Steve Wallace, the founder of Wallace Academic Editing, pointed out that many Hong Kong students are not using proper English, which leads to more rejections by journals on students' research papers.

Wallace said, as a appropriate research paper always aims at expressing what the researcher wants to tell as quick as he or she can, the use of English must be short and clear. "You are more clear when you are direct," he said that a means of making the content clearer is using more precise verbs. He said that there are strong and soft verbs, and the use of former one can give more precise meanins and improve the accuracy and direction of what a research paper wants to tell.

When asked about how to improve the use of English, Wallace suggested travelling. "You should travel when you are young," he encouraged people to go travelling as it is an opportunity to enrich one's knowledge of English. He said that by travelling different countries, people can be more educated through the experience of using daily English, and they will eventually see the importance of English as it is a world language.
