    Re: Are my sentences correct?

    Welcome to the forum.

    1. Were you trying to practise a particular aspect of English with these sentences?
    2. You will find, the longer you use the forum, that shorter questions attract more responses. Try to stick to four or five sentences at the most in one thread. I have dealt with your first five below:

    1. Sometimes we have disagreements but they don’t last long.
    2. Nowadays, more and more school-leavers tend to get education are educated in a foreign country abroad and the quantity number is constantly increasing.

    или are tending? The word in blue is not in English so I can't deal with this part.

    3. Firstly, it caused by the prestige value and the high quality of teaching overseas.
    This sentence is not grammatical and I'm not sure what you're trying to say. Can you try to write it again using different words?

    4. Thirdly, if it’s one of the in an English-speaking countries country, you can improve your language skills.

    5. I can say that In my view/opinion, studying abroad gives you more possibilities opportunities to get a well-paid job and more profound a deeper knowledge (of what?); that’s why, if I had a possibility the chance, I would go to study abroad.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Tap the smiley-face icon in the editor, then scroll down in the dialog that opens until you find it.

    I hand-type it and the X though. Type : tick : without spaces for and : cross : for .
