    Which one is the correct one?

    Dear teachers and fellow members,

    I am an ESL student. English is my second language. My goal is I can edit my own writing and spot the grammatical errors. May I ask which below is the correct one?

    1. You are at your own risk
    or
    2. You are on your own risk.

    I am having difficulty using preposition such as how to use it, when, etc.

    I would appreciate your help and thank you very much for helping me.

    Hi Chicka,

    You DO something at your own risk, you don't exist at your own risk.

    Swim at your own risk - Sign next to a beach without lifeguards.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    You could say:
    .
    You are on your own.

    or

    The risk is your own.

    or

    The risk is yours.

    Hi Chicka,
    Welcome to the forums. I'm sorry I didn't realize it was your first post before.

    Here's one more for you:
    Advise me (a verb)
    Give me advice (a noun)

    Note the S and the C
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
