    Default I said random words in the local language and see if I can get a word right.

    1) My teacher speaks too fast that what she says become incomprehensible due to distortion.
    2) I said random words in the local language and see if some/any of the words matches the local words.
    3) I said random words in the local language and see if I can get a word right.


    Hope somebody can correct the above sentences for me. Thank you.

    #1 - Change "too" to a different word.
    #2 and #3 - The tense in the first half of each sentence doesn't match the tense in the second half.

    Try all three of them again.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
