    An awkward sentence?

    English teacher

    One of my students wrote this sentence about friendship:
    To me a true friend is someone who always says hallo to you when he/she meets you
    in the street and does not pretend not to see you.
    Isn't it a bit awkward?
    Thank you.

    Isn't it a bit awkward? Not for me, but maybe a comma or two would help.
    Thank you.
