Hi somia, i have taken the test in Turkey.

Online learning has being becoming a notable part of human civilization.Technological innovations are seems to be unchanged in educational field.Although there are some arguments among people regarding electronic based learning it is the high time to accept advantages of web based learning.

Firstly , it has been closely scrutinized distance learning has emerged irreversible outcomes to the society.The gap between students and teachers tend to grow as computer based learning is popular these days.Most of parents in western world are now planning to home schooling for their children with the growing tendency of e-learning.Lack of social interaction,family friendly learning environment is more likely to be lessen the competence of children which leads to higher education.According to a ethical cord the pupil is shaped up by schools.leaving children in online machine learning work stations remain another problem to choose their freedom.Traditional teachers seems to be disappear from the society and more redundancies might be available for this matter.A good illustration of this , there should be more qualifications for teachers including acceptable degree and sound knowledge of information technology.


On the other hand electronically supported learning is one of most convenient way of learning.Most probably online degree completion is much more fantastic with reasonable fees. Most universities and higher educational institutions are putting their all academic content online.Anybody can gain more educational qualifications while working daily basis.Online tutors are more supportive and highly qualified.There are e mail contact with tutors discussion forums between students and social networking like skype which can meet students all over the world.A plethora of academic materials ,high standards educational videos podcasts are available online which can be downloaded free of charge.Online universities are never closed. Anybody can learn at home day and night.

The subject is about the influence of alcohol in individuals who drink alcohol and drive . The rates of car accidents are increased remarkably in Lebanon in the MEA because there are no strict traffic rules to stopping people driving under the influence of alcohol. tremendous car accident took place in a mountain area north Lebanon in 2009 claimed lives of ten people on new year eve 2009 while travelling to attend an event . Most causalities were children and their mothers. People blamed the directorate of travel agency because one of drivers was under the influence of alcohol , and, was responsible for this catastrophe. Although I was disappointed about what was happened to people, I was interested in how the authorities in Lebanon are enthusiastic about to stop such kind of accidents to happen . new strict rules against the people who dink and drive were considered and the rates of accidents declined significantly on the following years.

Hi Pinar,

Yes, it's possible, but it depends on how much work you do. It would be a good idea to go to some lessons or find a private teacher if you want to improve quickly.

...

No problem Shahla.

...

Hi Moka,

That topic would be fine.

...

No problem Martin.

Yes, it was hard to accept, but the best team definitely won!

Thanks for sharing your ideas Deepika and Sulaiman.

CHILDHOOD OBESITY

Childhood obesity has been increased in recent years with alarming rapidity creating huge public awareness.Most industrialized nations are facing this problem as epidemic before the changes in health and diet of children and young generation with the sophisticated life style.


It is claim that there are various factors affecting increased rates of childhood obesity and overweight while they can be listed under social ,economical and cultural aspects.Parents are the first defence line of children closely followed by the teachers.A sound counteraction can be made by the parents and teachers who are very close to children in family environment and school.Busy lifestyles of parents make this issue worse.Nevertheless relentless ad creep that promote junk food has accentuated speed of getting obesity.Large volumes of advertisements display by internet and television entice children for fast food that leading to weight gain.Lack of exercises,sedentary life style,staying at internet work stations,play video games are the another contributing factors for this trend.

The emergence of new strain of E. Coli as a breaking news shocked Europeans and health professionals recently. This information given to public after 11 dead case were found in Germany because of eating contaminated vegetables. Spanish cucumbers and tomatoes were initially accused for spreading of this disease. The outbreak of new type of E.coli not only led to killing of hundreds of Europeans, but also destroyed Spanish economy and those who were benefiting from this trade all over the world.

What was interesting about this story is the false, or let us say the prior to time judgement accusing of Spain’s vegetables which later did not confirm by investigations. This urged the German’s authorities to announce official apology. But is saying sorry can be a proper response? This has remained a question and I think from humanitarian and trade view points, Germany should compensate their action by paying to the farmers and traders the amount they lost.

This news can also be a warning for the health professional to be prepared for the arrival of new disease at any moment with a proper response prior to leading mass casualties.

Hi Ahmad,

I made some coorection to your answer bellow:

The emergence of new strain of E. Coli as a breaking news has shocked Europeans and health professionals recently. This information has given to public after 11 dead cases were found in Germany because of eating of contaminated vegetables. Spanish cucumbers and tomatoes were initially accused for spreading of this disease. The outbreak of new type of E.coli not only led to killing of tens of Europeans, but also tremendously destroyed Spanish economy and those who were benefiting of this trade all over the world.

What was really interesting about this story is the false, or let us say the premature judgement of officials accusing of Spanish vegetables which did not confirm by deep investigations later on. This urged the German’s authorities to announce an official apology. But is saying sorry can be a proper response? This has been remained a question and I think from humanitarian and trade viewpoints, Germany should compensate their action by paying to the farmers and traders the amount they lost.

This news can also be a warning for the health professionals to be time-alert with a proper answer for the arrival of any new disease, prior to affect people at large.

hello sir,
can i describe some environmental issue like GLOBAL WARMING...???.as i am science student and it would be easy for me to speak at length.
Thanks.

Yes, definitely.

thanks.
i have one more doubt.is there any difference between games and sports...like in an essay "Playing games teaches us about life" can i explain the qualities that a person get while playing a sport like leadership, spontaneity,brotherhood,team work etc.

Hi Sukhwinder,

Some sports are also games e.g. football, tennis. You can definitely use these sports to talk about leadership, teamwork etc.

Other sports are not really games e.g. running, swimming.

thanks sir...
