    Cool A few sentences

    Hi, all: is this text correct?

    I find such kind of lectures boring. You just sit, try to listen, fall asleep, and, finally, wake up being tugged by the sleeve by this poor guy trying to fill your head with some nonsense. You look up and see the guy pointing at you with his dirty finger. "People like you," you can hear the yell from his mounth, "make me hate these lectures! Get out of here, get out!" So, you get up and go to the park to figure out why you went to the lecture at all, instead of coming to the park an hour or so ago.

    Thanks & Best,
    Marcin

    such kind of lectures- such lectures
    However, 'lectrures like this' might work better unless you are thrown out on a regular basis.

    Thanks, tdol. But, you didn't like it because it wasn't correct or because it was too informal or something?

    Best,

    No, it just sounded like a regular occurence, while the narrative suggested a single occurence.
