Hello trade,

I'm afraid this isn't the kind of service we provide. If you want to ask us about one of these sentences, telling us where you think the error is and why it's incorrect, we can help you with that, but our primary purpose is to help users with questions that are related to our website in some way.

All the best,

Hello Dr Kirk,

I'm confused about my use of verbs in this piece of writing. Please correct me, if the writing itself doesn't look grammatically OK thanks.

"Just doing what everyone does, never really makes a difference; but doing what no one has ever thought of (if morally acceptable and outstanding), I think that's what makes a huge difference. Because it will leave a trail for others to follow."

Hello Counsel,

I'm afraid we don't correct users' texts – we are simply too small a team – but I will say that your text looks correct and is intelligible. It's a nice idea!

Best wishes,

Hello ngominh,

It looks like this may be a problem with the version of Flash on your computer. Please visit Adobe and check that you have the most up-to-date version of Flash installed.

I hope that helps you.

okay. I got it :D

Hello Dr Kirk,

Please I'm always confused with this. E.g. if someone says something to me, but I can't make out what the person says. Should I say: 'you said what' or ' you say what'?

Ok very nice
Thank you

Hello Counsel,

There are many ways to ask this. A polite way of asking this is 'I'm sorry, I didn't understand. Could you please repeat that?' or even just 'Could you please repeat that?' In informal situations, you could say 'Sorry, what was that?'. Only with good friends would I recommend saying 'What did you say?'

To improve your conversational English, I'd highly recommend our Big City Small World series, in which you can find a lot of language like this.

Best wishes,

Hi Dr Kirk,

I'm completely confused with this song lyrics: "The Lord will bless someone today, 'it may be you, it may be I', it may be someone by your side." My concern is should it be 'it may be you, it may be I' or 'it may be you, it may be me'?
