    2. “stare” would be to look at something for a while, but not necessarily with a lot of interest. it could be a ‘blank stare’ “gaze” would be to look with some sort of emotion— like love— or it could be completely unfocused. like ‘gaze out the window’ could mean that someone is looking out the window, but they’re lost in thought, so they aren’t focusing on anything in their vision. “glare” is most malicious or mean, and it’s to look at something in anger. if someone were to insult you, you would glare at them, for example. “peer” means you’re paying attention, and you have purpose with your look. if i ‘peer out the window,’ i am actually trying to see what’s outside, rather like staring unfocusing like with “gaze.” more on this — http://wordcategory.blogspot.com/2013/03/difference-between-stare-gaze-glare-peer.html?m=1

    2. I understand the training is to be provided for anyone that will be traveling. The training will be provided by people trained for the job (professional instructors), people who have been trained in travel methods (non-professionals?) and people with experience actually traveling (peers). Maybe the instructors who have been ‘trained’ have no actual experience traveling? ..and the peers have had no training, but have a lot of experience traveling?? I hope this helps you to understand. I agree, it is somewhat confusing. This has been the most challenging answer for me yet on HiNative 😉👍

    2. ​‎I would have never thought that one Saturday **could** be so memorable. Everything happened at Suzie’s party. It took place in a little art gallery, and I was truly impressed **with** one painting. I mentioned it to my friend, and then she introduced me to John McKay, the painter of this piece. His hair was completely white **which contrasted** with his black skin. He **dressed really unusually**, because **he was dressed in all pink**. When he shook my hand, his face was radiant. And his eyes **felt** like they **were** peering into my soul. He was definitly one of the most **extraordinary** and splendid **people** I have ever met. This is how I would have worded this.

    2. ​‎”When it comes to major influences on the growth of children mentally and physically, there is a growing debate over whether the most impacting variable regarding children’s development comes from their parents. Although other factors can affect a child’s growth, I believe their parents play a major role in their child’s development. There is debate on whether other factors, such as television or a child’s friends, have the biggest role in children’s development. This is because children spend a lot more time on their computers or with their peers rather than spending time with their parents. Most children’s routines consist of staying at school half of the day, and then staying in their rooms on the computer, playing games or watching YouTube, for the remainder of the day. Although other factors can affect the way that a child grows, the biggest factor in children’s development come from their parents. First of all, children are affected by their parents since the day they are born. This is why parents try to show them only good things or feed them only healthy foods. In addition, the parents always try to be their role models. Whatever the parents do, their children are likely to follow in their footsteps. For the reasons mentioned above, I totally agree that parents have the most important role in their child’s development. Parents give motivation to their children, and children think about what their parents would do before they make important decisions.” This should fix some errors :)
