Dear English Language Gurus,
I speak and write English every day. But, I am not confident on what I speak and what I write. I always google to verify if the sentence is grammatically correct or not. I presume that the sentence is formatted correctly if I find more matches on the search engine (I know it is dumbest assumption). However, I am still not sure how to gain confidence in what I speak and write. Per my experience, reference books can help only up to some extent and cannot guide me on if I am making any mistake in the daily usage of English language. Can anybody suggest a good approach that can assess what error I am making on a daily basis and guide me to improve my English language speaking and writing skills.
Today, I am stuck with the words don't and doesn't. I am not sure if i am using these terms correctly in my sentences. Whether i am using one word in place of another. Is there any rule of thumb that I can use to decide on what to use these two words - "doesn't" and "don't".
Thank you very much,
