  • As most people might know, yestersay was the double ninth festival.
  • As most people might know, yesterday was the Double Ninth Festival.
  • Personally, it's strange to see 'most' and 'might' in the same clause. Because 'most' implies a large amount, but 'might' implies a small amount. [As most people would know...] --> the majority know [As some people might know...] --> the minority know

  • Hesitation:I'm not sure which word is better to decribe the situation that some students or workers shared their tips about how to obtain higer scores on TOEFL, ''seminar'' or ''lecture''?

  • 'Seminar' is more like a conference or meeting for discussion and perhaps training. 'Lecture' is an educational talk by a professor(s) to a group of students. So for that situation, 'seminar' is probably the better word choice.
