Essay on young people and science
It is often claimed that education is the single most important factor in the development of a country. Nonetheless, official statistics show that the number of students pursuing a degree program related to a science field has dramatically declined. Not only does it seem to be decreasing scientific research, but also the country’s financial development.

“Write an article describing a river and its effects on the
people who live near it.” Use approximately 200 words.
- Title with a catchy phrase
- General introduction about the topic: river ( the river Ganges )
- The scale of Ganges and where it is located
- Its importance in history
- Its importance in culture
- Today's relevance in the economy and commerce in general
- Final conclusion and wrap up
Feedback from CPEsamplewritings is in color red.
“The River” (title is not catchy at all!)
Flowing through India and Bangladesh, the Ganges river is
today one of the most important natural flows of water in the
world(,) not only due to the fact that it is the third largest river
in the world (repetition) by discharge but also because of its
cultural and historical relevance that are far larger than its
2700km of length. Good intro but too long, 4 lines would be
enough. Punctuation needs to be checked, as there are no
stops or commas.

We are becoming increasingly dependent on computers. They are used in businesses, hospitals, crime detection and even to fly planes. What things will they be used for in future? Is this dependence on computers a good thing or should we be more suspicious of their benefits? Write an essay of about 180 words.
Computers, friends or foes?
As everybody knows, the computer is one of the best inventions of the 21st century. We use it for almost everything and we cannot imagine our modern world without it. However, in my opinion, we should consider all the risks related to this technology, in order to do a responsible use of it.
