In his 2008 book, The Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell introduced a revolutionary idea that has changed how our society views success and practice. This idea is the “Ten Thousand Hour Rule.” Gladwell’s assertion is that “. . .ten thousand hours of practice is required to achieve the level of mastery associated with being a world-class expert--in anything.” I agree with Gladwell to a great extent that rigorous practice is necessary to become a world-class expert, but I disagree to a great extent that 10,000 hours is the amount of practice necessary to be an expert in any field. I believe that the 10,000 hour rule is too narrow-minded and specific, and thus, cannot apply to everybody and every situation.
Argumentative Essay What if the phrase “practice makes perfect” wasn’t actually true? Malcolm Gladwell claims that it takes 10,000 hours of practice to perfect a skill, however, some people are starting to believe that may not be the case. “Your Genes Don’t Fit. Why 10,000 Hours of Practice, Won’t Make You an Expert”, argues that mastering a skill requires innate abilities along with practice. In Gladwell’s best-selling novel, “Outliers”, the belief that 10,000 hours of practice makes a person an expert seems to be a prominent theme.

One point Swales brought up was that communication is necessary to fall under the category of a discourse community and that each discourse community must have a unique way of communicating (221). That is a way of saying that each discourse community must have their own language. If a group of people are really part of the discourse community, then they will be able to communicate fluently (Swales 221). Communication and language is a very hot topic in Gee’s article and we see that when he says, “Someone can speak English, but not fluently. However, someone cannot engage in a discourse in a less than fluent matter.
Langan (2011) said that writing is a skill. It means that writing is a skill which can be learnt by anyone by practising and hard work, because it is not a natural gift. Writing is a discovery process which involves ideas, how to organize them to be coherent and structural. In the other words, writing is the mental work of inventing ideas about how to express them into statement and paragraph. It means that writing is a way to produce language that comes from one’s thought.
2014). This group of customers will have an even harder time buying luxury goods when they have to pay more tax. Due to their price sensitivity they will be likely to not buy the good anymore after an increase in price. An example to illustrate this situation can be a person buying a wedding ring once in his life or going on a relaxing holiday. While before the luxury tax he might have been able to go on a luxury holiday every 10 years, he might now decide to not go anymore at all.

As time progresses into the 21st century, so too does the meaning of literacy. With the rise of what is considered ‘new literacies’ such as the Internet, more students are increasingly using the Internet and other electronic technologies such as computers and smartphones to engage in and access various new age prints, and visual and digital texts, using and modifying language to create context which have been created as new forms of literacy (Tompkins, Campbell and Green, 2012). Blog posting websites, emailing, playing online games and multimodal stories all require different genres of language in order to convey meaning, which has had an influence of the changing social view of language, which can be seen embedded in the
