    Post Please correct the paragraph

    I had been finding ways to improve my grammar, looking for a fast and easy way to improve my grammar. I had been reading newspaper all day long yet i my grammar is still not up to the standard, i stay in Singapore and my first language is mandarin normally i speak mandarin at home and english is my second language. I do speak english all the time and while come to english writing i always miss out some words that need to be use to form a proper sentence and everytime it sound so weird.

I live in Singapore and my first language is mandarin normally i speak mandarin Mandarin. I normally speak Mandarin* at home and english English * is my second language.

    A good try - a few points for punctuation:
    * I is always with a capital letter, even if it's not at the beginning of a sentence. Also, use a capital letter for nationalities: I am English. I read Mandarin books.

    We need to use commas to separate ideas for the reader. If we don't use them it can be difficult to follow the ideas in a sentence.

    live or stay? Stay is used for situations like holidays and temporary places eg. I am staying in that hotel; they are staying with their friends.
