    You'd better not use it. You may misuse it and unintentionally offend somebody. If I were you I would start with something like "Have a nice day!

    Not a teacher just a day labourer, however, I know this phrase very well "i am suck". I heard this phrase being used many times among the Cantonese/Hong Kong people.

    If you are a Hong Kong guy talking to another Hong Kong guy it is perfectly OKAY to say it. Especially after dropping the 50 inch TV from the truck.

    The "am" from "I am suck" is to emphasize "suck"

    Re: i am beginner

    "I am suck" is completely unnatural to this native speaker.

    I suck at this = I'm no good at this.
    Yeah, he sucks at parallel parking = He is very bad at parallel parking

    "Suck" is not too offensive here. I don't know about elsewhere.

    I generally don't help English learners learn how to use vulgarities more effectively, so you're on your own with the "hell" one.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Streetstyle, always capitalise I, and the first word of every sentence.
