I have been told by an English teacher that after the sentence

"This course will help me to be more relaxed and patient"

the following sentence is inadequate

"What will this course help you to?"

Can someone please explain why?

There are two all-purpose verbs: DO and BE; three if we include BECOME.

So:

What will this course help you to do?

What will this course help you to be?

This course will help me to climb mountains.
-- Say again? What will it help you to do?

Or

This course will help me to become a mountain climber.
--Sorry, I didn't hear all of what you said. What will this course help you to be?
