40 minutes, 250 words at least.


Although it is thought (WHILE is better here. Avoid passive voice.) While some people think that online courses are better to study, other people others favor classroom education. In my opinion, considering its ability to prepare individuals for work life professional success and some other benefits, classroom education is way far better than online courses.

On the one hand, online study is cheaper than classroom coaching. and convenient. (Let us first raise the idea of financial savings first.) Firstly, (You’ve already begun with the first point in the previous sentence. This is an explanation of that sentence. Unnecessary or wrong cohesive devices will reduce the CC score.) the fee of online courses is very less as compared to classroom ones.
