I charge 5 cents (USD) per word of submitted text. How many LingQ points willl appear in my points account if the submitted text is 100 words?
500 points -15% commission. 425 points total.
Zoran, your response was very helpful! So user would “pay” 500 points and I would receive 425 points. So the person pays 5 points per word, and what goes into my account is 85% of the total points “paid”. Perfect!
I just posted this on my “wall” and I included the “cost” for each sample text that I corrected. [quote] I am available to correct your writing at a rate of 5 POINTS PER WORD. Below are some examples of texts that I corrected June 29, June 30, July 1 and/or July 2, 2021.
This is a sample of what I can do for you in exchange for LingQ points.
This past Friday, 5 days ago, was a sad day. It was the anniversary of the invasion of the Republic of South Korea which happened on June 25,1950. On that date, North Korea invaded our country, South Koreaand the Korean War broke out. The Republic of Korea was founded on August 15, 1948, only 2 years before the war broke out. Our government failed to protect our people at the border, and those péople had to move to the city of Busan at the edge of Korean peninsula. At that time, the US saved us by sending their soldiers to keep freedom and democracy.
This past Friday marked the anniversary of the invasion of the Republic of South Korea by north Korea on June 25, 1950.The Korean War broke out shortly thereafter. The start of the war was triggered by the invasion by North Korea. The Republic of Korea had been established on August 15, 1948, only 2 years previously. After the war broke out, our government failed to protect the people at the border, and those people had to move to the city of Busan at the tip of the Korean peninsula. The US saved us by sending their soldiers to safeguard freedom and democracy-

This past Friday, 5 days ago, was sad day. June 25,1950, the North Korea invaded our country, South Korea. The Korea War was broken. Shortly speaking, it was clearly an invasion by the North Korea, because our country, Republic of Korea was built on August 15, 1948, only 2 years ago, and after breaking the war, our government failed to protect them at our border and had to move to the city of Busan at the edge of Korean peninsula.

Most affluent Asian immigrants live in the northeast area of the city. All the most fashionable shopping centers are located there, where only well-known brand stores such as Gucci can be found. These affluent immigrants love to boast, to other Asian immigrants living in other parts of the city, about the expensive clothing and jewelry they buy from these high-end stores.
NOTE: The use of the word “Asian” is odd, because it is hard to imagine Asian immigrants bragging in English to other Asian immigrants. It’s not as if Asians are monolithic in languagem culture or anything for that matter. The text would be more credible is “Asian” was replaced with “Chinese” or “South Korean”, or “Indian”, for example.
NOTE: THe text would be more pleasant by using more synonums instead of repeating the same words again and again. Here are some examples: affluent, wealthy, filthy rich, OR Chinese immigrants, newcomers from China, Chinese foreigners.
NOTE: We speak of “regions” of the world or “regions” of a country. We speak of “areas”, “sections”, or “areas” of a city.
NOTE; Your use of northwestern was correct. The two words, northwest and northwestern, can be used interchageably here. Each act as adjective here.

The influx of water gushing out from the broken faucet flooded the bathroom in minutes. John came into the bathroom unaware of the flood and fell on his back as soon as he stepped through the bathroom door.

There are two family pictures here, Richard wana to introduce his family to us.
In the first picture is Richard and two ladies, One of the women is his mom and the other is his aunt. His mother and aunt are completly the same because they are twins. They are about 8o years old. People recognise his mom and aunt when they are both together. When Richard was a child, his friens mistook his aunt for his mother. His friends came up to talk to his aunt thinking that she was Richard’s mom. His aunt didn’t know who those people were.
In the second picture is his mom and his sister’s family. His sister is Sue. She works for the goverment. She is a secretary. Behind Sue is Richard’s brother-in-law, Kevin. Kevin is an architect. Richard’s nephew and niece are also behind Sue.Jack, Richard’s nephew, is 18. He just passed his A-level exam that we have in the UK, and he is going to university in September. Richard´s neice is Joanne. She is 16 and she goes to high school. Richard’s aunt is married, but his aunt and uncle don’t have any children, so Richard doesn’t have any cousins.
NOTE: Be care not to combine independent clauses with a comma. You may combine independent clause with a semi-colon ( or with “comma FANBOYS”. Here is an example:
There are two family pictures here. (This is an independent clause standing alone as a complete sentence.)
Richard wants to introduce his family to us. (This is an independent clause standing alone as a complete sentence.)
There are two family pictures here; Richard wants to
introduce his family to us.
There are two family pictures here, and Richard wants to introduce his family to us.
NOTE: In general, if your aim is clear communication with your audience, combining independent clauses to make longer sentences does not enhance or facilitate easy comprehension.
NOTE: Begin statements with a capital letter. End statements with a period.
NOTE: Be careful not to create “run-on” sentences.
NOTE: Do not use a comma (,) before the word “because”.
NOTE: Make sure you are pronouncing “come” and “came” correctly.
NOTE: …when Richard grew up… = when Richard became an adult…
NOTE: If you have access to a desktop computer or laptop it might be more conscious of your capitalization and punctuation.
NOTE: You often use commas when you should use periods.
NOTE: “his neice” might be “Jack’s niece” or “Richard’s niece” so it is best to not use “his niece” because whose niece is ambiguous
NOTE: She goes to high school. = She is in high school. = She is a high school student.
