Topic: In an absolute silence, he walked until

I don't see anything grammatically wrong, but I would suggest two small changes.

1. ...he sat down to proceed to perform... is rather awkward.
I would just say ...he sat down to perform...

2. I also suggest: ...three coins, each with a strange figure on
one side.

Topic: Cheer on

When your team scores a goal, you cheer them. If they're playing well and look as if they might score, you cheer them on (encourage them).

(Apologies, thar — we were writing at the same time, I think. Your explanation is more complete.)

Topic: Is the comma after 'ready' required?
Posted: Sunday, April 15, 2018 7:11:06 AM
You can remove the comma after dinner, but if you do, you must also remove the comma after evening.

Topic: which or that

I agree with BobShilling. Which would be OK also, but would need a comma after Technology.

Topic: They are not seeming to understand
Posted: Monday, April 2, 2018 6:46:35 AM
1) They do not seem to understand the situation.
2) They are not seeming to understand the situation.

What is the difference in meaning?


There is no difference in meaning, but a native English speaker would not use (2).
