    Teachers Is this sentence correct? Than you!

    Teachers Is the sentence underlined correct? Especilly look?

    What about watching English movies, or reading English books? Maybe you could even make friends with native speaker of English. If you look hard enough, you'll find a good way to learn English better.

    Thank you!

    "look" is fine. but the "learn English better" part is odd, and it is not clear what you mean.
    You can say something like 'If you.............., you'll find a good way to (learn better English)(learn English faster)(learn English more efficiently)(improve your English), depending on what you want to emphasize.

    What do you want to say??

    Because if you want to find something, you have to look for it. You're not working hard; you're looking hard.

    "look hard(adverb)" means to look with a lot of effort and dedication.

    Use quotation marks, not underlining, when you want to ask about something you are quoting.

    By the way, are the two sentences below correct?"are" does not start a sentence. Why did you capitalize it?

    Are there some books and apples on the desk?
    Are there some books or apples on the desk?
    Of course they have different meanings.
