    Default Proof read my easy sentences please

    #1Congratulations on your acceptance to the school. What do you think about studying English as a high school student? Do you have any worry? Do you think it is hard to understand English grammar or increase English vocabulary? No problem. I will do my best for you to make them out. Letís start together with me.

    #2 You may have thought you were a shiny first grader. The year went so quickly. Now you are a second grader. You will be a third grader soon. How was your English study so far? With further effort, letís build a solid foundation within this year for the coming third grade so that you can prepare for the entrance exams with the composure of mind in that grade. Start together!

    Thank you very much Tdol !!

    I can't understand " you may have thought you were a shiny first grader "would wlways be. " What does would always be mean?

    It should be "how were your English studies so far?"
    I have a question. Which is good/best or all of them OK?

    How were your English studies so far?
    How have your English studies been so far?
    How are your English studies going so far?
    How have your English studies been going so far?

    Thank you

    You may have thought you were a shiny first grader- This didn't mean that much to me as the person was a first grader and has moved on. The idea of 'would always be' is that young people often fon't see the chan ges of time that are coming their way.

    How have your English studies been so far?
    How are your English studies going so far?
    How have your English studies been going so far?

    These are all fine, but it would depend on the length of time of the stuies- the second would be for studies that have started fairly recently.

    Thanks Tdol

    It should be "You may have thought you would always be a shiny first grader. But ..."

    I would use "how have your English studies been so far" Because they have studied English for one year.

    The rest of my sentences are OK?
