I know my dream is absurd and that I must face reality. So, I'm studying English now like this. However, I can still imagine me singing and dancing on a stage.

I know my dream is absurd and that I must face reality. So, I'm studying English now like this. However, I still imagine me singing and dancing on a stage.

I mean, "I can still imagine" vs "I still imagine"

    Both sound OK: it depends what you want to say... to emphasize can imagine or do imagine... possibility, rather than actuality. – JavaLatte Apr 14 '20 at 7:53

    Note that the first sentence contains parallel clauses. The parallel clauses should be the same. There are three possibilities: Use no thats, use two thats, or have just one that in the first position, so that it's not part of the parallel clauses. One that in just the second parallel clause is inelegant. You start sentences 2 and 3, with conjunctions. That's OK if it helps to flow of the sentences, but this doesn't. It's like.... leaving.... gaps in ... a sentence. Eliminate So from the first sentence because it doesn't add anything, and put a comma before however. – JavaLatte Apr 14 '20 at 8:02

    You should fix "me" in the last sentence to "myself" as well. – applemonkey496 Apr 14 '20 at 17:05
