Helo again. Is this sentence grammatically correct:

"In fact this practice has been long established in other countries giving much desirable results."

Almost, but it should read, "......giving many desirable results."

"results" is a countable noun so we use "many". Had it been uncountable like, say, "publicity", then it's OK to use "much".

I believe you mean "very desirable results".

Yes, thank you. I mean "very". Should I write "very desirable results"? Does it sound natural in English?
