. Jokes are flying all around. There is really no stopping us. Christmas is just an intersection of our unstoppable togetherness. If anyone were to witness this behavior, they first would find themselves attracted to this celebratory charisma. Secondly, they would learn the meaning of family that exists outside most others.

For vacations or holidays that accomplishes so much in just one day, Christmas tops the list.

TOEFL Essay - Education is to increase finances

Q. Agree or disagree: The primary reason to get an education is to succeed financially.

We've reduced life to colleges and the paper, usually written in Latin, which bears our degree. This very cold phenomenon taking over our lives is merely the drawn out pursuit of hard cash. Our comfort now depends entirely on how much money we're sitting on. I can do nothing but agree, then, with our paths now inextricably linked to education as a class signifier that outsiders – those lacking desire or cash – are damned.

When we first become aware of education it's too late. We're in the system before we can react to the news of its existence. The giant invading lizard has already squished us. This trap engenders various behavior whose design is indebtedness. The exploitation narrative now earns a PhD. Education is necessary for financial gain in most cases, and converts into the end. On the end of our destination keyboard a lonely hand with long fingernails types; this is our debt, sending us nagging letters. Education has worked to financially capture us so that now, years later, we are still pregnant with nail marks.

For this reason, education unexpectedly motivates us to keep up with an earning majority. This body has moved prices up and up. The equivalent of this is to place our possession outdoors like on a deck or porch on a moving pallet yet not out of the rain. Our possessions retroactively swell, thus being too heavy for us to carry and too costly to sell. Education this swelling's culprit. Since we can't carry this burden and refuse to, who will yoke with us our heavy educational burden?

TOEFL Essay - One dream to realize

Q. If you could realize a dream of yours, which would it be? Why?

English is most necessary. If I could simply realize a dream, I would choose to learn this most necessary language to cater to my formation and realize my full capability as a human.

English can enable us. It gives us the speech to proceed with deals and trades. We steer through the water of murky human talk with an new language, and threefold in this case. English barters, it grows and it becomes our tongue. This is rapid development most seen in small children obligated to learn English one by one. Better developed in their linguistic don, children have excess innocence they express through conjuring and juxtaposing. When we conjure and juxtapose, we text limits of what others might understand. Children are given this freedom because we don't expect sensible information from them, and when we hear it, we know these children have reached the outer limits. Even the illustration of rhyming and this childish language is just another experiment kids do; it's how they couple words.

Aside from development, learning English fully would realize my true and full capability as a human. People are considered hi or low based on the group they adhere to. We choose our good friends, or our inexplicable friends. These choices reside with us and are often sources of ire. We might make mistakes, but fully understanding any language enables less error with more trial. Since connecting and using a network of friends is part of humanity, if I could better network and placate a large friend group more fluently it would be a sign of fully capable nature. Learning English to be more proud of it is my goal and if I could choose one, English would be my realism.

TOEFL Essay - Students shouldn't evaluate

Q. Agree or disagree, schools should ask students to evaluate their teachers.

Each semester we evaluate our professors. Some of the questions lead to rather subjective answers, and evaluations function under the assumption that students have the power to be fair and impartial judges. I disagree that students should be asked to evaluate their professors, but not because they can't be trusted. Rather, there might be reprisals and because evaluations are moot.

Students sometimes fear authority. If we students hear enough that a flawless boss presents good reasons to obey, we might still vary in degree but widely we obey. Obviously, students shouldn't write because they are told to put pen to paper. I don't let things be just because some rock group says so. We should look before jumping off cliffs following others. I only jump in jump rope or if I get a prize. In this way, we see how evaluations work: the university needs assistance and this burden falls on free student labor. We should have the free life to reject such suggested workforce formats. If we are asked and required to evaluate, some students possibly will force answers just to be writing words while others are concentrating. We shouldn't concentrate merely because our peers concentrate.

