I had to write a summary (~150 words) for english on the first chapter of Pride and Prejudice. Could someone please check it for me and tell me what's good/bad?

'Pride and Prejudice' commences with a conservation between Mr. and Mrs.Bennet. Mrs.Bennet has heard, from and acquaintance; one Mrs.Long, that Netherfield Park, a local mansion, is let at last. Mr.Bingley, a young man with large fortune, is the new tenant of Netherfield Park. She reveals to her husband her plans; she hopes for Mr.Bingley to be a potential husband for one of their daughters. She insists he must visit Mr.Bingley as soon as he comes otherwise it will be unacceptable for her and their daughters to visit. Mr.Bennet declines. Mrs.Bennet tries to make him reconsider but is unsuccessful; he provokes her and tells her he'll send a few lines of assurance of his consent to marrying whichever daughter. Mrs.Bennet is displeased with him and complains about her suffrances. Mr.Bennet, jokingly, says he'll visit twenty young men, if they come to the neighbourhood.

  2. 'Pride and Prejudice'<~~book titles need to be in italics, not in single or double quotation marks commences<~~Are you trying to imitate old English? Use the word "begins" instead! with a conservation between Mr. and Mrs.Bennet. Mrs.Bennet has heard, from and<~~?? acquaintance; one Mrs.Long, that Netherfield Park, a local mansion, is let at last.<~~Some of this wording is directly from the first chapter, but you haven't put it in quotation marks to indicate that. Please go over your entire summary and make sure that the whole thing is in YOUR OWN WORDS. Then repost and I'll take another look. Mr.Bingley, a young man with large fortune, is the new tenant of Netherfield Park. She reveals to her husband her plans; she hopes for Mr.Bingley to be a potential husband for one of their daughters. She insists he must visit Mr.Bingley as soon as he comes otherwise it will be unacceptable for her and their daughters to visit. Mr.Bennet declines.

    Here are many websites that can teach you how to paraphrase, quote, or summarize correctly so you don't inadvertently plagiarize.
