    Hi this is one of your students and I am studying in New Zealand and I have been put into ESA for my English improvement and said that now I can go to main stream English. Can you please help me choose what you think I should work on for better English

    Welcome to the forum.

    Based on the errors above, you need to work on your word order and on creating natural sentences, rather than sentences that sound as if they might have been directly translated from your native language.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Note that "mainstream" is one word.
    What does ESA stand for?

    You could begin by studying punctuation. Correct English requires appropriate punctuation.
