      عزیزم مجبور بودید به انگلیسی بنویسید؟ برای کی نوشتید؟
      توی هر خط 10 تا غلط دارید.

    7. Dear Ahmad,
      I had to develop my English skills and one of those skills is Writing.
      I know my writing skill is not as well as my reading or speaking but I have to develop my skills.
      This article had to written in english cause each person whom decide to go to canada have to develop his/her english skills and had to read this or other similar article in english.
      Most of people I knew, when try to do something just gesturing and do not try to reach final goal. But actually I should say . I’m not one of those people.

      As I’m sure I have some issue in my writing (specially in this article) so if you can fix these issues, please fix it and mail me the fixed article, I’ll publish it with your name in this blog.

      Thank you, Hajloo
