    non-metropolitan area's university

    Although he was graduated local university, he was succeed later by effort.
    *Although he graduated from a non-metropolitan area's university, he succeed(made it big or hit it big)later by effort.
    ======================================
    1. Again, how can I express "a university located in non-metropolitan areas" outside of Seoul and its vicinity? In Korea, we distinguish such areas from Seoul by saying "local", which is not adequate in English, I guess.
    2. Are these all the same? Can you suggest better ones?
    1.succeed
    2.made it big
    3.hit it big

    Re: non-metropolitan area's university

    As I write this, keannu, twelve of the first fifteen posts in the Ask a Teacher' forum are from you. Is it perhaps time to stop and give people who are willing/able to respond a chance to do so?

    Again: Put spaces around you parentheses!

    This is wrong: . . . "succeeded(made it big or hit it big)later. . . ."

    This is right: . . . "succeeded (made it big or hit it big) later. . . ."

    Do you see the spaces?

    And again: "Local" is not inadequate. It's wrong. It does not mean "rural." It means "nearby."

    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
