    similarities between Iran and India

    I was wondering if someone could proofread this paragraph for any mistakes.

    There are certain similarities between Iran and India. Although being separated geographically by a few countries and even more kilometers, the countries have actually many things/much in common. If cuisine is taken as an example of the shared aspect of culture between those countries, Indianís food is believed to be somewhat like Persianís in that it has borrowed some styles, spices and recipes from Iranianís and has in turn influenced Persian food. Rice is also considered to be a major ingredient for both Iranian and Indian dishes. Correspondingly/In the same way, in terms of religious beliefs, worshiping the sun and holiness of fire dating long back in history were and still are customary to these countries. However, such practices are common among a minority group of the Iranian called Zoroastrians, because the vast majority of people living Iran believe in God and are Muslim and Islam is regarded as their main religion, as well. They also share some linguistic and lexical similarities. Sanskrit is the language of religion for the followers of Vedic religion in India, and Avesta is its counterpart for the ancient Iranians. These two languages are very similar in terms of their terminology and phonetics. The rhythm and styles of writing poems in these two languages are so much similar that those in Avestan language can be converted to Vedic using the phonetic rules.


    Thanks in advance.

    Then, why aren't you practising writing full essays instead of squashing your ideas into single paragraphs like that? A proper essay should have an introduction, some body paragraphs and a conclusion. Take a look at the following link.

    Actually, I lack ideas, when it comes to write full essays. These days, I am working on my vocabulary, grammars and sentence structures. Everyday, I memorize 15-20 sentences and 30-40 vocabulary. You know, when I read a passage, I look up new and formal vocabulary from dictionaries, make sentences, and then memorize them. After one month, I try to write full essay.

    Thanks for the link above. It'll be helpful.

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