    It's OK though I don't see any reason to use the word "English". Surely, it's simply not good practice to use too many bombastic words in an essay, regardless of which language you're writing it in.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    I am sorry for a new question here, but can someone show me "a bombastic" word?
    How I have read from post above: the usage bombastic words in an essay isn't good.
    If I have made any mistakes, please tell me about them. I need to improve my English anyway and I hope you'll help me.

    "Bombastic writing" might be better, it's true but this list of definitions might help.
