    posts which contain the word

    Hi,

    Is "Posts which contain the word "challenge" are deleted. The purpose of this group is to teach or learn" correct?

    Re: posts which contain the word

    The first sentence seems OK to me, but I don't understand the second. Can you elaborate?

    I am learning and teachers are teaching me on this website. This is the purpose of the website. Be close to my sentence.

    Re: posts which contain the word

    We don't put a word in double quotes in a sentence inside double quotes. You need to put 'challenge' in single quotes.
    "Use 'challenge' like this."
    I don't understand your sentence either. What does "Be close to my sentence" mean?

    The purpose of this website is either to teach or to learn.

    Just check the above sentence if it's correct or not, please.

    This would be better:

    The purpose of this website is to teach and to learn.
    I am not a teacher.

    For the first one, try:

    Are posts which contain the word "challenge" deleted?

    For the second one, try:

    The purpose of this website is to bring teachers and learners together, right?

    It's not easy to see the connection between the two sentences- I see no reason why teaching and learning would involve deleting the word challenge. It's easy to see why that word could be a pet hate in some contexts, but I cannot see how that would further learning.

    That's what's fun about this forum. It's full of surprises. The learners come up with things I would never see anywhere else.
