    Possibility

    Our employers frequently suggest to us that it might be possible to have XXX from YYY at the same time.

    I change my mind.

    I want to change this sentence:

    I can't write "it might be possible" because:
    There is no that possibility now, but this possibility can be create.

    I would something like:

    Our employers frequently suggest to us to make a possibility to have XXX from YYY at the same time. <--- Is it correct ?

    Re: Possibility

    Once again, vogel, you are attempting to use language that is way above your level. I'm afraid it's not possible to correct your sentence - it's not possible to work out what you are trying to say. You need to start with short, simple sentences.

    Re: Possibility

    I suspect that the word "employers" is not the correct vocabulary choice here. Clients, perhaps? vogel, I think you are falling into the trap of using formal, complex vocabulary without strong basic grammar skills. The sentences don't make sense. With short, basic sentences using correct grammar, your ideas will be understood.

    Re: Possibility

    How dare you accuse us of not trying to help you! Several members have spent a fair time trying to help you. We have told you that you are trying to produce English at a level that is beyond your current ability, but you continue to ignore this.

    Whether you like it or not, vogel, your sentence makes no sense in English. It might help if you used actual words rather than XXX and YYY.

    OK, so maybe we will make a consent. I will write short sentences, and you will help me to transform them in one professional (buisness) sentence.

    We are not here to make agreements. If we can't make sense of your sentences and you are not happy with our best efforts to do so, you are free to submit them to another forum.

    That's a good plan. And remember, there's nothing wrong with short sentences. Long sentences are not necessarily more "professional" than short ones.
