Am I good enough in English to write at MyLot?
August 21, 2008 9:40am CST
I'm always ask myself this question when I write in English. Am I good enough in English to write here. Some time I just write without thinking about it. But in the most time I keep myself thinking about it. So my friends, what do you think? Can I go on writing here in English? or I need to learn English grammar first before writing?

Hi Nizhama2 I think you are doing really well with your English here. English is my first language and I manage to do heaps of typos (from typing too much) and a lot of my postings end up having quite bad English in them anyway. So you are certainly doing as well as many English speakers here. I think most of us can also work out what people without English as a first language are trying to say, and occasionally we might ask for more explanation. If I was trying to discuss this in another language that was a second language for me, I wouldn't do it nearly as well as you are doing it in English, that's how I always look at the posting by people with English as the second language. You are all doing so well!

Thanks so much Nizhama, that is very sweet. It is a very good idea of yours to practise English here and I will pass that on to other people who may want to practice English. I know it is one thing to learn some vocabulary in a language, but far more difficult to have a conversation in the language!

You most certainly are! This site will help you immensely improve on it too. My wife is doing exactly the same thing and even after just a few weeks here her English and grammar has improved dramatically! Keep at it and good on you for having a go!
