    Default Is it correct?

    Hello teachers

    Could you please correct the following sentenses if they are wrong or if they sound not too good:

    This paper addresses the quality of the textbook dialogues in the foreign language classroom. It draws on using appropriate discourse markers so as to produce natural-sounding interactions.

    Many thanks!
