Hello folks,

Could you tell me if the following sentence is well-formed? Thanks in advance!

I hope that being immersed in a native environment during two months will help to bring my English level closer to that demanded in interpretation.

    Would you please point out the specific part that worries you? If you give us a starting point, a question about a word or a construction, we will be glad to help.

    We don't check over a text for errors ~ we call it proofreading, and it is against the rules.

    "Help to" and "that" are fine here, and the sentence as a whole is well formed. I have only one small suggestion. I would say "for two months", as you seem to be talking about the entire duration of the time. I use "during" if something happens within the stated time, but not continuously.

    Thank you very much for both the checking and the explanation of for/during. I never managed to understand the difference between both of them, so thank you for explaining it!
