    Welcome to the forum.

    This site might help you.

    Also, please note the amendments I have made to your post. Please remember the following when posting on the forum:

    - Start every new sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular).
    - Capitalise proper nouns (ie English).
    - Do not capitalise common nouns (ie teacher).
    - Remember to use apostrophes where necessary.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
