    Hi again Tom,
    Although grammer is not so important in English, but it's important to be skilled at it..
    I think the first step you should do is testing your level, for example if it's advanced so you should buy advance grammer book that will help u a lot...so it all depends on your level..
    In my case I'm using an interesting grammer book, that really helped me a lot, it's: "The advanced grammer book" by Jocelyn M.Steer and Karen A.Carlisi..
    And we should keep in mind that practice makes perfect, learning something without practicing it is really a waste of time..
    That's all what I can say.
    Hope I helped.
    Sara.

    jomo27,

    Yes, we can provide assistance. Submit specific questions and we will attempt to answer them for you.

    May I suggest that one of the ways to improve your writing skills is to forget about all of the bad habits you may have picked up from writing messages on the Internet. For example, do not use 'i' for 'I' or 'english' for 'English'. Let's start with some basics and work from there.

    Cheers,
    Amigos4

    Sara88,

    Great minds think alike! Obviously, you had advanced typing lessons and I didn't!

    Hi,

    I got a book "Be YourOwn English Teacher; Grammar Review". I review my grammar with this book once in a while and try them in the forum if my understand them well. You could do the same. As Sara suggested you to buy a book, you can test your skills in the forums afterwards.

    Great advice Blouen, actually I'm doing the same since I stopped my online English courses. I revise my grammer lessons and do some exercises after that if I'm not sure about any of answers and want to get more clarification, I come to the forum and post my questions....for example you studied a grammer rule and you had some examples in your book, the best way to understand this rule is to build your own sentences and come to post them here so you will get the correction or suggetions for better uses.
    Hope this will help.

    You mean you would like to neutralize your native accent?
    Why not, I think that's the easiest one to deal with in learning English.
