AW2 2018 Essay #4 Class Collection

These are some of the persuasive essays (#4) written by my  Academic Writing II (fall semester), 2018 students at Kyoto Prefectural University.  All names have been removed from the essays.

The purpose of publishing this collection is to give other students learning academic writing in English the opportunity to read some (Japanese) EFL learners' explanatory essays.

Students wrote two or three drafts, which I corrected and commented on, before writing this final version. For this publication, I added a large indent and  removed unnecessary blank lines. Other than that, I did not correct errors in these final versions. Therefore, these should not be considered as model essays to copy. 

 For more student essays, as well as for corrections, comments and explanations by an English-speaking academic instructor, please visit

Feedback and comments are welcome.
