The reason why i come here is just that i want to improve my English and make some friends through mylot. But i find that some sentences in discussions and responses is wrote wrong in grammar (and maybe so are some sentences in what i wrote).I think it may do harm to ones who want to improve English through mylot. Why not point out incidentally where is wrong when we make our responses?

I applaud you for your noble cause for joining mylot, and I think that it is a place where you can learn a lot of things on top of language alone. I agree with you that some discussions and responses have quite bad grammar, and I wouldn't claim that my grammar and spelling are 100% correct all the time too. It certainly would be good if someone else could point out spelling or grammar mistakes made by other users so that we can all learn to improve on our English and make it a much better place for those who want to learn English to really learn proper English. The main barrier though is that mylot users are from all over the world, and some members are from countries that do not have English as their first language.

Yes, the main barrier you said actually exists. But i think what we need is to try our best.

Yeah, I'm always trying my best to make my post perfect in grammar and spelling. I always try to limit my mistakes to a maximum of one per post, and most of the time I check my post before submitting them.
