    forming a social consensus.

    The famous person I take a lot of interest in is Oprah Winfrey. When I was a schooler, I used to watch her TV talk show. I enjoyed it. Her talk show has become very successful in the world because she communicates with many people, forming a social consensus.

    Re: forming a social consensus.

    It sounds natural enough, but it doesn't convey any real information.

    You have to put a space after the punctuation at the end of each sentence. Please reply indicating that you've read my advice.

    Re: forming a social consensus.

    I wouldn't say I was a "schooler." When I was in (high, elementary, etc.) school.

    Re: forming a social consensus.

    What about just saying "When I was a student"?
    Is it too vague, not to indicate which level of school you were in?

    I will consider answering further questions from you after you reply to my previous post as I requested.

    Re: forming a social consensus.

    I read all of them, and every time I saw it, I put space in the needed places.

    You missed one. Look at post #1 again!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
