Someone who can correct my mistakes, please!

Hi, I'm Angelica, I'm Italian, I study English and Russian and it's my first experience on Live Journal! I need to improve my Russian writing skills  so I would like someone to see and correct my posts. Is there anyone who could give a look to my entries in my journal? Thank you in advance ;)

"поощрение" is mostly "reward", or "promotion".

In this case I'd say "за понимание" (for understanding), "за поддержку" (for supporting), or just "за положительную оценку"(for appreciation).

I've subscribed to your journal. Do you want to get comments about correcting your posts here, or via private messages, or just under your posts?

P.S. Why did you decide to learn Russian? It's not that easy...

OK, let's start with your profile:

"Я родилась в маленьким месте на Юге Италии, где теперь Я живу."
в маленьком месте
On the other hand, it should be "в маленьком городке", "в маленькой деревне" or something like that. Just "место" doesn't make sense here.

The first letters of "юг" (а также "север", "восток", "запад") are not capitalized in Russian, unless they are the first words in a sentence, or part of a placename (e.g. "Северная Корея").

Same with "я", it's capital only as the first word in a sentence.

"в одной из самых знаменитых агенствов"
Must be "в одном из самых знаменитых агентств". Агентство is masculine, and written with "т", like in "агент", while in English it's "agency" with no "t".

"сейчась я продольжаю учиться"
"сейчас" и "продолжаю" have no "ь"

"для того, чтобы закончить высшее образование."
Not "закончить", but "получить".

В прошлом году Я принял участие"
I suppose, you are female, then "приняла участие"

"на Фестиваль европейского кино"
must be "в фестивале"

"русского филма"
фильма

"Я интересуюсь тоже турисмом."
Must be "Я также интересуюсь туризмом"

"работала в гостиницу"
в гостинице

"в последным году"
в прошлом году

"Это элитарный ресорт"
Must be "курорт". "ресорт" is not a Russian word.

"Закончить высшее образование" — "законченное высшее образование". It's correct.

Агентство is neutral.
Закончить высшее образование is OK if it's been interrupted.

[identity profile] dil.livejournal.com 2016-06-01 08:51 am (UTC)(link)
Oops.. You are quite right!
Агентство is neutral indeed, can't understand why I wrote masculine...
And you can "закончить высшее образование" if it was interrupted.

Anyhow "получить образование" is correct in both cases, if it was interrupted, or not.

Your first post

"мне 24 лет" must be "мне 24 года"

It's a bit difficult in Russian:
when the integer part of number ends with 1 - it's "год", e.g. "мне 1/21/101 год"
2,3,4 - "года": "мне 63 года"
5,6,7,8,9,0 - "лет": "мне 10/18/25/100 лет"

It doesn't change if you add half year:
"мне 23.5 (двадцать три с половиной) года"
"мне 25.5 (двадцать пять с половиной) лет"