Another reason I'm firmly against obligatory evaluating is because of this word, moot. If answers subjectivity varies, then my measly interpretations throw away. Insight isn't offered, only trends. In fact, because these professor reviews are averaged together and processed, they are over-processed. Nothing would be better than a sincere conversation with an authority figure about a certain professor that lasts half a day, but filling in bubbles on paper that will eventually scan through a machine lacks personality and precision. Who knows what these bubbles really signify. Since no one can read the implications of our subjectivity, it's better to ignore results and resist ineffectual evaluating systems.

TOEFL - Dancing adds to our culture

Q. Agree or disagree: Dancing plays an important role in a culture

I love to dance. Me and songs go together. I undergo changes, both superficially and internally. I must agree that dancing plays an important part in a culture. Dancing results in transformations, detachments and mobilizations.

Transformative segments routinely exist in each dance. There are segments of new birth, death and beginnings. Shaking your body rotates a notion of rhythm. Factors outside us but that we rely on for control are pleasing. Nevertheless, as I undergo changes, I sometimes dislike what happens. But how we move has a role in our cultural stirrups. In general, we cannot control changes as they occur to us, as these are sub-nuclear. Events outside ourselves are most smaller to reaction, and happen part of a larger culture without that big part of culture catching on. Dancing changes on behalf of larger cultural forces working. Some of these reflexes displease certain schools who assume their dancing style is most appropriate. Therefore, non-compete clauses keep Samba and Rugby schools adhered to their own methods of rhythmic steam release, and get to be dancing types for different occasions. They both deserve their own dance areas to practice. So dancing has a role within the context of our adventures of control.

It is this reliance on control that detaches us and our rhythm which transforms us in superficial and mufti-layered manners. In addition to these properties of dancing's link to our culture factory, when you shake your body it results in mobilizations. When we mobilize we just want is to boogey. Since we all want to be mobilized, we dance for this reason. We are often unaware of how we reach this mobilization. Few patrons to clubs arrive wishing to stand around and gather moss. We all gesture like rolling stones no matter how accomplished our consequent dancing.

Where dancing happens, mobilization is frequent. We should embrace dance acts as cultural integers.

TOEFL Essay - People Aren't Satisfied

Q. People are never satisfied with what they have; they always want more or something different.

Once is never enough, and more is nothing new. This is a saying I once created for an essay that I did well on, and it's true. We are never satisfied with what we have and we always want more or different objects. Nevertheless, this is positive rather than the common belief in the negative. We are human and can imagine more and do. Additionally, our drive to improve is tied to this instinct.

If animals had imaginations, they would seek different owners and another home. We strive for more and expand our collections because these are new methods and experiences. A place, and object, these are our experimentalism. When we attain different surroundings and degrees, our viewpoint changes. For example, the rags to riches story isn't commonplace because we dream of wealth, but because we truly believe wealth as power to change and redeem aspects of our person which we don't like is a viable equation. Obviously we realize upon acquiring our dreams that they are often deceptions, shanties of the real our mind uses as alarms to keep our feet mobile.

However important walking may be, physical prowess does little to sustain our living needs entirely. Possessions too are strides manifested in objects. You can get this, buy that, go here, arrange this and for how much: these are accomplishments. We buy or achieve, we are saying – even to no one but ourselves – these goods and services represent an achievement in fiscal engineering. Our drive and status within times passage is exemplified during the purchasing moment, when “I can get” becomes more important than “I can be free.” Our iotas of freedom are tied to buying power. In essence, our drive for more exists separately from buying power. Nevertheless, the item in our hands is the end of the road.

TOEFL Essay - a single world culture born from technology

Q. Technology is creating a single world culture. Do you agree or disagree with this statement?

Technology is around us. Whenever we see objects, a majority of them have technological uses and applications. These technological surroundings threaten or bless us with a culture that is single and worldly. I agree that it is a single world culture for several reasons, among these are the idea of Internet as a netting device to catch us all; and communication, which inhabits even our silence.

