all because an essay is too difficult

Depends on the topic. Some topics are hards to find and connect the ideas.

for me relayes the ideas and you have to read a lot of things about it which i mean being educated

Electricity or trees, which is eco-friendly??

what does the trees word mean? sorry i don't get it

Hi opik,

The speaker means that he prefers students to email him the assignment, not to give him a paper copy. He wants to protect the environment by using less paper (which is made from trees).

Best wishes,

oohhh i see, wow thank you so much sir

What I find difficult writing essays is to connect different ideas and thoughts about a topic

In my opinion, writing essay is not easy for me and also for everybody. If people want to write correct and attractive, people will practise to write it many times. On the other hand, you have been received the feedback from higher level as like teacher. Moreover, people should read a number of books that the best ways they recognize wrong or right sentences.

I find difficult about writing essays is how to summarise your broad Idea in few words. This takes a lot of time. If you have given a period of time to write a essay then difficulty is so high.
We have a lots of ideas. So this is for me a difficult task. If you want to master in writing essays then you have to practice writing essays and reading essays. Practice is a thing that you can master in anything.
