    Please let me know!
    billmcd has already answered your post, but I would like to remind you not to use pls since it's not English.

    Cheers!

    Hello raylearnenglish,
    Maybe my statement was a bit "hard".
    The problem is that such words like "pls", "thx", "cu" are not proper English.
    Yes, they are used for chat, but they don't belong here since we try to focus on proper English.
    By the way, there is also a rule:

    A forum isn't the same as a chatroom- people may read posts months or years later, and writing things in full rather than using abbreviations does make things easier to read.
