    made basic grounds

    Self practice
    Also, to study English helped to get a promotion point. I made a study group for them to study English, and that helped them to get a TOEIC grade. That also made basic grounds to study engineering.

    Is the underlined appropriate?

    Re: made basic grounds

    It's a bad habit to start a sentence with Also if nothing came before.

    Perhaps:

    Studying English helps you get a promotion point.

    Perhaps:

    I created a study group for them to study English. That helped them get a favorable TOEIC grade.

    Perhaps:

    That helped prepare them for studying engineering.

    That established the groundwork for studying engineering.

    I believe that's what you're trying to say.

    It's my bedtime now.
