One example of this is if their friends...or copy from somebody.

They don't want to disrupt the relationship...

Parents always want their children to get good jobs.

In my opinion, hard work is really important...
Q: Please show me example sentences with which sentence wrong ?.
A: Well, there are some grammatical mistakes here and there, but I think the most important thing is that you should avoid repeating the words "cheating", "studying" and "students".
"They can get happy" would mean a possibility, right? I think you could use "they may even get happy".
I don't think "notes" can be used instead of "grades", so you could just say "low ones", because you already mentioned the grades before, but I think you could say "they cheat on exams in order to avoid getting low grades, otherwise they could even be ashamed of the ones they got" or sth like this.
I didn't get what you wanted to say by "the parents always check not for their children's future life".
All in all, I think you should try rewriting it paying attention to those mistakes.
It's really good for starters! Keep up!
Q: Please show me example sentences with which sentence wrong ?.
A: "A comparison between my maths teacher and geometry teacher reveals some surprising similarities." Good.

"First, both are logical." This sounds a bit weird. I would prefer to say "First, both think logically" or "First, both are logical people."

"For example my maths teacher, Anil, like solving problems." Use a comma after "For example." And "like solving problems" should be "likes solving problems" or "likes to solve problems."

"Similarly, my geometry teacher, Kaan, is helps solve difficult problems for us." The word "is" is not needed.

"For example of this, if you don't solve maths problem, you can ask the question." You need "an" after "For", like "For an example of this." You can also say "As an example of this." The rest needs a little fixing: "For an example of this, if you can't solve a maths problem, you can ask him for help."

"Both Anil and Kaan helps for you." Try saying instead "Both Anil and Kaan are helpful." or "Both Anil and Kaan are willing to help you."

"Secondly, not only my maths teacher but also my geometry teacher go to gym." The "not only my baths teacher but also my geometry teacher" isn't needed and sounds strange as we already know you're talking about them. You should simply say "Secondly, they both...". Need a "the" before gym. "Secondly, they both go to the gym."

"Anil and Kaan look very much alike." Sounds good.

"Anil is as tall as Kaan." Sounds good.

"They both has a moustache and a beard." The word "both" is plural, so use "have" instead of "has." "They both have a moustache and a beard."

"If your teachers has a really good sense of humour, life becomes joyful." The word "teachers" is plural, so use "have" instead of "has". Next, saying "a really good sense of humour" implies that your teachers collectively have the same sense of humour. If you make it plural, you are saying that they each have their own. Lastly, I would recommend saying "more joyful" instead of "joyful" alone. Here's what I would say overall: "If your teachers have good senses of humour, your life becomes more joyful."

The above fixes your sentences, but it doesn't help the flow of the paragraph. Here's how I would rewrite the entire thing.

A comparison between my maths teacher and geometry teacher reveals some surprising similarities. First, both think logically. For example, my maths teacher, Anil, likes solving problems. Similarly, my geometry teacher, Kaan, helps us solve difficult problems. As an example of this, if you aren't able to solve a maths problem, you can ask him for help. As a result, both Anil and Kaan are quite helpful. Secondly, both of them regularly go to the gym and look very much alike. For example, they are about the same height and each have a moustache and a beard. If your teachers have really good senses of humor, your life becomes more joyful. In conclusion, they are both really good people. Because of this, I feel lucky everyday.

Synonyms of "Sentence" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between sentences and writing and a composition ?
A: Sentences can be counted. You can have three or four sentences. Writing cannot be counted and is a general term for anything that someone has written. A composition is a complete set of sentences (like an essay or a story). The difference between a composition and writing is that a composition one full piece of work whereas as writing could be a half finished, pages and pages of notes, or even just a memo or signature. Hope this helps.
Q: What is the difference between me and I in a sentence ?
A: A tip for "my friend and I/me" would be to remove the "my friend and" portion and see if it sounds natural then.

"[My friend and] me went to the park" (wrong)
"[My friend and] I went to the park" (correct)

"He spoke to [my friend and] me" (correct)
"He spoke to [my friend and] I" (wrong)
Q: What is the difference between I was amazed when I saw the above sentence. and I was amazed when I saw the sentence above. ?
A: Though both are acceptable, I would say that "the sentence above" is more natural and common (and correct). "above" is usually considered a preposition and not an adjective. When writing "the above sentence", the writer is forcing "above" to be an adjective. It works, though the prepositional usage is more common, I believe.
Q: What is the difference between I can regard this sentence is combined "How much" and "do you think it will cost." and I can consider this sentence a combination of "How much" and "do you think it will cost." ?
A: I can regard this sentence is combined "How much" and "do you think it will cost."
- ungrammatical

I can consider this sentence a combination of "How much" and "do you think it will cost."
- OK

I think the question involves "regard" vs "consider"
It's just that "regard" sounds better than "consider".
Q: What is the difference between the first sentence in 128 and 129 ?
A: "You're a dick" means that you're unnecessarily mean, crude, or cruel.

"You're a pussy" means that you're weak or cowardly.