The Internet is technological; it has its roots in items we should take credit for. As a technology, the Internet has done more to unify and homogenize culture inside our own computers. Just think of the diverse networks that now require conventions to speak to each other, or the farm boy from Turkmenistan who uses the Internet to question a Western European. Like alcoholism. These individuals get similar responses and are now aware that we have long had similar questions. So the Internet certainly increases awareness of a single world culture whose potential was always animated, though not always alive. We are now all such a catch.

Another avenue of technological sameness is the communication highway. When we communicate we relay messages similar to how connected computers work. We bestow and receive functions and become functionaries. To this end, when we carry out our duties we are active. In the case of a speaker, we are speaking; or, for example a person using a chatroom is chattery. Consequently, constant activity draws a similar pattern over many diverse cultures' skies. We all see the same plane, and the emergency sign no longer calls for lettering.

TOEFL - Children and household tasks go together

Q. Agree or disagree: Children should help out with tasks around the house at a very young age.

I began helping my mother with chores when I was very young. Thanks to this experience, I learned how to keep neat and the value of work in a productive life. Consequently, I fully believe that children should help adults with tasks at home from a very young age. I would say that children and chores go hand in hand.

One reason why children should help around the house is to learn to keep neat. In general, children love to make messes and they enjoy ruining a neat, clean room. However, when these children learn to clean and recognize that their clean faces will be shoved in the heaping mess they've created unless they clean it, they become greater responsible. For example, my brother was always messy until we put him to work, cleaning his room on Saturdays. The cleaner he kept his room, of course, the less he had to clean, and thus the less time he spent away from his friends. They were playing outside. In my brother's case, household chores eventually saved him time. Regardless, keeping neat and clean isn't the only reason children doing household chores is a positive thing.

Time is highly valued in our life. Work, too. Chores at a young age detonate the notion of just how integral these things are within us. Furthermore, they reveal to children possible moneymaking and career paths. It's important kids know where they stand in relation to their career trajectory. For example, my brother used to iron shirts at home, later he graduated to ironing at a laundromat. He soon plans to venture forth to open his own t-shirt ironing business someday. If he hadn't been put to work at a young age, he wouldn't be poised to earn as a young businessperson. It was exposing him early to ironing and pressing that opened his world.

TOEFL Essay - large shopping malls in my community

Q. If a large shopping mall were to be proposed for you community, would you support or oppose this plan?

I have lived in the suburbs all my life. Most of my time has been spent among independently-owned yet somewhat identical homes. There, families look to escape the noise of industry and urbanity. It is to safeguard this serenity and to retain community that if a mall or large shopping complex were to be proposed for my neighborhood, I would most certainly oppose this plan.

Letting a mall into your area shatters the calm. Serenity – we all seek this tranquil form. Some seek domestic tranquility, others preserve their community's peacefulness by fighting for it. In any case, I would obviously oppose such an invasion of the peacefulness of my community. Since a large shopping mall would mean an increase in traffic, pedestrians, noise and would require necessary security. I would fight against its construction.

Large shopping malls interrupt sense of community, almost always shuttering small, local businesses. Clearly, were a mall to be built in my community, the businesses on main street which are the lifeblood of our community would be immediate victims. Even though having greater choices and access to an increased supply of products is desirable, the tradeoffs, or downsides, are too real and severe. While shopping centers do employ many from the population, the business owners, and thus the entire community we live in, would be harmed by such a development. For both these reasons concerning peace and community, I would oppose a shopping mall.

TOEFL Essay - Crime is a Problem

Q. Crime is a problem in many large urban centers. If you could change this, what would you do to cut down on crime?

Any inhabitant of large urban locations knows the hint of poverty and crime walk in unison. If I had the productivity and position to affect crime, I would eliminate or reduce the high incidence of poverty because it is conducive to high crime.

