    As I waited for the appointment

    Would you please correct the mistakes in my sentences?

    As I waited for the appointment, a bearish-looking man came inside and sat on a chair, which seemed too small for him. He picked a glossy magazine from the table with his large hands and gave a deep yawn, which drew everyone's attention to him.

    See above. I've left "bearish-looking" because, even though I don't like it, it's quite evocative. I would probably say "a tall, hairy man"!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I'd say 'bearlike'.
