    Default Eleborate


    Dear Teacher,

    May i request for your assistance to eleborate a little bit more on the below sentense.


    My grandmother is a devoted Christian. “Devoted” means
    dedicated and committed to her religion. Every year, she goes to “Golden Triangle” located at Thailand, Laos and Myanmar to do voluntary work with the church members to look after the underprivileged children in the orphanage.


    Thanks, Sher

    Welcome to the forums, sher.

    What is the source of this quotation and why do you need to elaborate on it?

    If it's homework we can't help you with it.

    Note, sher, the word is 'elaborate'. and we can't elaborate on something (Latin, labor = work) until someone (you, perhaps ) has done some work on it first.
