Suggested Next Steps:

1. Grammar is a serious issue, you need to work on singular/plural, articles, and verb endings. I suggest you go to my grammar page.

2. Work on connecting more of your simple sentences together to create more compound and complex sentences. An excellent site that explains sentence parts and allows you to do practice quizzes is at http://esl.about.com/od/intermediatewriting/a/cplex_sentence

Students original essay (no correction made)

One giant step forward for mankind is that human can land on the moon! And there comes an argument putting the funds to exploring space or not. In my opinion, much problems existing on our earth before we do the exploration programme.

The most thing we should do first is reducing the gap between the rich and the poor country. It’s a good idea to give some financial aid to poor countries. Illiteracy, homeless, jobless can be seen everywhere because the state has limited public funds to built schools so that it’s very difficult to find a good occupation. Poverty leads to fighting! It is apparent that wealthy countries could do more to help people in poor countries. If they want to keep the globe peaceful/

Furthermore, the phenomenon of pollution of environment has increased nowadays. And it threatens the continuity and survival of the human race. So resolving the pollution is more emergent than exploring the space. Also many people think international organization must be set to intervene in the world affairs to resolve the pollutions such as soil pollution, air pollution or light pollution.

In addition, many diseases are not sure or have no good treatment these days such as AIDS and HIV. So human should put more attention on the treatment of these terrible diseases and make patients recover from these diseases without any pain. Moreover, many illness bring great pain to human beings like cancers so we should pay more attention on the methods to fight diseases rather than galaxies.

I believe that there are still many problems on the world which we should do first. It’s not good idea to spend huge amounts of money on exploring space. Making our world cleaner and more peaceful is more important.
