I have na example of essay that I wrote some days ago

What are the advantages of playing online games?

Many people criticize online games, but sometimes they don’t know the advantages that these games can bring to our social lives or that we can even learn through playing online games.
Firstly, online games can connect us with the whole world, so we can meet a lot of people around it and even know more about different cultures. Secondly, we can learn to speak English by playing online games and history, because many games bring a historical background that they are based on.
Thirdly, some games can help to develop our cognitive side, for example, games that involve strategies, logical thinking and abilities. Moreover, online games offer an attention challenge, because we need to focus so much on what we are doing.
In conclusion, online games have many positive sides, however if we don’t know how to use them moderately as a result we may get addicted. In other words, playing online games is also culture and we can learn lots of things through them when we play safe and with control.

Hi Canonio, I agreed with your opinion completely.
I have had a friend in Belgium, he was also play online game and he learnt English from it. It wasnot bad sides as I have thought. I didnot play online game so far,however from my friend case I think it is not too bad if everyone play safe and with control as you mentioned.

Very nice to see such a good support for people to progress in this sphere
Thanks to all people being involved in this.
Appreciate.

Please how do I really start preparing for the ielts writing test?

Hello Janet Nabuk,

To prepare for the IELTS, the most useful thing you can do is take an IELTS preparation class, but I'd also recommend you check out our IELTS section, the website TakeIELTS (which has free practice materials and loads of other useful information) and our IELTS YouTube channel.

Starting on 2 October, there's also a free online British Council course you can join.

Good luck!

All the best,

Hallo
would you like to tell which one of the sentences bellow is correct?
1. In two days he will fly to Singapore to meet some clients.
2. In two days he is flying to Singapore to meet some clients.
Could you please add the explanation of the sentences? thank you

Hi Sipi85

Further to Peter M's explanation, the main difference between the two statements is that 1) "he will" confirms that the event will occur; however, no specific date or time is mentioned. He may even fly earlier!
Whereas, 2) "is flying" is more appropriate when we know more specific details as to "when something is going to happen" In this case "he is flying" to Singapore on (Specific date)

Regards,
Identify English

Hello SipiJ85,

Both are correct sentences. Which is appropriate depends upon the context and the intention of the speaker. You can see how each of these forms ('will' and the present continuous) is used on our pages dealing with future meaning:

talking about the future

future plans

 

Best wishes,
