    Thank you.
    Hello, and welcome to the forum.

    If you post a piece in English we will comment. However, please don't post it in your own language as well. Just post it in English and we will help by pointing out any errors in spelling, grammar or punctuation.

    You will notice that that is what I have done above (in red).

    When you post, please remember:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter
    - End every sentence with a full stop (or question mark, exclamation mark)
    - Always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular)

    If you remember to do that, your posts will be much easier to read and we won't have to make so many simple corrections.

    I have a different point of view to emsr2d2 on this.
    If you want to post both versions, do so; but post it on the Other Languages sub-forum, with a title indicating the non-English language. However, the disadvantage of this is that you will only get comments from Persian speakers, whose English (typically) won't be as good as that of the teachers here. However, you might find someone who picks up obvious mistranslations; you can then revise your text, and post it here.

    Sorry, I should have said not to post it in both languages in this particular section of the forum. I couldn't remember what the correct section was so thank you Raymott - Other Languages would be the place for it.
