    very good,

    which one do English people say?



    I am not a native speaker.
    Usually, we think sentence is better.

    Re: one of my main duties was to produce / the production of

    Native speakers might say either. Some prefer to use a verb (to produce) in such cases, feeling that the noun (production) is too stodgy, but I wouldn't worry about that if I were you. Say/write whichever one you prefer.
