Dear Sir, your task 2 ideas booklet need to keep abreast of latest questions such as those relating to social media.Thanks a lot.

Dear Simon,

my question is a bit off topic, I hope you won't mind. I followed your instructions on writing, and used the technique that suggests to spend 10 min on planning, 5 min on introduction, 10 on each paragraph, 5 on conclusion. It is actually a great advise as 10 min spent on planning are very useful and I would never think of it myself. However, I lack the time to go through my essay one more time, to "check" for obvious mistakes. Don't you think it is necessary?

FROM SIMON:

nonus,

The topics in the ebook are still the most common (family, education, work, environment etc.).

I use the blog lessons here to address new and less common topics.

...

Valentina,

Try to get your conclusion done in less than 5 minutes (it's only one sentence). This should give you the checking time that you need.

I hope this helps!
