But I moved to US because iím working in New York and iím staying there. Right now, I am employed as an assistant accountant in the private sector. The reason why I choose to spent my time to continue studying at nothern univercity because of salary. In addition to that I would like to gain and acquire knowledge in some more learning. Before I came here to get a degree, I had just finished study at technology univercity Singapore in 2008. Now Iím in semester 8 from Bachelor Public Management field and maybe in 1 year i will finish my studies.

    "Now Iím in semester 8 from Bachelor Public Management field and maybe in 1 year i will finish my studies."

    I find that the sentence I highlight is grammatically wrong. It should be" in a year's time, I will have finished my study" . Please use the future perfect simple to say that an action will be finished at a specific time in the future. In this case, it does.

    Want to know more detail ?
