Unit 5 Story (Practice Makes Perfect)

In the Name of God

Name: Reza Takhshid
Class: Reading & Comprehension 1
Assignment: Story of Unit 5 vocabulary

writing an Original piece in a second language is a very hard and Complicated task to do, if you are a novice writer. Your knowledge of vocabulary, collocations or grammar might not suffice, for your writing to sound genuine.
You are most likely to digress a lot from your main idea or make mistakes, galore. it is very important not to be impatient, I’m sure many people concur. You must show your work to many people and ask them to point out your mistakes. Do not be fragile as many people may be very harsh on you and they would make no effort in order to mitigate the pain of being an amateur writer. Study and practice at every chance you get, because “practice makes perfect”.

    Nothing worth mentioning I guess, Just this long sentence:

    “Do not be fragile as many people may be very harsh on you and they would make no effort in order to mitigate the pain of being an amateur writer” needs more punctuations, just to facilitate better reading : )

    🙂

    Instead of repeating “many people” you could have used some variations…

    I’m sure the “majority of people” concur to this.You must show your work to many people and ask them to point out your mistakes. Do not be fragile as many “of them” be very harsh on you and they would make no effort in order to mitigate the pain of being an amateur write.

    It may sound a little better, just my two cents…: ) lol
    or you could repeat many people many more, or not, or don’t use many people at all or ^%^% 😀

    that’s true,
    I should pay a little more attention to these sorts of things. (punctuation and repetition and such)

    I’m really enjoying this!
    thank you very much.

    nice however I prefer
    -FRAIL instead of FRAGILE

    for MITIGATE :
    -ALLEVIATE (lessening the hardship of unpleasant situation and make it less severe to bear)

    or ABATE (-gradually lessening,- or decreasing the intensity, over strength, extra amount or rate, excessive degree of something)[FML]

    (you can search for some examples of appropriate usage of the words)
