    The comma splice is the only thing actually wrong.
    The use of passive makes it unnatural.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I would suggest "difficult" instead of "hard".