Translations of "Sentence"

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? about these sentence.
A: I used to make surprise videos and mini photo albums frequently for my friends, or for people who I wanted to please. Unfortunately, one of the people I had been doing this for wasn't responding nicely. If I was doing something annoying, I'm very sorry and I'm still reflecting on that experience.

Now I understand that surprises can be annoying sometimes.
I don't think I'll ever plan a surprise event for someone who doesn't understand the personality carefully from now on.

If you notice any lack of consideration, please tell me gently.

Wow! This is really, really, really good! Everything is very clear and understandable! Almost everything is perfect, except for a few grammar mistakes. Good job!! You did very good!!
Q: How do you say this in English (US)? about these sentence.
A: I took photos of many people this year.
On the other hand, I had someone else take a lot of pictures.
Even if I didn’t know them, or was meeting them for the first time, I actively took a lot of pictures of people, and I'm glad that they where very happy. That behavior has also been a lot of help to me, since I can study these strange and interesting emotions.

I want to keep shooting for the purpose of making people happy. I want to observe people’s reactions and learn different expressions to tell wether they don’t like the picture or if they’re satisfied with it. I'm not generally self-satisfied myself with my ability to gauge wether people are happy, uncomfortable or upset with certain pictures I’ve taken. I’d like to improve in this area.

I myself want to have someone take a picture only when I want or other people feel having a picture taken.

This writing is very good! The second paragraph was very clear, but there are still some areas that need improvement.

I don’t quite understand when you say, “On the other hand, I had someone take a lot of pictures.” It’s a little confusing, but it’s difficult for me to explain exactly why it is...(I’m sorry!).
Other than that, there are just some minor things that could be improved.
My suggestion is to use the same tenses consistently and make you’re writing a little be clearer on what you’re referring to.
You’re writing is very good!

I hope this helps!
Q: How do you say this in English (US)? Which sentence is appropriate? ①Do you think which comedian is going to blow up this year? ②Which comedian do you think is going to blow up this year?
A: #2 is grammatical and #1 isn't.

Starting the question with "Do you think..." asks for an answer of "yes" or "no", so it doesn't make sense for this question.
Q: How do you say this in English (US)? about these sentence
A: “I hope the rest of 2019 will be beautiful and wonderful for you.”
you missed the “be”.
Q: How do you say this in English (US)? is this sentence correct? she will be graduated in 2020?
A: the -ed is used to indicate past tense, where as will be is indicating future tense.

The sentence will be graduated is conflicting and does not work.

you could say:
1. she graduated in 2020 ( this would be past tense)
2. she will graduate in 2020 ( future tense)

she will be loved in the song was probably chosen lyrically without regards to correctness. there are many songs that have similar scenarios.

Other questions about "Sentence"

Q: What does this sentence mean,「you just learn to live with it, to ride its wave.」?
Which meaning is correct?
「You just learn to live with it,and you just learn to ride its wave.」
or
「To ride Its wave, you just learn to live with it.」

These are Oprah Winfrey's words from Oprah.com.

The previous sentence is「And in moments of weakness, your fear and self-doubt may cause you to falter. Remember that you can't get rid of the fear or doubt; you just learn to live with it, to ride its wave.」.

Thank you.
A: ( You just learn to live with it, to ride its wave. ) this basically means that whenever you’re facing a hard situation and you’re afraid , you learn about and get used to the fear or doubt and know how to allow your emotions to be with you without them affecting you in a negative way. You just adapt to -fear- that it doesn’t affect you anymore because you know it’s normal to have times of weakness and life is all about ups and downs , just like the sea a tidal wave coming and another one going, when you are having hard times you know you will go back to the calm state you were once in , and by that time you’ll for sure be stronger because you’ve managed to live with fear and self-doubt .

As for the other question about which sentence is right:
1. You just learn to live with it, and you just learn to ride its wave .
This sentence is a 💯% right one, but in English when it’s possible to make the sentence shorter without affecting its meaning , it’s for sure better , so instead of saying that , you just say :
(You just learn to live with it and to ride its wave. )
Here, we basically deleted the (you) because it’s the same subject in both of the sentences so that you won’t feel redundancy , and we deleted the verb (learn) too because it’s also the same one in both of the sentences and that won’t affect the meaning, in contrast it’s a 💯% more accurate one :)

And the second sentence:
2. (to ride its wave, you just learn to live with it.)
this one is wrong in its meaning, it’s ambiguous ! because you are modifying the subject (you) with riding its wave which is totally wrong in this case as for a meaning ..

The best way to say it is :
•You just learn to live with it and to ride its wave.
It’s a correct sentence in meaning and grammar .

I hope you got the idea, and I’m sorry for the long explanation!
Q: What does this sentence mean.

While I was Reading a book named rich dad poor dad I came across this sentence.

The part of my soul that was weak and needy was silenced.
A: It means he was not weak and needy anymore.

There was a part of him that was weak and needy, like a child. This part was "loud" I guess, meaning that he was weak and needy a lot. He reacted in weak and needy ways. But then this part was silenced, which means that he no longer acted as a weak and needy person.

needy = having a lot of needs.
