Thank you very much! I would like you to check these few more statements, too.

1) Summarise briefly (or briefly summarise) the history of England from the prehistory (or from its prehistoric inhabitants) to the Anglo-Saxon invasion (or to the Anglo-Saxon invaders)
2)His cousin suggested he should apply (he apply is also correct?) for a job at his agency, he accepted and was eventually taken on (?)
3) He believes that in his new job a lot of the writing is like writing poetry but the work environment is completely different.
4) Actually, it is more competitive and sometimes there is quite a lot of jealousy and resentment, especially if you are successful.ù

Thank you a lot

  • English -

    1) Summarise briefly (or briefly summarise) the history of England from the prehistory (or from its prehistoric inhabitants) to the Anglo-Saxon invasion (or to the Anglo-Saxon invaders)

    Summarise = summarize. You could say it either way. I prefer the Briefly summarize....: Briefly summarize the history of England from its prehistoric inhabitants to the Anglo-saxon invasion.


    2)His cousin suggested he should apply (he apply is also correct?) for a job at his agency, he accepted and was eventually taken on (?)

    His cousin suggested that he should apply for a job at his agency. He accepted this and was taken in by them.

    3) He believes that in his new job a lot of the writing is like writing poetry but the work environment is completely different.

    He belives that in his new job there is a lot of writing which looks similar to poetry, but the work envronment is completely different.



    4) Actually, it is more competitive and sometimes there is quite a lot of jealousy and resentment, especially if you are successful.ù

    This sentence you may want to change a bit.

  • English -

    you could add one more thing to this sentence:

    His cousin suggested that he should apply for a job at his agency. He accepted this and was taken in by them.

    OR

    His cousin suggested to him, that he should go and apply for a job at his agency. He accepted this and was taken in by them.
