- For Teachers
Please help me correct the following paragraph. Thanks!
At the beginning, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Patricia, but don’t call me “Patrick”. I am much smarter and cuter than Patrick. Although my family will move to Hsinchu after I graduate from junior high school, I hope we can still keep in touch in the future.
Allow me to introduce myself. The transition "First" is overused in English and should be avoided whenever possible.
Unless I am missing an intended witticism, I'd like to point out that no-one calls people called Patricia by the name Patrick. Patricia is a girl's name. Patrick is a boy's name. They can both be shortened to Pat, but they are definitely not interchangeable.
Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
