    Dear emsr2d2,
    Thank you for your words.
    I sincerely apologize for using quick English as I had sent that message from my cell phone.
    I will be very grateful if you can help me evaluate the recent essay I posted.
    Regards,
    Manish

    Re: Help for IELTS essay preview

    I think you are relying too heavily on style, and are light on substance. "The infrastructure of urban cities will not be influenced' by an influx of rural people, according to your conclusion. Urban cities is a pleonasm, redundant. 'Influence' means ''affect,' and no reasonable person would think rapid urbanisation could possibly happen without affecting the infrastructure.

    While I can generally get your meaning, your over-writing makes it hard to give you a high mark.

    Dear Konungursiva,
    Thank you very much for highlighting my weak points. I will try not to overwrite or overelaborate some points too much.
    Regards,
