    Default newsletter articles

    Hi people,

    I'm new to this forum, but for my job I've been asked to write a newsletter in english. I guess there are some mistakes in it, because one of the bosses told me there are constructions that are not oxford english. My job is now to find them, and I can assure you it is not that simple, since I am not a native english speaker and I wrote the text myself.

    If anyone could provide me with any help I would be very gratefull.

    the newsletter is on: http://www.intec.UGent.be/news

    please give me any mistakes you can find, even the smallest ones!

    if you see any constructions that can be improved! feel free to do so

    thank you very much!!!

    greetings,
    x

    I misread it and thought there was a preposition missing.
