Hi,

Can anyone help to proof read if the following sentence (in point form) is correct in terms of grammer. Thanks!

If this is an instruction or tip or piece of advice (one of several bullet points), then it's correct. You might want to add a full stop because strictly speaking it is a fully-formed sentence, but in bullet points full stops are often not used.

Thanks Josef.
If I replace the word "encourage" with either "encourages" or "encouraging", is it correct ?
