    `Pleasa correct the sentence I made.

    She is as a teacher as a writer.

    I know ”she is as nice as pretty”is correct.

    so in the place where the "nice" or the "pretty" is written, Can I write a noun, such as a teacher or a writer?

    Hello,I'm new here and was looking at some posts.
    I don't know exactly how it works here so I don't know if anyone has answered your question yet.

    I would say 'she is both a teacher and a writer'.You certainly cannot say 'she is as a teacher...'
    Also I would say 'she is as nice as she is pretty'-I prefer it this way.
    I'm not English.I'm Maltese.

    I agree with Queenbu- you can't use as + noun + as + noun. She could be as good a teacher as a writer, though.

    Thank you for your helps.
    I understand English more. Come to think of it, "She is a teacher as well as a writer." I realized I could make this sentence.
    I may have other questions someday,so please teach me again when I have.

    That sentence is fine. When you have more questions, Ryoma, we'll try to answer them.
