    Thumbs up Can you help me correct three short sentences? Thank you.

    I can lie on the beach chatting with friends. What’s more, there are many upscale restaurants offering tasty seafood. You know what, I have tasted all the food they provide.

    The main error is your use of a capital letter after a comma (excluding the word "I").

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Just to congratulate you on writing "I can lie ...." Many native speakers would have incorrectly written "lay."

    Also, just thought that you would like to know that here in the United States, there is another popular word for "upscale."

    For example: Tom eats only at high-end restaurants.

    Of course, ordinary people like me cannot afford to stay at luxury/ upscale/ high-end hotels.
