    Cool gain subtlety

    Hello!

    I can speak English but I would like to be more subtle sometimes.

    Can I say that I'd like to "gain subtlety"?

    Cheers
    Will

    Cool Re: gain subtlety

    Thank you Tdol.

    Could I say: "I still need help in order to gain accuracy and consistency" (in English). ?

    Thank you
    Will
