    I am not sure
    it would be if this will work or not, but I want to send the essay. Actually it is not for a writing skill, it is what I speak for speaking questions (I don't know what you mean by this) but I write have written it and I want your help to correct it.

    in I have one minute to talk about my best favourite place for rest:

    "I am living in a dormitory far from my home and my parents. When I want to rest and specialy especially when I want to talk about my problems, I go to Goa. Inside my mother's hung (do you mean some kind of house?) is the best place for me to rest, and relax to and talk about my problems. After that, we go out for a walk, it does not important matter where, when and or for how much time long we want to walk, we just go out to relax."

    I Please note again that actually it is a lecture for speaking, not a passage of writing.

    Please correct my speaking the passage and all the rest of this post.

    Thank you so much.


    Please see my amendments marked above. I have amended capitalisation and punctuation even though the piece is to be spoken, so that you can note how to do them correctly when writing.

    The punctuation will also help when you read it aloud. When there is a comma, you pause very briefly. This will help your audience to follow what you say and also give you a chance to breathe.

    Yes, I understood that you have to give a speech about "My favourite place to rest".

    It's fine to write a speech down for us to check.

    Ah, your mother's "hug". You wrote "hung" the first time which made no sense.

    In that case, I would use "In my mother's arms is the best place for me to rest".
