Hi Jess,

The way I work with my face-to-face...

Here I am, talking about rudeness again.

 

If you speak tons of languages and have managed to find a way to be as rude as possible when speaking each one of them, what is the point? 

Wouldn't it be better just to choose silence and spare as all? 

How can we survive as a species if we keep being mean to each other?

I keep telling that to myself in order to turn myself into what I consider a respectful person.

Well written and thoughtful and I agree with your sentiments! Almost perfect. The only thing I would change is the phrase "spare as all". It should be "spare us all". Well done and keep writing!

Thank you, Ros. I've been thinking a lot about this topic lately. I didn't noticed that I've written "as" instead of "us".

Excellent piece of writing Natali. As Ros pointed out it is virtually perfect, apart from that one minor mistake.

Personally I would change Wouldn't it be better just to choose silence to Wouldn't it be better just to choose to be silent / choose to remain silent.   However, nothing is wrong with writing it the way you did. Just a matter of opinion.

I'm really looking forward to your next piece of writing smiley

Hi Natali!

This is great! The only thing is the us/as:

spare as all - spare US all

Apart from that, everything looks great! 

Well done, keep going! :D
