Hi all;

My friend wants to go abroad for education. But he hasn't got enough money. I tell him:

I want to complete rest of your tuition fee

This the right way to say it?

Thanks in advance

    No, not really. "I'll give you the rest of your tuition fee" might do it. Or, "I'll make up the balance of your tuition fee."

    No, that doesn't work. :(

    You need either "I'll lend you the rest of you tuition fee(s)" or "I'll give you the rest of your tuition fee(s)" depending on whether you want him to repay you or not.

    May I say:

    I want to give you the rest of your tuition fee

    Because I don't know whether she'll accept or not

    Yes, that's fine, but here's a slightly softer version: "I'd like to give you the rest of your tuition fee."
