    Default clumsy?

    Hi,

    What does "clumsy"mean? I have read it on the forum "is my English clumpsy?". Is it difficult to understand?

    Thanks

    Clumsy is like 'awkward'- it doesn't mean wrong, but it suggests that it doesn't sound very natural. A 'clumsy' person is one who is accident-prone.
