    Re: Grammar

    I had re-written my essay to make it better, please correct it if there are any incorrect grammar.

    Thanks.


    Nowadays, computers are in very wide use all over the world. By using computers people can make
    friends, share information, learn things and study together. And you can say that computer can do
    everything for you. Now in looking back, about ten years ago I learned how to use computer, this time
    I had a lot of problems because everything was new to me. So I asked my farther for help, luckily he know how to use it, he taught me the basic and every time he taught me I totally got it. I was happy with that, soon after I familiarized myself with computer, and now I can use it whenever I want to.
    But now, I can say that I know everything about computer and realize that computer is very important in our life, computer has been using in hospital, school, science, etc. A lot of thing in our life cannot be executed or achieved if does not have computer.

    Re: Grammar

    Because you didn't know how to use computers, you asked your dad for help. Probably because you knew he could help.

    Are both sentences correct?

    The "s" makes all the difference.

    Re: Grammar

    Perhaps:

    I asked my father to teach me how to use computers. He taught me what I needed to know.

    I practiced and practiced, and now I'm really good at it. I can tell you anything you want to know about computers.
