Guide ESL for students: essay in UK colleges

How to Practice Essay Prompts for UK Colleges: Guide for ESL Students

Essay prompts are statements (usually 1 to 3 sentences long) that introduce a topic, idea or an issue and are concluded by one or more questions. It can be said that they are more detailed alternatives to topics: a prompt serves as an introduction to the subject matter and is supposed to be a starting point for the student’s written answer to the raised issue. For example: “Many people claim to have gone through some life-changing experience that altered their mindset and outlook on life. Is it true in your case? Tell about such experience and how it influenced you”.

Essay prompts are often used in English writing classes and, most notably, in college entrance exams. Many exams (SAT, for example) post prompts used in their essays online, allowing students to practice writing them before they try to participate in the real thing. It is especially important for ESL students who doubt their command of English is enough to write such an assignment. The best place to find SAT and ACT prompts is PrepSchooler – unlike the official websites it keeps them all organized on single pages, although ACT’s and SAT’s official websites have a lot of supplementary information like samples and preparation tips.

If, however, you ask yourself, “How are these prompts going to help me with my preparations?”, let us give you some tips.

Spanish internship Madrid

My experience abroad in Madrid

My name is Judith, I am 22 years and I was born and raised in the Netherlands. I do the course of Executive Secretary / Management Assistant. For my last internship, I decided to take things bigger than I did before. I wanted to do an internship abroad. While I was searching the internet, I saw a Spanish company based in Liverpool. I have always wanted to go to the UK and this company got me from the first moment. I applied for an internship position as a secretary and I got an answer within two days. During the mailing, I was even more enthusiastic than I was before. Because it is not that busy during Christmas, they gave me the opportunity to join the headquarters office in Madrid for nine weeks. They offered me free English classes and a lot of experience. I decided to take this internship.

How to deal with homesickness?

Feeling lonely in a big world

Let me tell you something about homesickness. I think that almost everyone knows what I am talking about. Homesickness is something that follows you everywhere. But is it true that it is the same with everyone? No, every single person has to deal with homesickness in his or her own way. You don’t have to do what everyone says, but you can listen to their advice. It is up to you to do something about it. Is quitting an option? Sure, but you will probably regret that for the rest of your life.
