    Post My Application

    Option1: I appreciate to continue giving your enthusiastic support for my candidacy, your treat of my application interestingly.

    Option2: I appreciate my candidacy getting your earlier enthusiastic support, and that my application will be treated interestingly as you used to.

    I appreciate your help in proofreading the above two options.

    Still working on that email? It's going to be a masterpiece!

    Thanks Charlie.

    Is there any equivalent to the word "interestingly"? I wanted to say he was so interested in my application.

    "Has earned my interest", I would like to talk about future so can we make it " I will be glad that my application will still earn your interst"

    I don't think so. And it's not a word that I recommend that anybody use. Ever.

    I wanted to say he was very interested in my application.

    Why?

    "Has earned my interest", I would like to talk about future so can we make it " I will be glad that my application will still earn your interest"

    I'm afraid that's gibberish.

    Do you really think that telling him something he already knows is going to endear you to him? You don't need to tell him what he is and isn't interested in.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Few English words have exact equivalents.

    I wanted to say he was so interested in my application.

    "Has earned my interest", I would like to talk about the future, so can we make it "[no space]I will be glad that my application will still earn your interest"?

    Using will does not make sense. You are already glad, and it has already earned his interest.
    You can say "your treatment of my application" or "your interest in my application."

    Combining them is difficult and unnecessary. Keep it simple. And as we say in the US, don't lay it on too thick. (You can Google: lay something on thick definition.)

    Re: My Application

    Economist2010, you haven't been following my advice. (Or anybody else's for that matter.) I wouldn't make a suggestion if I didn't think it was a good idea.

    We expect people to improve. We don't want to keep making the same corrections over and over.

    Here are two sayings you might want to learn if you don't already know them. Don't beat a dead horse. Don't bite off more than you can chew.

    Eco might be discouraged because we don't always agree with him.

    Are you still here, Eco?
