    Re: Rewrite the following sentence

    Yeah, actually -- I'm pretty sure you didn't ask. You commanded us. Ordered us. Told us to watch our spelling. But I'm pretty sure there was no "asking."

    Despite your rude approach, I wlll give you this hint: A cleft sentence starts with "It."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I assume that beginning remarks were part of the assignment from the teacher.

    Re: Rewrite the following sentence

    I assume so too, but I also assume the people should be able to understand basic politeness. The poster could check OUR spelling before delivering our work as his own to his teacher and omit that phrase from his commands to us.

    Simply adding a "please" to the original post would have made world of difference.
