    There is very little information there, but what is there is OK apart from "writing comprehension". That doesn't make sense. You're either good at comprehension of written English or you're good at writing English, but not a combination worded this way.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    .....and I wouldn't use abbreviations, i.e. "IT".
