    Question My first Enlish essay,please check.

    Topic:
    Many young people who leave school with a negative attitude towards learning. Why does this happen? How to solve the problem?

    Nowadays, one of the most challenging problem of education is that young people hold negative attitudes towards learning. Due to the detrimental effects on the quality of public education such as decreasing proportion of students entering schools of higher grade and even imposing adverse effects on young people’s personal development, it is, therefore, of great necessity to explore feasible solutions.

    Few people can deny that young people are confonted with fierce competition for limited education resources, the opportunities to enter into a notableuniversity, for instance.This every desire stimulates them to try a varity of means to gain the upper hand over others, which, unfortunately, renders them stressful and anxious. Consequently, a sense of fear and resistance towards school and learning may be accumulated gradually, driving students out of their classrooms.

    Teachers’ and parents’ high expectations of young people are found to be another major contributor to this situation. Unachievable targets set by teachers or parents to encourage young people to work hard, which may just the opposite to what they wish. No matter how tremenderous efforts they made, it is still impossible to achieve such goals for students who are over-expected. In the end, a sense of frustration and self-denial make them reluctant to enter their school.

    Apart from the above-mentioned factors, over-exposure to computer games or online chat may account for this phenomenon. An experiment caried out by Japanese Central Agency explored students’ attitudes towards learning in school inrelation to computer games and online chat, and revealed that students who are indulged in morden technology were generally unwilling to have regular schooling.

    Taking the above reasons into consideration, our efforts should be directed to practical measures which are supposed to be taken to improve young people’s attitude towards schooling. For one thing, it is imperative for authorities to draw up and put forward corresponding rules in an attempt to lighten the burdens of students. For another, teaching methods should be enhanced and enriched to educate young people through entertainment, make learning more attractive.

    There is little room for doubt that the above-mentioned measures will partially help solve the thorny problem. With the help, following decades will witness positive attitude of young people towards school learning.


    Thanks your help.

    "How to solve the problem?" is not a correct English sentence. It does not contain a main verb. You could explain this to your teacher (or whoever set the question.)

    Nowadays, one of the most challenging problems of education is that young people hold negative attitudes towards learning. Due to the detrimental effects on the quality of public education, such as decreasing proportion of students entering schools of higher grade and even imposing adverse effects on young people’s personal development, it is, therefore, of great necessity to explore feasible solutions.

    Few people can would deny that young people are confronted with fierce competition for limited education resources, the opportunities to enter into a notable university, for instance. This [Thus?] every desire stimulates them to try a variety of means to gain the upper hand over others, which, unfortunately, renders makes them stressful and anxious. Consequently, a sense of fear and resistance towards school and learning may be accumulated gradually, driving students out of their classrooms.

    Teachers’ and parents’ high expectations of young people are found to be another major contributor to this situation. Unachievable targets set by teachers or parents to encourage young people to work hard, which may be just the opposite to of what they wish.
    This is not a proper sentence with 'to'. It also needs rephrasing: What is the opposite of what they wish? Unachievable targets? Young people working hard?

    No matter how tremenderous the efforts they make, it is still impossible to achieve such goals for students who are over-expected of whom too much is expected. In the end, a sense of frustration and self-denial make them reluctant to enter their school.
    Why self-denial?

    Apart from the above-mentioned factors, over-exposure to computer games or online chat may partly account for this phenomenon. An experiment carried out by Japanese Central Agency explored students’ attitudes towards learning in school in relation to their usage of computer games and online chat, and revealed that students who are indulged in this sort of modern technology were generally unwilling to have regular schooling.
    I wouldn't describe games and chat as "modern technology". You make modern technology sound like a bad thing.

    Taking the above reasons into consideration, our efforts should be directed to practical measures which are supposed to could be taken to improve young people’s attitude towards schooling. For one thing, it is imperative for authorities to draw up and put forward corresponding rules in an attempt to lighten the burdens of students. For another, teaching methods should be enhanced and enriched to educate young people through entertainment, make learning more attractive. Wouldn't this involve modern technology - which you have said is bad for them?

    There is little room for doubt that the above-mentioned measures will partially help solve the thorny problem. With the help [of what? whom?], the following decades will witness positive attitudes of young people towards school learning.


    Thanks your help.
    This is well-done. Some of your phrasing is obviously non-native, but you've made an effort to try and use advanced sentence structure and vocabulary. Sometimes this means that the sentence gets away from you (you lose track of what you intend to say, or how you should say it). But it's better to be adventurous than not try at all.

    A nice try, but a poor essay. I wish I could do better by taking more practice. Thank you very much. It is very helpful.
