Hello shadollahrenee,

Our English for Emails section might be helpful to you, but I suspect another course such as the British Council's Writing Better Emails course might be more useful for you. There is a full list of British Council courses at Future Learn on this page.

I hope you find what you're looking for; please let us know if there's any way we can help.

All the best,

Please tell if these sentences are correct grammatically and in other ways.I am working on a mini project as an intern.
"We are here to make people get their step in the right direction for becoming happier and more successful.
Be self-aware and have the capability to think with clarity."
i hope you will help.

Hello aneessiddique,

I would suggest the following:

We are here to help people move in the right direction to become happier and more successful.


We are here to help people take their first steps on the way to becoming happier and more successful.

The second sentence is fine.


Please note that LearnEnglish is a site for people studying the language and we generally focus on explaining aspects of the language rather than correction. If we tried to provide a checking or correction service we would have no time for anything else!


Best wishes,

To serve as a Preschool teacher in an organization where I can have growth opportunities and a healthy environment, to utilize my teaching abilities more effectively for benefit of the early learners and the organization.

Hello sid,

I think it's good, though you should say 'for the benefit of'. I might say 'environment and to utilize' and 'the benefit of the learners'.

Good luck!

Hi Mr peter / Hi Mr Kirk,

I was wondering whether I need to write down some statements or some words while I am listening or reading, to enhance my English vocabulary ,increase my lexical resources , and improve my skills, are this method good enough and can I gotcha a benefit or not? or just practicing via oral way like read in a loud voice only?

hopefully, you would get an idea from my question?
Thanks for your efforts
