    Could you tell me if these sentences are written corectlly?

    1) You are one with the crowd around you, vibrating to the same euphoric passion

    I don't know if It's correct "vibrating to". I've only seen "vibrating at", but they were talking about frequencies and I think it doesn't apply here.

    2) There has been projects that intended to modify it.

    Again, "intended to" is that correct?

    Thank you

    By the way, do you know a good way to correct my spelling?

    I don't know what the first sentence is supposed to mean.

    Your second sentence needs a plural verb, "have" instead of "has". I would change the verb in the second clause to the passive voice: "that were intended to".

    Re: Could you tell me if these sentences are written corectlly?

    Good pointers.

    In the first sentence I tried to describe that sensation that we experiment when we are in a stadium. When we cheer at unison with the crowd, it's like being one huge person. Sounds strange, but is how we act at sport events in south america. The task was to talk about a building in our city, so I chose a stadium.

    In that case, I would use "vibrating with".

    Salvador.dal, please note that a better title would have been 'You are one with the crowd around you'.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'

    I don't like 'vibrating with' at all. I'd prefer 'caught up in'.

    The stadium might be vibrating with the sound and excitement of all the fans, but the fans aren't vibrating!

    You are in the excited throng, the stadium vibrating with euphoric passion.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
