    Re: in quick way or quickly

    I am not a teacher nor a native speaker

    As for me, a more polite way of saying that would be 'Please, arrange ten thousand rupees as soon as possible.'

    Yours sincerely, Alex.

    This is not more polite, merely more urgent.

    Re: in quick way or quickly

    Thanks, 5jdjon, for righting me.

    I am sorry, I didn't aim to confuse anybody with my reply. I really thought it was a more polite way but it is not.

    5jdjon, why did you cross the 'As'?

    I am using the example given in the OALD, 'As for Jo, she's doing fine'.

    The ALD explanation of 'as for' is: "used to start talking about sb/sth", which is fine.

    Had you written, "As for me, I think that a more polite ..." I would not have changed it. However, in the original you were not about to talk about you, but about the sentence, so I changed it to 'for me', which, for me () carries the meaning of 'it seems to me that'.
