It is a tantalizing job to teach the bilingual students to pass the English Regents Examination and the College Writing Test because they only have 2 or 3 years of ESL background that is equivalent to the 4th grade English proficiency level in the elementary school. However, I have been doing it for years to train them how to write with the grammatical structure and drill them on summarizing a fiction or drama, responding to a critical lens, comparing two controlling ideas of any 2 passages or books and rounding up a commentary upon completion of a book or an article.Higher Standard Writing in English focuses on the Eight Parts of Speech, the use of tenses and the formation of simple, complex and compound sentences. No matter how well organized and authentic an essay is written in the test, 2 or 3 major structural errors may lead to disqualification of the paper. Let students recognize the standardized writing skills and command writing through the proper English language technicality framework to express whatever they want. -Peter S. H. Lee, AuthorThe martial arts chapters are targeted to motivation, whereas the autobiography and the rest of the chapters are designed to show students how to write a personal statement, a formal letter, a descriptive or persuasive essay, and a book report.
