Комментарии преподавателя:
(1) Spelling. Numerous errors which will lose marks.
      Numerous, nervous, connect, quiet

(2) Grammar. Whilst not altering the meaning, the error is basic - 'who' not 'which'.

(3) Be careful with word order 'how somebody can'.

(4) Wrong work. 'Preferation' can confuse the meaning as it could be the students attempt to state either preparation or preference which have different meanings.

(5) Inconsistency. The student uses the verb like twice in one sentence using 'to' in the second clause but omitting it in the first clause.

(6) Repetition of the word 'apartment'. It would be better to find synonyms to show a variety.

(7) Lack of articles detracts from the conclusion.

(8) Length of essay falls short.
