Hi Everybody, good wishes.I think this is good opportunity express oneself.

Hi Dasitha,

Perhaps one of your friends or someone in your family could help you find an English teacher where you live. If not, I would suggest asking at a local secondary school. If you still can't find a teacher, you might find an appropriate class at the British Council in Sri Lanka:

Good luck!

sir.
I have written a letter but i don't know whether it is correct or wrong(grammarticaly). I can send it to you.please correct it and send it to me and give me an address to send it.

Hello Dasitha,

I'm afraid we are too small a team to help members out in this way! It takes all of our time just answering comments, looking after the material here on the site and adding new material, and there's no way we can provide individual help of that kind. If you want someone to check your writing like that then I recommend you find yourself a teacher who will be able to go over it with you.

Best wishes,

In fact i would like to meet our president excellency Mahinda Rajapaksha. because he do his best to make our country heaven. And he loves little children and to our country.he is a good kind harted person.He is more sensitive. At the real sense of the word i love him very much.

Hello Juan,
We would use the preposition 'on'.  For example:
'It is on the Manchester - Liverpool road.'
'It is on the road from Manchester to Liverpool.'
