    Can I use 'overly' instead of 'very'?

    My sweetest and respected teachers,
    1 : "I sit on the swing and you pull it backwards then leave it.It will automatically move from backwards to forwards" correct?
    2 : "I wish to go to UK in the first or second week of April" correct?
    3 : "I'm overly ugly" "I'm overly sorry" correct?

    1. When I sit on the swing and you pull it backwards, it will automatically swing forwards.

    2. I would like to go to the UK in the first or second week of April.

    3. I'm overly ugly.

    4. I'm overly sorry. / I'm more than sorry.
