1. ## distance betwen buildings

WIll you please correc the following sentences if you find any mistakes?

( advantages of a small univerity)

A small university has a compact or small campus. That means, the distance betweening the buildings are more likely to be close than that at a big university. Therefore, students who attend a small university can save time becuase the amount of time which takes to move from one class to another class will be samll.

That means, the distance betweening the buildings are more likely to be close than that at a big university.

"Betweening" isn't a word. It's the distance between buildings.

Either "the distances between the buildings are more likely to be small" or "the buildings are more likely to be close together."

There is no need for the comma.

Therefore, students who attend a small university can save time becuase the amount of time which takes to move from one class to another class will be samll.

If you spell "because" and "small" correctly the sentence is OK if you add "it" between "which" and "takes."

I do not agree with the theme at all. "Small university" usually refers to the number of students enrolled, not the geographic size. A small university may have a very large campus.

I also don't know that the amount of time saved between classes is significant.

I agree with everything else that you said, so I left it out of the quote.

In terms of "saving time between classes", my guess is it's only important in terms of having two classes in a row - one finishing at 10:00 and the next beginning at around the same time in a different building: if the distance between buildings is smaller, you are less likely to be late for the second class.

When I went to college, they gave enough time from the end of one class till the beginning of the next to get where you needed. That was ten minutes at my school. At a larger school, it might be 15 minutes.

"You are less likely to be late to your next class" is not the same as "you will save time." The original makes it sound like somehow it is more "time efficient" to attend a small university.
