    confide in

    Please help me make the following paragraph sound natural. Thanks.

    Hi, everybody! My name is Eric. I am a fifteen-year-old boy. I am a Virgo. I am very happy to be one of the members of EGRC. My classmates tell me that I am an energetic and easygoing person. It is because I'm always ready to assist others and take it calmly when something goes wrong. In addition, I am always an understanding listener when my classmates confide in me.

    I find it a little strange that your classmates have to tell you that you're energetic and easy-going. You could say "My classmates say I am energetic ..." or "My classmates tell people that I am energetic ...". I'm sure you already know that you're energetic and easygoing.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
