    Too much adjectives?

    Dear members,

    Do you think it is too much to say
    "professional world-class environmental non-governmental organizations"?

    Thank you in advance!

    Re: Too much adjectives?

    It's long but it's OK. It will sound less wordy if you end it with "NGOs". Most people know what that stands for.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Too much adjectives?

    Thank you for answering, I am writing an official college application so I try not to use abbreviations.

    Sometimes abbreviations are OK but if you know that the college you are applying to doesn't like them, then don't use them.

    Re: Too much adjectives?

    Thanks, I thought it is a rule not to use abbreviations so thanks for clearing that out!

    I'm no expert on college applications. You haven't said which country you will be making your college application to. That might make a difference.

    Two corrections, missemss:

    'Too many adjectives?'

    'Thanks for clearing that up.'

    Re: Too much adjectives?

    Thanks, the first one is an unforgivable mistake, the second is going to follow me my whole life - I am so bad with phrasal verbs!
