    2. Today I’m going to talk about the following notion: the idea of progress. First of all, I would like to define what progress means to me. The definition that I would give it is that progress is the idea that the world can become better thanks to the evolution of science, technology, and as a result of this, quality of life. In my view, the most interesting, pleasing and positive manifestation of progress is robots. As far as I’m concerned, I strongly support the fact that robots will change our lives in the future. Indeed, they are machine-controlled by a computer that is used to perform a complex series of actions automatically. The reason why I feel pleased with the introduction of robots into our society is that it could have a beneficial impact on my entourage. Let’s take my mother, for example. She is a night nurse, and during the rest of the day she’s at home spending hours cleaning the house and preparing food for my father and I. She often complains about being tired and not ever having a second to get some rest. But now with the evolution of robots, some will be able to help with these chores, and could therefore allow her to relax. Under this category falls autonomous vacuum cleaners and washing machines. Now I would like to talk about Leka. The Leka smart toy is a robot who helps children affected by autism and other developmental disabilities be able to learn and communicate with others better. When I was in primary school, I had a friend with autism who was 5 years older than me and we shared the same hobbies. However, through the years, I began to become more interested in other things and we drifted apart. I think that robots like Leka could allow them to keep loyal friends, make sure that they don’t end up only knowing the feeling of abandonment, and help them grow at their own pace. Finally, robots can help with risky jobs such as underground or mine work, but also in the medical field. There is a robot named Robodoc that is able to perform hip surgery without the help of an actual surgeon. I think that many people agree with me about the fact that robots improve our quality of life. They help us progress, save lives, and allow us to have better accuracy. However, it is true that some people disagree with the introduction of robots into our lives. They believe that it can be dangerous, which does hold some truth. As Isaac Asimov said, we must impose rules to avoid Hollywood scenarios such as ‘The Terminator’. There are also people who are upset about robots potentially replacing many of the jobs in our society. However, these people seem to forget that even if some jobs do in fact disappear, a lot of new jobs will come onto the scene. Each robot will need a human capable of repairing and improving it, and thus new employment opportunities are developed.

    2. I think I should read books to my son as long as he wants me to. My son cannot read words by himself so I have to read books to him anyways. But even if he could read by himself, I would still read to him if he wanted me to do so. There can be many reasons that children still ask you to read out loud even though they can read by themselves. Children who recently learn phonics can read books by themselves. But they have to pay attention to decode words so much that it is hard to enjoy the story as they read. They have to read some easy books such as readers to practice their reading skill, which don’t match their cognitive level. So they want you to read some books where they can actually enjoy the story. Some children may like the moment when their parents read books to them even though they can read comfortably by themselves. They may feel the parents pay full attention to them, so they can share real stories of their life that they may not do at other times. I don’t think it is beneficial to push children to read by themselves. Eventually they will become an independent reader. I quite enjoy myself reading books to my son, so there is no reason, whatsoever, to stop doing this so early.

    2. I am new to the platform, so I didn't know that was meant to be two questions. In English we now see phrases like he/she and him/her, so I thought you were expressing yourself in a similar way. You should say "Parenting courses are beneficial" because "courses" is a plural word, and "are" agrees with it in number. With respect to "parents should attend parenting courses because it/they can equip..." I am assuming that "it/they" refers to "parenting courses" and not to "parents" because you wouldn't refer to parents as "it." Because it is referring to a plural noun (courses), you would have to use "they". However, "they" usually refers to people rather than things, so that's why I originally changed it to "such courses". But if I had to choose between "it" and "they", I would choose "they" to match the plurality of the antecedent noun, "courses".

    2. From the first two paragraphs, the writer highlights the contrast between his positive thoughts about his physical condition which prevents him from speaking and writing properly, and the negative experiences he had with his teachers during his youth. The writer draws a distinction between, on the one hand, his view of making the best of his struggle with dyslexia, considering himself as the "architect" and the "designer" of his own world; and, on the other hand, reminding himself of the problems he had at school, when listening to his problems was considered old-fashioned and 'not allowed'. Without a shadow of a doubt, he describes the teachers' behaviours as the worst imaginable, reinforcing the sentiment of sadness, injustice and loneliness, referring to them as people with 'no humanity and no compassion'.

    2. Females are discriminated in many positions and jobs. Employers are always concerned about having to cover costs for maternity leave, so they always want to know the female employee's marital status and plans to have children. Regarding this phenomenon, the Chinese government has taken steps to combat gender discrimination which benefits the economy's development. A law has been passed that employers and recruiters who engage in gender discrimination in job interviews will be punished. Additionally, more serious violations of the law such as (you might want to include an example of what's more serious) may result in further disciplinary actions.
