    please correct

    I wash by clothes either by hand or using machine.If I go for hand wash, I sqeeze out all the water from the clothes and put clothes outside(in the sun) to get the water soaked up.When the clothes are dried up i fold those clothes and the clothes are placed in the ALmarah.

    thanks

    Re: please correct

    I either handwash my clothes or use the washing machine. If I decide to handwash, I wring out all the water from the clothes and hang them outside in the sun to dry. When the clothes are dry, I fold them and place them in the almarah.
    What's an almarah?

    Re: please correct

    sorry I mispelled Almirah.

    Is it correct to say

    I am a novice in cooking.

    As the water went inside the burner,I couldn't light up the cooking range.

    As there is no one to accompany me,why don't you leave your kid with me?
    or
    I'm alone at home.why dont you leave your kid along with me?

    Thanks

    We put dishes in the cupboard. We put clothes in the closet.

    Try:
    Because there was water inside the burner, I couldn't light the stove.

    Since there is no one to accompany me, why don't you leave your child with me?

    I'm at home alone. Why don't you leave your child with me?

    Hi soup in India one puts clothes in an Almirah
    In France one puts clothes in an Armoire.
    In England one puts clothes in a Wardrobe.
    Almirah is in the OED as an alternative use for Wardrobe
    In the US maybe you use closets but this does not necessarily apply to the rest of the (English speaking) world.
