Essay on Teaching or Learning Talent

by Esi

Hi guys. I was wondering if you could take a look at my task 2 essay. I really need to know my level!!

It’s generally believed that some people are born with certain talents, for instance for sport or music, and others are not. However, it is sometimes claimed that any child can be taught to become a good sports person or musician.

Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.

it is frequently believed that some people have inherited talents and skills for specific activities (Carriers, sports, arts, etc). Their success is considered to be a result of their genetics characteristics and talents. In the hand there is a point of view that anyone can achieve his goals through training, practicing and trying.
The importance of inborn talents are clear and explicit. There are many examples of who have significantly higher abilities than others in specific area. For example the genius and talent of Maradonna as one of the biggest footballers until now, has been widely accepted. Mozart had an inherited talent in music as a composer. No one could build those symphonies without an inborn genius and talent.

On the other hand there are many people that don't have any talent in some disciplines and fields but they overcome this lack of talent through working hard and being motivated. But definitely there are some disciplines or fields that talent is critically needed. Like singing that needs a good God given voice.

In my opinion, although genetics and inborn abilities are critically important, but hardworking and motivated people can compensate their lack of talent. It doesn't need to mention that all talented people would not be prosperous and successful. Many people waste their talents and sometimes they die without knowing them.
