    grammar mistakes or structure mistake?

    Dear teacher,

    I have been practising my writing for the last 20 weeks now and would like to find out where I am at. I wrote a short email and attached it for your review. It would be grateful if you could highlight and correct the mistakes if any for me.

    Also provide some feedback on which area of grammar I need more concentration.

    Thanks

    Please quote the email in the body of your post. Many members are understandably reluctant to open files/documents from unknown sources.

    I'm sorry, but I won't open attachments. Too many viruses out there.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Then I am afraid that most of us can't help you.

    Re: grammar mistakes or structure mistake?

    You could screenshot the Word doc and attach it to a post here as a jpg. As far as I know, that means the text won't turn up on Google but we will still be able to click on the jpg (which some of us might do) and read your text. However, it isn't very practical as we won't be able to quote and correct your piece on our own screens.

    If you are determined to leave your piece as a .docx attachment, then I doubt you will get any assistance.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Can one copy and paste text from Word to the forum?

    Yes, but not without allowing the engines to crawl it.

    My ignorance of internet vocabulary is so great that I don't know if there is a typo there or not. Whether there is or not, I don't understand it.
