    From the forum guidelines: People come into the forum at the time of their choosing. Most questions do get answered fairly quickly, but it may take a couple of hours. We do not guarantee an instant answer. Please try to be patient as the forum gets hundreds of posts every day.

    2. I realise that most people do not give a lot of thought to the title of their threads. You, unlike some people, did give a helpful title to yours - we know what it's about before we open it . However, 'correct it for me' sounds very abrupt, and may have caused some people not to open the thread. If you are going to use the imperative, that is fine, but we usually add 'please' to that form. The absence of 'please' may have made some people feel that they did not want to bother looking at your thread.

    3. I am not just going to lecture you and ignore your post! I have to leave now, but I'll be back in a few minutes to look at it.

    Try:

    Flowers are beautiful! I like them very much. I use flowers to express my feelings. We can see flowers in many places. (People like them so much that they cultivate them. They also take them inside.) Flowers come in many colors: red, white, pink, yellow, and others. I like red flowers because red stands for love. I want to give my teacher a red flower to express my love and respect for her.
    What is the subject of this brief essay. How might you rename this thread?
