    all the more reason to

    A Brazilian immigrant I met also told me that the quality of education system is very high and the school system provides an educational environment where elementary school kids can learn four different languages.

    Hi,

    I need your help on two things regarding the above.

    Firstly, does the sentence look OK, any grammatical errors ?

    Second, I am trying to add a clause at the end which means something like "and that made me even more want to live there". Can I just use that or would there be more native-like wordings?

    If I want to use the idiomatic expression "all the more reason to" to convey the meaning, how can I fit that into this sentence?

    Thanks

    Re: all the more reason to

    A Brazilian immigrant I met also told me that the quality of (the, their?) education system is very high, and the school system provides an educational environment where elementary students can learn four different languages. Hearing this gave me all the more reason to want to live and work there.
