    Is my sentence correct? Please help thank you in advance :)
    Which single sentence are you referring to?

    Please note that we don't connect sentences with strings of dots as you have done.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: I need help to correct my grammar. Thanks in advance

    1. You need to separate these into multiple sentences.
    2. You need to capitalize her name.
    3. You need to capitalize the pronoun "I"
    4. Ask "Do you remember" not "Did you know" and end that sentence with a question mark.
    5. Now I've decided (not "i decided")
    6. There is no word "u." The word is "you."
    7. I've lost (not "i lose")
    8. What are they entire things in quotation marks?

    You have some nerve saying it's her fault in any way. YOU chose to ignore your friends - she didn't make you. It's not "your fault too" - it's YOUR fault.


    Make those corrections in a new post below and then we will look again.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: I need help to correct my grammar. Thanks in advance

    When Barb said you need to capitalise the name, she was referring only to the first letter. It should be "Farah".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    1. You used "words" so you need the third person plural verb "Are".
    2. We write either "OK" or "okay" but never "ok" or "Ok".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
