    Is he in the office?

    Hi to all teachers and friends,

    Can you please proof read my writing.
    It's been a long I didnít log in into this site. I think that itís good idea to keep writing and send it here, at least someone with a better English will read and notice if there is any mistake in my writing. In this way, I believe everyone can improve their English even though it is not their first language.

    My question is very simple. Is this the right way to ask the question whether the person is in the office or not.

    Is he in the office?

    If Iím not mistaken, thereís special term for this as we need to change the statement to question. So the statement in this case is:

    He is in the office.

    And question form statement is

    Is he in the office?

    Please let me know if you find any mistake in my writing since the first character at the beginning till the last character of this post.

    Any advice would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    That's fine.
    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.
