    not only....but also

    My today’s last question: Is the following sentence correct by ignoring the inadvertent spelling errors?

    I believe university education will not only provide me with the ncessary academic skills, but also the valuable opportunity to develope my character to the fullest.

    Will it be better if I change it like this?

    I believe that university education will provide me with not only the necessary academic skills, but also the valuable opportunity to develop my character to the fullest.

    Thank you!

    Your rewrite is a good one, but I don't think it is necessarily better than the original. It is no worse, but I don't think it is any better either. (Perhaps someone will disagree with me.)
