    Do not born.

    "Poor people do not born with a silver spoon in mouth." Is it correct to say "Do not born?"

    Please check.

    You can't use "do".

    Re: Do not born.

    The end is wrong too. You need a word between "in" and "mouth". Can you work out what word you could use there?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
