Please don't be mad at me kitosdad, I promise that I will write my essays every other day after this. Please rate it for me as an ETS examiner.

Thank you

Choose one of the following transportation vehicles and explain why you think it has changed people’s lives.
- Automobiles
- Bicycles
- Airplanes
Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.


I think every transportation vehicle has played an important role in human’s history and their lives. So, choosing one as the most important invention for us is not wise. But if I have to choose one among these three options, I prefer to choose Automobiles as the major vehicles which changed people’s lives. My reasons for my opinion can be defined in these terms; generality in use, comfortably on trips and variety in kinds.

Nowadays with developing the big cities and establishing the huge cities, transportation has become the major problem of their residents. Except from those who choose the public transportation systems as their primary method of transportation, the other ones must choose a general vehicle of transportation which can be used in everywhere and every time. The only answer which contains these options is automobiles. No one can use an airplane as his transportation vehicle because they need airports for landing and are not able to land in the streets. Beside bicycles can’t be used every time of the year like in winters.

The second reason of my choice is comfortably in trips. Most of the peoples are afraid of air trips because of the air crashes and also nobody likes to have a trip to another country or a place with a bicycle. For example you can’t go to a party while you are wearing an expensive costume with a bicycle.

My last but not least reason is variety in kinds which the cars have while the other vehicles don’t have. There are lots of car companies around the world which produce the huge numbers of models in many different colors and styles everyday. While you may not be able to choose an airplane or a bicycle with the style which you like.
In short, as to my conclusion; I choose the automobiles as the most valuable vehicles which made lots of differences in human’s lives.

I think every MODE OF TRANSPORT has played an important role in THE history and LIVES OF HUMANS, so choosing ONLY one as the most important invention for us is not EASY.
If I have to choose one among these three options, I prefer to choose THE automobile, as the ONE vehicle THAT HAS changed people’s lives.
My reasons for my opinion can be defined in these terms; generality in use, comfort on trips and THE HUGE CHOICE OF MODELS AVAILABLE.

Nowadays with developMENT and establishing OF huge cities, transportation has become the major problem of ALL residents. Except from those who choose TO USE the public transportation systems as their primary method of transportation, the other ones must choose a general vehicle of transportation, which can be used everywhere AND AT ANYTIME .
The only VEHICLE which contains these VIRTUES is THE automobile.
No-one can use an airOplane as his transportation vehicle because they need airports for landing, and are not able to land in the streets.
Bicycles can’t be used every time of the year like in Winter.

The second reason of my choice is THE COMFORT AFFORDED ON trips.

Most people are afraid of air trips because of the air crashes, and also nobody likes to take a trip to another country ON a bicycle.

For example you can’t go to a party while you are wearing an expensive costume ON A bicycle.

My last but not least reason is THE variety OF MODELS AND SPECIFICATION which cars OFFER while the other vehicles don’t have SUCH CHOICES.
There are lots of car companies around the world THAT produce the huge numbers of models in many different colors and styles everyday, while you may not be able to choose an airOplane or a bicycle IN the style which you like.
In short, as to my conclusion; I choose the automobile as the most valuable vehicle which HAS made lots of difference in human’s lives.

A so-so essay Mix. You are racing against time to improve. It is a pointless race unless you improve along the way. Do as you have said, and rest a day between essays. Review your "mistakes," and read as much as possible
Read EACH SENTENCE as an individual exercise and learn from the writer. What he is saying, and more importantly, HOW he is saying it.

Kitos.
I can't rate your essay as you wished, but I would give you 6/10. You can do better!
