As a result, the reader concludes that if the author cannot even master grammar within the school course, then, most likely, their logic is also not all right. Furthermore, if the author cannot correctly express their thoughts, then they hardly understands the topic well. Why, in this case, read what they wrote?

Hi Oleks,

You are right! It is particularly important for writers to pay close attention to their grammar and spelling. I agree that bad grammar and spelling makes texts confusing and incredibly challenging to read!

Again, another amazing effort! yes Just some minor comments

1. within the school course, - at school ("within the school course" is not grammatically incorrect, it just sounds a bit strange)

2. their logic is also not all right - their logic is also not very good/up to scratch (same here - not a correction, just a suggestion.)
