    correct my article

    Dear teacher, please help checking my grammer is correct or not. Thanks.

    I had been here for two years. As a new commer, I found many things, cultures and point of views are different from my orginal country. When my first month here last year, I wanted to return to my home because I have difficulty to suit in the new environment. Now, two years past, I felt it was better than last year. At least, I could go to the market to buy the dairy stuffs by myself. I could go to take bus to the place where I wanted to. Next year, my parent will come, I think I can help them to settle dowm here quickly as I have experienced the way, and this is also good for me as I can stay with my parent.

    Re: correct my article

    Dear Anglika, Thanks so much for the correction.

    So, the sentence should be corrected as "Now,I feel it is better than last year. At least I could go to the market to buy any food by myself."

    "I felt [You start the sentence with "now" = the present] it was better than last year. At least I could go to the market to buy the dairy stuffs [only dairy products? or any food?] by myself."

    Thanks again.

    Much better - you can omit the comma after "now", and perhaps use "my" instead of "any".
