    2. You actually have all that correct - you know exactly what I mean. Rather, I just slightly misunderstood your question and didn’t know the difference between a flap T and a held T since they feel basically the same to me (sorry!) But since I understand now, all those words you listed are pronounced with a held T (abrupt stop of air). You could say “out” with a hard T, though that’s a more British way of saying it (they usually pronounce all T’s as a hard T). Americans say “out” with a held T. Sorry for the confusion!

    2. Hello! I think that this is good paragraph, however, you're a bit rough in some places but it's still understandable! The first thing that I noticed was the use of the word 'prompt'. You did technically use this word correctly (since it does mean to assist or encourage) however since it's a verb it does not fit when it followed by 'take care' (another verb/phrase). The sentence would be fine just as "Even in his greyest moments, she was always there to take care of Christy." The second time you used the word prompt was a little difficult for me to understand. I think what you meant to say was "She was always searching for a way to cheer him up when he was down.". This phrasing is better since you're not using two separate verbs together (such as 'prompt to recall him' which has the verbs prompt and recall). Personal preference, although I think what you wrote is still grammatically correct and makes sense, "... Christy used in order to write about an event he surely will always remember." I do not think the phrase "in order to write about" fits. I think it would be better to say "Christy used to write an even that he will always remember.". I personally think this fits better because in my experience my teachers would always say that " the phrase 'in order to' is redundant when you can just use the word 'to' " in English we only use that phrase if its paired with a negative connotation such as "in order not to" The part of the paragraph where you suddenly used quotations confused me. Specifically the " When he had tried to scribble an "A" using his foot, his mother, "crossed over him and knelt down beside him". " , She also, "held the slate steady for him", when she saw his son prepared to give up." , He "felt her mother's hand on his shoulder". In English we only use quotations to indicate that we are either repeating a phrase that someone has spoke or we are indicating that dialogue is taking place. Also pronoun usage correction! In the phrase "Obviously, she was trying to support his child mentally and physically..." since the mother is a woman and it's still her child (unless you are referencing the child as a man's) the sentence would instead be "Obviously, she was trying to support her child mentally and physically..." . Make sure that the pronouns match as to not confuse the reader, if the pronoun is in reference to someone who has the same pronoun then be sure to clarify. You also used the phrase "not make him feel going through this tough step alone". This isn't an English phrase that I've ever seen personally, I think what would fit better is " to not make him feel like he was going through this alone" or "to not make him feel like he was going through this rough patch alone" is how most English speakers would try to phrase that! You also used appositives a bit wrong! An appositive is structured like your sentence "Even when he, trembling, broke the stick of chalk after only drawing one side of the letter...". Note how you have a phrase and then a comma and then another comma to continue that sentence? That's structured as if it was an appositive. Appositives are a bit strange to learn, even as an English speaker, so hopefully I can explain this decently! In my last sentence I used an appositive structure. What makes it a correct usage of that structure is what is in the middle between the two commas. The middle bit of the sentence (what's in between the two commas) should either add more information or rename the noun at the start of a sentence. Such an example would be "The horned owl, my favorite animal, has unique characteristics.". My original subject was "horned owl" and I renamed it in the the middle of the commas as "my favorite animal" to add more information. I hope I explained this decently. I would rewrite the original sentence as "Even when he broke the stick of chalk after only drawing on side of the letter he had his mother by his side." There isn't a huge need to keep the word 'trembling' I'd also change your last sentence a little bit! "His mother support was essential in order to make him feel confident and then, capable of doing what he wanted. " there is no need to have the word 'then'. 'Then' simply means at a certain time or after/next. The sentence would be fine as "make him feel confident and capable of doing what he wanted." I hope this helped! I'm so sorry it's long! Hopefully I was able to help out and explain some things!
