You shouldn't be too worried about faulty grammar or spelling here because the Guidelines say that we should not criticise people's English. However, since you have asked for corrections in this case, here is the way that I would rewrite your post in correct English: "I would request mylotters to correct me if I make mistakes in grammar or in sentence formation. This is a respectful request, so that I might enhance my vocabulary." This still sounds a little formal because it is not the way that most people would speak. It would be more natural to say. "May I ask mylotters to correct me if I make mistakes in grammar or in my sentence construction. I would like to increase my vocabulary and my knowledge of English." Notes: 1) "request" tends to be formal and the sort of 'jargon' used in business letters. It's better to use "ask". 2) Note the spelling of 'grammar' 3) Vocabulary refers only to the words one knows or uses. 4) You wouldn't normally use the adjective "kind" in this context. If someone else were asking about your health, you might thank him for his "kind request" but you wouldn't normally call your own request "kind"!

@vaishu0106 You can always used 'kind' of someone else's action! I suppose that it's more to do with 'politeness' that we don't usually describe our own actions as 'kind', though we can say something like: "I was feeling kind, so I gave the beggar a coin" or "I felt it was only kind to stop the old lady from getting off the bus whilst it was moving."
