    English help on this site?

    This is a question for the Russian speakers on the site: [/b]
    Do you feel that you are getting as much help with English as you need, or do the English speakers need to make more of an effort with corrections?

    Are you getting good and clear explanations for any questions that you may have about English?

    What can we do better to help you more with English?


    I will attempt to translate this message into Russian later, but just wanted to post about this now...

    Personally I get all the help I need.
    Just don't forget to correct our mistakes or things sounding clumsy /not native, because if not done, we suppose our mistakes as the legal correct English, which will cause other mistakes in future.. And if you know, that there was some tricky thing that caused the problem, explain it, please, at the same time.

    P.S. And, thanks for the question, Johanna. There are not too much people here, interested in such things.
    Another month ends. All targets met. All systems working. All customers satisfied. All staff eagerly enthusiastic. All pigs fed and ready to fly.

    Some "perfectionist" corrections. Everything you said was completely clear, but this is better and sounds much more native.

    Yeah, well I get such FANTASTIC help here but I am not sure all the Russian speakers are getting as much help as they need.

    I speak English as a second language myself, so I am more aware than "real" native speakers, of the difficulties and challenges. However since I studied English from a very young age, and have lived in the UK for almost 10 years., I now basically master it completely.

    Am also aware that a lot of people find themselves in a situation where they MUST learn English for career reasons, and that it can be an awkward and stressful experience.

    Suppose is perfectly okay there just needs "that".
