Thank you so much.
Almost throughout 2014, the price of rice from Thailand was less than the price of rice from Vietnam.
(You need to make that really really long sentence into two or three shorter sentences that will be easier for the reader understand.)
Please note that prices go up, and prices go down. Also, while commodities may be either cheaper or more expensive, prices are neither. They are simply higher or lower.
But I have to translate it like that because of the original text (in vietnamese). Is this sentence right?.
Thank again, after you correct my errors, may I cancel this thread. This is my homework, so I scare my teacher can see it and he may tell me off.
The sentence as written is unclear.
You could say:
Rice from Thailand cost less than rice from Vietnam.
(Saying something cost less is the same as saying it was cheaper.)
Well, you don't have that much work left to do, but you should definitely rewrite some of that to make the sentences easier to understand.
You are so kind. I will rewrite . May I cancel this thread. I scare my teacher. ONCE AGAIN, THANK YOU SO MUCH.
You would delete the thread, not cancel it. And there is a one in a million chance that your teacher would ever see it. (How would your teacher know who posted it even if your teacher saw this thread? (Unlikely.) I suggest that you make any necessary changes then post the revised essay right here. Please remember the advice I gave you.
