please someone helps me with this sentence


I accept all comments

See example:

Although, I prepared the presentation, it results unacceptable to my expectations; during the speech, I made long pauses and a few gestures caused by nervousness that betrayed my memory.

I don't know why the delay occurred. I'm just a volunteer here and not connected with the software company at all. If you have a pending question, check in daily to see if there is an answer.

There are a few errors in this sentence. The comma after 'although' is incorrect. 'It' should be 'its', and 'were' should follow 'results'. The semicolon is correct, but I think this would work better as two sentences. I would change the verbs in the second sentence.  'That betrayed my memory' doesn't make sense.  I would change this part as shown.


Although I prepared the presentation, its results were unacceptable to my expectations.  During the speech, I had long pauses and made a few gestures that betrayed my nervousness.
