    Re: using kindly or kindin polite sentences

    I would say 'Could you please send me a reply?', but I am not a teacher.

    Thank you.
    Welcome to the forum.

    Using "kindly requested to" isn't used much in English letters. As Matthew said, we're more likely to say "Please send me your reply". You can also say "Please reply" - it's simpler and straight to the point.

    Please see my corrections to your post above. It's important to follow these 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".
    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, colon, semi-colon, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, semi-colon, question mark or exclamation mark.

    You can write "okay" or "OK" but not "ok".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
