Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

3 star(s)

This is an informative piece of work. It includes information regarding the diverse society we live in today and provides some examples that are within context and relevant. A weakness is that the English is not very good throughout the assignment which makes it difficult to understand in some respects and there is no conclusion to the report to suggest that the aims have been achieved. Overall it is an average piece of work ***
