My difficult essay

   This is harder one for me than other two essays I have handled earlier. I think the reason is that it was marked by two subjects, which means I should be careful about the content that I talk about and the language that I use. These two aspects are not easy.

   Firstly, I want to talk about the content which made me exhausted. I can understand that it is necessary to give examples explaining important points, but I didn¡¯t know that I should show the evidence of the example and the explanation. This resulted in my limited time in which I must finish finding the evidence and writing, because I just did drifting reading. Therefore, I know how to write an analytical essay after I have written this one. If I could go back to write this essay, I think I would read lots of aspects related to the topic and get more useful information.

   Secondly, I want to talk about the language. The aim about language of this essay is written in academic language. Although I have learned how to write academic essay in China and in advanced language class, it can not be used skillfully for me. I am quite satisfied with my knowledge that I have learned from the advanced language class, but I need time to digest it and use it skillfully. After writing this essay, I learned that I should take more exercises about writing academic essay. Next time, I will prepare more time to check my academic language.

   In conclusion, this essay gives a bad feeling to me. At least, I am not satisfied with the process of writing this essay. From this experience, I have learned that I need read more chapters related to the essay topic, get more useful information, take more exercises about academic writing and check the language of my essay after I have finished my writing.
