Ridiculously Minor Grammar Issue

1 comment

HI,

I received the following notification just now:

You sent you a telegram.

Frankly, I am deeply offended by the fact that you here believe that my national advisers cannot be bothered to use proper grammar. It's "you sent yourself a telegram." For shame.

OK, just kidding, but, is there a really easy way to fix this for the sake of grammatical purity here?

Thanks

 

I did not find the right solution from the internet.

Everything was perfect...except the writing example. What a piece of crap. I didn't have a writing sample from my UG program, so I wrote one for the applications. It was the most forced, well researched, piece of crap and it's such an important part of the applications. After I sent it, I noticed that I left a foot note labeled (cite source). WTH!?! I'm already counting myself out for those programs, but we shall see.

One application needed a shorter writing sample, so I broke down the longer piece of crap. I took a different approach to the research without having to rewrite everything. My new writing sample is AMAZING. I could quite easily make this second essay longer, and it is perfectly focused for the programs that I am applying to attend...but it's too late. The applications are in except for this last one. It's my second choice so it wouldn't be bad to get accepted to only that program.

I just try not to think about it too much.

    You could be in the category of a morning person or a night owl. However, if you are one of those innumerable people who has enrolled in a good foreign language school to learn a new language , it can help if you are an insomniac, according to a study conducted by Duolingo. The study concluded that if a person makes a regular practice of practicing the foreign language he or she is learning prior to going to bed at night, there is a greater likelihood of remembering it well. To explore the subject even further, many studies have claimed that sleep has a positive influence on learning. In 2016, a study was conducted that investigated the relationship between sleep and repeated practice have on information retention in the long-run. It was particularly effective for getting familiar with the vocabulary of a foreign language. The study was conducted on 40 participants who practiced vocabulary on foreign languages, 50 percent of them learned in the evening and reviewed the lesson the next day morning. The other 50 percent did the reverse. They learned the lesson in the morning and reviewed the lesson in the same evening. Seven days later and then 6 months later, the retention of these participants were assessed by the researchers. It was discovered by the researchers that the participants who slept between learning and reviewing the lessons enjoyed retention for a longer time period. But practicing a foreign language before going to sleep at night is not the only way. You should make a daily habit of learning the new language and do it consistently. www.language-school.io

    Using the different verb tenses correctly is one of the steps towards becoming fluent in English language. This table is aimed to help students to differentiate them.
