But experienced writers know that good writing, even good descriptive writing, depends more on nouns and verbs than adjectives and adverbs. To make this point with students, I like to assign some sort of descriptive paper with one restriction: no adjectives or adverbs allowed. We composed a short paragraph together on the board first, just to show them that it really could be done.
What I remember most about that first experiment was the quality of the papers that I got back. After we read through several passages and talked about the challenges of the experience, I gave the papers back and asked them to revise. I just wondered if you managed to write a small sample of text without adjectives and adverbs ( as per your post suggested)?

We recently chatted with Neil Beaumont, CA, VP of Finance at BHP Billiton’s Saskatoon office – one of Saskatchewan’s newest CA Training Offices.  Read on to learn more about articling at this international mining, oil and gas company headquartered in Melbourne, Australia. Become a CA: What, in your view, is the single coolest thing about working at BHP Billiton? BHP Billiton: Students who article here will have the opportunity to help build a global business from scratch, using new, innovative technology.
BHP Billiton: Here, articling students very quickly gain exposure to massive capital projects and really interesting operations.
Become a CA: What would be different about training at BHP Billiton versus an accounting firm? BHP Billiton: The big difference is that the fundamental focus of a student’s role here is to build a new business.
We also centralize some of our training and, even at the junior level, BHP Billiton has a strong focus on leadership training.  Each year, students will be given the opportunity to attend a one week course with their colleagues around the world. We also have a very successful United Way campaign and hold various fundraising events throughout the year such as “Date Night” where employees and their partners get together, have fun and raise some money.   Ugly Christmas Sweater Day, which was initiated by the finance team this year, was quite a big hit and a lot of fun as well.
When is the next round of recruiting for BHP Billiton regarding recent graduates who wish to pursue the CA designation? There are 2 ways to find a CA articling position – the first is during September (CA Fall Recruit). If you aren’t able to secure employment with an approved training office during the Fall CA Recruit, you do have another option: year round recruiting.


The professional objective is one of the most important parts on your curriculum vitae; however, it is optional information. The most of the people do not write the professional objective on the curriculum, because it is not a easy task to describe and define our professional expectations. However, including our professional objectives on our curriculum vitae gives you extra points at the time when the person in charge to pick up the people takes a look on it, because it allows him to know if we are competitive and our professional goals are right, and if those goals are according with the job. If we want to write our professional objectives then they have to be written on an interesting and personal way. Remember, the people in charge of the selection always prefer a person with many specific goals. It is very common to find many curriculum vitae of people with the same general professional objective: “I want to work at a well-known company so I will be able to apply my knowledge, my development and I will grow-up professionally”. Keep always in mind that the professional objectives must be written clearly and they have to express the contributions you generated to the company.
Well then, if you want to include a good professional objective on your curriculum vitae, first at all, you have to investigate deeply about the company you attempt to, I mean, what the company necessities are, and once you have gathered all that information, then you will have enough material to write a good professional objective on your curriculum vitae. You must write a professional objective which expresses all the contributions and benefits you can offer to the company according with your professional profile.
Remember, a professional objective may be a position or function in a specific area, a place or environment where you can improve your work.
In conclusion, a good professional objective must express the achievements, goals, work experience and skills of the candidate. Espanoles, franceses, italianos, judios y hasta chinos, han buscado como destino para vacacionar a la Huasteca potosina, luego de que su principal fijacion por un destino turistico es que les transmita experiencias.
Asareth Muniz Garcia, representante de la agencia de viajes Huasteca Tour Ciudad de Mexico, describe como en los proximos anos la ruta de la Huasteca Magica podria colocar al destino como el segundo sino es que el primero de su tipo en preferencia por los extranjeros y nacionales. Aseguro que actualmente es una epoca y las circunstancias sociales limitan la salida del turismo a diferentes zonas del pais, sin embargo, agrego que el turismo en Mexico va a la alza, como ejemplo dijo que ella solo el ano pasado para la Huasteca potosina genero mas de cien viajes en epocas visitables, esto sin considerar otros destinos que mantiene en cartera del norte y sur del pais.
Somos un blog de viajeros para viajeros, de esos que nos apasionan los viajes y lo hacemos a menudo, aquellos del tipo que buscamos hacer de cada viaje una experiencia, desde que compramos los boletos de avion, reservamos hotel y empacamos la mochila.
Furthermore, I noticed that, this was a typically flawed writing with a tremendously casual approach. In order to describe a house, for example, you need to heap up some adjectives: an enormous, three-story brick house. The first time I gave the assignment to a small high school writing class, students were incredulous. I wanted more than a page of double-spaced, 12-point typeface so that they couldn’t get away with a sentence or two. The finance team provides financial information and advice to departments across the company, ranging from marketing and external affairs to business development and mining operations.  We fundamentally assist all of these areas in making business decisions.


We have a focus on making a legacy difference in the province of Saskatchewan by building one of the most innovative and sustainable mines. Plus, the company is made up of such a diverse group of professionals – accountants, engineers, lawyers – so it’s a great environment for students to start building their own networks.
They will be training in a rapidly changing industry; one that operates in a much more global context.
In September, the firms and training offices participate in on-campus recruiting for co-op, internship, and full-time hire positions. You must check with the approved training offices (such as BHP Billiton) to see if they are looking for students, and then you will apply directly to the training office.
If you think it is too difficult to write a good professional objective, do not think about writing a general objective is better, in this case it is recommendable to do not write anything on the curriculum vitae.
Likewise, I wish to gain more experience and update continuously my knowledge to offer my best years to my job. Obtaining new knowledge and experience on these areas will allow me to improve my development in such agreement. Likewise, apply my knowledge and experiences gathered before to improve the negotiations and the incomes with a new schedule designed by me, so that can help with the work, personal and economical topics.
In a jar with a tight fitting lid, combine the oil, parmesan cheese, vinegar, oregano, salt, garlic powder, and pepper; shake well.
And verbs need some choice adverbs to spice things up: she sat contemplatively, the arrow flew straight, the hound dog rested languidly. Most of them had included adjectives and adverbs unintentionally, but I overlooked all but the most obvious. I found that many of the students added fewer modifiers than the quota and some none at all. We strongly encourage you to upgrade to the latest version or use a different browser like Firefox or Chrome, as BigOven will function much better for you, and we may drop support for this browser version soon! I also remember how proud they were to have accomplished a literary feat they had believed next to impossible. They mistakenly think of description as a still-life painting instead of a live-action video.
They couldn’t imagine how they were supposed to describe a scene without any modifiers. By making specific nouns move and act with strong verbs, it’s not as hard as you might think to write modifier-free descriptions.
