    I know that the way I write needs to be improved but if you took under consideration that I'm not a native speaker would the mark still be 11 ?

    Well you're right, it depends on the context, level of difficulty for the students, the exact nature of the assignment given, and so on.

    But some of your errors are fundamental: run-on sentences, for instance, are far more serious in English than in Arabic, in which they are seen as poetic.
