And I suppose I also do a lot of grammaticals errors on that also (So much questions...so less answer) as usual...lol
> I need some english courses and a boyfriend...can I get those in a 2 for 1 package???
haha. Well I need some French courses and a boyfriend, so I'm looking for the same type of package :))
PLEASE don't worry about your English!! Your grammar is good and no worse than half of the people in the U.S.-seriously. I once had a teacher from China who had better English than about 90 percent of Americans. I recognized this the day I met her, and when I remarked about it later-she was shocked I had said that; but, it was no exaggeration. She had almost failed her English courses originally and she revealed how it hurt her self-esteem. She later got her PhD in linguistics. It made her very happy to hear that from an American.
Most people don't bother to check their grammar and spelling in informal settings/online communication. I've noticed on other forums, the grammar Nazis often call this out, contending language is being cheapened. However, it is inevitable that our communication style is changing as we evolve alongside technology. There is a lot of research going on to study how/if internet communication is changing our language dynamics or altering our cognition.
Besides, in a few years, China will be the country with the greatest number of English-speaking people. "Chinglish" might evolve to be the world language. Lots of Chinese are emmigrating to Africa, too, investing and starting businesses; spreading the language around and all.
No worries-you are a breath of fresh air here :))
Au revoir (see I remember 4 French words-impressive, huh?)
