    Default English writing

    |I'm not a native English speaker. As I sometimes do translation from my mother tone(Chinese) to English and pratice writing, can I post my translation and compositions in English here for teachers to emend my wording and correct mistakes?

    You can, though much will depend on quantity. This is an unpaid service, so huge amounts of text will generally not be dealt with, but people are always willing to help where they can.

    Dear Tdol,

    Thank you for your reply.

    Yes, I fully understand what you say.

    I really feel lucky and grateful to have this forum as a way to improve my English. In fact, I majored in Portuguese studies, and I wish my English to be as good as my Portuguese. I know the best way to achieve this is to write more, and be corrected by native speakers.

    Very nice to talk to you.

    Best regards.
