Well, you better start brushing up on your English. The best way to learn is to actually be around a community that will speak English with you 24/7. If you make grammatical errors, they can correct you and guide you to the right path. English is an easy language to learn, even if it is hard to perfect.

I think it will depend on your environment. I was friends with English-speaking kids when I was in Grade 4, and spent my school life with them until high school, so you get what I mean. In my opinion, the way you write English is still better compared to some.

We Filipinos does not take it a problem because we are teached to speak english from nursery to college thats why we are all prepared internationally. So i can say that all Filipinos are globally competitive.

getting used to write using the said language is the hardest thing to do. harder than speaking. i used to interract with the native speakers most of the time though the written is a long shot. i never tried to exchange with them other than business purposes which the contents are being repeated. like a template and just a matter of patching and filling. so, it is monotonous no new things added. wherein, if we try to communicate with them written not only to mingle and interract with them, i think that is the best.

I think they should understand your situation. Your country's primary language is not English right? It is their problem if they criticize badly the speeches with wrong grammars of you. Since there are mixed nationalities in just one company, it should be a consideration. Of course you may always be embarrassed. But you and the will get used to it.
