I’d like to tell about the article "Why is tutoring it is bad? " in detail.

I’ve chosen it because it appeals to my experience and interests. The author of the article is Natalya Fedotova. It is illustrated with statistics,analysis and comparison. This fact impressed me most of all some teachers give pupil bad marks to pupil paid teachers for tutoring. I couldn’t help reading it because I wanted to understand the problem. I’d like to recommend my friends,classmates and family to read it. It is rather popular in among my friends.

Does need libraries in the world?

Does need libraries in the world if there is an Internet? Library has always been a place of meeting different people and this is better than the internet. People come there to find new friends, a good book, the peace and quiet. This fact impressed me most of all there are 400 miles of bookshelves are in the Library of Congress.

I believe that libraries are needed because people need to have something not virtual.
