    Most of this is questionable of whether it is interesting advertisement or terrible failure.

    I think the thing that makes the difference is that `native` is capitalized.

    The comma after "I am from the United States" is unnecessary, but Grammatically correct as it separates two independent clauses.

    Therefore, if you follow the "Language is a static entity with fixed rules" school, then it IS necessary. It can be dispensed with only if you allow that language is an ever-changing living thing; in which case, no particular spelling, or punctuation, is specifically valid.

    The comma after "I am from the United States" is unnecessary, but Grammatically correct as it separates two independent clauses.
    Actually, it is incorrect because the second clause is NOT independent since it does not have its own subject. Had the second clause been "and I have just earned my Master`s Degree," that would have made it an independent clause requiring a comma.

    Further, neither "Native" nor "Grammatically" need be capitalized; there should be an "and" between "punctuation" and "word"; and there should be a period after "use."

    What`s sad is that someone with a Masters degree has has to whore themselves out to get a few pennies proofreading documents which any literate individual with a basic High School education should be able to do.

    I don`t mean to be a Euro-peon, but one of the cons of making the decision to move my family from Europe to North America was the knowledge that my daughter would receive a relatively poor education.

    I`m hoping that the benefits will offset the detractions.

    Just pick up the average novel these days; I find about 1 error every 10-15 pages on average.

    PS, its "proofread" , "proofreader" and "people`s". Also, there should be a comma after "free" :-)

    I`m with you, keatonatron. I was sitting here wondering what in the heck I was missing as the flyer made perfect sense to me, too. Then I realized, "OH! It`s as if someone *else* has come up and corrected the flyer." Which, of course, if the "mistakes" weren`t only on the bolded words right smack in the center of the flyer, obviously put there as examples, I`d have understood.

    Maybe the owner of the flyer can give classes in logic, too? :-)

    It doesn`t really make sense seeing as how the corrections are in pen not in computer ink because anyone passing by reading it would think that someone else corrected that and wouldn`t think she did it on purpose.
