Hello, can you please tell me is this sentence correct or not ? And why ? Emir offers to show the office to Anya

Hello guitardude,

Yes, that sentence is fine, grammatically speaking. Of course, whether or not it is appropriate will depend on the context in which it is used and the intention of the speaker.
