    Hi

    As a NES, but not a teacher, I might advise:

    2. You are from Delhi, but you go to the UK very often.
    3. If you are willing, call me on my UK number.
    4. Do you meet people
    5. You go to Delhi and when you reach Delhi, can you say Delhi has come? - Not unless Delhi actually moves in the process!
