My first job was teaching in elementary school. I was still studying, but I replaced another teacher a few days. My students were young children, and I told them a little story about a sheep. Their eyes so wide and bright as they listened to me convinced me to be a teacher forever. I spent my first payment on makeup and shoes, I remember it. It has some difficulties, but I love my job. I also teach music and direct a children's orchestra.

My first job was at an internet store. The store sold clothes and I taked pictures and published the products. I earned $500 for part time labor and spend this in different things for me because I lived with my parents and didn’t have main liabilities. The job was an offer of my sister’s friend and was very easy find it.

Scholar announced that his will be his successor on tv channel. When he announced, he preached his to persist in following rules of Sultanat and warned him about taking back successorship if he would bring a slight change even for a moment.

Please correct if there is something gramatically wrong in this paragraph?

Hello Muhammad Erad

If you'd like to ask us a specific question about a specific word or short phrase, then please feel free, but otherwise I'm afraid we can't help you with this kind of proofreading.

O Lord, supplications are mentioned in book accept those in our favour!
is it correct? If not then guide me please.

Hello Muhammad Erad

I'm afraid that I'm not sure what this prayer is meant to communicate, but if I do, I would recommend 'O Lord, supplications are mentioned in the book; accept them in our favour'.

Does that look right to you?

Hello sir! 'He is left by brilliant 13 books' Is it correct? Basically I want to say that they (books) are brilliant and writer had died long ago.

Hi Muhammad Erad

You're right in thinking that the verb 'leave' can be used to communicate this idea, but here you need to use it in the active voice to say what you want to: 'He left (us) 13 brilliant books.' I put the word 'us' in there, as usually there is an indirect object in this kind of construction.

Does that make sense?

All the best

I have got my first job in 2013. It was a teaching job in a technical high school and I was recommended to that job by my friend who was my former classmate. Because the school was new, I could teach all technical course in two classes. It is was a good job in terms of working conditions but very difficult to teach 8 subjects including reports and exercises. All the money I earned from there I spent them in my next studies.

Hello sir, what is the difference between cemetery and graveyard? I want details from religious point of view.
