Dear all,

1.Please tell me if the following sentence is correct or not?

I really thanks for blah blah..........

Can i use the "thanks" instead for the "thank" in the sentence above?

2.In the case , My friend and I were born in july but on diffrent days. How can I describe that fact
by using the word "birthday".

"Our birthdays are on July" hmmm it seems wrong because as I know we never use the preposition "on"
before "july"

"Our birthdays are in July" It sounds wrong also, because birthday is "date",

Please tell me what I should say in that case.

Thanks in advance,

RUDKY

This doesn't work grammatically.

If you want to be really formal you could say: "I would really like to thank you for ....", but this
sounds a bit over the top to me. Much better and still usable in a formal context is "Thank you very
much for ..."

The second is correct, because your birthdays are in the month of July.

Correction:

[q1]> In the case , My friend and I were born in july but on diffrent days. How can I describe that fact[/q1]
[q1]> by using the word "birthday".[/q1]

If my friend and I were born in July but on different days, how can I describe that fact using the
word "birthday"?

The comma between the clauses is optional, but I prefer to use it here.
