    Hello
    Could anybody please take a look at this if it is OK?

    Thanks.
    Please see my amendments above in red. Remember the following rules of British English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Capitalise all proper nouns (English, Shakespeare, Hindi, Microsoft etc).
    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Emsr2d2's "rules of British English" also apply to most other varieties of English, including American English.

    Re: more of a scientist

    Apologies - that should have said "written English", not "British English".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
