- 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.

Context is important. Please provide enough for us to be able to deal effectively with your question.
Your thread title should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.
If you just want to know the meaning of a word, try OneLook Dictionary Search first.
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.
