    Please Correct it.

    Due to lack of English Language and Computer Skill, these girls could not get proper jobs. In this line instead of girls, "youth" can be fitted.

    Re: Please Correct it.

    Showing impatience like that, after only 20 minutes. is a sure way to discourage some people who might want to help. The people who answer questions here do so voluntarily, in their free time. Some of us don't react favourably to being told to hurry up because you are waiting.

    Hello.
    I'm not a native speaker, but it seems that you're in a hurry...
    Let me try to help you.

    If you are referring specifically to female children, I don't think the word 'youth' would work in your sentence.
    Please go to : youth - Definition and pronunciation | Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary at OxfordLearnersDictionaries.com

    P.S. I'm sorry, 5jj. You were much faster. I shouldn't have done this.. Please delete this post if it's inappropriate.

    I am not going to delete an attempt to help somebody. The fact that I am a grumpy old curmudgeon doesn't mean everybody else has to be.

    @ nakash.

    Due to lack of English Language and Computer Skills, these girls could not get proper jobs. In this line instead of girls, "youth" can be fitted'. '

    'Youth' cannot replace 'girls' in that sentence; 'young people' can, if that is what you meant.

    Was your second sentence meant to be a question? If so, you need to say something like "Can 'youth' replace 'girls' in this sentence?/ Is 'youth' possible in place of 'girls' in this sentence?
