How to write a Composition

▪ What is a composition type of text?

According to the online Cambridge Dictionary It’s “ a short piece of writing about a particular subject, done by a student”. Also known as a Review The main purpose of a review is describing, judging or even expressing a personal opinion about something based on what the writer knows or has experienced. Both Description and explanation are key functions for this time of text and it will normally include a recommendation to the reader.
Writing a composition can be fun if you do it the right way. Here you can check some exceptionally useful tips on making a good composition.

▪ Tips for Writing an Introduction to a City

▪ Read, watch, or listen information about it more than once, to confirm your first overall impressions.

▪ Discuss one aspect of the city in each paragraph. For example, one paragraph about general facts and population, one paragraph about industries, one paragraph about culture, etc.

▪ Use resources to help you find facts about the city, you can use this https://alphaidiomas.blogspot.com.br/2018/01/composition-tips.html to assist you. Keep in mind to check for more online.

▪ Take a stand by stating your opinion, being it negative, positive or mixed;

▪ Attention at the usage of possessive adjectives when writing about a city. For example, Its (not his/her) main exports are ...

▪ When using numbers, write out the numbers up to twenty. For larger numbers, use numerals. For example: There are two professional sports organizations ... BUT there are over 130,000 inhabitants in XYZ.

 ▪ Write 'million' when expressing very large numbers. For instance: 2.4 million people live in the greater metro area.

▪ Make sure to CAPTALIZE specific names of companies and monuments.

 ▪ Never forget to include all the advanced grammar you are learning. If you learnt a new tense or technique, be sure to use it at your next composition, this way, your composition will turn from an ordinary text, to a masterpiece of writing. (Read more)

▪ Formula to write a composition

1 - Introduction: For every composition (except poetry), you will need to introduce either your topic and position (for an essay) or characters, plot and setting (for narrative, short story and play) or place and its general information.
2 - Body:  As mentioned on the tips above, the body can be made of several paragraphs talking about different topics inside the main subject of the composition. For example, a composition about a city could have separate paragraphs mentioning food, culture, touristic spots, nightlife, safety, cost of life, weather and seasons, people’s behavior and so on (not necessarily on the order mentioned).
3 – Conclusion:  This simply wraps up what you have said in your composition. It can basically restate what you said in your introduction. If your composition is longer, you can sum up your main points. Try to phrase them a little differently so it will not sound repetitive.
Use P-O-W-E-R: This is one of the best writing techniques out there. You have done the P-plan, O-organize and W-write components; now you will finish with E-edit and R-revise. You will do this for every type of writing. Reread your work. Look for spelling, grammar, and content mistakes.

 Analyze critically the information you get

Analyzing all the data you’ve found on the internet is an important process to create a very good composition. You have a great departure point using your Material from Alpha Idiomas, however go for more, keep in mind that time flies, and things change quickly.
 You can do so by:
·          ▪ Checking its integrity.
·          ▪ Comparing to other sources.
·          ▪ Asking to people that have direct contact with the subject.

Global Issues: Water Crisis

Water Crisis

“Clean, safe drinking water is scarce. Today, nearly 1 billion people in the developing world don't have access to it. Yet, we take it for granted, we waste it, and we even pay too much to drink it from little plastic bottles.
Water is the foundation of life. And still today, all around the world, far too many people spend their entire day searching for it.” (Continue reading...)

▪ Water Crisis Causes
▪ Pollution: Shanghai, with its fancy cafes, glitzy shopping malls and organic health food shops, is emblematic of improving quality of life for China’s urban middle class. Yet while the city’s veil of smog has lifted slightly in recent years, its water pollution crisis continues unabated – 85% of the water in the city’s major rivers was undrinkable in 2015, according to official standards, and 56.4% was unfit for any purpose.
(Read more)

▪ Groundwater overdraft: Groundwater overdraft occurs when groundwater use exceeds the amount of recharge into an aquifer, which leads to a decline in groundwater level. This condition is occurring in an increasing number of groundwater basins throughout California, and is affecting the state in many ways.
(Read more)

▪ Population growth: Water is a key element of life for everyone on Earth. As the world’s population grows, the demand for water mounts and the pressure on finite water resources intensifies. Climate change, which is also closely tied to population growth, will also lead to even greater pressures on the availability of water resources.
(Read more)

▪ Water privatization: The process of water privatization in Chile, which began in 1981 under General Pinochet, established a model for water management that strengthened private water rights, adopted a market-based allocation system and reduced state oversight. That model became emblematic of neoliberal reforms heavily promoted by the World Bank and International Monetary Fund.
These reforms fundamentally changed the way water is valued and managed globally. No longer a mere necessity for human survival, water has become an object of international financial speculation and experts predict that “blue gold” will soon become the most important physical commodity worldwide, dwarfing oil and precious metals.

▪ Bad insfrastructure: Failure to replace and upgrade our country’s water infrastructure poses a severe risk to both the quality and quantity of the country’s water supplies.

▪ Water misuse and overuse: “The big cities like New York, Chicago and San Francisco, consume massive amounts of water daily due to their massive populations concentrated in one area. New York City, for instance, consumed 1007.2 million gallons of water per day in 2009 (NYC Government). This is 125.8 gallons per person per day. To put this amount in comparison, most people living in Africa only use around 5.28 gallons per day (Water for Africa). Therefore, the average American living in NYC is using 25 times more water than the average public who is living in Africa. In no economy is this comparison acceptable.”

▪ Diseases in relation with inadequate water supply: These diseases result from the lack of adequate water supply for human use. The pathogens are passed on faecal-orally from humans to humans or by contact with contaminated surfaces.
▪ List

▪ Ten countries most in need of clean water: The goal of World Water Day is to raise awareness about the water crisis that is happening in our world. We need to educate ourselves on where the crisis is taking place and then we need to do our best to make it so that there will never be a need for another World Water Day.
