There are numerous health problems in shanty towns. Firstly, because the sites are illegal the government does not provide piped water. As a result, drinking and bathing water are usually dirty and this causes diseases such as dysentery, typhoid and hepatitis, as well as skin and eye diseases. Secondly, houses are often overcrowded and have poor air circulation. This makes it easier to catch diseases like flu, TB and diphtheria where infection enters through the throat. Thirdly, there are no drains, sewers or rubbish collection services. The resulting pools of stagnant water and heaps of household waste attract rats and insects, which can pass on diseases.

The government could do a lot to solve these problems. For example, they could supply clean, piped water to individual houses or, at least, to neigbourhoods. This would make drinking water safe and reduce infections. In addition, the authorities could provide householders with building materials to improve their conditions and educate them about the importance of ventilation. Lastly, the city council could construct drains and provide a rubbish collection service to reduce the risk of infections spread by rats and insects.

    An indirect way to give corrective feedback is to provide the student with a model answer. So, for example, if he says: Columbus find America in 1492 , you could reply: Yes, you''''''''re right. That''''''''s when he discovered America. There is conflicting research evidence as to whether this kind of feedback is effective, so it''''''''s best not to overdo it.

    Imagine you are walking down a market street where everyone is speaking very loud and fast. It seems like they are fighting, but they’re not. You hear a conversation, but you can’t comprehend the meaning and the way they speak is unusual. Elizabeth Wong expressed her painful experience growing up in a multicultural atmosphere by writing “The Struggle to Be an All-American Girl” in the Los Angeles Times. Her experience is the same as mine, I desire to reach an educational goal in the United States. The United States is a powerful country, with advanced technology and a great education system. I have lived in the United States for three years. It isn’t comfortable to be an American like someone said. I feel anxious in a classroom where Americans surround me. I also feel uncomfortable, with American customs, such as wearing shoes in the house. These things are odd to me because I am one hundred percent Thai. During my first math class in the United States, the teacher did roll call and explained the first chapter. One of my classmates raised his hand and told the teacher that he disagreed. The teacher allowed him to share his idea with all students, and most of students agreed with him. I don’t know how they can participate with each other in class like that. It’s very difficult for me to raise my hand and ask a question. I have grown up to do what the teacher says, remember the entire lesson and get my homework done. Once, my teacher couldn’t solve a problem that I understood. I wanted to raise my hand and tell everyone that I understood the problem. I was shaking, my hands were cold and my heart was pounding. I was too timid to express my idea, especially in English, for I was embarrassed of my accent. Finally, I quieted my mind. I’m still Thai. I was an eager student in my country, but not in United States. I don t have enough confidence to share my opinion with the class. One time, my friend came over to my house. He walked into my house right away without taking his shoes off. I didn’t want to make him feel bad because it’s normal for Americans to do this, but in my house it was frowned upon. I tried to ignore it, but I couldn’t. After that, I asked him to take his shoes off because I wanted to try them on. Then, I persuaded him to wear slippers, which are more comfortable. He didn’t know that not wearing shoes in the house was very important to me. In shoes, you walk outside the house, you step in dirt, and you are then allowed to walk i the house? The house should be neat, and we should respect it. Because of this, I am afraid to ask my American friend to come over my house again. It s not because he wore the shoes in my house, it’s because of me. I’m Thai and I m still one hundred percent Thai. I prefer to uphold my customs. I can’t allow wearing shoes in the house. In conclusion, the United States is where I got my first job and payed for everything by myself. I can now study any major I want. It’s where I have an opportunity to improve my knowledge. Even though some parts of American culture conflict my own life style, I’m open-minded. I understand the how people spend their time better. My point of view toward life has changed to be more admiring of Americans. I realize that it’s infinite culture is fascinating, and you should try to experience many things. Your essay is good, but I m not sure I caught all of the tense mistakes. You tend to replace a s with the s and switch past and present tense, but overall pretty good english. You have a fairly extensive vocabulary too. Be sure to indent five spaces at the beginning of each paragraph too.
