    I paid £50 for my report to get checked and corrected, was a bit unsure whether this worth doing. My english isn't bad but it's not the best.

    Anyone else use a service like this?

    I'm a bit biased as in my spare time I do a bit of freelance proofreading and editing. I've never used a service like this myself, but for some people it's a viable option as they may not know anyone with that kind of expertise and so it is their only option if they wish for their grammar, sentence structure, and punctuation, to be on point.

    We live in a free market society, so if someone is willing to pay £50 for a proofreading and editing service then yes, it is "worth" that.
