    Sentence 5 was very unnatural. A sentence that starts with "He is" can't be a question unless you add a comma and a tag-on question, like "He is a teacher, isn't he?"
    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.

    Re: Do you have extensive knowledge in interacting with people

    Once you've done that, you'll understand why I've changed this thread title too.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
