    How much should I show?

    Hi,

    Suppose I am going to apply for a student visa. As I have to show an amount of balance I want to send an email to the school where I will be studying asking the amount I have to show.

    How much should I show in my bank account?
    How much amount should I show in my bank account?

    Are my questions fine?

    "How much money do I need to have in my account to qualify for a student visa?"

    Thanks Bhai, but I really wanted to use "amount" in that sentence. How can I use "amount" in a context?

    It would not be natural to use "amount" in that sentence. There are many ways that you can use the word, try writing some other sentences using it.

    WOw! Rover you have given such a useful website. Thank you so much. In future I won't have any problem to find sentences for words.

    Re: How much should I show?

    Don't write to the school asking how much money you need to provide evidence of. Look at the information on the student visa application or call the embassy/consulate of the country where you want to study and ask them for that information.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
