- 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.

Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.
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.
