The purpose of an Essay is to demonstrate or develop the ability to construct a coherent argument and employ critical thinking skills.


Is that correct if I directly write my practice essay on Grammarly or I must write on a somewhere else and then I can check it? I'm an intermediate in the English language and have many problems in that. I'll be grateful to help me.

Hello saeed.7,

We have some general advice on writing on our Frequently Asked Questions page.

Grammarly is not a tool which we are familiar with, so I wouldn't like to comment on whether or not it is useful. Generally, I would say that the best way to practise will depend on your own strengths and weaknesses, and that really you need to get advice from a teacher who knows you and can identiy your personal needs.

Thank you for your attention. I will read and use of the articles that you mentioned. I hope to see your advice in future again.

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.

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,
