All through history, great thinkers from all areas of society have spoken on the importance of having a good education, but recently the importance of a good education has been under attack. Critic's claim it's gotten too expensive and has very little value compared to its costs.
History as well as the current geopolitical circumstances proves that the long term cost of an uneducated society can be even more disastrous. With so many nations developing at a frantic rate, the need for a top notch education system can't be overestimated. In order for us to remain competitive we need people with the knowledge, skills and discipline for the next century. Many developing nations already recognize that their most valued asset is their young. In some countries after a person graduates from high school, they're required to either join the military or go to college, cost free.

Rule 1: Use Synonym Swaps - The Strength of Simplicity
I'm sure you know what synonyms are. If you don't, a synonym is simply a word that has the same or nearly the same meaning as another word. For example, 'funny' is a synonym of 'humorous'. This rule is all about using synonyms to expand our vocabulary and make us sound much more fluent.
We all use some words too often in English. Even native speakers do it. This can make you sound like you are repeating yourself.
For example, I often hear students repeating the same words again and again, like this: "that painting is beautiful", "your daughter is beautiful", "London is a very beautiful city", "you have very beautiful eyes" etc.
Often, students get so familiar with some words that they fail to expand their vocabulary. I tried and tried to think of a solution to this problem, when it suddenly hit me: simply use a synonym!
Here is how you put this rule into action: use a thesaurus to find a synonym for a word you use too much. Then, ...

While we are doing certain task suddenly we remember that something we have to do in the kitchen. When we are in the kitchen we simply forget what we have to do and feel stupefied and helpless. While we have a saunter we come across a good friend but don't remember his name however hard we think. While we are writing an examination we just don't remember that one important point. The other day when I helped myself a cup of tea, I was stirring and stirring the tea for a while and realized that there was no sugar only after having the first sip. Last week I had to discuss with a friend whose office is at the 20th floor. After the discussion I left his office and had to use the stairs as the elevator was not working. On reaching the 1st floor I remembered I left my phone at the office and had to climb up all the 20 flights of the stairs. There are numerous ...
