Hello!!

I have just posted this comment in other thread, but I have come across several doubts while and after writing it. I would really appreciate any help regarding grammatical corrections. Thank you very much in advance!!

Regards, for learningEmotion: smile

"I am more than surprised, but also kind of delighted about the news on a new discovery.

American astronomers say they have found a planet at another System(with it´s own star) which meet the necessary requirement to be habitable. There might be water, atmosphere, and good temperature there.Emotion: smile.

They had found this system before and studied two other planets. But there were serious doubts about the possibility of their meeting the necessary requirement for holding life. The new planet is between the other two and it seems to be rightly situated for that.

They say there must be millions of planets with those conditions!!!!. And even one of the astronomers says there is one hundred percent of likelyhood that this planet helds some kind of life.

And we know our planet will be uninhabitable some day.... ; are we saved??"

Hi again

Thank you for devoting your time on this post.

I didn´t intend it to be an essay. I understand emoticons are not appropriate in any formal writing though.

I can see what some of my mistakes consist in, but not all.

For example, shouldn´t we ever use a conjunction at the beginning of a phrase?

Maybe I can´t ask for corrections. I thought I could. Sorry if not.

Certainly you can ask for corrections, but I expect a little thinking. If you post your corrected copy, I will be happy to take a look at it again. Conjunctions can occasionally come at the beginning of a sentence, but students usually do it wrong.
I have tried to reply to your post writing a new text, but I can´t correct most of the mistakes because I don´t know where the problems lie. I can´t try to correct the text without any hint.

Anyway, thank you for your time, Mister Micawber . Maybe, when my English gets better or I feel I am able to correct those mistakes I will try to write the same text again. Actually it could be a good idea.