Threatening to hit someone succeeds more readily if this target person stands next to you. This is what the distance desire that security dictates. However, the motive for hitting this target individual is none other than poverty, and when you're poor, your hands grow. Poverty causes crimes that we fear. Granted, identity theft and extortion are greatly feared, but these are nonviolent. After poverty is eliminated, our administration will address non-hitting crime, or crime without physical dampening. For example, in areas where we have equal parts, less criminal violence occurs between people.

In addition to reducing poverty as a means to cut crime, I would also establish lasting role models for everyone to admire. As humans, we need admiration and we need others to admire role models, primarily so the hitting stops. When these admirables dictate proper roles and behavior without poverty, crime will markedly decrease. In every place, where admiration is, so are behaviors which promote safety and actions other than hitting. One example would be petting. For example, if we pay attention to models, and these models demonstrate that payoff is only received after a hit, our final action will be to ensure repeat payoff.

TOEFL Essay - a job is a job for life

Q. Agree or disagree: a job should mean a job for life.

We educate each other according to our lifespan helping determine our longitude. Each should be able to handles as much as creatively complex in an environment that indicates equal demand and rigor. In large cities, this means only handling social networks we capable persons manipulate and destruct. In a work environment, however, a job is a point of view you don't lose; it is for life because of workplace stability and salary potency.

Workplace and force stabilizers are those who retreat into job permanence. These are why jobs come to us. Workers remain stable, and stably occupying frontiers we admonish is how capital becomes known. This firmness supports national growth. In other words, it isn't possible to have many capabilities and decisions to change careers as well. When mobilizers increase, instability becomes sanctioned. To be part of a society that manufactures items in our dreams. The dark ionic power of this tower of manufacture is, of course, the permanence of jobs, but so it is. Mobility isn't feasible. Stay in your job and prosper doing this job forever. Certainly this is a permanent idea and consequently an action that we repeat.

Another reason why perpetuity belongs to our jobs is what demands upon salary we make. Salary itself is a word that implies staying power. For example, grabbing seniority in a location results in a large salary being placed on the doer. Those who stay at one position are more likely to reap benefits and pertain to beneficiaries. When on this planet you benefit, we earn a house which we enjoy or at least do not hate inside of, and which surroundings belong to our desire to learn from our kin. For example, passing along a work trajectory to young ones becomes loving when this is a hand-me-down. A watchmaker is an example of someone unable to learn without job permanence, since learning to customize a fit isn't something that you temporarily pick up one day.

TOEFL - Business should do whatever make money

Q. Do you agree that business should do whatever it takes to make a profit?

Time is almost always spent unwisely. Contrarily, businesses spend time more wisely. Our business intentions are to fulfill themselves of intent, however, no one is hurting in the process. Since no one is harmed in the buying process, businesses should do what they can to forge a profit because they provide products at low costs and recipients actually benefit.

When enterprises are begun, having efficient products result is our primary worry. Will they result? In other words, when we start a business, our only care or concern should be focused on what symbol will yield asset creation. Without creating assets a business goes into the red. This is disastrous but good., since extremes are the criteria of businesses creating money. With disasters, capital notices. It responds with business. Business creates more capital and also more disaster. Most businesses don't admit this, but they should. They should admit wanting to make more business. For example, if a product doesn't surpass others in its class, it cannot flourish. Consequently, the seller cannot flourish and the product disappears from shelves. These productions then require a great push, innovation, and creative teams. If not, no profit is made. If businesses cannot do what they have in mind, they will fail.

When enterprises fail, it is because people's benefit has not been profiteered; therefore, another aspect that supports my view of business profiteering is people's benefit. Just how much the average we benefit from business is unknown, but we benefit. Without business, we would lack the ability to do most of what modern life demands. We wouldn't be able to work as hard, and spend some more. For example, our lives are full and we are no longer bored all thanks to our own business. An entity as great as this should be allowed freedom to move into downright meltdown.

