Hi!

I need the correction of this two compositions. They should have CAE's level.

text about What People like to get as Presents
People often receive unwanted gifts for their birthday. The truth is many people wants either money or a simple present such as flowers or a kiss not things they already have. I know about this subject because an experience made me realize of what people want.

Last Monday was my Aunt's birthday. We had a party and the critical moment was the one in which we had to give her the presents. I had bought a bag for him but, unfortunately, she did not like it. Perhaps because she has three or four bags and does not need anymore. I realized these kinds of gifts are not wanted.

Money is probably the best gift that can be given. I usually ask for money for my birthdays because I often save money to buy expensive things such as a camera which hardly is bought for birthday. I am planning to buy my own television for my bedroom that is an example of why I like receiving money as a gift.

The last option is simple presents such as flowers or a kiss. You might say people do not like them because those things do not have any value but I can assure sometimes people around you prefer simple presents instead of material expensive things. Have you ever kissed your girlfriend after you have not seen her for a long time? It is a wonderful moment and cannot be compared with a watch, for example.

My conclusion is that sometimes it is better to give someone a hug, a kiss or a simple present instead of expensive stuff which could not be useful

Text about learning a new language

Being bilingual or even trilingual is considered very important for people's growth. The reasons to learn a foreign language are remarkable: To get a well-paid job, to know about other cultures and to have the ability to talk with foreign people who do not speak the same language as you.

Nowadays, the only way to get a good job and be well paid is to know how to speak two or even three languages. If you do not know how to speak English, you are in disadvantage comparing with people who know. Although English is required in most of the jobs, it is not the only language demanded. Someone who does not know English will probably get a lower wage and be excluded from many jobs.

Languages involve wonderful feelings and one of them is to discover others' culture. One of the most interesting cultures in the world is the French one. People study French because they are willing to know French’s customs so language is one of the methods to learn about them. People not only learn a new language to get a good salary, but also to learn about other culture.

Finally, many people just learn a new language to have the ability to talk with people who come to their countries for tourism. It is said nothing can be compared with understanding someone who speak other language and can help him. "Boom" of tourism in some countries such as Argentina, Brazil, and China makes people to learn a second language to understand tourists.

In summary, learning a second language will open doors to new employment opportunities. Whatever is the reason you learn one, learning a new language is a smart decision.
