    Yes, I agree. Only when he is sure of his correction.

    Harry, to err is human. You are about right... If he is not a teacher, the one who asked for help will wait for an answer from a teacher, but his help will serve. (Of course, you don't expect a reply from non-native, learning-beginner )

    These words were pronounced by me several times. All of us can make a mistake. When I'm not sure I don't even correct mistakes. I know there are a lot of teachers and native speakers who will do it for me.

    I agree with you, but I think he didn't say he's not sure...
    Nevermind, this is not the topic after all.

    Moderators, please delete all post that are not related to the topic, we don't want to confuse anybody... Thanks!

    Re: a question!

    Would members please remember that it is extremely discourteous to comment adversely on another member's standard of English, or to tell other members whether they can or can't answer questions here.

    The Forum Rules explain what can and can't be posted.

    If your post does not break any Forum Rules, your contribution is welcome.

    Many thanks for your co-operation.