TOEFL Essay - We don't possibly learn from hardship

Q. Agree or disagree: Most experiences in our lives that seem difficult are valuable lessons for the future.

We people have long valued work as edifying and distinguishing. It's probably work's difficulty, the very hardship, that forms part of this attraction; Easiness isn't attractive. Difficulty produces a result which is found to be productive due its high quality and the amount of time we pour into it. Regardless of our view of work and difficulty, it's not something I agree with that most experiences in our lives that seem difficult are always valuable lessons for the future. I disagree mainly because to learn we need to be attentive and some obstacles really might have been easy and unattractive.

Listening is important. Follow instructions is important. Most important, however, is to follow the instructions of your heart. Our heart handles phenomenal information. Most of what we suffer that is difficult passes through the heart. Therefore, if we listen to this organ, we may learn. Most don't listen and don't get learning from hardship. For example, you mean to tell me that I carried this bike in 96 degree heat 60 blocks and up several flights of stairs only to arrive to listen to a buyer's complaint that the paint, which he fully intended to strip off, was slightly chipped and rougher looking than he had seen in the online pics because he had previously not viewed them on any screen larger than his smartphone and as a result this is somehow my fault and he therefore deserves to pay less? You can bet I've learned from this.

Don't imply that anyone would learn, however. We don't often learn from easy things. Much of what we consider difficult at the time is quite easy, and then afterward we realize how easy it was. On the other hand, we don't always learn from the objectively difficult, either. While there are possibilities to learn, I don't always agree that difficulty breeds learning.

TOEFL Essay - Microwaves and fast food might not benefit us

Q. Nowadays, with the invention of the microwave and with the popularity of fast food restaurants, food has become easier to prepare than ever. Do you think microwave ovens and fast food restaurants are beneficial to society?

Today, we use microwaves often for long periods of time. I'm pretty sure that microwaves and fast food restaurants are harmful to society because with them we are bombarded by unknowable knowledge; they introduce mysteries we practically cannot solve into the equation.

Using a microwave or visiting a fast food restaurant, we take in bits of information without realizing their origin, fabric, or how they affect us. In general, new environments tempt our unconscious decision-maker by seducing with numerous particles which all seem attractive. To put it simply, we are strangers in a new setting, but only part remains human. Nevertheless, we are vulnerable to stimuli. The intake establishes a close relationship with the natural world, a world available in minute amounts inside fast food restaurants and especially, microwaves.

Microwaves are much more frightening than fast food. Since our animal brains cannot adjust to radical changes this non-natural world of plastic and combo advertising plus smells insert into the air to entice us, reasoning and we are thrown into panic mode. For example, in a fast food restaurant, the person ordering remains unaware of their close intimate ties to what is about to enter their mouth. And yet, they will consume this exception with little thought; this meal results in disturbances for hours afterward. On the other hand, microwaves really confuse what we want with what we eat. Therefore, unknowable knowledge or stimuli are what make microwaves and other easy cooking technology not so beneficial.

Normally, we adjust to being stimulated and experienced. However, the resultant particles are too young to study fully because of their mysterious nature. These eating practices stuff us not just with empty medicine, but with a questions we are impossibly helpless to answer.

TOEFL Essay - Sports and Academics Funded Equally

Q. Agree or disagree: Universities should give the same amount of funding to sports as to academics.

My school spent millions on its “military athletic complex.” This term is no exaggeration: the FBI recruits at my school heavily. So true. Being educated among these, I must agree that schools should give equally to academics and athletics because both exercise different body parts and there's enough funding in any case.

Sports are obviously exercise. However, many falsely believe that academics do not cost us. This is only partly true when we study or engage in logic, proving and everything left is exercising as a totality that no sport addresses. In other words, working out might get regions reading doesn't, but the reading effort we put in boasts long term learning effects. For example, teach a man to fish and soon all the fish will disappear became too many do this. Give a man a fish, however, and you can earn money from his fish craving tomorrow.

