    Dear Wakish,
    I loved every article you wrote on your website. I am a GP student and really want to be tutored by you.

    I have answered a few of the above questions. Please go through them and suggest me on my English.
    1)After being elected as the President, he did not bother to adhere by his promises.
    Only a long time after did we realize that all the things which Reena bragged about was untrue.
    Depletion of wildlife deserves more attention than it is receiving.
    Public speaking skills is now a cornerstone for many professions.
    It is a high time the world should move to consumption of renewable sources of energy.
    2)outstanding:excellent
    Nanny’s unexpected results in the examinations was not unexpected.
    alarming:shocking
    It is alarming to see the bad behavior of children to street dogs.
    survival:continuation to live
    I owe my survival from the car crash to the brave young man.

    Thanks a lot. I am waiting for your response.

  2. Wakish says:

    Hi Salonika,
    thanks a lot for your response. I’m currently out of time, but I have made the following quick remarks:

    1)
    a) After being elected as the President, he did not bother to adhere by to his promises.

    We always say “adhere to”

    b) Only a long time after did we realize that all the things which Reena bragged about was untrue.

    I’m not too happy with the way you constructed this sentence. An improvement could be: “We took a long time to realize that what Reena bragged about, was infact untrue.” (Try to improve it yourself again 😉 )

    c) Depletion of wildlife deserves more attention than it is receiving.

    This is OK

    d) Public speaking skills is now a cornerstone for many professions.

    I would rather say “Good communication skills is now a cornerstone for many professions.”

    e) It is a high time the world should move to consumption of renewable sources of energy.

    It is high time the world should move to the consumption of renewable sources of energy.

    2)
    i) outstanding:excellent Good description

    Nanny’s unexpected results in the examinations was not unexpected.

    This sentence is not at all good. You have used unexpected twice and this totally ruined the sentence meaning Try to make it again?

    ii) alarming:shocking description ok, but I would “increasing”

    It is alarming to see the bad behavior of children to street dogs.
    sentence good

    iii) survival:continuation to live OK

    I owe my survival from the car crash to the brave young man.
    OK

    Please, try to re-think about the points I made and feel free to post your work again. I would be more than happy to help you although I might take some time to reply at times 😉 And thanks a lot for responding, and hope to see you around more often.

    All the best!

  3. Salonika says:

    Thank you Wakish for your comments. I would definitely keep those points in mind the next time I write.
    Here are some corrections from my previous reply.
    1. As the sentence of “outstanding”, I think I meant to write:
    Nanny’s outstanding results in the examinations were not unexpected.
    2.I didn’t know the meaning of “array” then so now I have used it.
    array:group
    The array of delicacies in the party made my mouth to water.

  4. Wakish says:

    Hi again Salonika,
    Sorry for the delay to get back to you 😉

    For the sentences:

    1. Nanny’s outstanding results in the examinations were not unexpected.

    “not unexpected” is in short “expected” – I would advice you not to use such word constructs.
    Instead you could say: Nanny’s outstanding results in the examinations were very much expected. 😉

    2. array:group definition OK

    The array of delicacies in the party made my mouth to water.

    The use of the word “delicacies” is not really appropriate in this sentence. With that word you meant to say good eating stuffs?

  5. neha says:

    it’s fantastic.

  6. nick says:

    All big companies of the world should adhere to the rules as laid down by the world health Organization so that the toxic wastes that they produced should not harm the people and the environment. Most companies bragged about how much profit they make in a day but forgetting that the toxic gases have been harmed not only human being but depleted the ozone layer at an alarming rate. It is a right for every living being to have a cleaner and pure environment, as it is a cornerstone to healthy life.
