Before editing and proofreading:


Everybody in a working age has to work in the company or offices during the daylight. They come home to enjoy a relaxing evening after finishing all their work at the company. I am not accepting it.

When I got home, I made myself a glass of lemonade. I look for the knife in the drawers of the console table and chop a half a lemon which is stirred with a little sugar, this juice makes my body relax after a tiring day. At the same time I reach for the remote and turn on the TV. to watch a channel which I'm most interested in this season. I watch the broadcast of the local news on TV. It shows the bulletin reporting the rainy season which alerts a big storm accompanied a flood. This channel shows a lot of worm has crawled out underneath the trees two days ago which was a prediction about the flood going on and many of local people tried to grasp and execute it. Because they thought it was a curse for them.

In conclusion, many have their own way of relaxing but for me giving fresh juice and watching the news that is not only relaxing but it also gives me lots of information on weather issues to help me avoid the storm.

Everybody of working age has to work in a company or an office during the daylight. They go home to enjoy a relaxing evening after finishing all their work in a company. I don’t accept that.

When I am home, I make a glass of lemonade myself. I look for the knife in the drawers to chop half a lemon which is stirred with a little sugar. This juice makes my body relax after a tiring day. At the same time, I reach the remote and turn on the TV to watch a channel which I'm most interested in, this season. I watch the broadcast of the local news on TV.

This channel shows a lot of worms that have crawled out underneath the trees two days ago which was a prediction about the flood going on. Many local people tried to grasp and execute them. Because they(people) thought them(worms) were a curse.

In conclusion, many have their own way of relaxing but for me drinking fresh juice and watching the news is not only relaxing, but it also gives me lots of information on weather issues to help me avoid the storm.




Feedback:

We use the determiner  ‘the’ for specific locations, buildings, names,...

 We use a/an for not specific   a book, a newspaper, an orange, an apple


In English, we have state verbs (think, believe,..your opinion) and action verbs

Go/come, play…

We don’t use some of the state verbs in -ing form 

We don’t say, I am believing x, but we say I believe you


Transitive verbs and intransitive verbs (verbs that take an object or not)

When we talk about general truths or habits, we use the present simple instead of the simple past. We usually use the simple past if it’s a true story.
