    my sentences that need to be corrected

    Hi there,

    I am trying to use new words as much as I can.

    here is the words,

    -assumption
    -bruise
    -applaud
    -horrify
    -mortified
    -loan
    -flatter

    A: I have an assumption that your bruise must have made by a punch of someone.
    I will applaud you if you tell me the truth.
    B: Sorry, but I was being horrified I might have punched again if I told the facts to you, teacher.

    A: I will tell what happened between you guys to his parent. they will be mortified.

    B: I hope the mortification will come.
    A: so for now, I can loan you my handkerchief. please focus on your study then. you are the one of the best students in our school
    B: Thank you, I'm flattered..

    Re: my sentences that need to be corrected

    here is [are] the words,


    A: I have an [made the] assumption that your bruise must have [ must have been] made by a punch of [punch from] someone.
    I will applaud you if you tell me the truth. [ok]

    B: Sorry, but I was being horrified [I was horrified that] I might have punched again if I told the facts to you [told you the facts], teacher.

    A: I will tell what happened between you guys to his parent. they [They] will be mortified.

    B: I hope the mortification will come. [This is not clear to me. Do you mean, I hope you will be motified to realize what you have done?]

    A: so [So] for now, I can loan you my handkerchief. please [Please] focus on your study [studies] [or ... Please focus on studying] then. you [You] are the one of the best students in our school [.]

    B: Thank you, I'm flattered.. [okay, except that an ellipsis is THREE dots, and then the final punctuation, in this case a period, totalling FOUR dots.][Although, I would also have to ask why an ellipsis in the first place. Perhaps you were just double full-stopping?]
