One sentence/ Correction
Message from airis posted on 07-02-2017 at 23:42:08 (D | E | F)
I am trying to improve my writing skills and wrote the sentence below, can you please evaluate the sentence from a native perspective?
Thanks in advance ,
"The fundamental principle of veterinary science education is to raise conciseness about animal health care issues and animal welfare, ethic problems among veterinarian candidates."

It is a long sentence, you need a five-litre lung capacity to read it through !
Did you mean conciseness or consciousness ?
"The fundamental principle of veterinary science education is to raise conciseness(consciousness?) about animal health care issues and animal welfare, ethic problems among veterinarian candidates."

I also think it is very long . The reader misses the aim of the sentence and also it's meaning during the reading it. Please rewrite.
It's the first and most important problem.
Have a nice time with my answer!

I'll join the club of the other contributors. You'd better make shorter sentences.
Or, if you really want to keep this long one , and if I understand your ideas correctly , there might be a structural problem : use a comma after each matter (theme) and use (move) "and" before the last one.
Wish you the best !

Your sentence is too long to read as one sentence. You should change and write two sentences.
