    Smile Are these two sentences grammatically correct?

    1. I am writing to to recommend "name" "surname" for admission in this Exchange Program.

    2. I am pleased to recommend one of my best students, "name" "surname", into your exchange program.


    Thanks in Advance ;)

    Why the capital letters in the first?

    In addition to Tdol's comments and questions, please note my amendments to your (unnecessary) final sentence. There was no need to capitalise "advance". You omitted the full stop at the end. You tried to make your own emoticon/smiley - please don't do that. You can click on the button in the toolbar and select one.

    There is no need to put "Thanks in advance" at the end of any post. For all you know, you might get no responses or you might get responses that you are not grateful for. Of course, we hope that neither of those things happen but, at any rate, wait until you see the responses and then, if appropriate, click the Like button to show your gratitude.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I think if I write "Thanks" beforehand there is more chance that someone will reply my question.
    P.S thank you for your advice.

    That's not right.

    You should reread what ems told you in post #3:

    You omitted the full stop at the end. You tried to make your own emoticon/smiley - please don't do that. You can click on the button in the toolbar and select one.


    Additionally, there is no need to write a new post to say thank you. Simply click the Like button on any posts you find helpful. It means that we don't have to open the thread again to read your new post and then find that it doesn't include any new information or an additional question.
