Anyway, As I was saying, I was admiring the dresses in that Steilmann dress and when suddenly I felt a someone grasp on my arm. As you can imagine, I got became very confused and scared in at the same time. I turned away quickly and I got shocked was stunned for 2 seconds: a short man, with a dubious look, was actually grabbing my bag! Can you imagine? He was robbing stealing my bag with my precious-just-bought Zara dress from Zara!

Ohh my God, I thought I would faint. But in the next second I started beating him hardly with the magazine that I was holding in my other hand. I was so scared and frightened, because he had strongly grabbed my hand with so much force and had started rudely ripping my shirt. I can still feel my hand aching me. My hand still hurts!

Thank you

Raluca!!! Excellent work!

You had me smiling the whole time. Not because the woman had been robbed but by how creative and descriptive your assignment is. I LOVE IT! You really set an example for everyone else here. I changed a couple things (word placement, spelling and a bit of grammar) BUT in general I must congratulate you. What a great job!

Also, THANK YOU for submitting the picture too. It makes your assignment very visually pleasing. I encourage everyone to include a picture with your assignments. :)
Keep you the great work Raluca.

I went for shopping but suddenly as I picked up my wallet from my bag, an unknown person stole my wallet and ran outside of the shop. Being a girl I could not catch him. I called the police for help, but unfortunately due to the slow service of the police, the thief ran freely from the spot. I was interrogated by the police officials officers on this matter. I could not recognize his face, but except his he was dressed in black pants and a blue shirt and was of average height. Since, I have had no more money I came home empty handed and was scolded by my parents for not taking better care the money. It was a memorable day in my life so that I will handle money very carefully in the future.

Hello Diana, thanks for your feedback!!!
First I have to say that I really liked the way you improved my assignment. Now I can easily understand my mistakes. And that is great because, next time when I will read something I will pay attention to those kind of issues.
Second, I enjoyed your comments very much, it motivates me!! Thank you. See you at my next assignment. Bye

You are very welcome Raluca. I will be correcting the assignments once a week now (probably Fridays) because I am working on my new English Course for beginners. First Beginners...then Intermediates...and then Advanced! I think a course is what people REALLY want! Have a great afternoon! -Diana
