- For Teachers
First of all, Happy New Year.
I would like to pick up your mind for a minute. I want to know if I can use the word 'Undermine' in this case, show below my sentence, please.
The power of America undermines countries that aren't able to survive by themselves.
What do you mean about this short phase ?
Thanks in advance for your collaboration.
See you soon and the forum.
I think you meant to say "pick your mind," not "pick up your mind."
"America's power undermines countries that aren't able to survive by themselves" is a grammatically correct sentence, but to be honest, I'm not sure what it means or what you meant to express.
Are you trying to say that America's power weakens the countries in question? If yes, how does it weaken them?
I'm not a teacher.
In this sentence I want to show that the US has a politic who certainly helps countries around the world but the injection of money notwithstanding doesn't have the effects expected. These aids undermine the gourverment in place. Do you follow me?
Are you sure about 'pick your mind'?
Thank for your fast reply.
