    And please correct anything you find IT wrong so I learn from my mistakes.
    Many of your mistakes you can correct yourself.

    Try editing your post, making sure you start every sentence with a capital letter and ending it with the correct punctuation mark.

    I think you are right. But what do you really hear?
    Probably they say:"They're gonna eat it all". But you can't hear the "re" part well, because "r" is not fully pronounced.

    You said:"If you have any good websites please give them to me"
    I would say:"Please let me know If you know any good websites."
    or:"If you know any good websites please send me the addresses."

    I know I have punctuation mistakes but I just didn't care because I was concentrating on the language nothing else.

    Thank you for the correction but they are silly mistakes, I was in a hurry, but I hoped you could answer my questions

    You will read 'They gonna eat' in very informal writing such as internet chatting. The correct written form is 'They're (They are) going to eat'. When people say this in informal conversation, it can sound like 'they're gonna' or even 'they gonna'.

    We are meeting up tonight?
    Isnít it correct to say we are meeting tonight?
    Yes it is, but it is also acceptable these days to use 'up'


    Letís start off with....
    Isnít it enough to say let's start or begin with.....
    Both are acceptable.
    Please ask different questions in different threads. If you don't, threads can become quite confusing.

    Re: i'm so confused pls help me

    "Meeting up" or "starting off" are common phrases. Yes, you can simply say "meeting" or "starting." Either way is acceptable.

    Another confusion matter:
    I prefer "Whatever you can" or "anything you can" but I am not sure if "everything you can" is wrong here.

    I prefer "Another matter of confusion" but I don't think that "Another confusion matter" is wrong.
