    continue to

    Are the following sentences grammatically correct and natural?

    1. If you don’t remember who I am, please continue to read my introduction below (my article).
    2. I would like to introduce my profile.

    Re: continue to

    The sentences are grammatically correct, but neither one sounds very natural. I think you would have to provide some context for us to help you further.

    Re: continue to

    I wouldn't say that someone "introduces their profile".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: continue to

    I rewrote the two sentences as following. Are they better?

    1. If you don’t remember who I am, please read my introduction in my article below.
    2. I would like to introduce myself.

    1. If you don’t remember who I am, please read my introduction in [the] article below. [Sounds more fluent and makes sense.]


    2. I would like to introduce myself. [:D Much better!]

    I'm not sure why you have bracketed "the" in sentence 1. It is required. "... please read my introduction in the article below".

    Re: continue to

    Again, both new versions are grammatically correct. Number 2 is very clear. Number 1 is somewhat ambiguous; do you mean the introduction to the article or an itroduction of yourself in the article? If it is the latter, you might say "read my profile."
