who will check Grammar if we use to be incorrect?

Hello phanthuydhtn,

Each exercise on LearnEnglish has a 'Check answers' facility which you can see after you click 'Finish' (once you have answered the questions, of course!). You can also click 'Show answers' to see the key.

We do not correct posts in the comments sections on LearnEnglish. We have many thousands of users and we are a small team, so this kind of correction is not feasible. In addition, we see the comments sections as being for communication rather than language practice, so correction is not really in line with their purpose.

My family and I live in the flat. And we have not any animals. Unfortunately, my husband guess that the animal such as cats and dogs have to live in a big house. There are not in the flat. Couse of his thinking is cats and dogs must have enough freedom in their moving and doing. When the animals are limited at ones they will be squashed. But in my mind the animal made your owner more kindly, reliability and responsibility.

I love travelling. So each place, each country, I'm both in honour of its.
If I had a chance to move around the world, firstly I would like to work in Japan. This is the country in my dream. I admire Japanese. They are really kind, friendly and they always live up to their principles and the law. Living in Japan, we feel safe. No stealing, no traffic jam and no being late.
Although this country has a lot of natural calamity, their economy is very developed.
Beside, I also love their food, their culture and a lot of places in there.
Please correct my sentences. Thank you so much

Hello Kemist,

That's a nice text, but I'm afraid we don't offer the service of correcting texts. If we did, we'd have time for nothing else! If there's a specific phrase or sentence you'd like to ask about, please feel free. We only ask that you try to post it on a relevant page.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team
