Plagiarism in the ESL Classroom” authors Lenora C. Thompson and Portia G. Williams talk about a freshmen student by the name of Makiko who recently came to the united states and started off as a ESL student and in her first year of college she was accused of plagiarism. Makiko claimed to not understand why she is supposed to give credit in her work, but since her old ESL said this topic was in her class Makikos excuse was not valid, so she was suspended for two years from the university (Thompson and Williams). I understand the students point because i once was also a ESL student and didn't understand why we do things the way we do in our English classes. When I came to America I was 7 years old so I started to learn about these rules at a younger age, but the fact that I had to follow the same rules as everyone else and they weren't bent for me made it harder for me but it did benefit me. Plagiarism is a cultural difference some countries like Asia encourage students to memorizes well known authors work because it shows intelligence and good judgment so they believe that in order to be the best you have to copy and learn from the best (Thompson and Williams).
