    Happy to help you with English :)

    Hi everyone.

    I am new to this forum and thought I'd take the opportunity to introduce myself over here.

    I'm from Canada and I take pleasure in helping students with their English. It comes naturally to me and I'm happy to share my know-how!

    Looking forward to chatting with you all!

    You didn't need any commas in that statement, david11 (I've removed them above).
