Hi Oleks,

I think when we are first introduced to someone, we should make sure that we take the time to write their name down on a piece of paper / look at their social media profile and study how their name is written. It is important for us to make sure that we spell people's names correctly when writing to them.

Again, I know many people who get offended when others misspell their names, so this is precisely why it is so important.

Aliakbar has done a great job of evaluating your written English.

I just have one comment

1. Your pronunciation of the word "consonants."
