    2. ‎Today, I want to talk about the relationship between China and Taiwan. Taiwan is a region strongly influenced by history. Taiwan has its own government and national flag so we don't know whether Taiwan belongs to China or not, even now. Chinese government said Taiwan is part their country but Taiwan once said, we became independent from China. They both speak the same language, Chinese. Although my roommates told me we have a different accent. The point I've realized here is that they don't try to get to know each other. Chinese make Chinese groups and Taiwanese make Taiwanese groups. But they both are kind toward Japanese especially the Taiwanese, I feel they like Japanese culture so they know a lot of Japanese songs or anime. One thing my mother told me which surprised me is that in world history class, the professor said Taiwan is a kind of independent country, then students from China argued with him about this problem.

    2. There are some sentences that are grammatically correct but do not make sense, some sentences that make sense but do not flow with the overall meaning as a whole (unless they are meant to be separate sentences from each other) and some sentences that are grammatically incorrect. I don't like the word "small happiness." - This is a good sentence but the following sentence contradicts the previous. But we can feel pleasure in something not important. Taking pleasure in small, seemingly unimportant things is the definition of small happiness. Using the word 'but' is used to say the opposite or contradictory. You have used it to progress your previous statement which is incorrect use of the that word, disrupting the meaning and flow of the passage, confusing the reader as to what you may be trying to say. The harmony which consists of incongruity and chance that I found on one bus window seat. This is a incomplete sentence. it doesn't make sense. It is a fragmented sentence- it's missing something. You need to think what. you are trying to day and rephrase this sentence. A fat dog in a Santa suit out of date and held in his owner's arms - the 'out of date' doesn't make sense unless you mean the dog was out on a date with its owner. Out of date means something that has expired, usually food that has gone bad and is no longer good to eat. The flow of the sentence is unnatural. Consider - a fat dog in a Santa's suit was out on a date, resting in their owner's arms. Though a dog out on a date is uncommon, this sentence retains your initial meaning ( if that was what we're trying to say), makes sense and is grammatically correct. the nameless flags fluttering in the wind and the clouds that pass fast above them. - this sentence makes sense but there are a few grammatical errors. Also the two sentences do not link so it sounds unnatural. Consider - the nameless flags were fluttering in the wind below the clouds that passed fast above them or the nameless flags fluttered in the wind below the clouds that passed fast above them. Boys ran through the street happily with a soccer ball. - This is a good sentence but you could make is better by saying The boys ran through the street happily playing with a soccer ball Someone waiting for someone else with a cake box in her one hand. - change the end of the sentence to either in their right/left hand or in their hands. a Also add was or is after the first someone- someone is waiting for / someone was waiting for.... And lovely greentrees. - You can omit the 'and' as it links to not previous sentence. Lovely green trees is a statement more than a full sentence but it is correct
