    Unhappy I've missed the language boat.

    In my attempt to be understood I use the very basic of words (English my native tongue) so as not to be misunderstood. Yet sometimes people assume I meant this or that...and I didnt. Its frustrating to say the least. Am I trying to hard to please others and be accepted in their life by trying to write a clear and basic letter?

    I love My English but I only use what I can understand of it. I also love simplistic writing and this is what I try to do...and still sometimes get misunderstood. I will never master all of the English language just the part I can understand. pljames

    what are you worried about? C´mon, I understood all of what you said, and I´m not a native speaker of English, so...don´t worry , be happy!

    yeah, I'm a native speaker and understood all of what you said! Try to read different types of books, however easy and you'll find you pick up new vocabulary! Daizee
