Hey Sophie!

Here are the corrections for your sentence. The sentence is very good by the way! Just a few tiny mistakes. :D


Thank you @AustinPark for this amazing workshop.

  • Instead of saying "this", you can say "the" (this isn't necessary, but it sounds better).

(A workshop is this. Is that what you meant?)


learning from you was really fun

  • Always capitalize the first letter of a sentence.
  • Normally, just before you write "and", put a comma(,).

So the sentence would be:

Learning from you was really fun,


and i Hope i‘m able to take some of your classes in Korea Next Year too!

  • "I" (Ich) is always capitalized in English.
  • "Hope" doesn't have to be capitalized, unless it is at the start of a sentence.
  • Instead of "I'm able", you can say "I will be able".
  • "Next Year" doesn't have to be capitalized either.

So the corrected sentence would be:

and I hope I‘m able (or "will be able") to take some of your classes in Korea next year too!

(You can put a comma after the word "year" if you want to. You don't have to, but the sentence looks better that way.)


i still have to improve so much and

  • "i" should be capitalized, so it becomes "I"
  • There has to come a comma (,) after the "and".

The corrected sentence would be:

I still have to improve so much, and


get to know (find) my individual style, but

  • In this sentence "find" would be the best
  • Always put a comma (,) after the word "but". So the sentence would be:

find my individual style, but


i was trying my best to do a good Job. Thanks ! ☺️

  • " should be capitalized
  • "Job" shouldn't be capitalized, unless it is at the start of a sentence
  • You do not normally put a space between a word and a sign in English, though it's not uncommon to do it.

The corrected sentence would be:

I was trying my best to do a good job. Thanks! ☺️


The whole corrected sentence would be:

Thank you @AustinPark for this (or "the") amazing workshop. Learning from you was really fun, and I hope I‘m able (or "will be able") to take some of your classes in Korea next year, too! I still have to improve so much, and find my individual style, but I was trying my best to do a good job. Thanks! ☺️


Sehr gut!

By the way, I'm learning German, so it's great that you speak German and are learning English, and I speak English and am learning German. :) AP4418

Have a great day! (How do you say "Have a great day" in German?)

oh thank you sooooo much! yes i didn't give much attention to capitalization, cause my phone is doing it automatically. so everything is capitalized because of german ^^. oh that's funny haha, but german is much harder to learn i guess xD. You can ask me anytime if you want to know someting. Have a great day - Hab einen guten/schönen Tag :)

Gern geschehen!

Deutsche Sprache, schwere Sprache
Englische Sprache, nicht so schwere Sprache, oder? ;P

By the way, I made a small edit in my comment where I spoke about the sentence "i was trying my best to do a good Job. Thanks ! ☺️".

The edit is this:

  • "Job" shouldn't be capitalized, unless it is at the start of a sentence

It was great learning with you! If you have more questions, you can ask them in this post, because I'll be following this post. Good luck with English. :D

Hab einen schönen Tag! :)

I would make different changes. Very minor.

  1. „this workshop” implies to me that it is currently happening, if you are talking about a learning session. If you are talking about a garage it is fine. “The workshop” implies that it was past tense.

  2. Other than capitalizations, I would use this sentence the only change I would make is to the “I’m”. To me “i’m“ is the state you are currently in. “I am tired” “I am running”. I know it is used in other contexts, but it feels forced or wrong a lot.

Instead “i would like to” for if you will actually be in NK next year, or “ I hope I can” if you are not sure if you will be there. The difference between these two are subtle, and probably personal preference.

I personally think the punctuation is fine without here.

  1. “To improve so much” tells me you aren’t very good at what you are talking about. “So much to improve” says you have identified areas you can do better in and want to improve them.

Know is the correct word.

A comma after “style”.

  1. I was taught to use commas with conjunctions almost exactly the same way as in German. I have no Problem with you not using commas at the “ands”. I never see them in the legal employment contracts I negotiate unless there is a list of items, and then it is 50/50 on usage.

Hello Sophie,

Your text:

Hello, can sb please correct the Text I wrote? Thank you ! ☺️

Everything is perfect, the only thing is that you do not have to capitalize the T in "text". So:

Is there anything else you want corrected? :D AP4418
