    as a favour

    Teacher, I am wondering if I am using "as a favour" in this sentence correctly.

    My friend told me that she received massage treatment from Mary who was doing it as a favour to her.

    Re: as a favour

    Yes, that's grammatical. Whether you're using correctly depends on what you think it means though. It sounds right.

    Re: as a favour

    I am not a teacher.

    I would have said, '...as a favour for her.'
