    Why can I help you in English?" Does it make sense?

    My dear and respected teachers,
    1: "Why can I help you in English?" Does it make sense?
    2: "Shoib Akhter has come back to the team OR in the team." Which one is correct?
    3: "Which language is this word?" OR "Of which language is this word?"
    4: "He backbites me OR he backbites against me OR he backbites on me."

    Actually, I can think of a situation where you could ask such a question, but it would definitely be more natural to say something like this:
    Why do you think I can help you with your English?
