The great Aristotle declared, “We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly.” Virtue should be defined as perfect or righteous. However, it can be argued that because Ransom is a man, and man is sinful, he could not choose to be virtuous. Because this is the case, and man is inherently sinful as Jesus said in Matthew, “No one is good but One, that is, God” (Mark 10:18), we will adapt Merriam Webster’s definition of virtue, “Conformity to a standard of right, morality. A particular moral excellence” (merriam-webster.com).
My experience in English 1010 was great. My writing skills were very poor at the beginning of the semester. I did not know how to write correct sentence structure.

I am writing to you on the past semester that we 've spent together. I enjoyed taking this class because I think that it helped me improve my writing skills and helped me become a better writer. Before taking this class I didn 't believe to think that I could to be a good writer. But you had a great system with different forms of writings to help conquer me and my fellow classmate’s fears in writing. I enjoyed the short writing assignments the most, because it was entertaining and different.
In the very beginning of English 101, I was informed that homework will be daily and intense. Be prepared for class counted as participation grade, as well as speaking in class. I thought my papers needed to be up to the standards at the beginning of class because the syllabus set certain concerns by the way it was phrased. I was expected to summit my daily assignments on time and improve on my writing as the semester went by, and I was overwhelmed by such responsibility. That was how I first came into realization of my expectations that were needed to be met in order for me to pass the class.
In the novel Jasper Jones the protagonist Charlie is faced with racial aggravation towards his friend Jeffery and his family. As the story progresses, even though they seem small at the time, these racial stereotypes have cruel and unfounded aggravation. Silvey uses a range of language techniques to emphasise how unjustified the racial aggravation is. Jeffery is considered a racial outsider by the villagers and this is evident by the way they treat him.
Growing up, language art has always been my toughest subject since I started school. I lived my whole life in Vietnam till the age of six when my family migrated to America. Additionally, I couldn’t speak proper English until I was in middle school, so you can imagine the complication I experience when it comes to writing assignment. Throughout high school, I would spend hours on a paper just to get the bare minimum passing grade in English class. As a result of this, I view language art as a pointless subject that cannot be utilize in the real world.
Sex, in the existence of human evolution, has transformed beyond the carnal desires of mankind. Through the lascivious influence gained from Eros, the god of sexual attraction, to the modern way of placing wild rutting into tall passages of text, humans view the lustful actions as, not only pleasurable but distasteful to consume in broad daylight. Literature has manifested its own personal universe in which Victorian rules of modesty do not exist. Modern works of literature have shown, almost enforced, the idea of causality during sexual relationships. The censorship of erotic literature forces vivid alterations of society 's perception of intercourse and romance, which, not only damages the self but as seen in D.H. Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover and Valley of the

The third section examines the notion of inexpressibility in various other schools while the fourth section is the authors take on the extent to which language can be reliable to express or to understand anything.
Should dying languages be saved? Over the last few decades learning English has become more important or even better said a must to live in today’s world. Globalization has made it occur that more and more people are learning the English language, because people from different countries want to communicate with each other, however because all these people are learning English or another often spoken language nowadays they stop speaking their original language or become less fluently at speaking it. This causes the original language to be replaced with in this case English, in the end no one of that society speaks the original language anymore and it causes the language to become extinct.
