That's even worse than a comma splice if there had been a comma after 'informative'.

You have two distinct ideas there. They belong in two sentences.

Regarding sentence or class: please choose one noun and write your sentence(s) with it. If you want to compare two, write one sentence with each one.

I suggest that in future, unless you are quoting someone else's words, you stop enclosing the entire sentences you are querying in quotation marks. This will make it easier for you to make the individual words you are querying stand out from the rest of the sentence. Can you see how the way I have written it below would be easier for us to read?

This "session" or "class" is very informative. It's worth attending.

It is clear that the two sentences incorporate what you are trying to say but that the words you are trying to choose between are "session" and "class".

Is that your attempt to follow my suggestion in post #5?

Did you even read post #2?

Tufguy, I think you need a couple of days' rest. Your recent posts have been rather poor and you have been failing to read/understand/follow our advice in multiple posts.

No, I did read what you have written. But I thought that you meant that I needed not to enclose the whole sentence in quotation mark, if I was using two words together, that we needed to choose in between. Like "session" and "class".

That's wrong. It's still a comma splice.

It should be two sentences.

Thanks for writing separate texts for each of the two words you're considering. Now you need to divide each of your texts into two sentences. They contain comma splices. Google comma splice and read about what they are, how to recognize one, and how to correct them.

NOT A TEACHER

Hello, Tufguy:

The teachers have already given you the answer. I only wanted to add a few thoughts.

1. If you are writing for Americans, it might be better to stick with the word "class." The word "session" is often used to refer to a particular period of academic time, e.g., "I will be attending summer session this year. I plan to take two classes." The word "session" could also be used to refer to when the class is being given: "I wanted to attend the morning session of Algebra 2a, but it was all filled up. So I have to attend the afternoon session [of Algebra 2a]."

2. I think that one sentence would be much smoother and maybe more effective: "This class is very informative, so it's worth attending." / "It's worth attending this class because it's very informative."

3. Sometimes people write two sentences because they want to be more emphatic ("dramatic"): "This class is boring. It's not worth attending."

Thank you for the advice. I didn't know it was an error.

This "session" or "class" is very informative. It's worth attending. (Is it correct now?)
