    Do you understand it?

    1. I am interesting, what amount of sentences can you understand in the following text: 0%, 20%, 40%, 60%, 80% or 90%? These pieces of text are my today and yesterday practices in English.

    2. What is your recommendations to improving English skills at all? What should I do for this? What kinds of activities?

    AceVentura14.txt
    =======================================
    And when Melissa was going into the house Ace said:
    v: You're a fatty.
    He was just kidding, of course.

    So, Melissa came into the house in order to take the phone. Ace stayed
    outside. He said the dog:
    v: Hey, do you love you=>she =>her too?.. I know. She is beautiful.

    As Melissa haven't came out for a long time Ace has decided to come in
    too. When he came in, Melissa said, that Roger Producter is killed. Ace
    only said: What a hell? Then he accidentally looked at the picture hanged
    =>hanging on the wall, pointed at some person in the middle of picture and said in a
    loud voice:
    v: Who is that?
    m: This is Ray Finkle! Haven't you ever heard about Ray Finkle?
    v: No. (said Ace with a sarcasm) I'd like to know why he missed on this
    photo? (and Ace tooke out of his pocket the other picture of the team).
    m: That picture was made earlier that this one but Ray was included in the
    team in the middle of the season. And I also have to say that he was
    rejected once after a game in the Superbowl, because he missed the key
    ball and his team lost.
    v: Does he have a ring?
    m: Certainly!
    v: Ohhh! It is interesting. This guy has a cause for stealing Snowflake. By
    the way, do you know, where is Ray now?
    m: He moved to his home city after this game, I think.
    v: That's an interesting question. We'll have to explore it in the future
    because we have to vizit Roger Producter, do we?
    m: OK.

    Thus Ace and Melissa has been going to the building where an apartment of
    Roger Producter was located. There was a lot of cops there. Ace took on a
    glove
    =>put a glove on and started to go within an apartment. He went to the balcony and
    returned back. At this moment Louise Einhorn came in the apartment too.
    She said to the cops:
    e: Why Ace is here? What's going on?!
    They told her:
    c: Ace and Melissa went into the apartment together.
    Einhorn started kidding and asked Ace:
    e: Ace, I think it's pretty clear: the suicide was there. Get out! The
    real cops will make an investigation!
    v: All right! I'll get out soon. But what do you say about the drop of
    blood on the balcony's rail?.. I think it was a murder!
    Einhorn was speechless a couple of seconds, then she said:
    e: Ace, it all is really smart, but you missed one important thing: an
    evidence! You don't have any evidents to prove your point view, do you?
    =======================================

    AceVentura15.txt
    =======================================
    v: Well, unfortunately I am speachless.
    e: Get out, Ventura! You can't do the job for real cops!
    v: OK. I'll go out right now... But I'd like to tell you one more thing.
    Ace made a pause and continued.
    v: This woman, a neighbor of Roger Producter, says that she heard a shout,
    right?
    And the neigbor of Roger Producter confirmed this words.
    v: But this man, and
    Ace pointed at another neighbor of Roger Producter says that he came in
    and opened the balcony's door, right?
    The man confirmed his words.
    v: Are you sure? Did you open the door? Didn't you close the door?
    m: Of course! I am sure that I opened the door.
    e: What's the point, Ventura?!
    Ace went into the balcony, closed the door and started to shout. But when
    he was shouting he has been closing and opening the balcony's door. Only
    Louise Einhorn has started to understand what Ventura want to say => what he was trying to tell. So, Ace
    was kidding in the that way during the same time. Then he went into the
    apartment again and said:
    v: As you can see, there are the plastic windows in this apartment. It
    means, that nobody can hear a shout when this door is closed,
    consequently, it means that Roger Producter was killed and man killing he
    threw down Roger with that balcony, then he closed the door and went out.
    These is my proves! =>These are my proofs!

    All cops in the apartment was surprized and when Ace was leaving the
    apartment, he was singing himself: Losers! Losers!. I think he had the
    right to do it.

    So, Melissa and Ace came into the Ace's apartment, where Ace has started
    to find information about Ray Finkle. They found out the address of Roger
    Producter. By the way Melissa asked Ace:
    m: Ace why you find animals. I was surprized how you made an investigation
    of the murder of Roger Producter. I think you would be a great cop!
    v: You know, Melissa, I like animals. By the way I can tell you one story.
    When I was a little boy about seven I dreamt, that I was following by a
    big dog... The dog was grey and it had a big mouth with sharp teeth... And
    couldn't escape from it. It has been running down me and finally it jumped
    at me... And when I waked up I found a bite mark right here...

    Ace pointed a pace before his ear => Ace pointed at the place behind his ear. /*Эйс указал на место за ухом*/ And when Melissa moved up in order to
    see one, Ace barked on you in a loud voice. Melissa was frightened. Thus
    Ace pulled her leg. Anyway Mellisa wanted to go away, but Ace asked you:
    v: Where do you going?
    m: I'll go to my apartment.
    v: It can be dangerous because Roger Producter is dead and you work with
    him.
    m: Well, in that case, what will we do?
    v: I have a couple of things in my mind...

    And Ace and Melissa started to make love. In the morning Ace desiced=>decided to
    visit a family house of Ray Finkle in his home district. When Ace has been
    driving to this home, he found a lot of describes reading "Ray sucks!",
    "Die Ray" and so on.

    Понятно все, но с трудом.
    These is my proves! - как минимум proofs и is/are. Но гуглем что-то
    мало такого находится.
    Loosers! Loosers!. - losers. loose - это свободный/несвязанный/освобождать и тп.
    picture hanged on the wall - hanging
    started to go within an apartment - т.е. он уже был внутри дома и начал двигаться в нем?
    took on a glove - не бывает. take off / put on. Причем предлог в конце-
    "put his gloves on". Или он только одну надел?
    ...do you love you too - кто кого любил?
    pace before ear, desiced - непонятно совсем.
    has started to understand what Ventura want to say - .."what he was trying to tell"/was telling
    Ну а англоговорящие тут наверняка еще и зеленым много чего покрасят.
    2. What is your recommendations to improving English skills at all? What should I do for this? What kinds of activities?
    Видимо читать. Первоисточники. Где и прямая речь, и всякие ситуации типа вошел в дом-снял трубку-сказал ей-она ответила и тп.
    Russian is tough, let’s go shopping!

    Да, это так: он надел (белую резиновую) перчатку на одну руку и начал ходить по квартире (в поисках доказательств ). Остальные вещи я поправил в тексте исходного сообщения.

    Vox05, спасибо.
