I see many here want help with learning the english language. I also see that many offer great sites and other options for learning. Yet still, many are asking for personal help and only get a great link or resource of information instead of that personal level of help and guidance. Learning anything new requires confidence and support. So with that being said, I would like to offer help to others who are wanting to learn english. I am not a master of the english language, nor do I have a degree. I can only offer my personal knowledge and guidance, as I hope this will get you started in your venture to learn english. You do not need to post comments such as "i want to learn", "will you help me?", I will try to help anyone as much as possible. There are many posts on learning english, some asking for corrections in posts, some asking specific questions, with so many people on different levels of learning it will probably be a little chaotic at first, but I will help where I can. Let's try to keep this specific discussion at a beginning level to lessen the confusion. I look forward to hearing from you all, making new friends, and helping those that I can with their venture to learn english.

I would be honored to have you as a friend. And yes, you are correct in saying, ...practice again and again. Practice makes perfect they say. If I can help you in any way, please let me know. (If I may offer you a suggestion with your own post) "I am the person who what to improve my english." = simply saying "I also want to improve my english." ('also' implying that you are 'one of those people who would like to improve their english' from the earlier discussion)would suffice or "I am one of those people who would like to improve my english." Although we are all guilty of it, it is not typically good grammar to begin a sentence with 'and'. Also you must be careful not to make sentences which run-on. This is a very long sentence which actually could make 2 or more shorter, better sentences. There are other corrections I could suggest, but do not want to overwhelm you. Hope this helps!

another tip for others out there: When to use 'a' or 'an'. use 'a' before words beginning with a consonant - (b,c,d,f,g,h,j,k,l,m,n,p,q,r,s,t,v,w,x,y,z) a car, a ball, a ship, etc. use 'an' before words beginning with a vowel - (a,e,i,o,u) an apple, an elephant, an orange, etc. Also the words am/is/are & what/who?: (full version)I am..you are..he is..she is..they are (short version)I'm..You're..he's..she's..they're what's = what is...it's = it is..who's = who is What = things Who = people This should help with using "it's", "what's", "who's", and "a" or "an". (if anyone needs more samples for practice, just let me know.) If I were holding an apple and would ask you "what's this?", your response would be___ ____ ____. "what's this?"(car) = _____ _______ _______. "what's this?" (jelly beans) = _____ _____ ____. "who's this?" (if I show you a picture of a movie star.) = ___ ____ ____ ___.

Let me also join hands in helping you synuay. I am an English tutor myself and I always take pleasure in helping those who wish to learn the language, especially those whose speaking language is not English.

welcome aboard! I love learning, and helping others learn. I recently took it upon myself to learn thai. So I know the frustrations of not having an actual person to whom you can ask questions. It's challenging in itself, and then on your own it can be excruciating! Hopefully with some thoughtful suggestions and coaching we can help those seeking to learn or improve english.
