    Default As a result of...

    My slow progress was due to bad teaching.
    -> As a result of bad teaching, my progress was slow.(1)
    -> As a result of being taught badly, I progressed slowly.(2)
    Are both of these sentences correct? And which one sounds better?
    Thank you for help.

    Both are correct. I would prefer (1) But better would by combining good sounding part from both; as:
    As a result of being taught badly, my progress was slow.(3)
