    It isn't necessary to write lengthy essays to get good marks. It's the quality that matters. I have never written more than three sides as an answer to a question and I managed to get a master's.

    Given that you are doing such a degree, take a look at guides to writing here:

    Respected Teacher,
    Thanks for giving a good website about writing story.
    There is a confusion about english spelling and pronunciation like in that words:
    tsunami,here "T" is silent i dont understand why is it so as when we are going to pronunce it,it reads "sunami",i think to make english language more easy the silencer should be discarded as it will be convenient for the foreign people too, to understand it(english language) more easily.same like that there are some words as:honesty,knuckle,pseudopodia etc.
    Thanks
    from student
