    Nailed English Exchange students, I pity you. Maybe you are a Chinese student who currently lives in America, just like me, or maybe you are an Eskimo who studies in Thailand. No matter where you are from and which country you are in right now, it is not easy when you are trying to communicate with foreigners in your non-native language. It really isn’t. Although I can speak and write in English pretty well now, I’ve been through so many situations where I did not understand English words at all

    Most people who bother with the matter at all would admit that the English language is in a bad way, but it is generally assumed that we cannot by conscious action do anything about it. Our civilization is decadent and our language — so the argument runs — must inevitably share in the general collapse. It follows that any struggle against the abuse of language is a sentimental archaism, like preferring candles to electric light or hansom cabs to aeroplanes. Underneath this lies the half-conscious

    same time. Television provided me with small bits of English, while my parents spoke only Russian. In a way, my first knowledge of the English language came from watching Scooby Doo and Pokémon. When I finally started grade school, I was placed into an ELL program. This placement made myself feel even worse about my English abilities and led me to use language sparingly. When I used language to speak to the class, I deliberately chose the words and the order they were in. Consequently, I found it

    respond back in English and continue to play with me. It wasn’t until a few days where I realized that they weren’t the different ones, I was, and I slowly started to change. In reality, my transformation wasn’t drastic at first, since I only just learned the basics. Red was the first word I learned. Something so simple yet is so bold. Red can draw attention towards yourself, like a woman trying to impress her flame. Red is hungry, and so was I. By the time I learned basic English words, and can string

The opening paragraph does contain a thesis statement, but it is jumbled. It states that if Marx and
