On lined paper, rewrite the following paragraph, correcting any sentence fragments.
My five-year-old son Anthony is built like a little wind-up toy. His black curly hair, bushy
eyebrows, a cute button nose, and chubby cheeks, which people can't resist pinching.
These make him look like a life-size teddy bear. Anthony loves to wear his favorite black
leather jacket with the picture of the Skoal Bandit on the back. And jeans with patches
on the knees as a result of the holes he puts in them while crawling on the floor,
pushing his toy cars around. Indeed, he is a very energetic little boy. In one afternoon,
he will ride his bicycle, play video games, complete a 200-piece jigsaw puzzle, and, of
course, play with his toy cars. In fact, his energy scares me sometimes. For example, that
time on the roof. He shinnied up a tree and jumped onto the roof. However, he wasn't
energetic (or bold) enough to climb back down, and so I had to rescue my wonderful
little wind-up toy.
The study of French requires patience. Because the grammar rules are different from
those of the English language. This should not discourage you from learning a new
language. It important to be able to communicate with people from other countries. In
fact, in Canada it is doubly important to learn French. So you will be better able to
communicate with your fellow citizens. Which include getting a job and
being able to travel. For these reasons encourage you to accept the challenge and learn
French.
