    No matter

    Hi there,

    Can we use the phrase "no matter" in an essay? Is it formal? To give an example, "No matter how much efforts a government makes, there should be contributions from the public in the conservation of the environment.". We can hear "no matter" used a lot in our daily conversations. But I am not sure if it is okay to put in the writing cases.

    Re: No matter

    "No matter" is not a problem, but pluralizing "effort" is a problem.
