Editing the paragraph and explaining the mistakes with examples – Must read




One of our active members of the group, has written the following paragraph, which is indeed excellent

But, there are few mistakes.
Let’s find them

I was born in 02 July 1992. I came from extremely poor farming family. My elder sisters and parents are always tired and can barely work in the rice field. We are always had unhappy time because we cannot earn our income to afford our lives. My father is often unwell, 65 years, and my mother is 63 years but they are very old because of the hard job. In my family, it has six children, together eight members.

I am the only child who has an opportunity to attend the school and keep going at the University. All of my siblings didn’t have the opportunity to complete the high school due to the family’s financial problems. When I was 10 years, I never stayed at home at night. I had to go out to hunt fish, bird, snake, Rat, and any mores. My mother’s always worried about me but she could not say because our family needed food every day. My older sisters never relaxed at home after rice field season finished.

Overall, your English is excellent  but there are few mistakes in the paragraph
and I have explained in the following way

Your first sentence:-

I was born in 02 July 1992 (wrong)

I was born on 02 July 1992 (correct)

I have explained the use of “In” and “On” here

Read this post, where I have explained the use of “In” and “On”




4th sentence

We are always had unhappy time because we cannot earn our income to afford our lives. (wrong)
We are always unhappy, because we cann’t earn our income afford to afford our lives (correct)
(you shouldn’t use had”

I have also explained the use of “has”, “have” and “had” here

5th sentence

they are very old because of the hard job. (Wrong)
They are too old for the job which is hard
or
They are very old and they can’t do the hard job




6th sentence

In my family, it has six children, together eight members. (wrong)

We are eight members, our parents and 6 children

10th sentence:-

I had to go out to hunt fish, bird, snake, Rat, and any mores (wrong)

I had to go out to hunt fish, bird, snake, rat etc . (correct)
or
I had to go out to hunt fish, bird, snake, Rat and many more (correct)

11th sentence:-

My mother’s always worried about me but she could not say because our family needed food every day (wrong)

My mother is always worried about me but she could not say because our family needed food every day.

Apostrophe is used before noun only
For example:-
Mother’s book (It means the book belongs to mother)
father’s pen (Pen belongs to father)

Hope, closely observe your mistakes

Do you know who the best player is ? B. Do you know who is the best player ?




One of my readers

Tito Dwi Yuliyanto

has asked me the following question:-




Which one is correct ?
A. Do you know who the best player is ?
B. Do you know who is the best player ?

My lecturer said that both of them are correct because the answers will be
A. The best player is Robert.
B. Robert is the best player.




 

 

Here is the detailed answer with THREE LIVE EXAMPLES, so as to help you step-by-step

The correct answer to the query will be

Do you know who the best player is?

There is an easy step:-

Create a question which will be “Who is the best player”

Now, as you insert in the sentence “Do you know ” then the order of the question will change , because it doesn’t remain a DIRECT QUESTION
So, the answer will be

Do you know who the best player is>

The principle is that when the question (Who is the best player) is inserted in another clause, then it doesn’t remain a direct question. So, it doesn’t take the order of question mark.

 

Example – 1

I am also giving another example:-

Do you know where the pencil is?
or
Do you know where is the pencil?

Here, the first question is correct

Why?
Because,

I am giving you the easiest of examples:-

First create a question mark of the sentence which will be
Where is the pencil?
Now, as you insert in the interrogative question mark
the order of the question “Where is the pencil” will change to “Where the pencil is”

So, the answer will be

Do you know where is the pencil?

 

 

 

Example – 2

Do they know where is the house?
or
Do they know where the house is?

The second sentence is correct
Why?
Because

“Where is the house?” will change to “where the house is” when inserted to
Do you know where the house is?

Yes, so the correct answer will be
Where the house is

 

 

Hope, you get to know the answer:-

Writing a FAREWELL speech for your BEST FRIEND

Good Morning / Afternoon / Evening Everyone,

This is a special moment for all us and personally, it means to me even more as this Farewell party is for the person who hasn’t been just my best colleague , but my best friend as well.
Yes, he is going to join another organization.



As I speak, I get emotional and recount the happy and sad moments, we had together.
How, we stood for each and other in our difficult times, and how we spent the weekends together amidst lots of
naughtiness and fun.
I still remember his care about me , when I was ill. He literally spent the whole night for me, taking care, as I was feeling restless



We used to hang out together to have dinner and in those days, when we were too tired to go out, we used to randomly decide to cook chicken and other dishes and invite other friends.
The hype and hoopla over “who will cook” and “who will wash utensils” are still fresh in our minds, and this is what has made our friendship stronger.

Yes, such memories are going to be in my mind forever. The feeling that he is going, is still sinking in my mind, and I wish that it couldn’t be true.

Well, here’s me wishing All the best and ALL the success in your life.




May you prosper and grow with every phase in life.
Yes, don’t forget to invite me in your wedding.
I will come even crossing thousands of kilometers too.

Best of Luck

You need to realise, that in REMINDER LETTERS, there is certain degree of “politeness” which you have to show.

It is important to include “REMINDER”, in the subject line, as many forget, giving the impression to the reader, that it is the first time.

You can’t be impatient. Believe it or not, your words have to be extremely  specific and careful as you have take full responsibility of writing the email.

Therefore, I am suggesting you certain ways to write a reminder letter

I understand that are you occupied with the work, but there is a gentle reminder, which seeks your immediate attention—————————————————————-

In Letter of Reminder, you need to make sure to provide complete list of information, with regards every little thing, such as time, date, place, purpose and deadline etc. This is done, so as to avoid the reader to check and cross from other sources. In short, your letter should itself, carry the whole details.

As it is a reminder letter, so mention in the subject line “REMINDER”. If you think, that a confirmation is needed, then politely ask for the same as well. 🙂




You need to mention the following things:-

1. Mention the word “Reminder” in the subject line
2. If there is any event happening, then mention the date
3. If there is anything else, then politely tell him/her that it is your second or third time to reach out to you
4. Reason for reminding him, but be polite

 




Now, I am creating a letter for you:-

Subject (Polite reminder to the event happening on Q date )

Respected Sir/Ma’am,

This is Arpit Sharma, Sr.Consultant requests for your time to the upcoming meeting which is going to be held next month on 29th June, 2018.
