    Cool either or both or eles?

    Hi,

    Is the following sentence correct?

    You can tell him by sketching or with hand signs. He doesn't understand either ways.

    No, you seem to mean "other ways". If he doesn't understand either of these ways, you can't use them.

    Well, in that case, it makes no sense to say "You can tell him ...". That immediately suggests that he will understand.

    "Regardless of whether you try communicating with him by sketching or by hand signals, he won't understand you."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
