Re: speaking english as a second language
If you live in the UK, you will have access to lots of written English. I am sure you have noticed that written English follows certain rules. It is important that you follow the same rules when posting on the forum:

I find it rather surprising that you have failed to follow these rules as your member profile says that your native language is French and French and follows the same rules.
One of the best things you can do is talk! Talk to as many people as you can, as often as you can. Talk to yourself in English. Have the TV or the radio on all the time in the background, without actually trying to actively listen to it. Find a language exchange program in your local area. Join a social club. Join a pub quiz team. Advertise on Gumtree to see if there is a native speaker nearby who wants to learn French and help each other.
Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
