    Question Two sentences

    Hi, are the following sentences correct?

    This fantastic programming language offers many valuable features, each being of great importance in a problem of data grouping; it enables to apply modern techniques easily and, at last but not at least, very efficiently. For this reason, I think that this language is worth to be recommened to all participants of the course.

    Thanks in advance,
    Nyggus

    Re: Two sentences

    each being of great importance in a problem of data grouping- each of great importance to the problem of data grouping. (the sounds better to me- how many problems are there?)
    it enables to apply modern techniques- it enable the application of modern techniques/it makes it possible to apply modern techniques
    at last but not at least- last but not least
    worth to be recommened- recommending

    Thanks, tdol
    As for your two corrections: "it enables..." and "recommending": were my options incorrect or just yours sound better?

    Re: Two sentences

    Incorrect- enable + infinitive (enanable + pronoun + infinitive ) and worth is followed by a gerund.
