Desert 83

Each of the attacking warriors held one or two javelins. This complicated our already unenviable situation. The most important thing at that moment was - without stopping throwing stones, choose the right moment for a counterattack. If you jump out too early - you could fall under the hail of thrown javelins. If you don’t have time to jump out - they will cut you down or pierce you with the same javelin right in the trench.

Well done Oleks.  Because of all your practice, your grasp of complex sentences is now really very good.  Just a couple of notes below.  The audio was good.

Each of the attacking warriors held one or two javelins. This complicated our already unenviable situation. The most important thing at that moment was - without stopping throwing stones, - choose the right moment for a counterattack. If you jumped out too early, you could fall under the hail of thrown javelins. If you don didn’t have time to jump out - they will would cut you down or pierce you with the same javelin right in the trench.

Hi Oleks,

What a brutal situation to find yourself in! Are your experienced, highly skilled archers managing to kill these warriors?

Here is just one observation.

  • The most important thing at that moment was - without stopping throwing stones, choose the right moment for a counterattack - The most important thing at that moment was - without stopping throwing stones, choosing the right moment for a counterattack (the verb "choose" needs to be in the present continuous form to maintain the consistency of the sentence)

Each of the attacking warriors held one or two javelins. This complicated our already unenviable situation. The most important thing at that moment was - without stopping throwing stones - (either use hypens or commas for this sentence, not both) choose the right moment for a counterattack. If you jump out too early(use of a comma is probably better here) you could fall under the hail of thrown javelins. If you don’t have time to jump out(same here, best to use comma) they will cut you down or pierce you with the same javelin right in the trench.
