    Default Any correction?

    Hello,

    This website seeks to present homoeopathy in a fair manner - the way it is and not the way it is being depicted or has come to be misunderstood in Pakistan through short write-ups reviewing its salient features, scope and limitations. In the process, an attempt has also been made to identify the corrupt practices of some of its practitioners and manufacturing companies and provide guidance to the people considering to take homoeopathic treatment on how to get the best from this medical science.

    With regards
    Abusaad

    Abusaad, I think you need a second dash after Pakistan. I assume that the short write-ups are on the site being fair to homeopathy and, if this the case, I'd put a dash there.

    Thank you, tdol. You are right, there should be a dash after Pakistan.

    Hi!
    I think you also need to change the verb structure in this part "provide guidance to the people considering to take homoeopathic treatment". Change 'to take' to 'taking' - it should be gerund after the verb "consider".
    Cheers.

    Thank you, engelska but are you sure about it? Wouldn't it sound unnatural "considering to taking .......".

    Sorry- I missed that. Engelska's right- it should be 'considering taking'. -)
