    Default please look at this expression!

    I am writing a letter of recommendation and I would like to know if this expression is correct

    '' The excellent understanding and reasoning John consistently exhibited impressed me immediately''


    Is this correct because ms word gives it a an error?

    thanks!

    You didn't say what Word was complaining about, but don't consider Word infallible.

    I would choose something other than "immediately." It seems to conflict with your description of his behavior being "consistently exhibited."
