    This is a very helpful site . Very well done work

    • Pragya says:

      In the second sentence that you worte, it should be “Well done” or “Good Work” not ” Very well done work”, this site is of no use if you don’t know how to even thank people correctly or without any grammatical mistakes.

      • Manjusha says:

        It is okay. Let’s all learn from our mistakes. This site is for people whose English isn’t perfect yet 🙂

      • Jyoti says:

        Actually, it’s alright to say ” Very well done work.” And, by the way, YOU wrote ” …..No use if you don’t know how to EVEN thank …”
        That is wrong! It’s actually, “…..No use if you don’t even know how to thank people…..”
        Nonetheless, This website is a guide for people to learn and better their English. DO NOT MAKE FUN OF THEM OR INSULT THEM.
