    Welcome to the forum. You have asked us to correct your sentences. Are you certain that they are incorrect? How do you know? What do you think is wrong with them? Please try to correct them yourself first and then we will look at your attempts.

    I don't know what you mean by "long quotes and short quotes".

    Remember to finish every sentence with the appropriate punctuation mark (one full stop, question mark, exclamation mark).
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Re: Sentences

    Please don't post two completely unconnected requests in one thread. You started this thread with 7 sentences for correction. If you want someone to look at your other piece, you need to start a completely new thread.

    Tzfujimino - did you read the other replies before posting yours? I asked the original poster to try to do the exercise themselves before enlisting our help. I asked what he/she thought was wrong with them. You have now marked in red the problem area of each sentence which means the most difficult part of the exercise has now been done for him/her. That's actually not very helpful.

    Re: Sentences

    I'm sorry.
    I'll delete it.

    P.S. Good luck, AZamakda.
    I've waited for your reply (attempt), but I think I'll have to give up here.
    I'm sorry I haven't been of any help to you.