Yet a final reason I might add that funding should be even is basically because there's just enough. Schools' funds' managers are hardy and resourceful. They know the gimmicks to get the money flowing. They show an enduring understanding of how to channel both money and devotion to sports and academics into broad-based investment opportunities. Nevertheless, these two fields – sports and academics – aren't competitors but complements that merged thousands of years ago to create an institution whose one with is that they now separate. Proper minds full of achieving ideas are composed of sports and academics. If you rebuke one, you are refusing to do business with an entirety. There surely is a gymnast in us all; therefore, we should create equal funding for teams and libraries.

TOEFL Essay - Adopt your new country's culture

Q. When people move to another country, some of them prefer to adopt the customs of the new country. Others prefer to keep their old customs. Which do you prefer?

Everyone should travel at least once, so they say. When we live abroad, the difficulty is sometimes knowing whether to adopt another culture’s customs or not. In my time abroad, I have always preferred to adopt the home country’s customs to keeping my own in order to blend and increase my benefit from my new home.

Adopting another country’s customs is a method of blending. When we blend, we become another background. Going unnoticed in the background matters in countries and cultures with strong homogeneity. In other words, how we navigate another country directly responds to the group’s demand that we fit in. Rogue acting in situations which call for control and not indicating your correct emotional responsibility during sports are not smiled upon in foreign settings. For instance, imagine happiness during the tragic example of Holy Week in southern Spain, where everyone is incapable of joy. Adopting another’s customs is the appropriate response to everyday situations and avoid awkwardness.

One last reason I adopt the other culture is to squeeze benefit from this new place. Since I usually do not know how long I’m staying in a current location, I seek its complete benefits. More generally, in any situation we’re led to believe that expertise is unnecessary. This is false. Tourism, as an ignorant onlooker incapable of suffering or emotional response, is dead. What we need now to benefit translates from know-how and expectations. For example, while in Central America proper nutrition would have been impossible had I let long lines or language dissuade me. I kept my head and the line eventually moved. I was able to reach the cashier. Even paying improved after awhile. I could use the optional credit card with confidence. Adopting cultures plainly increases beneficent returns.

TOEFL Essay - my country requires development

Q. In your country, is there a need to leave land in its natural condition or develop it for housing and industry?

In my country, our national landscape shifts and usually overcomes development and industry. I would urge that this land be developed because our spending great amounts of time underwater is not conducive and our social structure is hindered.

Our lives are entirely wet. The rain arrives and renews cycles, sure, but this nature show is tyranny. We accomplish little when precipitation only hypothetically abates. In general, we are hardly thinkers underwater, or worse, surrounded by water but unable to deal with it in a proper response. For example, our agricultural industry booms, but will eventually succumb to overwatering. Concrete development would greatly help to deflect this issue.

Another reason concrete should be laid, buildings planned and brought to towering monstrance, cities filled and peopled is to reduce silence and redo our social structure. Generally, the average laborer spends days alone without others’ speech, and these are missed learning extravagance. Currently, owning a lack of public spaces, we converse in most regions very little, and quality is the extreme sufferer. It’s difficult to engage in talk before too long becoming your own island. For example, inundation renders full marital vows impossible without boat access. Needless to say, this isn’t a windfall of public openness, and the watery slit in heaven isn’t conducive to wedding popularity.

TOEFL Essay - our country's pressing issue

Q. What is the most pressing issue facing your country today?

We are surrounded by problems, some of which we control. In our country, the most pressing recent danger is identity theft due to the ensuing chaotic spending and the dangerous reaction taking place.

When our identity is stolen a violation occurs, a criminal in the world gains riches. Similar to burglary, though different from burglary. In this case the house is electronic and volatile, which we cannot touch to defend. Nevertheless, the danger lies in the spread of chaotic spending which costs your private life and residence documents. As those who consume expand, prices inflate; an entire marketplace whose function is to sell items to disguised buyers has emerged. These buyers who lack sincerity do not intend to use these items, so each item's use-value declines. Items are signals: Enter my online store for deals, is what boosted stereo actually represents. Instead, these goods furnish those who plan never to buy them with surroundings. Furthermore, discounts stamp legitimacy on a bilious mind. Conversely, money too easy is money not in our dominion, and using this easy money for a bargain is greater discount and a way to structure our domain afforded to those whose money this isn't.

