Excellent!

Aunque la última corrección "a la pared" y "en la pared" debiera generar alguna controversia.

@Hernán: voto por "en".


Me duelen los ojos cuando fijo la vista por mucho tiempo.
My eyes hurt when I fix them on something for a long time.

Uno consejo, pienso que "for a long time" suena mejor y es más común

I can use this word in the following sentence.

I need serious commentaries of my practice.


I need to fasten the opinion of the annotators.


Please if you so lovable, I require you that you give a little check to my sentence, because I'd like to know if it's right and it's not wrong.


I appreciate your support.
