    Yeah maybe you are right

    so the problem in myself or the english language ?
    or maybe it's not my language at all
    Ok! we learn English grammar in school since I was little, but the application is not that easy for I have no one to talk to, though here in the Philippines we are surrounded by English materials that we understand clearly but can't speak it so fluently, it's still hard to find a partner to practice with.
    A few years ago, about 2 or 3, I made a decision to speak and write English excellently. It just took me that long to write like this. I am convinced I am not that good and needs more to learn so I expose myself to people who enjoys English just like I do.
    To learn English is to learn little by little, don't rush! You'll forget it sooner but try to assimilate every word, every phrase, every idiom you learn everyday. Use them. You will later on be surprised how far you've been with your English study!
    May you learn to love English sooner!!!

    G'day zhengrong,
    This will only be a problem for you when you converse with other English learners or if you bump into pedantic English speakers who intentionally try to be difficult about the placement of a comma or other nonsense.

    You have identified one of the great strengths of English. There are so many words to choose from the approximately 500,000 words in the general English lexicon and the additional 500,000 specialist words that you will always be able to find a word that means approximately what you mean and then the all important context comes into play.

    English is not so much word driven as context ruled.
    Just about every English word extant is modifiable by context so if you are confused about a word just read the whole sentence or paragraph and the context will almost always reveal what you want to know.

    Good luck with your learning,

    .,,
