    Hi,

    I am in the process of learning new words. I made up my own sentences with the words i have learnt. So, please suggest if there are any corrections in the following sentences.

    1. Amy dissuaded her daughter from getting into swimming pool without an instructor, as she being a novice swimmer.

    2. When i saw my friend searching for my house on the street, i beckoned her from my apartment window.

    3. All the students in the class gawked at Anna, when she entered the class room showing off her new hair style.
