There have different types of music all over the world, we need music because of various reasons.
The first, I think we need music almost to enjoy.
People listen to variety of music is due to a number of reasons.
It is clear evidence that why we need music.
Traditional music of a country has more weight than the famous international music.
At a glance, we need music to enjoy.
people is happier to listen all kinds of the rhythms and sounds than nothings.
It helps us relax from any sort of strain.
If the international music replaced it, the whole historical experience of a country would die .

Here's my attempt:

1. We have different types of music around the world. We need music for various reasons. (these 2 sentences cannot be included in a single sentence because they are talking about different ideas!?)

2. Firstly, I think we need music for enjoyment.

3. People listen to a variety of music for numerous reasons. ('due to' already contains the idea of a reason, so we do not use 'due to' + reason)

4. There is a clear cut evidence for why we need music.

5. Traditional music of one's country has more weight/value than those famous international music.

6. In brief, we need music for enjoyment.

7. People become happier listening to all kinds of tunes and rhythms than without having any. (More happy might not be incorrect but this sounds colloquial!).

8. It helps in relaxation after being strained.

9. If the international music replaced traditional music, the whole historical experience/the history of a country would die.
(2nd conditional= if + past simple.....+ would +base vb; then must be omitted!).

P.S. Initially I thought this assignment was very easy but I had to use google search engine side by side, and yet, I may not be totally correct!

Sorry, this is how I will structure these sentences, by using some different words or avoiding few words.

FROM SIMON:

First, a summary of the main problems in each sentence:

1. Bad use of comma connecting 2 sentences.
2. Problems with 'the first' and 'almost'.
3. 'People listening' is not a good sentence subject.
4. Problems with 'it is clear cut' and 'need for'.
5. It is strange to say that music has 'more weight'.
6. Strange use of 'at a glance'.
7. Several small mistakes. See correction below.
8. We don't say 'relaxed from strain'. We also need to know WHO is relaxed.
9. Problem with conditionals 'would' and 'will'.

FROM SIMON (continued):

Now here are my corrected sentences. Remember that there are several possible ways to correct each one. Check the changes carefully.

1. There are different types of music around the world, AND we need music for various reasons.

2. The first reason (I think) we need music is for enjoyment.

3. People listen to a variety of music for a number of reasons.

4. There is clear evidence of our need for music. OR: It is clear that we need music.

(This sentence seemed nice to me, though);

2. Fistly/First/Fist of all/Fist and foremost, I think
we need music for (almost sounds weird) enjoyment.

3. People listen to a variety of music due to several reasons.

4. It is clear-cut evidence why we need music.

5. Traditional music of a country outweighs the international music;

6. X, we need music for enjoyment.
X could be:
- First of all (if you meant immediately),
- For a quick recap (if you wanted to conclude),
(At a glance maybe not good usage here, I guess);

7. People are more happier listening all kinds of music than
they don't do so.

8. It helps us to relax from any sort of stress.

9. If the international music replaces it, then the whole
history of a country can be eroded.

Hi everyone!The links above is given by simon in one of the previous comment areas!I think it is useful for us to get some ideas and points^^
All about 'music topic'!

Thanks yap for reminding us of these useful links! :)
Keep up the good work!

hi simon
pls help me
i just cant figure out what are the differences between the following questions
- discuss both views and give your opinion
- to what extent do you agree or disagree ( i want agree partly )

i know you did write 2 essays about the topic:

some people believe that studying at university or college is the best route to a successful career, while others believe that it is better to get a job straight afer school . DISCUSS BOTH VIEWS AND GIVE YOUR OPINION.

Can you post other essay when the question turns out
some people believe that studying at university or college is the best route to a successful career, while others believe that it is better to get a job straight afer school . TO WHAT EXTENT DO YOU AGREE OR DISAGREE

im going to take the ielts exam next weekend so i really really need to understand the differences.

i know the basic difference is that while in argumentative essays you can even get angry, you just mention both views in discursive essays and nobody gets angry. althouth knowing that, i just cant understand in deep. so can your just post your essay in your daily lessons ok? im sure many candidates have the same confusion :(((((

Thanks Manaa ^^
I put it as a bookmark,thats why i still remembered it.Hehe!Thanks simon too!

hi pls i want to go on holidays to Nigeria and i want to do some practises during this period can i open your website in my laptop or my son laptop in my country
