    You could begin by looking at English writing and emulating the basic mechanics. Like starting each sentence with a capital letter. Capitalizing "I" and all proper nouns. Leaving one space after a period or other end-of-sentence punctuation mark.

    Here is how your post should look:

    Hi.

    My name is Saima. I need help with grammar. My writing skill is very weak. I want to study for the IELTS exam but the problem is that I cannot write essays. Please - I need help. I will be very grateful.

    Here are the rules of written English:

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

    You are still giving the teachers the same problems by not following their advice about starting a sentence with a capital letter, using punctuation marks, spaces, etc.

    Re: weak grammer and structure making

    Saima,

    The IELTS is a difficult academic exam. If you are having problems understanding the responses here, then you are a long way from the English level required to pass it. In my experience as an ESL instructor, it can takes months and even years of intermediate or advanced English study to pass. We cannot teach you in a thread.

    Here is some basic advice:
    - Start studying basic English punctuation rules. This is critical to comprehension.
    - Read and write some English each day.
    - Choose an interesting academic subject and find a textbook in English.
    - Consider extra English lessons.

    Good luck.
