    Re: please help

    I'm sorry, but none of your three sentences make sense. I presume that what you mean to say in your first sentence is "Can you check for me that the sentence below is correct?"
    However, you then go on to show two sentences; neither of which I can decipher without knowing a lot more about the context.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    Not a teacher

    Please check for me if the sentence below is correct.

    Could you please change currency for me from SGD to MYR?
    I am attached to XXX office.

    (I do not undertstand how changing of currency is related to which office you are attached to since you said 'because'. Money changers may ask for address sometimes)

    Please refer to the details clouded below. (I presume the amount of the money is shown)

    Hello, tedmc.
    May I ask what 'clouded below' means? I've never heard/read the 'cloud' used in that way.

    fifie_danny, you cannot go on giving your threads the same, useless title.

    A better title for this thread would have been Could you please change SGD to MYR?

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'

    OK, maybe that is a local term which we are used to when dealing with technical drawings.
    Where there is a part of a drawing do be amended, it is a common practice to draw a 'cloud' around the area to highlight it, to draw attention to the area.
    I realise that it is not a standard term. 'To mark out' or 'to highlight' would be better.
