    Hello double.

    Welcome to the forum.

    We do not have a chat facility on this forum. I'm sure if you Google "online English conversation lessons" or something similar you may find something.

    On this forum, everything is written. It is very important, therefore, to make sure that your written English is as correct and as readable as possible. Please follow the following pieces of advice:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with the relevant punctuation mark (full stop, question mark, exclamation mark) directly after the final word of the sentence.
    - Always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular).
    - Always capitalise the name of a language (English).
    - Use full English words (write "you", not "u"; write "want to", not "wanna").

    Re: ask aquestion

    I love those five points of yours which you regularly post to newbies, ems.

    They should be in the forum rules.

    What a good idea.

    Unfortunately, few people read the rules, but it's useful to have to send people to.

    Re: ask aquestion

    If someone could find a concise way of explaining how spaces are used with the punctuation marks, it could also be included and emphasized I think. The way many posters do this makes their posts very difficult to read.
