    Red face Please help me with this sentence~

    I need your help badly, teachers, with this sentence:

    "Differ from class one, class two has better teachers, better teaching and learning environment and better teaching equipment."

    Is there any mistake, and what sentence element is "differ from" in this sentence?

    Thank you so much!

    How about:
    Class Two has better teachers, a better teaching and learning environment and better teaching equipment than Class One.

    Yes, or even "Different from ..."
    But this isn't the most common way of saying that.
    Class one is different / differs from class two, in that it has better teachers, better teaching and learning environment and better teaching equipment."
    Class one is different from class two; it has better teachers, better teaching and learning environment and better teaching equipment."

    You can also use "Differing from ..."
    "Differing from most birds, an emu can't fly."
