Hi everyone,

Christyzhongs, one of the very active members on the site, sent a very nice email asking why the essay forum part of is closing for new essays.  

As I mentioned, I hope it's a temporary closure, not a permanent one.

Here's my full reply with some of the reasons why the forum is not accepting any more essays for now.

Hi Mr.Enda,


Ive just back to home, found that bad news, feeling regret as you said you are going to close this site. It's a pity I come and dont drop a line now. Believe me or not all these last months  were such  kind of habit that I come here and have a look at your comments and site, or rewrite other essays. I guess I rewrite many essays during 4 months ago hoping to got improved and also carried out surveys to response visitor's question. But, I know that anwering all of those questions is really endless or demanding job from you.


However, let me ask you to set up a place in this site to send our speaking text. You know that many studenets are lazy or lacks appropriate partners to practise and also it is a great chance to them to come now and then and write their thoughts that others leave a comments on them. I honestly think that we cannot improve our essays/ speaking unless we type them by ourselves even we write some lines every day or write comments here. I really know that this really works miracle.

I do appreciate all your efforts during this year .

Many thanks,

The suggestion of Brain is awesome. While I guess if we could add each other via skype; therefore, we can be partners. We can practice speaking English in this way.


I also want to say that Enda is so kind. He use his leisure time to help us, I dont know how to thank him.


Anyway, I would like to say I am so appreciate for all ur help, without u I cant improve my writing skills until now. I hope I can do more in this forum, although my English is not good.


Big thx,
