    Arrow Make change

    Hello All
    Could you please tell me the following sentence is correct?

    "The most important changes that I have been making is to learn how to adapt to a new and difficult situation easily"

    If not how can we say that?


    I have a another question as well.
    When my English teacher ask me to write an essay every night I have no idea even on my own native language so I obviously couldn't write essay on English because I have no information about topic for example: "What changes do you need to succeed in the near and distance future?"
    My teacher say me you should google different topic every topic for 6 months to improve your input to able to put your ideas on paper.
    Do you think it is a good idea?
    Do you have any suggestion to increase my inputs?

    Thanks.

    Yes, you can "make" changes. You need to correct your subject-verb agreement. "The most important change is..."

    Re: Make change

    Can we say: "that I've been making is learn how to adapt..."?
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Not a teacher nor a native speaker.

    Re: Make change

    No. "Learning how to adapt" is ok.

    Please create a new thread for this question.
    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.
