Can someone proof read my essay

posted by .

It's supposed to be a subjective essay on the artical "Literacy in a Thousand Words"
Thanks.

The article, “Literacy in a Thousand Words,” written by Beatriz Pont and Patrick Werquin, addresses the issue of the lack of literacy skills of the U.S. population and how it is in connection with the growth of the economy. The article also examines the lack of literacy skills in many other countries. As the article continues, it emphasizes the importance of high literacy abilities in recent years. Finally, the article focuses on how all countries should try to improve their literacy skills. Thus, I agree that high literacy skills are immensely important for the populations of all countries; as they will help every population gain a more prominent economy, and more social benefits.
There are many reasons why I believe that every country requires high literacy skills in order to help the population gain a more prominent economy. Almost every job requires at least basic literacy skills. For those who lack literacy skills, even applying for a job can be extremely challenging, if not impossible. Many individuals must also be able to actively learn new intricate technologies and techniques in order to be successful in the workplace. Finally, those with higher literacy skills are more likely to have better employment opportunities, and are less likely to become unemployed. Furthermore, in every modern society, literacy abilities are pivotal in order to do well economically.

There are many renowned social benefits that accompany literacy skills. Individuals with literacy skills are more likely to have the ability to comprehend health and self-care information, and its connection to health outcomes. This can lead to increased health knowledge, and better overall health. Secondly, literacy skills empower people and promote important changes in their lives. These skills help many people to develop self-confidence, which helps them to participate in the community, find a job, and try to improve themselves further. Lastly, those with literacy skills have a higher probability of becoming informed of their rights and responsibilities as citizens and doing such things as voting and voicing their opinions. Moreover, increased literacy skills lead to many social benefits, and are fundamental to individual empowerment.
Thus, by ameliorating the literacy skills of every population, every country will gain a more notable economy, as well as many social benefits. Literacy abilities are a necessity in order to be prosperous in the workplace and to live a more fulfilled life. Furthermore, improving one’s literacy skills can make a dramatic difference throughout the course of a lifetime

    Good job.


    In the future, if nobody is available to proofread your work, you can do this yourself. After writing your material, put it aside for a day — at least several hours. (This breaks mental sets you might have that keep you from noticing problems.) Then read it aloud as if you were reading someone else's work. (Reading aloud slows down your reading, so you are less likely to skip over problems.)

    If your reading goes smoothly, that is fine. However, wherever you "stumble" in your reading, other persons are likely to have a problem in reading your material. Those "stumbles" indicate areas that need revising.

    Another option, if it is available on your computer, is to have the computer read it to you.

    Also, make use of "Spelling and Grammar" under "Tools" in your word processing program.

    Once you have made your revisions, repeat the process above. Good papers often require many drafts.
