    well-known to them---------money/expense

    Hi,
    Could you please look at the following sentence if I have used appropriate adjective according to the context? Also please check if the sentence is grammatically okay and if it sounds natural to you.

    "As I am well-known to them, have been with them for years and have boar a good character, they always help me with my education."

    Also please look at the this sentence. Could I use "expense" instead of "money" in this context or is there any good word to use for "money"?

    "They have given me all the money/expense for my trip."

    Thanks,

    In future, please ask unrelated questions in separate threads.

    May I know what is the unrelated question that I have asked? I really do not understand what the wrong I have done.

    Can't you see that the two questions in your first post are not at all related?

    The second question has nothing to do with the first.

    Oh I am sorry. But I put the two sentences just to get them checked. It's okay. I won't do that in future.
