    long on the Hebrew language, short on marketing

    I am long on the Hebrew language, yet short on marketing.

    Is this sentence correct? The intended meaning is I am good at speaking Hebrew, but not good at marketing.
    I am a fleeting visitor on this fragile Earth.

    It's an odd choice of things to link- the logic behind the connection escapes me.

    Re: long on the Hebrew language, short on marketing

    I agree with Tdol. I would expect a clear connection between the "long on" and "short on" parts.

    I'm learning Hebrew. It's going quite well. I'm long on vocabulary but short on grammar.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
