No. And "right" isn't spelled "rite."

You're going to stop there?
I'm not.

Welcome to the forum, sunniya. Please remember:

Always use a capital letter to begin a sentence.
Always use a capital letter for the first person pronoun I.
Avoid chatlish language. Write 'you' not 'u', 'want to' not 'wanna'.
Use only one question mark at the end of sentence.

Many of the people who answer questions in this forum are female, so it is not appropriate to start your post with 'Sir'.

How about I can't hear you? Is the problem the line or how loudly the person is talking?

Just say "I'm sorry, but I have to go," and end the call.

Try to use full sentences and real punctuation. A random number of dots is not the right way to go from one thought to the next, nor from one sentence to the next.

Thank you (no hyphen required). If the person is talking loudly and [STRIKE]its[/STRIKE] you [STRIKE]who[/STRIKE] don't want to talk, I can [STRIKE]and[/STRIKE] just say[STRIKE]ing[/STRIKE] something like that and disconnect your phone.

And [STRIKE]yups[/STRIKE] I will try to avoid chatlish language. [STRIKE]and[/STRIKE] The [STRIKE]foremost[/STRIKE] most important thing - can you please help me daily to gain some useful and better words with sentences to [STRIKE]let me know[/STRIKE] help me learn [STRIKE]just[/STRIKE] some fabulous English.

See my amendments in red.

- Start every sentence with a capital letter.
- Always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular).
- Always capitalise proper nouns (English, Spanish, London).
- End every sentence with the relevant punctuation mark.
- As we said, no chatlish. ("Yups" is not a proper English word.)
