    Word "dazzle"

    I have tried to use "dazzle" in my sentence. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    Wherever Anna went she dazzled people with her beauty and intelligence.

    "Dazzle" is fine, but you needed some punctuation.

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

    teecher,

    I looked at my sentence for a while when I wrote it, asking myself if I needed a comma, and then decided that maybe I could do without it, but now I understand I was wrong. Thank you for pointing out my mistake.

    I'd use the comma too.

    1. Wherever I am, I will praise him.
    2. I will praise him wherever I am.

    I think a comma is needed in 1 but not in 2.
    I am not a teacher.
