    Try:

    Somebody who is illiterate cannot learn from books. Instead, he can only learn from his own experiences.

    Do you get the idea?

    No, I have a competent exam in few months for the job of assistant commissioner. My foremost task is to improve my English language. I had gone for couple of essay classes and payed money. But ironically, they didn't even have few minutes to check properly.

    Re: Please check my essay and point out the errors thanks.

    So, is it essay writing that you're worried about or your overall command of English?

    Am I making too many corrections/suggestions? Because I can stop.

    What's the format of that exam? Is it essay based?

    I've asked on the support forum if it's OK for you to post them here.

    Re: Please check my essay and point out the errors thanks.

    You can click "Thanks" or "Like" to show that you approve of a post. In fact, I asked the question I asked because I wasn't getting any likes.

    (I wanted to make the correction teechar made, but I thought maybe they really do call it a "competent exam". (Probably not. The term "competency exam" makes more sense.)
