Jerash

Jerash : it is a city in northern Jordan . The city is the administrative center of the Jerash governorate. It’s located 48 kilometers north of the capital city Amman .Jerash is one of the most preserved Roman architecture sites in the world outside Italy .To this day, the streets are still paved ,the bathrooms, the theaters, plazas, and arches are exceptional . Within the city’s remaining walls, archaeologists have found ruins of settlement on this site for more than 7,500 years .

The height of its prosperity reached during the time of the Romans at the beginning of the third century AD and was prosperous during the Umayyad period, but the Galilee earthquake in 749 had destroyed large areas of it, and the successive earthquakes, the most important of which was the 847 Damascus earthquake, led to additional destruction.

In 1806, the German traveler arrived in Jerash and wrote about the monuments he had seen. This drew the world's attention to it and the travelers began to visit them. The ancient city was unearthed by a series of excavations that began from 1925 to the present day.

Hi Tatyana,

Great text about Jerash. Your text really brings light to this great city that would love to visit. I've included just a few suggestions for your text. Great job!

To this day, the streets are still paved. Even the bathrooms, the theaters, plazas, and arches are exceptional. 

Break up this sentence. The height of its prosperity reached during the time of the Romans at the beginning of the third century AD. It was prosperous during the Umayyad period, but the Galilee earthquake in 749 had destroyed large areas of it. There were successive earthquakes, and the most important of which was the 847 Damascus earthquake, led to additional destruction.

Hi Tatyana,

Jerash looks like an amazing city. I am really interested in Roman history, so I would love to go there. From looking at the pictures, the buildings have been so well preserved. Do many tourists go there? It's funny as I read a lot of articles about historical cities to visit and I've never read an article about Jerash until today smiley

The festival that is held each July sounds fantastic! Would it be best to plan a visit then, do you think?

 

With regards to your English, it is superb. Well done! Here are just some points I would like to make

1. The height of its prosperity reached during the time of the Romans - The height of its prosperity was reached during the time of the Romans

2. The ancient city was unearthed by a series of excavations that began from 1925 to the present day. - The ancient city was unearthed by a series of excavations that began in  1925 and continues today / at this present time

3. Almost all the population are Arabs, the majority of whom are Muslims, with a minority of Christianity, there are ethnicities in very few proportions such as Kurds, Armenians, Circassians. - This sentence needs to be broken up. (The majority of people who live in Jerash are Arab Muslims. Christians are a minority among the population. There are also a very small number of Kurds, Armenians and Circassians. )

I am so glad the surgery went well blush!! Having surgery (of any kind) can be risky so I am so pleased to hear it has helped you.

Your English is incredibly good - you just need to keep practicing!

Oh cool - and how much do these tours cost? In England, some tours can cost a huge amount of money. In some ways they are worth it, as the tour guides teach people so much. However many tourists simply don't have enough money to go on them.

When would you recommend me arranging a trip to Jordan? I love hot and sunny weather, so would you advise me to go in July or August? I love trying different food. Wha is Circassian food like? Tell me about it :-)

Wow! Good job, Tatyana! I have always wanted to visit Jordan, I hope I will be able to do it one day. Are you from Jordan? Tell us more about it.

My fellow editors have mentioned several useful points. I would like to provide some more:

1. Try not to use contractions in writing because they sound informal.

2.  When ending a statement, put the period immediately after the last word and start the next sentence after a space. “…Amman .Jerash…” à “…Amman. Jerash…”

3. The same rule applies when you want to use the comma: :… paved ,the bathrooms…” à “…paved, the bathrooms…”

4. “…and it was prosperous during the Umayyad period…”

5. “…In 1806, a German traveler…”

6. “…and the travelers began to visit the place…

Keep up the good work!
