    I found your forum!

    English did exist somewhere in my past. Maybe it can be resurrected. Any volunteers?

    It seems to me that English exists in your present.

    And their future (if they reply!)
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    And their future?

    "Their" has lost a considerable amount of fluency of grammar and vocabulary by close exposure to the Southern Way of live and the local interpretation of language. Despite of the dimension of my vertical horizon - singular will do just fine. As far as coming back is concerned - I am a bad penny.

    But with no gender indicated, I had to take the safe option!

    We have an expression that the bad penny will return. If you used forged money, you'll get paid back.
