Friends, we all are on mylot.Our mother tongues are different.Here we use English to interact with each other. Do you feel mylot has helped you improve your writing skills in English? I feel so.English is not my mother tongue.I learned English at school,but mylot is the only platform where I first tried to express myself in this foreign language. What about you? Do you feel mylot has improved your English?

@Nawsheen I think,mylot helps us improve our knowledge of the language because here we use English practically.We chat in this language and gradually our writing skills get better.

English is nobody's mother's tongue (pun intended). It is just a medium of conversation. We don't speak English right after our birth, or any other language for that matter. The first syllable that a baby utters is maa, which is universal to every language. It can never be narrowed down to being a mother tongue. You could say that English is not your native lingo. And that x language is our native lingo. Well, mylot is a place to meet new people, irrespective of their languages or origin, and get on with them. English is a medium of conversation here, and what I mean by this is that, here, you see we're using a common language that's convenient to express ourselves. English being taught almost worldwide as the preferred language of communication and spoken by the many countries in the West (European Union included) as a native language, becomes indispensable. So, here we are: conversing in as much english as possible. :)

@shikharava All I asked is whether you feel,as I do,that using mylot has improved your writing skills in English.We all know very well that we have to use only one language on mylot and that language is English.

@shikharava No,my friend,I don't feel offended.There's nothing rude or offending in your response.But I'm so sorry to differ, to me English is a foreign language.We don't use it in our day to day life,and,honestly speaking,I can't express myself as impressively as I can in my mother tongue,HindI. Nobody speaks English in my family or friends circle or market.My friends prefer to use their mother tongues or HindI wherever they go....I respect your views, but am so sorry to disagree.

@else34 did my comment offend you, dear? I'm sorry if it did. I only said that you should not call English a mother tongue. You should call it a native language. That's why such a long explanation. Don't mind it though, I can be quite stoic at times.:)