Another indicator that ID theft problematizes our today is how we solve stolen identities. Most cases require extra fees paid exclusively by depositors. The assumption is that if the money is ours, we are responsible for the $4.99 encryption fee. Since the security failure is actually the bank's, consumers should rebuke fees as the cost of doing business, instead investigating viable alternatives, such as multiplicity. This responds to anonymity as a cloak. Contrary to a mattress holding our funds, since others know where we keep our mattress, and since a bank is no longer safe, we need a new name for such secure locations we fill with money. For example, we should become the previously stated anonymous personage. We should not assert our complex identifiers, lists of numbers, repeated dates of significance to us, passwords with alphanumeric combinations. As individuals in a population grow steadfast, windows to bilk them do too. Forming a direct link between vanity and theft is only facilitated by unique identification.

TOEFL Essay - We should be judged by our dress

Q. Agree or disagree: We should be judged by external appearances (dress).

I agree that we should judge and be judged based on external appearances. My reasons are complicated, but briefly: we intend and act easily and predictably by our dress.

Our intentions adhere to how we appear. If I appear to waver or doubt, my doubtfulness is implied and I'm thereafter doubted. This certainly isn't factual, but I nonetheless expect to be judged as hesitant. I prefer to be treated this way, since our faces are realistic masks without keys that we use to signal. Regardless of how we feel deep down in our entirety, if our face dictates otherwise, from the depths of our hearts may not count. For example, politicians care to express the right facial and body language. One wrong snore/sneer and the election celebration is over. Honestly, how we possibly measure behavior without the look it belongs to is beyond me.

Our actions, what we do after intention's apparition, are also determined by how we appear to others. We impress or depress them. We will and should be judged by how we look because looks indicate stance, position, bearing, and action. We see where we're going by our clothing and whether we're appropriate. In general, we dress a certain way or create a certain look when we take part in distinct activities. If we appear to be playing ball, chances are we are. We would not want police officers to assume criminality when we're clearly playing at a team sport. Arms flailed during a drowning doesn't receive bad judgment, it's rather expected. A calm bather in passive release sinking to the bottom would, in our judgment, be assigned a set of behavioral epithets. These are just some examples of how dress and appearances indicate action, largely tolerated through uniform. We should therefore judge actions based on personal appearances.

TOEFL Essay - Pets being treated as family members is good

I read about one woman burying her cat with a full funeral, while another wed her dog. These two deeply loved their pets. For a love this deep, more than mere petting usually suffices. I insist that while people treat their animals like more than friends, how pets affect self-esteem and their consistent behavior result in positives.

Pets really foster high self-esteem. Generally speaking, glimpsing a smiling dog behaving well moves our hearts and rekindles our ancient belief in connections. Pets signify the caring of someone else who exists and cares for our person who exists and cares, too. This is who we are. When we recipients congratulate ourselves, often in pet company, our capacity to be a dependable entity awakens. An illustration is that many pets help with depression and worthless feelings because duties occupy our maneuvers. In a way, pets regard us as heroes and as our own self-esteem thermometer.

Another section of pet difference is their actions: pets don't choose to act, and therefore act consistently. In other words, a cat will continue to be a cat. In many nations, people are so stressed they forget vacation and we're unsure how they might react. Our moods strain and split. How a person reacts is very unlike a cat or larger animal would. Pets, however, will act consistently cued by their interests. We shouldn't perturb our thoughts with why, but can rather count on pet solidarity in behavior. For example, nationally American dogs are the same as Chinese dogs only with different words for paw.
