Hi everyone, I need help with these sentences, I've been told they sound like a 5th grade grammar:

"She should learn some basic debating skills"

"You don't go off on someone like that just because they have different views than you do"

Thanks

1. Ok :ok:

2. Ok :ok: except “go off on”. Do you mean:
go off at (attack, shout at)
go off (change from like to dislike)
