Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
here I go:

It is not from truth but from despair that Comedy is an escape.

The second one (no idea)

Colleges and universities after school are hoped to go on.

You have to fight your own corner to get what you want.

This is not a very good exercise for students-- there are no good possible answers.

Comedy is an escape, not from truth but from despair
It is not..

It is not from truth but from despair that Comedy is an escape.-- OK, but unavoidably awkward.

If I had to draw a picture of a person of Comedy, it is so I should like to draw i.
I.....
The second one (no idea)-- The original makes no sense as written. Please check the original text.

Most of them hope to go on to colleges and universities after school.
Colleges......
Colleges and universities after school are hoped to go on.
-- No, this is not good structure. To produce a rough equivalent, you need a quite different sentence: Colleges and universities are their goals after school.

If you don't fight your own corner, you've had it.
You have to............
You have to fight your own corner to get what you want.
-- Again, the original makes little sense as written; does the original read 'in your own corner'? In any case, your re-write is not the same; it introduces a different idea. Something like this: You have to fight in your own corner in order to win.
Thanks a lot. I agree with you; this is not a good exercise for studentes. I made a mistake when I rewrote the second sentence. It should be read like this: If I had to draw a picture of a person of Comedy, it is so I should like to draw IT.

as for the last one, I rewrote it from the original and for me, it makes no sense at all.

anyway, thanks for everything.
