Hello,

May I know where can I find/download good programs that help me to check or correct my grammar mistakes ?

I have a few so far but they are not as good as I expected /wanted.

Thank you.
Let's stay happy and healthy.

While there are many good applications that check spelling, something a computer can do, there are none that can adequately correct any but simple grammar mistakes, as the latter requires a rather high level of sophistication that all but the largest computers (and programs) lack. Moreover, grammatical mistakes would certainly change betweem, for example, formal and informal English styles.
So for the present, your best recourse is to read and use the standard books on grammar and whatever style sheet you need to use.
Regards,
John
