Welcome to the forum.

This site might help you.

Also, please note the amendments I have made to your post. Please remember the following when posting on the forum:

- Start every new sentence with a capital letter.
- End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.
- Always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular).
- Capitalise proper nouns (ie English).
- Do not capitalise common nouns (ie teacher).
- Remember to use apostrophes where necessary.
