    general questions...please help

    I am confused with these minor things, could you guys please correct me if they are wrong?

    1. Teachers comment on, listen to and assess students' projects.

    when several intransitive verbs are used together, is it alright to use this way?

    2. A fundamental course in which students learn how to write a basic proposal and a talk series in which invited speakers will give useful presentation to students.

    Any comma missing? is it alright?

    3. This project proposes to generate opportunities for students, and provide professional training for students to implement their knowledge in practice.

    is the comma in red correctly used?



    Many thanks.

    Dear Sir,

    I am the teacher of English, but I am not a native speaker. I see you have not had any replies up to now, so I decided to send you the message with my humble opinion.

    May be it will be of some help to you.

    1. "Teachers comment on, listen to and assess students' projects." – in my view this is quite correct, there is nothing unusual in this sentence, it might sound a bit unnatural to the ear of a native speaker, but might be quite eligible as well

    2. I would rather restate two other sentences to avoid prolixity and make them shorter:

    "The fundamental course is aimed at teaching students to write basic proposals and talks; model presentations given by guest speakers are part of the course"

    3.The right collocation with ‘generate; is ‘generate ideas’, technique, program, excitement, interest, feeling’, ‘opportunities’ does not seem correct here

    I would also rephrase it:

    "The aim of the project is to generate students’ interest, give students the opportunity for professional training, to provide them with substantial practice"

    2. A fundamental course, in which students learn how to write a basic proposal; and a talk series in which invited speakers will give useful presentations to students.

    But for 3, why is a comma needed before "to implement "? I don't really get that point.

    THanks:)

    Re: general questions...please help

    because there is no 'and'. If you use 'and to implement' you will not need a comma

    You are welcome, but you might be better on a psychology forum for that: Objectivism Online Forum -> Psychology and Self Improvement
