Also, people are designed in such a way that even if they are lenient to their texts, they will try to find mistakes in the writing of someone else. In any case, they will consider someone else's essays more meticulously, thus moving into the camp of grammar lovers. Therefore, not caring about the literacy of the text, the author risks losing a large part of the readers.

Hi Oleks,

I have met many "grammar lovers" and you're right - they seem to care more about correct grammar than the actual content of the text. Still, good grammar and meticulously checking a text before publishing it is extremely important for the reasons you point out!

I cannot think of any suggestions/corrections to help you improve this extract! Both your writing and speaking skills in it are perfect smiley
