Correct use of the word "right"
I have a grammatical question about the use of "right". If I want to say "My english is good/correct", is it allowed to use "right"? For example "My english is right".
I had some discussions with my friend.. I would say that's not correct..
How is it real?
Thanks for your answer,

It's neither right nor wrong. If someone said your English was wrong, you could object that it was right, since these are natural antonyms.
