    Re: Appreciation Letter

    Thanks for your answer. But I doubt that the verb "has" is wrongly used here because the subject is two things; (1) your enthusiasm (2) your ability. Thus it should be the plural. shouldn't it?
    Regards!

    Re: Appreciation Letter

    Tdol, shouldn't it be "improvement" instead of betterment? I am not familiar with that expression.

    I have just had a look at it is apparently used in finance. Can it be used here?
