*SENTENCE COMBINATION*

Learning to combine ideas into more complex sentences is an important writing skill. There are many ways to do this. Try to combine the following three sentences.

Sentence 1: Many people in Canada are looking forward to spring.
Sentence 2: Spring is particularly appreciated in a country where most people experience a very long a long winter.
Sentence 3: This winter has seemed longer than most, with snow still on the ground in many places.

Many people in Canada are looking forward to spring as it is particularly appreciated in a country where most people experience a very long winter and this winter seemed longer than most with snow still on the ground in places.

This winter has seemed longer than most; with snow still on the ground many in Canada are looking forward to spring, which is particularly appreciated in a country where most people experience long winters.

Well done, James!

Patti, your answer is technically correct, but I wonder if you could come up with a sentence that doesn't rely on a semi-colon to join the clause
