    I have sent an email to a company of some product I have .
    and they asked me this question and I really can't figure out what does it mean .. this is the question :
    "it should be a pleasure if you can send a picture of your shop with our First Class, we could put in our Facebook page."

    Your correspondent is also not a native English speaker. What they wrote does not make sense.
    I am not a teacher.

    Welcome to the forums, nour.

    Thank you for providing the context. I'm sorry that it doesn't help us in this case. As Goes said above, it doesn't make any sense. But often, providing enough context will help us make sense of a strange collection of words.
    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.

    It's not a question. It's a statement. And no, it doesn't make sense. Is that exactly what it said?
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    Thank you for providing even more information. Unfortunately, it still doesn't make any sense. Is the machine called the "First Class" model or anything like that?

    Anyway, it seems they want a picture of you standing next to the machine, maybe using it, so they can show you as a happy customer.

    Note my corrections above. You must start every sentence with a capital letter and end every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.

    Their reply makes no sense at all, I'm afraid. You will have to ask them what they meant.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
