Hi Torsten

This test sentence could use some tweaking:

- The use of "have always liked" combined with "all my life" is pretty redundant.

- I presume a second sentence was intended, starting with the word "it's":
. It's so beautiful.

On a similar theme, how would this sound, Amy?

I have always liked the sound of the Italian language since my visit there twenty years ago?

Hi Molly

My post was addressed to Torsten and also addresses a specific sentence. If you want opinions about your specific sentence, I'd suggest starting a separate thread for it.

Hi Amy,

Thanks a lot for pointing this out. When Alan sent me the test, the sentence contained a dash which I forgot to insert. I've added it and it'll go online with the next update.
Regards,
Torsten
