    Sentences I'm Not Sure About

    I wrote a note for my teacher but I'm not sure what I wrote is fully correct.

    "There is no teacher quite as special as you are and you, who go above and beyond to be the best teacher that anyone can be, whose words of wisdom will be forever echoed in my ear whenever I go, who love and care with all her heart, who leave loving memories of life which will be truly remembered and who touch the soul, will be forever cherished by me who loves you dearly."

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Sentences I'm Not Sure About

    As you have also posted the same text in another forum, our members may decide to wait and see if anybody over there answers and saves us the trouble.

    As teechar told you in an earlier thread:


    Please do not post the same question simultaneously to more than one forum. Doing so wastes our valuable time. Instead, post your question to one forum and wait for replies. If you're not satisfied with those replies, you can try another forum, but please indicate in your thread that you've already asked the same question elsewhere (provide a link), and outline why you were not satisfied with the answers you received already.

    Okay. My intent is not to waste your time, I'm sorry for the inconvenience. I've been waiting for hours to get an answer there since I haven't got an answer yet I posted it here and couldn't delete it from there.

    Re: Sentences I'm Not Sure About

    Part of the problem is that you ran four or five sentences into one, which makes it hard to read. (That seems to be a habit with you.)

    That might be part of the problem. Everyone on these forums is a volunteer, doing it in their own free time. You need to be more patient - waiting "hours" just isn't enough. Give it a couple of days.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I believe in the KISS method. Perhaps:

    You are very special -- the best teacher ever!

    Of course, you can add something to that.

    Your sentences will have more punch if you keep them short and sweet.
