Hi! I have just written a paragraph that answers the following question.

Tell us what you think is the most controversial topic in Vietnam right now and what is your take on the issue? (max 300 words)

Please help me check my writing. Thank you very much!

In my opinion, the issue that raises a great deal of heated debate in Vietnam is traffic jam. We have been discussing solutions to the problems, but hardly any of them can help eliminate the traffic overload. It is common knowledge that motorcycles account for the majority of vehicles on the streets and even occupy the car lanes especially in rush hours. This can be put down to the economic benefits of motorbike, its small capacity, and easy-to-steer characteristic. Thus, we find it really hard to give up using motorbikes. After researching and consulting the reliable sources online, I would recommend the following three approaches in dealing with traffic jam caused by the considerable number of bikes. Firstly, we should replace the fixed road barriers with mobile ones. This solution may sound simple, but it could be of great help in peak hours. Moving the barriers to separate the lanes according to different times of a day will improve the traffic flow. Secondly, imposing strict laws on traffic can put the chaotic lines of motorcycles in order. By having traffic police on duty regularly to strictly punish any bike going into car lanes, Vietnamese people can gradually form an orderly travelling habit, just like we did with the law enforced to compel our wearing helmets. Finally, besides methods to restructure the traffic flow, the government should adopt a national policy on encouraging using public transport like the buses. We can do this either by rewards or disseminating social messages. With the aforementioned approaches, I believe we can make positive changes to the traffic flow and reduce the chaos on roads.

In my opinion, the issue that raises a great deal of heated debate in Vietnam is the traffic jams.

"Traffic jam" is not a good choice of words because I don't know anyone who really likes traffic jams.

Pick a topic where some people are strongly in favor of it, and others just as strongly against it. That makes a debate. Are there people in Vietnam who are strongly in favor of traffic jams?

Here are some ways you could write this:


In my opinion, the issue that raises the most heated debate in Vietnam is what to do about the terrible traffic congestion.

In my opinion, the most heated debates in Vietnam are about the terrible traffic jams.

You should break your text into paragraphs, unless you were instructed to write only one.


In my opinion, the issue that raises a great deal of heated debate in Vietnam is all the motorbikes that clog the car lanes and disrupt the flow of traffic. The drivers' misbehaviour creates terrible traffic jams. traffic jam. (It seems to me that you did not precisely identify the topic that is discussed in the rest of your paragraph.) We have been discussing solutions to the problems, but hardly any of them can help eliminate the traffic overload.

About the paragraph, I want to express my great thanks to you for making suggestions on it. I trully appreciate it and will rewrite the paragraph. Since I write this as an answer to a question I come across in a form (it says I should write in one paragraph), I will correct it and keep the form of a paragraph.

Once again, thank you for your help.

Hi, I have rewritten my paragraph.

I also have a few questions to ask. I would really appreciate your explanations.

Why should we use 'First' other than 'firstly'?

Why should I remove the word 'considerable' out of the phrase 'the considerable number of bikes'?

I think we use motorcycles a lot because they have economic benefits, have small size, and very easy to steer. Is there a way to put my thinking into words, better than my writing ' its small capacity, and easy-to-steer characteristic' ?


Thanks!
