    These are far too broad- you need to narrow your focus, and target Global English.

    ll I need is for someone to help me to find a specific topic for these 2 two papers. Then I will start writing them. They juust just need to be 1-2 one or two pages long.

    Coming up with an interesting topic is the most difficult part for me. :( (Use the Emoticon tab in the toolbar)

    I'll truly appreciate any help.

    I am interested in second language learning, (space required here) error detection, (spacing around punctuation)music and language or any other topic that might be related to real life communication.
    Just in case the contents of post #2 did not make sense to you, please see my amendments to your post above in red. If you are a Masters student, you should know how to write English properly. It is very important to follow the rules of written English at all times:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.- End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.

    On this forum, don't try to make emoticons using the keyboard. A full range of emoticons are available by clicking on the button in the toolbar.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    No longer true since we acquired our android app, which lacks both emoticons and the Like function.

    Ah, I didn't know that. I use the forum on my mobile but I have to do it on my browser because I have an iPhone and, for now, there is no iPhone app.
