    a tenth of it

    "I tell my fellow classmates every day: it's no use studying this grammar so hard if you don't practice your listening/speaking. You won't even use a tenth of it, probably. The English you will find out there is far more complicated!"

    hi,
    is this sentence ok?
    thanks.

    I would insert "probably" in front of "won't" for a smoother read. This is good.
